An HDB Has Been Transformed into a Home Theatre Despite the Limited Space

I love my cinemas and films.

Some of my favourite films are 2001: A Space Odyssey, Another Earth, The Fountain, In the Mood for Love –

Tis’ from 2001: A Space Odyssey, I kid you not

As if hearing my thoughts, my editor BH telepathically opined: “Eh W, no one knows those films lah, can you use more popular ones like Avengers or Transformers

In a quickfire-telepathic rebut, I shot back: “But those aren’t films, they are just keyboard shortcuts like Ctl + C and Ctl + Z.”

“You are fired!”

Nahhhh, kidding.

Just a few weeks back, my hamsum colleague ZH, who happens to be on MC today without seeing a doctor (because we are also called Progressive Feed), wrote  “New Super High Ses Cinema With Lounge & Beer Opens With Low-SES Prices.”

Because we have a lot of Good-ily lobangs and news that you can share with your friends to impress the hell out of them.


My telepathic editor BH nods emphatically in agreement.

Home Theatre in Boon Lay (Not Jurong Point)

I majorly digressed though.

Because truth be told, for an article with a subject matter that requires a tonne of images but scarcely any words, I’ve got to work damn hard towards my word count.

Nonetheless, I present to you a Boon Lay Avenue 4 room flat with a “Modern Contemporary X Cinematic.”

Blue Velvet is also incidentally a uber-awesome show.

Don’t blame me though if it’s not your cup of tea.

Oh, come back already, heng arr

As you can clearly tell, despite the limited space in a BTO; a home theatre, 4 real humans, 1 real baby and at least 15 other superheroes and 1 big-bad purple dude is housed comfortably within this presumably 92 sqm of living space.

If you are curious, the other rooms are still intact too and here’s some evidence of their existence.

I count 1, 2, 3 rooms
