Less than a week has passed since she was sworn in, but one property agent is already taking advantage of new president Halimah Yacob’s newfound fame to sell a HDB flat in Yishun.

Then again, he must be pretty desperate considering Yishun’s reputation as Siao Lang Town.

The property agent, 35-year-old Lawrence Ng from ERA Singapore, advertised the flat as being “one floor below” President Halimah’s jumbo flat aka the “Yistana” at Yishun Avenue 4.

Among its unique features include a “security officer” and “24-hour surveillance” – you know lah, siao lang town.

The flat was advertised online on platforms like PropertyGuru and Carousell.

The flat-owner, a civil servant by the name of Wong, said he had planned to sell the flat even before Mdm Halimah became president.

President Halimah has chosen to continue living in her Yishun Jumbo flat while working from the Istana.

So, would you pay close to half a million bucks to live just a little bit lower than Singapore’s 8th president?
