Smaller homes but not poorer quality of living: HDB - Yahoo! via @yahoosg

I bought a 1975 3-room flat at Marine Parade in 2006 at $220,000. I has a big bedroom and hall. Infront of my block is open field with a basketball court. Behind is a School. Walking distance to 2 markets. A privision shop is just one block away. It's windy throughtout the year. My friend bought a 4-room HDB flat at Punggol at about $450,000 recently. Front, back, left and right all flats. The bedroom is almost fill up with a Queen size bed, the hall is as small as my bedroom. He need to walk about 30 minutes to the nearer foodcourt and take bus/train to the nearer market. This is not poorer quality of living? I am not sure, but my friend always envy me staying in an old estate. Did HDB CEO ever stay in a HDB flat? If not, how does he know?
