Chapter 3 : Apartments, the landscape of Selbring

I arrived at the Majesty Hotel for the meet up with my new colleague who will also be my host for my time in Cannasera. A slim, tall man who was waiting at the Hotel Lobby came to welcome me.

"You must be Mr Yhonsae. I am Ben Honshau. I'll be your coordinator and assistant here"

After I settled in to my hotel room where I would be staying for now, until my apartment is ready, Ben briefed me some background information of how the Ministry works here and some of the details i would need before I start work at the office officially tomorrow. Thereafter he took me to the different estates of the city for a short visit.


Pic A : This is Blocks 201 to 205 of Lower Fignam Avenue. The government has planned residential developments that for every 3 grids of residential development, there will be a grid for recreational (such as parks, walkways, playgrounds etc). And because parking is a problem in Selbring, multi-storeyed carparks are built.


Pic B : One of the older estates in the city. This is the Empress Road estates. They have been here since the 1970s.


Pic C : Apart from apartments/ flats, low rise residentials also exist in Selbring. However they will only be found in the outskirts of the city centre. The relatively richer Tigerians are able to live in such houses. These houses are private developments. In other words, the government only builts the basic infrastructure (like roads etc) and have no control over these developments.


Pic D: The Sepeling Canal Estate. The Sepeling Canal is one of the many canals in the city that handles the water current that flows in and out of the city. The government invested hefty amounts of money to built these canals to prevent seasonal floods that are common in the city


Pic E :  A closeup of Sepeling Canal and the residential development around it.

Nice CJ! Did you get your inspiration from Singapore, because it seems a lot like it (coming from a Singaporean)!

Just a bit of advice. Can you next time show us a picture of the Canal in the daylight? I was having difficulty finding where the Canal was. Other then that, I really admire your planning techniques for the City.
