HDB flats in Singapore have not shrunk, we've grown fatter!

For those of you who think that HDB flats nowadays are getting smaller and smaller, you will be glad to know that National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan has said that HDB flat sizes have not shrunk in recent years. In fact they have been the same size for the past 15 years! So if we are to believe what he said, it only means one thing: Singaporeans have grown fatter. Even Bart Simpson agrees.

Update: Looks like someone got his facts wrong!!!

Compare these two Straits Times articles. One was published last year and the other was out yesterday. One says HDB flats are shrinking to maximise land and the other says HDB flat sizes have remained unchanged. So which one is telling the truth?
