White Houses by by Amy Bloom: Summary and reviews
Designed and built by the brains behind prominent landmarks like the iconic Raffles Hotel and the Victoria Memorial Hall, architect Regent Alfred John Bidwell fused Tudor-inspired styles with tropical sensibilities to create one gorgeous pad that retains his English roots. Drawing inspirations from the Malay style of elevating the house off the ground with pillars and arches, with its ground floor constructed with tiles to maintain nighttime coolness.
It gets even better — the high-steeped roofs help control rainfall while doubling as a chimney-like system that draws hot air upwards, providing a well-ventilated space for its occupiers. The air circulated beneath the elevated house not only cools it, but also prevents attacks from termites, and damages caused by flash floods.
Nowadays, many of the remaining houses at Nassim Road, Seton Close, Chatsworth Park, Goodwood Hill, and Alexandra Park are either residential properties for expats or foreign embassy offices. Those in Dempsey Hill and Rochester Park are mostly restaurants. A mostly British residential neighbourhood with a grisly past — it was once the battle site between the British and Japanese forces and a Prisoner of War POW camp. The most iconic black and white house there is The Beaulieu House , which is currently a seafood restaurant.
In , the Singapore Land Authority SLA introduced an open-bidding system where black and white houses are leased for two-year terms.

Even harder for Hick, she has to learn to share Eleanor with the legions on whom she lavishes her sincere attention.
