Not helping any with Singapore’s image as home to a bunch of crazy-rich Asians comes the almost too-ridiculous-to-be-true story of a man who rented a swimming pool for 10,000 Singapore dollars ($7,040) a month.

Faced with the prospect of not being able to swim in his condominium pool, which is closed because of Singapore’s strict lockdown measures, the British expat cast around his neighbors’ properties.

He initially wanted to lease the entire SGD$30,000 bungalow in Sentosa Cove, an upscale residential area on an island off Singapore’s south coast. But the monthly rent of SGD$30,000 was too high, considering it would have been on top of the not insubstantial amount he was paying for a nearby apartment, according to Lester Chen, a real estate agent at Singapore Realtors Inc.
