Are bomb shelters standard in Singaporean apartments? If so, that's a bit scarey.

Bomb (or emergency) shelters are standard in HDBs (public housing). Never had any in condos or a house we lived in but a friend has just moved to a nearly new condo and that has one. She's going to use it as a walk-in pantry.

Bomb shelters are compulsory in all Israeli houses and flats. Seeing that we are bombed constantly.
