Does Estates look like Stepford

Have you seen the movie: Stepford Wives.
In that movie, all the wives talk the same, houses look similar, everything looks perfectly similar.

If you visit many estates (as an outsider) and start driving around it, you start to appreciate the beauty of the houses and designs. Then at some point, you get the feeling that these houses are the same.

Have you noticed that or I am just the odd one? Sometimes when driving there I just feel that one is at Stepford Estate. Atleast the men at Stepford were part of a club and women were programmed roborts.

hehehehe guys

i dont think i will ever stay in an estate, sometimes you miss that kasi life seating outside with your neighbors talking and laughing out loud, in an estate you not allowed to make a noise sometimes you have visitors and you wanna be free and laugh and do all sorts but you have to think oohhh we cant make a noise,

my Mkhukhu is better atleast my son is able to play outside hahahahah

You forgot about " Special Levies"  and maintanance to " maintain standard of the estate" 

while in your mkhukhu there is an iShack for your lighting, kids play outside till is time to sleep (yes it is safe/common for kids to play outside in mkhukhu areas than suburb)

I understand the procedures to follow (which are daunting) but what is also irritating is the requirements that those decorations or extentions have to follow.

When visiting other estates dont you feel them boring and monotomous?

Sometimes one miss the life in mkhukhu where he is able to do anything within his yard boundries.
