  1. i was looking for subway tiles as well but wasn't able to find any at lian seng hin and soon bee huat. asked my PM about it and she told me it will require more labour to cut & lay these tiles. funny how its supposed to be a cheap option in the states..

    yes, i checked lian seng hin too and they didn't have it. i know, it sells for $1.20/sqft or something at home depot in the US. and it's supposed to be THE cheap tile. not the case here. actually, my dad has them in his toilet, but he's lived in this place for about 15 years. i guess they had these tiles before, but no longer. sadness. if only i could hack his tiles and install them on my wall. haha

  2. oh no no not the furniture casa. it's the casa that's a distributor of various home appliances, for eg., elba and EF...

    anyway...if the product is good enough...you won't even need after sales service! :) good luck on your EF...let me know how it goes :)

  3. no i have not heard of that...is it true? I bought a Elba washer which would aso be under casa.... :(

    I had a great experience too at Mega and ended up buying most of my electrical & appliances there. which outlet did u go?

    i remember reading from this forum (can't remember which thread) that the after service is not that good. casa has had a few problems with that apparently. that's part of the reason i'm so hesitant to get EF.

    i went to mega discount at kallang leisure park, and think i'm going to end up buying many of my appliances there. the guy there knew i was comparing quotes at the time so he asked me to go compare, and when i was ready to buy, to go back there and he'll give me his best price. so...i think that's what i'll do.

  4. i aso bought the EF hob and hood though not even installed yet. I was also attracted to the cast iron :D seems like a very established brand and price is attractive. Where did u look at urs? u can go to Everjoint, Goh Ah Bee or like me Mega Discount. Price are nego there but cash terms if you ok with it.

    oh so you also have the 3 burner cast iron one? i love that look and it's so hard to find (unless you want to spend a fortune on those upmarket brands). i went to mega discount store, an experience i really enjoyed because the staff are friendly, easy going, and they give good quotes. my ID also tells me it's a reliable brand...i guess i won't know until i actually use it...i did hear that after service by casa is quite lacking though. have you heard about that?

  5. hi eelinn I heard fr my ID e/f is an establish brand in tis market lar. Personally Im shortlisting E/f and Rinnai. See anywan can to share here so that we can make good decisions :D so far ur research E/f is the cheapest??

    Thanks Pinkieberrie. Yes, so far EF is the cheapest. Then there's also UNO, but I don't like the UNO look as much. Still torn, but I've narrowed down my options to EF and Electrolux....

  6. Looking around for Hobs and Hoods, and have basically narrowed down my options to:

    1. EF

    2. Electrolux

    3. Ariston

    4. Rinnai

    Obvious reason for picking EF is its price, but also because it has the cast iron on stainless steel look that I love. The other brands don't seem to have that. I read through the reviews and most seem to like Rinnai, but Electrolux and Ariston don't seem to do too bad either but are expensive.

    Has anyone used EF before? And if yes, do you have any comments about this brand?


  7. hi both my toilet walls are cement screed and my living hall flooring. flooring cost ard 1.2k with stainless steel strips. but i learnt my lesson, dun believe any so called ID who claimed they can do. apparently to achieve a smooth and even effect you have to use self levelling compound. drill your contractor to show you their past workmanship first.

    Hi, yours looks like a 3room flat. the cement screeding is very cheap. my contractors are charging 2.2 and above. what do the stainless steel strips do? do you have a layer of varnish over your cement screed?
