  1. thinner is usually what pple will recommend - cos it wont cause any other disasters(see below). acetone = can remove lots of stuffs(stains, paint, oil stains...etc) but it melts plastics!!! 1 drop alone will see your plastic discoloured/damaged. use acetone with a lot of care. if got paint on your aluminium/steel windows or grill can use acetone also. NEVER on plastics. After my renovation completed there were lots of unknown stubborn stains on my tiles - tried nearly everything available in NTUC, scrub like a old maid - yet the stains minimises only by 10-30%. When i use acetone - I only need to wipe it off once and stains are gone.

  3. it's everywhere. downlights that uses energy saving bulbs. bulb burnt, change bulb. cos the ballast is inside the $5 energy saving bulb. choice is - replace a $5 bulb or remove the downlight or pull out the wires and replace the $15 ballast? if you dont know how to change - got to pay for a electrician to do it for you some more.
  4. go to www.youtube.com search mythbusters finger print door locks (shown on discovery channel) and enjoy the show!!!
  5. 1)hack n retile whole house plus 3 toilets and 1 kitchen and balcony 3x toilets already 9k, kitchen at least 4k-5k, ground and 2ndflr at least another 12k 2)change windows and grills this is actually the cheapest. if windows are from hdb, keep it. I didnt do grill for MBR, if Mr spiderman can climb in, he can have everything. no grill(cage for balcony) , only do grill separating livingroom and balcony. 3)rewire whole house below 3k 4)2 wardrobes in mbr subjective - from 2k onwards 5)1 kitchen cabinet subjective - from 2k onwards. 6)paint whole house below 3k

  13. go make friends with pple who has a DANG KEE neighbour then you will feel you aint so unlucky after all. when you burn so much sandalwood in your house - you wanna close your door? reminds me of smoked salmon.
  14. agree. it's one of those monkey see monkey do thing that refuse to die with the IDs/contractors. unless you want to wash your kitchen ala hawker centre style.
  15. for downlights - get those without ballast. cos when the ballast kaputz - you will have a hard time trying to replace it.
  16. 1) partly is ok - if worried - put a partition/curtain. 2) what door? bedroom door? 3) no worries. kitchen = fire

  20. 3 small ways that will definitely cut your PUB $$$ guranteed,stamp,chop,signed,thumbprinted. 1) never put any electrical/electronics on standby - that small little light blink blink for 24hours eats into your bill. manufacturers claimed it's only 1watt per hour - but lots of pple already tested...some are up to 5watts per hour.do your math. 24hrs x 30days x 365days..... 2) never use a electrical thermo pot. 3) never use a electrical water kettle.
