  1. Cat-traps aka spikes are from DAISO.

    White mesh u can buy from places like Homefix, then cut and tie to gate yourself.

    Bamboo chick, i did together with my bamboo blinds on balcony... many contractors can do for u, no need any particular one ;)

    Send u a message on pic.

  2. I know this dilemna :)

    We put up bamboo chick between the living room and balcony. The windows came with ledges outside, and are laid with spiky cat-traps from $2-dollar kind of shops. Main gate has white mesh on the lower 1metres, attached by cable-ties, and not terribly bad-looking..

    So far so safe ;) Hope this helps.

  3. We have an IKEA Bedingger sofa-bed in our guestroom, upgraded at Ikea to 'best' mattress available.

    Turn out to be a really comfortable sleep. I'm using it for afternoon naps npw :D

    Seahorse-mattress kind of sleepers will like this sofa-bed.

  4. ....glass hob too. pretty also no use. u cannot wipe immediately after cooking something. the glass will crack

    Hi pinklady, no need to be overly-careful with the glass hob. I cannot be bothered with coming back for the cleaning job a second time, and thus had been soap-wiping doen my glass hob immediately after cooking for the last 3yrs. More cautious abt blistering my skin against the heated pot-holders than cracking the glass. ;)

  5. *Hand up* I use!

    Excellent household equipment for spring-cleaning. Use it for all the glass surfaces and it worked satisfactorily. Shower screens' scums can be stubborn, i need to steam them down a few time and remove progressively. There are only toilet and kitchen tiles (all the rest in laminated floor), and the karcher works fine in removing grease.

    One more function for the karcher which most of you may not know : Sterilise your garden. I steamed down the balcony-garden and corridor-growing area twice a year. Floor, pots and racks, AND SOIL. Be careful with delicate plants (eg, lavender, of soft-stemmed flowers). Once i steamed a pot of mealy-bug infested plant too, and it worked!

    It is a piece of equipment I deem indispensible twice a year. For weekly maintenance, hmm, there are other lighter tools to use.

  6. I think you can look for another contractor.

    Don't even use a contractor who does not have any license.

    Add on a tiny qualification to your advise ;)

    Contractors who dun have a license usually have a business-arrangement with a contractor who has a license who will apply for his permit... Double-check to confirm though.
