  1. SERIOUS. but u drove la... i'm wondering if they will allow me to carry thru customs lo.. I take public transport. haha!!
  2. hullo, for these few months, i think i only used both at the same time once. boiling soup and frying stuff. it worked perfectly for me for that ONE time. think the only prob is when i'm using a small pot, the safety feature takes over and switch off every 2 mins. this happens to the induction side only. if i'm not wrong, there is a recommended pot size (i cant rem the actual size though) the ceramic one doesnt have this problem. in fact, i can put anything on top, like my glass of drink to warm it up and the handle doesnt get hot. it was sooooooooo good... we ordered 2 large portions for 4 pax. lol =P can tabao back or not ah?
  3. I think it's the same one. along the road rite? next to city square.
  4. We shall not tok abt SongCho here ok? i ban! hehe.. anyway.. honestly, i think the one i'm using is good enough. coz firstly, no kids, . secondly, no rough usage. lastly, i might move out after a few years or get a reno done again. i get bored easily la. must change once in a while. =x
  5. Din mean to offend u when i said song cho for well to do. i'm not one good with words and very often say what i dun mean to say.. u get what i mean? agree on the different priorities... haha.. like how i got LED lights.
  6. haha.. so they dun even know their products. sigh.. wat to do? when they told me not SS, immediately put me off. but mine is ok so far... when my cheap shelving rust/spoil, i'll update!! thanks macuser77 & ucypmas for the detailed info man.... repeating sth doesnt mean it's true. =.= will rem this.
  7. yah lah... provided we are intending to live in the same flat for long. Moreover, Song cho is for the well to do. not for poor birds like me. hehe.. i'm just saying it's not what many pple think it is which is Stainless steel lo.
  8. yes.. I definitely got more to grumble about. the list is almost endless. I can tell u, my mosaic tiles were a disappointment. (TOILET) 1. not straight. no need to use ruler oso can see. seng ngeh quite badly. I ask them redo.. same result. 2. unprofessional. the mosaic is black and white. but at the corners, two columns of white tiles meet. -.- AT EVERY CORNER. how ugly rite. 3. my piping doesn't flow well, sometimes water take so long to go down. 4. my floors are black tiles. the grout in between is inconsistent. some white, some black, some non existant (aka hole) 5. pd door not smooth.. I told contractor.. he say, ok wat.. if ask the pd door guy come down he will think we very ngeow. -.- this is only the toilet hor.. still got long list. I can tell u they are very good salesperson. naïve me was sold. hahaha.. sorry.. I feel like an old grumpy lady. but i'm really unhappy la! let me fa xie! hahaha..
  9. i'm sure it's good. it's double plated chrome mah.. means u knock 1 layer, still got additional layer of protection. how I know it's not SS? I asked song cho salesperson at kallang if it's stainless steel. she said no. haha.. is it too direct?
  10. Kitchen shelving if i rem correctly, Excel is also not stainless steel. it's all chrome coated... same as mine. but mine not double coated la. lol. but price is like 25% of Song Cho. Side track abit... i'm looking forward to my JB Fishhead curry trip this weekend. lol. anyone tried it? Kam Leng fishhead. they only sell 1 dish ONLY.
  11. yes.. I was attracted by the price too. but they have a lot of add ons. like windows, hacking, etc. I disliked that he tried to quote the min. so that we will choose ID note. He admitted this. the final price is like another $10k more. like I ask him to quote for me kitchen quartz top, he insisted on quoting solid top. then do top up after that. initially thot top up was few hundred.. everything adds up I guess. then the tiles too.. his px for tiles only $2.40. others were going at $3. for some tiles I chose were also $2.40. but due to size difference, ID note also charged extra top up. it's ridiculous. I really do not recommend them. painting sucks, tiling sucks. these are basics. my kitchen laminate got an airbubble. and it has only been wat? 5 months? sorry.. I get worked up. coz I pay so much to see slipshod work. oh... and FYI, song cho is not SS. it's just double coated chrome. way overpriced. dun be fooled.
  12. I ordered way before my reno started. so I cant tell you how fast they took to deliver.. I had to asked them to hold the shipment. lol. if I rem correctly, the 4 dining chairs cost abt S$140. (excluding shipping) my table is customised by contractor. For the window, I think some forummers say u can install padlocks on your own. but to each his own la. some say grilles made of aluminium, so it's easily breakable. so use padlock on grille oso no use. u gotta decide for yourself lo.
  13. hey Vanessa and Sabrina bought the shelves at http://www.shanghaitonglee.com.sg/ go check it out. prices are VERY reasonable.
  14. Hi Sabrina Did u read my earlier posts? I did not recommend them to anyone. Everyday I see their work at home, I get reminded and feel upset. For more details.. I do not mind watsapping u. Oh and the interiors, I bought from SG. Not tb. U got to get measurement and let ur contractor customized the cabinets. U can get from excel or a smaller shop.. Can't rem the name. Let u know when I recall. Lol. Getting old.
  15. hahaha.... the pup's 8 months old now. just had her spaying done 10 days ago. vet says her skin is very sensitive. coz turn red (rashes) at the parts where they shaved. but luckily she recovering fast. some pics of her....
  16. hi guys... also to note, when the guys open my window and grilles, the alarm would not sound as the alarm usually detects forced entry of the door. there would be no sign at all of anyone entering my apartment. they opened both windows and grilles and can close and LOCK them back to original state in less than 2 mins. so have to ensure ur ADT or other security systems works for windows that are opened from the outside without permission and force.
  17. of coz got grilles la. but as previously posted, the men were able to remove both grilles and windows. and my grilles are aluminium, they say hollow inside, can be broken easily. and as per post 669, just have to press the "button" at the top to unlock. it's just one more step. i wont say it's difficult la.
  18. anyway... i was telling you guys the police took 40 mins to arrive and i had to stall them. i was panicking and din really know wat to do. btw i also called Town council to check if they are aware of such cases, and they are not. (sleeping i guess) when police arrive, they were kinda not useful. (to call them useless would have been very rude). They actually sided guys saying "u let them in rite?" i told him, yes. coz if i dun do the locks, and they have proven they can open my windows easily. what else could i have done? they can come in anytime within seconds! we also check the website ACRA and they are registered. i think over 20 years. The boss was very nice. kept reassuring that they are legit. and offered us a discount. saying doesnt wan any unhappiness. i oso scared la.. i say nmind.. wats done is done. and will pay for watever they have installed. but he insisted he do the last room and charge me $250 for all. 50% cheaper???! i think the locks are not worth that price ($45) if u ask me. but the way they put in.. (you can include transportation, workmanship etc.) "noone will do it for this price." i quote one of the men. i suggest you ask your contractor to secure your windows and grilles before handover. dun be like the rest of us. stupid stupid. i dun even know i was an open target till last weekend.
  19. problem is, we are corridor unit. no casement windows allowed. my other windows (facing the other side, non corridor) are all casement lo. if i have a choice i wont put sliding windows.
  20. mine looks different from yours. see >>>> If you see closely, there is a catch at the topside of the lock where u can just press in to unlock. without the use of the key. coz the guy explained that they modify this to suit windows with grilles. with the grilles in place, it's hard to insert the key to unlock.
  21. yesyes... $45 per lock and each window panel requires 1 lock. for mine, a total of 12 window panels facing corridor. so $540. the guy did mention abt $400 plus when i asked him how much doing the locks would cost me. I did call the police. coz firstly, when i asked for namecard, they dun have. secondly, when i wanna take a look at their "receipt" book, they were jumpy. told me not to take photo blah blah blah... there were a total of 5 persons. the boss is called Jack and he appears to be very patient. extremely actually. even when police came.. he was still smiley and said he understand.. and that he doesnt wan us to be unhappy. and jus4fun, u are so right. there was simply no time to think. they were like pushing pushing pushing.... after using scare tactic, i can hardly get my thoughts together lo. i can show u the photos too... saw online these locks cost $4 each. when i told them, they say, these locks were customised. different from the ones online. which i agree. theirs can be unlocked without the key. have to show u guys the picture to get a better idea.
  22. i was so flustered la.. din know what to do. he asked for a drink. and asked if he can come in. my fren was ard.. so ok.. he came in.. then asked if we wanna do.. i was like still in a daze. then while fren toking to him, i went to do some research. found nothing but some forum claiming it's a scam. but how is it a scam if they can open my window!! i got really worried. and so i called the police. btw, police took like 40 mins to arrive. i could have been dead by then lo.
  23. Hi all.. it's probably the same guy or same company if they charge $45 per lock. I think i havent gotten over the shock. =( he said all new windows and grilles are like that. the old ugly hdb windows cannot be removed. he also said," your contractor din tell u rite? coz if he told you, u wont change the windows."
  24. Hi guys.. i know i havent been active these few months. But something happened last weekend and i'm compelled to share it here. i was cleaning up the house last saturday and there was this guy peeping thru the window. then he knocked on the door. i opened the door thinking he was the delivery guy. (i was waiting for a delivery of dog food) But he's not. first thing he said, "do you know your windows can be removed? i can show you ." i told him to show.. and he did. even thought my windows were locked, he could easily open them. less than 3 seconds, both windows and the grilles (also locked) were opened. he could also lock it back to the original state. can u imagine how i would have felt? reno less than 3 months ago, and this was happening. the hse could have been broken in (technically) and i wouldnt even have known!
  25. oops... hahaha... din realised the different nick leh. i used my friend's pc and forgot to change to my login.
