  1. Thank you Freb, Your design is nice too. Happy to see that your contractor is willing to rectify for you those unacceptable works, enjoyed reading your t-blog.
  2. Hi Wei Yan, The one that I showed on the picture was out of stock, but you can try purchasing it now. Link In the end I got was this one. Personally I did not use it much after I got those draining bowls. Because: 1) It takes up space. 2) I like to separate those bowls/plates that I have soaped into the smaller portion, hence I have to remove that whenever I am going to do the dishes. 3) I prefer the smaller drainage holes. This is however, more suitable for fruits and bigger cuts of vegetables etc. So probably if I purchased the one that I originally wanted, it would probably have been better. However, I am not too keen on the wood handles after seeing how my wooden stool that I placed in the bathroom turned out. Lol. That was a regretful purchase because fungus started to grow after 1 month plus. I have since replaced the chair with a cheap plastic version. Other than this, the rest of the taobao stuffs are still working fine.
  3. I took a direct cab from bugis to tampoi. From what I know I think the bus only go to the custom. You can try google if you want to go by the bus route because I'm not too sure too. 😅
  4. Follow them on Facebook under 'eubiq', they will post whenever they have road shows frequently with offers. The offers are always different so I also cannot guarantee what you will get. I bought mine almost 5 months ago, pricing has always been increasing. Nevertheless, that's how I know where to buy my eubiq track.
  5. I bought the table at approx. $500 after exchange rate and my freight charge is charged altogether with the rest of the taobao goods that are lumped together so I cannot get an accurate assessment. It can take up to a month or longer to ship here. For accurate assessment, please get peeka to quote you. TYVM too.
  6. Aww, I really wish you read through my t-blog more carefully. I stated the eubiq track pricing in one of my earlier posts. It is best to get it during their roadshow. I know the cheapest for 60cm can go for as low as $99. I got my novita from best denki. My promo was $2199, additional $100 for installation. I know now they priced it at a much more expensive range, but they give free air purifier instead. But to me, it is just buying the air purifier and paying for a higher price. It is very convenient to use and my man likes it a lot though.
  7. Awww, I would love to have you as my next door neighbour! It would have been lovely but it okay because you are the next block only. I personally don't find many insects at home, only the occasional visit of the pesky houseflies when I happen to cook. Do sweep along the corners of the house, there seem to be a number of long legged spiders. I always crush them when I mop the house. I think you can monitor first before you decide to purchase the insect nets since they don't come cheap and seem troublesome when you need to open/close the windows. I heard it would be ready on the third quarter, we can only keep praying.
  8. Sharing some more photos of my house, post-renovation state because I got a wide angle camera. Living room Foyer + dining area If you noticed my door lock, I have started using digital door lock with burglary alarm. Feels safer and more convenient now. My lovely kitchen. The tap is a must buy. It makes cleaning so much easier. Common bathroom, finally can get a full picture of it. MBR MBR bathroom. That's all folks. Till next time~
  9. If you have read the previous replies, my wallpaper installer is from my ID and as you know ID do not give out the contacts of their subcontractors because this will affect their rice bowl. If you are interested to look for an ID, you can go to my ID Yvette (Rezt & relax) and get a quote. As for the grilles, Here is a list of what I did: 1) slim grilles for living room and 3 bedrooms. (I did not do for the small encasement windows, redundant to me) 2) service yard windows 3) service yard grilles My BTO is standard so my living room is 3/4 length windows and bedrooms 1/2 length. Total: 2k+ I asked the man if there is any regrets in doing such expensive window grilles (normal grilles would costs about 1k) and till date, he still think it is worth doing as the normal one can be very noisy and flimsy. Furthermore, we opted for encasement slim grilles that will make cleaning a lot easier. Previously, the man and I considered installing those invisible grilles. However, on further reading, I read that it's just wire and actually stretchable when you pull it apart. Plus can be snapped away using wire cutters. It is also difficult to get them replaced as they need to drill holes on the wall and they cannot drill on the same holes ever again. Plus if you seen hamster cages that got gnawed on, you will know that peeled wire easily rust. Price wise is about the same so we chose the obvious choice and to install the grilles from pang giap.
  10. No sorry, I can't help you on this. Since your friend recommended this place to you, you can consider venturing there as well. Just that I know Tampoi has what I want so I just head there straight away since I do not possess a car. Save some time and effort for the rest of stuffs for the house.
  11. Hi neighbour, Don't worry about your choice of curtains. You will grow to like them gradually. I think they look good by the way. I am sure that you will always find what you are looking for in taobao! Btw , I'm staying at 260C but then not the side that is facing you. I'm sure you will enjoy staying in your new house. I can't wait for the supermarket and eating place to be open as soon as possible.. It is kinda hard to do grocery though. Hopefully in a few months' time!!
  12. Hi guys, I have been staying in my crib for 3-4 months now and every day is perfect. I love my bedroom still and it still feels like waking up in a luxury hotel everyday. All made possible at a fraction of its price due to taobao. I could never imagine I am able to stay in such a pretty room last time as the prices of french furniture is especially expensive. Yesterday one of the decals that I bought for my kitchen glass door arrived! I have been procrastinating about installing decal for the kitchen glass door as we usually open it when it's not in use. So sometimes when I am deep frying it, I would close the door and forget that I actually close it. I almost walked into the door a couple of times. *laugh at myself* Finally found one that I think looks really pretty. I am glad that how it turns out. No more knocking into the kitchen glass door now.
  13. Hi uginfit, No problem. I had a hard time convincing the man to go to tampoi because we do not own a car and he thought it was very troublesome to travel to and fro without transportation as well. However, after this pleasant experience, we will go there again should we need any more new fans for a new place or whatsoever. Even after paying $90 for transportation, we find it very reasonable given that the exchange rate was good (now is even better than the last time I went btw) and considering that even ikea charges transportation fees. A tip to save on transportation fees is to find your neighbour who is also keen to go together with their partner (group of 4) to take the taxi from bugis to save on the trip to tampoi and then take the private car back together as well.
