  1. Hi all, Anyone has any recommendations for CCTV & installation for HDB flat? I need real-time recording on cloud, and tamper-proof CCTV camera. Thanks.
  2. Hi, is there anyone who is actively looking/arranging for a group buy for doors & gate for HDB flats? Looking at 2 br doors, 1 main gates & 1 bi-fold door for toilet. Anyone has any contact and price to share? Thanks!
  3. Hi skb, so you charge the battery every week? Isn't it too often? I find the app function useful to see if anyone is loitering outside the door real-time. My things outside the flat, at various times, have been disturbed. Without the app, I will need to retrieve the SD card to view the footage. How long will a typical battery for a wireless door viewer last (without video recording & PIR sensor function)? And same question with the PIR sensor + recording? Any idea? With regards, BubblyBee
  4. Hi, does anyone has any recommendation for door viewer with display and door bell function? Looking for a suitable set with the following requirement. long battery life (~6 months, at least) able to record images and having PIR sensor + recording is a plus easy to install (with english manual) app function to see/interact with person via an app - hopefully I saw this on Qoo10 - http://list.qoo10.sg/item/EQUES-R21-DIGITAL-DOOR-PEEPHOLE-VIEWER-SURVEILLANCE-VIA-SMARTPHONE/515696474 Not sure on quality of product. If anyone has used this model before / using it currently, or has any recommendation of other brands, please do provide feedback and suggestion. Thanks. BubblyBee
  5. Thanks babe0102 for offering to provide your electrician and contractor's numbers. I found a couple of electricians and have confirmed one of them.
  6. Anyone has any contacts to share that you have personally used the electricisn''s service and you are satisfied?
  7. Hi,anyone has contacts of qualified/certified and reliable electrician? Anyone who has done rewiring of a 4 room resale flat advise on an estimated quote I should be looking at? Thanks!
  8. Mine is resale flat. My ID told me doors can do later after renovation as not to have scratches. But I want to see designs and place deposit. Have you received any interest from others?
  9. May I know what WC did you buy? Is it good? Where to get it from? I have started reading maybe 1 to 2 pages of your blog so haven't got to the WC part, etc. Information overloading is possible since you are quite detailed. Better to have more information, than no information. Where is your house located? It is very spacious and the design concept is very nice. Read that you are using OPSH for WIW, kitchen cabinet and TV area? I am using OPSH too but only for the WIW.
  10. Hi Lazyfatcat007, thanks, hope to have a fuss-free reno experience. Looking forward to hearing if your electrician does freelance work? Anyone know what the estimated cost for electrical re-wiring for a resale 4 room will be? I am using Eubiq system, so will need the electrician to lay the cables without points at various places and points at dedicated places like fridge, washing machine, oven, etc. Thanks!
  11. Thanks Ks Toh. Different opinions by different forumers. So confused. The most often cited brand that I come across in a few posts is Baron. Maybe I should try this out? I was reading your T-Blog yesterday, came across it cos of electrical works. Like your vertical garden. Will be continuing reading your post after work today. Very informative
  12. Hi kaisermisaki, I am not able to PM you. I guess your message quote is full. Do you have an email I can contact you by? I have a few questions to ask you with regards to reno. Thanks.
  13. Hi Lazyfatcat007, I came across your T-Blog today and read through the 9 pages of sharing experience. I am also doing the reno for my flat. Mine started in December 2015 and expected to be completed by end of next month. Hoping that the ID can complete sooner. So far, the wall tiles are not completed yet for kitchen and 2 toilets and ID said that floor tiles will start only when the wall tiles are completed. I noticed that a few forumers commented that certain brand/model of WC do not have strong flush. How can I test this? The shops I visited for WC shopping mentioned that all their models are the same and only difference is in the design. So far, I am only doing the sit testing to see if I feel comfortable. Is your electrician from your ID? Does he do freelance work? Is his work of good quality? If yes, can you PM his contact? Thanks.
  14. I am looking for room doors, main door and main gate. When do you intend to place a deposit? I have not decided on the company yet. So far, visited Yontat. Didn't like the service. I went with my ID and no staff attended to us. My ID went to ask for information on a door and was told what is there is there, kinda of reply (based on my ID). Have you been to Siong Door? Is there service better there?
  15. How do you find AD&S? How is the workmanship for carpentry and tiling works? The company is not HDB-registered. Any concerns?
  16. Hi fellow forumers, I need your inputs on where I can purchase affordable, durable and reasonably good quality appliances and accessories for the kitchen and bathrooms. I have sourced around and my opinions are as follows. Kindly help to provide your inputs based on your experience. Kitchen Cooker Hood & Hob I have been looking for cooker hood, hob and built-in ovens. The common brand in a number of shops are Turbo, Techno and EF. There was one shop I visited that sold Rinnai also, another shop that sold Ellane as well, and another (Hoe Kee) that sold Aerogaz too. I understand that EF is made in China. The other brands are of mixed manufacturing site. Some models are made in Italy, some in China as well. So hard to tell apart. Based on your experience, kindly share which brand cooker hob, hood and built-in oven is reliable and affordable. (P.S. I have removed Bosch from my list due to cost & Mayer-Artiston had limited selections in their showroom to consider). I am considering Ellane (due to concealed part below the hobs, so that liquid spillage is easier to clean. I am also considering Turbo and Techno due to the price. But I am not sure which to select. One sales guy mentioned to choose those hob with brass material, instead of steel, due to durability. Oven As for oven, I am leaning toward built-in oven (beginner), but one saleslady recommended to get counter version (brand is Rowenta). I have not used a built-in oven before and I intend to use one in the new house. So what will you recommend - built-in or counter top? Kitchen Sink & tap I am looking at double sink with a normal tap. Do you have any recommendations where I can purchase affordable quality? I have tried those shops at Level 3 in IMM but they are expensive! Any recommendations? Bathrooms Again, I have been to IMM to look at bathroom accessories, including WCs, sinks, taps, mirrors with cabinets, rails, holders, etc. The prices are out of my budget for 2 bathrooms. Anyone can suggest a place to shop for reasonably priced bathroom accessories, including WCs & sinks? I am not looking for designer items or fancy items as my bathrooms are rather small. On a side note, I am wondering if you can recommend companies/suppliers who can replace main door/gates/bedroom doors & the windows/grilles. I wrote to a few companies but no replies. Appreciate your help!

  18. Hi Jimmy, can you share your ID's contact? I am looking for reasonably priced ID/contractor for renovation. Thanks.
  19. One of the IDs from 3D Innovations contacted me via WhatsApp. He got my contact when I requested for a quote via a website, where any ID companies can see the requests and contact for quotes. He included some pictures of completed renos before I even replied to his message. But in one of the pictures, there was a watermark of another competitor ID company. When I asked him if both companies are related, he said no and asked why? He commented another customer also asked the same question. When I told him of the watermark, he remarked that the picture was sent by his customer and he sent random pictures for me to view. I am surprised that the random pictures are not 100% theirs. In the end, I didn't meet up with him. Another experience is that, after this incident, I went for my 1st appointment at HDB Hub. After the appointment, I walked past 3D Innovations office opposite HDB Hub. I was browsing through their portfolio outside the shop. There was one guy inside the shop and there was no other customer. He saw me but did not come out at all. So I guess, some ID companies are not hungry.
  20. You can try asking your ID to waive off the charges for installing of toilet accessories. Most IDs can absorb this. You can use the $70 to buy the toilet accessories. Just a suggestion.
  21. $900 is too much for the haulage and clear debris. Usually between $200 to $400+. The highest quote I received from ID for this was $500.
