  1. my place is currently undergoing reno, and my ID had also suggested to leave the kitchen wall as it is - means no wall tiles. his reasoning is that having floor-to-ceiling wall tiles is "old-fashioned" and that leaving it alone gives it a more clean and modern look. of course, he suggested to have tempered glass on the wall at the cooking area. i thought about it, and agreed. also partly is i will not be a heavy cooker. for those who are very much into cooking, having wall tiles may be a more appropriate option

    Roller Blind

    how are the blinds at IKEA? they're a lot cheaper and looks ok too. anyone can advise?
  3. I read about GPLAN in the forum, so I visited their website sometime back and put in a request via their online form to contact me. I never heard from them Not sure if they even got my email, or could it be that my budget is too tiny to interest them. Or maybe their business is just too good.
  4. hmm... C did suggest quite a few ideas when i was down there. maybe the fact that i already know what i want made things easier bah. still pondering over the few quotes i got. sigh... headache
  5. thanks babytan. i hvnt decided on them yet, still comparing the few quotes on hand. their quotation is actually the lowest with the most freebies. i'm also a bit wary of the "too-good-to-be-true" thingy, but i'll see how it goes. how about yrself? who did u award your business to?
  6. anyone spoken to Terrence b4? he served me when i went down the other time. he is ok, and eager in my business
  7. have spoken to *** design. must say their quotation is v competitive, with quite a bit of freebies thrown in. the girl also offered a nice discount. while i somewhat agree that the "C" guy is a little hard-sell, he does seems sincere and eager. yes, they also asked for a token deposit, quoting that it will "lock" the price in the event of any price hikes for raw materials. he suggested several ideas, and is v keen in my business am giving them a serious thought...
  8. hi momoboy, appreciate if you can PM me your contractor's details. am sourcing 1 for my unit. thanks!
  9. hi sino_74, near SAFRA... sounds like 200 series to me. is it 4-rm? just fyi, i let go of that unit that asked for $35 COV. found myself another 3-rm unit in a nearby block, top-floor, 5-min walk to MRT, near chong pang market. Valuation at $205K and COV is $30K. still a bit pricey but because i like it, so i went for it. hope i wont regret my choice
  10. in my opinion, $50K COV is really way too much. i dunno how "hot" is the bt merah area, but i wld never pay that for a 3-rm flat. what's more, its 25+ yrs, basic reno, road-facing, and no lift upgrading yet done. it sounds like a rip-off. do advise your family agst it. which floor is it on? i dont reckon its near to redhill mrt? i recently bought at COV $30K a 3-rm at yishun. 5-min walk from mrt station, top-most floor, basic reno, not road-facing, no lift upgrading. i still think $30K COV is pretty high, but i like the unit so bo bianz.
  11. gosh, i just bought a top floor unit. from what i heard, top units shouldnt be any hotter than other units due to the hdb roof insulation. also, the 2 times i viewed the unit, i didnt feel it was hotter than usual. felt windy though keeping my fingers crossed...
  12. Such a low COV for places like AMK? Wow. Yup agree that $35 COV is a bit DUH. But I'm a bit particular about the location and quite detemined that my new place be within walking distance to the MRT. My top choice is a corner unit but I'm willing to consider a corridor unit. Anyway the one that I liked is now no-go because the owner is asking to "under-value" the selling price so she can pocket more cash. That's not quite legal I think. I dont want any trouble, so it's a strict no-no for me.
  13. I'm set on Yishun coz my folks stay in Yishun and I wish to be near them that's y... The unit was renovated before and is actually in move-in condition. It is on lift level, and quite windy. The agent is actually a friend of mine, and so far he has been diligent and respectful of my views without trying to influence me into anything. But $35K is like you all said, on the high side for a 3-rm unit. Viewed another unit in the same block yesterday and owner asking $30K COV. Condition is bad but ok since I'll redo everything anyway. But thing is I like the $35K COV unit better haha! But me no hurry to get, so i prob will wait and see. Do you all think $30K COV is reasonable?
  14. i like it. have always liked paintings of the Buddha. gives me a feeling of peace and serenity. but RM780 a bit steep leh. slash the price by half see what he say, haha!
