  1. Hey I've been looking for such a small sink. Mind sharing where to get it?

    Hi Tiek,

    Sorry for the late reply! Been very busy at work. I got mine from Sim Siang Choon for about $78? I can't quite remember the price. But they do have a (albeit) limited range of sinks designed to fit into corners of bathrooms. Be careful about splashing, though!

    Hi Zio,

    Sent :)

  2. Hey hey! Glad to see your house coming up so nicely, especially the little touches! Hope the laminates issue has been resolved now. Don't worry too much about the edges, over time you will feel the bumps less. From time to time, I still see them on my floor, but I realise that after a while (and especially when there are more important things--like Clearing Up Cat Puke For Five Days Straight) you kind of forget about it!

    Just remember that when you mop the laminates, wring that mop really dry before you start. Cheerios!

  3. Hi

    May I know where you get the study table? Nice! Or custom make?

    May I know your contractor good or not? Cos I thought of getting good one.


    Hi Sunshinedream!

    Oh dear, I haven't been on RT for a long while, thanks to work... I hope this doesn't come too late for you! I got my study table at *drumroll* IKEA! Yes, of all places, it just had to be from there. How's it holding up? Pretty alright, I would say. Not exactly the best material (for obvious reasons), but it's functional, and it looks presentable. Plus, it's nice and long, to hold pinkhubby's nonsense.

    My contractor was excellent. I would say in terms of design, you might want to get another guy, but in terms of responsibility and promptness, and value for money, Edmund is among the best. Do be a little wary of his electrician though, he doesn't do that great a job in terms of straightness of the laying of the trunking, but otherwise they have done a great job for my place. The tiler is good :)

  4. Chandelier & Clock Up

    Got x2 minor scares on the installation of the Chandelier.. but glad everything turned out fine in the end! :sport-smiley-004:





    Nice clock and chandelier!

    ya.. there were too few 'ventilation holes' for the water to escape outwards..

    And yes, the laminated flooring can be replaced.. but will be at the expense of many other good pranks and part of the skirting to be re-installed as well. :(

    Hopefully the slight 'pop-up' condition won't get any worse.

    Weather forecast says the whole wk will be raining! :wacko:

    With regards to laminated flooring, I had this problem before too--we forgot to close the windows and we didn't go over for about 2 days, so the rain water soaked into the laminate and made the edges pop up as well. What we did was to put tissues along the affected joints and draw the water out using capillary action, to get the worst of the damage out. My contractor also gave us an interesting piece of advice, which was to let the laminate dry out first--over 1 month it would mostly sink back down and it would not be all that obvious. We did that and in the end, it wasn't all that bad, so you may want to give it a try.

  5. Yep yep.. SingEu right? I saw his t-blog too

    Yup, csingeu is also on RT! How's the progress on your house? Long time never see you and E around--tomorrow there's a social bachata competition at SeVen, are you going to take part?

    Thanks, Tiler Seng. :)

  6. Woi! Nice to see my fellow salsero on RT! I haven't been here for a while though... there's one more salsero here as well...

    Hey Sharon, Shihan here.

    Just dropping by to say 'hi'!

    Seen the after reno pics.. Nicely done-up!

    Seems we all like white, high gloss furniture. :yamseng:

    And I like your WIW - the curtains add a special feel to it. :thumbs up:

  7. O.O Is it me or, there's no Tele in the house..

    Hi carisella,

    Yes, you're right, there is no TV in the house. I don't enjoy watching TV mostly--I've lived without watching TV since 2007 actually, and to be honest... I don't miss it! :) Maybe it's just me, but local programming is just too blase for my tastes, and I don't fancy the idea of paying >$100 for a bunch of programmes that I don't really have time to watch, so I did away with the TV at home.

    hello yuene!

    what time is the party on 14 may? I think i can only make it after 4pm.

    Hey january, it's from 6.30pm onwards! Details in your PM.

    PS marshmallow! I tried to send you an invite to the house party, but your PMs are full! PM me your email leh!

  8. hey thanks for the welcome...r u also from clementi? yeah it's a nice neighbourhood esp. with the new mall. i've lived here for the past 30 years and finally there is a library in clementi!

    Oooh nice! I live at Avenue 2, have been doing so for over 4 years now. We initially chose the place because it was somewhat near my parents, and also for the accessibility :) Looks like there's a lot of Clementi-ans here on RT~

  9. it's okie, your house got ceiling fan! (same one as mine! :P)

    yup will help -eat- the meatballs~ :lol:

    Haha great! I will also make my hawaiian pork chops =)

    hey hey.. the party is on! haha

    my first since i joined RT for awhile.

    can my wife join in too?

    do i need to cook too?

    i quite like to do my "pai guo" barley drink when the majong kakis come over for late sessions.

    Yes, Trinity can come too ;) No need to cook, but if you want to bring something along, do feel free to!

    Okay then 14th May it is, (so long away).

    what do people like to eat?

    I eat anything ^^

  10. It's a small world!!! Especially in Singapore :P

    Anyway, yeah, 2nd Saturday of May would be best then, since I don't work on that day, and also the first Friday is pinkhubby's birthday! So let's settle it then, dinner on 14 May at the Haus!







    -lachesis and titanax (able to make it? lemme know!)

    My house no aircon, so sorry ah, everyone must tahan the heat a little...

  11. yuene your place looks awesome. So many gorgeous things in one apartment, you must have spent a lot of time and effort making it nice. I love the clock... would love to get something similar if you can point me to the right direction :)

    Anyway, I'm gonna be thick skinned and invite myself to your upcoming housewarming.

    I can help make food if you want. Just let me know.

    Hey january,

    Thanks for the compliments! But my house isn't that gorgeous la... pretty much basic (because lim bu is too lazy to upkeep...shhhhh) The clock was purchased from a shop on the 2nd floor of The Cathay, called 'Totally Hot Stuff'.

    And sure, you're welcome to my place! It'll be a Saturday in late April, just fyi.

    froggy, no worries about being thick skinned.... just bring your nice baked stuff over wahahahahahaha :sport-smiley-004:

  16. Day 47


    Tiled kitchen bases : (top left) fridge and sink base; (top right) washing machine base for the service yard; (bottom) tiles demarcate where the kitchen ends and the living areas begin.

    Is that a kitchen island that I spy?? :dribble:
