  1. Hi all, its been long overdue, my house has been completed since September thanks to the speed and precision rate at which my ID worked, but i've been crazily busy with the move in and the settling down of my family, and also with playing with my "new toys", which i will upload later on. I'm doing this as a token of appreciation for my ID Kenneth, who owns his own company Abstract Design Pte Ltd, who was recommended by a friend who had his place done up by him also. As this is our first house, my wife and i had absolutely no idea what or how to begin with, and the internet is so jam packed with information that all the designs we seem to bookmark are almost something from every theme. We then decided to leave this in the hands of a professional and we contacted Kenneth who was recommended by a friend of mine who had his place done up by Kenneth 2 years back. During the first meeting, we had an information overflow for him, bombarding him with countless things we had plans for and showed him all the pictures we had saved in the bookmarks of our iPad, Initially we had doubts for the first part of the meeting, he doesn't write anything down, throughout the initial part of the conversation it was all my wife and me talking, and he just sat there quietly listening. When we were done with our bombardment, thats when we were surprised. He repeated from living through kitchen everything we said, without missing a beat, and checked back on whether was that the requirements we wanted, and summarized my theme requirement to simple scandinavian and showed us prior projects of what he thought we liked. And truly it was exactly what my wife and i were confused about, and we were immediately assured that the decision to engage a professional was a right one. My key collection was scheduled for June end, and we met him in the early parts of June, so we had a month to prepare, so after that first appointment, i had scheduled to meet another two ID's as we thought it was only right we get a few more opinions before we made our decision. Feeling a little more confident of the style we were looking for, we decided to allow the 3 ID's we met a week's time before we arranged to meet them to see their proposals. Kenneth came back with a text to inform us he had a proposal in mind, and would like to meet us, only two days after we met, and again i was impressed by his rate of work, we did mention to him that we were not really in a rush as we were only planning on moving in to our new place in September, but his logic to us was that he believed that after the first appointment, with the information still fresh in our mind, we would not forget what we had wanted in the first appointment. Which is true to a certain extent, so i arranged to meet up with him that weekend, excited to see what proposal he had in mind for us. Our second appointment was the weekend, four days after we first met him. I would learn later on that the works and proposals he did for me was far more than what the other two ID's had prepared. 2 dimensional floorplan space planning, quote, and what he did extra was he actually did a sketch up on his idea for the kitchen which was what we were going to spend more on. Although the google sketchup figure he did was just a simple sketch, the other two ID's which we would meet later on didn't provide this additional service. We were impressed by his professionalism and knowledge on the buildup which he selflessly shared with us even though we hadn't confirmed with him, even to the extent of sending us the photo image of the sketch which the other two ID's had informed us that the design would require an upfront design fee before they would share it with us. After the meeting with the other two ID's , who were also professional in their proposals to us, what made our decision easier was the impression of the rate of which Kenneth returned to us with his proposal and his second meeting presentation to us. We decided to go ahead with Kenneth. I'll be uploading the pictures of the progress of work and why even though my house has been completed, i want to make sure i do this to show my gratitude to what Kenneth has helped us with in our renovation.
