Hello, this is a log of my trips to JB in my hunt for sinks, fans and lights. Hope this guide can help you, whoever you are. Here is a sample map of one of my day trips. Visited: 11 NOV 2017 visit Tampoi Lighting Centre I found their range of lights quite huge, but nothing really impressive (it looks like u can get their items from taobao). They carry ceiling fans as well. Lady boss behind the counter is a bit weird though - doesn't like me asking prices for fans. Lots of people. They sell spare bulbs too. You can find philips downlights here. Starworld Opposite end of the same building from Tampoi. Smaller range than TLC, carries fans as well. Range of taps not impressive. Salesman tells me its due to lack of display space but told me that I can still order from catalogue. Also carries philips downlights. I think all lights shop have them. Pro field home and living (Across the road from TLC) I didn't get anything from them because their fittings are cheap-looking. Cheap plating and if you've bought a taobao tap before, you know exactly what I mean. And taobao taps get rusty very fast. Don't get from pro field, don't get from taobao either, unless you want to drink rust or wash your clothes in rust. They have some sinks, and the stainless steel ones look really industrial (not aesthetically pleasing) to me. 19 NOV 2017 visit HT lighting (permas jaya) Very friendly assistants. Pricing is standardised and good but I did not require lighting stuff so I didn't get anything. (I based the fair pricing on their bulb and fan prices) Aldeco Living It was a 2 storied shophouse, finding parking is difficult - but protip, make a left turn to go BEHIND the shophouses. Plenty of parking there. Selection there was typical, mainly bathroom/kitching fittings. Stainless steel racks, holders etc. Selection of stainless steel kitchen sinks upstairs. Very limited basins on display. Shop requires some sort of membership and all price tags have a member/non-member pricing. Fancy Lighting (CLOSED) 1 Lighting (beside ex-fancy lighting shop) Very antiquated designs, friendly shop owner. Did not buy anything. I however asked him where to get fans. He directed me to a shop across the road. It is a Chinese shop (XXX Eastern XXX). XXX Eastern XXX (electronics store across the bridge from 1 Lighting) Do not buy any electronics from that shop. I asked for the pricing for a few known fans and was quoted at least RM150 above the retail price. Shop owner was quick to point out that it is still cheaper than getting it in SG and was also quick to offer at RM100 discount. Interestingly, when I asked the owner where to get lights, I was directed back to 1 Lighting. Of course I pretended to not know better and left the place politely. KAC kitchen There was no prominent signboard - I had to confirm the shop by unit number. It is a showroom-shop, carrying lots of modern hobs and german/italian stainless steel kitchen sink. Friendly and genuine shop assistant. Jubin BMS Initially I thought I was lost and stumbled on a non-consumer industrial estate. I saw no entrances, no showrooms at Jubin (from the outside). I went to a nearby showroom and was fortunately redirected back to Jubin BMS for my needs. A dream haven for sinks, fittings, toilet bowls, bathtube, even floor tiles! Pricing is extremely good. Branded sinks can be had for slightly over 300RM. Unbranded toilet bowls begin at around the same price. Of course, if you're looking for high end they have it too. I saw sinks/toilets onwards of RM3000. They have electronic seat covers/bidet etc. Every sink, every toilet bowl had its own showcase. Let the pictures speak for themselves. Needless to say I got my items from here. As seen from the outside, you'd never imagine there's a giant consumer showroom inside. 24 NOV 2017 visit Yes Electrical Bought my fans from the shop. Having been to all the places above, I dare say that they are the best priced. They carry lights too. I bought some Philips tubes/lamps, and pricing is good. Feel free to facebook message them and ask them for a quote - that's what I did. Another plus point is that they are so near to the customs (Pelangi area). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Not visited (please feel free to add in your reviews): Top Lamp Big Bath

I have been a follower of this forum for a long time and basically this is a good forum for new homeowners wanting to buy furniture. I have some thoughts I would like to share with everyone: 1. Buy from established retailers. There have been many many consumers burnt by dodgy shops in the last couple of years. Many of them have paid deposits or even made full payments at shops and these shops have closed down without delivering product. On this forum alone these shops include: Executive Living, The Montella, Species and Sense Art. A good way to tell if the retailer has been around a good long time is by looking at their GST Registration number or their Company Registration number on the sales orders. The first 4 digits show the year the company was registered. It is tempting to buy from such companies because they will make a lot of promises on warranties and give big discounts. But if they close down, who is going to honour their warranties. For example, Executive Living came out promising 5 year warranties on their sofas. What difference does it make if they offer 10 year warranties. They have closed down. 2. You will get what you pay for. There is no such thing as a super deal in the real world, if something is really really cheap you should really really not buy it because good furniture costs money to make. So if something is really cheap either the quality is compromised or the seller does not plan to deliver. So what is really really cheap: 1. Fabric sofas below $800 2. 3 Seater leather sofas below $1200 3. L-Shape leather sofas below $1500 4. Spring mattresses below $500 5. Pocket spring mattresses below $800 If you find the above items below those prices and they are not on clearance, think really hard. As consumers, you work hard for your money, spend wisely.
I'm intending to purchase Brandt 8kg washing machine and dryer and for my cooking, i want to buy Hob, hood & oven. I hunted electrical departmental stall & neighborhood dealers for price comparison. I ended up settling for the shop Blk 159 Ang Mo Kio Ave 4 , EJ Electrical. They offered the best prices which was more attractive compared to other neighbor hood stalls and departmental stalls.
