went to the gain city expo sale today.

bought a samsung fridge tat was previously selling at 1199, today only 889 (bought the white one):

Piece of advice about your fridge...as the doors open both ways, you need sufficient allowance (at least 60 degrees) for it to fully open on both left and right sides, that means, you cannot place your fridge next to a wall.

I know a fren who bought the exact same fridge as you and placed it right at the end of the kitchen next to the wall...in the end, one side of the fridge door couldn't open fully...a bit of a waste if you ask me...

YAaaaa Usually microwave silver, grey or plain white... but you get one that match your kitchen le... YAYY

hehe. yeah lo. tat was a good one :dancingqueen:

dont u find the fridge a bit too big? are u and your husband staying only? not afraid of waste electricity?

de fridge looks big, but i find tat it's ok leh. 510l only. moreover this one have got 3ticks. so i guess de wastage wun be much. moreover i think it's better to get a big fridge, with less stuffs inside, den small fridge with alot of stuffs inside. i heard this is more energy efficient? :dunno:

i think their fridge can be opened almost fully, if they are using this layout.

yeah. i will be using the layout tat nath.adrie have updated. anyway i wun be placing the fridge so near to the wall, so tat heat can flow n disperse off from de back n side of the machine. so i think it shuld be able to open. i dun really need the 60deg opening la. cos in my current home, my parents fridge oso in de same position which i would be placing my current fridge :notti:

mmm ya standalone have ALL the space to open!!! WHoohoo! Shiok with such a big fridge.

haha. ya. anytime find the door can't move, juz move the fridge, left right up down abit, den can open :notti:

haha... the gain city expo sales seems good... but my hubby refused to go wor...

The fridge looks really good.... haha....

hehe. luckily my hubby heeded my advise n brought me there. his ex colleague told him some other good deals tat he got, n he ask me wan go again or not wor :( i was like... nooooo!! :unsure:

anyway realise i missed another deal. de samsung washing machine usual price 699, now going for 549. i tot i can get it at 500 at hongliang. realise hongliang selling at 600 :bangwall: somemore i told de agent i can get better price. den he tell me say he see if got display set n c if i want 8|

luckily my ID covered the cost for me... so cannot make it pay for so much extra tiles la.

Nice design n especially the black tiles at the toilet n kitchen....

thanx. very happy. finally starting to see the progress of reno taking shape :dancingqueen:
