Picture of my daybed frm barang barang shifted into WIW rm. Realli comfy n nice to sleep on daybed while wind comes in frm the window.

Still need 1) a white standing lamp for reading 2) curtains to complete the soft look 3) probably a carpet

Sep17015.jpgSep17012.jpg

Took halfday tdy to meet the plumber n my contractor. Lucky took halfday as BrownMse was tied up n many things got damaged!:rolleyes::D

1) My plumber told me the cistern (water tank) for the common toilet spoil. Gotta change as it's dangerous. It wasnt damaged initially. During the long wait since it was delivered until it was installed, it prolly got damaged by 1 of my contractor's workers.....sigh :D

Anyways, brght it back to SSC with receipt n guess wat they say? They say ceramic not covered under warranty!:notti: !!

So LL buy the cistern, smemre dare to tell auntie me dat they canot deliver to my hse, I will need to collect myself!:notti: (this was after I took the heavy cistern bac to SSC @ IMM to exchange dis evening!!)

***Will never recommend anybody to SSC:o :D:P

2) My common toilet tap oso spoil. Manufacturing defect (basically veli rare case n it happened to me). I watch my plumber install. Den turn on, water flow out. Unfortunately, turn off, water still flow out.... :(

So, dis evening, took back to HoeKee frm IMM to exchange. Even though I didnt bring receipt, they jus exchange for me n smemre tell me, if kena 2nd time spoil, dont need to bring back. Just call them n they will send their plumber dwn.. :)

In comparison, I will definitely buy frm HoeKee n recommend my frens to go there in future. :P

3) Kitchen sink tap canot install due to mismatch. Now they gotta take abit off my solid top in order to squeeze the tap in.... :(

4) My ikea mirror (for common toilet) got chipped off a big corner. Highly suspect the kitchen-workers broke it when they moved my stove n hood. I oni realised it the minute my contract left my hse. But lucky, ikea change it for us, nt much questions asked. I didnt even bring receipt.

Good scvc too frm ikea!~ :P

OOOOHHHH, i like your daybed~ it's like a mini R & R cum reading corner in the WIW. looks so comfy. :) the WIW matches the floor laminates too

SSC's been providing me good service leh. I had a change of mind of one of their tap cause had my eyes on my present waterfall tap and they just let me return it and give me a credit voucher. the outlet supervisor, Rahim is a nice guy too, cause he give me discount. =X

Hi Angel,

Thanks, the WIW is my room, hehehe :D (studyroom belongs to my hubby).

Hm...I thk I noe which Rahim u toked to cuz there's like oni 1 supervisor there. Unfortunately, he was oso the 1 whom we talked to. We went to their changi branches b4 too and unfortunately, most of their staff scvc attitude quite bad I find.... :bleah:

Eventually, after my hubby BrownMse toked to him for veli long, den he agree to ask his delivery to send it to us foc. We still paid for the cistern n my contractor is gona cover the cost. ;)

Hi Weiling, u asking me abt the waterpipes isit?

Cuz our 2 toilets r back to back so the water pipes are directly taken frm the common toilet behind. Hence, showerhead doesnt haf a lota pipes in the kitchen. But common toilet alota pipes lah....canot be helped, haf to sacrifice 1.... :D

Can post some picture of the common toilet to show the piping that you mentioned? My unit is also in the area, JW 62#. Was thinking how to do the same like your MBR toilet.

One other question. Did you tile up your service balcony?

Harlow piggie,

JW-WIS still alota flats for selection, actualli the 5rm mre "hot" than the EA. when my hubby went to hdb to take queue no, the auntie at the counter shake her head n tell him 5rm he got no hope cuz we were quite far behind....so we decided to take EA lor. Px-wise actually JW flats 5rm n ea not much difference.

My hubby Brownmse works in Tuas (in fact, dat boi can take bus to work outside the Macdonald)... :P

I did hear frens say JW air no gd, veli industrial. But i like the cocoa smell in the air, u got smell it? hehee :P

Its oso got sme aeroplanes flying around, so u get dat aeroplane sound. But den again, Im nt gonna be hme during daytime....night-time think not so much bah....

I intend to ask BrownMse to drive me to JP le, hehehe :notti: Our area ia abt 3 bus-stops frm JP, ok lah, quite convenienet, walkable but wld prolly take u 15-20mins if u got short legs like me.... :P
