Master Bedroom - Piping is run to bottom of MBR wall, so that it wouldn't pop out from top of wall. Paid extra for more trunking that goes around the toilet

Metal bracket, the aircon guy, Meng says that HDB says can only use this. So have to paint over, no choice. =|

Just received a call from Roy, to check if we are changing the bedroom 4cm copper pipe to 6cm stainless steel pipe.

Called Dad, dad says to still keep it as copper is the best.

But ID says it is ok, but warn about the water pressure issue.

4cm and 6cm, really affect a lot?

Sigh.

A lot uses stainless steel piping, which my dad who is no longer in plumbing line knows it will rust.

Maybe should have asked my dad to do the plumbing work so I dont have such headache cos dad will buy the materials to do...

But then again, dad is really old to be doing all these... 68 yo alreayd..

and ID just called to say the sibei chio laminate i want is out of stock!!!

**** sad la. kaoz.

pictures fresh from oven yesterday night.

I'm so happy that a lot of things are done up!

Practically just left with carpentry work now.

Up till now, things are ok. (Phew, Thankfully).

Next is to insist on my laminates.

MBR TOILET TILES

Feature is at where toilet bowl will be instead at shower area. Id suggested this so that it will be different from common toilet.

missed out on the feature wall in mbr toilet =)

Heard that some feedbacked that Heritage stainless steel items rusts easily. I've bought all of my items from there, so I will feedback if any issues.

Then again, you pay for what you get too.. More or less, expected that it will not be as good as Song Cho for sure. However, due to budget constraint, will get cheaper ones first. =)

Basically, I still have to get these items

1) shoe cabinet (anyone knows where can I get mirrored shoe cabinet?)

2) carpet

3) study table

4) Bean bags from cellini

5) toilet fittings

6) hob

7) song cho items (out of budget)

8) Coffeetable - KIV

9) TV

10) Dining table & chairs

11) Bedframe

12) Aircon

13) clothes hangers

14) Cutlery

15) Chopping board

16) A wok/ pot to at least cook maggi (hahaha)

17) a small sette

18) cushions?

19) door knobs and main door handle

Added on more items instead of reducing. hahaha.

Seems to need more items. But can't remember any now. Probably

Will try to check taobao to see if I can get anything from there too

To do list

1) Settle laminates (because OOS according to ID), am gonna try insist

2) Buy aircon

3) pay for fridge/ washing machine tomorrow, delivery likely on Sat

4) Decide on laminates for altar

5) Arrange for grills to be up once painting is done

6) arrange for Teng Yong curtain to come down and get the curtains measurements

Can't describe my happiness to see things going up well.

Heck the low floor or whatever probs earlier!!! I have my home!

Noticed one big lobang which I not exactly happy abt tho..

Tiles badly cracked, so the big hole is plastered over. looks awful and a little upset.

NOt sure if to adopt the 80-20 concept on this or not.

aj8k.jpg

On the other hand, there wasn't any hiccups too, so I really give credit to this. (I hope it's not that it hasn't happened).

So basically, what bothered me apart from the pics above, will be no more of laminates chosen (but i called Arova and was informed left few pieces - decided to give benefit of doubt and think that because there wasn't enough laminates to do)

Other than that, all fine. I'm very thankful that during tiling stage no issues already.

one last picture to show, the kitchen view of living area.

The drop down is to accommodate sliding glass
