4) cut-paste the URL link

Thanks! Am so happy to have gotten my keys too :)

I'm using 8 12W LED daylight downlights but no cove lighting.

Hmm, I think the brightness really depends on individual preferences. One of our neighbours got 16W LED downlights.

I think for mine 12W is enough as the space is used for watching TV. If we really need to read and it is not bright enough, I will buy a standing lamp by the sofa..

Hi guojiawen,

So where did you buy your downlights from eventually?

Renovation Day 12 - 30 April

Just tried both dropbox and flickr but I just can't get them to work. Argh. Back to good old photo bucket (with another username).

Flushing of living room wall, living room L box, all curtain pelmets and air con trunking box up are done!

Purchases (Lights)

My house lightings are really simple. No dining lights or chandeliers etc.

Was supposed to head down to Shor's recommendation for the lights, but as the timing was delayed on the suppliers end, we ended up going to XXX to take a look first. It's a wholesale factory at Kaki Bukit recommended by my mum's friend. I can only say, the sales power of the owner is really strong. Once we entered, we couldn't escape (probably we weren't firm enough). Hence ended up buying from them..

Luckily we bought the rest of the stuff from Song Cho and Royal Fanco already. Or else I'm sure we will end up buying everything with them. Will provide follow up review on their lightings when everything is installed. Have not found much reviews on them online. Saw a few negative ones though (mostly too pushy in sales, and lights kept spoiling - crossing fingers).

Managed to bargain for 1 year warranty and for the PLC energy saving lights to be upgraded to LED lights at a lower cost. But pricing definitely cannot be compared to Taobao for sure.

Hey shor!

The LED chips and brand are from Taiwan and the boss assured that they are of great quality. Guess only time will tell...

Pity I couldn't get mine from Greg :wacko: But pricing wasn't too big of a diff :)
