Happy Updates

Opened door + sister in law gave birth today! Double happiness!

It was a pretty siong day for us. Busy for the entire day and talked until our saliva dry (peeps, remember bring water bottle along when open door next time, especially if you are meeting FSM to discuss house FS and ID to discuss defects!)

Just a brief summary of what we did.

0930 - Reach HDB hub apply fire insurance (topped up for additional 5 yrs contents insurance)

0945 - Took queue for signing of lease + collect keys

0955 - Entered to collect keys (signed the most number of signatures at one go in my entire life lol)

1040 - Sign up for SP services

1045 - Left HDB hub for lunch

1115 - Chiong to new house open door

1130 - Start the auspicious door opening ceremony as advised by FSM

1200 - ID arrived to check defects

1215 - FSM arrived to do FS audit

1330 - Went through house FS audit + Bazi analysis

1600 - Continue check and mark out defects

1700 - Report defects

1730 - Leave our dream home

1800 - Visit our niece!

Long day today indeed. Update more on the specifics tomorrow!

Getting really excited! 3 more days to go!

Meanwhile, have been doing some planning about what I need to buy and where I will be buying..

Thinking of buying my bathroom + kitchen accessories from Royal Fanco. Read many good feedback / review online. Willing also be calling sforshor's LED contact for my down lights + checking out an AMK neighbourhood store highly raved by my neighbours.

Bathroom Accessories

2x towel holder

2x toilet paper holder

2x bidget

Sink (not sure 1 or 2, see what HDB provides first)

WC (not sure 1 or 2, see what HDB provides first)

Not getting for bathroom

Mirrors and vanity cabinet (Included in my reno work)

Using solid surface as corner racks in both toilets as shared by Harriette (Must check with ID)

Not changing the showers

Kitchen Accessories

1x undermount sink

1x mixer

Already purchased

Hood - EF CH9202

Hob - Brandt TG1273B

Oven - Bosch HBN331E2J

Fridge - Samsung RT35FDACDSL

Lightings

13x downlight for living room, dining area + passageway

3x LED lights for bedrooms

2x LED lights for toilets

1x LED light for kitchen

1x LED light for service yard

1x LED lights for bomb shelter

Miscellaneous

1x ceiling fan (aiming for fanco aroma)

1x safe (need recommendation!)

1x wine chiller (need recommendation!)

Decided not to get dining lights in the end as I am contemplating getting the "spaceman" table introduced by Ning Ning. If that's the case, my dining table will be moved around when I invite people over. The dining light will look very out of place once the table is shifted around.

Have I missed out anything that is essential for reno for kitchen, toilets, ceiling fan and lights? Or any other recommendations to buy the items?

Things are falling into place really nicely.

Will be having my key collection + auspicious door opening ceremony + house feng shui audit + bazi reading + meeting with ID to do measurements all on the same day.

*super happy!*

Thanks Mrs Lee! Hubby & I are doing our masters in Aussie.. Not so bad. Cannot imagine if we are studying in the states or UK. Then we will really faint :lol:

Happy Updates!

Key collection date is confirmed on 15 April! Just one more week to go!

The arranging and re-arranging of schedule is starting to take its toll on me mentally due to all the uncertainties involved.... i.e., flight back is dependent on key collection date, checking of defects is dependent on auspicious house opening date & all these are dependent on whether school has presentations, quizzes etc.

But luckily managed to find a window one week period where I can have minimal impact on school schedule and fly back SG to collect keys + settle house feng shui audit + buy my bathroom accessories + lights + any other reno required items before flying back to studies.

If this window period passed by with no news from HDB, it will mean key collection in July liao. so... *heng ah!*

I guess no taobao for me unless it's non reno-related items.. timing doesn't work out so its most likely only insect screen + other deco stuff from TB.

Also... against all the experienced renotalkers suggestion, hubby and I will not be able to be on-site to supervise the reno. Can only rely mostly on whatsapp + Skype for updates from my ID. Crossing my fingers & toes that nothing major will occur that requires us to rush back to salvage.

A consolation though, my mom will be helping to supervise the reno. She is super particular for her own house when it comes to reno. I hope she is equally particular for my reno as well. Oh man.. what will I do without my mum! Haha. Ok over dramatic.

But YAY!!! it's finally my turn to share the actual reno journey!!!

congrats on the key collection news! so exciting!
