Typical Singaporean: Ai Pih Ai Chi (Cheap Yet Good)

Recommended Posts

Cube lamp shade: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.5.1TtUlQ&id=15180488262

I think the price have risen since I bought it a month back. Was S$15 then. Now its S$20.

Digital peephole viewer: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.0.0.gq3SU6&id=18770389843

Just unscrew the hdb's peephole and then there will be an empty hole. Afix this digital peephole viewer into the hole and the rest is history. No drilling needed. I fixed this up in 5 minutes.

Hi jasmine thanks for the link. Can you tell me what is the size of the viewer like its length x breath as our doors have wooden frames and if it's too big we cannot fix it flushed. Tia!

Hi Jasmine,

Can share if the doorbell sound from the viewer is it loud enough? still audible from bedrooms?

Yup, I just did a check today. Even from the furthest room, the MBR, its still audible.

Hello, sorry late reply. I measured it today when I was back at the new house, its 15cm length by 9.5cm high. Thats the measurement of the base.

The last few of my Taobao loot also gets installed today:

Common toilet.

This PVC bathroom cabinet only costs S$150 including DOMESTIC shipping:

PVC more lasting than wood because they don't get moldy or mildew as compared to using wood.

1) Closed cabinet door

2) Opened cabinet door

For $150 it comes with a towel hanging bar, side cabinets for storage and a larger bottom cabinet for more storage.

$25 waterfall tap also installed:

Kitchen tap:

The very functional and nice kitchen tap that a gf recommended. Long hose allows pulling the nozzle off the holder to wash further off corners of sinks and table. $67 inclusive international shipping. Saw at Hoe Kee this selling for $200+ for the same tap.

Kitchen backsplash also up:

My US purchase (finally something NOT from Taobao) is finally mounted.

Wall mounting storage canisters (removable) that dispenses dry grains like rice, pasta (eg: fusili, penne, macaroni, etc...), quinoa or coffee beans at the turn of the dial. Comes with measuring cup below so you know how much to dispense.

Space saving Scandinavian design matches the background rustic white brick wall decor.
