Hello everyone! Been a long time since I log in to this forum. We had settled down very comfortably in our home and still loving every corner of our home! 

I received some PMs to check how are the items holding up for our home especially Taobao stuffs. Just thought I should post some move in updates on the stuffs that we had bought for our home.

Most of the stuffs that we bought from taobao are still holding up really well!

- TV console, Dining table and chairs definitely still is real good condition. 

- Stainless steel stuff from Taobao, the bidet spray had some tiny spot of rust forming. The common toilet basin set that I bought, the tap that came with it had some rust spots and looks really dull which I just can't stand it anymore and bought a Grohe tap locally to replace it. The water trap also has rust spots forming. 

Rainshower, MBR basin set and Kitchen tap are all good! So I guess it's more of a hit and miss thing for Taobao's stainless steel stuffs. 

- All the lightings are still working very well for us as well as the bulbs that we had got from taobao they are still working! 

- We finally changed our default HDB toilet bowls. I think it is one of the best choice ever! The default HDB toilet bowls are so small hence comfort level isn't really good and the flushing power is really so weak that we have to flush 2 or 3 times to get rid of the stuffs which is really irritating. 

Bought 2 Baron 888 WC from Heritage and got their recommended plumber to change it for us. The plumber charges is definitely much lower than J&E's plumber and they had used cement to seal up the toilet bowl instead of silicone which was used by J&E's plumber previously. Cement seal up is more resistant to dirt and mould hence it is easier to maintain! 

Had read before some people feedback that the WC's flushing power is not very strong but no issues for us! It's working pretty well. Sometime back, I called up Heritage to feedback that the toilet seems to have a little bit of leakage and rust coming out from the toilet seat steel fittings and they said that they will get Baron to come down to check, the service is very prompt! They came down the next day to check. After inspecting the staff said that it is not leakage but is normal as their WC will trap some leftover water after flushing hence it may flow down and they also changed the rusty toilet seat steel fitting without any charge. I found out that it is turning rusty because the husband had been using bleach to clean the toilet bowls :rofl:

As for J&E, they are still very responsive after the handover! Our sliding shoe cabinet has some issues as it can't slide out smoothly and they had came down to replace it after we had feedback to them. :good:

Some post move in picture updates :)

Put up a picture wall for the dining area which was previous empty :)

We got a armchair for our living room and all our guests love this armchair! It's so comfortable!

Realized that I did not really post up pictures of the MBR, here it goes! 

Most of our guests are very interested in our Vento Fino 2 fan everyone thinks that it looks really cute it does not just look good they are also impressed on how strong the wind is! :good:
