Hi pandababy love the master toilet tiles. Maybo ask where did bought and how much?

Hi jaiyerika, the master toilet tiles were from Taugres at Defu lane.  The wall tiles were $2.80, the feature wall and floor tiles were around $3 I think.  It's quite a small shop though, not a lot of selection so unless you really want that particular tile, I would suggest going to some of the larger shops mentioned in the forum.

Choosing of Paint Colours

 

Chose the colour of my walls over the weekend.  As usual, I changed my mind several times before I felt comfortable with my decision. Kudos to my ever patient ID!  :good:

The main colour theme is light grey, white and pastel colours.  However, there were a lot of different shades within those colours, and I spent a couple of hours on the Nippon Paint website + internet looking for recommendations.

 

1. Living room and dining

Read on more than one blog that Sail White (1199) is a lovely creamy white that's perfect for Scandinavian style, so I chose that for the living and dining area.

2. Master Bedroom

ID recommended Enchanted State for the feature wall, and Gray Drops for the other three walls.  The colours are so serene, I feel sleepy looking at them already!  zz

3. Common Rooms

Initially the ID recommended Smoky, but I thought the colour looked a bit "cold" and did not feel cosy enough.  Ended up choosing Special Touch after seeing the picture below:

It is a very light grey that is bordering on lilac. Looks so soothing right?

 

4.  Study Room

Since the other rooms are either grey or white already, I gave hubby a choice of blue or green for his study room.  He chose Blue Wish:

Renovation is progressing very quickly, with updates from the ID every day.  Hacking has finished, and over the weekend they have started plastering the walls and tiling the kitchen/bathrooms.

As we are working on a tight budget, our ID suggested that we plaster over the existing Kitchen wall tiles instead of replacing them in order to save costs. The wall will then be painted over with Epoxy paint. 

Looking forward to the finished work!

Yeah, I don't understand the need for the kitchen walls to be tiled so this is a good solution.  The existing tiles on the other side will be covered by the new cabinets + backsplash so we save on hacking costs too.  The colours are Nippon!

how come fujioh hood a pain to clean? tot it is very rave here ...

Hi d3n, I was reading this blog review:  http://renovation-greencoal.blogspot.sg/2011/03/review-fujioh-hood-fx-900.html

The blog owner actually gave it a very good review but I surmised that it would be a pain to clean from the description. Aside from once a month cleaning of the filter panel and oil collector, once a quarter it is recommended to take the whole thing apart and clean the inner mechanisms thoroughly. 

No doubt it has superior suction that's suitable for Asian style cooking but for  lazy + light cooker like me, I would prefer a hood that does the job adequately and requires the bare minimum amount of cleaning. :P  I was told by the salesperson at  Hoe Kee that the Tecno hood I bought only requires washing of the filter panel once a month.  The filter panels are easily removable, and comes in three small pieces that can fit in my sink easily.
