I know.. :bangwall:
KitchenAid is because I like to bake desserts/cakes, therefore it is a useful tool for me. I currently using those cheapo hand mixer and I don't like my philip stand mixer.

How's the review/feedback of the Metra 9 Basin?

Hoe Kee selling it as a Package (with matching Mida Sink Tap) @ $589
They got two version of the sink taps - coloured or chrome, we chose the colour one to match the basin.

We recently went to I-Decor Lightings @ JB to shop for lightings and Fan, we didn't visit the famous and fame Tampoi lighting because their prices are 2-3x more! (wedid went down to survey and exited the store in less than 5mins. Asked a few items and we know everything is being marked up. we just got turned-off.)

Eg: For the same ceiling fan that we bought, Tampoi is selling @ >500RM whereas i bought it at only 280rm. -.-

We bought a couple of items:

- Track for Track Light (didnt manage to get any track light bulbs as the design i wanted were out of stock)
- 5050 LED Strips
- Rubine Vetta Ceiling Fan (for our bedroom)
- Toilet Lights

Spend over 1200RM in total as we bought alot of LED strips (wardrobe x 2, living room display, kitchen cabinet, toilet mirror, etc) and drivers as well.

For those who are keen to get your lights or fans from JB, I highly recommend I-Decor @ Mt Austin area, address below:

Open 11AM - 9PM Daily (Closed on Wed) 
Address: Taman Mount Austin, 27,29,31, Jalan Mutiara Emas 10/19, 81100, Johor Bahru, Johor, 81100, Malaysia

Updates to defect checks:

went down last Saturday to review the defects, sad to say they created new scratches on my main door. :bangwall:

Door1.JPG.41948d4c169b01831bcb8bba0cb56aa0.JPG


However, for most of the remaining they are fixed. Can't be that particular anymore so let it passed for alot of things.
Manage to get them to polish my laundry pole at service yard as it was filled with rust and spot stains. (didnt took a photo)
They took the 3M scortchbrite, spray it with WD40 and polish it. Maybe i can DIY it myself next time round.

Anyway, the poor contractor-painter (i call him painter) had to touch up the door and "draw" the grains of the door.
He spent over 1hr to touch up. :paint:
No matter how good artist he is, the scratches are still visible at an angle and you can feel it when you touch it.

(might not be obvious here, because the image are scaled down and not as "high res" as what's on my phone...)
Went down back to BSC and told them that they scratch the door and painting doesn't help. I want them to change the door. As my hacking of kitchen gonna commence on Wed, they need to rectify my door latest Tuesday. :fire:

Started hacking of the kitchen floor and service yard yesterday, it was all done within couple of hours.
We engaged a separate ID/Contractor (Javen) to do up all these, super good follow up and progress is quick.

Tiles and Cement came in yesteday as well. The contracts will be doing up the waterproofing membrane and cement screed for kitchen today and tomorrow. Tiles laying will be on Monday. can't wait for a new and wider kitchen. :wub:

We ordered these tiles for the kitchen to match the living vinyl from Evorich. We didn't wanted the vinyl flooring in the kitchen because it gets difficult to clean, therefore tiles are much more recommended for kitchen if you are cooking often.

Kitchen Tiles (Horizon White):

Evorich Vinyl (Amsterdam Eggshell):

So placing side by side, it's almost the same just that it has different shades and grains. They still look similar, just that one is tiles, one is vinyl. There's no other closer looking tiles than this in Hafary..

Tiles and Cement delivered:

We also had the laundry poles removed, in preparation for the Steigenlaundy system.

Seeing that the reno journey is now officially starting to take flight, it's kindaexciting but also time consuming as either of us need to take leave to come down.. :unsure:
Companies should have renovation leave as part of the employee benefits.

Sadly, the remaining reno works can only continue with R&R after the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival/7Month.
So got to "tahan" till then.. At least i can look forward to a new kitchen/service yard area next week!

just wondering, how do you get approval to hack your kitchen flooring? its a new bto right?

 

Yeap, it's a new BTO.

We are allowed to hack the BTO kitchen floor/wall tiles. Just that the HDB 5years warranty will be void. Therefore, when your contractor/ID does it - they have to lay the waterproofing membrane as well.
I clarified this with HDB with black and white on email as well.

Thanks.
