Hi @mmoh,

As you can see the different from your toilet ceiling. The height become quite intimidating but it is quite solid. But I am just afraid of mickey mouse and xiao qiang hiding in there or the pipes leaking but cannot see.

Interesting new design nowadays.
I agree over time, it may rot or have pests living inside.

Well, i guess its HDB way of covering up the bathroom sanitary pipes I guess.
Another good point I realized when living highest floor is that there are no such pipes in my bathroom.

I managed to look inside the false ceiling, as i suspected, the tiles are incomplete and cement exposing raw ... sigh ... maybe use false ceiling to conceal rush work ...

Wow i'm sorry to see that. The raw cement really looks like a rush job. I'd expect them to at least screed properly.
The way I see it, you have 2 choices to rectify this:
1) Get BSC to do a proper patch up.
2) Get BSC to remove the false ceiling, and pay contractor to do a nicer looking ceiling.

Depends on the BSC. Just let them know got defect and need to remove.
Do note, the wait might be very long as the BSC need to tend to every residents in your project.
If not, you will need to get your contractor to remove.

Actually i've been in my new place for half a year already. Time pass so fast.
So far so good ba, nothing broken or spoil thank god. I'm interested in seeing
how Rufus58's reno is coming along. I think by now should be done already i guess.

if u hv false ceiling, then your neighbours shd have false ceiling too. guess the contractor think that since it is hidden, then dun need to touch up nice nice.

if u wanna remove the false ceiling, then maybe they can help you to scrap off those extra cement. but if u expect them to remove the false ceiling, scrap off those extra cement and then still put back the false ceiling, i doubt they will do it. but no harm to ask lah.

Thanks. Ya i also like my kitchen trolley. Its expensive, but the marble top adds that little bit of classiness. :lol:
And its very functional too, been using it to do my food photography, utensils storage.

55" TV for me is just nice. Not too big, not too small.
Which ever tv size you choose, try to ensure there is still a wall border spacing of at least 15cm all around it.
This will make it look like a picture frame without it looking too unwieldy.
