so good! how come I dun have this kind of event back then.

I notice there is no door track for bedroom door, good for u!

the bathroom tiles looks quite nice, a pity u gonna overlay.

1 suggestion, can you post a reply to this thread that you have updated an entry? that will prompt us that an entry was made. Thanks.

HDB didnt invite u to any event during the time u were waiting for your flat ma? I thought this was standard procedure for all estates. Anyway is nothing one, just MP come here smile smile and give away free umbrella only. Most of the info there already within that brochure they gave when u first apply for the flat.

Ya I also notice the ground got no door track heng. But sian the small wall and sliding door that I wanna hack away got electrical outlets. While ID say still can hack away, I'm guessing rewiring will add more money.

Thanks for the suggestion! If there is a new blog entry I'll post a reply. Yea this is one of the side effect of trying to have all the blog entries in one readable go and I also not sure if I allocated enuff for future posts too considering I haven't get key yet lol!

Eventually after all is finish, I'll also put a "table of contents" at first page to help navigate better too.

Blog Entry Date: 23rd May 2017 Tuesday

Over the weekend I attended a HDB Roadshow that was basically a RC event to familiarize everyone in my future estate on our future neighbourhood in Admiralty.

Interestingly, they also took actual onsite photos of apartments of people who chose OCS components for their apartment and displayed them as a slideshow. (This is very useful information because for the first time I can finally visualize how it actually looks like when my apartment is completed and this is good info to show my ID.)

Living Room Area Shot 2:

Is your electronics , like oven , aircon , heater already included in your 20k ?

25k for such a small flat if purely on renovating (not including extra furnitures / ovens/ heaters/ aircon) feel painful :S..

False ceiling?
Platform bedroom? 
hard to see from ur 5d planner doesnt allow to view 3d ... wierd.
Overlay toilet and kitchen (same idea too )  (planning to remove the cloth hanger and install steigan brand THAT , or get samsung dryer washing machine ) lol 
mine 47 sqm.. but years to go la.. at least ur getting yours.. now... lololx... sianzz

 

Nope electrical appliances aren't factored in the 25k. I budget 10k for that. Furniture is also separately budgeted at another 10k
I'm guessing ill probably not use up the whole budget I set but I thought I'd just put extra aside just in case.

My links do allow 3D view. You need to click on the icon on the right panel that says "3D".
Is there anyone else who is unable to see the 3D view in my 3D design in 5D planner? Do let me know, I'll probably do a screenshot or something for folks who are unable to access.

You're lucky u got a 47sqm. However, based on your reply in the other 2 room thread... I'm ... not sure if a 2 room flat is a good choice for you though.:huh:
No offence, but your infamous quote categorizing 2 roomers being "mishapen and twisted individuals" ruffled more than a few feathers...:rolleyes:
Maybe u want to give up your 2 room and give other 2 roomers a chance and consider buying a resale 3 room or even a much bigger resale 4 room instead?

Just saying.

Some basic criteria i needed from the textures of the tiles I want:
1) Flooring for the Kitchen is going to be mildly rough because if I do some deep frying and make the kitchen oily,
it will not be as easy to slip and fall compared to a more smooth floor.


Oh yea while browsing around in Lazada, I found THE EXACT LAMP that i wanted for my BEDROOM!!!!! OMG!!! :wub::wub::wub:
Wow, but at $50 each, they aren't exactly cheap, :( but ..... MEH why not right? I went ahead checked with Jason about their dimensions,
and once he says they are fine for the bedroom, i proceeded to buy them. I look forward to seeing them when they arrive!! :D

when tile is rough it is not slippery, yes. but it is also more difficult to clean cos oil will stick onto it easier too. 

I bought a similar lamp from TB. lost the link and price but it shd be < $20 but of cos the plug is for china and not for sg. just need an adapter to use it in sg.

cant wait to see ur further update! :D

philips sales is once a year so worth to go and have a look lah..... last time i also buy like 4-5 months in advance. they can keep the stock for you if you do see anything you want. but if small electrical items like rice cooker, vacuum cleaner etc, you can put at your current place. will not take too much space.

 

Only once a year? Noted Thanks! :)
