Thks :dribble:

Ur FH of course veri excited MBR toilet so nice, nw is time to look for the right toilet accessaries for it. :notti:

yep yep ! gotta buy a few stuffs more !

Hi Gal.. nice to see everything moving along smoothly for you.. very cosy feel in your bathroom.. all the best and keep us posted on the development..cheers..

Thanks Ben3555 !

HDB finally finished the re-screeding my whole house ! I was so excited abt it that I forgot to take pics ! Hopefully it'll be dry enuf by Friday evening so that I can move the toilet bowl from the room and the plumber can fix it up.

The bad news ? The workers move the existing sand, cement and stone to my balcony :)! :) I hope that the balcony tiles are not damaged. My contractor did put the cardboard on top to protect. Thank God they did !

Now that screeding is off my mind, the next big hurdle was the done-halfway electrical and lighting points. URGH ! :bleah: Such an eyesore. Once that's done, i'll have a peace of mind.

Everything else is moving along nicely. The kitchen cabinets should be starting next week. Can't wait to see that once up as well as the painting and the flooring ! Wheeeeeee :yamseng:

where did you buy it from? most prob can do an exchange if the item is still packed in the original package

it's not as if you want a refund, it's true that the item cannot be used mah

worst come to worst, try to sell it here since so many pple renovating their home

sure got someone want a 6" WC bah :)

Realli hope can do exchange, have to call up the shop later. :~

Bought loads of lights last Saturday.

22 (13Wx2) downlights from Light + Form

3 "moon type" lights from Ikea + 11W bulbs

2 LOCK lights from Ikea + 11W bulbs

Total Cost: Slightly less than $800. Which is just nicely within my budget. :~ Hehe !

FH gt a phone call from our ex-electrician today. So weird ! Anyway, he was asking us if we want him to continue. I am thinking of using him (we didn't contact him previously cos dun have his contact number) as he had already done it halfway and know where everything is suppose to be. Plus, we have already paid him half the amount.

But also another side of me is cautious. In case that he is still in contacts with our ex-ID and may try to do something funny.

Our current ID is pretty flexible and dun mind the previous guy to do the wiring. If we choose a new electrician, costs may be higher but also at the same time, I might have a better peace of mind due to electrical works but probably stress over the cash.

What do u guys think I should do ? :P

One good news: Painting is to start tomorrow. Yea yea ! :notti::dancingqueen: That is most likely one of the most visible change u can see in the house.

Okay. i gt a flat price of $900 from the old electrician and an estimate of $1k - $1.2k from my ID's electrician. help anyone ?

U means your ex electrician offer $900 to complete the half completed works?

Your current ID's electrician charging u $1k ~ $1.2k to complete it?

So how much did u paid to your previous electrician??

I dunno, maybe he also the victim of your old ID and did not got the money u paid...

we paid our ID $650 but the electrician said that they paid him only about $400+. and we need to top up $900 more to complete the job.

and yes, our ID's electrician need $1-1.2k to complete the job.

like wat he said, seems that my ex-ID also cheat him out of the money abit lor. but then i still like a bit dun believe. haha!

alrite ! we have decided to go with ID's electrician so that the ID can co-ordinate everything (easier for us) and also peace of mind on the end result.

Good news for toilet bowl. We get to exchange it. Most likely going down this weekend to bring it over (so heavy !)
