ID Research

Okay, before I do my research for the ID, I asked myself the following two questions.

  1. Will I be staying at this unit for long (my definition of long is more than 10 years)?
  2. How much I willing to spend on the renovation?

If I'm not willing to spend too much, I can just do the bare minimal renovation (i.e. all those basic carpentry works and things I need, not want). But if I have certain requirement/design/theme that I want to do, then I must be prepare to spend. nevertheless, I still need to find an ID that is trustworthy so I will have one less thing to worry about (i.e. Kena scammed or cheated). 😄 

Anyway, there's many ways to do your own ID research, it can be from online, word-of-mouth, walk-in or exhibition. For me, I prefer to do it online (like most ppl do 🤔), so I can read their review from their official website & Facebook. It makes it easier for me to choose the ID firm I want to contact.

Note : Do remember to check if they're CASE Trust and HDB Registered (very important to me) and if they have other awards or accreditation it will be a bonus.

Below are the IDs I send my request to (very tiring, keep repeating my requirements to different ID 😵); 

  1. GC
  2. GSID
  3. TTDA
  4. LS
  5. BRS
  6. SC
  7. SH

Out of 7 IDs, I only meet 5 of them. LS didn't even bother to contact me and BRS I decided to drop after spoken to him on the phone (Coz he keep inject his idea and reject mine 😤). I also drop GSID after our 1st meet-up, coz he give me the feeling that he doesn't really interested in taking up my project. The remaining 4 IDs, I have given them my requirement and ask for their quotation. After review their quotations, I've shortlisted GC, SC & SH based on their service, price and responsiveness (drop TTDA coz too expensive). After much thinking and consideration, I finally decide the ID I want to engage is SH. Because three of them were equally good, I have to go down to small small details to eliminate one by one.

So now need to wait for HDB to notify me when I can collect my keys (Praying hard🙏 that I can collect the keys in Nov or Dec 2019). 

That all for now. 😉

Items purchased during SALES! (Updated on 4 Mar)

Hello Peeps, so sorry there is no update of my blog since Aug. I'm still waiting for HDB to notify me for the Key Collection (1st Qtr of 2020). So I decided to side track a bit and share some of the things I bought online during the recent sales. HAHA!

  • Digital Door Lock – bought it on 27/08/2019.

Bought this digital door lock bundled from Lazada and the bundled consist of a Metal Gate lock (YDR50G) and Push and Pull Door lock (YMI70). The bundle also come with 2 free gifts - YSFT 25ET Safe ($159) + Smoke Detector ($73.9) but the down side of this free gift is that you need to redeem it personally at Kaki Bukit TechPark, within 2 months from the purchase date.

  • During the 11.11 – I have bought the following items and I think I save quite a fair bit during the sales.
    • Frap Rainfall shower set at $87.0.
    • Frap Bathroom & Kitchen Tap at $36.70 and $27.90 respectively.
    • Dibea F20 Max Vacuum Cleaner at $188.0
    • Philips Azur Elite Steam Iron at $194.0
    • Philips Essential Ceiling light (Moire 16W) at $27.93 each
    • Philips Water Purifier at $187.11
    • Yeelight Crystal Sensory Mini Ceiling light at $25.90
    • Yale Digital Door Viewer at $131.33
    • Hanging Light for Dining area at $104.50
  • During Black Friday Sales –I bought my rice cooker and Stand Mixer, I think I manage to grab a good deal for the Stand Mixer. Happy with my purchase. 😄
    • Zojirushi - 1.0L NS-TSQ10 rice cooker at $188.0.
    • KitchenAid - 4.8L Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer (Apple Green) at $549.0

A quick update on the things I have bought recently (not from 12.12).😁

When I browsed through Gain City Website a couple of days/weeks ago and notice that there's an on-going sale on some of the home appliances.😬 The price for all the items I've shortlisted seems quite reasonable and within my budget.💰 On Sunday (5 Jan), I decided to head down to Gain City @ Marina Square to do some shopping. It happens that they are conducting a mini fair on weekends and the price is slightly lower than what it shows in their website (ranging from $10 - $100). So, I decided to place my order for the following items;

Gain City

  1. Aircon - Daikin system 2 @ $2,689 (MKS65tVMG)
  2. Build-in Oven - Brandt @ $1,249 (BXP6555B)
  3. Gas Hob 2 burner - Brandt @ $359 (TG1482B-PUB)
  4. Cooker Hood - Brandt @ $399 (AT1490X) new
  5. 2 Door Fridge - Samsung @ $799 (RT35K553ASL/SS)
  6. Washing Machine (front load) - Ssmsung @ $939 (WW90K6410QW)
  7. 55" QLED Smart TV - Samsung @ $1,999 (QA55LS03RAKXXS)
  8. 5.1CH Soundbar - Samsung @ $699 (HW-Q60R/XS) new

For item 2 to 5, there's a further discount of $310 in total by Gain City. I'm not sure if my purchase is the cheapest in town but I quite happy with my purchase, at least is much lower than what I have budgeted. 😉

Other items purchased; 

  1. 2-seater sofa - Bed & Basic @ $517
  2. Dining table set - Castlery @ $1,380
  3. Ceiling Fan with lights - Eco-Airx @ $569 new

Will update again when I buy more things.

Hello!

I have been notified to collect my keys this month(Canberra) but I haven't the determination and "courage" to set on my choices and buy items during this year end sales period. 

The only item I got during Black Friday is a bathroom fitting which I had eyed for a long time and the discount was good. 

You must have a good space at your current home to stock up? My mum will "kill" me if I take up her precious storeroom space🤣

Just sharing my sequence of hdb notifications leading up to key collection for your reference. 

Oct 2019 - received notification to update Further Particulars on MyHdb Page. 

Dec 2019 - received notification to collect keys (hdb will only notify you one week prior to key collection date) 

Thus have you been notified to update your Particulars? That will give a bit of hint when you will be collecting keys.
