prov, WAH.. so central leh.. err district 12, u referring to which side ah.. 12 still got getting freehold 1200< for close to 1M, 3 or 3+1 bedder type. But the others dun think will drop tat much to get tat big freehold below 1M. Hard but may not be impossible. Just need to open eyes big big.
nelle, dun wan aust can go NZ. Taiwan as prov say good choice also...
lsntyl, condo must also see leh.. cos condo means bank loan only and need to plan for the repayment. Also need to pay more per month also. If wanna get, please get a good area hor, dun go for the feel of staying in condo go buy where there are many HDB around u too.
nodding *agree with sotonglet on the pricing of condo vs HDB*
Taiwan sounds good
I haven't been there for almost 12 years...haha... and I didn't get to see any of it cos it was for a work convention at that time (daily hotel-convention-hotel kind of thing). Will it be cold, like, need to wear jacket-all-the-time kind of cold?
sure, i'll tell u wat's nice in beijing after my trip....n i'll b going to tianjin too, always wanted to go to shanghai though...there's juz too many places dat i wanted to go le
aiyo, u rich lady....travel so frequently wor....d thought of going to japan in jun is alrdy killing me cos i think all d things will b v ex there
i think taiwan or hk will b a gd place in nov....been to hk in nov n been to taiwan in mar, both places r cooling when i visited
wat abt korea? but i duno if it meets ur budget...
heheheh.....thanks gal, sure i'll have fun in my colleagues' coy.....same here, my hubby dun wana pay for a china trip so i dun think there's ever a chance dat he'll go wif me....so i'll juz have to explore china wif my frens...think apart frm beijing, d other place i wana visit is shanghai den shd b done
heheheh....yah same here, wld prefer a HDB over a condo unless d prices r really competitive, given d floor area dat i wanted n location ( wanted to b located near mrt or shopping facilities), i think is gona cost a lot....i want a 110 -130 sq m, really need d storage space for all my stuff
Ya lah, Sotonglet, ha ha, very ambitious hor, want central, some more want it cheap, where got deals like this.. balastier area for district 12. The developers are moving towards releasing small units in order to make the price reasonable. Very soon, our unit sizes will be similar to those in HK.
LSnTYL, agree with nelle and Sotonglet, plus don't buy condo with multi storey carparks, to me, that spells "low class" big time.. ha ha. No lah, seriously, a HDB is always good as a first property. If you can wait, do wait.
There are condos with multi-storey carparks? Like the ECs? Visited the EC in Simei. Was so cramped and didn't have a condo feel at all. Felt just like a HDB. Hubby n I are v nua atm. Crossing fingers prices will drop in later half of the year.
Meiling>if Japan is stressing you out so much, maybe you can sell the tickets instead? Although its a bit wasted but with the $ from the air tix, maybe can pay everything for a short trip nearer to SG? Just a thought.
Mei, it is the eating & shopping that are expensive in Japan. Is it a tour package?
Maybe after June, no travelling for you lor.
haha...mei & provi, I am not exactly rich...just manage to 'spend & invest wisely' so don't need to worry much on money for travelling. Sigh, I am limited by 17 days of annual leave and my partner has only 14 days, so we can only go to limited places. The worse is his company is those type where you cannot use up your leave in advance, ie, eg, you are entitled for 12 days of AL, it means that every mth you can take 1 AL, or cannot take more than 6 AL at Jun. The AL must be 'earned' 1st.
im considering d few options given to me....but my hubby felt dat it's abit wasted to forgo my prize n gd luck....hehehe, if i can sell d tickets at 1/2 price, i can even pay for a short trip n have some shopping cash but i wonder will ppl pay for biz class tickets in tis kind of bad situation
yah lor, d shopping n eating as well as accomodation is extremely ex in japan esp in tokyo area, i managed to change my return tickets to tokyo to 1 stop tokyo n 1 stop osaka so dat i can visit more places but den may have problems travelling to n fro cos im not familiar wif d places there....im thinking of booking my air tickets but den im afraid dat d tour wont b confirmed n den im stranded wif d tickets w/o any package cos i need to confirm my dates by end of mar....
sigh, i've to make a trip to KL end of d yr to attend my hubby's fren's wedding....felt bad cos she n her hubby-to-b travelled all d way there down to attend our wedding last year....
just went a whole day of house hunting today, and seems like all owners today were going for below valuation. really happy, so shall wait out the price even more and slowly see the prices drop. one of them was pretty awesome, very move in condition, so hardly need to spend on reno, just need furniture.
prov, thanks for the lobang, we are interested. could u give us the details pls? most probably can only visit on sunday.
hmmm... the area where I'm staying still have people selling above valuation, about $10-$30k! I was talking to neighbours and the other 'downstairs aunties', just kpo and ask if there are really people buying at those prices. Amazing that there are still people who are cash-rich. Generally 3 & 4room units are quite expensive, prices are 5room/EM & above are falling.
Pinky> just email her directly.. she is selling the Nachos all the time.. just that when she post in the thread.. she has only 7 days to do a Bulk Purchase thing.. coz they need to pay $25 for a 7 day advertising period..

We are still renting out ours... prob next year then we get it back.. no hurry... anyway.. HB is ID.. he'll be able to do it even if i'm preggy..
Dun need me to be there. but i would want to ensure everything is done to MY expectations though.. hahaha.. ;P
Me ah.. not so soon. Intend to enjoy a year first. For me, I stay with in laws.. I dun even have the luxury of er ren shi jie to start with. Besides, I still want to go travelling so baby plan to be on hold first. Establish the relationship first.
hehehe....i got carried away cos there were so many designs n they r a lot cheaper than sg wor....some r jackets, some r sweaters so hopefully i get a chance to wear them if i travel to countries dat r cold
how i wished dat they can extend d shopping time to 2 more hours....i didnt managed to go down to d basement to buy shoes
but den it's a lot of satisfaction cos u can slashed d price by 75% cos they usually quote u a v high price....hehehe, lotsa tuggling cos they all want ur biz so eventually they'll give in to u
d food is ok but den too oily n salty to my liking...somemore we r fed like pigs cos every meal has abt 8-10 dishes....it's no gd for my waistline it was rather sunny but cold ard 12-15 degrees but v windy....lotsa ppl fell sick during d trip cos of d unpredictable weather
