jaimesu

New Member

jaime
think we here in Jurong is not so bad...try staying at the 'Teck Kar market' area... it's horrible on weekends esp sundays. Got a fren who stayed there n for once, I tot I was in India or what... so crowded!! :p

thikn the plot of empty land is catered to the dorm liao... *hopefully, govt may change their mind???*

hmmm...think someone were toking abt the instant n storage heater... Mine is a storage heater... find it rather good cos if I on it before I shower in the evening(heats up rather fast)... of course, have to off it after showering...
happy.gif
the next morning, u dun have to on it again...cos the water is still hot. The tank is able to keep the temperature of water hot at least for 10 hours or so... got a insulated capacity...
happy.gif
so it's not exactly electricity consuming... ;p

hi neighbours!

yes indeed storage heater is NECESSARY for anyone who intends to install a rain shower for their toilets. instant heater will not have enough pressure to push out the water and it'll most prob be reduced to a trickle.

btw ever since i submitted my defects list two weeks ago... progress is still very slow. no screeding is done yet but at least the tiles r all hacked away n waiting to be replaced.

hope things will speed up this week once the tiles r delivered...

babu n devil,

hw is ur renovations n rectifications getting along? just dropped by the neighbourhood last wkend n saw alot of tiles delivered n workers all over the area..quite an exciting feeling..lol.

do u think there's any furnitures or appliances that will be worth to grab for the coming Great Singapore Sale? really must make the most out of it! *grin

the walls in the building seems like to crack alot... think u saw when u came ot my place... hee..Mine patched up n somehow over time cracked again(did this a few times liao)... saw some new cracks too forming...sigh...I give up liao...really sianz...anyway, planning to repaint my place in another 3-4 years time... might be doing some minor reno too by then.. :p

jaime
my thinking also same as devila...so as long the entrance of the dorm is at the Soon lee road side...it's ok. Just hope they dun do some side/rear gate that's direct opp our blks!....*cross finger*
 

devila_mun

ouchie, as i mention, my reno is going on a painsickening SLOW speed.... with hickups here and there..... haiz......

when furniture window shoping yesterday at sungei kadut there..... some looks nice, but most of them i find it expensive n qualtiy not as good worth of the pricing leh...... and the sales people there also like promise the sky... makes me scare to buy anything from them...
sad.gif
 

devila_mun

lavender, do try to look out these few days if any other major cracks formed.... with all the reno going on on our blks, u never know if the vibration will effect your flat. thou i doubt it since u dont have any upstairs neighbour doing reno
happy.gif


btw, if u all notice, there is already a small 'bridge' over there across the big drain from ourside to the big empty field..... really hope tat's not going to be the 'SIDE/REAR' door!!!!!

think the reno opp n yours can be bad enough... :p pardon me...keke.. cos the drilling all those sound like just within the same unit... I rem the 14th floor one (the unit below yours) was doing some drilling n hacking n it feels like it's just next door..
sad.gif
thank goodness when u did yours, I was away from the din. If not, I can really get crazy esp wif the state I'm in now. keke...

anyway, the stupid cracks I'll forget about them. Just leave it liao.. too tired to care about them... it's so frustrating to try to do them right ever since we shifted into our place in June 05.
sad.gif
dun know how many times the HDB contractors came n rectified them..n it always come back just like what the workers said when they did the repairs.
sad.gif
same place...same kind of cracks...from floor to ceiling... thank goodness it's hair line... but they seem to get worse over time as the paint over the cracks peels off. That's why we plan to repaint our place in another 3 years time.

my hubby was so fed up that he felt like seeing the MP to complain about the quality of the flats in the area...haha... if u walk ard the place, u'll find alot of cracks within the buildings one... lousy workmanship.

lavender, ya lor.... pay so much yet still cant get it perfect... sian hor..... my tat crack from ceiling to floor the not hairline type leh... but quite big with at least 1-2mm gap de!!! tat's y so shock when it appeared!! and i could imagin, once it cracks, even if repair le, it will forever be there and waiting to spoil the paint n paster.....

saw it when my contractor 'CUT' the wall tat time, the 'knife' cuts thru the wall like hot knife to butter!!!! *slap my forehead*

in my old 24 yrs old flat, even hammering a sharp nail also difficult!!! cos the concrete is so tough, the nail will bend instead!!!!


ps lavender, there is still more to come from my unit, cos hdb contractors will only hack my toilets wall n floor after 15th may.... will try to tell u when so mabe u can avoild tat few days by going over to ur mom's or something...

reynerllica, i also thot of tat, but it wont be as shiok lor, unless u use it in the day time when the weather is HOT... (hence even the cold tap water also very hot)

lavander

no problem, this week my reno will be mostly doing tiling of the floor, so somewhat quieter....

Devila actually I think can be done as it does not need any storage heater straight away pour down cold water during this kind of humid weather will be nice
 

devila_mun

New Member
i am also thinking of this idea leh
happy.gif
at least can have best of both worlds ba
happy.gif
but still depends on the water pressure, i tot higher the flat, lower to water pressure??? true?

fallingflakes, which is worst i ask u,

my present flat, one side neigbour rent out to 4 or more china ppl at one time, these chinese move and change ppl every few mths... my other side, neighbour rent out to 15-20 indian workers, every nite sit outside their flat, TV on super loud even at night, radio indian songs on every loud... their clothings hang all over the corrider, every morning 5am, can start to hear banging of pots and pans from their flat.....
sad.gif


no offence to all indians lah, but did i mention the smell of 15-20 odd men living in close quaters of a 3 room hdb flat that is only 67 sq area???...
