my goodness! they are so super gorgeous, like a dream home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Super cozy and comfy feel!!!! Great work there!!!! Is that a walk-in wardrobe? or door to washroom? The dressing table outside makes it so easy to touch up.
As we continue to live with my parents after marriage, as this flat is co-owned by me, so if we apply new unit, my parents will need to repay me more than $35K, and since my husband doesn't mind living in, we continue living here. Unless we have enough money to get private property, till then, we will still be here.
The drawback is that we don't have a chance to whip up 'Our Very Own' home. I love decorating my home though. Then again, life is such that we just don't get everything our way.
angelia....dats veri true....we may have brush past each other countless times thou unaware...kekeke....
lissy....i miss d times wen I lived in wif my in laws....hubby situation is same as urs but we have no choice but to sell dat place to set up our own luv nest as there is insufficient room for everybody......it's nice to have hot meals every nite aka lovely home cooked food.....now we still have it but lesser frequency as they stayed juz opp our blk..kekeke..
haha.. I cooked in the past. My mum walked in to say 'wow, you are the TV cook or what? cook a few dishes, you are using up all the plates and bowls!"
Right, I am those that have to prepare the ingredients before hand. The lack of experience which means lack of speed, would require the preparation first..heee.. The problem is that I don't know how to recycle them!!!!! Funny right.
blursotong....tot usualli u guys will dine at ur parents place previously??? no longer d case liaoz har......it's tough to handle bb, work, houseworks & list goes on.....catching enuff sleep is d last thingy on earth.....
mayb try cooking sumthg simple like a one dish meal such as beehoon soup, fried rice, fried noodles or stuff like dat....=)
angelia...kekeke...one of a kind huh.....basically my in laws are veri nice ppl who dun interfere wif our lifestyles.....we could still njoy late nites out esp on sats....sleep in on suns....life is a breeze wif them ard....further more...lesser HOUSEWORKS!!!

we saw many 'fei guo - flying dog' buses dat shd cater trips to TP...CKS in taoyuan which is abt 1.5hr fm TP....tis shd b d rite time to go which they shd have more suitable clothings for our climate.....dun thk it's tough to get ard TP...grab a map fm airport which will get u by....local ppl are veri frenly & willing to help...dats' for sure~~~~ njoy ur trip ya.....
Thanks everyone for their kind words!! I just finished my wedding, super duper tired!!! Will be back tomorrow & honeymoon will only be in July.
I really enjoyed myself, it was truly a great wedding!! I particularly like the express video highlights of the morning session, very funny & well-done! I really want to recommend my video man Ian from i-studio, he really knows how to make my guests laugh!! Even my grandma was so very amused by him!! Hee... PM me if you all need the contact!
wahaha.. it's always like that during the initial stage of starting a biz.. hang on..
no lah, me also not very good wif directions. this is the first time i'm venturing alone. maybe will end up like u, everyday go same place, hahahhaa. or maybe even worse, everyday stay in hotel watch TV
ooh.. ya, heard pkg tour very stressing.
i did some research on the several bus coy but i can get diff route for same coy, pengz.. dunno which is most updated.
think i'll take Evergreen from CKS to Minquan West Rd Station, nearer to airport and Beitou too. then hor, think will not be as confusing as TP main station.
as for shopping, think i'm more interested to get more clothes and shoes for my 2.5yo than for myself.. hahahaha..
AGREE!!!! Following packaged tour can kills joy, but I think there are those city tours that you may want to consider taking up. Like 1 day city tour kind of thing.
I also know some established tour agencies actually have more flexi package, like half free & easy, half tour kind of package. I am for one, those that can't wake up at 5am and asseble at lobby at 7am.
My first trip to USA, was a killer! What fame of walk in beverly hills, Grand Canyon etc, I literally slept through the journey! It was so terrible that I lost 5 kg when I returned from the trip. It took me 3 months to recall where I actually visited.. *faintz* for the first 3 mths after returned, I only remembered I was dog tired! It's strange they made you travel in a coach for 7 hours, then woke you up to just stop by at Grand Canyon and fame of walk (or any other places) for 10-15mins. I was so in trance (heee.. I got stone time after waking up from sleep), I chose to sleep in the coach!!!!!!!
My 2nd trip to USA was a great one! I enjoyed the half-day city tour around San Fransisco, relaxing, non-rushing, and goody goody!
angelia...dun worry im sure u will still get to njoy ur trip wif ease.....at least thr's no language barrier.....d other thing u could do is to email ur hotel & check for d easiest way to get to hotel...dat way u wun have to worry dat u will take wrong bus or travelled in opp direction...kekeke.....thr's a thread here (Taiwan - F & E)in SB forum dat gives pretty gd advice thou it seems not to b active...however can always refer to archive threads......
lissy.....good for u at least can sleep on d coach cos im's a fussy sleeper.....cant sleep on coach....at most 'nap' for 45 mins.....longest I tried....see hw torturing it is....mi oso lose weight cos eat & drink veri little for fear of long distance travelling....can b veri mah fun to ans call of nature....
Hi lissy, sorry missed your post! Thanks for your kind words on my home!! Its a few months of hard wrok coordinating the reno & furniture but I am satisfied!! Yes, that is a walk-in-wardrobe, we convert it from a storeroom beside the MBR.
You are welcome Serene! I like SG style because its modern & I like the effect they did. As for ian, I need to look for his charges because cannot really remember, will PM you the rough gauge.
thks Dina for ur PM....im realli attracted by SG style cos it's unique...of cos coupled wif a pair of photogenic wifey & hubby.....u certainly look great....so envy of given so many gowns & styles for ur PS....can't wait to see ur AD pix....
btw can ur AD gown b seen in d album??? which one har?
hmmm, think i won't need to join half day tours too.. too much time to spend. think can visit the places at a VERY SLOW pace!! maybe each day juz visit 2 places. else for some days i'll be stuck wif nothing to do
ya, went to that thread, but like no one around at the moment. browsed thru the archives & picked up some info too. though the bulk of it i got from tripadvisor.com. but hor, too much info overloaded too... lost in the maze, hiaz...
now trying to group the places that are nearby / can be covered together, then draw up some draft itinerary. also need to decide which are the places to leave for wkend to go wif hubby.
just talked to hubby & he mentioned maybe we shld go Kaoshiong on one of the 2 wkends since there's an express train (1 hr ride). looks like i hv to do research on Kaoshiong too
angelia...personally I find dat Kaoshiong is a nice city to visit & since thr is an express train service, makes it even more accessible unlike previously have to travel via coach which requires abt 6 or more hrs....let mi see if I could help by scanning thru my horrendous itinerary to see if thr may b any interesting place worth visiting in d vicinity....hopefully can get back to u real soon.....=)
Dina....still need to be photogenic mah....enhancement onli take cares of 'imperfection' such as scars, marks onli....thou may not recognize in real person due to make-up mah......=)
yup...appointed my BS liaoz locally however they onli provide 5 outfits inclusive of AD WG, EG & PS gown, realli ngeow of them....envy u to have so many gowns further to dat still new gown for AD....nice of them...will wait patiently for ur AD pixs....
wow, u mean nowadays they provide so many gowns in the pkg? think i only hv about 5 (AD, EG, PS gown, PS evening gown x 2)
my itinerary almost ready, but think needs revamp, cos extend 3 more days stay, hahahhaa.. hubby says my itinerary too rush. everyday leave hotel @ 8-8:30am (cos hotel @ Beitou not TPE City central central). ask me to slow down, sleep more.
after extension, now i scare i too much free time dunno do what & hubby says, stay at hotel watch tv lor.. pengz..
flying tmr, but not very excited. maybe too tired from past weeks surfing for info (almost everyday slept around 4am!) pray hard all goes smoothly.
Does anyone know the market price for a 4-room resale flat at CCK Crescent? My agent brought me to Blk 69X, considered quite high floor, but couple trying to ask for 20k above valuation! I think it's a bit ridiculous coz the renovation not nice, and quit far from MRT also.
Hi CJS, You need to be patient and see more flats. Don't be too rushed. I bought my EA (141sqm) at 32K below valuation (couple is divorced and forced to sell). My block is 671A. I saw about 15 flats before I was lucky to find this one. You can also go to http://www.hdb.gov.sg/bb33/ispm051p.nsf to check out recent transaction prices (last 6 months) for a flat around the block you are viewing to see what is the average selling price. Good luck!
Hi Angeline, I have been to 5 flats so far.. but usually in the mid-floor level. So I was quite surprised to see such a high-floor unit >16, unblocked and windy. But 90sqm only. Does anyone think it's worthy to up another 20k above valuation? Guess it's the normal strategy between buyers and sellers... will become more stress with more buyers coming to view. Sigh...
CJS....usualli 4 rms demand higher price as compared to 5rms & above so it could be quite a norm.....if u are not in a hurry then take ur time to look around as most of d flats in tis area have reached >5 years so it's a matter of time dat more flats will be sold in d market. Alternatively u may wish to get ur agent to neg wif d seller...asking 20k may not nec means dat they could release at 20k.....good luck & hope I have helped.
no, no. end up did not go to kaoshiung, 1 day trip is too rush. can't afford 2 days. but think cover most of the places that i've intended to go/visit. luckily visited CKS memorial b4 they changed the name. seems like till now still having conflicts & tourists are avoiding the place at the moment.
wah, u bot even more than me, hahaha..
the pc dunno what prob is it, after the Windows logo screen, then get blank screen. try to start in safe mode, but hang midway. surf the net and managed to get it fix by booting up with installation disc, n run chkdisk, real lucky. seems like a lot of pple get the same problem.
haha.. me SAHM, so always no holiday except when i throw my gal with my mum
oh....anyway taiwan always having political issues...they have changed d airport name fm cks to taoyuan airport oreadi?? actualli cks memorial isn't a very fantastic place to visit....it's juz dat it'a a norm to visit dats all.....
im a super shoes fanatic so everywhr I go.....shoes will b my muz buy....so far d worst will b in BKK....abt 10 pairs...kekeke....hubby always ban mi fm shopping for shoes.....
it shd b quite nice to be a SAHM cos u could spend time wif ur ger.....quality times around her age wen her learning process is d its peak.....wen she nap it's oso ur 'holitime' mah, can sneak for a rest or sumthg.....
