Hi Jes,
My ID has collected the 2nd payment from me on Sat already, he has completed the carpentry works before he collect it from us. So far we checked our cupboards, all ok.

I like my bedroom's wardrobe alot while my hubby like the living room wall feature. haha..

What we left now is to buy the bathroom accessories & kitchen accessories for him to help install only.

If not wrong, the next 2 weeks, he should be able to hand the hse to us. So excited!!

princesspig84/cherinet,

I would have gladly paid them if they've completed my carpentry works, but my carpentry works has only been half way done! and it has been in this status for the past 2 weeks. I really cant take it anymore, very angry. By right, they should have hand over the house to me on 20th Oct, but it has been delayed for so long, and he has the cheek to ask for $$!

Jes - For mine, second payment is when all the carpentry are up... my contractor did rush out the house for us so we also pay them pretty fast, as and well they need the money we will wihdraw some and pay them... think my payment break into like 5 or 6 times... my contracotr nv specify how many % to pay each time, he just quote us the figure and we pay lor... but we also will delay abit or cut the amount saying atm everyday can only withdraw $2K... hope everything will go well for you and get your lovenest soon... cheer up k...

Hi Nichiyobi,

that's a lot of you dun install aircon! actually i suggest you should look around your hse or the water pipe outside the hse whether got water leaking. Cos for us, our water pipe outside the hse got water leakage, then my hubby informed the Town Council about it and they have repaired it for us by calling the PUB technician.

so far the items i bought for my hse. Eg. Fridge, Washing Machine, Aircon are all Inverter type. Storage Heater i also bought the Energy Saving one. i will be looking into Inverter vaccum cleaner as well. I hope this can help us to save up some money.

From my past experience, on aircon at 1 room every night (4 rooms flat), the bill should be around $100 exclude gas lor. But currently the utilities rate been raise up again, so our bill will increase too

for our household habit is, on aircon every night, on heater for 30~45mins to heat up the water once a day, used washer&dryer once a week, cook about twice a week..but this quarter's tariffs will increase due to last quarter's higher oil prices..sigh..

Oh no, I prepared to faint when I receive my PUB bills. My hubby on air-con everynite and watch TV in the room while I watch in the living room cos I don;t like air-con. Hope my hubby will faint too after seeing the bill and stop his habit of air-con everynite.

I prefer Starhub..although I don't subscribe to Sports group, but the other channels like discovery channel, taiwanese channels are entertaining enough..

miumiu, probably you can try increasing the valve at the toilet, or when you lift up the top cover of the toilet bowl, you can see there will be a metal hook that is hooked on to plastic catch (which has 3 holes) these 3 holes control the strength and amount of the water to flush..

Raynard,
Im not sure if mine is the 3-tick water saving tap a not leh..?

Nichiyobi,
my hubby had already turned the main water switch to the max. and still the water levek is still so slow and small. Tonite we will check again

Its only the kitchen basin having this problem.. imagine i will have to wait for 5mins for the whole kettle to fill up? Sadz

I heard from 1 of the contractor that the water level will increase once the whole block is full. Dunno true a not?
