finally get to know someone staying in the same block as me!
really? r they rushing to meet the deadline? if yes, that's really good news!
when i was there early Feb, this doesn't seem to be the case. in fact, dun see many pple at work. if nt for the occasional knocking sounds here n there, one would hv think there no one's working there.
same here, i oso do hope that they can complete it soon. in fact, i'm hoping they can give us the keys by early 05. hehehe...
My customary is in Dec 04. I see you in the Dec 04 brides tread too.
I also have given up on HDB on this project. They are not responsive to our queries at all. What makes me really anrgy is that they do not even inform us when the contractors are into financial difficulties. We, the house owners, have to read it from the newspaper!
There are progress on the site, but the progress is very slow. Usually, there are no work done on sundays, but yesterday, I do see people working. Only 3 person are working on 154! Maybe it is a weekend and most workers are off.
I am also keeping my fingers cross that they will provide us some good news. I think we will be seeing progress for the next few months, usually construction work will be affected during year end (Rainy season) and New year period (Long holiday break).
when i happened to saw this thread in the afternoon yesterday. I have also got a flat, blk 155 same as piper.. we are neighbours.. hehe.
My hubby has been monintoring the site since the started work, i think they have been working quite late after the CNY, my hubby friends staying right opposite complaint that its very noisy sometimes at night till 9pm.. but during the weekend, its extremely noisy. But noisy means they are working which means.. good to us.. hehhe..hopefully dun need to wait so long.
brambles, im having my AD on next yr Feb. You were saying that u might rent a flat but that will have extra cost, i know that HDB will rent to us a flat 40% cheaper then market price but subject to approval. Where do you intend to rent?
yellow, do not be worried,just pray hard that there will be no delay, if not i will go HDB to complain!
piper, theres a ECD date on the website stated is 2nd quarter of 2005. Den the HDB pple also funny,that malay guy attend to me sounds so unwillingly to answer my qns, i ask him will it delay again, he say 'not very sure', i ask why theres 2 ECD date.. he also say 'dun know'.. aiya.. den HDB employ them to solve our problem or just say 'dun know'
As least u managed to speak to someone. I can never find the officer that was assigned to us.
Then 1 day, I got so mad that when the person who picked up the phone wanted to transfer me to the assigned officer, I told her off - saying that the officer don't "cho gang". Leave him voicemail - no reply. Called him on weekday, he's either not at his desk or on the line. Call him on weekend, it's his day off. Very sickening attitude!
I've more or less given up hope. Now just wait when they want to hand over the keys over to us lor....earlier or later also makes no diff to me liao coz I'm oredi staying with my in-laws.
hi elaine, i'm oso v glad that this thread is revived. nice to know u girls cuz we're all in the same boat... n we can all keep each other updated on the construction status. better still, nx time can all meet to go for breakfast together. hahaha... how nice!
it's definitely good news to know that it's noisy @ the site. juz hope n pray that no more delays.
gals... if i'm nt wrong, the legally binding completion date is nov/dec 2005. so no matter wat, we shld be able to get our keys b4 that. otherwise, we can demand compensation frm HDB...
elaine, yah. i will most prob take up the transitional housing that HDB is offering. i hv already made some enquiries. currently, the rental units that are available r located at hougang. but surprisingly, it is nt offered to us at 40% discount. the rental rate is the same as wat they r offering to others. i might hv to go find all the newspaper reports that mention the 40% discount n go down to HDB to show it to them.
so if based on the current ECD, where will u be staying after ur wedding?
i've also given up on HDB. they r simply v inefficient.
brambles 1 try 2 times but just can't get through ur mail box. i will try again.... busy with my tests coming next week.
hai.... rivervale mall only NTUC and food court are making $$$,but the food there not nice. and the shops there doesn't seems to interest me at all, maybe Sakae sushi which is opening soon may bring more customer. i find that LRT and MRT is the only transport becos only 1 bus travel along that road.
This is dolphin here dropping by to say hi..
Kinda very sian abt the whole issue.. so not intending to mention much abt it. Friends and relatives kept asking us if our flat is here .. So sian until i told them that HDB does not wana burden us. It is really a sad thing not having a place of your own, especially if you not on good terms with your with ils and when you had a fight with fh not knowing where he has gone to... Things are fine for me except that rather grumpy abt the long wait.
hi dolphin, u're staying wif ur ILs now? hope u're feeling better now?
cheer up. little conflicts wif ILs may be inevitable when staying together. juz give n take a little loh. juz hope n pray that we can get the keys end this yr or early nx yr? btw, which blk hv u selected?
me oso v xian bout this thing. v demoralising to hear my parents or my hubby's parents tell us that our flat doesn't seem to be 'growing taller' (they drive by sometimes). sigh!
hey bugs... hows the progress there now? v heavy rain these few days. suppose it's moving v slow again?
I am fine. Thanx for your concern. I pop by on sat. The warning lights (on the crane) for the air traffic is still on. I was there ard 9.30pm. Grown taller by a few cm lor. I think the last time i saw was Level 10 half completed. On sat, it was covered up with netting, guess it was completed. I am at Blk 156.
hey girls u all r back to this thread, ya those blk facing the road had reach level 8 when i drove pass last week. i would rather the contractors take their time and do a good job, if not when u move in than problem starts to come up such as cracks on the wall etc. then big problem liao.
Hi all to-be neighbours. Glad that the constuction work has resumed but that also means that it's bringing more dirt to my home hahhaha.
By the way, juz curious, what are the altnatives given to you ppl when the original ECD was not fulfilled?
