Happy New Year!
Daisy, thank you for remembering me. I was in Singapore in Dec/Jan. But I was sick half the time , away some of it and yes, I've started on my reno. I'm assuming that it's still going on. Probably right now, they are waiting for HDB to rectify some cracked wall tiles in the kitchen before proceeding with the carpentry. Managed to get HDB to do the screeding foc since we put in the request a few days before the 1-yr deadline.
Last I heard, aircon is in, painting, and flooring also done. And lights are in. But we haven't seen any of it, hope everything looks fine. Guess since we're not around to monitor the situation, we only hope that the work is "okay" lor.
It's quite disconcerting to read about the water leakage problems and pest problems. I wonder if a fumigation of the area would help. I'm super super scared of insects...can't get close enough to them to kill them!
Right now, when I see a bug, I just use masking tape to tape it down and my husband will take care of it when he comes home. If it's all over the wall, I really don't know what to do man.
Meanwhile, I'll just ask the contractor to see if there are any water leakage problems.
We lost our keys to the electrical box in the home...is it easy to pick?
Met our neighbours during the few times we visited our apt. It's quite funny really, at first they had quite a bit of stuff on the outside landing between our apts and at the stairway. Now, there's still quite a bit of stuff, but they try to keep it on "their half" of the landing...except for the one-seater sofa. But I guess, if they don't mind, we can share that
Hope to be back 3rd/4th qtr this year. Hope to meet up with you all again...Also hope that there will be a sheltered walkway from our cluster of flats to the LRT station.
May you all have a smooth year ahead!
