my corridor..

or as indicated in the floor plan.. access balcony..

8 units on each floor, 4 units on each side, 2 units facing the park, 2 facing the non park.. duh.

those on the left with the gazillion bicycles are those units facing the park. The one with the gate open, is our neighbour, their renovation is almost done. Greg went to take a peek the last time we were there, the contractors were doing minor touch-ups, sofa, LCD tv, bed.. all in already.

i guess, we're going to be the last on the floor on this side to move in! hiakz. Save the best for last! YEEHAA!

TO semi conclusion

Called my TO today. He said my common toilet confirm no more tiles, have to hack. He will be meeting with the contractor tml, hopefully will be able to get samples of the tiles by the end of the week.

MBR toilet, he's still trying to source for the same tiles, cause apparently the MBR toilets were replaced a couple of years ago (they are not the original tiles that were put in when the block was first build, I dunno why they were changed in the first place though)

The electrician and the aluminium guys will be able to start work this week. TO said he will replace all my electrical switches and sockets cause the current ones are old models and have rusty screws, so yay! We get new switches and sockets!

He went 1 step further and said he will change our magnetic door stopper, cause I brought it up to him that the magnetic field wasn't strong enough. At that point in time, he said the stopper can hold the door can already la. So I was surprised when he said he will change it today.

And new doorknobs too, the current ones are stained.

Hopefully the contractor has tiles that we like, if not.. *bang wall* cos after going through each tile to check for chips and scratches.. and we still get back ugly tiles.. tsk tsk..

I asked him if the contractor has plain all white tiles, he said should have, cause they are very common, then he pointed out to me that plain all white tiles look very plain, like very old, retro like that, cause last time our grandparents generation, the coffeeshops, toilet tiles all is white plain ones. He was saying if the tiles are bigger in size, maybe will look nicer, but he's not sure what exactly is the size the the contractor will provide. So we'll just have to see the samples to decide. *fingers crossed*

went Ikea ..

Alexander on saturday.. bought a couple of cushions.. the green and yellow ones were going for $2.50, the other colors were going for $3.50. like weird right? Anyway, there were only red and blue left.

went to see the curtain panels.. not bad.. got 2 designs were on sale. but we din get any.

so today, we went Ikea Tampines. They had the same green and yellow cushions going for $2.50, but they had more other colors than the other one.

and the panel curtains.. we got them @ $9! original price was $19! GOOD DEAL SIA! tampinese didn't have the same design as those at the original store though.. Moral of the story.. East and West people have different tastes! lol

someone has an admirer in the office..

the person got nothing to do.. so he did this in skype..

no prizes for guessing who it is... lol

25 July 2007 @ 16:46:31 hrs


ok..

so.. TO's conclusion.. he will propose to hack the toilet tiles, see his upstairs approve or not. BUT we have to use the tiles that are provided by the HDB contractor, cannot use our own tiles. so fingers crossed they have respectable tiles.. hate those patterned ones.. argh. best if they got all white tiles.. then best already.

so the TO's not young one la! he's been working there for like 20 years already.. i think smelly smelly also got 40 years old already.. tsk tsk.

25 July 2007 @ 09:26:12 hrs


today..

the HDB guy going to see the unit for defects.. i'm going to try to convince him to change the tiles.. wish me luck!

24 July 2007 @ 13:27:19 hrs


Checking for Defects

Went down yesterday to take final defect list and submit it.

Decided to meet at bishan mrt @ 7am, so we could reach woodlands by 8, finish the list and catch Town Council before they closed. tsk..

Did you know you can submit the defect list online? We went to the Town Council, and the receptionist told us we could actually submit it online, but since we were already there, she gave us a Q number anyway. No one told us can submit online lor! Make us wake up so early.. tsk tsk.

We were hoping to find cracked/chipped/scratched tiles in both toilets so HDB will have to hack the tiles out to replace them with new ones, (cause our unit was built 6 years ago, the tiles they used, probably no more stick liao, so according to my sources, HDB will absorb the hacking and removal of debris costs, we just have to pay for the new tiles that we picked).

But we didn't manage to find any cracked or chipped tiles in the MBR toilet.. DAMNED! but there were lotsa uneven ones.. Wonder if they will retile the uneven tiles.. There were a couple of small chipped off the toilet tiles, and a few scratches and small cracks in the common toilet, don't know it they will hack the toilet tiles. Hope they hack both toilets. *fingers crossed*

Had to buy a lock for the place, so the contractors and HDB pple can go and check the defects and stuf.. din know locks were so expensive! $10+ to $200+?? Like so expensive lock? Got special powers to repel burglars ar? lol

1 contractor came to take measurements for quotation today. Apparently my ceiling is quite low, so might have some problem with the original L-box height or something like that, they were speaking in hokkien, so I only understood a bit. lol

After submitting the list, we went back to our house with the contractor, then we discovered the common toilet was leaking water! (Cause the previous time we were at the house, we switched off the main water supply so din notice it was leaking.) But we'd already submitting the list, I just put a masking tape on the toilet to indicate that its leaking. Hope they are able to rectify it.

Did you know?

About Household Shelters

    In peacetime, only fixtures that can be easily dismantled and removed are allowed in the HS. As a guide, all temporary fixtures/shelves and objects which the owner has placed or affixed in the HS shall be removable within 48 hours upon notice being issued by the SCDF.

Procedures for Shelter Occupation

    When the need arises (eg. before the onset of a war emergency), the SCDF would increase the public education programmes to prepare the population on precautionary and protective measures. Residents will be advised to prepare the HS for occupation and adopt the appropriate procedures for shelter occupation.

    Upon the sounding of the "Alarm" signal from the Public Warning System (PWS)., the occupants are to move into the HS. During their stay in the HS, they are advised to tune in their TV or radio for important messages issued by the authorities.

    Once the "All Clear" signal is sounded, the occupants can leave the HS and resume their daily routine.

did you know?

ok. after seeing the post on lindy's blog.. this one

qns: Which is the rooster's egg?
ans: roosters dun lay egg. but roosters share the egg with the hen wat.
col A: hen dun need roosters to lay eggs wat!!

WHA! EPIPHANY!

google searched.. 'how hens lay egg' are roosters needed for hens to lay eggs?

    rooster is not needed for a hen to lay an egg! Roosters are only needed in order for the egg to be FERTILIZED (to have a baby). Hens lay eggs with or without a rooster around.
how do roosters and hens mate?
    ... selects the female (usually the closest one to himself) droops one wing to the ground, circles her then grabs her by the back of the head and climbs on her back. Balancing himself by flapping his wings, he lowers his tail and places his vent in direct contact with that of the hen, where the passage of sperm from his cloaca to her oviduct takes place. The entire sex act takes less than 15 seconds ...


there you go. a hen lays eggs no matter what.. and additional info.. hens always lay eggs in the morning! and they only lay 1 egg a day, and each day, the eggs pop out later than the previous day!

brown eggs are no more healthier than white ones.. color differences are mainly dependent on the breed of the hens.

about those blood spots found in eggs..

    Blood spots occur when blood or a bit of tissue is released along with a yolk. Occasionally a blood vessel can break during yolk formation, so that a little bit of blood is wrapped up in the albumen. As an egg ages, the blood spots become paler ≠ a bright red spot is an indication of freshness. Blood spots occur in less than one percent of all eggs laid, and may appear in a pulletís first eggs, but are more likely to occur in aging hens.

    Meat spots are less common than blood spots, and occur when a piece of reproductive tissue gets caught in the egg. Meat spots may be tan, brown, gray, or white. Eggs containing meat spots are perfectly edible.

    If a chick is developing in the egg, you will see a network of blood vessels, not just a spot ≠ this is the beginning of the chickís circulatory system. In order for the egg to get to this stage of development it has to be incubated for several days.

NDP 07 2nd Combined Rehearsal

da bro managed to get us some tix to the 2nd combined rehearsal for this year's ndp, all thanks to jm! thanks dude.

i think.. the best part that i like about the ndp.. is the military display and the parade form up and the entire military thingy la! i dun really fancy the mass display leh. cannot tell what they are trying to do.. and usually, whatever the commentator sez, explaining on the theme of the display, i just go 'izzit? cannot see leh.. ', 'cant tell', etc.

have u guys heard this year's ndp theme song? like not very catchy like that.. at least i din like it immediately when i heard it at the floating stage yesterday.. oh, apparently, this year got 2! download them here

and because its just the 2nd combined rehearsal.. couple of funny cockups and cockster 'simulated' events, provided comic relief. lol i think mj's site will post more of the parade's pix over the next few days.. check it out here. i lazy to take the photos from him to post here.. heh. and i shall not disclose the highlights of the ndp. watch it live on ch 5 on 9 August 2007. ;)
