Stirling HDB Terrace - #116 Already doing Chores

there's so much dust in the house so i started sweeping...and got caught on camera.

Stirling HDB Terrace - #118 Bath tub

My poor bath-tub has been lying here in dust and cement. You must be thinking why did I buy my bath-tub so early. Well...Tile layer says he needs it to measure his tiles and in order to do that, he needs the bath-tub size and best if the real thing is here. So in order for him to do it right, rather than to get it wrong, i ordered my tub for him to do so, and with the tub, he could continue to plan the shower area which is beside my tub. So you's all related.

with tub's size, he now knows how deep/high it is and he can lay his bricks which will then support the tub. Next the tub will be fitted in before the tiles will be laid onto the bricks. And the shower space(which it's towards the right of the tub) can also be determined.

Stirling HDB Terrace - #114 ART?

think the workers must be playing a joke with us. knowing that we'll dropby the weekend to check on the works. see...their tools lay until swee swee for us to see. From SMLXL.

Stirling HDB Terrace - #113

YAY! maybe u can't tell the difference but they have cleared the dead palms away! Now leaving the dried leaves to be swept and a new concrete layer to be laid!
im thinking of planting some fruit trees...starfruit? papayas? mangoes? or jackfruit??? but hubs is afraid it might lure bats!

Stirling HDB Terrace - #108 DOORS for reference


just the other day, wj was telling me that he was interested in black doors for our new home. Well it was because uncle will told us that the back of the laminate for the doors are black so when the doors are being laminated, at the edges we would be able to see this fine line which is black in colour. And it will be super obvious for a white door.

however! for a black door, it would be perfect. And you would not be able to see the seam.

So wj was going hmm....

and here are some of my findings!

Stirling HDB Terrace - #108 DOORS


ABS MATERIAL for our doors
The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. A variety of modifications can be made to improve impact resistance, toughness, and heat resistance.

more laminates???

Uncle will is making us very confused. Because at first we agreed on wooden doors with paint finish. Now he is suggesting to us wooden doors with ABS finish. His reasons are: he thinks that we will reject his white painted wooden doors.

really? or he is testing our ignorance on doors?

Stirling HDB Terrace - #107 SATURDAY

come saturday, daddy decides to go and take a look at the progress of our reno works. And just outside our unit was loads of stuff which the men had laid out!!! Aiyoh. Even Uncle Will chided his men ...saying in hokkien : you think this road is your grandpa's one ah???

see the mess they have left just outside our place??? And they are filling in the grooves of our red brick wall.

YAY! and the false ceiling in our Yard is up.

a closer look at our frosted glass window at our toilet. And the cement screed is being laid after the ponding test.

someone is fixing the damaged plaster around our staircase area. And the electrician is back at work again after going back home to sweep the tombs. And hubs was telling him to put the meter box higher and he refused! Saying must be at 1.8m and hubs refused to believe him that where he put was 1.8 and told him to get a measuring tape...and hubs was rite.

the meter box was laid below 1.8 and it was placed at the electrician's convenient height so that he needn't stretch so much!!! HORRIBLE!

Stirling HDB Terrace - #111 SINKS & WCs

i was so busy taking down the serial numbers of our choices that i forgot to take the actual photos in the showroom! Well at least i have the serial numbers so i can sort of google them here!

Went to TOTO Fullsan Showroom down at 146,Jln Besar. Nicole was the one who served us.

Why we chose TOTO, initially we already had TOTO in mind since we worked with them before and we love some of their designs. Secondly, uncle Will was telling us to either get TOTO or Johnson Suisse as both have powerful flushes. Believe it or not, beginning i wanted to save water and insisted on 3 ticks water savings. However, i really needed one that can flush all in one go and not flush 2 times. hmm... if i have to flush 2 times, i will end up using more water rite?

my home one is a Johnson Suisse, and after 10 years, i must say it has been pretty good, although now i have to flush 2 times when i do a biggy. Also i checked out the Resorts World Sentosa hotels, they are also using Johnson Suisse.

However at the end of the day I decided to try my luck with TOTO. Because i love their soft cover seats, design and cyclonic flush systems!

quote from TOTO
TOTO flush mechanism combines a special pump to create a powerful water jet, extra-large trap size of 2-1/8" vs 1-3/4" for others, larger 3" flapper valve size vs 2" valves commonly used in others, and a specially contoured bowl to give a "cyclonic" effect to the water flush, all to produce an efficient flushing system using only 6 liters of water.

so here are our choices:

either this (omni series) or that (le blanc series)

Left: for guest toilet (quite confirmed cos it's very small!!!) Right: for master (maybe, still pending)
