It’s finally time to rewind back and continue posting on our renovation journey! 😀
Here’s posting photos from the time when the plumber, Lucky Khoon, as introduced by our ID on 17 July.
Every renovation has its own issues. Ours included though not as serious as some might faced. This was the most ridiculous problem of the whole renovation journey. Yes, it’s an invisible toilet bowl as seen in this photo. We had our toilet bowl delivered way early and was sitting in our living room. On this day when we had our plumber down to install the accessories, we realised the supplier of the toilet bowl actually gave us the wrong size (needed a 6″ but was given a 10″) only when the plumber was trying to install this new toilet bowl in our master bathroom. Zzz. And after millions of calls to the supplier and all, we got our toilet bowl. But it was only after millions of calls and emails. Such a lousy experience. Not forgetting we had to wait for an invisible man to come on the day they promised to deliver the toilet bowl. Wasted our leave and time. URGH. Do take note the brand: VELIN.
And of ‘cos, Lucky Khoon had their issues also. Late for appointments, not once but twice before our ID made it clear to them to be on time did they came on time on our last appointment. We find this most disappointing especially when we had to rush off somewhere after that and they thought we got all the time for them by being DAMN LATE. Zzz. So everyone do take note of Lucky Khoon. We are not the first to complain ’bout them anyway. You can Google their name and actually quite some negative reviews of them are around.
Saturday is a happy day! We finally got part 2 of our bathroom accessories from Hoe Kee at Genting Rd, which is also their main branch! 😀
Having read some negative feedbacks about Hoe Kee, this second visit to Hoe Kee wasn’t all that bad. The service staff was really nice and has a good knowledge of the stuffs we asked him. And not forgetting he looks really young so was quite amazed he can answer all our questions. 🙂
Bathroom Accessories Part 2
- 4 pieces of glass shelves
- 2 toiler roll holder
- 2 clothes rack
- 2 spray bidet
- 1 Blanco kitchen sink (the smallest we can find and still looks pretty!)
- 1 Velin toilet bowl (which Feng bargained for a lower price :X)
So overall rather happy ‘cos we got all the items we want! Just left with the rain-shower. Probably getting the one we set our eyes on at Hoe Kee after measuring our bathroom height. Rain-shower is such a pain to find something that’s nice and not too long. Stupid HDB’s fault for boxing up the pipes and lowering the height for a rain-shower! URGH.
After shopping at Hoe Kee, we took a cab down to Punggol and of ‘cos, as usual, it started raining or should I say POURING when our cab entered into Punggol. Like WTH?! Zzz.
So then we got off at Punggol Spring and made a visit to our house first before heading off to see a Eubiq demo at Damai Grove. Upon opening the door, surprise surprise! Some basic tiling work in areas not going to be affected by the hacking of our kitchen wall has been done! Yippee! Can’t wait to see more work done! 😀
So Sunday was a less busy day where we went down to Ted Collection for my 2nd fitting and Feng’s 1st fitting for his suits. Can’t wait to see the end product for my gowns and his suits this Saturday! 😀
After fitting, we went off to roam a bit along Balestier Road to look for our one and only one lighting left for the living room. Seems like nothing fits what the look we both have in our mind. It’s unbelievable how we just can’t find what we want. It’s either too expensive (at Park Mall) or all of them are just too modern for our liking. 🙁
So then we reached lightings.com.sg and decided to just purchase the lightings we have shortlisted from them the few times we visited their various outlets. Happy buys! We asked for delivery which is 18 bucks regardless of how much you spend with them. 😀
So it’s a tiring but still a happy weekend! Now looking forward to our photoshoot which is coming reaaaaaaaaal sooooooon! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee~ 🙂
So we applied leave last Friday as our ID will be bringing down the tiler and electrician. The tiler was there to take note of which area to do up the tiling base and kerb and what tiling what we doing for our house. So here’s some drawings he did on our wall to facilitate his work after the wall comes falling down (hopefully by this week! grrrr.)
The electrician was here so as to consult with him on the electrical points and installation we will have in the house and of ‘cos to give us a quotation of the electrical wiring cost. Shall wait for the quotation to be sent to us from our ID before deciding otherwise an alternative we have in mind. 🙂
So after the tiler and electrician visit, .we decided to head down to Sim Siang Choon at Changi to take a look at the bathroom accessories. Here’s presenting our basin and basin-mixer/kitchen sink-mixer. 🙂
We also got our storage water heater for them. The remaining accessories will leave it for our bathroom accessories shopping part 2 at Hoe Kee. 🙂
Many busy days to come and we already had the most tiring Saturday ever. We need a break!
