14th storey and counting

Updates on my new flat:

28th June

Currently at 12th storey

Progress seems to have slowed down, supposed to be at 13th storey this month based on 1 storey completion every 2 weeks. Fellow neighbors speculate the slow progress due to haze. On another note, those completed blocks have started on painting!

26th July

Currently at 14th storey

Progress has slowed down, i guess it’s going to be 1 storey completion every month instead.

One of the block had their internal paintings completed, that’s really fast! Some of our neighbors are already starting to look for ID/Contractors for the renovation and exchanging quotation prices. *gasps*

We’re also finally “seen” on the map. Heard that there’s a bus stop right at our block, i hope it’s true, it will be soo convenient!

11th storey and counting

Updates on my new flat:

26th April
Completed 9th storey, preparing for 10th storey

24th May
Completed 11th storey, preparing for 12th storey

You can see that our carpark is almost done up with the paint coating, left the garden top to be furnished. For those faster  progress flats, some have already completed the full 17th storey and the good news for them:

Their Probable Completion Date is revised earlier from Q3 2014 to Q2 2014! Meanwhile the rest of us are still eagerly waiting for HDB to revise ours as well, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Previously, i posted a video on the Tampines Town Hub which is slated to complete in 2016. On 11th May 2013, it was the ground breaking ceremony! The design of Tampines Town Hub was shared with the Tampines residents and here’s a video of it, got me looking forward to it again!

6th storey and counting

Hello all! I can’t believe that this is my first post of the year and it’s already March! *gasps*
Blame it on my laziness and endless procrastination 🙁 I swear i’m going to post up all the outdated post as soon as possible, so do keep coming back!

Just a little update on my new flat:

Feb 22
Completed 5th storey on February, preparing for 6th storey

March 3
Completed 6th storey on March, preparing for 7th storey

Seems like the progress is on average 2 weeks for 1 storey? Which means 20 more weeks (5 more months ~ July) to finish building our block of 17 storeys!
Lets wait patiently 🙂

Valentine’s Day Dinner @ High Society

Purple bouquet of flowers delivered to my office. Most memorable – the china delivery man called and said he couldn’t locate my office building and asked me to come down to collect the bouquet. Love was very pissed and he thinks the delivery man deliberately did that so he could shorten the time and do more deliveries. Oh well…

We usually celebrate with a huge feast at some hotel buffet after work but since this year’s falls on a Thursday, we thought of feasting on Friday instead so we can spend the whole night away without worrying to work the next day. The plan after work was to meet up with my Malaysia cousins whom came to Singapore for CNY visit at MBS, but due to the rain, we were unable to meet up, therefore, Mr.LTT and I went to find dinner ourselves, settled at High Society.

I didn’t know they only serve Valentine’s Day meal and that set meal cost $145++! Unexpectedly, we spent our Valentine’s Day meal at High Society.

That’s not the end of the episode, we waited for nearly 2 hours for the entire course meal to be served and the waiter only told us that they are short of chefs in the kitchen in the middle of our wait. It’s like i thought it’s Valentine’s Day and you guys should know that people (or rather couples) will be dining out. What’s the point of offering a Valentine’s Day Course Meal when you are not prepared.

Well, when the bill came, we said we are not going to pay the 10% service charge. At least the saving grace was that they offered a discount and compensate with two complimentary cupcakes.

Reached home and saw this postcard in my mail! Love from Steph during her Taiwan trip!
It feels good so loved to receive handwritten cards, those are rare gems now. <3

Jurong Point Malaysia Boleh!

One of the latest craze for west-siders is to flock over to the newly opened food court in Jurong Point – Malaysia Boleh located at level 3, which sells authentic Malaysia’s Street Food.

Although the food court has been opened since a few months ago, but the crowd has not died off, this shows that the food must be somewhat edible.
The most challenging part? To find a seat in the tiny food court. You will at least need another person to ‘chope’ seats for you, else forget about eating in.

I love the longan drink, drank up all by myself leaving not a single drop for Love. haha! It contains pieces of longan meat as well, i like!

Malaysia’s Bak Kut Teh is different from Singapore’s heavily black peppered Bak Kut Teh and there are also much more ingredients such as mushrooms and dried bean curd.

Chicken rice was so-so, chicken meat was normal but the chicken rice is quite fragrant.

Prawn noodle’s soup was too thick IMO

My mum used to fry these “nian gao” together with sweet potato and yam during Chinese New Year! Brings back the nostalgic taste!

Generally the foods are worth trying, prices are normal food court prices ranging around $3 – $6.
If you are bored of the usual food court dishes, you may want to try this out! We will be back to explore more!
