Having a place of your own, where you call home.
The day we got the keys to our new home, it was the most exciting day everrrrr. That the start of building a new life with your partner. No matter how long you guys used to be with each other, being together in your own place will be totally different.
First off, you will spend aloooot of time inspecting the house. Any loose tiles, cracks on the walls, loose on the window glass, door knobs, power plug.
Tips: bring along a phone charger to test out all the power plugs to make sure every single one works!
You have 7 days upon key collection/before your renovation starts to lodge a complain to BSC (I was lucky the centre was right at my block so we didn’t have to walk much).
We have found the right ID even before we got the keys(yes we were that ready!) and deposited the money. It took around a month plus to complete everything, some were done by ID, we engaged our own contractor for lights/fans installation:
- Kitchen cabinet
- window grilles
- Bathroom glass panel
- False ceiling
- Paint of whole house
- Water Heater installation
And let me tell you this, moving in to a new house require LOOOOOOTSSSSS of stuffs you can never imagine! Even those little stuffs could slip your mind!
Things you gotta buy your own:
- Curtain rod
- Home Broadband
- Home phone
- Shoe Rack
- Store racking(important)
- Table covers
- Kitchen utensils
- Cleaning products
- Tissues/Kitchen towels/Toilet roll
- Toilet accessories
Well I can’t remember everything I bought all at once, but trust me, you need stuffs which you thought you might not need! haha!
So yeah, we are still in the process of unpacking even though we have moved in nearly a month now.
As of now, no feeder bus available at the bustop nearby, I really the bus would be routed there soon!
