My curtains and blinds from Alto Fabric garnered lots of praises from friends. I previously casually blogged about it however there were queries via my social platforms and emails asking who I used. I had contacted Damien from Alto Fabric thru Facebook. He had supplied curtains and blinds to my ex-colleague Christine and she raved about him. Good recommendation Chris!

Here are some pics of the curtains and blinds!

[Review]

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I installed an automated laundry system from Steigen. I promised to write a detailed post on the system as most of my friends were rather interested in it.

Just to recap, some reasons to why I chose an automated laundry system.

  • The manual pulley system provided by HDB was cumbersome and troublesome to use.
  • We did not have the space to install a dryer.

Some other reasons are:

  • In the long run, we'll save more money than using a dryer. An electric dryer can be costly as the energy consumption can be extremely high. Also, with Singapore's climate, save for a few months during the monsoon season, we usually have hot temperatures that is sufficient enough to dry our clothes in good time.
  • It's less tiring to use. The manual system requires much effort. You'll need to pull, release the cord in certain angles. Heck, with a newborn now, I don't even have time for myself these days. To have to deal with the hassle of the pulley and cord system, would definitely make me lose my patience.
  • With the automated system, all I have to do is press a button. Extremely convenient with the least effort, time, money and steps needed. I love the remote controlled system. Less effort indeed!
  • The system also has a safety mechanism where it lowers at a steady speed. If it encounters an obstruction, the system will halt immediately. Aside from that, the material is made out of strong aluminium which can withstand heavy weight.
  • I love that the poles are retractable, I can lengthen and shorten the poles according to my needs e.g. When I dry bedsheets, I lengthen the poles. For lesser laundry, I can shorten the poles and use less space!
  • In-built LED lighting. Instead of installing a light, I utilised my existing lighting point for the system.

While there are other automated laundry systems with other features such as UV lights and/or fans, I found it unnecessary.

We took some pictures during the installation which was a breeze.

Have been so busy with the house that I haven't had the time to update the blog. Oops!

We collected our keys on 15th June and have been so busy checking for defects, looking for ids and checking out furniture shops etc!

All weekends have been dedicated to project #nadskaihome! It's been fun researching and I haven't had so much fun since the wedding!

I also think it helps us grow as a couple!

More updates soon!

It's funny how the view is slowly growing on me. C(hubby) was CRAZY over the view and I was like 'meh', neutral and can't be arsed about it.

Now? I can't help staring out all the time!

We were planning to move in like end this year say November or December.... Factoring time for defects (it's already July!), renovation (taking our time since 7 month is coming soon) and slowly furnishing our home.

But now, I can't wait! But hey... maybe November we'll be staring at this view everyday! Or maybe sian by the view by then. HAHAHA

More updates about #nadskaihome soon!

You've probably read about my blog posts about my upcoming BTO. Initially slated for completion in the 3rd quarter this year, we were so excited to find out that we would be collecting our keys tomorrow! (On a side note, everyone used to tell us that we would be able to collect our keys ONE YEAR before completion. BLUFF ONE!)

We'll be wiping our CPF tomorrow. **GROANS**

and also checking out our place tomorrow! We are not pantang where we'll have an auspicious date to 'open' the doors. I left it to Skai aka c(hubby) to decide on whatever he wanna do. e.g. play bowling with a pineapple or something like that.

I'll definitely be detailing on what to do after receiving the keys! Do check out my entry on that soon! Aside from that, I've also engaged professional services to check our defects of our BTO on this coming Saturday.

After reading all the news about the crazy amount of defects in HDBs, we thought that it is better to just engage the professional services. Better to be safe than sorry!

More updates coming soon!  And for those who were wondering... we haven't engaged a Contractor or an Interior Designer yet! More about that soon!

Can't wait to be homeowners tomorrow!!!!
