my saturday~

inspecting his new 'toy'...

Aidan's grandpa bought him a new bike :) The li bugger was so excited with his present and couldn't wait to get on it. I think one reason why dad did so was 'coz Aidan has been 'playing' with the neighbour's kid bike every time he's at the corridor. He'll always run to the bike, fidget with it and give the bicycle bell a ring or two.. Dad was probably afraid that he'll end up damaging that bike and so he got the boy one of his own..

Unfortunately, Aidan still persist on playing with the neighbour's bike. Guess the grass is always greener on the other side~

waiting for daddy to adjust the seat..


showing it off to chloe~

Sentosa on Saturday~
Dropped by Sentosa for lunch & to let the kids run around..

the kids having fun :)

with their mommies..

showing off our new sunnies bought at a shop@Sentosa..
Aidan's was only $5.90 and mine was $19 :D~

Walking with his daddy..

we saw these pigs being roasted..alamak! poor piggies..


Does anyone have a good house-agent/broker to recommend? We're seriously thinking of getting a new place, a bigger apartment so that we'll have more space, especially for the not-so-little one to run around. Have decided on looking at older apts since all the build-up areas in new developments are so tiny and priced so high. We've decided to look to go 'west' since we so badly want to avoid the CTE..The older apartments there are usually quite spacious.. about 1700 sq ft and above and mostly freehold. Have been looking at apartments along Telok Blangah, Pasir Panjang and Novena area..

So now, we need to see how much our present place can fetch.. Am staying in an a 5 year old Exec Condo in Hougang. I think we've done up the place rather nicely so hopefully, potential buyers will appreciate it :)
My cousie Terry sent these to me via email..Funny! We should have such signages in Singapore..


Will be going to ECP later..

There's an Elvis meetup session where 20 Elvis fans will be crooning classic Elvis songs by the beach. It is at Carpark D1 from 6-8pm..Should be fun to go watch them..Hope the weather holds up.We'll probably go earlier.. I'm gonnal rollerblade and hubby will bike with Aidan..:)

Nice area, lotsa freehold property, and damn good price. ;)

In fact, the apt opposite mine is still empty! But only 1500 sq feet I think.

Aug. 21st, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
yeah..i like that area..very near good schools too. Just need to find the right house with right price :P
Aug. 21st, 2005 06:15 am (UTC)
Well you can try my area :) My condo here is pretty old but very spacious... My current house is 1800+ sq ft... And it's very quiet and has a lot of green areas to play in...
Aug. 21st, 2005 08:29 am (UTC)

Maplewoods is nice..but out of our budget. I don't think we wanna spend more than 1 mil..I don't really like Waterside's layout. The living/dining area is huge but the rooms are small..

Pandan Valley is leasehold right?
Aug. 21st, 2005 06:59 am (UTC)
I think near Dover, Mt Sinai, there are a number of FH apartments which are good size like Beaverton Court, Fontana, Ridgewood. Actually I like Glentree, quite a new project where there is a mix of condo housing and terrace in the development. Apartment in Novena is not cheap unless you don't mind the really old ones.

To gadge the price, you can go to the URA website http://www.ura.gov.sg/
Aug. 21st, 2005 08:27 am (UTC)
Will check ard that area tho im sure it's gonna b q ex!
We saw some places at Novena..the smaller/older landed properties..not too ex. Some were goin for abt 700-800k for abt 1500 sq ft..

I visited my mom's colleague's apt in Pasir Panjang recently and it was lovely. 3000 sq ft, freehold, very nice and quiet area - 1.5million. The development is called Islandview. I'd live there if we could afford it! :P

Aug. 21st, 2005 08:28 am (UTC)
fwah 3000 sft is huge..issit a penthouse? Our budget is less than 1 mii lah.dun have that much dough :P But would be nice to live in such a big space eh!

Wah.... Aidan chao sai ah....

One of our friend got a nice old apt in Killiney road. He paid $1.4mil for a 2000sq ft. I thought it was really quite a good investment.

Another of our friend bought Far horizon in YCK, 2000sq ft too for just $500K. I thought it was darn good deal.
Aug. 21st, 2005 04:47 pm (UTC)
Far Horizon is an old devt..abt 23 years old..and leasehold property. So 500k is abt right.

Aptments in Orchard area damn ex leh but yeah, 1.4mil for a 2000 sf ft is quite cheap. Actually, there are quite a few nice devts in River Valley area eg. Yong An Park that has very spacious aptments but all out of our budget..(over a mil :P).

Aidan never chao sai lah..Chloe is his jiejie. Since both our families have decided to stop at 1, we decided that they can adopt each other!

Hmmm...do i see a budding biker in the making? Boys and their wheels..heh
and do i see a surfer mommy in that rip curl tank...what a lucky boy
Aug. 21st, 2005 04:40 pm (UTC)
yeah..boys and their wheels and toys! Doesnt change much even when they grow up :)

Heh..wearing a rip curl tee does not equal to a surfer mommy :P

how's ur hunt so far? seen any nice place?

Loyang is a tad far for us..and we arent used to the east. That's why we've decide to either try for somewhere central or west. But 550k for 1900 sq ft is huge..it aint f/h right?

I don't think we're lookng at Upper Bukit Timah area though..Regent is there right?

hahaha..man, u sound like u wanna have a 'tu-di'! He loves his bike lah but at the moment, he still doesnt know how to peddle forward well. He'll go forward and that start peddling backwards..gotta take a while to get used to it. :)
Aug. 21st, 2005 02:43 pm (UTC)
Aidan looks cool with the glasses. With the bib lagi cute.
Aug. 21st, 2005 04:36 pm (UTC)
alamak..he so old liao still gotta wear bib..so baby leh!
Oakley's too ex lah so we buy cheapo sunnies :P
Aug. 21st, 2005 02:53 pm (UTC)
Come to Hazel Park! :) Or at least come take a look, the kid will love it!
Aug. 21st, 2005 04:39 pm (UTC)
i've been to Hazel Park a few times :) Very nice..esp the landscaping & the pool area! But don't think we'll be considering Upper Bukit Timah area though.

Maybe they are trying to tell you that they now need helmets ?

The bike is rather cool. Your FIL got taste.

Quick move to the west side !!
Aug. 21st, 2005 04:35 pm (UTC)
haha I was thinking the same. There's a little boy in our building who's not quite 3 and he was riding around on a bike+training wheels the other day (or attempting to). He wasn't wearing and helmet and looked like he was going to crash any second and nobody was paying attention. I had to leave before I stuck my nose in their business. *sigh*

we have been apt hunting too, fm landed to condo to hdb but all east side. Jus in case you're interested, we quite like The Trumps at Kembangan. $700+ for 1300+ sq ft and its jus opp Kembagan Mrt. Its 99-yr leasehold though.
Aug. 22nd, 2005 02:29 pm (UTC)
East has lotsa nice developments.
Trumps is quite nice..but for a 99 year leasehold, it's considered expensive. What abt the other condo just further up from Trumps..cant remember the name but it's a small devt..and it's freehold!
