Dawson Sky Terence Blk 92 Completing soon~

Finally there are some good news from our Blk 92 neighbours. They had received first hand updates that their block will be completing soon by Feb 2015. They would be the first to get the keys!!!! I guess mine will be around march or april if they could speed up. I just hope it can really be done asap.  I doubt and give up hoping that it will be ready by my wedding as the speed is really slow.


Let's see some of the updates from my neighbour. From the photos the exterior really WOW. I hope it doesn't also WOW (so small) internally  :x

Dawson Sky Terrace - 1 more crane to go !!!!


I haven been updating any news about my BTO - Dawson Sky Terrace for quite awhile. The reason being is there is nothing great news about it !!!! Its still a long wait. I really can't wait for it to be ready soon but my wallet may think otherwise.

Gotten some great photos from the neighbours updates, its really cool that the neighbours share their photos and update whenever they pass by. I love their super pro, sharp and good photos!


So from the pictures and updates by neighbour, we are left with 1 crane !!! Hip Hip Hurrayyy!!!!

In future my look-down height will about the same as this !!!!  scary....  So i command my HTB to take charge of washing the windows! hee hee hee

ST Blk 92 & 89 with a snappy of our neighbouring project Sky Ville (SV)

Partial Blk 93, Blk 90 and Blk 91, what a beautiful view on the right!

So they are going to start some planting real soon on our bridges ! The bridge is only partly complete. The entrance should have some shelter i think.

Peeping into the loft units! I think they are lying the floor tiles.



Yes they are fixing the tiles!!

Official completion by HDB is Q1, 2015. I really hope it will be complete 1Q faster!

Hope my unit number open 4D zun zun too and contribute it to my reno!!!! Huat ah!!!!!

Nov 2013 BTO Review: Hougang Meadow (3room)

Dear Sther,

I hope I am not too late to reply on your request. I am really sorry for it.
Reviews for 3rooms is as below :

1st choice - #1030, #1032
My personal preference would stay and view into my estate hence it overview the roof garden of the carpark, however do remember to take at least level 9 and above else you will be facing the carpark.

2nd choice - #1090, #1088
Although no much view but at least it wouldn't be facing to close to the exist blocks.

3rd choice -#1016, 1018
If you don't mind to face the busy road , this could be a option as you will not need to walk far to the busstop or malls.

Hope my simple review are useful to you. =D

Nov 2013 BTO Review: Hougang Meadow

About Hougang Meadow


Hougang Meadow is located along Upper Serangoon Road and near the Hougang town centre. This 16- to 18-storey high development consists of six residential blocks with 732 units of Studio Apartments as well as 3- and 4-room Standard Flats.
The name “Hougang Meadow” reflects the series of landscaped areas that will be created within the development.

Hougang Meadow offers various garden spaces for all to enjoy. You can choose to take a stroll through these spaces, starting from the open green areas at the ground level. From here, you can venture up to the landscaped deck above the single storey the car park. Equipped with a children’s playground as well as adult and elderly fitness stations, this is an ideal venue where the entire family can exercise and have fun together. A precinct pavilion is also located here.
The rooftop garden atop the multi-storey car park is another landscaped space where you could go to for outdoor relaxation. Those with green fingers can also enjoy gardening at the community garden located here.
For added convenience, a minimart and a cafe will be provided within Hougang Meadow. A Senior Care Centre will also be set up within the development to provide day care, dementia day care, day rehabilitation services, basic nursing services and other social services. Seniors can also visit the Senior Activity Centre to make friends and engage in regular social activities.






This is another project launch this month which is nearer to MRT. Although there are no new parks in this BTO they can still enjoy the existing one at the south of the BTO. What I like for this BTO is that there are minimarts, child care center and even cafe within the neighbourhood. It will be more convenient.. I shall review 4room units, if you interested for other units, do drop me a comments. Thanks. What I dislike is that , upper serangoon road is a super busy road. Oh well, where in singapore is not a busy road anyway ? .. heheh^^

4room units
1st choice: #1002, #1004, #1022, #1024 - Although these units are facing the road, it is just a small quiet road and it is nearer to the main road / busstop. These units will have the best view if you take at least lvl 5-6 above and you will be overviewing the exising private terrace housing.

2nd choice: #1086, # 1086, #1072, #1074 - in terms of longer view. bottom south units of these BTO fits it well.As long as you get at least 4 level and above, you will over view the "playground" above the 1 level carpark building.

Nov BTO 2013 review : Admiralty Grove Woodlands

About Admiralty Grove


Located in Woodlands town, Admiralty Grove is bounded by Woodlands Avenue 6 and Drive 62. You can take your pick from the 993 units of 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-room Standard Flats housed in seven 13-storey residential blocks. One other residential block within this development is set aside for rental housing.
The name “Admiralty Grove” takes inspiration from the lush landscaping within the development.
Admiralty Grove offers various landscaped spaces where you can relax and unwind after a hectic day at work. You can also choose to mingle and chat with your family and friends at the precinct pavilions.
Alternatively, you can enjoy a myriad of fun activities amid the open spaces such as working out at the adult and elderly fitness stations, playing with the children at the playgrounds, or simply enjoying a game or two with your neighbours and friends at the hard court.
In addition, the roof gardens adorning the development’s two multi-storey car parks will serve as additional venues for interaction and relaxation. Those who enjoy gardening will appreciate the community gardens located here.
You will also find daily conveniences within easy reach. Admiralty Grove will have its own supermarket, eating house and shops, so you can shop and enjoy a meal close to home. A Residents’ Committee Centre will also be located within the development.

 
 
 


This project is one of the BTO location near to an MRT for Novemeber BTO.  It is about 1 to 2 bus stop away. This BTO is pretty low flat with only 13 floors but it has 7 blocks. Look into the siteplan and realised there are many 2room flats. They had increase the number of 2 rooms flats to cater for 35y/o above applicants. I hope there will not be too many leftovers. Because not many elderly is able to afford a 2 room flat and how many above 35y/o applicants are there? Its trending that many getting house in this cater but really worth ?

Anyway below are my reviews for Admiralty Grove in my own opinions and perceptions. There is no any particular bad unit, just depends which do you prefer.
 
Thank you.
 
4 Room units.
1st choice: #14, #16, #30 , #32 - get at least lvl 7 and above so you get to overview the school and get the longest "unblock" view. Although it is near the road side however there some space about 30-40 meter between the block and the road.
 
2nd choice: #90 - get at least lvl 8 and above to over view the carpark. you might not want to face the cars everydays???
 
3rd choice: #709, #711 - nearest to MRT if you don't mind your unit locate infront of a junction road  (fengshui matters) and gets some afternoon sun.
 
5 Room units
All units faces into the neighbourhood. Almost all units don't get much afternoon sun so lastly which do you view do you personally perfer?
 
1st choice: #18, #20 , #26, #28 - I like units that look into the neighbour, overview the playgrounds instead of facing the roads.
 
2nd choice: #705, #723, #721, #02, #04 - choice for this was nearer to MRT. #707 might get some afternoon sun esp at the master bed room hence I gave that out. for # 705 it would better to get more than lvl 8 due to the carpark is build for 6 lvl.


Hope my humble review is useful to you. Thanks for reading.
