    I personally feel BDO is value for money, if u r someone into something that is simple but yet with loads of space at affordable prices, the BDO is a pretty decent place..

    Just my 2 cents after exploring jb for sometime...my 1st choice was HH but the price really to high for me..

    Bro, the stretch opposite the one2eat cafe is coming up very fast. The shophouses are already at the second storey I think ... That's where the water theme park will be too... Think it's supposed to open this year, right?

    Actually that area isnt too bad, we were there before the golf cse got de.veloped, abit run down. Its ok now, will be better soon as a year plus ago, they showed us some information so there will be lots of new development. Most of the new shophouses that are yet to be built are already taken up. That stretch opposite the One2eat cafe

    Hello. Welcome.

    It helps-
    1) northern
    Bandar dato' onn
    Adda heights
    Kempas
    Setia tropika

    2) eastern
    Permas jaya - including straits view residence, elita etc
    Bayu puteri
    Senibong cove
    Sierra perdana
    Bandar seri alam

    3) southern
    Polo park
    Southkey - in the future

    4) taman molek, tebrau, Austin

    It's a spillover effect. It benefits quite a lot of areas, one way or another

    With the new opening of EDL, which particular taman(s) does/do it help? I'm currently looking around, looks like everywhere had increased quite tremendously from last year. Everywhere north of Bukit Indah area (further away from Tuas) are asking like beyond RM5/600k range, which makes Nusa Idaman reasonable at RM450,888? But security wise... not sure, provided the unpleasant precinct 6's incident.

    Agree. BDO is still valued for money. I like their gardenia and topaz (my favorite)

    The only thing I could not convince myself was the pylons. I know it's some distance away, but I just couldn't get over it. It should have very minimal effects on adults, but I will want the best for my kids, so I wouldn't chance it for such risks (some evidences showed that it had much greater effects on kids).

    Thanks DREAMorACTION - both the welcome and information you're like a walking google map really improves a great deal for the nothern/estern residences.

    By the way, do you know if driving from Mont Callista, we can't actually drive straight to Second Link Highway from Skudai - Pontian Highway right? We have to drive down Skudai - Pontian Highway -> Jalan Skudai -> Persiaran Perling and then into Second Link Highway, right? Thanks.

    Hmm, probably you mean the ones slightly further in as the ones directly opposite (where the Austinhills sign was) will be filled with shophouses as well.
    Lots of developments but opening still to be determined as they are moving so fast these days.

    I noticed the pylons too....but as u said it's still some distance away. I am ok with it though!
    Their Topaz is very nice and huge too - I just got news from thier FB community that some units (if not all) were taken up by the so called close relatives of the Johor Royalty! Not sure how true is this...but it should be good news for the ppl staying there as security might be tighten just because of the Royalty connection...hahaha

    In singapore some of the most expensive condo are facing MRT stations.. MRT station are like a big substation.. Again living in condo, HDB sure have heavy power electrical cables running on top or below.. Have any one measure the interference compared this with pylon? I am wondering the logic
    Of such feng shui.. If it is true, where can we live in singapore?

    The power cables should be underground I would think. It's practically impossible to have the substation on top of high-rise residential.

    1) costly
    2) maintenance/access issue by SP

    It is likely that SP will connect their high tension cables underground to a substation on low ground to step down the power. These cables aren't exactly cheap and I can't imagine these cables being pulled all the way to the top of the roof.

    Don't know about the logic. But underground cables is somehow "perceived" safer, or perhaps I should say - nobody cares because they are out of sight, out of mind ....

    Don't say that. Im a latecomer and just sharing the very little info I collated.

    From skudai highway, yeah, u need to take the flyover up thru perling toll to connect to second link. If u want to avoid the perling toll, exit via bukit indah then. Perling toll is about RM2.30 I think

    Yah. Good if u don't mind. To each his own, as bro wuqi always say

    There are definitely some decently rich residents there. Behind the show house of the topaz, some impressive Reno and security features are seen all around. Precinct 10 had some issues with the management in terms of the security earlier on, but believe that all have been resolved now.

    Which one in BDO have u bought?

    Where its internal, there will be shielding, etc done to it or it will be sufficiently deep underground. Its also something that one cannot easily escape from. Whereas for pylons, they interfere with the chi of a natural environment (according to fengshui)

    Observed that in land scarce Singapore, most of the transformers are still housed in a separate building, i still haven't seen large power processing in a HDB building.

    I have also seen terrace houses here where the power for the whole role comes from a electrical pole which has thick power cables located right outside the front porch of the house. So the 2nd floor masterbedroom (facing car porch), one cannot do up a balcony due to safety concerns.

    Very difficult to be completely away from EMF, etc though, some things just to be mindful and to use as a preference (to avoid), not as an absolute measure.
