To add on to bro abugumgum's earlier message about MACS.
Bros, its a great time to do this. Its right outside Jusco near the Lavender cake shop, its very near to the supermarket portion of Jusco.
Just went to recce and brought the family to do it yesterday.
You just need to bring your passport and RM 30, they are open only up to 7pm unfortunately.
You need to be there personally though and they will scan both of your index (pointing) fingers.
You don't need photographs, S&P or even photocopies of VISA or fill up any form. They will scan
the photograph on your passport and use it for your MACS application.
They will do it for you. Just sit there, fill in your name and particulars and relax. Wait 10 minutes and you
As bro abugumgum said, for new registrants, they even have a lucky draw.
Crystal, i would highly recommend you doing this and bringing in a relative so that they can see things for themselves and with the convenience
of MACS, it might be easier for them to come in.

Indpendent chartered building surveyors found 32 defects in the pool, lift lobbies, residential units and basement carpark. Rotting wooden plank in the pool deck area (above), and water seepage in the basement carpark. -- ST PHOTOS: LIM WUI LIANG

Home owners of The Seaview, an upmarket condo in the east, are seeking $14 million for defects that have allegedly plagued the estate since 2008.
In what is believed to be one of the largest amounts that a developer here is being sued for, the residents of the 546-unit project in Amber Road are suing Mer Vue Developments, a subsidiary of listed Wheelock Properties.
Also named in the suit - filed by the condo's management corporation (MC) - are main contractor Tiong Aik Construction, RSP Architects Planners & Engineers and engineering firm Squire Mech.
Even with properties worth over millions Singapore Dollar, what happen????
Actually in some parts of the greens, it is possible to accidentally hit one into some houses (actually only 2 houses in total really affected). They do have insurance coverage but one poor Indian chap has highlighted his plight. I have tried to talk to them on his behalf and they are considering more trees but not nettings. I have also asked that they change the direction slightly so that the chances of accidentally hitting one into others houses are much lesser.
Living in the midst of golf courses is good but not if you are literally inside a golf course. One lady from overseas with a similar type property back in her country told me, whenever she was there, she would wait until the end of the week before making the familar call to the management team and they will just come by to replace almost every weekly. I asked if that bothered her, her amusing reply, i could make a living selling used golf balls actually.
To those brainwashed by the guys up there, they can only see perfection. Only "Hear" and "see" the good stuff. Nothing else matters.
The list sounds serious though. Especially water seepage in basement carparks? Only good if your car can do this:

Be careful about Ipoh properties. Ipoh was formerly a mining town and there are a lot of deep craters left behind which now becomes a lake. There have been cases of land caving in.
Bro Investor, to each his own is what i would say to people who continually scoff at others.
Once i am more "concrete" on things in NZ, it will be time to start living in NZ thread. This is
apparently less scoff worthy to certain "talk big but never any action type of people"
Just ignore them, they have their own lives to lead, you have yours. How they think if their
business as we can never control their thought process. Different people different logic.
By the way, if you are keen on HH houses, you should consider buying them from HorizonHills,
the way he/she disses the place, you might be able to get from he/she cheaply.
Latest news.. One of the lift in a Kakit Bukit building had a free fall and crashed to the ground, damaged a few vehicles and 2 persons were in the life when it drop..
One of my learned friend working in HDB commented the quality of construction in Singapore has degraded a lot in HDB as well as private condo.. It was all due to some foreigned foremen who are more relaxed and inexperienced workers who were employed just because they are cheap and most came without experience.. Also he said to be careful about materials used by china contractor..same copper piping that looked beautiful has different lifespan as those from Australia.. China copper piping are not used by most construction companies but no one know if it will be used by the lowest bidders.. I am surprised to know china copper pipe are so easy to get corroded.. Poor materials could be used in malaysia, but it doesn't mean it won't be used in Singapore.. As these companies all work for the profit as well as shareholders interests..
Bro Lemans, sometimes its a thankless job but someone has to do it. Its like this thread actually, i have a feeling that quite a few here are are from the 39.9 percent or the rare guys who think differently from the 60.1%.
I also think standard of Spore condo dropping, new condos are so small, high density, very little common space and car parks are multi storeys instead of basement car park. I heard that is becos basement car park costs more to build.
Found the news..
If spend S$1M and S$1M ringget also get similar quality, might as well get a plain house and do all renovation yourself..
SINGAPORE: A free-falling loading lift at a Kaki Bukit building caused a ceiling to crash onto cars in the basement car park, according to an eyewitness who spoke to Channel NewsAsia.
A scene of devastation greeted the eyewitness, who only wanted to be known as Linda, when she went to the car park at about 6pm on Thursday.
She was told by the building's security staff that a lift had fallen a few floors causing extensive damage in the basement car park.
Channel NewsAsia understands there were two people inside the lift, but they have been rescued.
Police said a member of the public called about the incident at Block 1 Kaki Bukit Avenue 3, saying the lift had malfunctioned.
No one was injured in the accident."
