From the same person for East Ledang:
Also, we found out that almost none of the windows are straight and the rendering on the walls are quite soft. Well, actually a lot of things in the house are not straight (from door frames, main entrance, etc) !!!!!!
We thought we could just drill and screw on timber blinds, but the rendering cracked so we had to screw in a length of aluminium angle to reinforce the top of the window opening which is anchored deep into the wall and then attach the Venetian timber blinds clip to the aluminium angle. The benefit of this is straight edge, less screws required to be counter sunk into the wall and we can attach any window finishing to the aluminium.
The price is a real steal to some, compare to Singapore. I guess it's a relax n slower pace that attracted us to this place. ( but one must understand n take the slow pace n don't complain as this is part of the beauty.) the air are fresh, we wake up with birds greeting us and go to bed with starlights twinkling lullaby . The openess without unwelcome noises., of couse with yr own compound. We could choose to job around it, hold BBQ n hang around into wee hours without worrying about being inconsiderate neighbors, comes new year, some will set fireworks in their bungalows too. Most eat at Gelang Patah or usual place as all of u. For me, my friends n relatives that been to my place, long to go again n again, that's why my SIL decided to buy my next land n built. We have not been there for more than 9 months due to my child PSLE. Maintain part, most employ their in house cleaning services. ( just pass them yr house keys). Hope I have answer some of yr question.
[QUOTE=euphony;858107]sanur sis so you're using it as a weekend home for now?
I like it that your precinct has a theme to it. I think the showhouse was featured in an architecture&design mag![/QUOTE
Guess most of their showhouses featured in their mag., i do not have the chance like most of them here to b able to enjoy it as weekend home, for now it's more of holiday home. Cos I have kids to ferry here n there. Am officially the chauffeur.
What is your view about development around skudai where the Premium outlet is located ? Any good development spotted there ?

The taps, sinks, toilet bowls in my unit are real sub standard, even those in the HH show room are of poor quality.... However these are relatively inexpensive stuffs as compared to the location.. I don't plan to do more than 200K renovation since it is just a weekend house.. I plan to knock down a few walls, increase a few power points, raise a view platform, air cons.. change some grills, taps, toilets bowls sinks, kitchen cabinets, sliding doors (maybe) and some additional shelters.. hopefully I can keep it around 100 plus K..
As for investing in Iskandar, now it seems easy to invest in Iskandar Malaysia because everywhere seems good as long as you have money. The real challenge comes when we go into recession, then the pros will be differentiated from the novices.
Wow! Another skyscraper to add to the southern JB city skyline. JB is looking more and more like a metropolitian city that it aspires to be.:-

Acutally as long as u stay in bukit indah, layang, perling, nusa idaman area, u drive out from ur house @ about 8am, u will reach tuas working area before 8.45am, this is my experience of driving car into Singapore and work. If u r going to take bus like me, i took 7am bus at the road side of bukit indah (not the bus station), i will reach boonlay jurong point between 8.10am to 8.20am. So it is actually very convenient. For ppl who stay EL the place is still very quiet now nt much shops there yet unlike nusa duta, bestari heights, bukit indah, nusa idaman and horizon hills
