Cway was clear on both sides. Got a barber haircut at Perling area for a total of rm18 (1A2C). In sg sorry to say not enuf for 1A cos d avg cost is $10.

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    I just came back from JB after re-visiting the 6 developments I mentioned. HH is probably one of a few which has increased its price substantially across the entire spectrum. All current launches including Clusters, Condos, Super-Links, Semi Dees, Bungalows have increased in prices.

    And I am super delighted to know HH is currently selling the same unit type I purchased at about 42.5% higher than the price listed in my SPA signed just 6 months ago.

    I am very satisfied with a 6 months 40% paper gain, what more, the bumi units are probably not released yet, so another round of price increase is expected. And I thought this price is crazy, but after checking with similar units in other tamans (I shall not name), I found out that this price is comparable to the prices in other tamans. So it should be sustainable lah!

    Sorry for being such a bull. I am a dragon (Crystal Jie, in case you're still wondering) and I hope it will be a good year ahead for everyone!

    I shall review positively on the other developments I have viewed.

    First one we went to is Besteri Heights, So far I think less than 20 percent of international lots are still available, they have increased more than 100+k over the one year since they launched. If you are looking for convenience and reasonable price with good interior quality, I think this is very decent.

    Next we went to Nusa Duta, but probably because they have almost sold out the current phrases, they decided not to open on the eve of New Year. Went in to have a re-tour of the precinct and have seen many new home owners moved in with very extensive renovations. Some are very tasteful indeed. Too bad the sales unit wasn't open.

    Next we went to Setia Bukit Indah. Enquired about the new cluster precinct called Garden Villa, starting price should be around 888, 000 before discount, quite a tasteful exterior, but for those who have dealt with Setia you will know the quality. Also checked out Sky Loft, prices have remained the same, about 480-600 psf up for remaining units. High price due to higher floors left. But I also recalled they have not launched the bumi units, so probably will expect more price movements. Also quite a sell out for international units with more than 80% taken. In my opinion, I think the specs given (esp floor tiles) can be better to justify the price. What I like about this development is it's location next to commercial developments.

    Then we went to Nusa Idaman! overall as what many brothers and sisters have mentioned, this is a very good development. It has good quality and finishes, being located between Bukit Indah and Horizon Hills, it definitely has more room to move. Was confirmed that the 10k promotion has ended. There are still good units available up for grabs. There is a good discussion and review on this development, I can't agree more with brothers and sisters here on your views. If I am buying for own stay, I will consider this for its peaceful, natural setting, and I will also consider Nusa Duta for it's design, master plan and convenience.

    Lastly, we went to East Ledang (Impiana). Also one of the top picks for long term investments, being close to 2nd link, Educity and Medini. Definitely one to look at for those who have confidence in Nusajaya and is here for the long term. Price is at a premium compared to similar developments, but can be justified in long term. I would consider if I have holding power like many of the brothers and sisters here! Also got the chance to check out the under con Ujana, it definitely looks good after a good paint!

    Imagine if Singaporeans and Malaysians alike are allowed to withdraw their CPF monies to purchase properties in IM...woww....
    Is this going to be one of the significant joint announcement which LHL and Najib will be announcing soon??

    Hope this will happen in long run, but it's not quite possible to allow outflow of CPF monies now. Govt needs to cushion a possible property crash/softening locally.

    I do hope it's something on 3rd link, or some means to speed up clearing of customs for us. The causeways are the bottlenecks now.

    Thanks.
    They always have temporary driving rage during Iskandar Open at HH because it is a requirement. Also i remember someone asked about phone reception in HH, I was able to receive M1 service in Gateway, certain parts of the house.

    Give it to the ah Meng, don't fight even if you can beat him flat... Not worth it.

    In Singapore it is a different story. One Lao ah Meng honked at my car for being slow and at the traffic Junction, he lowered his window and stared and me. Immediately I opened my car door and charged directly at him.. This chao ah beng so scared and immediately drove off even it is red light.. Never see such a chao coward..

    There was just a wow factor in HH. It could be the golf course that makes me us feel so. The advantage of NI is the price about 20% cheaper.
    Today my wife said: She still prefers to retire in Singapore hahaha
    Because everything is so near. Over there we may have nice luxury greenery,low density housing. But after awhile she'll feel bored and would also like to walk out to buy some groceries.
    And she feels it is inconvenient to do that in Malaysia.

    We had a bad experience today in JUSCO.
    There was an Ahbeng Malaysian which took over our parking slot while I tried to reverse park my car.
    I went out and I asked him why he did so. He said, he has been watching the slot from far away. Yes, I said that means the whole carpark belong to u just by watching while our car was nearest to the slot.
    Anyway if I didn't bring my wife and son. I would probably whack him with my Rattan Stick which I bought in Melacca

    Good for you bro,...doing your homework.

    When i first bought a house in JB,..my initial plan was to have a weekend home partly so that my kids can have an spacious environment away from the evils of TV and internet. So i told myself just buy one landed at a ok location can liao and at close to the min RM500K+. Dont waste so much monies..just in case things doesnt work out. I dont see it as investing rather as an alternate location to play and retire.

    However over the last couple of months, i have visited multiple developments such as Educity, Puteri Harbour, Kota Iskandar etc and I realise my objective is slowing changing. Indeed one can read about all their grand plans on paper/internet/forum etc but the impact of what the Msians are planning and doing doesnt really hit you until you are walking the grounds, smelling the air and seeing it with your own two eyes.

    So i am seriously thinking of buying another property in JB to invest this time round....most likely to be a condo.

    cheers.

    2) LF - Black & White government bungalows around Mount Pleasant vicinity (oasis on its own!)
    3) Nusa Duta - Citylights and condos around Lavender area (near to amenities!)
    4) Nusa Idaman - Eunos, Paya Lebar (quite convenient, have mosque!)
    5) Nusa Sentral - Pasir Ris, Loyang (in the land of nowhere!)
    6) Bestari Heights - Bedok Court (large but old fashion!)
    7) Setia EcoGarden - ChuaChuKang
    8) Setia Tropika - condos around Bedok Reservoir
    9) east ledang - jurong west..( because equally near to tuas 2nd link ...Hee Hee..just joking only..)

    Don't flame me... just for fun !!

    It's okay la. I like their Internet broadband. If I need it, I can just pay daily rate or subscribe for a week. No other telco offers such flexibly in terms of Internet broadband

    After struck in the slow moving jam for 30 minutes, I saw a policeman and later more policemen around the bend full of gravel and stones. It seems that a motorbike had skidded.

    I saw the bike and alas as I was driving thru the snaking bends in turtle speed of about 5km/hour, I saw the dead motionless body still struck within the mangled bike. The head was crushed and the scene is terribly horrible. The policeman guarding the body looked as if he wanted to puke and faint with all the blood oozing over the ground. Three senior policemen and a few others were using measuring tape to conduct the investigation.

    A very bad moment to start my year. I hope all of you drive and ride carefully! Never speed. This is a windy bend and in front of the bend there are gravels which could make u lose control just like that.

    RIP

    it's very tiring, i think I've visited these other 7 developments on average more than 6-8 times. Been to more than 30 tamans. no kid. It's like a part time job.
