  4. u too, let me know if you run out of Mask
  5. Hello, I am trying to decide between two apartments, A or B... Both are 2-story loft apartments built in 1985. I've tried to understand the info you have provided but am not sure which unit has "better" feng shui. I would greatly appreciate your assist! => A is 500 sq ft with it's own entrance (townhouse style), no one above or below but does share the SE wall with neighbors. There is a wooden staircase with 13 steps and back risers that shares a landing with the front door, but the front door is perpendicular to the stairs and there is a smaller entry 'mudroom' on an angle (the stairs do not face directly to doorway). All is made from wood, hardwood flooring and overall somewhat dark. The staircase is on the SE side wall away from the center of the apartment. It ends on the 2nd floor landing leading right into the tiny bedroom space (only a full bed fits). => B is 600 sq ft. and is located on the top floor of an apartment building with 50 units. It is a corner rental and only share on living room wall. There is a spiral staircase situated off center (not quite in the middle of the apartment) between the living and dining rooms, there are windows opposite the staircase on the north side and the stairs end away from the front door toward the NW, they are also clockwise. It is black metal with carpeted risers that are open in the back. The staircase ends on the 2nd floor into a little space that curves into the carpeted bedroom area. The apartment has fake wood flooring, is much sunnier than A. Your thoughts as to which rental has better feng shui? I am a wood snake. Kua 7. Please see photos (A first 3 photos all wood, then B with black spiral staircase) Thank you kindly in advance
  6. Last week
  7. Not a resident. This is not from 100 Palms. Photo taken around two or more years ago at another development.
  8. No need for a person's birth date for roof-tile selection. A photo tells a thousand words! In I-ching water (blue) above one’s head implies difficulties.
  9. Hi Cecil! I was advised to change the color of my roof for the same reason that you stated because currently it is blue. I was born on March 3, 1976. Can you kindly suggest a roof color that would be favorable for me pls. Thank you in advance!
  10. Case Study: If you really need to sent through us an email via your hotmail / live / outlook account, please include your WhatsApp also. Thank You. I am more worried about hotmail. As a few of my mails, please check your spam. Not too scared of office.. office.. is more of a privacy issue Have just sent a total of five emails. thank Client: It really went to junk. I move them to inbox Ya, hotmail e-mail filtering is one of the worst I have seen. Always have this issue. That's why usually nowadays when I see the order from hotmail, I usually will whatsapp/sms them just to double check. FYI, hotmail.com/live.com/outlook.com are the same hosted by hotmail server.
  11. What could be worse! Then this? To be stuck in a west facing home in the equator. Don’t need to open windows? Given that windows can still use a uv-protected tint... Experienced buyers even if they are west group.. may even give that house a miss.
  12. Post from tan suee chieh ex ntuc income ceo who is an actuarist (calculates risks of people dying or getting sick to calculate premiums to charge for insurance) its long but v sensible esp when it tells u the odds of dying from normal old age is higher than from the virus.... COVID-19 – A psychological and an actuarial approach. There is a lot of fear of COVID-19 coronavirus. Largely, it is the fear of unknown, as this virus is new. As Gandhi said, “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but, it is fear.” As a trained psychologist and an actuary, and a student of crowd dynamics, I would like to bring a sense of perspective, different contexts and rationality into the discussion on COVID-19 to dispel fear. As of 15 February, we have 1527 number of deaths in the last three months arising from 67,000 infections (99 % from China). These numbers are certain to rise to tens and maybe hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of infections. So when you hear about more deaths, you should not be alarmed. This is how pandemics work. For me, the increase in numbers were not particularly alarming, as they look like arithmetic progressions rather than geometric progressions. So we do not have to be paralysed by fear of these statistics. We can be rational, objective and calm in our our response because 1. In 2009, the H1N1 swine flu which emanated in USA caused 360,000 deaths (range 150,000 -575,000) in the first year – CDC/Lancet. And 762 million infections in the first year. (Science Alert). The fatality rate was 0.1 %. Were you panicking then? 2. Do you know according CDC (Center of Disease Control – USA) about 40,000 people die from seasonal flus worldwide monthly? Do you worry about dying from seasonal flus? 3. Do you know that according to WHO (World Health Organisation, a United Nations organization) on a worldwide basis, • 65,000 die from HIV monthly • 112,000 die from car accidents monthly • 130,000 die from diabetes monthly, and an additional 185,000 die from high blood glucose monthly • 250,000 die from alcoholism monthly • 600,000 die from smoking monthly • 1.5 m from heart disease monthly Also, according to John Hopkins University, 20,000 die monthly from from Iatrogenic causes (medical errors) in USA alone! Don’t you think you should worry more about the above causes of death, which are more threatening to you than COVID-19 and which you have a better control of? Don’t you think it’s better and more productive to lose weight, have a balanced diet, exercise, drive safely, sleep well and do not imbibe too much alcohol than to worry about COVID-19 inappropriately? But of course, I am not asking you to be reckless. I ask you to be responsible and do your part! See the MOH website. https://www.moh.gov.sg/images/librariesprovider5/default-album/moh5m_english.tmb-medium.jpg?sfvrsn=762d32d8_1 https://www.moh.gov.sg/images/librariesprovider5/wuhan-coronavirus/eng-jpg.tmb-medium.jpg?sfvrsn=396258d8_1 4. Current estimates of fatality rate of CPVID-19 is 1.5% to 2.5% but some scientists believe that eventually this rate will come closer to the swine flu of 0.1%. And PM Lee Hsien Loong implied that as well. Discovery of vaccines will of course reduce the rate to close to zero. And preliminary data suggest those who die are of vulnerable groups – those who are older and those who are already sick. For comparison, mortality rates of Singaporeans Age 50-54 0.376% Age 55-59 0.619% Age 60-64 1.318% This mean if you are infected with nCOV-19, your chance of dying from it is quite close to a Singaporean person age 63 dying at the age of 63 of all causes. Does a 63-year-old man going around worrying he will die that year? Please understand this. You have to get infected first. Your probability to get infected is very very low, and you can reduce this further. I will write in a separate posting on how you can reduce the rate of infection. Lastly, if you do get infected, I can recommend things you can do to strengthen your immune system. Sleep and intermittent fasting. And, l will write on this separately later as well! One of the philosophers I admire is Bertrand Russell. He said “Fear is the main source of superstition... Toj conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” If you agree with my sentiments, please share my posting.

  14. Many considerate developers provide sound proofing baffle boards at each of the balcony to help further reduce Decibels of sound. Hope that MCL provides these for road facing units. They should. Actually it does help! Extract from one of my past forum posts... Do check if something similar to above is provided for you? Or several owners write in to get MCL to provide this as a goodwill gesture. Recently PARC Riveria, The Clementi Canopy and even units facing MRT tracks at The Visionaire..were provided with this...
  15. Generally the road noise at 16 floor is bearable. I will be more concerned at 4th to 8th storeys high. Parc Esta construction is extremely neat, systematic and orderly. Most importantly every other week I pass by there for marketing or Marine Terrace Market.. the various blocks are moving up at breakneck pace. I used to own an MCL unit 20 years ago. Quality is good. Only thing is no choice had to exit 99yrs... Actually the recent PARC Riveria is minimalist.. Long term good for the pocket. Once a unit reach 13 or more years, the concealed water heather, the air-con decides to strike-out. LOL Sinking fund needs more $$$. My home today is just a stone throw away in Katong...
  16. Thanks for the inputs, I was considering stack 27 and stack 22 of Blk 904 (both Changi road facing as I enjoy the view), stack 27 was a v high floor while stack 22 was a 5th floor below unit at similar cost, I opted for the higher floor one. i actually went to the nearby HDB block and I thought that on 16 floor the road noise is minimal. hope it makes a difference to negate the road noise too! Would probably engage ur service when the time comes to get keys
  17. Case Study: Two warning notices on the improper use of the Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System PWCS AT THE NEW HDB Tampines Greenweave
