    Hi Truly Asia,

    Thank you for replying, no issue.:D mine is facing the HH Golf Course, as claim by the sales, hopefully so. :rolleyes: Bought it because I prefer a little more "secluded" than from the shopping area. I do not really like crowded places, and as I bought this for weekend getaway from Sin, so like it slow and less stressful.
    Wow....Yours facing the pool? Kool:cool: But have been quite often there to check on the development, a little slow I must say. But have to be patient though. :)
    Is there any "tips" to share? Like good place to dine, shop, car accesories, seaside for fishing( I mean nearest from there) etc.......? Thanks again for replying, appreciate it.

    Hi Truly Asia,

    I just re-read your reply posting, you mentioned "other highrise projects in the vicinity are completed". are you refering to the empty plot of land just in front of Horizon Residence? OR is others that you are refering to? Can share? Just keen to know more about the surroundings since intending to be there in a couple of years. Sorry, was too Kan Cheong to reply and did not read your reply post properly initially. Thanks..:)

    Was in JB yesterday, smooth traffic to JB in the morning. But, on my way back to Sing, there was heavy jam at Singapore Custom.

    visited Bestari Height, some progress very quick, some are still far behind. Whoever want to visit BH, now you will be stopped by security at the bridge. You will be asked the reason/purpose of visit, then you will be asked to sign the visitor book.

    Went to Giant, and not many people around. Seems everyone is still in holiday mood. also in Tesco, so few people.

    Dear Friends,

    I am Singaporean, 50-yr old male.

    I wish to rent a room in JB, preferably nearby first Causeway, maybe Taman Sentosa.
    Because of working and travelling to/from Singapore.

    No problem if co-share an existing room.

    I just need a bed to sleep, thats all. No cooking. No laundry. No visitors.
    I do not smoke.

    Anyone who has a spare room including co-share basis, kindly send Email to me at "[email protected]".

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Living in JB: PROBLEMS WITH MONIER SOLAR WATER HEATER

    Well... don't use MONIER!

    We decided to use a solar water heater on our bungalow roof in the Hills. We selected MONIER who at the time seemed knowledgable and helpful.

    However, the installation has been a nightmare! They installed the solar panel in the SHADE.. NO SUN! We have been unsuccessful in getting them to fix it properly. We've been heating our water using the backup electrical heater in the solar tank... we cannot get hot water using solar energy because the solar pannels are shaded!

    I've heard that a number of people at Horizon Hills have had the same problem with MONIER.... we are suing them to get it fixed.Anyone else having these problems with MONIER want to join with us?

    Yes. This one very important.

    Especially if one were to stay in Spore with no car. The thought of going to and fro, to "spot check" the contractors, really a hassle if we are working fulltime here in tiny red dot.

    Maxpark, I believe you are still in your prime years and your work contributions may still be valuable to Singapore. Trust me, unless you are very rich, otherwise, once you've reached your twilight years and you happen to be out of job, you will experience what those of the same age in Singapore are presently encountering. Thereafter, I believe you'll have a different opinion as of now.

    To get a MPR is truly difficult, but not impossible. When I was applying for my MM2H, I had also inquired to the officer and he told me that it is still worth a try, especially if one has no bad conduct recorded and the length of stay is in excess of 10 years, there is still a possible chance of success.

    Bro Wuqi: On a side note, how come the "Living in JB2" thread is now locked/closed? :*:
