The Singapore Flyer: National Discoball

Oh yes Mister Minister, the multi-colors represent a creative multi-racial society.

Theoratically if we spin fast enough it will be white.

For the people behind the Singapore Flyer who are wondering 'where the hell did it go wrong?', please don't knockoff at 5pm as usual. Stay till the sun is out and take a good bloody look at that hideous discoball of epic proportions!

I shrink at the thought of my foreign friends giving me the look should we drive pass it.

Merry Christmas! With a Sick Twist...

Apologies for the lull in posts, have been away on my much needed R&R.

Came home, flipped through the papers and spotted gruesome stuff that will be met with the most displeasure by the owners of Viz@Holland. Here is the online version:

"A yet-to-be-identified body of a woman was found at a construction site along Queensway on Sunday. It was found at around 10.45am by a worker on the third storey of a block at the District 10 condominium development called Viz@Holland." - Channelnewsasia

While my heart goes out to the deseased, I am pretty sure this could be devestating to the owners of the Viz@Holland. I hope the culprit is caught and dealt with swiftly.

My questions are:

  • Will the contractor (Sim Lian) even be upfront with the owner of that particular unit or will the whole Condo be condemned (sorry if it sounds a little harsh)?

  • Will the owner be compensated, after all it was under the contractors charge that this happened?
While worksite accidents are not uncommon, this opens up a large can of worms on worksite accidents and the rare brutality. oh, and this condo is surely going into my Little Black Book.

Market Update: Sui Generis & Amber Residences

Apparently 60% of Amber Residences have been sold despite the end-year market slow down. Most of the buyers are local and these units were sold during a private preview on 18 November at an average price of $1650psf with some high floor unit being sold for more than $1800psf.

Now thats quite a change, previously I heard that some units had list prices of $2000psf+. $1800 is still pretty reasonable considering that some Condos that are about to go TOP in the area such as the Belvedere are commanding $1450-1750psf.

Speaking of which, the Belvedere is a pretty decent project. Take note that it lies on a slim strip of land, with a park on its right side. Most of its units have a seaview, but the best stacks are actually 1, 2 and 3 - with stack 2 and 3 being the only units with a bedroom seaview. The rest of the stacks might have issues with its view in future as it faces the Marina Bay area.

In other news, 16 of 23 units released at the 40-unit Sui Generis were sold through road shows in Indonesia and Hong Kong in the past two months with almost all buyers being foreigners. Prices were from $2300-$2580 psf.

Well thats a pretty good price for the Balmoral area. Take note that this is in the district 9 area.
