    You have your reasons and others have their reasons for your choice. Thanks for sharing. There is no right and no wrong. This is my point. Cheers.

    Phan :
    @Stocks
    If tenants don’t pay up, halau them out. You are lucky if they follow your instruction immediately. Most cases, you will loose a few months rental from them. And I agree with you, blue chip stocks sometimes are better. Or maybe just keep your money in the bank. Or diversify your investment. It all depends on one’s appetite and analysis. No right, no wrong.

    That’s why need property agents to collect rent, like in Australia and the US.

    Although Tamarind is not the best choice amongst all, but just between Alila2 vs Tamarind, surely Tamarind is better. I personally wouldn’t buy Hunza anymore, considering what happened to the big and small bosses in the MACC case. Same goes to Infinity condo, which Hunza developed 6-7 years ago, in which case the land that condo is sitting on is actually “stolen land” from a Thai family. Plus the landslide that killed 11 people which happened last week.

    What happened to the condo after the land ownership was discovered?

    Anyone know the current status of construction of Tamarind and TNB?

    October 27th, 2017 at 11:08 | #12

    Alila2 is a different class compared to our project. A unit with 1900sf cost around 2.3m though comes with furnished. Great location with beautiful surroundings but the recent massive landslides is of concerned. I think this project caters more for foreigners probably due to our low ringgit.

    @Png

    This project is progressing fast and by year end should reach the top floor. Words have been spreading that purchasers should be able to collect their keys by end of next year 2018. Exciting times are coming soon as I’m sure everyone will be eager to view the completed condo after waited for 3 years.

    Another interesting point to highlight is that you won’t be hearing much of those hacking & knocking noise when owners starts to renovate their unit as Tamarind comes with semi-furnished. Water heaters plus 4 air-cons comes with this package. To save cost you probably needs to install ceiling fans, lighting, wardrobe and some little extras will do.

    I like the displayed wardrobes at the show unit. If we can order in bulks probably may get some discount but not sure whether Ikea accepts our order. Ikea expected to be completed in early 2019, so the timing is just right.

    Don’t think ikea gives discount, but will probably furnish fully from there. Hope timing is good, thanks!

    Basically, I’m planning to budget use RM50k for renovation and furnitures. I’m not going to do plaster ceiling as I am going to install trade light like the show room. Build in wardrobes master 6ft, the other 2 bedrooms 4ft. Total 14 ft, 1 ft is around RM400. So total would be RM7000 for 3 wardrobe. Lightings, Fan and Grill is around RM3000. Wet kitchen at yard is optional. I’m still considering… shall I? Curtains price depends on quality. The rest of the 30k++ can buy above average furnitures. Please comment if you have better suggestions. Tq

    November 5th, 2017 at 16:24 | #23

    Well, it all depends on individual, if you have that extra cash, then could spend more on quality products. Having Rm50k should be enough for me for all those basic needs.

    Guys, Tamarind and STP area are safe from last Saturday probably the heaviest rainfall ever experienced in Penang. I saw along the way two huge uprooted trees along Jln Sultan Ahmad Shah and of course one of the worst incident where the road in front of Straits Regency sink. Just pity those affected by the massive floods. Buying properties nowadays needs to be very careful.

    I remembered no grille door needed but not sure whether management allow us to do it. If not it would be advisable to install a cctv at the entrance.

    I’m sure there are bound to be some owner’s for security reasons insist on installing grille door but the developer should decide since they are managing for the first year.

    U can call the their sales Gallery and check. With the progression, they are able to handover keys by middle of next year. They are about to prepare for handing over keys stuff to the buyers. PS: Be kind to their sales staffs okay sometimes they might have mislook something during handover keys as there are 1000++ units.

    @Ben

    Why should we be kind to the sales staff just because they need to handle 1000++ units. They make damn a lot of money selling 1000++ units, so E&O should at least hire 3 to 4 times more than usual sales staff to handle customers. Want to make money but don’t want to spend money on sales staff?????

    December 8th, 2017 at 21:51 | #56

    I can see both the blocks have already completed the construction on the outer side, but to complete the interior n hand over keys by mid 2018 is surprising.

    @ Dylan @ Ben
    The Tamarind keys handover by June 2018 is mere speculation. Its not possible! The main reason being that the progessive billing stage is currenly only at the 50 – 60% level. So how can the keys be handed over so quickly? Doesn’t make any sense at all.
