      yes, this is newly soft-launched. The price is from RM 358k onwards, they give RM20k discount for the first 50 early birds. Since this is still new, there are still around 30++ units for early birds :)

    Its not near to Sungai Rambai.
    This location is quite convenience, in the middle excess to Butterworth-BM and also Alma way to the south. Can easily to Prai Industry Area & Bukit Minyak Industry Area.

    If not mistaken, this should be the 4th project by the Oriental Max with the similar 3-storey link house design. There are D-Link in Butterworth, Merbau Indah in Sungai Dua, and also D’Garden in Jawi.

    The early bird price RM 338k is very attractive as this price is even lower than some 2-storey terrace project at Permatang Pauh, BM and even Alma, Simpang Ampat.

    HLB jz offer 30 yrs or up to 65 yrs old . How many yr u want to borrow ? Actually I want to ask others legal firm to compare the price 1st only choose whether take the developer appointed legal firm or others . Mind I ask u , u’re male or female ?

  45. JC
    August 3rd, 2011 at 22:17 | #46

    Free S&P only.
    I have a doubt. Why we hv to use the lawyer appoint by the developer since they didnt free for us?

  46. Jess
    August 3rd, 2011 at 22:26 | #47

    u can choose others legal firm but not free S&P . not compulsory to use the lawyer who appointed by the developer .

    may i suggest u to view the corner unit ..actually i hv been to the contruction site to view the external house and ground floor. there is something weird thing abt corner unit tht u may wan to ask the developer. tht’s the reason i dont buy corner unit.

  48. JC
    August 3rd, 2011 at 22:39 | #49

    I was told by the office ppl there, if want to get free S&P, we need to use their appoint lawyer for Loan aggrement and transfer aggrement also. Can we get their free S&P but get others legal firm to do loan aggrement and transfer aggrement?

  49. gcsla
    August 3rd, 2011 at 22:50 | #50

    hi jc
    wht unit do u book ? if u dont mind to let us knw.
    i thk abt loan part hv to use their lawyer as well.. how if we gather together to ask discount from lawyer.. if he dont gv us cheap price. then we dont let him do S&P part lo… can work bo?

  50. JC
    August 3rd, 2011 at 22:58 | #51

    I was booking the 3rd row frow top. I am afraid the lawyer will charge us with high price since they force us to use their appoited lawyer for loan aggrement and transfer aggrement.

  51. gcsla
    August 3rd, 2011 at 23:16 | #52

    hi jc

Mine 1 site garden front 15′ & back 20′ ft , total is 1080 sq ft. Will go to have a look external house this Saturday . Thanks for ur advice :)

  53. Jess

  54. JC
    August 4th, 2011 at 08:22 | #55


    That why i am doubt why we have to use their appointed legal firm for loan and transfer aggrement if we want to get the free S&P. As i know, others developer didnt force the buyer to do so.

    Hi YY,

    Corner unit base on the sq ft , RM 50 per sq ft & corner premium extra 20k.

    Hi jess, the corner unit is totally different than the merbau indah .. The intermediate is the same. The staicase is inside ur room.. So almost half of the room is occupied by the staircase. tht’s the weird part.. I do ask developer. They say corner unit is like tht.. So i change to intermediate unit..

    that area will not flood, but the front big road did flood once this year. The road in front of the lok yuen also flooded. This has not happen before, i think it is due to too many development and also due to the railway track development. The road heading to pacific from BM also flooded.

    the garden view unit is RM 15k with extra balcony at the back.

    Hi all neighbors!! hehe…

    August 4th, 2011 at 19:50 | #72

    Hi all neighbours :)
    a) Everyone is afraid of flood, including myself. Its a relief to hear that flood only happened once this year. Please refer to my comments under Desa Titi Panjang. Many parts were also affected by flood this year. Some claimed caused by Sg Juru, Sg Rambai and also the famous railway track. The effects of the rivers should not be a concern here, while Chief Minister already settled the railway problem. BUT, do share if you have flood experiences here, sincerely appreciated.

    b) This project only has ONE panel lawyer, which is bad as there is no competition. I believe they WILL NOT give discounts, kept saying that buyers can opt to use other lawyers but S&P will not be covered. They know that the legal price for both S&P and loan will be much higher. Also, during booking, there is a RM500 forfeit.

    c) I read above on the mention of a “good deal” and “good luck”. Not sure if this is the BEST deal, but upon comparison with nearby projects, it is cheaper. A few roads away, in Taman Kerjasama, a double storey semi-D is selling for around RM 450K. Ban Eng Hock (Sorry if I get the name wrong) project just down the road was selling semi-D for > RM 660K and bungalows for > RM 850K. I like that project alot, asked if there is a possibility of any buyers could not get loans. Despite the price, aLL sold out and ALL loans approved!

    i did ask this question during booking because got 2-3 friends are booking together. The ans is u may get few k discount if you out of 1st 50 units. Since it already have 20k discount for 1st 50 units, do u think entitle get extra discount? if it is, it is not fair to others buyer.

    it’s 3 storey link house, u will not feel it’s small, in fact the bedroom is big if you compared to double storey house, as only 2 rooms in 1st floor (normall double storey has 3 bedrooms)

    August 5th, 2011 at 10:00 | #91

    Hi all, yes, I agree, there is a great community (neighbours) here.

    Anyway, I received the same respond from developer on the legal fee thingy, of course, they put it in polite words, but the meaning is the same. Take it or leave it. Developer has nothing to loose and there is only one panel lawyer anyway.

    When I was there, already around > 30 units sold/reserved. While I was there, another 2 more young couples walked in, took the Central Way brochure and talked to another sales agent. Seems like many are interested.

    I like the garden view too. Actually all units are nice. I am just concern that for normal view, rooms will face rooms of the opposite units. Well, I can see my opposite neighours rooms too from the garden view, but its a little further at least. Those who like garden view, better get fast, not that many left especially those facing South. Imagine, after the 20K discount, those normal view will be almost the same price as garden view, bo-tat la.

  91. Deal
    August 5th, 2011 at 10:14 | #92

    Garden view is better, extra 15000 spread over 30 years loan is only paying RM80 more per month, you get a bigger sq ft, extra balcony & garden at the back of the house.

    Hi All,

    I heared there is one unit of Semi-D for sales and just next to new project Ban Eng Hock. The house is quite big 34X70 and build up area is around 2300++ . It is very spacious.The seller want to sell with all light , fan, grill , minor landscape and kitchen cabinet. Not easy for me to decide for new project or old house. Pls advise it.

    Hi All,

    Do you aware that there is RM10K for booking , if you cancel the booking then the developer will forfeit RM2k. Also the S&P is end of this year. I don’t know why they need RM10K for booking fees and forfeit RM2K. If the developer is very confident that area, why they scare about it.
    FYI, the Gemilang permai from Airmas, it is also RM10K for deposit but they just forfeit RM1K only. Compare to Gemilang permai with centralway, the Gemilang permai is RM788K and RM338K. Why the developer worry about this. It is really make me not secure at all.

    for me the garden view benefit is, more privacy + more secure.. it’s in centre of the taman…

    another question, it is strata title ot individual title?

  101. SLK
    August 5th, 2011 at 14:46 | #102

    Hi All neighbour

    i need your opinion to give me some suggestion. For the corner house plot 28,29 & 54 which one is more worth. The price is almost same within 382-383K after discount 20K. The only different is the compound area plot 54 is 8.3sf and 28,29 is 7.3sf. Among these 3 units which one is better? Anyone of u choosing these 3 units?

  102. fgh
    August 5th, 2011 at 15:11 | #103

    My advice… Dont chose corner unit.. U mst see the show unit.

    August 5th, 2011 at 15:12 | #104


    it is strata title. :)

    August 5th, 2011 at 15:32 | #106


    strata title ? no wonder price is low. later will have problems if you have a bad neigbourhood or else to pay large sum of money to relaim the individual title.

    we will know if flood or not during raining season but by then, too late except to by boat to row row

  106. p
    August 5th, 2011 at 16:10 | #107

    em..i think all G&G community is under Strata title if not mistaken.

  107. SLK
    August 5th, 2011 at 17:22 | #108

    Plot 29 still available, just now the sales agent called me that the owner change to intemediate lot.
    Dont worry, all sold out units mostly is Chinese. Tomorrow who will go to servey the show unit? i will go at 9am. See u guys there.

  108. SLK
    August 5th, 2011 at 17:24 | #109

    so know i was headache on choosing which plot. 54 or 29….feel so dilemma. Anyone give me an advice?

  109. Ken (Admin)
    August 5th, 2011 at 17:27 | #110

    In order to build perimeter concrete fencing around the housing area (gated), it has to be Strata title. If it is individual title, it can only be guarded. :)

    Here is a typical gated development guideline.


  110. Jess
    August 5th, 2011 at 17:58 | #111

    Hi SLK
    If u want a bit privacy , u can choose plot 54 . Plot 29 is center corner lot.
    I heard gcsla said corner lot ground floor guest room a bit weird , im also doubt abt that .
    Coz I already bought a corner lot last 2 weeks ago. Tomorrow will go to have a look .

    u know what is called sales tactic ? the scenerio by sales persons from the developer actor/actress here. you one word i one word to create the impression of very high demand on this site. u know wat i mean ?

  113. oscar
    August 5th, 2011 at 18:59 | #114


    now you see the trick of the sales, they just simply put a reservered/booked unit to tell the demand is very high, in actual not the case. you can ask few more units those booked, end of they will tell u ‘oh the buyer change to corner unit, therefore you can get this unit bla bla bla. really no leg of marketing

    August 5th, 2011 at 20:08 | #118

    actually carrefour there also had a new project. land size is about 22″x70″ price is from 380K above. You can try search and call them for enquiry. I felt Carrefour thr location is nice and price also reasonable.

    Hi Oscar, I agree with you .. here a lot of actor/actress here ……Look like no complaint and comment for the downpayment (RM10K) and forfeit you RM2K if you don’t want to purchase or change your mind….Pls consider and think carefully to buy this house here….

  122. KK
    August 5th, 2011 at 21:17 | #123


    Any disadvantages if buy the house there… the downpayment is quite high and the forfeit is unreasonable do you mean tht. If you consider to buy and the project is good, i dun think the RM10k is a matter rite… Is this project no good, any advise

  123. fgh
    August 5th, 2011 at 21:25 | #124

    Hi yy
    If u r buying a house, for sure u hv to decide properly. I thk the commitment for 300k loan is more imp than ur 2k being forfeited.if u r not secure.. Jst dont buy it lo..
    This is not my dreamhouse cos the corner unit is suck.

  124. P
    August 5th, 2011 at 21:35 | #125

    i would put it this way..RM330k house..u can’t really complaint about the size(for the grow floor design, plz blame the stupid designer. :) ). If compare with villa primero, BM permai, BM Utama..those project already shoot up to RM380 onwards…
    If you are patient enough, you may wait for reccesion, i believe definitely u will get a great deal..But for the current market..is kinda tough to get such price with G&G Community..just my 2 cents.

  125. house-in-mainland
    August 5th, 2011 at 23:15 | #126

    338k just fair price, not cheap also as it not include the bank legal and stamp fee >10k and bank interest for 2.5 yrs add up total also ~20k +338K =358K

  126. yy
    August 5th, 2011 at 23:22 | #127

    Hi KK,

    I feel that booking fees quite high compare the house only RM338k. My sister in law bought a house from gemilang permai and the price is RM788K. The booking fees is just RM10k and forfeit RM1k if you cancel…Compare to this, you will feel it is not reasonable at all . That’s why I need to voice out , let people know….if not , other developer will follow and make this higher booking fees will be common thing . I just wonder that if the developer is very confident for this project , why they need the booking fees is so high to trap the customer . It is not feel good lah..

    Disadvantage of this project is ….

    1. Too deep and not easy get thru…

    2. The land size is small ……..compare to old project there. FYi,the size of
    corner unit just same size with this taman Semi D… but the price almost same with
    Semi D price at this area.. That mean this teres house is quite expensive for this area.
    So, if got chances better buy the old semi D here… better class , right?

    3. No walking distance for hawker food around this taman …only lok yan ..Morning only can eat expensive mee goreng and nasi lemak beside lok yan.

    4. No wet market here and the chinese mini market also expensive and sometime will sell the expiry thing ….so pls be careful to buy some thing over there.

    5. Banjir kilat at lok yan and main road…..But don’t worry , so far no banjir history for this taman .

    Advantages for this project…

    1. Very convenience to go anyway if you don’t mind the small road for entrance. Very near with Penang bridge and Kulim. If you work at Penang island and Kulim, this location is not bad. Compare to alma , this locataion is better .

    2. A lot of supermarket nearby like Jusco , Tesco , carefour , pacific… within 5k ~ 10km.

    3.This area is safe because TALKIE BUKITTENGAH central over there. So, a lot of volunteer guard surrounding this area .

    4. Compare to pricing….it can say that it is cheaper in BM but only expensive for this taman.

    Anyway, this is just my comment for this project. But decision is still with you…….

    I had went to the site & view, the ground flour design is weird…especially the staircase inside the room (for corner lot)…then the living area is small…2 room on the 1st floor is Okay….but the 2nd living area on 2nd floor also look small….
    so serious buyer, go to the site & view it…

  147. SLK
    August 8th, 2011 at 12:44 | #148

    Master room also quite small but compare with condo/apartment still is land house better than none la…..the trend now is really hard to find 1)cheaper price 2)spacious 3)good design concept (int & ext) & Feng Shui 4)good location and conveniences 5)safety and secure.

    @Jess yes, took 2k for lesson learned, i was too fast to make decision without doing a proper invetigation and survey as I new to that area, but still better than after signing s&p, 330k lesson will be too risky to take.

    I am also a regular factory worker. If dont buy now have to continue rent house. Wait for the house price drop just buy? or when save enough money just buy? Market is everyday up and down, when the market is up like this pass 2 years the house price is up too. So u have to get ur balance point of buying house.

    Correct me if I’m wrong.

  185. Gcsla
    August 9th, 2011 at 12:14 | #186

    U can survey d link as well. Under strata title , as long as the commitee at tht housing area agree.. We can renovate. I m sure everyone also want to extend to the bck.. Underg& g .. The rule is fixed by the residant inside tht housing area.

  186. Ken (Admin)
    August 9th, 2011 at 12:24 | #187

    Gcsla is right. As long as it is approved by JMB, then you can renovate your house.

    However, you can only do that after strata title is issued. Usually we should avoid renovation before the strata title is issued to avoid any delay in approval.

    By the way, I think BM Utama is not under strata. It is only a guarded community.

    Can we check the legal fees that we have to pay from their appointed firm and do price comparison with own conveyancing firm? I have referred to a friend of mine and she (a lawyer) said she needs my detail like loan amount, developer company, property amount, OFFERED PRICE from appointed legal firm and she will try to give me better price if her charges can be much cheaper than the appointed one.

    For your information, it’s impossible for strata title changed to individual title. Strata title means that 99 units share a piece of land including the garden. Individual title means every unit owns the land that his house is sitting on.

    By-law, houses with strata title are not allowed to modify or renovate its exterior. However, there are many cases where owners get approval from council to renovate their houses. But, my advice is wait until the individual’s strata title comes out, then you only apply to council to renovate your house. If you renovate before the individual’s strata title comes out, then council goes to do inspection after that, then trouble will come forward to you. —-> Said by developer

    strata title is not allowed to do modification from the exterior while individual title can, but they need a permit, so called a proper legal way for renovation, perhaps.

    D Link residence will get into trouble later, where strata title still not issue but renovation already started and they did not get approval from the committee. How I know because my friends stay there and they complaint but no action…

    if you have a bad neighbourhood who never follow rules set under g&g and go ahead with the renovation, there are many illegal extention happend now, u think it wont happend in g&g ? then you can kiss goodbye of your strata title hope. you will not get approval for individual title and bank will not give loan anymore after 10 yrs. at that point of time, you just can pray for cash buyer come to rescue you.

    usually when i buy house, i don’t look at those cheap price one, u know y ? because it will attract a lot of low class ppl to buy also, so I make sure I always look for more expensive house, to have a better class of neighbours.
