    @Pg Lang
    WTH unit wall was so solid that it has ruin 8 drill bits.

    But the bathroom ceramic tile has blunt my tile drill bit for sure.

    I am using Bosch 18V cordless impact driver(price over RM1k), pretty sure the tool is the right one. Now I changed to use Bosch brand drill bits for tile and combine with bit for brick bought at ACE hardware shop. It improved, but still not easy, especially the bath room.

    I’m using China cap X Mr DIY rotary hammer drill. It work pretty well compare to impact drill which need lot’s of pressure to drive the drill bit in.
    I switch to 8mm circular tile drill bit. Save a lot of time with pretty decent result. But the tile masonry workmanship really not up to par when gap here and there. Just afraid the floor water proofing work.
    Wonder anyone had water leakage problem?

    @highway @Thanks

    I had water leakage on my ceiling kitchen, but not at toilet area. The issue is piping of above my unit at yard area leakage for long time and leaking through the concrete beam between yard and kitchen. Lucky, someone already stayed above my unit, settled before i install my kitchen cabinets. Main contractor changed new pipe at above unit. To double prevent the water leakage, they added adhesive injection from my ceiling. So far no more leakage found.

    No owner will talk bad about their own property. It is best you go and view it for yourself. I’ve viewed a few units here and decided to buy elsewhere because (1) The master room layout is too small (2) Layout not practical and not fully utilizing the space (3) Looking out from the window gives you a feeling the place is too congested with too many developments around the area

    Low price sure all small2lah, if u want big layout go to buy >1600sqf condo, sure all big2 for u.
    U choose wrong facing to low cost flat so u feel so congested, hill view is better. Why u didn’t survey & decide carefully before u buy???

    Actually this Ideal & GSD area are high congested place, 15 flats & low costs surrounded, some on going & future housing projects make it more worse. Very high populations & traffic constraint, no good for staying.

    @Player Hahaha…you must be one of the owner, hard to accept ppl telling you the truth. Anyway, my intention is not to bad mouth this property, but to present my observation as a serious buyer when I was surveying for property to purchase few months back. The asking price for this condo has drop significantly from when I first surveyed last year, still I decided to buy elsewhere because I just don’t like the layout and surrounding. Fyi, I owned other properties with just 900+ sf but the master room is big enough for a king size bed + wardrobe and still plenty of room to move around. It’s all about how the architects utilize the space which unfortunately for the buyer, is not something you can easily modified once it’s built.

    Hi Macha,

    Thanks for your view on this, I have the same thought as you and I was seeing there is a number of SR properties on sale at a quite decent price haha so I am very skeptical about this though. I am open to suggestion and critics any new properties if any of you guys have 1 or 2 thoughts to share.

    I move in last March as a tenant and everything was good. Last week, 2 houses got broke in and yesterday I saw 9 Bangladeshi men move in next door. Saw 2 of them lingering outside their unit smoking and talking loudly. I don’t feel safe anymore living in this condition. Will be moving out as soon as possible. Seems that unit owner are desperate to rent out their unit and they don’t care who they rent out too.

    Really nice large condo .. but why the staff are so angry and impolite to the guest/visitor, laa ??

    Stay my friends condo here but so many issue with the guard .. basically harassment.

    I think need someone talk to the building management, because quite unprofessional behavior.

    I stay in my friends condo – I really love it, nice space, high ceiling, fittings ok, very new.

    BUT .. the guard is a real problem – basically they harrass me and my son everyday. We are nice people, never make any issue or big noise .. I don’t know why they are so angry and impolite, especially in front of my 12yo son.

    We have problem at the guardhouse, wont let taxi in, then problem when you swim the pool. One guy basically yelling at us in the lift, and get so angry, raising the voice… especially when I ask him his name .. [ no uniform so how I can know if he work there or not ? ]

    Im not sure why they think is good for business to harrass people who are guest of the owner..

    Maybe thats the reason the price drop so much ?? – bad management make investor go away ?

    One guard wont tell me his name, but point to his guard uniform and say “polisi” : ) … I think polis have more important thing than stop guest swim in the pool ?

    Not sure why they want the condo to stay empty ?

    I am not sure why there are still bangla stay in SR since banner on guard house showing “no homestay and no hostel”, any idea?

  35. ck123
    May 1st, 2017 at 20:44 | #35

    just some sharing, a lot of investors using residents title to do home stay business activity, so we can see some condo/apartment putting the banner no homestay allow. Using residents apartment to do business have high potential to create many issues to the property (just like no proper attire into swimming pool, too many different people/strangers/cars get in and out and causing security problem) . The investors really not consider the residents for own stay

    furthermore the investor enjoys all the residents property’s subsidy for business purpose. Lower assessment fees/lower electricity fees, no need permit etc..make the private residential area like hotel and hostel, If really want to do homes stay can invest commercial/service title apartments..but not private residents apartments/condo

    The security guard is not strict enough, sometimes MIA, ppl wearing skaf also can go into the swimming pool, no warning from security officer at all, the exit barrier also no security post, anyone can enter or exit without concern, I am not only knowing how to critic, but what for we still need a security guard if not leaving in a secure condition?
