Updates of the defects in my HDB flat

We reported to the HDB service centre that the shower head holder in our toilet has fell apart, and there's cracks on our walls again on Tuesday night.

We have a total of 9 cracks spread over our 3 bedrooms and 1 in the living room. All are long cracks which start from the base of the wall to the ceiling.

HDB sent people to come and fixed the shower head holder pretty fast. It's done in like 15 mins. They changed the top part of the stick, which is the broken part and it's nicely done now.

The defect which gives us headache is the cracks on the walls.

The worker will first scrap the surrounding of the cracks then fill it with putty, and smoothen it.

A few hours later, they will come again to apply a second layer.

As they need to wait for the putty to dry before they can paint the walls, they will come back again the next day. They used a sandpaper to smoothen the walls before painting it, this made our house super powdery and dirty.

That's not the worse part. We kept the paints left for us by our contractor in the bomb shelter, little did we know that heat and lack of ventilation will cause the paint to spoil. The paint gave off a rotten egg smell when we open the lid! Oh my god! It stinks so badly but the worker told us that the smell will go away after the paint dries up, and we believed him. But it didn't, it still stinks after a few hours. The paint is continuously giving out that disgusting smell. We seriously couldn't tolerate that kind of smell in our master bedroom and study room. Need to mention that the paint that we have is Nippon paint wo, not some unknown brand leh.

We told the worker that the smell is still there after a few hours and he put another layer of putty to cover the smell. He will come back another day to paint it after we have bought the new tins of the paint.

Our weekend is burnt like that because of the defects in our HDB flat. We are so pissed! If I had known it's so troublesome to fix the cracks in the walls, I'll rather live with the 10 cracks.

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!

I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.

I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.

$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
