today... mummy's gonna ramble about house.... :) why? there's a story i want to share and i really wanna get it out from my chest!
All of us... married couple especially... will have their own dream of owning a home! true?
if no then it's ok.. hehe..so do my husband and i... the one that we are living right now is an apartment.. the one we can afford... and i can say it's still big for us.. even though with additional-Armand! :) however... it's always have been my dream to live in a landed property... with a small garden aka land area... why? because i like gardening and i like to wash my own car! ahahha... and also it reminds me of my childhood where i love to play around my folks' gardens.. i would like for Armand to experience the same... soooooooooo... we went for house-hunting last weekend... *phewww* with a certain range price, the one we can afford of course, new development area, where pricing is still reasonable and with certain locations that we aim.... from Bukit Jelutong all the way to Shah Alam2... and from Bukit Bandaraya to Alam Impian, Shah Alam... and we have decided to pick one! :)
Kuala Lumpur = no no noooooo....... me no like jam!
Kajang/ Bangi = no no noooooo....... me never know that area
Cyberjaya/ Putrajaya = hmmmm...... i dunno why i donch like this area.. ahha...
Klang = my hubby don wan.. very far to his work place
Petaling Jaya/ Hartamas/ Damansara = new property? banglo/ semi-D byk la.. ko mampoo????
1. Sunway Alam Suria Phase 1b(iii), Developer: Sunway City Berhad
- They are launching Phase 1c... 2 1/2 storey link-houses... veli niceeee.... modern design... 22'x 65'.....
:) :) :) i love this type of design very much.. and i would say, current houses are designed to be modern/ contemporary...
as i said before... i would like a garden area.. so, to cut it short we only ask for corner lot price... RM740k++ *gulpppp first time*
but.. the sales person, Ms Tan.. veeeeeeliiiiiiiii nice lady... told us that from previous launch, Phase 1biii... there are 3 corner lots left, 2-storey.. cheaper than 1c area... construction -wise.. halfway done... hmmm... to be considered... size: 47' x 65'. Near to Surau... they just built the surau... community.. i wud say 60% malay... guess only hor.. :) accessible through major highways..
2. Amanda & Carmita, Shah Alam2. Developer: IJM Land. cluster semi-Ds
- ahemmm.. yep.. semi-D 20' x 55'.. yet it's still very cheap for semi-D!! RM320k onwards... Amanda's corner lot sold out.. damn! Carmitta still have one... the land area itself is 6000++ square feet! damn... leh buat lagi 3 rumah kut... ahhaha.. cost: RM504k.. community... 90% malay.. i guess again.. :)
Carmita's show unit... fully furnished with IKEA furnitures... wanna buy show house, fully furnished RM560k.. nice! :)
But.................. a longgggggggggggggggg but....................... Shah Alam2 is so damn far!!!! huwaaaaaaaaaa........ it's near UiTM Puncak Alam campus... and it's in the area of Majlis Bandaran Kuala Selangor... aiyoooo.. if i were to stay there... then i can say goodbye to Fitness First and True Fitness... seriously! and those who wanna visit me, for sure i'll bring you to watch kelip-kelip.. haha..
3. Collaris, Bukit Bandaraya. Developer: LebarDaun Sdn Bhd
- Veryyyyyyyyyy nice house again.... 2-storey 22' x 75'
pricewise ok for intermediate... location.. next to Taman Pertanian Msia, Shah Alam aka Bukit Cerakah... at the back of the development is actually the reserve land area... confirmed there will be NO development at the back there.. 2 natural lakes nearby... very soothing area...
Thing is... corner lot.. RM880,888! *faint* but it's a verrrrry big house... 35'x 75' just the house.. (not sure about the 75'.. maybe 80'.. hehe) 6+1 bedrooms.. 5 bathrooms... wow! dreamhouse okeh.. salesperson, Alex.... veeliiiiiiiiiii nice person also.. he brought us to the site area and explained the developer's plan for that area... majority Malay as well.. surau already active as their first phase housing area was years back... accessibility.. only one route.. thru Shah Alam... not attach to any highways...
4. Aquina, TTDI Alam Impian. Developer: Naza TTDI
- 20'x80', 22'x80' and 24'x80'..... few types... pricing starts from RM740k++... hmmm... very nice design and spacious! near highways... in-and-out..LKSA highway... compulsory RM1.20 toll! new township...
one end-unit 22'x80' will cost us RM826k... hmmm... bigger ones... hmmm... take a guess....
this one... DEFINITELY A NO-NO to us!!! why????? coz the salesperson it's soooooooooooooo condescending... arghhhhhh....... malu i mengaku jadi melayu! firstly, when we stepped in the 'launch' area around 3pm... nobody attended to us.. we thought, maybe there are lots of ppl and few of them to handle... but no................ there are around 7-8 ladies/ gents who are 'free' and just stand still!! i dunno what is their function... and i approach them and asking things... she reluctantly answered my questions... i'm started to get pissed... and i told her to get somebody who can answer my question without referring to somebody every time to get the answer! then she brought me to a malay guy.. looks a bit senior and i can see his name on the sticker thingy on the board.. meaning he managed to do quite a number of sales that day.. and i think.. owh.. he must be good... hmmmmmm.... first thing he asked us, "you punya bajet bulan2 berapa ya... 800? 900?" and he smirked!!! whatttttttttttttt in the hell is that?!??!?!?!? you ingat sbb i pakai t-shirt and jeans i tak mampu ke nak beli rumah yg u jual konon2 mahal sgt tuh?!??!? heyyyyyyyyyyyy................. u should not do that to your potential clients!! after that i pointed straight to the end-unit.. "i want that unit price... we are looking for corner unit.. get somebody who can tell us the next step, paperwork and so on" then he attended to us nicely and explain to us the township planning and everything... *sigh* i don't want to eleborate anymore... seriously i'm really disappointed on how NAZA trained their salesperson... maybe it's their 'thingy' of only attending to 'look-rich' kinda person... so be it... as for us, we are soooo not gonna buy their house just because of the way we were treated!!
and this is the story i want to share! maybe a 'look-out' for you guys if you are facing this kind of situation.. never give-in to this kind of attitude.. no matter how big is the company that you are working with, you have no right to look down on people!! it just shows how low your morale is!!!
And conclusion for us... we settled with Sunway Alam Suriam phase 1biii! :) did i tell u our house is next to the linear park? after this.. no reason not to jogging! heheh...
house - big enough for our use... and for the price we can afford... :) now we are saving/ planning/ budgetting to interior-design our house.. yayy!!... verangan time! hheheh... any recommendation on good interior designer? :)
