    • thanks..i agree nice place just went to see the showroom, hdb even sell the show room not bad ..price rather reasonable, however just concern that they would fill up the void decks.. the new blks offered are 672 A,B,C..there are fences that keep them out but i doubt it will work.. i have seen how thais fill up beach rd..drunk and litter all over the place..

      Grew up there is a different situation. If you grew up in a swamp you will saw Macritchie Reservoir is a good pl to stay too. Laughing

      Moving in when you are an adult may take some time and lots of frustration to blend in. Cool

      someone asked how much is the price at little india --klang: 5 room going for abt 296 K, 10th floor.. the show room flat is going for 343 k.. interior design quite nice no need to come up with hard cash..

      all cpf.. surrounding offer units - farrer park, mcnair rd..me going for mcnair rd...

      people will start to book on thur 1st day..first 200 will get to select on the first day..tomorrow is the last day to take q no.. think no hope already...only 1113 units offer

    • all the prices should b given to u on the pricelist attached with the sales brochure and application form. a detailed breakdown of unit space, keys available, whether repurchased, unit no. & price.

      if your queue no is lower than 1113, chance is tat u get to pick a flat. the lower the no. the greater ur chance to pick your preferred unit. check out teletext or hdb.gov.sg to see what selection of flats leftover before u turn up for the walk-in selection. if your choice unit is gone, then no need to keep the appt liao....

    • 1st time when I went down to apply under WIS (Walk-in Selection), I got the tag number 346. By the time I got to choose, nothing favourable was left (only left with low-lying units and I'm used to staying on >=10 storeys).

      The 2nd time, I queued overnight as HDB Hub (Toa Payoh) and I got 24. Managed to get my 1st choice. Smile

      Whole idea is, chances of getting ur choice unit diminish with every increase of ur tag number.

      All the best!! Smile

      Little India- U should worry abt congestion, difficulty in parking (unless there are more carparks) & noise esp during festivals & security (foreign workers loitering around)

    • my selection date is FAR FAR away.
      Anyway, am already ready to wait for the next round.
      Hopefully can find better units then.

      Not very urgent actually but was hoping to get "FOC" funiture from in-laws. Razz

      Not being ractist by by fact .

      1) If you don't mind the smell
      2) If you don't mind people picnic on your ground floor
      3) if you don't mind a parade of people every weekend on road
