Where my Seamus is concerned, he's not so easily manageable ... always wanna concur the next mountain, like walking up or down a moving escalator.
When we only had Seamus, we were using the MacLaren Techno XT: Mothercare SingaporeOriginally Posted by lisa_ng
Going up or down the escalator with it was such a breeze, so never had to suffer the pain of seeing the lift arriving a few times before it was empty enough to push the stroller in.
But, now with Siggi in the picture, we are using the Phil&Teds Dash: Phil and Teds Dash
Although it fits my requirement of ferrying my 2 sons around comfortably, along with lots of curious stares ... the thing is so heavy, my wifey refuse to use it when I'm not around. In other words, I now cannot "siam" from her shopping trips ... haizzz, dug the hole for my own self .
Other than that, pushing 3 wheelers down an escalator still ok ... but going up means you gotta do it facing the other direction. Try doing that when the mall is really crowded ... some idiots just wun give chance . Guess they must be the same idiots who refused to give up their seats in the MRT to preggies .
May I humbly ask WHAT should the kids wear before you feel safe?Originally Posted by princessminn
Like I mentioned earlier, it cannot be King's safety shoes of industrial standards (those with a metal plate to protect the toes) ... right?
the escalator thing?
i never eber let my sonnie play on escalator ~~
Once when we went cruise when my sonnie was 18 months , dont know how in the hell he got his 3 fingers (pointer, tallman + ringman) stuck inside the gap of the Lift door.....tell you my heart almost stopped.....thought tats the end of it....but i die die pull it out....and he cried like mad....really pray to my ancestors for protecting him manz....scary....real lucky....
so....same for escalators ...prevention is best.
cancan dar , my dear son is fine now .. sigh
today im so tired now gng to zzzzzzz ..
thanks autumn dear
During this bad times (or any other times, in my own opinion), agents will definitely not do anything for free.Originally Posted by lisa_ng
By handling everyting yourself as a seller, you must be very familiar with all HDB procedures ... this is the tricky part, especially since their policies change more frequently than any playboy changing girlfriends.
If you are not familiar, then you'd still end up using the buyer's agent's services & paying him the 2% commission ... you are unlikely to be able to negotiate for a lower commission becoz he'd already have you by your neck.
Worst still, when it's the same agent representing both the buyers & the sellers ... & the buyers actually engage him first, do you think he'd have your interests at heart when there are disputes arising?
In short, it is always safer to engage an agent ... especially one you can trust.
If any of you do decide you wanna have an exploratory chat with such an agent, just give me a shout & I have a very good guy to recommend ... he works under the following premises:
1) he absorbs the GST that is payable under the commission
2) he will benchmark his commission, according to the eventual selling price
To illustrate further, let's say you target the selling price of your flat at $250k ($20k above valuation) ... which my agent friend also agree as an acceptable asking price.
If you use this agent I recommend, he'll probably work out this proposal for you:
If sold @ $250k, he'll take 1% commission.
If sold @ $255k, he'll take 1.5% commission.
If sold @ $260k or more, he'll take 2% commission.
In this way, you can rest assured that he'll always try to push for a good price for you ... plus you dont lose out, since every extra 0.5% commission you are paying him, you yourself get to pocket at least another $3k yourself!!
On top of that, he absorbs the GST.
In other words, if commission is $3k ... you pay him $3k flat & save on the $210 GST.
Given his professionalism & his uniquely innovative rebates, based on performance ... still think it's not worth it to engage such an agent?
+ it's very bulky.. the car boot is so full of "modifications", that nothing big can be added inside.. even the maclaren techno xt that we're using now also kena squash in .. one day cfm squeeze until spoil .. sometimes i angry with dear husband family.. obviously is no space .. then dont want do anything bout it.. still sae can lahz can lahz.. one fine day squeeze until spoil liaoz.. they dont need expect mi to buy another one.. if they buy, they sure buy those cheapo .. i dont mean the cheapo one not safe.. i just dont trust the brands.. cuz my step dear daughter fell out from a L**** B*** stroller once.. the strap broke, that's y the fall.. mayb is cuz her height's prob that the stroller cant take it.. but still , the stroller was bought by my mother in law.. so..
