Its been a while since my last post and allot has happened since.
Firstly, I've got the keys to my apartment four weeks ago. I do have to apologize for keeping this long secret from all of you, but I thought of making it a surprise with photos and such, which coincidentally I've left the memory card reader at work, so no photos yet.
I bought that place in November last year, right before the revised lending rate and the free moving fees abolish for home loans due to the strengthening economy, which is good for me as I saved at least 4k on lawyer and valuation fees. There are some drama while acquiring the unit as I've almost given up the place when I was told by the bank officer that the old offer was over on the day I went surveying at banks for home loan, but this particular bank officer did give me a week extension to file my application although the rates isn't exactly the best in town, but it's better then most and has less negative review, unlike the 'chinese bank', 'tiger bank' and some other foreign banks with really tight rules on home loans for non landed property.
so, where is this place that I just got? you'll have to wait to find out more. :P
