Half half


I was ecstatic when I know the squat toilet is going to be replaced by a sitting one. And new wall tiles too! But then.. I guess I “happy too early”.

P1110034

New toilet bowl, new wall tiles, new paint.

This is how my toilet looks like now…
Yeap, that’s it… that’s all.
The floor is going to be like that.
钟无艳。

Half all tiles, half new cement.
How “modern contemporary”.

Same goes to the bathroom.

The contractor convenient told us that “It’s not on the job list” when asked why is the floor like that. Seriously…. what the heck is this? Cannot tolerate okay.

So, I asked if I buy some floor tiles from them, and get the workers fix it, how much will be it? (Mind you, I asked for the cheapest tile)

$300.00!!! (Labour + tiles + cement)

*faint*

Niameh…

Haih, better consult other contractor or wait for the inspection and tell them. Kanasai to the max.

Tipu tu contractor ah. U knw..u can find indonesian or indian men yang walking around in kampungs to find jobs like this for cheaper payment. If you can't find any..u can ask ur frens kah. Orang brunei always hire people like this kalau kn tambah rumah.

Anonymous : Well.. sure tiles + cement don't cost that much. $300 is way beyond what we expect. We thought like $150 - 200 sure more than enough.

Like you say, can just get desperate workers around. Thanks for your suggestion.

Miff : The contractor lower it down to $200 so we take the deal. Today we're gonna having spanking new tiles for the washrooms!
