    HDB Sales Decline

    Yet another decline in HDB sales in the Singapore market which can only mean good news for couples whom are looking to buy their flat fast. With more interest on Exective Condo by those that can afford it and all the cooling measure, this can only mean better news ahead for flat buyers. 

    HDB's flash estimate of Q2 2014 Resale Price Index (RPI) is 196.0, a decline of 1.3 percent over Q1 2014 and this marks a price drop for fourth consecutive quarters. In a statement, PropNex said the falling resale prices can be due to various government measures to cool the public housing market, such as reducing the Mortgage Servicing Ratio (MSR) cap of 30 per cent and the maximum loan term of 25 years for HDB mortgage loans. The three-year wait before new PRs can buy resale flats, and allowing singles to buy two-room BTO flats in non-mature estates are also likely to be contributing factors, and these measures work in tandem to reduce the resale demand.



    Toiletbowl choke: What you should do.

    Found this article on choke toilet bowl that i belive would be useful for anyone. Learned how to deal with a choke the hard way as i continued flushing even when the water refuse to subside. This resulted in a very messy situation at the end. Read below for the full article:


    A toiletbowl choke or clog can be a rather embarrassing and highly inconvenient problem to deal with. With some clogs, the level of the water inside the toilet bowl will rise dangerously close to the overflow point, but eventually, the toiletbowl’s contents will go down the drain.

    This may continue on with each flush until the choke is dealt with. Other types of clogs may result in water and waste from the toiletbowl seeping out onto the floor, and the toilet may continue to run and cause a watery mess in your home until water leading to the toilet is turned off.

    Understanding how to deal with a toiletbowl choke is a necessity for any homeowner or renter.

    Turn Off the Water

    As a first step, you should immediately shut off the water main that leads to the toilet. Generally, this is accomplished by turning a little knob located on the wall behind the toilet. By turning this knob, you will stop the flow of water into the toilet. This will in turn stop additional water from pouring out of the toilet bowl. You should also take steps to clean up water on the floor before attempting to fix the toilet. This can prevent water damage from affecting your home.
