Their home, a 4-room BTO, was brand new when they received their keys. Sha said they felt very blessed to have gotten this apartment as they had almost opted for an oversubscribed project in Buangkok.
“We receive a letter that we were able to get a queue number for this Punggol project,” she recalled. “And honestly, we prefer Punggol because our queue number for selection was a better one.”
The couple’s excitement still lingers up to this day, especially since the area has become a thriving township. Jim said they couldn’t wait for the public library, food centre, and sports complex to be completed.
Sha and Jim, together with their “hundred pots of plants”, as Jim aptly puts it, are the current residents of their charming home. Let’s delve deeper into their fascinating reno journey.
