Our very own Home.

I’m so excited! Our queue number in the latest BTO at Sengkang was around 260 with 460+ units for selection. We will be selecting our unit in 2 weeks time. We should be able to get a semi-decent unit though we’re not super particular about most things except location and as long as it’s not on a very low floor. In the last 4 or 5 BTOs, we were flat out above the 300% cut off i.e queue number was more than 3x the number of units available. Even though we may not even be around to stay in the place, we’ll at least have the option of coming back to a place of our own. Most likely that will be for the sake of Calvin, either for his education or at the minimum his reservist. Poor guy, can’t believe that he will have go for that. It’s such a waste of time, but there’s no escaping from it coz we definitely won’t be able to convert him to another citizenship by the time he turns 11, which is the cut off by which boys can choose to drop their Singapore citizenship without serving NS. So far, seems like the units facing the ‘longkang’ and park are the most popular though we are personally more concerned with how close it is to the MRT. The distance from the development is about 1 km to Sengkang MRT which is about the same distance we have to walk now to the MRT, so I can imagine us walking over instead of waiting for the LRT. Plus we’d rather stay close to the parking lot. The thought of having to walk 300m to and from the multistory carpark just seems pretty blah. Well, so we have a wish list of sorts but I guess ultimately we’re fine with most of the choices. Will see what’s left when it’s our turn.

P.S: More words that Baby Calvin has picked up 19. Shoes (‘Sh..sh…sh…shu’)
