    Can consider going to new shopping spree at Vedro Mall by 2016. Only few minutes away from Jonker walk.

    eagerly awaiting the malaysian budget announcement today.....hopefully, their policies on foreign ownership of houses will be clearer after today. worst case scenario , if i am unable to sell, my family will just live there and commute to singapore in the future since i have a car. i have paid 10 percent of the purchase price with borrowed money, paying back 1200 a month for a few months, now awaiting the state consent, once, it is given i have to pay the rest within about 3 mths. really, hope for more clarification of the rules before my husband and i commit to the purchase. i am ok to buy it for longterm eventual retirement cum weekend home but husband more keen on it as a rental home and investment. i guess i can take over ownership and payment if i really want it.....have to make hubby happy with any arrangement as all our properties are coowned...

    better work life balance this way i guess, have to teach children from young that money doesnt drop from the sky, 4 year old was pretty good yesterday, did put away his toys for me, a chore, and i rewarded him with 50 cents, his first money earned, now what chore shall i ask my older one to do to make hime earn money...wash the car maybe....at this rate, i can save on hiring a maid.......follow the american system of making children earn their keep from young, i think it is a great idea!.
