PUBLISHED ALREADY: Home Projects – Do it yourself or pay someone else in Singapore?

In this issue of The Finder Singapore (Issue 275), I wrote all about my go-to stores for furniture and accessories in Singapore. Then, I also wrote about different house projects that you might execute while living in Singapore:

  1. Painting your walls
  2. Wallpapering
  3. Wall-mounting or hanging stuff
  4. Cleaning tile and marble
  5. Plumbing repairs

In the article, I give tips and tricks for doing it yourself and I call out some helpful Singapore vendors who can help you to do it, if you’re willing to “Pay Someone Else” to get it done!

I also wrote a piece that covers the time that all ex-pats hate – MOVING! Whenever you move out of a condo or property in Singapore, you want to be sure that you have everything tidied and repaired before you go off, or risk having a hefty portion of your security deposit held back. Seriously – we had a landlord charge us for the changing of batteries in a doorbell. And he paid an electrician to do it. So be sure you follow these tips and get your place all fixed up before you move out!
