All my best for newer Farlim project residences.....Bought one of their apartment recently and going through nightmare to get things settled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not worth the maintenance that need to be paid :)

awesome. I'd bought block B 19th floor corner unit. hey dude, are you sure there is a nice view from there? pay RM15K more compare with face Sri Impain, worth it?

 
April 2, 2008 at 9:03 PM Anonymous said...

Emm...I'm sure it's worth...maybe can say in this way , for own live and ppl who only require a budget "home" ; Sri Impian view unit may be their choice as can save a lot of money but still enjoy same faciities ... however for invest , beside need to have good unit (like you did which purchase corner unit with higher price), Good view is also one of the important factor ...Trust me sure no regret one , the view is owesome :) If we lucky enough , PGCC build sucessfully and we will have the great tower view too !

For block B 19th floor, how much u bought?

 
April 2, 2008 at 9:17 PM Anonymous said...

Hello guys ! great to see many fedback for this project ... I'm buyer for block B , i think now oredi reach 10++ floor ...i check google earth , actually Sri Kristal is direct face to Penang Hill ...and yes , we will have Kek Lok Si and Bt Gantung View ( PGCC site ) ...arr~~ A bit far from gurney but considering the land level is high , It's possible to view until there too ... One concern , proposed PORR should be near by only ( beside Farlim komplek ) , is it good or bad thing ?

 
May 4, 2008 at 3:50 PM Anonymous said...

i'm resident of Farlim. For my advise, don't put too much hope on this new project. The busy traffic never improve this 10 years and poor maintainance office will make you regret....

 
May 4, 2008 at 4:12 PM Anonymous said...

Emm ... what to do ? any others M.cost project in Penang island with similar price and facilities ? definatelly no ~~ The trend now is towards high end home due to land price too expensive and low cost flat to full fill agreement between developer and goverment ... We cannot find M.cost apartment like Sri Kristal from rage RM100K ~ RM200K in future ... not believe ? u can check and see ...

Agreed with you, " Poor maintenance office " is the killing point for Farlim project...
unless Farlim top management take some action to prove to everyone

 
May 5, 2008 at 1:10 PM Anonymous said...

Agreed, I stay at Farlim for more than 10 yrs..and the apartment I'm staying already looks bad exterior wise, no painting for the 10 yrs and the lift always breakdown.

Farlim mgmt need to buck-up.
Always give excuses of some residents not paying the maintenance fee.

Ya ... i hope got Farlim group staff read this blog and feedback to ur top management ... Sri Kristal definately look great but we seeking for better and improve mantainance and management ! time is different with 10years ago , u must always listening and improve as this is the only way for developer to survive ...

I have friends stay at Farlim. The exterior was dirty.. my friends did asking the management ppl why still no painting yet, the answer given is NO BUDGET...so funny

Is it true the Farlim Group maintenance service is very bad? I just bought a unit last month, hopefully they wil improve their maintenance for this new project...

Wow..so many negative feedback. I need reconsider my investment at Farlim..

 
May 12, 2008 at 2:03 PM Anonymous said...

eh ? can u tell me how to invest on farlim ?

 
May 13, 2008 at 10:08 PM Anonymous said...

Sri Kristal will be last apartment project in Farlim ( By Farlim Group ) ; This is simply because there's no land de...For sure it going to be the best as well ; Otherwise , no one will buy any properties from Farlim Group in future ...the good thing from buying Farlim Group project is they never have any abonded project so far ... Recently have some new developer like Nusmetro(Oasis),Lereng Wira(Vista Gambir) but have many un-settle issue during initial stage,their project launched long time ago but the progress was slow , Nusmetro even not able to start construction yet. The properties in Farlim may not well appreciate like others prime area ; However,you got everything here bank,restaurant,sunshine,petrol station..etc and coming soon Medical Center...My opinion for invest maye so so but for own live it's not a bad choice ...

 
May 14, 2008 at 11:06 AM Anonymous said...

I am agree with you, it is very convenient since sunshine, petrol station, restaurant etc... and even wet market are near by. Now there are 2 main problems here, one is car park since i bought a unit with only one car park and the units with 2 car parks and largest layout was sold out when i purchased it. There is not only Sri Kristal, but also other apartments as well and outside there might not enough space for parking. Hope that Farlim group will build more carparks. The second problem is traffic jam. I am working in Bayan Lepas industrial area, it won't consider too far from Farlim, but just traffic problem will take more time to my company, sigh...

 
May 16, 2008 at 7:45 PM Anonymous said...

I have same concern as i'm work in Bayan Lepas FTZ as well. However,my unit is come with 2 car park and largest layout (886 sft), hence no parking issue hehe ^_^ No choice , we need to wake up a bit early ...BTW any block A purchaser here ? if u dun mind please share out current status ,the whole block seems completed , when obtain OC and finish extention ?

i heard that this apartment buil at slope. It's safety??

Many apartment in Penang was build in slope ; Furthermore , the land in Farlim is very suitable and strong enaugh for high rise building construction , no need to worry ... Remember , this is not dump site reclaim land ...

Hi, anonymous above Block A owner with 2 car parks and working in Bayan Lepas FTZ, which company are you working in? Might same com[any with you, hehe....I didn't have luck as you since you got 2 car parks. I bought Block B and need to wait til next year only completed. Now my mind just thinking of how to renovate my house, like wiring, painting, kithcen cabinet etc. I am nos start doing some survey although my house stil got more than 1 year to be completed, hehe...Really can't wait to move in liao...

Anybody knows whether the facilities will be available after both blocks completed or once block A obtained the OC?

 
May 19, 2008 at 10:51 PM wahpin@gmail.com said...

I bought Block B 19th Corner with 168K. anybody knows if we can do renovation ourself?

shall we org a committee.

how do you think?

 
May 19, 2008 at 11:09 PM Anonymous said...

Hi WahPin,
Of course needs to do renovation ourself, just depends how big renovation you want to do. Like wiring, if the outlet/socket provided is not enough for you, then you need to add yourself. Kitchen cabinet, gate, paint work etc, also needed to be settled by ourself where we can find contractor/interior designer ourself. For me, got a lot of renovation things in my mind, just not ehough budget to do all in one time, mostly will done partially first since it is hard for me to collect such big amount of money for 1 and half year. We can share our opinion about this later when our block almost completed next year. FYI, i bought a unit in Block B 21st floor, then we will be neighbour that time ^.^(although not same floor)

Hi WahPin,
Add in one more thing here, you can find contractor urself fro the renovation, but you need to buy cement/lime etc if your renovation works involve such materials.

WW

 
May 20, 2008 at 9:48 AM wahpin said...

Hi WW,
Thanks for info. collecting a big sum of money also a big pain for me. Thank you to be my neighbour as well.
If you know supplier for renovation material in PG, do not hesitate to inform me.
1 thing to remind, never buy furniture in Penang Island. there are a lot of furniture factories at Prai and may be we could get a better price there. think about it.

 
May 20, 2008 at 11:18 AM Anonymous said...

Hi wahpin,
Just want to correct my above statement:
"you can find contractor urself for the renovation, but you need to buy cement/lime etc from Farlim Group (or supplier provded by them) if your renovation works involve such materials."
This is what Farlim Group's stuff told me.
About the renovation, i just do some survey but won't so fast to decide which supplier/contractor will be used since our house still needs more than 1 year to be completed. However, if got good and cheap one, i will inform you by sending the mail to you or post here.
I agree with you that furniture is cheaper in Prai and i have the same plan as you if can't get cheap price in penang island. However, for electricity items like washing machine, water heater, refrigerator etc, better bought in penang island (better near our house) since it is easier to be fixed if got pb and is still under warrantly. Opposite Farlim Sunshine got SenHeng, you can consider about it (It is more valuable to apply their member card with only RM12 if you want to buy a lot of things there since got discount with member card)

 
May 20, 2008 at 7:46 PM wahpin said...

ShenHxng?
last week I was visiting there for an Air cond. Pxnxsonic Inverter. they sell RM1399, SXC sell RM1349, JJ sell RM1299. if buy that model in member day (JJ) , -5%. how do you think the price in ShenHxng? how much discount for member?

I have no idea about the renovation material if must buy from farlim group or their supplier. Some material like cement, sand...that's fine for me.

feel free to email @gmail.com
:)

 
May 20, 2008 at 11:58 PM WW said...

Hi wahping,
I not sure about the price. For the discount, it depends on what item, what brand and what model. But i think the shop is quite convenient and eay for us coz it is near to Sri Kristal. But anyway, you still can do survey on other shops which is also near by. Ok, i will send you any updated email on Sri Kristal and renovation/funiture. you can also email me, wweiy82@hotmail.com

Hello , anyone know how their going to perform extension job after OC obtaine ? how soon it can can be complete ? all the while Farlim only provide me one ugrade voucher , is it mean we dun have right to choose for contrator ?

 
May 28, 2008 at 1:49 AM RomeoMustDiet said...

Hi hi, im a buyer of block A. Actually now all the units are built with the same size. Upon OC obtained, Farlim will extend the units based on the size we bought i.e 750sq ft, 862 sq ft & 886 sq ft. The voucher given actually does not serve any purpose as it is for the extension of the unit i.e. from the original size to the size of the units we bought. December can move in?? Will it be that fast Farlim will complete the extension of all units? Anybody hve info when can we move in?

 
May 29, 2008 at 11:33 AM chansala said...

i'm one of the buyer of this project. i bought one unit in Block B.Well according to the developer, the block B will be copmleted by Dec and the extension will take approx 3 to 4 months which in another word it means that only by march or april we can move in.

 
May 29, 2008 at 12:37 PM WW said...

Hi chansala,
You mean block B will be completed by Dec 2008 or Dec 2009?

 
May 29, 2008 at 12:40 PM WW said...

Hi soon huat,
It is a good idea to have maintenance committee. I will consider to involve in it if i have time. So you want to becomes the chair person for this committee?

 
May 29, 2008 at 2:39 PM Anonymous said...

Hi WW,
Block B will be completed by this year Dec (2008) and the extension will complete by march/april 2009.
This is what i heard from the sales guy ( zamri). Do include in the mailing list for the renovation. I'm intrested too. my email add is chandrax8@hotmail.com

 
May 29, 2008 at 6:48 PM wahpin said...

Hey Chandra, I have included you in our mail list.
Different people got their own story from the Farlim group sales department. Ms Law told me the building(Block B) will be completed in July/Aug 2009. (My opinion: They have to work faster before the steel and others building material increase until the crazy level). Once the OC obtained, the extending job would be complete in Nov/Dec. Everybody will get in this building and do their own like renovation estimated before CNY 2010.(God, hopefully they will pass the key a few months faster. before HariRaya 2009 if possible)

 
May 29, 2008 at 7:52 PM WW said...

So what is the actual date will Block B be completed and finish extension?So when both of your heard from the Farlim group stuff?

When i paid the deposit 2 months ago, Miss Law did told me that we will get our house key around mid of 2009, and only can move in at the end of 2009. But once we obtained the key, we need to start pay the maintenance fees even we still can't move in.

 
May 31, 2008 at 2:47 PM wahpin said...

damn...the maintenance fees need to be paid while get the key? em..mid of 2009 is good also...I can't wait to move in. But, let see how's the environment while Block A resident moving in.

 
May 31, 2008 at 11:18 PM Anonymous said...

I warmly request and strongly highlight to maitainance office, they need to be reconsider installing proximity card access system for the old condominium project. They have to improve maintainance service to gain more confidence from existing residents. This will indirectly pull up Farlim Group reputation and sales..

 
June 2, 2008 at 2:26 PM JY said...

Hi wahpin & gang,

I'm also a Block B'er...14th floor.
So glad to see you guys setting up a committee even before the block is completed!..Please included me in your mailing list. My email address is jamesybl@yahoo.com

 
June 2, 2008 at 4:12 PM WW said...

Hi JY,
Welcome to join us. We will send any update information regarding Sri Kristal, renovation etc to each other through email. You can update to us if you got any latest information.

Hi guys,
Will Farlim Group office still open on Saturday or Sunday? If i got time, might go to ask got any updated information from them regarding OC and other things?

Really can't wait to move in, but still need to wait til next year. Actually is not bad for me that Block B will only be completed by next year, can give me some time to save money for renovation. Now really got no money to do renovation. hehe....

 
June 2, 2008 at 5:36 PM JY said...

Hi WW,

Thanks! Any info/updates i'll share with you all.

Farlim office is closed on Sunday since last week, but Saturday still open. I passed by the site yesterday...the arch and security post is completed, the car park is already painted. I think block B reaches 14th floor d...can't wait!!

 
June 3, 2008 at 10:53 AM wahpin said...

Hi James,
Welcome to board.
Isn't it block B construct until 15th floor? :)
I guess they are busy with building the facilities therefore Block A residents could be obtained OC in time? If I'm the developer, i will try to finish the building ASAP. Do you know why? cement, steel and labour charge (the cost) has been increased to the crazy level. The Farlim Group President Tan Sri Lim need to keep his good name, whatever he has promised, he will do it. Now, getting block A finished in time is priority. Correct me if i'm wrong.

 
June 3, 2008 at 4:16 PM Anonymous said...

Yes , i agree with u .
Base on my observation (Block B) , they can built abt 2 floor/month ;However,recently the progress became a bit slower .I guess this is due to they are more focus on block A and facilities floor to ensure it's OC can obtain in time . FYI i own a unit at block B 22 floor .

June 3, 2008 at 4:33 PM chandra said...

hi all,

i just simply called Farlim group today to find out when will block B will complete and according to them it iwll complete by end of next year which mean December 2009.
Can anyone go to Farlim group office and clarify this since we are getting different date of completion? really frust la

 
June 6, 2008 at 11:49 AM Anonymous said...

We cannot do anything , developer have their right to complete any high rise project in 3 years time , thus still consider "in schedule" for blk B even complete by end/2009 . During i purchase Sri Kristal on March 07 properties fair , they promise that both block will complete at the same time , but now ... :( Anyhow , with considering the continuous price increase of construction stuff , i believe Farlim Group will complete it ASAP to prevent further loss ; So we just keep follow up the progress !

YS

 
June 6, 2008 at 12:40 PM WW said...

Hi YS,
My unit just one floor lower than yours. It is good for you to have a 2 car parks, i just have 1 carpark, sigh. When i bought it, all the units at 22 floor already sold out, nothing can do and i don't like the top floor(23). So what is your type of unit? Corner unit? 886sqf unit? or 862sqf unit?

 
June 6, 2008 at 4:46 PM Anonymous said...

My first choice is A-A type corner unit but unfortunately it was completely sold out for all floor , so i take largest unit 886 sft with 2 car park ... i oso dun prefer top floor :) However, i dun mind to accept it if lucky enough to win the grand price ( guess it should be unit from 23rd floor ) by Win-Home-contest ... hehehe ...

 
June 6, 2008 at 7:56 PM wahpin said...

Hey YS, James, WW, Chandra, Soon Huat and All SK folks,
Good day to you.

Chandra, No worry about the date we can get our key. for a Win win solution, Farlim will completing this project ASAP per YS.

WW, is there any chance we buy extra car park? Just want to buy one extra to rent it out. I'm future in Law house just near by, 1 @ 2 car parks is fine for me.

YS, welcome to board.
what I'm worry, the renovation cost will definitely Increase. What a sigh...

 
June 9, 2008 at 9:29 PM WW said...

Hi wahpin,
I don't think we got chance to buy extra car park, unless got ppl want to sell their car park. I also plan to buy extra car park if got chance and also got $$$. Now petrol price increase, materials price increase, which means we need to put more $$$ on our house renovation. Really afraid next yeasr can't get enough money for renovation. If really like that, might just do some basic renovation then just move in

 
June 10, 2008 at 9:22 AM wahpin said...

WW,
I just think about kitchen, Gate for main door and a window, ceiling + down lights, painting (some of the work I can DIY like lighting and paint - 10K). Electrical + furnitures (25K).
Hopefully the cost still within my budget in 2010.
About the car park, 1 is enough for me. My gf's house just nearby, I can park over there if I have extra car.

 
June 10, 2008 at 10:53 AM MS said...

Hi all , i'm just found this blog, Seems like a lot of Sri Krystal buyer is here. i'm one of the buyer also... Block A , 7th floor, the 1 that i bought is facing Sri Impian. My unit is around 75% completion. Heard that Block A will get the key some where around Sept-Oct'08, then O.C will get after 1 month they pass us the key, after get the O.C will take another 3 months time for the final extension work. so prabably by end of this yr we shud able to start for the renovation ady..

 
June 10, 2008 at 1:33 PM WW said...

Hi MS,
If you start get your key on Sep-Oct 2008 until the extension finish, the time taken is around 4-5 months? Then you can only start to do your renovation on Jan-Feb 2009, is it? How you said you can start do your renovation at the end of 2008? When and form who you heard that?

 
June 10, 2008 at 2:50 PM Anonymous said...

Hi all , anyone of you have chance to walk into the project site and take the photo ? I mean inside the house / facilities floor ... Base on progress observed externally , i dun think it can complete by this sept ... I'm wonder how's the progress inside the building ...

Hi WW,
I call the farlim office yesterday and the person who incharge this project told me that...if she also say that if everything go smoothly...for block A buyer...we shud able to start the renovation by end of this yr.

Halo to all neighbours,

Well I bought block B 13th floor RM168K. With the recent increase in cement and steel price, the market value is going to appreciate by roughly 20K(speculated), that means my unit now is RM188K.

Pity for those who haven't bought their own property, i'm expecting all other new projects are going to have some significant price hike.

just left 80 years leased althrough not completed? if like that, then it is not worth, as you will hard to get a buyer if you intend to sell next time, due to hard to get 90% loan if the leased year only left 60-70 years. the price will depreciate according to years left.

Hi WahPin,

I bought the 886sft unit facing Penang Hill, can't remember what AA or EE lah, all the document were kept by my girlfriend!! haha

By the way, i'd like to correct my statement, the market appreciation should be around 20-30% and not RM20k, let's hope it's true.

Saw someone commented about lease hold. Well, for me, it's just my first house, so it's ok. Price will depreciate over-time, but there will always be buyers, the MARKET is big.

Nowadays to find affordable and penny worthy(free-hold plus strategic) property in Penang Island has became hard; Unless if you are rich, but i'm not, i'm just a 'Da Kong Cai'.

Hi Sri Krystal owners,

I just discovered this blog and very happy to see there are so many buyers of this apartment!! Fyi, I bought Blk A, 21st flr.

I read thr. all the comments and found out a number of points and we have to address and sort it out. Hope you guys will take your sweet time to read and feedback.

Good points:
1) this project have the attractive facilities whereby cann't find in Farlim. Hope Farlim will keep their promise.

2) The price is reasonable, shall I say that??, with such design & facilities :)

3) Well, to alot of ppl the location is very convenient and close to all kinds of shops & areas(name it, you hv it)

4) is well connected with all kinds of transport and main roads.

5) good view to all of ppl but might one is facing Sri Impiana. I choose facing inside is due to pricing issue, didn't face the main road (sound pollution), face sun rise which can enjoy morning sun light! Those who face sunset will going to have hot living area (..believe me) unless you fix air con :)

6)...etc..cann't think of at the moment :) or probably you can add on.

Worry points:

Personally, I do like to raise up some concerns whereby all of us need to consider and push Farlim to improve on it so that we have a better and peaceful life style!!

1) as notice from previous comments - Maintenance of the apartment raise the biggest concern of all the buyers of Farlim's properties. My gf also stay in apartment built by Farlim group, think shld be 10 yrs ago, but the maintenance....oh is horror..never repaint, standard of security guide also not good (few robbery cases happen in the apartment areas!!) and quite dirty as well although somebody will clean it 1/2 times aday. No more facilities available after a few years :(

2) Car sticker!! Halo excuse! Nowsaday, most of the newly build high rise building already incorporated with auto entry key card instead of using old fashion car sticker! As I notice from other apartment that practice such sticker will have problem to illegal car entry. Unless the security guide really scan thr all vehicles b4 entry.

3) Visitors car park - I am not sure are there any visitor car park available inside the compound. If yes, then I prefer Farlim can arrange it next/near to the visibility of the security house! Those cars without sticker (hope will change to key card) must register with guide house (as practise by most apartment) before enter. Once registed they only allow to park at the designated areas as mentioned above.

4) Flyer distributors - Yeah!! New offer again! Well, I believe most of us want to save a penny with current high cost of living. Do you notice that if we simply allow the 'flyer distributors' enter and stuck your mailbox with all sort of papers, etc. this will create more rubbish at the lobby! Suggestion: We only allow them to left their flyer at guide house and them handover to all owners whenever they back home.

5) Renovation - For extra renovation works that all of us intend to carry out after completion we have to let the illegally appointed constrator to handle. As I understand from my friend, they will charge higher than market price and the quality also not up to standard! Why we have to dig a big whole into our pocket?why we cann't choose our own contractor? even Farlim group cann't help us cos they are "gangster" in that area!! Fyi, I even sent an email (general i think) to ex-CM, Mr.Koh and as well as current PIC of property related issues of PG. but no feedback totally :( such a shame...I think the only solution is we have to gather/group together and have a meeting with all relevant parties to settle the issues if they charge excessively!

Finally, finish my feedback :) I am searching for furniture & renovation contractor as well so hope you guys can give me some update where to get good products with affordable price.

my contact is chinatownlsh@gmail.com

 
July 1, 2008 at 4:52 PM Anonymous said...

that is normal to have gangters in low cost apartment.after OC obtained, they will put a table at entry and monitor all the renovation progress. if you choice to use outside constructor, u need to buy brick/sand/pump from they whih is 2X of original price. worst case, they will ask for angpau few hundred before your outside constructor start work. if you guys know the solution to solve it. please post here. thanks.

 
July 1, 2008 at 7:19 PM chinatownlsh said...

ops...mistake mine is 20th flr instead :)

Everybody also said it is normal ...so that's why they (gangster) take advantage against us (buyers)!!! We must act and unite to 'fight' with them. We also earn for living and why we have to bear this unneccesary cost!! WHY?? YB are you blind?? cann't you see we suffer over here!!

Do keep me in the loop for any info regarding furniture, kitchen renov. & etc.... to chinatownlsh@gmail.com

Do you all think that this property can obtain the OC on time??

 
July 15, 2008 at 4:40 PM Anonymous said...

I went to the site yesterday , i dun think blk A can obtain the OC by this sep/oct...main problem is the crane for Blk B is block them to built the road from car park link to main exit...How to get the OC if the main road is not ready ? In order to remove the crane and resume the road job , they must complete the Blk B first ... Blk B is 17 floor now , estimated another 3 months time to reach the top floor ... i guess OC for Blk A is E/08 (not include extension work) ; and Blk B will be some where around M/09 ...

I got call up the sales office asking about when the Block A and Block B will be in completion, the salesman answer is Blk A will get OC on Aug' 08 but extension work need 2-3months time after OC so means that Blk A resident should able to move in only end of yr 2008

 
July 16, 2008 at 9:11 AM WW said...

Is it we will get our house key once the OC is obtained? That means we need to start pay maintenance fees even we are not allow move in, right? Sigh, we need to pay extra $$ before move in. If extnsion work take more time, then i need to pay more since i am now rent a room.....

Hi, i'm a buyer of Block A 5th flr unit (facing Sri Impain). Got good news to share with you all. I just call Farlim office yesterday, they told me that Block A buyer will get the key by next month.

The area started to get dirty with residents throwing whatever, except heavy objects lah...below. guess there are still UNCIVILLISED PEOPLE around. Furthermore, the management only wants money but less action, especially with parking. With touch n go, cars still can be parked at any empty space. Regret buying my apartment.

hi all apartment residents!! In order to resolve the illegal parking issues in the apartment, you may suggest and force your management to use locking system. They are authorise to lock the tyre of those cars that park illegally and car users have to pay fine in order to unlock their car! I believe this might be effective way to resolve the problem :)

Farlim management should change in attitude otherwise, history could repeat itself. Sri Kristal is the last project in Farlim, and if the management don't live up to purchasers expectation, then, it's done. So; it's either change the management or change the manager!! My opinion, change the manager as he is not performing well.

how much price you guys bought this unit? if over 200k then why not consider the landed property in Balik Pulau town, it cost 300k~350k for the new double story house 20'x70'with free hold. May some body saying that it's too far from town but what i can tell that the double story house price that located near to the new market & Jalan Pondok Upeh has up ~30%.

I also agree to form a strong committee for SK. Since block A owner will move in much earlier than Block B owner, how to form a committee? Want to have sepearate committee for each block? Or combine both? I myselves of course prefer the second which combine both. But who want to incharge of it?

I don't think committee is an issue as compare to Parking space. Whoever bought the unit,i believe u been there recently. don't u see cars park all over the road?? this is an headache issue especially those only hv 1 car park.
Second hand market price more than 200k....possible??? how long???
how many other apartments surrounded it??? do u feel that it's too clouded??? With such a small area, can the construction affected the road or residence in front???

 
August 28, 2008 at 9:26 PM Anonymous said...

For the purposes of own living was a good ideal if compared to really wanted to be an investment, if SK price increased in future, there willl be a better option added, if a person really wanted to make it as an investment purposes, he or she will not select an apartment to buy, the best choice is go for a landed properties if investment will be the 1st issues. Farlim making this new apartment at this price was quite acceptable for a small family living, as earlier said, Penang properties now are too expensives to be purchased, and its not worth of buying an apartment or condo with too expensive price, for me , no matter how much does an apartment or condo cost you, a high rise building is always a failure option compared to a landed properties. buying sri kristal at this pricing are much better than any other new project in penang island.i mean for high rise building. thats why you better invest your money into landed properties much better than a high rise building. always dun put too much money to throw into apartment or condo, they charged at monthly maintenance fees even after you die.also will be added in interest charged on you if you failed to pay the monthly maintenance in time
so, think before you buy, for an investment purposes or own living.

Totally agree. Landed property is more suitable for investment. However, landed property also can't give u good return for investment as interest earn by bank is huge. Unless we have enough cash for this kinds of investment.

Put the money invest on apartment is not a good idea as you can see it's so many high rise building in Penang, in every where! I don't think it will give you a good return!For those who bought for self living is ok. For long term, landed property still be the first choice, no matter for living or investment, the price will appreciate more and faster than high rise building. I'm living in the apartment which bought in the last 10 years, the price only appreciate about 30% from my purchased price.
(3%/year, it's lower than bank's FD)

I have just bought a new DST (OC obtained) in Balik Pulau in Jalan Pondok Upeh which near to the Balik Pulau new market, it's just about 1KM distance. Just 4 months, the house price already appreciate for 10%. actually it's >30% if base on the launching price in the last 2 years. Don't need to pay the monthly fee, now every things' pricing is going up, we have to save what ever we can even 1 cent, no car park problem, no elevator break down problem.....and many more. For those guys who planning to invest the propety for own living, landed property will be the first choice. You will not regret at all.

If really wanna to invest in real estate, better invest in rural area. I hv info for a bungalow with less than 300k. Believe?? But before consider it, make sure you guys have enough cash...if not, all your hardwork will go to bank's interest.

there some of Feng Shui Tips on How to Choose an Apartment Buildingi can give to you. Theres still a long roads to learn for the feng shui. like eight mansion, flying star location for period of eight...etc

1.Square, oblong, round or pa-kua (eight-sided) buildings are propitious. Try to avoid moving into an irregular-shaped building, because it symbolizes incompleteness. An L-shaped building, for example, gives an impression that something has been missing or cut off.


2.The back of your apartment building should be protected in some way, either by a hill or another building. A solitary apartment building on top of a hill, according to feng shui practice, is extremely inauspicious as it is completely unprotected. The wind will blow the chi away, and the water will drain the chi downhill.


3.Other buildings nearby and surrounding should be lower or about the same height as your apartment building. A much taller neighboring structure can cause negative chi, especially if it is situated in front of your apartment building's main entrance.


4.The parking area, according to most feng shui gurus, should not be a part of the building itself, unless it is located underground. Ideally, it should be outside the building, because vehicles coming in and out can create too much chi and turbulance to the occupants.


5.Every building, from a feng shui perspective, should have a back door. Remember that the heart of feng shui is to allow chi to flow conveniently. When the chi enters through the front door, there should be an exit for it to go out so that more chi can come in.


6.In feng shui tradition, water is believed to bring wealth and good fortune. If your apartment building is located near a lake or river, that is considered extremely auspicious. This belief, however, is not only applied to natural sources of water. A pond, fountain or swimming pool, especially if it is situated near the main entrance of the building, is supposed to bring good luck as well.

Good luck for apartment hunting! note(landed properties is always better feng shui compared to apartment, if one day getting rich, must go for landed properties better)

oops! there one more importance thing to remember, always find the best feng shui place are more better than to cure it later with renovation, throw aways those old minded thinking example put a (bak kua)..4th floor is the bad floor (die floor) those are believing while not related to feng shui study at all, if 4th floor was a good feng shui for you , why not go for that.right? good location with good feng shui is the most importance criteria. for me, good is good, bad is always bad, bad feng shui apartment is always a bad feng shui apartment no matter how much $$ you throw out for renovation.

Hi Neigbours... I will be living in B-9 unit hopefully by early 2010. I've been hearing some pretty ugly stuff from my friends who are staying in Impian bout the Gangster Cons who she had to deal with to get her own grills. She finally gave up and bought a shoddy job from them for almost 1.5 times the price. Isn't there something we can do!!!???
Another thing would be SK's so called condo facilities might just end up as Ivory and Impians comunity pool if security is not taken care of properly. We should really get the ball rolling on the committee set up thingy
:) cheers

Hello,

I will be living in Block A 21st floor. About the "pretty ugly stuff" do we need to buy the renovation stuff from the gangster? Wondering how can the management let them in?
Hope everything turn out to be nice.

 
October 1, 2008 at 12:08 PM wahpin said...

I'm not sure, I'll report to police if someone propose me his idea if i'm not taking his package of renovation, then i have to pay him ang pao or "cleaning fees".
and I will work with state government also. call YB Yeoh. Just tell him we will change our IC to Paya Terubong area, we have 400++ votes in our resident area. He has to do something.
no point that I have friends and relatives do renovation and I also know some got to waste money on that.

Hi all, actually those gangster(black market bussinessman) was having a legal contract with FARLIM that this project of renovation will be uphold by them while this situation was also agreed between FARLIM management and them, some of them (gangster) will having a one year contract with developer while some will having two years, its depending, so for those like us if required to renovated house once the house was ready, people like us just got 2 choice, 1 was direct let them renovation house for you and 2 is have to or forced to buy all the renovation material directly from them with double charged price $$$ (this is for the poeple who wanted to find thir own people to renovation their house). I ever asked a police on this situation, the police told me as they were legal contractor and having also contract with FARLIM or those IDIOT developer, nothing they (police) can do about it, so either you just let them charged you to do all the renovation for you or buy double price material from them, all was same, soon, you will found out your cost for renovation will be much much higher than let them do for you if you find your own contractor outside.haizz...so...my suggestion is if all of you like to save a lot in your own renovation, you all must only wait for them (gangster) contract to be end then only can find your own contractor and buy your own better price material. but this will have to wait for many years...

 
October 6, 2008 at 12:25 PM Kumar said...

Calvin is right. I checked wz some guys in state sec office who bought homes around here. They said apparently the business (black market contractors) are legal... so neither the police or the gov will get involved. Btw i heard keys for B Block will be handed over sometime in march or april 09... true??

apa pun tak ada.

 
October 9, 2008 at 11:24 AM YS said...

Okay thanks for the update. Base on current progress , it's a doubt now whether Blk A can obtain OC by this year ... As i mentioned before , they need to complete the Blk B first then only can remove the crane and continue to build the main exis road . Considering Blk B reach top by e/this month , only 2~3 month left to complete the multilevel carpark and main exis road ? Farlim is definately running out of time ... Let's hope everything is going smooth.

Cheer~

October 10, 2008 at 4:05 PM Jaymes Yap said...

Guys,

Do you realise that both our blocks are "numbered" already?
Block 6 and Block 8 respectively. I assume Block A is Block 6 and Block B is Block 8.
Not bad...Fatt!!

 
October 10, 2008 at 6:56 PM ammy said...

great ! Number 6 and 8 are good numbers for feng shui. hehehe....

Hi Chinatown,

sorry for late replying you, for apartment house, your balconi will be your facing direction while your apartment main door will be your sitting direction. lets take an example of my unit balconi faced Kek lok si, my facing direction will be northwest while sitting direction will be sitting southeast. If your unit of apartment faced Sri Impian, it will be opposition, facing southeast sitting northwest. ( house faced northwest sitting southeast was a Xun Gua and belongs to east group house ). ( house faced southeast sitting northwest was a Qian Gua and belongs to west group house ) by using the formula calculation of eight mansions life gua, you can know your own personal gua number to determined you weather east group or west group people. ( gua number 1,3,4 and 9 was east group ) ( gua number 2,6,7 and 8 was west group )you can always go to ( http://www.wofs.com/index.php?option=com_custompages&Itemid=81 ) using lilian too gua calculator to calculate your personal gua. more easy.

 
October 13, 2008 at 8:56 AM chinatown said...

TQ calvin. Btw, Blk A is 8 and Blk B is 6!!
But number is irrelevant to fend shui and is just for ur own 'entertainment' :)

 
October 13, 2008 at 8:48 PM calvin said...

Hi Chinatown,

Yes, u r right, there were many thing like what kind of picture you like to hang inside your living room wall ...etc..those are believing by our chinese people, those were bad culture that most of the chinese like to linked up related it to feng shui. In classical feng shui, the most concerned is the location,direction,surrounding and lucky stars location for the period of 8. always never add in those believing in feng shui.

lucky draw start when?
i receive letter from farlim for acknowledgement for entranry for lucky draw..u all receive d letter?

 
October 22, 2008 at 12:06 AM Mah said...

From starting onwards, mgt to emphasis on promt maintenance fees for no delay for apartment maintenance....hence the owner need to cooperate to pay on time or early....like give some incentives for early bird paying...learn from maxis how they treat the early bird...like give rm5 discount provide u paid early for at least 3 month ...or even can charge to credit card for auto debit monthly maintenance charge....more easy...now a day everyone osos have credit card ma easy.....promt pay will secure the mgt with resources n hence no delay for any repair....

Option....to learn from other success management office Kheng Tian Apartment , Perak Road Jelutong. or
even outsource to other capaable mgt ppl whose specilise in this matter to proper take care of maintenance in that area.

attn...develop dont look for short-term $....do something to built ur brand name, IMPROVE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION....this will uphold the developer status to next level...hence the consumer oso happy.

If customer satisfaction...learn from Air Asia....

Now a day, most consumer able to pay.....expect for better living area...PLS DO SOMETHING TO CHANGE and pls learn from previous mistake did in past (ie. Sri Impian)other sri kristal will end up with .....same as sri impian

hi Mah,

unfortunately, the lucky already over few weeks ago. nobody attended the draw because there was no open event held by Farlim. they only invited local reporters as withness during the draw. Yet, there was no result publish in local newspaper and no result send out any of us except winners, i believe. conclusion, nobody know how fair the draw is!!!

 
October 22, 2008 at 9:49 AM chinatown said...

Mah,

i also notice there is only 1 unit with special extension at balcony. Personally, i feel there is not nice :)...i still prefer what we have at the moment...ya is true the steel is bit ugly but good way to 'catch' good air flow...good feng shui then...

regarding the management side, we (residents) really need to form a committee and fight for our rights with the management Company. Hurray!!

 
October 23, 2008 at 8:56 AM ys said...

Regarding lucky draw ; Actually they did publish it on newspaper , it's about 1 month ago in "Kwang Min Jit Poh" . I 4got the house winner name ( confirmed is Chinese ) but sadly is wasn't me :(

 
October 23, 2008 at 1:20 PM chinatown said...

oh ys,

October 23, 2008 at 7:50 PM ystan said...

Hey Chinatown , sorry but i'm really cannot remember it...I suggest u contact Farlim to enquiry the result , good luck huh ^_^ dun forget to buy me a dinner if u r the lucky winner ...

 
October 24, 2008 at 8:47 AM chinatown said...

ystan, no need to dream already la :( if i kena then oledy received their letter!

btw, you bought which blk & flr?

 
October 24, 2008 at 3:15 PM ystan said...

Block B 22 Flr ... The only reason i choose 22 floor is because of free 2 car park ^_^

 
October 25, 2008 at 10:47 AM Fenny said...

ystan,
that is not free, you'd paid for it...your unit consider "penthouse" (just extra car park)
extra car park 12-13K, isn't it?
