I Finally Got My Keys...........

A view of Penang bridge from my balcony...............

After waiting for a few months .....i just recently got the keys to my new condo which i love very much because of the lovely view of the sea overlooking the Penang bridge. Besides that it also has a big swimming pool, which i had always dream of having at my doorsteps ever since I was a child. So with the keys on my hand, I gladly drove to this new place as often as possible to swim til my heart's content......massaging myself in the 2 big jaccuzi to relax my tired muscles or to steam myself up in one of the sauna rooms. Here are some pics of my new place..........


The view of the pool from my place......................

Fell in love with this lovely pool...............

There is a tennis court, a bicycle track and a big basketball court (hidden on the right) above the multi level car park for your outdoor activities besides a gym room with the latest machines near the pool.

At present I will be looking out for ideas on how to makeover my new place which is unfurnished at the moment.....things are getting pretty expensive nowadays....and had to look out for cheap bargains too.....the other day i found out that the aluminium grill that i wanted to put up in my front porch cost a whopping 4 k.......any ideas where to get good bargains around this place..?

How nice and I totally love the view. It can have a certain calming effect on the soul. Can't wait for you to finish furnish it so that you can move in and enjoy it to the fullest. That huge swimming pool is definitely a big plus.

Wow! That's a nice condo. I was in Penang last July and was actually going to look for a condo but sprained my leg and didn't get to see much of Penang.... including the Penang Bridge.....

I'm going back though. :)

wahhhh.... my dream house... >.< too expensive to buy at there.. haih.... some more the new condo name platima or something ... also finished selling... swt swt...

Sweet Jasmine said...

hh - yr dream house...? Oh, nevermind you are still young..and you will achieve yr dream one day..."somewhere over the rainbow" you might strike it rich..

Oh is it true ...the new ones coming up next door were already sold out..? I think people book it for investment.. looking at the rapid price increase in the property market in this Island...the seller of my condo got a profit earning of about 100K...just in the 3 yrs since his booking and even when i bought it end of last year...the prices keeps increasing...
