Gas leaking in Riser

There was gas leaking out of my gas riser room outside my flat. I have verified it is not from my cooker as there are no gas smell in the kitchen.

The gas meter is not running when I off the cooker.

I have no alternative but to activate City Gas in the evening. The service team came one hour after the activation. They check with a gas meter and verified it was not from my piping. Their suspicion is from the flat below. The town gas is lighter and will rise up through the ventilation provided in the riser room.

Thus they went to the flat below us to conduct their investigation. The City Gas never update me and I leave it in their good hands.

It is your responsibility to ask for the complete information on the collection procedure for the transcript.

The customer service will inform that you can collect the transcript at the three customer service centres of ITE. But if you never inform them that someone else is doing the collrction on your behalf, then you only have half the information.

Transcript is a control item. You need a authorization letter to collect it on someone else behalf.

Yishun Massive Human Jam

There was a track fault earlier in the morning at Choa Chu Kang according to the PA announcement at Admiralty Station. This had caused the frequency of trains to increase to 5 minutes. I still managed to get on the train at Admiralty. But then you will feel like a sardine after it leave Sembawang station.

The south bound platform form a snakey queue all the way to the north platform.

I was glad that I am exiting the station at this point of time. It is tough for the Yishun residents especially if you are travelling towards the city.

Massive jam at the entrance of Yishun MRT fare gate

The fare gate were reprogram to two entrances only. This is a measure to stem the human traffic flow into the station. But the down side, is a bottle neck will form outside the station.

If you plan to buy your home in Yishun, do give a second thought especially if you are going to use the south platform during peak hours.

Yishun MRT Over Crowding

It is a wet day this morning due to the medium shower. But this impact the efficiency of the south bound train. I still managed to get on my usual train at Admiralty. It stop on the track for at least 4 mins each  before reaching  the Sembawang and Yishun MRT. This will give bigger impact to Yishun MRT.

Train are moving slower due to the wet weather. Isn’t it a familiar announcement?


KTPH July 16 Gardening Day

It is the last week of the month and we return back to the garden to help pluck the weeds. We also help to maintain our hospital rooftop garden where real organic vegetables are plant here.

The team of volunteers who take their precious work time off to weed.

The Run
We went for a run to keep fit after gardening activity

It is really fun working in a hospital as a FM Engineer. Engineers are a small breed in the hospital and I am fortunate to be given a chance to contribute to the public health care industry.

CCS Clearance Session

We get in debts at certain moment of our life due to uncertainty, urgency, lifestyle, family needs and many others. Usually we will not let others know which form part of Asia culture. We may even lose friendship if you try to borrow money from them.

Credit Counselling Singapore was setup with the objectives to get debtors out of the financial crisis. If you are ready down with debts, please consult them early to prevent it getting out of hand.

The 2nd appointment at CCS is the clearance session. You will get a debt management program (DMP) proposal which will be submitted to your creditors, the bank in this case.

The banks will in most cases accept the proposal. The debtors will pay according to the repayment schedule set out in the proposal.  You will start the payment in the calendar month and three working days before the due date.

It is important that you made regular payments before the due date. You are enjoying a very low interest rate and do not give the banks a chance to terminate the DMP.

A DMP status will be logged with the Credit Bureau Singapore (CBS). With the DMP status, you will not be able to apply for any credit card or loan from the banks. You need to informed CCS once full payments had been made in order for them to remove the status from CBS. With the proper discipline, you will be debt free in three to seven years time.

I will talk about the repayment schedule in my next post.
