2D1N Valentine’s Day Getaway in Johor City Square

People may envy me that I am working in my boyfriend’s company which I may be able to have my own freedom of time.However, behind the scenes we usually stay in office to work till super late and burn our weekends off.

Most of our time spent together is either working in office or working at home.

This year is our third Valentine’s Day together. I started planning for our Valentine’s Day almost a week in advance.

“Valentine’s  Day Staycation, Valentine’s Day Dinner, Valentine’s Day Oversea Getaway” etc etc. I thought of every single activities that a couple would do together for Valentine’s Day.

In the end, we decided on a 2D1N Getaway in Johor, Malaysia. Away from the crowded Singapore where it so hard to get a place to dine without reervation and where everything were marked up for this day.Other then celebrating Valentine’s Day, this was also a getaway trip for us to rest.

It’s Valentine’s Day, how can I not prepare present for my beloved boyfriend.

Before heading to Johor, I made one of his favorite snack, Muah Chee. Did not expect that the dough came up to be in heart shaped. Perfect for the Valentine Day.

Travelling via Eva Air Hello Kitty Flight had always been my dream and always on my wish list.

Last December, when Eva Air Hello Kitty Flight first flight from Singapore to Taiwan. I was disappointed when I heard the news as I had already booked my Taiwan trip.

My dearest boyfriend had promise to bring me on Hello Kitty Flight the next time when we plan for our future Japan Trip, transiting at Taiwan, just to change to Eva Air Hello Kitty. That’s so sweet of him !

But now, my this little dream can be easily fulfilled.

After dating for almost 2 years , We decided to move towards our second stage of our life together. You may feel that it is too early for us to apply for our flat.

However, we felt that we are the right person for each other. Our love is the only one of the reasons.

Most importantly, It is pretty hard to get a new flat in Singapore. I do have friends who applied for their flat for 4 times and above. They still are unable to get a good queue number through the balloting system. When it reaches their turn, the flats are either all sold out or left with the lowest levels.

Another reason was we need to wait for at least 3 years before the BTO flats are ready for us to move in. Prices for resale flats are way too high for us to afford at the moment.

At first, I almost give up my hope for the March BTO as our queue number was 993. There is only a total of 841 4-rooms flats available across two different parts of Sengkang. Not forgetting about the numbers of applicants, there is a total of 2408 applicants. The numbers were scary !

“Will we get to a chance to choose our future home ?

Lucky, the answer is YES !

Our friends was telling us that we are really lucky that we are able to choose the units on our 1st application.

Indeed we are very lucky !

Lucky to have each other <3

And

Lucky to be able to choose a desire unit from whatever that was left behind.

Now let me introduce my future home and the estate.

In the March BTO, there were a total of 3 different towns avaliable ; Sengkang, Punggol and Bukit Batok.

Under Sengkang, there were two different estates available, “Compassvale Cape” and “Campassvale Helm”

We decided to have our future home to be located in Compassvale Cape as it was just a 5 to 7 minutes walking distant from my future-in-laws ‘s place.

Hoping for the “Stay near parents” government grant so lessen our burden. Sadly to know on the day of application that the grant is only available for re-sale flat.

Coming back to the problem, re-sale flats are so expensive now.

Stay near to parents have it’s own benefits. You can easily go back home for dinner which also mean no cooking need and lesser housework to do. Yeah !!

There not the main reason for us even though partly is. Hehes (:

Compassvale Cape is situated beside my secondary school. I had never expected myself staying near my school. It is 10 minutes walk to the Sengkang MRT which is still acceptable to us.

Here the proposed facilities in the estate. I love the little shopping plaza that will be available. The shopping plaza have make simple grocery shopping and food easier for us.

One thing which I don’t really understand and like is the structure of each individual blocks. There are various slanting units and units which living-room facing other aircon ledge.

Optional Floor Tiles

Non Optional Floor Tiles

If I am able to opt out the kitchen and toilets tiles, I will definitely opt them out. I really does not like the colors.

Overlaying with our desired tiles is the only options we have now.

I opted out the bedrooms door too. The bedroom doors are semi solid and I does not really like the colors too. Most importantly, the doors are prone to permanent scratches.

We are so proud to buy a premium flat with almost nothing build in.
