18 Apr 2016 – Weather In SIN & HDB Issues!
Sun: tkx to Calvin at CC for the green bean soup. An hour of cutting for a large bowl of fruit-cocktail was worth the time as it was completely consumed 🙂 The wall-murals are great but will not be able to see them completed before flying off. Looking forward to seeing them when I get back.
Tkx for dropping by Carmel & Catherine who are getting gears for their Camino holidays. Boss himself helping out with foot-wear 🙂
Nice dinner on Queen St and lovely evening stroll by SAM at 8Q. Tkx for good company, Yoshie. Cheerful and colurful benches to rest on too 🙂
Mon: not a good start having to write to HBD because a Mr Lau seemed to have not heard what I said last week and a letter of complain was mailed to me. Sometimes I do wonder if it is a waste of time to talk to certain people as they are not even listening or hearing. Perhaps people like that need their hearing checked.
Boring to many but have to just document this to remind myself that for those people, words in B/W are the only way to communicate!! Thus the email below has been circulated to HDB and cc to NEA highlighting in red-text for them.
Referring to the letter reference dated 12 Apr 2016
6 Apr – received a note regarding the AC. Called to inquire about the situation and was told that the neighbour below complained about my AC leaking.
7 Apr – 0900hrs Mr Lau from Geylang Branch HDB paid a visit to let me know that I needed to place a tray below the AC compressor to avoid it from leaking to the neighbour downstairs. Informed him that I would prefer to talk to my regular AC service people first in spite of his insistence to get the HDB contractor.
Would appreciate pix to document my AC leaking condensation as my contractor has been here and checked on it and have told me that most ACs will have some leaking condensation, especially during these overwhelming hot weather the past few weeks.
Reading the complain received and asking me to refrain from using the AC do make me wonder who will then take care of me, a senior living alone if I had a heat-stroke and fell or fainted and hit my head???
Call it a case of mis-communication or lost in translation but really it has even been difficult for me to try to talk to a person who does not hear or listen. Thus the above email was the best solution to a situation to those who might try to be objective.
This is probably my most words blog posting ever…
