    Sound-proofing a HDB room?

    I was shopping around for a resale HDB housing and came across a flat which was quite ideal except for its close proximity to an MRT rail-line. I am wondering if it is possible to sound-proof a bedroom so that the passing train would not disturb my sleep. How much would it typically cost and is it effective? Would appreciate if you could share your experience.
  2. Dear Forumers Too many analysis on the COE trend with all kind of theory, assumptions and predictions. I would think the best is still for Forumers who patronized the car showroom to share and upload 1st hand information probably with photos, crowd condition, sale condition etc of each AD in systematic way. With the real field situation, it will be more useful for everyone to know how likely hood the demand of COE in coming months. Any suggestions?

    Escape Room

    just went to a escape room game at Peace Centre with my family over the weekend. First time experienced such a game and was quite impressed with the implementation of tech stuff/gadgetry such as RFID, laser lights etc, some of it makes me feel like I am in a movie. The staff are also helpful to provide clues anytime we are stuck at a puzzle as long as we ask. They even came in to guide us on 2 of the puzzles. Some other place states that only one clue will be given per game. Still it was actually quite expensive, almost $30 per head for a stipulated game time of 1hr (Later I realized this is almost the standard price for peak hours, off-peak will be cheaper). Luckily for us, the next game slot was not taken and we could play for another 30mins, though we were still stuck in the room at the end and the staff had to come in to get us out!!! I must say that I am interested to visit again and a search on the web showed that there are easily around 10 or so such places in operation, really spoiled for choice to decide which one to visit next. Anyone has any good experience of escape rooms to share?

    Partitioning a room

    anyone partitioned their common bedroom before ? i am thinking of partitioning my common room of my 3NG flat... actually quite small already by itself into two smaller "rooms", separated by a drywall or some sort of partition with a sliding door. each smaller room should be able to just house a bed and one more small cupboard. before you jump the gun on rental, i am considering this because my father requires home nursing due to a sickness and i am considering hiring a stay-in caregiver for him as he has slight difficulties in moving around by himself. so the room will be split in half - one for him and the other half for the caregiver. so anyone got lobang or suggestions ?
  6. hi guys. i need some recommendations for electrician to help to install tv points in room. i asked one that quoted me $130 per point. is that the market rate? thanks in advance
  7. As if the infrastructure of the MRT is not sufficient, our Hospital infrastructure is also painfully inadequate Let me cite an example. If you have a family emergency in the west, the nearest hospital is Ng Teng Fong Hospital. While that is true, it then gets complicated. It is broken down into specialities. So while its true you got to the hospital in the nick of time, you again need to be transferred to another hospital. So driving as fast as possible to the hospital is one thing. Getting the right skill and attended to is another. Now comes the complexity. After being treated, the patient will be moved to yet another hospital at A&E to transfer to the right specialist with the right kungfu. Still not an issue. Issue here is transferring to the hospital is another 25 mins. Then at the same sibling cluster like NUH, the specialist will again attend to the patient. Another half an hour. Still not an issue. The real issue here is the Specialist need to book the operating theatre which is shared by other equally important cases to be treated. So while the patient may have arrived in time. The facilities is really CMI Minimum waiting time to have an available operating theatre depends on the A&E load and the schedule at that time. So my best guess is 2 to 3 hours max from the time the doc says ok, I know what to do? Not necessary. From the near estimate, it can range from anything up to 6 to 8 hours. I was just thinking to myself. Yes, now is require surgery already so long. WHAT IF its a brain haemorrhage or worst, life-critical condition or when face with the golden hour of fixing things up because as the hr pass, the chances of full recovery slips.? Obviously, hospital care is like buying a refrigerator or washing machine. You not too bothered about the price. You probably worried the time it is available or the efficiency when you need it. But, this is really an appalling state that we are struggling with and need to be quickly sorted out. I would say, forget about the 6.5 million population. Settle the immediate need first to cater for the 4 million population before the floodgate is open.
  8. A student studying at the National University of Singapore (NUS) fell eight stories to her death after trying to get into her residential hall room from a window. According to a report in The New Paper (TNP), the 18-year-old South Korean had locked herself out of her room on the seventh storey of Block C of Sheares Hall on Saturday (28 Oct). The Singapore Police Force (SPF) told Yahoo News Singapore it was alerted to a case of fall from height at 20 Heng Mui Keng Terrace at 11:38am on 28 October. “An 18-year-old woman was unconscious when conveyed to the National University Hospital where she subsequently succumbed to her injuries,” said SPF. Police are investigating the unnatural death. The residents were informed by email of the tragic event on Saturday afternoon. One resident told TNP that a wake was held for the student on Monday evening. https://sg.yahoo.com/news/nus-student-falls-death-locking-room-011752131.html

  10. SINGAPORE — If the nursing homes housing the 5,000 beds the Government wants to add by 2020 are built according to a new model that affords patients more privacy with single and double rooms, it would cost about S$19 million more a year, a study commissioned by two philanthropic foundations has found. This is equivalent to 0.2 per cent of the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) S$11 billion budget for the current financial year, and amounts to each resident paying about S$8 to S$13 more a day from the current daily average cost of S$106.20 per resident. Lien Foundation, which commissioned the study with Khoo Chwee Neo Foundation, shared these figures on Thursday (July 28), with the aim of quantifying the argument for single- and double-bedded nursing homes which feature en suite toilets, communal living and dining areas — a departure from the six- to eight-bed dormitory-style layout that is common here. The foundation has been lobbying for a shift towards nursing homes providing “people-centred” care, an effort that hit a roadblock last year when the MOH said it could not provide subsidies for the proposed Jade Circle home, a joint effort between Peacehaven Nursing Home, the Lien Foundation and Khoo Chwee Neo Foundation. The ministry had said it would not be “financially sustainable” to provide subsidies to patients staying in wards “designed to proxy private or A-class ward configurations”. On Thursday, Lien Foundation chief executive Lee Poh Wah urged the authorities to move away from “archaic” models of nursing care. “The elderly (in Singapore) are stripped of their privacy, dignity and autonomy, and reduced to living a regimen — all in the name of safety and efficiency,” he said. Commenting on the ministry’s decision on Jade Circle, Mr Lee, stressing that they were not asking for additional subsidies, said: “I am completely baffled. Why were we penalised for wanting to care for the poor, for delivering care that far exceeded MOH’s standards?” The additional 5,000 nursing-home beds that the Government aims to build by 2020 provide an opportunity for a new model of care to be introduced, he added. The study, conducted by strategy consultancy Oliver Wyman, sought opinions from geriatricians, nursing-home practitioners, and architects. The cost estimates are based on hypothetical nursing homes with 20 per cent single rooms and 80 per cent double rooms. Homes with only single rooms will cost about 36.8 per cent more, according to the study. Besides infrastructural changes, the model would see a dedicated Senior Care Associate tending to each “household” of up to 10 residents. The associate will engage the residents on daily activities and will be supported by roving teams who provide clinical and nursing support. At the Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home, 56 residents with dementia are currently housed in such a living community, where they are encouraged to make their own decisions, such as choosing activities they wish to take part in. Residents have shown a 30 per cent increase in well-being since moving into the facility in 2006, based on a profiling assessment, said the home’s executive director Low Mui Lang. The study noted that in countries with ageing populations, such as Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States, single and double rooms in homes are already the norm. For instance, residents at the Green House Project in the US live in cottages with private rooms and baths. Those who are able help with food preparation and eat in a communal setting. Unlike the regimented meals in nursing homes, Green House residents are free to choose when to eat. In response to the study, the MOH, which received the report on Wednesday night, said it hopes to discuss the findings with Lien Foundation and understand the assumptions behind the economic analysis. Commenting on the Jade Circle episode, the MOH said it had made various offers to Peacehaven, such as providing financial support if part of the new facility could be converted into four-bedded wards. “Our offers still stand and we look forward to engaging Lien Foundation on experimenting with new models of care for our seniors,” said the MOH. It also pointed to ongoing efforts to try new models, such as the Ang Mo Kio Build-Own-Lease Nursing Home to be operated by Ren Ci, which will have a “cluster concept” of four beds in each room, sharing a common living area. In Financial Year (FY)15, the MOH’s investment in the nursing home sector was estimated at more than S$360 million, including manpower funding and capital investments. In comparison, expenditure in FY11 was around S$100 million, the ministry said. http://m.todayonline.com/singapore/costs-would-rise-least-s8-day-new-nursing-homes-study
