All Neocyber Domain Owners: Sesi Bantahan Cukai Pintu Tahunan

Dear Fellow Neocyber Domain Owners,
Did you gals and guys send a surat bantahan of the Domain apartment's cukai pintu valued at RM441.00 yearly?

I did and now I got a notice to attend a hearing session on 2 April 2011, Saturday, 1pm at Pejabat MP Sepang.

If you did not receive this letter, I am not sure if you could attend, but I urge you to quickly write in for your protest as well.  There is power in numbers, we can ask for a lower cukai pintu.  You can submit your protest at the website: http://www.mpsepang.gov.my/home, then go to the bottom left, click on e-aduan.  You need to register to use this function, but just submit your protest and hopefully you will get an invitation to attend the session too.  Please support this to lower our maintenance costs. And please share this with other Domain owners that you know.

Klang Valley MRT project

This is a very impressive video created to give us an idea of the stations and stops of the planned MRT project.
I think the MRT project is long overdue, although I do think that it should go underground more than above ground.  And certain high density residential areas are still not covered, like Subang and Subang Jaya.
So if your properties are near the proposed stations, you may be in for greater capital appreciation.

Something exciting is brewing

I am so excited yesterday and today that I cannot sleep. This always happens when I find what I believe is a good deal in property, I act quickly and then because the other party has not said "Deal!" - I'm left in the unknown zone for a day or 2.
Yesterday I've stumbled across my first commercial property.  I hope the deal goes through.  It was an accidental discovery.  I wanted to look at iproperty.com.my at the details of an auction property for my friend during lunch time. When I opened it, suddenly my eyes saw the word: newest listings and found that a property was listed for one of my target areas.  Since it was lunch time, I immediately called the agent and arranged viewing on the same day.

Commercial Properties

Will the owner accept the deal?  Well, I will just have to wait and find out!

Update on Lagoon Perdana Apartment, Sunway

Finally after many months of work, Sara's apartment at Bandar Sunway is ready for rental.  Hopefully, the rental is smooth and without any anxiety to her.  Her hubby has almost done everything himself on the wiring, lights and even plumbing.  Sara only engaged contractor to do the grills.  The rest of the items are from the earlier "borong" sale, or picked up later.  Some of the items are brand new because they require delivery.
The selling point of this unit that it is bright and tastefully decorated. Sara even installed an RO water filter system in the kitchen because she knows that students are too busy to boil water for themselves and having safe and clean drinking water is a priority to students and their parents.
The apartment has 3 rooms, all equipped with study tables and chairs, beds and mattresses, wardrobe, lights and fans.  The common sharing items include fridge, tv, washing machine and a brand new microwave oven.
Good luck, Sara, hope you can get all your tenants soon.

Auction property course with Dr Peter Yee

Today Sara and I spent a day with Dr Peter Yee in his auction course.  It was filled with practical steps, great strategy and laughter throughout the whole session.

One of the real-life properties for inspection

As shared by many who are inspired by him, Dr Yee is unassuming, always humble and shares from his heart.  It's been a great session, hopefully I can also be successful in auction properties after my first unsuccessful attempt.
I think I have 2 friends who are similarly inspired by him, as reported in How to Choose Investment Shop-Offices  and Property Virgin March 2011.
