i dont understand why ppl ballot and gives up their chance if their dream unit is taken...its like they are balloting to get their dream home..

this is so unfair to the ppl who desperately in need of a house...
i had frds that balloted so many times never get a Q number with range

I think you are referring to me and maybe I can explain my stand.
Not everyone who ballot under sobf is desperate for a unit and everyone has the right to decide how they want their ballot chance to be used. I’ve balloted 4 times without a queue number prior to this exercise and I do understand the frustration.

However, having stayed in this estate for my SO and my entire lifetime, there’s definitely a reason why the remaining units doesn’t appeal to us, thus giving up our chance.

Thanks for the kind reply .
Despite being sick I went site visit again justnnow and first time passed by sun Breeze
Looked so bright there but didn’t enter there cos scared to get confused again hehe
Sun natura is good enough for now I Guess

Hey semblady the other day I went walk walk at Sun Natura which is the estate you mention opposite the MRT track.. Discover the walking path from the car park entrance between Natura and Breeze got direct path to Ark@Gambas.. Level 1 got one canteen.... So it's not as bad as I thought. Although I don't know when the shops gonna open, at least the industrial factory still got canteen so you guys can still go there buy food.. But it's not open on weekend though. :o

Wow cool la. I didn’t know got through road to Ark. nice
Also they will open Fairprice and eating place in between 362A and 363A
The small building there.. so that area not bad also will develop well soon..
Just that sun natura is more spacious than Breeze
But Breeze is brighter at night cos of the park lights
But soon thy gonna open park in front of 362A also ..

Hi all
For FF flats I know it’s floor finish
But it’s the finish that the previous owner selected during their flat selection is it?
We can only check the floor once we got the keys right ?

Yes, that's right. Its the one selected by the previous owner. And ya, will only be able to check once you get your keys :)

Did the unit you chose have floor finish already?

I think someone mentioned before in another thread that you can check when booking with the officer. I'm not sure though, the units that were offered in RoF didn't come with any OCS components.

Yeah
As I was aiming for unit beside mrt and had 2 units left for that and I chose the one of higher level and after booking I realised it had FF so I’m happy cos it’s like a bonus and I hope it’s some nice design hehe.. even if it’s not I will still keep it as a souvenir from the previous owner :))

I’m not so picky about the units just had one condition beside mrt cos morning taking a feeder bus to mrt always costs me another 20-30 mins extra travel time 😶😶😶

Don't give up. Miracles happen la.

Like my case it was so close to all Canberra units getting taken away...and I even prepared backup list for semb side.. end up some ppl dropout and some booked the other side... eventually I had 5 units to choose from for Canberra side itself on my selection day...

so u wont know what happens till the actual day.. so just keep calm and pray:D that's what I did

I don't think its unfair. Given that everyone has equal chances of balloting, unless under special schemes. Besides, SBF doesn't cater to just people who are desperately in need of a house. It could be for people who doesn't want to wait too long for BTO & etc.

As for me i've given up in an exercise because the remaining units location were inaccessible for my grandparents thus i had to give up. There are many reasons why people give up their chance.

Yes once u reach there for self-service kiosk scan IC/appointment letter take queue number.

Mine was 3rd one for the day for semb area. I went one hour earlier and took queue number wait.

BUT no matter how early u go, they only call ur queue number exactly at the appointment time they give you:s22:

So I assume if u r late.. u still have time to get queue ticket, till the next appointment time for the one who is next in the queue..of course.. once they called the next one in, u have to wait for 12pm or 4pm time slot to get called.

Whatever it is, go get a queue number as soon as u reach la
