New Name, New Address

Guess what i found in my cute mailbox in Indahria. A notice/letter by management informing me that Pos Malaysia Bhd has given the final approved address of Pangsapuri Indahria & here is the full address now. Update!

Pangsapuri Indahria
Persiaran Jubli Perak
Seksyen 22
40300 Shah Alam
Selangor Darul Ehsan

Haih, first the name change from Indahrisa to Indahria, now the address is also changed. Can the developer change the location to perhaps somewhere in KLCC?

15th Floor Showroom

I envy this 15th showroom @ Indahria. It shows how you can utilise tiny space into a comfortable living home. See for yourself!

Spring Cleaning

I am currently on a long leave from work (relax, its not retrenchment or anything) & what better way to spend your holiday then to clean your own home :) As i have just installed 2 air-conditioning unit in my house and the boys who fitted the a/c unit havent do the cleaning just yet, i decided to do some spring (more like summer) cleaning myself (and to ask discounts from the boss later).

There are tonnes of dust everywhere and what better way to clean it then the good old fashioned broom stick? The worst part was there was no water and electricity as i just changed my name and the folks at TNB & Syabas have yet to put it back on. Reminding myself to call them up today!

Electricity (TNB) & Water Bill (Syabas) Application

Sometime in April i received a call from the developer (Shanghai Realty) to inform me that i will have to change the name on the utilities bill (electricity & water). They inform me that i would have to change it myself but of course if i want them to do it on behalf there would be some service costs involve. Heck, enough of paying the developers more money. So i decided to go and do it myself.

So on my day off today, i went to Shah Alam TNB's kedai tenaga. I have done a bit of research on this as this is my first time doing this (my 1st house whattt) so asked help from our good friend, Mr. Google regarding what required for this process. With everything ready i went to the shop. Took a number, and was advised to fill up the form 1st. The form that you should be filling up is called the Permohonan Bekalan Elektrik Domestik or Domestic Electricity Supply Application form.

Here are the list of what was required:
  • Salinan perjanjian jual beli @ Salinan Geran Tanah @ Sales & Purchase Agreement copy
  • Salinan kad pengenalan pemohon @ NRIC photocopy
  • Bayaran untuk proses @ Processing fees - RM3.00
  • Stem Hasil @ Stamp Duty - RM10.00
  • Wang Cagaran @ Deposit - RM210.00 (depending on your type of house)
  • Salinan Bil Elektrik @ Copy of previous electricity bill

Guess what, after running through my check list last night about this, i forgot about the stamp duty and to make a copy of the S&P. The lady assisting was kind of enough to make a photocopy of the S&P and informed that i can pay RM10 directly to them for the stamp duty. Thank you to the lady as it would save some time then going to the post office (yes, the post office is nearby but u still have to drive though). Made payment and was informed that electricity will be up in 2 working days. The thing that surprised me was there was no queue for this services, although i still have to take a number & how fast the lady assisted me. One thing that all Indahria Apartment resident should notice is that the street name & postal code that was given by the developer to TNB is different than your actual address but the lady also informed that was the address given to them and they would have to follow it accordingly. Fine by me, just dont cut the electricity ever again.

Turnaround time: 10 minutes (including waiting time)

Electricity bill: Done, next please.

Off to Syabas (Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor) in Kelang. I am still wondering why is it that there isnt any Syabas branches in Shah Alam itself. I hate going to Kelang as the traffic jam is really bad (pity u Kelang folks). Fortunately for me, i have been to Syabas before and roughly knew where it was. Just a quick guide, just after Kelang town, when u cross the river and when u can see the tall CIMB building on your right, maintain to the left. There will be a signboard to go to Majlis Perbandaran Kelang, keeping left follow the signboard. 1st turn to the left would be Syabas. Took a number, asked the cute looking staff of Syabas what was required. Filled up the form & waited for my turn. There were quite a number of people around and this was at 11:30am but the numbers are running fast. Not bad.

Here are list of what was required:

  • Salinan perjanjian jual beli @ Salinan Geran Tanah @ Sales & Purchase Agreement copy
  • Salinan kad pengenalan pemohon @ NRIC photocopy
  • Wang Cagaran @ Deposit - RM100.00
  • Caj pemasangan meter @ Meter Installation Charges - RM30.00
  • Salinan Bil Air Lama @ Copy of previous water bill

As i have totally forgotten to make duplicate copies of my S&P, i was again hoping that the lady who assisted me can make a photocopy of the S&P. The lady smiled and replied politely and said "Boleh, tapi satu keping kitorang charge RM0.20" Haha! Trying my luck, again, but on the window counter there were notices informing patrons about the photocopy charge. I guess a lot of people have forgotten to make their S&P photocopies as well. Oh well, it was only RM1, as they only require the important pages only. The lady also informed me that within 3 working days water should be up and i call the person in charge if theres no water by next Monday.

Turnaround time: 15 minutes (excluding waiting time of 20 minutes) Again, not bad.

So, both electricity bill & water bill is now under my name and it was only around 12:30 PM, its time to have lunch!

Good day indeed.
