Best sites to shop from for furnishing your home

Owning a house was THE goal after kids’ education and wedding for our parents’ generation.

That is slowly changing now with most of us getting an apartment in early 20s.

Ads show images of folks like us sitting on the balcony/lawn sipping tea leisurely flipping through the pages of newspaper.

Assetz East Point: Standing Tall in the Concrete Jungle

Before I begin, a big thank you to all of you who have written in saying how much you are looking forward to this series. It’s your enthusiasm and encouragement that has kept me going. I haven’t been able to keep up with the pace of posts as much as I’d like to. There’s a huge backlog, but the good news is that I’ve scheduled…



Habitat Crest

Habitat Crest is located on the ITPL main road. We first looked at Habitat Crest sometime in February, and I loved the ground floor unit (the lower duplex) with its huge garden.

The upper duplex and…
