There is one thing worse than an Enbloc ----- and that is an Enbloc done badly. Since the majority have the necessary mandate to sell, then they owe it to all SPs to make a success of it. Minority SPs can only watch and wait, if they sell then lets pray it's at a price we can move on with, if they don't sell, then we are happy to stay for a few more years.

All Those Collective Sale Videos


Alas, TC does not have an official video.   
My free, amateurish, hack of a video can be found here   in my private Dropbox account and not for public-at-large consumption - in case it gets mistaken for the real McCoy..... as if 😜. I love the comment about Tampines Court not being a secret military base, it made me laugh.  You'd swear I had let loose some evil video powerful enough to influence those with a billion dollars to spend. That I had spilled the beans on the plot ratio, the top secret number of malls nearby and the hush-hush location of the airport. All positive things about the estate, mind you. It was basically just Google Earth set to music! I don't really get all the complaining.

Well, since the first one obviously bombed with the  Majority crowd, how about a Bollywood version? No idea what the music lyrics are about... probably totally inappropriate.
Wish I had a few shots of TC owners dancing around trees 😎.

    Think all can chip in idea to give blogger to add to video presentation if she is comfortable to edit in since official persons in charge seem not so proactive as expected !

    Blog owner said : "Someone should ask on the FB page.". Wonder why she don't do it herself ? Why everybody so scare to go to FB. Is it because this blog provides you anonymity that you can anyhow attack the enbloc team without need to reveal your identity ?

    1. FB also provides anonymity - you can set up a bogus account in order to contribute. No one is scared to go to the FB account - but it is as quiet as the grave over there...

      If you use fake identity in FB you will be blocked if complain is make against you. You experienced it before right ? In any case, your identify can easily be traced if you use fake name to defame someone. Hence over FB u need to post responsibly, unlike here anyone can anyhow attack the team under anonymity. Its quiet as a grave in FB because all scare to post there mah. Ask questions also scare. If scare email the team lah.

      FB needs to post responsibly? No wonder we have some mad people here posting irresponsibly on this blog.

      e.g. - the LOL guy, the KPKB guy - blogger just posts these comments to show how dumb these people can be.

    Not sure if MA already has this to give personal presentation to potential bidders & developers. If have it's not wise to load at youtude as there is a risk of misreprensation if facts are inaccurate.

    1. Which facts exactly have I misrepresented?
      For heaven's sake, this is a blogger video - developers don't trawl blogs for facts.

    Also why want to upload the video when all our competitors can view it & know the strength & weakness of our development. They may use it against us when pitching for business. Before u guys continue to attack the MA for what they are doing or not, please understand there is repercussion for every wrong actions. The MA are accoutable to all the SPs (majority & minority) for any wrong actions they do.

    Instead of keep on attacking them under anonimity, why not try to build relationship with our team & have dialogues with them thru email or face -to-face communication so you air your greviences or give feedback. No point keep on attacking them on this blog which can be read by anyone.

    As someone has suggested before 'don't wash dirty linens' at public. If you guys insist on doing that it just confirm you are either anti-enblocers or outsiders trying to sabotage our enbloc.

    I really hope the blog owner will open her eyes to realise she is doing more damages to our enbloc than help. You have done enough to boost your ego by trying to show that you are knowledgeable but seriously like you will told off during the meeting " Enough is enough !"

    Seriously, TC is not a secret military base. Anybody can make videos of it and make it available to the public. I wonder which dimension some of the commenters here came from...

    Unless you are someone who likes to see the enbloc fall flat, i find it puzzling that fellow SPs would balk at the idea of having a drone video. Granted any good developer would be aware of what is happening and would do their own homework for the site..however we are also talking about foreign developers who may not be familiar with the site...though they usually partner a local guy to do the ground work, a video on the site would get them all excited and take the next step...though i must add its better to produce it professionally,..sorry blogger, i think your video can't cut it...sorry for being so blunt..haha. Notwithstanding, I leave it to the good judgement on the part of the MA to decide whether to spend some money to really kick up the dust for TC. Remember part of the fiduciary duty is to ensure effort has been made to secure the best possible price for the SP,..making a good drone video on the site and its surroundings will go towards fulfilling this aspect.

      Please lah. This is a billion dollar's project. Foreign buyers just need a video to be get them excited & interested in the project ? Not that it's not useful but video is just one of the sales presentation tool though it would help if you have one more professional done. To win any sales you need very good & the right connection, much more professional selling skill & powerful presentation tools than just a video to get them interested to bid for such a big project. Stop harping on the video as if without it the enbloc will sure to fail. How do you know MA don't have one ? Must they blare the trumpet to the world? . Instead of kpkb & harping on the video why not come out with more creative & ORIGINAL idea to help in the enbloc & email yr suggestion to the team. ie. If you have any at all.

      why would someone object to putting TC on the world map without him or her having to pay a single cent unless he or she is not a SP. we have come very far to get to where we are...its not the time to be penny wise and pound foolish. Do a good job or at least be seen to be doing a good job and end of the day even the minorities will have nothing to say.

      check your brain first before saying others are kpkb.

      It is because of people like you that FB is so quiet and MA doesn't bother to update anything. Instead of this blog closing down, FB page should just shut down. And since you love the MA so much, then get out of here and talk on your FB page.

    Seriously I don't understand why the big hoo haa of drone video. Drone Video is still a video. Video may helps but it may not be the most effective presentation tool. If I want to buy a house, I rather the agent sent me the pics of the house rather then a video. Slide presentation may be more effective & interactive way as the presenter can fwd & backwd the slides & pause to allow the clients to ask questions & get clarification & to help him to digest the information. Video may be too fast for absorbing information. Go to any seminars & you can see the presenter usually only use videos just for preliminary introduction but it is not absolutely necessary. The main presentation is still using slides, oral presentation & FAQ.

    To blog owner. It's not the making of yr video that is the issue but the amateurish quality. Anyone can simply download an App, do a screen capture from Google map and can do.a better job than you. Just that people are not so egostic and show off as you. If you don't feel shy to post yr video side by side with the videos of the other MA, we do ok ?.

    Please don't act smart & spoilt the reputation of TC. We have enough of yiur nonsense !

      Free but bad video is a liability to TC as it spoilt our reputation. Morever I thiink slide presentation is a better & more powerful interactive sales presentation tool than video as it gives more time for viewers to ask questions, absorb & digest the detail information. You can see that almost all agents use photos instead of video in their property advert. Our eyes are not fast enough to capture all the details of the property shown in the video. We are NOT selling toothpaste, drinks or other consumer products which a short video is suffice but a billion dollar project ! Personal & interactive sales presentation to prospective clients is important & not just ask them to watch video on youtude.

    Do you think the MA interests are fully aligned with SPs?

    MA just wants the brokerage fee and get it done at RP. Do you think they want to maximise the Price? Is it because they feel RP is a slam dunk they dont need to do more? Think!

    15 bidders for the 99-year-leasehold plot. Hope this will happen on 15 Aug 3pm:

    Woodleigh site exceeds expectations with S$700.7m top bid

    IT was another competitive fight for the residential site at Woodleigh Lane.

    The tender results, announced by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Tuesday, showed 15 bidders for the 99-year-leasehold plot located close to Bidadari New Town.

    Chip Eng Seng's unit, CEL Unique Development, put in the top bid of S$700.7 million, which translates to about S$1,110 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr).

    Corson and Wingjoy Investment put in the second highest bid of S$695 million, or about S$1,101 psf ppr.

      Agree. I hope the noise makers can get the point now. Video is just one of the sales presention tool lah. Others include brochure, presentation slides, site viewing & briefing etc. Create so much hoo haa for what ? Developers would not just buy yr land because you got the most beautiful video. Many other factors are involved.
