IN FOCUS: CHANNEL SURFING by Nicole Kow
The access of a whole set of channels brings a variety of great shows to keep a look out for. Last November, I highlighted a bunch of television programs that would interest homeowners. Since then, new home-related TV shows have emerged. The initial ideology to makeovers have since evolved spurring on shows that bring heart, problem-solving techniques, education and information as well as possibly expanding our creative horizons.
This month, we take a look at the newer available programs on Starhub which bring a new palette of information and handy tips that will keep you hooked.
Starhub Channel 442 [Style]
Self-proclaimed control freak, Amanda LeBlanc, cleans, organizes and modernizes client’s slovenly spaces. With a keen eye for organizing and a complimentary gift for decorating, Amanda and her team of well-dressed, like-minded ‘Amandas’ take on the mission of space cleaning. Every episode undertakes a new disaster which Amanda’s do-or-die attitude hones her team to get the job done and on time to reveal its amazing transformation of practical and creative organization.
60 Minute Makeover

IN MY OPINION: THE BUILDING BLOCKSBy Brian Kow
From then on, Jude and I have moved on to create impressionable homes especially challenging terrace houses, where the constraints of space, light and ventilation are always a major consideration.
The journey has been tough but an enjoyable one, where our vision to "Design and Build Homes To Be Proud Of," from a concept has become a reality and with the hope that this forms a legacy for the next generation to carry this through.
Credibility and integrity has been developed through time and forms an integral basis of how Nic & Wes has been nurtured. Together with creative and functional designs has made us more than just a building contractor.
We are taking to task to make the "Design & Build" procurement as simple, pleasurable and a joyous experience to finally come back to a customized place they would be proud to call - Home.
