    Buying In Indonesia

    Oh wow, you're well informed. I live there in my childhood during the 1998 riot and several years onwards. House were destroyed and the girls were raped and killed. Not a great memory (apart from not needing to go to school). It might be different now, but my memory on how Indonesian born...

    Airbnb and Strata

    Security risk will be my concern as well if owners within my building is doing a short term BnB list. Regular tenants are listed and accounted for by building manager, but even then we have things broken and stolen within common area. If people are changing every couple of days it'll be a lot...

    Neighbour abuse and defamation

    Some friends got this as well. I think the perpetrator must have been so bored and have a lot of time to care about other people's business. Can you print out all the nasty texts with respective name and put it on a board for everyone to see? Titled "Harassments I received when doing research...

    Buying In Indonesia

    The above are very important. I am not saying that it's impossible to make money there. However the culture, system, legality, ethics etc there are very different compared to how it is in Australia. Fail to understand the above and you will likely get in trouble.

    Neighbour abuse and defamation

    Keep all the defamatory emails. Keep log on all the abuse. Save money then go sue them :p I assume the aggrieved party didn't do anything wrong tho? Why do this person specifically target this unit owner?

    Clueless unsupportive mother

    I tell my parents every now and them, and their responses are similar, usually out of concern. So I just said, "Understand your concern, don't worry, I've got that covered" and repeat. No further details needed unless they ask :rolleyes:

    Need to change this bathtub?

    Just a quick update. After a lot of consideration, we opt for resurface. There are just too little time to arrange a total rip out. Due to the condition of the tub, we will need to do reno on the bathroom in 1-2 year time or so when the tub gives out :( On the flip side, I have tenant...

    Purchasing a Puppy

    Hey Nem - Why English Cocker Spaniel? They need a lot of exercise or otherwise can be skittish. They also have some hereditary issue, so you will need to check your breeder and talk to them. Good breeders will never let their puppies go to unsuitable homes and would take them back for rehoming.
