Weekend Leisure Post - To Renovate Or Upgrade?

For the past few days, the hottest local news is non other than the preview (soft launch) of the Jewel Changi Airport, for those lucky few who have gotten the free preview tickets, sure to have a blast there. From the videos/photos shared in the social media so far, I feel proud that for a tiny country like us, we can grind out something as spectacular and grand as this!

As for the international news, it's the buzz regarding the upcoming premiere of long-awaited Marvels Universe sequel Avengers - Endgame (from 24th Apr 2019). In local context, it has "forced" Shaw cinema chain to introduce an online queuing system to purchase the ticket (yes, you hear it right, before you can access the site to book your advanced ticket, you need to get a queue number and they will send you a link to access the site when your queue is up!). Beside downing the servers of the cinema chains in the region (due to the high volume of traffics), long queues are forming at selected ticket box offices just to buy the movie tickets (crazy right?). To top it off, cinema chains in the region are competing to screen the earliest show on the first day. So far, I think the winner is from Hong Kong cinema chain whereby their  earliest show is at 6 AM. Mind you, it's on Wednesday and the movie is 3 hours and 2 minutes long :-)

On the personal front, am busy looking around and discussing with IDs (Interior Designers) on renovating our 15 years old home. The quotes received so far is between $80K to $120K, this set us thinking whether it would be more meaningful to sell our existing house and upgrade to EC or Condo rather than spending this hefty renovation cost? Of course, we need to think through a few other factors before making final decision... More to come on this...

Cheers!
