    Is business nowadays good?

    last week i went to a Home Fair to look for a metal frame door plus grill ( most probably China made ) . Satisfied with the price and design, i was told to hack the floor 3 inches below and 3 inches side for door frame . i tell them to come to office to coordinate with the contractor . He answered " just tell them to follow our instructions and when completed, pay in full, we will come to install it, sure "ngam" one".I tell them is this the way to do business? I just walk off.The previous problem i encounter is you pay in full first, only they come.

    Sad to say, I think they are correct.

    Most contractors/carpenter should be able to do such a simple preparation.

    Oh well..all sorts of contractors these days, macam2 types who want/insist their own way of conducting their business. Some are willing to go the extra mile, some don't even flinch, take it or leave it basis. I suppose Jan met these kind.
    Don't like how they conduct business? walk away and find another that's more accommodating.

    On the contrary, it seems like business is tough and they are less choosy now...

    My wall light at balcony was accidentally broken by cleaner, and need a replacement.
    I bought a Philips outdoor wall light from a shop in USJ Taipan. Only one item, they also arranged electrician to install and the charges is only RM35.

    Btw, talk about outdoor light, I find Philips stainless steel weatherproof outdoor light is good.. https://www.usa.philips.com/c-p/1641...den-wall-light
