    Hi Charles, just happened to stumble into your blog while googling; great write-ups; keep up the good job. BTW, might you like to check out a new gated & guarded residential project by listed DKLS group (developed by DKLS Premierhome SB, their subsidiary) their first in Ipoh and tentatively called “Genesis”. It’s located in a new area behind Sunland Residence/Taman Wing Onn (off Jln Kuala Kangsar, Ipoh). Launching is in late Oct 2014 but website is not ready. Their office is at the Tower Regency Hotel. Project comprises about 180 units with a mix of terraced, cluster semi-D, townhouses, semi-D and detached houses. Some of the bread-and-butter 2-storey terraced units have a mind-blowing 28 feet width. No, I’m not connected whatsoever with DKLS but merely an interested potential buyer who would very much like to read what you have to say. Thanks.
