Price reasonable, location is near to N-S highway via Bukit Tambun interchange. Potential area...

August 26, 2009 at 9:55 AMoswald

Does anyone know if the the 20K rebate is still valid for this project?

and how many percents of the units have been sold?


August 26, 2009 at 11:47 PMUnknown

O have made a survey in the area, it has history of flooding in the past at Kampung Kepala Gajah and Kampong Manggis. Asked the sales girl with regards to flooding and they say the land is 10 ft above sea level (only), dare not commit anything, Seems like a flood prone area, I wonder if flooding has been mitigated already, if not, will there be any initiative by the government?

August 27, 2009 at 12:10 AMUnknown

After 2 weeks lauching almost 70% sold. This project estimated complete by 2 years, that time 2nd bridge almost done. i went there and saw the road is upgrading. gated + swimming pool + backyard garden. Emmm can consider, potential area...

September 10, 2009 at 9:45 AMKKH


Does anyone how much for each property type?

September 13, 2009 at 11:28 AMoswald

Should be 238K for terrace.

September 15, 2009 at 12:47 AMPslim

how's the flies problem in that area? any plan from the developer. I've been to the semi-D sample house during the last weekend and i was welcome wif a lots of flies.

September 15, 2009 at 12:39 PMoswald

Ya, went there last weekend also and saw the flies. According to my friend who is staying nearby, this doesn't happen always, around once or twice a month; and it lasts only one day.

Could be due to the chicken farm nearby; not sure if the developer looks into the problem.

September 15, 2009 at 5:01 PMKKH

If got flies then need to be watch out. Normally it will not went off so fast. You need to check the condition especially after rain. Is anyone know if the place also smelly?

September 22, 2009 at 2:33 PMUnknown

I found the overall (current + future) development plan around pearl garden at simpang ampat.
did anyone know what is better bank loan offer for this project so far?

September 22, 2009 at 5:19 PMSimon Tan

In this case of there ae plenty of flies, most properly the actual causes are nearby there are chicken / pigs farms around, if the area is smelly then the condition is even worth, there mean the drainage or river near by are clogged up, the discharge water are all dead bacteria / stagnated, so guys be care lor.

September 23, 2009 at 10:46 AMDave Chow

For semi-d, is 355k the price after rebate 20K(promotion)? Do this place near to Penang second bridge?

September 23, 2009 at 6:02 PMUnknown

How many unit still left? As understand that area not near to farm, but I can see a lot of cows near by... Luckily it gated and guarded.

September 23, 2009 at 8:49 PMDave Chow

I m not so sure about the double storey terrace, but for semi-d I have called to them and the sales rep said that the total unit is 102units and so far has sold out 30unit++....

September 24, 2009 at 12:56 AMoswald

ya. 355k is after 20k rebate.
It's about 4km to Bukit Tambun Highway Exit, and 8-10km to Batu Kawan where the Second Bridge is to be built.

According to a local, there is a chicken farm nearby, probably hidden in the palm oil farm :D

September 24, 2009 at 7:46 PMoswald

Some loan info that I found:

OCBC: flexi, year 1-3 BLR-2.3%; T/A BLR-2.4%; MRTA optional; legal fee borne by borrower.

Standard-Chartered: flexi, whole tenure BLR-2.3%; MRTA compulsory; legal fee borne by bank.

UOB: ZMC - whole tenure BLR-2.2%; NZMC - whole tenure BLR-2.4%; MOF: 80%

September 29, 2009 at 9:26 PMUnknown

According to sales girl around november the show house will ready for viewing. Not sure did they start anything there?

October 8, 2009 at 11:17 AMoswald

Don't see any construction pertaining to the show house at the site yet....

October 16, 2009 at 5:27 PMUnknown

According to Sales Rep, S&P will be ready to sign by this month end, anyone have received the notification letter?

October 17, 2009 at 12:40 AMoswald

Wilson, that's a good news for me, as I wont be around in December. Wish to sign the agreement ASAP. I haven't received any notification letter yet, but received a call from the developer to check if I have got the loan approval.

October 21, 2009 at 11:09 PMUnknown

Received call from May Chan Lawyer firm today, S&P is ready to sign.

October 22, 2009 at 11:52 PMUnknown

Can we sign S&P 1st then only proceed for sign bank loan?

October 23, 2009 at 12:16 AMoswald

I received the call from the lawyer too.
u can sign the S&P first and loan agreement later.
I will sign both of them together next month.

October 23, 2009 at 12:18 AMoswald

Btw, I heard that Bank Negara will impose a lower limit for interest rate at BLR-1.9% soon. I hope it won't affect our loan package. I guess most of us are getting around BLR-2.0% to BLR-2.4%

October 23, 2009 at 12:53 AMspicysun

It's true. My banker friend said the same thing. For those of you who is looking at purchasing properties, please do so soon. They have until end of this month only...

October 25, 2009 at 3:13 AMoswald

the show-house can only be ready in January 2010.

October 25, 2009 at 2:40 PMWills

Some one told me the construction site was a mining land which is unstable. As i am not a local person can some one help to clarify this?

October 25, 2009 at 4:40 PMoswald

I am staying about 5km away; never heard of any mining activities; but only plantation and farming. But I could be wrong. What kind of mining?

October 26, 2009 at 8:57 AMWills

Well! i heard from some one who trying to compare between villa cendana and pearl garden whiout further explaination of mining history..... most important things is the farming and plantation activities update. Are they still active? Cause, we experienced seasoning smelly atmosphese near juru height.

October 26, 2009 at 9:34 AMoswald

The smelly atmosphere is much mitigated now. It's occasional and at an acceptable level. I'm more worried about the flies which I presume originating from the chicken farm nearby. They appear perhaps once or twice a month in large swarm, but usually last only 1 day.

Nevertheless, I still purchased a unit because of the good landscape design, facilities, and most importantly the gated security. Nowadays break-in is common everywhere, not excluding Simpang Ampat. So safety is still my main concern.

October 26, 2009 at 12:00 PMWills

Foliage! I strongly agreed all the plus points you mention. The nearby primary school was one of the reason for me to decide my booking as well.

October 26, 2009 at 10:29 PMUnknown

Yeah, agreed! foliage & william you have all my words~~~, all the developments around the area it showed symptom for a new township growing....all these drive me to purchase a unit.

October 28, 2009 at 2:01 PMoswald

Let's hope for the best.
Can't wait to view the show-house :)

October 31, 2009 at 4:19 PMUnknown

i notice the S&P don't have date. i ask the May chan staff, they said doesn't matter u can sign 1st then they will put date later. It is true? i though must have the date on S&P before we sign? Can anyone advice?

November 2, 2009 at 9:38 AMWills

I had a copy of S&P & Deed of Mutual covenats with me that i got it from May Chan last saturday. I still haven't sign yet because some thing unclear. If you look carefully they don't even have their (license no.) on the first page of the contract. Means their project development license still not out yet. May Chan told me should be out within 2 weeks time. I believe May Chan will not put any date on the contract prior the license no. My advice! if you can wait then wait for another 2 weeks.

November 2, 2009 at 9:46 AMWills

Below are some information and reasons why the project charge under Strata Title (Master Title).

Normally to save cost developer will develop a big piece of land under master title(eg:200 units of link houses under one big title). They need just pay the quit rent on the master title only(imagine if they sub divide to 200 individual title & pay quit rent on 200 unit of houses, a lot of admin work involve) When they selling off all the houses n completed built the house they will just submitted the Master Title to Land Office to subdivide to individual title with owner name on the title.

The buyer will worry that the developer delay in doing the submission to Land Office to subdivide the Master Title. The worse case is the developer wind up and buyer can't even get their individual title of their house. So, my advice is you can check with the developer whether they already submitted application to land office to subdivide the master title to individual title. Normally it will take 3-5 years after the property completed to get the individual title as what i know.

1. If you got confident on the developer then is alright to buy a property under master title.

2. As mention above, normally will take 3-5 years to get the individual title, unless the developer is bankrupt then is hard to get the individual title(still can get the individual title but is take a longer time through legal procedure)

3. Developer got the right to do so(still within guideline in Housing Development Act)

4. If the house can't get individual title in later time (eg: 10years) then that will affect the house price downward. some of the bank even don't want to give a loan to a property still under master title more than 5 years and above.

Note: May Chan informed additional fees will imposed when the moment charging out the land title from master title to individual title

November 2, 2009 at 12:48 PMoswald

For the additional fee of charging out master title to individual titles, is it the same as the Memorandum of Transfer that cost around 5-6k?

November 2, 2009 at 6:43 PMmandy

Official Launching Of Pearl Garden
- 14/11/09 - 15/11/09, 10am - 6pm
- Venue : Pearl Garden Sales Office, Simpang Ampat
- Light Refreshment will be served (Sun)

November 4, 2009 at 1:19 PMoswald

Mandy, I think for the current stage, you can sign the S&P whenever u r ready. The lawyer asked me to sign last month, but I'll only sign it about 2 weeks from now.

November 5, 2009 at 9:04 AMWills

Yesterday, a foreign banker told me the developer is soon getting the license within 1 or 2 weeks.2 local banker already offer me to view the loan offer letter which drafted with indication of offer rate between -1.95% to -2.2%. They shown their confident of offering for this project. Yet i will sign the S&P after 2 weeks.

November 5, 2009 at 1:51 PMWills

May Chan called again just now, housing development license ready! They will indicate in the S&P. Can sign the S&P any time from now.

November 5, 2009 at 7:37 PMoswald

Good News. Thanks William!

November 8, 2009 at 1:58 AMUnknown

Some bank even offer upto -2.3%, i will sign on next week... i was told that the 1st year management fee is free. i need to confirm this with lawyer again....

November 8, 2009 at 10:13 PMWills

I already signed the S&P in the afternoon. 1st year management fee free is not for the buyer who already enjoy discount during purchase. It is just like a discount in other way sound like promotion during official launching...

November 8, 2009 at 11:16 PMoswald

So the 20k rebate is no longer available? When I made the booking 2 months ago, they told me that the price for semi-D is 355K, which includes already the rebate 20K. So the semi-D now would cost 375K?

November 9, 2009 at 9:27 AMWills

Well! i believe Semi-D official launching price will not less then 370k and may go up to 380k. Now market price for new launching semi-d with gated facilities near auto city alrealy calling for 415k above.....

November 9, 2009 at 10:16 AMoswald

Ya, that makes sense regarding the price. Between Juru and Simpang Ampat, I would prefer Simpang Ampat, serene and far from industrial area. Heard some houses at Juru Heights are rented out as foreign workers hostel.

November 9, 2009 at 5:56 PMAnonymous

Ya, I believe when all the proposed infrastructure, especially the second Link are completed, the properties over there will go up further.

November 12, 2009 at 3:55 PMUnknown

Have anyonce start pay for the deposit? How's the payment term, 1 short for 12 mths?

November 14, 2009 at 9:16 PMoswald

i'll make the downpayment with 12-month installment with post-dated cheque, as suggested in the letter from the developer. However, I am not sure when should we start paying, will ask the lawyer this Monday.

November 15, 2009 at 4:15 PMUnknown

i just confirmed with developer staff that we can issue 1st post-dated cheque date at 1st of december 2009.

November 15, 2009 at 10:02 PMUnknown

Dear all neighbours,
i just bought a double story terrace.

November 16, 2009 at 10:59 PMWills

Wow! i didn't expect price at Taman Tambun Indah hit so high, close to 1 mil for 7800sf. Hopefully pearl garden price will grow up upon completion provided all common facilities are ready by than.

November 18, 2009 at 2:16 PMWills

Is any one familiar with AMbank services such online banking, branches accessibility and flexi home loan package? I am about to confirm the home loan offer by them but totally no experiences using AMbank services hope to get some advice from you guys.

November 19, 2009 at 11:29 AMUnknown

I have yet received the Letter regarding the down payment. Anyone can advice who should pay to and listed in posted cheque? As understand the 1st posted cheque shall start on 1st Dec 09.

November 19, 2009 at 12:53 PMoswald

Wilson, did u receive the registered letter asking u to sign the S&P? the down-payment instruction is in that letter too. I have already passed the cheque to the lawyer. The cheque is to be payable to Tambun Indah Development Sdn. Bhd.

November 19, 2009 at 11:44 PMUnknown

who noe wat is the projected completion date for pearl garden??

November 20, 2009 at 11:39 AMUnknown

It take 3 years for completation upon signing S&P.
Anyhow, develop said can complete by Beg 2012

November 21, 2009 at 6:50 PMUnknown

hi all, is it really finish by 3 years?

November 22, 2009 at 12:36 AMoswald

ya, that's right. According to S&P, the project follows Schedule H, with date of completion of 36 months. That is from the legal point-of-view.

I believe the project wouldn't take 3 years to complete. As CK said, beginning of 2012 is the date developer gives us. With the good track record of Tambun Indah, it sounds promising to me. Of course, u must be prepared for the worst. :)

November 22, 2009 at 3:25 PMUnknown

Hi good morning to all of you.

i hear that the location is smelly because located near to the chicken farm.

Could you please give me a kindness advice regarding the terrace housing price eps the differentiate between intermediate unit and corner unit.

The latest status development of pearl garden,overall master planning,title.

I'm intention to seek my first dreams house. well i'm from penang mainland nibong tebal citizen. Now working at oversea.

November 23, 2009 at 9:50 AMUnknown

thanks foliage.

there is another question for the club house, I heard from my friend who stay in the Taman Tambun Indah, previously they also have club house and swimming pool but it has been close by the developer due to a few reason like add another monthly charge RM150 for the club house and etc...

for the pearl garden, will it be the same? the monthly fee are they include the clud house facility? how are the developer manage this club house?

November 23, 2009 at 1:32 PMUnknown

Hi.....foliage ,william anyone else there ^^

Please kindly enlighten me the latest status of pearl garden .

Thank you.

November 23, 2009 at 5:45 PMWills

Hi! eric, to be frank i really had no experiences staying near to farming area. Based on my observation it is really hard to find a perfect place which is balance between pricing, urban facilities availability or natural enviroment away from industrial area. pearl graden is one example that not as perfect as i expected but never the less i still buy a unit, dealing with fly and smelly problem will only be my concern when we actually see preal graden ready. If you decided to stay away from industrail area the only 2 choice you have are city area or new emerging area (close to virgin land, farming or plantation....) So final choice still up to you.

November 23, 2009 at 10:40 PMoswald

Hi Eric, I fully agree with William. For some of us, the advantages of Pearl Garden do exceed the drawbacks, as we are looking for a safe and serene neighbourhood.

The foul smell from the barn is not serious. It happens occasionally at night. It's ok during daytime. The poultry farm nearby does attract a lot of flies in certain season, probably happens once or twice a month. I can't tell for sure.

The terrace house is from 238K, the price depends on the land area, and the location (more expensive if facing the pool). You can call these numbers for more details: 04-5010088, 012-5115380.

It will be strata title, the entire community will be managed like a condominium. So we have to sign the Deed of Mutual Covenants. I found it particularly useful to maintain the neighbourhood, and the garden looks harmonic. You don't have to worry that your neighbour will extend his house, and block the sunlight etc.

For master plan, u can refer here (it was dated 2007 though):

For forum discussion (chinese), there is a thread here:

cheers! Do let us know if u r going to be our neighbour :)

November 23, 2009 at 11:19 PMUnknown

May be next time we can form a group of committee.

November 24, 2009 at 12:22 AMoswald

Hi DaRon, not sure what happened to the clubhouse in Tambun Indah. For our case, the maintenance fee includes the club house facilities :) Guess the developer will arrange a management team.

PSP, it's a good idea to form a committee to have everything in good shape, and to deal with the management more effectively ;)

Btw, the clinic at the junction near Petronas has already moved to Bandar Tasek Mutiara, not far from Pearl Garden. Hopefully this makes way for the flyover across the federal road.

November 24, 2009 at 1:46 PMJP

hey all, i just bought a double storey terrace... will sign S&P tomorrow...

November 24, 2009 at 1:55 PMJP

yes! i agree to form a committee... wat attracted me was the open concept and the garden ard.. i wld definitely not like to see the place not properly maintened...

November 24, 2009 at 3:35 PMUnknown

hi william and foliage. thanks a lot for the information.

For sure if there is possible to be one of your neighbourhood ^^

well i'm just worried about the location and surrouding context for future development how is look like.

Frankly to said now i'm working at oversea planning to go back malaysia around 2 weeks for chinese new year festival.I would take this opportunity to having a look on site progress.

My question is:
1) It's still available for the double storey terrace unit ?.

2)What is the pricing differentiate between the corner unit and intermediate unit.?

3) what is the future development to be going on within the project surrounding area ?

4) if that possible to get done all the necessary documents etc S&P within one week ?

November 25, 2009 at 1:07 AMMingshiMacMac

seems quite alot of ppl buying pearl garden.

November 25, 2009 at 2:55 PMAnonymous

I have bought a unit too.
Eric, There are still available unit for double storey terrace. The developer has opened more unit for sales(i think it's for phase 2). I am not sure exactly the pricing different between different unit, u may call the number provided by foliage for the details. As for the future development, u may refer to this link provided by foliage Pearl garden should be tagged as 20 in the map.

November 25, 2009 at 3:59 PMJP

i bought a unit in phase 2.. there are not many left in phase 1... the remaining ones are mostly facing afternoon sun or facing road junctions... i think there are still availble units for phase 2.. phase 2 is ard RM10K more expensive compare to phase 1 for terrace houses..

November 26, 2009 at 11:43 AMUnknown

Before our committee form...this is a good forum for us to share. keep going ya

November 28, 2009 at 4:11 PMUnknown

December 1, 2009 at 5:13 PMUnknown

Thanks foliage for the great update, it has been indeed tremendous info, am truly appreciate. Hi neighbours, let's share the latest info if any...:)

December 14, 2009 at 6:32 PMUnknown

Yesterday drop-by the side, saw construction work was running...belive they try to build the show-house

December 22, 2009 at 2:05 PMAnonymous

Anyone knows about the status of the show-house right now?

December 30, 2009 at 11:48 PMUnknown

happy new year neighbor

January 6, 2010 at 8:19 PMUnknown

Dear all, got any news for the show house????

January 8, 2010 at 7:55 PMoswald

I went to the site this afternoon, saw the three types of show-house under construction. The progress now: wall, roof are in place. However, wall plastering and installation of windows and door frame was not complete yet.

Not sure how long it will take for us to view the show-house, probably another 1 month?

January 10, 2010 at 4:32 PMUnknown

According to the staff, they paln to open the show house during CNY

January 10, 2010 at 9:52 PMUnknown

Good, Thanks for the information. Really can't wait to see the show house.

January 11, 2010 at 5:47 PMUnknown

Honestly, I'm quite satisfied for the current progress. I also went to the site last Sunday, the show house looks great!

January 13, 2010 at 4:54 PMUnknown

the 2 storey teres price increase again. Pass Saturday i just visit and i reserve a unit but on Tuesday they call me and said price will be increase 2k after 12.30pm so i need to do booking immediately. By the way may i know what did they offer for phase 1 booking and is there any different for the offer between phase 1 and phase 2?

January 13, 2010 at 7:07 PMoswald

I didn't get any special offer when I booked for Phase I, probably only with lower price compared to now.

It was 238K for terrace and 355K for semi-D that time. What are the prices now?

January 13, 2010 at 9:10 PMUnknown

Hi everyone,

Any idea on the price for DST now?

And is the show house ready for viewing?

January 14, 2010 at 10:50 AMUnknown

Price for DST if not wrong is still start from RM238k but those are at selected location. According the to sales there the show house will be open on CNY and the price will be increase again after the show house done.
Anyone know the price for unit in front of swimming pool during phase one? And how many month free maintenance fee? Because i just get half year free maintenance fee with phase 2 price...

January 14, 2010 at 5:47 PMoswald

Hi Goh, not sure about the price of DST near swimming pool that time, but there is no free maintenance fee promotion during Phase I. It only exists after the official launching in mid-Nov, i.e. 6-month free for all DST, and 12-month free for Phase II semi-D (if I remember correctly) :)

January 15, 2010 at 11:15 AMyit1010

The price for DST near swimming pool on that time seems is > 290k (not sure is it 298k..can't remember)..

January 19, 2010 at 11:33 AMWills

To day chinese paper reported Jit Sin secondary school planned to open branch some where near Seberang Perai Selatan. Is any one know where is the actual location? How far away from Pearl Garden? This is good news, believe house price will up some if this is true.

January 19, 2010 at 2:47 PMoswald

looking at the news, it seems to be located somewhere between the Muda Paper Mill and the Mountain View Golf Resort (previously Kristal Golf Resort). I think it's about 10mins drive from Pearl Garden ;)

January 19, 2010 at 3:33 PMUnknown

Yes, it locate opposite Kristal Golf Resort.
The land was provide by Asas Dunia.
But still waiting the permit from goverment for establish a new chinese secondary school..i think is still long time to wait!!

January 19, 2010 at 3:54 PMUnknown

Yesterday receive a flyer for Tambun Indah housing project. It advertise that Show House will ready to view on Feb.
The Swimming pool and gym is look nice..

January 25, 2010 at 9:35 PMUnknown

The tambun indah website showed the price for DST & semi-D was up already 242k , 358k.

January 27, 2010 at 11:00 AMoswald

according to the website today, now semi-D starts at 363K, and DST 242K. Show-house will be open on 17th Feb.

btw, for those who purchases a unit during CNY, there will be an ang-pow lucky draw :D

January 27, 2010 at 11:42 AMTerence

hi neighbours, my bf and i have purchased a double story at Pearl Garden Phase I. Here we share the progress photo :)

February 1, 2010 at 1:33 PMoswald

great blog, 小丸. keep the photos coming so that we can view the photos from far :) thanks heaps!

February 4, 2010 at 10:23 PMDonny

More photos here.

I have purchased a double story there but not quite pleased with their lack of urgency in getting some docs signed by their boss. It just doesn't make sense to want buyers to get things done in 1 month but they themselves delay things.

February 5, 2010 at 12:03 PMsad guy

hi guys

for your info, the show house is ready for viewing

February 5, 2010 at 4:46 PMAnonymous

Are both type of semi-D and terrace show houses ready for viewing?According to the developer, the show houses can only be viewed on 17th Feb??

February 5, 2010 at 6:50 PMoswald

i did text them to check the opening date but they told me it will be open on 17th feb. hope someone who stay nearby can have a look at the site.

February 5, 2010 at 9:59 PMUnknown

Nice shoot...Donny

February 5, 2010 at 10:32 PMDonny

the show house is giving a lot of ideas on how to renovate it and furnishing it. living room ceiling also need to cover up....wah quite a lot need to be done.'s ok lar...

February 9, 2010 at 9:23 AMyit1010

We did go to the BTM sales office to check about this, the sales person there said that..the land is reserved for muslim. However, whether the mosque / surau will really build or not, or when will it build, the BTM also not sure.

February 9, 2010 at 10:35 AMUnknown

World is really small, i have good friend be my neighbour soon. Hi neighbour, pls inform when you going to see the show house...

February 9, 2010 at 1:35 PMTerence

February 9, 2010 at 11:48 PMUnknown

February 11, 2010 at 2:30 PMoswald

Does anyone notice that the wooden decor at the balcony of semi-D has been replaced by mild steel grille? :(

February 15, 2010 at 4:37 PMsad guy

happy chinese new year to my pearl garden neighbourhoods..may this year bring prosperity 2 u,guys

February 22, 2010 at 11:28 AMloo

I heard from my friends no more 20k rebate and the price keep increasing. Is that true?

And no many unit is available for phase 1A. now they open for phase 1B for selling, but the price increase a lot.

My friends buys 2 unit over there as investment.

February 22, 2010 at 10:09 PMsiwei

Hi all, I just sign up committment letter for a DST unit in front of Swimming pool. It cost 293k with lucky draw 1288.

Where is the proposed New Jit Sin High School site? If this goes ahead it will be good.

March 2, 2010 at 2:14 PMAl

Thanks James for the prompt reply. I read around that the project is not green light yet. Fingers crossed it will be approved.

March 4, 2010 at 10:51 AMoswald

Thanks James for the update. It's at least a good sign for the school. It's quite surprising though that they started the project works even before the approval.

March 5, 2010 at 9:27 PMAl

Well said James. Nice info on the Jit Sin branch project. Delighted to hear that the construction is going ahead. Here's to a wonderful future at Pearl Garden.

March 9, 2010 at 3:15 PMAl

Welcome, welcome James :)

March 9, 2010 at 3:39 PMloo

Welcome James. Welcome everybody to join Pearl Garden neighbourhood and create Pearl Garden community for better security instead of existing Guard house. Hopefully more neighbourhood will join our forum here...

March 9, 2010 at 3:41 PMloo

Hi James, How much u buy for the double storey terrace house?

March 9, 2010 at 11:55 PMWills

Wills said...
Hi! James you are so lucky and just in time to get your loan approved because banks were now increasing BLR to 5.8% average. What is the interest rate you got for your loan? By the way you said "facing garden", do you know any detail plan of landscaping for that piece of land?

March 10, 2010 at 12:58 AMUnknown

Anyone can share which bank able to give best interest rate?

March 10, 2010 at 7:26 AMUnknown

Is anyone notice the ad on weekend newspapaer (6th ~ 7th Mar) stated 12 months free maintanence fee for Semi-D?

March 10, 2010 at 11:17 AMoswald

Welcome James! Great to know your loan was approved. Wills, unfortunately the increase of BLR affects most of us since the housing loans fluctuate with BLR unless one get a fixed-rate loan. Anyhow, the increase is not significant, and the interest rate remains at its historical low.... Quite a good time to purchase a property :)

March 11, 2010 at 2:47 PMUnknown

hi guys, HSBC got promotion for pearl garden project only. 1st 5 years BLR-2.2 and 6th ~ above is BLR - 2.3

March 11, 2010 at 2:52 PMUnknown

go HSBC b'worth and looking for Antony. this promotion end until 31 march

March 12, 2010 at 9:48 AMloo

Hi foliage, you say Pearl Garden increase min 8k-15k. What is the actual price for double storey terrace house for second phase now? I saw in the show house. Not much unit left for second phase? So who want to have this kind of houses, be quick to buy. If not when tambun indah launch 3rd phase, sure price will increase very high cos last phase for pearl garden.

And 1 more matter, for those Pearl Garden house owners, will you all will move in after getting CF or waiting to sell it as investment? Please reply it cos is very important... for our future neighbourhood. Thanks

March 12, 2010 at 12:28 PMoswald

Hi Loo, I'm not sure how much is the DST Phase 2 now; but I remember the soft-launch (Phase 1) price was 238K for DST and 355K for Semi-D. Recently my friend purchased a phase 1 semi-D at 375K - a whopping 20K!

Btw, I bought the house for my own dwelling :)

March 15, 2010 at 3:14 PMming

i booked the DST last 2 weeks, now waiting for loan approval.
nice to meet u all guys. LOL

March 17, 2010 at 10:25 AMloo

Hi Ming, Welcome to our neighbourhood in Pearl Garden. Which plot u bought adn how much?

March 23, 2010 at 10:44 PMsad guy

hi guys..does any1 knows what are they going to do with the chicken farm near pearl garden? will the chicken farm remain there forever?

March 24, 2010 at 10:56 AMAl

Hi Eric, I heard from the sales rep that the chicken farm will be removed in the future as one is not allowed to have a chicken farm near residential area. Not sure whether that will be the truth or not. I did not follow up her claim with MPPP. By the way, what had happen with James comment about Jit Sin High School. Why had it all been removed?

March 24, 2010 at 2:12 PMloo

Hi, the chicken farm will be removed. Don't know when. I wonder why admin keep delete James comment? Is there something hidden info that we can't know. What have you say or wrote in message, James? If admin keep on delete our important, no use we keep post our message in forum. If the deleting message still appear, we protest and we don't to give any comments or message in this blog anymore. We getting fed up. Please vote for me if you agree with me. Thanks

March 24, 2010 at 3:59 PMsad guy

Thank GOD tat they r removing the farm...and also thanks a lot albert n loo 4 de info...i f been always worried about the farm...

March 25, 2010 at 9:26 PMUnknown

welcome all new neighbour....
It really a good news, one of my main concern is the farm.... Hope they move soon...
The DST & semi-D house price growth fast, cant imagine the prices after the 2nd bridge completed.

March 26, 2010 at 10:15 AMUnknown

Hi all,

Any idea whether Phase III has been launched and the pricing?

March 28, 2010 at 12:49 PMAl

gaga, do you use a mobile phone? If you do, then you don't have to worry, mobile phone EM wave is worse. If you believe in EM wave being detrimental to health, you should get rid of mobile phone, microwave and make sure that you body is not exposed to any strong EM wave at all. Current civilized place would not be a good choice. Try places that is less developed and more close to nature. For further information (especially those EM freak nuts) go to

By the way, you would more likely be sick due to bad water and air quality rather than through EM radiation. My advice, check your own life habits before you go nuts blaming EMF making you sick.

March 29, 2010 at 10:16 AMloo

Albert, I support on what you said.

Gaga, do u stay in a house currently? If you do your house has power line, home wiring, computer, TV, DVD player and electronic devices. If you have, please removed it all cos these devices emitted great EM or u can choose to stay in a house without electronic devices.

Definitely EM is bad for health.. U can see this link and give u more info in details

So, Gaga, what you going to do with this EM which already being around you. Can you give us a better solution or advices that we can prevent it. Thanks.

March 29, 2010 at 4:08 PMsWeetzz sTrawberry

Hi Gui Gui... The 20K rebate still going on as I been there last week.. I still thinking of buying the house. But the show house were really impressed me..

March 29, 2010 at 4:15 PMsWeetzz sTrawberry

Gui Gui...the 12 mths free maintenance fee is still applied for Semi-D and DST as well. This is what the salesperson told me during my last week visit.

March 31, 2010 at 4:49 PMming

Hi all new neighbour..

James and Loo: I booked the lot 176 with price RM265k. How about ur all?

April 1, 2010 at 4:39 PMming

hi Kason, nice to meet u.

As i know, in pg island have some condo or gated house, the management will charge you if you find outside ppl to do the reno for ur unit. Else u can use their ppl to do. I'm dunno about the price, but i think it wont cheaper than outside.
So, any 1 know the management of our new home is different? I think it's the good share to all. Thank you very much for someone can answer me.

April 1, 2010 at 7:37 PMAl

I asked the sales staff whether Tambun Indah have any recommended renovation contractors in January. They said "no". We can find any contractor or ID we want. Since Tambun Indah will manage our property for at least the first year, I would think this should be fine. There shouldn't be any extra charges for using the contractor we want.

April 1, 2010 at 8:32 PMAnonymous

Nice to meet you guys!!!
so happy to see everyone chit chatting here, talking about Pearl Garden.. LOL
get so much information from here.!

April 2, 2010 at 8:49 AMming

Thanks Albert for the good info sharing here.

April 2, 2010 at 2:00 PMloo

Hi, Ming, Kason, Albert, James, PSP and other Pearl Garden neighbour. Nice to know you as we are in same neighbourhood soon. I get the recent news that, phase 3 will going to launch cos remaining house in Phase 2 is not many. When phase 3 open for selling, the price will be extreme high compare to current price. So if you have any friends want to have this kind of house, make decision early rather waiting until price increase. It not worth to buy with high price but with same house size on the differences is the timing of buying. This is just an advice for our community in Pearl Garden.

Got 1 theory most people didn't understand. Last time, I didn't understand. When i understand, then it lead me to choose to buy house.

The theory is most of the people will say I don't have enough money to buy house and have to save more money to buy house in future. Ten years later, that person still can't afford to buy house because our salary every year increment or promotion can't match with increasing value of property every year (assume no recession occur) This is very logical. Please think about it.

April 2, 2010 at 2:25 PMUnknown

Certainly a good deal if there is no compulsion for us to use the developer's recommended contractors..

April 2, 2010 at 2:30 PMUnknown

Hi loo,

There is a saying, its better to buy a house now, than to wait to buy a house later, if you can afford it..

April 2, 2010 at 10:03 PMUnknown

Hi singlong,

How much is the price for phase 3 DST?

April 3, 2010 at 5:15 PMAl

Pearl Garden is sitting on top of dead palm oil trees. But technically speaking, it is sitting on top of a cemetery area since I am sure lots of living beings died on that plot of land since the beginning of time. So, what do you guys reckon are going on here? First, EM wave is bad for health, now it is a land haunted by ghost. What's next, it is actually a secret nuclear test site? or it is a site for Alien abduction. Kason have you heard these rumors as well? Did you know that a volcano is going to erupt over Pearl Garden? Oh let me put ?? to emphasize my point.

April 3, 2010 at 7:11 PMUnknown

H Kason,

I heard that ghosts are roaming the earth too, day and night, so are you going to move out from the earth too?

April 3, 2010 at 10:21 PMAnonymous


April 4, 2010 at 10:41 PMloo

Albert, good comment..and good debate.I support u, Albert

I guess Gaga and Kason is a same person but using different username. Hei, Gaga or Kason if you brave enough to write those comments, don't be so coward to delete it....unless what you say is not true....Don't be so coward...

April 5, 2010 at 8:54 PMoswald

Hi guys, my opinion is that we should welcome all critics, suggestions, positive or negative feedbacks in this forum. Everyone has an opportunity to support or refute claims made by others openly with facts. It's best to avoid using strong wordings as it may discourage sharing in this forum, in which case will render our discussion useless.

We know that all housing projects are not perfect, including Pearl Garden. So let's keep this as a harmonious and unbiased platform to share all the pros and cons of our future home, as well as to provide information to the potential neighbors :)


April 6, 2010 at 11:28 AMAl

I do apologize for being rude to "rumors" and "illogical" comments. I just feel that "rumors" as it is, is quite harmless but if goes unchecked it will be dangerous. With the dangerous EM and ex-cemetery talk going around, before you know it, these will be facts and no amount of solid proof is going to turn around these negative perception. I just feel that it is important to nip these malicious rumors in the bud and stop them dead. I apologize again for my past rudeness and future ones (one never knows what will come along). Let's concentrate on the more positive aspect shall we :) e.g. anyone heard anything about the proposed development of a hypermarket in Simpang Ampat? Or further planned development around that area aka Bandar Tasek Mutiara area,
I do hope the above is not just empty idea.

April 6, 2010 at 4:34 PMUnknown

I was agreed with foliage mentioned as above.

Hi Albert,
My intention are sharing, doesn't meant to create "illogical". if these thing made you unhappy. I should apologize for that.

Hi Loo,
I decided to removed the comment, after saw few feedback with used strong wording here. To my opinion. it is pointless for further discussion.

Hi Kason,

Due to limited land on city area,I been staying on ex-cemetery hill for past 8 years. Everything are fine. Until now the houses there still are the top of higher demand housing area.

April 6, 2010 at 6:31 PMAl

Hi gaga, in my opinion, there are sharing and they are "crying wolf". High Voltage pylon being bad for health, to me, is not sharing. It is rather a comment that tries to unsettle and panic me. If that is not your intention, I do apologize again. However, please do "make an informed judgement" before posting negative though in this forum. Your comment (to you) might be "just a though" but to others it might be "oh! xhit! What to do now? I don't want to have cancer in the future." This creates unnecessary panic. I am just trying to close the topic. Because to me, High Voltage Pylon may or may not be bad for health but there are worst things in life that is detrimental to health. I just don't get your motivation of discussing the effect of EM wave on health, and furthermore in this forum. There are others forum for that. Same goes for the ex-graveyard discussion. What is Kason worries or motivation to ask whether Pearl Garden is built on a Graveyard? I can only think of "panicking others". Please do enlighten me :) So that I can understand and offer a more sincere apology. Coz now I am just sorry for my rudeness, but I am not sorry for putting down you two :P

April 6, 2010 at 10:15 PMAnonymous

my apology too!

April 8, 2010 at 11:39 AMloo

Hi Gaga or Kason, pls dun feel that i being so offensive on both of u. Cos u both are still new in this forum...I do agree on Albert comment. if there is not proof, is better dun make any assumption. If really make any assumption in this forum, pls dun removed it. Let people view it and give comment. This is call forum. You get it..

Gaga, you mention, you removed the comment in order don't want to further any discussion.Maybe this your view but my view is different. This is forum, no matter i say it whether is right or wrong, I wont removed it cos everybody can view it and give comments to me. I can accept any critic which got point. Thanks.

April 8, 2010 at 2:02 PMming

I agree with loo..

You may talk whatever you want to talk.
But please also accept whatever ppl talk/comment as well. Else please dun talk in any forum.
That's my opinion.

April 10, 2010 at 5:09 PMUnknown

Hi Guys, have checked with local's there, existing area are palm oil trees land.

April 17, 2010 at 1:48 PMUnknown


Anyone started paying for the installments?

By the way, any cons of having our houses build on existing palm oil trees land? Like white ants issue etc?


April 17, 2010 at 7:28 PMAnonymous

Today signed the SPA with Lawyer.
Just got the info from Lawyer saying some of the phase 1 residents have started to pay the installments.

Previously have checked with developer about termites issues. They told me they will spray anti-termites gel before the construction completed.

April 22, 2010 at 1:12 PMUnknown

Ya..i was recieve letter from developer asking to pay 10%.

April 23, 2010 at 12:04 PMUnknown

Hi CK,

May I ask which phase you bought? And the letter from the developer is it sent to the bank and they CC copy to you?


April 23, 2010 at 2:02 PMUnknown

i bought Phase 1.
Yes, the letter was cc to me and attantion to Bank

April 27, 2010 at 6:47 PMwolf

anyone heard regard taman saujana permai? anyone stay around there, could i know the environment there....

April 28, 2010 at 12:47 PMUnknown

hi guys

Seek your advice regarding legal fees on Housing Loan Agreement.

For bank loan, i pay myself (not bank near)
My loan is RM225K, the lawyer charge me total fees about RM4200. Could somebody advice if the fess of RM4200 is reasonable?

Because base on my understanding:
Stamp Duty = RM225k x 0.5% = RM1125
Entitle 50% discount for 1st house, therefore = RM562.50
Legal Fees = First RM150K x 1% + RM75K x 0.7% = RM2025
Hence, total shall be RM2587.50

The lawyer chrage approx RM1650 for others eg title search, printing, filling fees etc

Could your advice is the charges reasonable?
Or how much is your legal fees for Loan?
thanks ya...

May 1, 2010 at 1:10 PMRoy Steven Ung

Simpang Ampat in general is a 'ghost town' currently. There isn't much development in this area except houses.

On the flies issue, yes it still exist. There isn't a day without flies and its a matter of whether the flies becomes worst or worser. There havent been any improvement on this, well except if you're in the business of making those 'sticky paper' that trap flies.

On a 'good day' we could use up to 10 pieces of the sticky paper, each trapping at least 300 flies. No kidding.

Apart from that, no other problem. Burglary seems common but with a good security system in place that irradiate the problem.

Oh by the way if you need to install security system, you can give me a buzz, Roy 016-451 5957. Security System, Photobeams, Alarm, CCTV Configured for Internet viewing via StreamyX etc

May 2, 2010 at 3:12 PMAl

Wow!!! Steven Ung or Roy. Glad to know that you are discouraging people to go to Simpang Ampat and yet still ask people to call you up to install security system. ???!!! Anyway, agreed that Simpang Ampat is still under development. As for it being a ghost town, I am not so sure. Check up the definition of "ghost town" first will you?
I see a new school just being builed "Boon Beng", I see Yit Sin under construction. I see new residential area being developed, not only Pearl Garden. So I am not too sure it being a ghost town. I see that it is an up and coming town instead. Not going to be a big town, but a developing small area community nonetheless. By the way, Pearl Garden is a gated community. Should be safer than your "security system" :) Good luck in your sales yeah. Hope you make lots of money selling security system in your "ghost" town ;)

CK, I am not sure about the legal fees. Both my legal fees, sales agreement and loan agreement are waived. Can't help you out there mate.

May 3, 2010 at 9:31 AMloo

Hi, recently i busy with my job. Since the houses under construction. No point discuss about construction.

I have a better suggestion. If better anyone can provide sample nice decoration for each section in house for sharing. So each resident in Pearl Garden have a good decoration in house.

Hi Steven Ung. I guess u better check the forum conversation history before u write anythings without any proof and make useless assumption...if not u will kena teruk-teruk by me and albert... like some user in this forum...if u plan to do sales, stated ur price quotation in forum if u dare...dun ask ppl to call u.. is outdated...i know many ppl who doing security system, cctv, internet viewing n etc more than u...if dare stated ur price and spec....

then i ask u Steven Ung, do u know what is the land before and now Taman Jentayu house in simpang ampat? I know the land previously...

May 4, 2010 at 11:09 AMDonny

fyi...there's a Pearl Garden group in Facebook. perhaps you guys wana continue discussion there instead of this thread.

May 4, 2010 at 6:06 PMAl

Hi Donny, more information about the Facebook group will be helpful. I tried a search on facebook but I can't find a group called Pearl Garden. Please enlightened me :) By the way, thank you very much for the heads up.

May 8, 2010 at 1:58 PMming

Hi Albert, are you bought the Phase 1?

May 9, 2010 at 10:16 AMAl

yes. Why?

May 13, 2010 at 6:25 PMAl

Hi guys, what would your thought be on asking our developer to change minor spec in our house. For instance, I would like the 1st floor tiles to be similar to the ground floor tiles i.e. 2inch tiles. And the layout of the stair cases as well. I don't like the triangle layout on one of the steps because I feel it is quite dangerous when going down the stairs. I would also like to have hot water piping instead of just cold water. Are we able to ask our developer to change that?

May 14, 2010 at 5:25 PM亨利陈

can someone tell me the price of semi-d and land size? is there any units left?

May 15, 2010 at 8:44 AMming

hi Ming, the developer have not reached phase 2 construction stage yet. They are still constructing phase 1. Hopefully can reach phase 2 by year end and phase 3 mid year 2011. Then we can have our house end 2012 which should be really cool :D

June 1, 2010 at 12:04 PMUnknown

Knowing that Pearl Garden was launched Phase 3.
This is the final phase?
Total how many unit on this project?
