We finally got our new gate on the 5 Jan 2016.
A lot of preparation was done before the new gate was fixed.
First and foremost, the boss paid a deposit of RM50 at the Homez fair recently. It's on the 29 Nov 2015. After a month, they came to tear down our old gate which had not been functioning automatically for a couple of years. We had to push the gate and it was tough as the gate was real heavy. But luckily, we had a smaller manual gate.
In fact, the boss had once paid a deposit and it didn't materialize. This time, when he did it again, we were still skeptical about it.
Finally, our dream came true and the boss had to pay a hefty sum of RM8320 just for the gate itself. Not sure of the other payment yet.
So nice to have a new gate. The old one was fixed in year 2000 when we first shifted in. Imagine the gate had been around for 16 years..
