About me – introduction

I am Teoalida and I made this website since 2009 to show various works made by me, share knowledge and educational material, promote my services, and make new (business) friends.

I have a variety of hobbies, doing research, writing articles and making databases about real estate and cars, as well as designing own housing models. Also playing games that involve buildings.

I do not have a full-time job, I fill my time with part-time work at customer request or from personal interest and sell works via website, also doing voluntary work when I can help large number of people.

Feel free to contact me if you have any enquiry about AutoCAD design, architecture, real estate, research, data mining and analysis, or any other field covered by articles of this website.

All the articles, drawings, 3D models, Word and Excel databases shown on website, is the work of ONE person. Respect my copyright! Except the photographs, which are linked to the original source or the source is indicated, and HDB brochures.

Portfolio of works and services offered

While most people spend their free time playing games or chatting with friends, myself I developed many creative / artistic hobbies, since childhood I was playing in AutoCAD (3D modelling), Word and Excel, etc. They remain forever and can be shown on website. Even if some works have no real use (playing games isn’t an useless activity too?).

Most of pre-2012 works can be called pure hobbies, done from personal interest rather for a specific customer. Since 2012 I concentrate on working for people and abandoned most of non-paid works. Please leave comments, constructive critics appreciated more than praises.

AutoCAD design

Graphic DesignMy dad is using AutoCAD since 1994, I learned AutoCAD myself while watching him working and made my first drawing in 1998, over years I made numerous drawings from personal interest (hobby) as well as working for my parents or for customers who contacted me via this website.

Feel free to hire me for any CAD-related work, but I have most experience (and most customers) for architectural design (because my website promote it). I can also do paper-to-CAD redrafting services.

 

Housing design – the Virtual City

Apartment DesignI started self-studying architecture in 2008 and I made “Teoalida’s Virtual City” with over 20 apartment block concepts designed for high-density, dozens of apartment layouts from 30 sqm 2-room studio to 150 sqm 5-room and even 200+ sqm penthouses, based on an average 25-35 square meters per capita and 100 sqm average apartment size.

Although designed primarily for artistic purpose, they are fully livable homes and can be built.

 

House DesignStarting from 2010, I completed the Virtual City with landed houses too, detached, semi-detached, terraced and cluster houses (landed condominiums), small and large house plans plus 3D models, currently ranging from 50 sqm 2-bedroom to over 300 sqm and 6 bedrooms, inspired from different parts of world.

(virtual city – because I am not a developer, I don’t have capital to build them).

 

 

Housing design – architectural services

House DesignThe “Virtual City” 3D artistic hobby, have impressed people dreaming to build a house but also architects, and turned into business since 2012.

My experience was originally limited to making efficient floor plans and 3D models, but since 2013 I learned to make “construction drawings” by laws, fully-dimensioned floor plans, elevations, sections, as required for building permit.

However, I never enjoyed this job due to many bad customers from third-world countries who solicit a service for free, do not want to pay for it, or pay too little, and headache projects, moreover database services are by far more successful, so I decided in 2015 to STOP offering architectural services, unless there is a special project.

Palace design in AutoCAD

Palace DesignProbably the most beautiful piece of art that I ever made in AutoCAD, this 3D model is a virtual reconstruction of a REAL, abandoned building, which today was left in ruins.

Originally designed in 2006, I improved it in 2009 and 2014 to show you my abilities of 3D modelling in AutoCAD and geometry design.

 

 

Furniture & interior design in AutoCAD

Interior DesignIf I design buildings why I would not design 3D models of furniture and interior design too?

I do not have experience in interior design as high like the experience in architecture design, but… feel free to contact me and help me training!

 

 

Word books & Excel databases – data entry and web scraping services

World Cities Database

I am using Word since 1997 and my dad encouraged me write book-like things, but I learned also Excel myself and since 2003 I am using it more than Word, and today working in Excel represent my primary source of income.

For many years, manual data entry in Excel (sourcing from books, as seen in this video, or manual copy-pasting from websites), was my only way of creating databases. A slow process which limited the size of the databases I could make. Even in this slow process I made about 40 databases about cars, geography, real estate, gaming, etc, from pure hobby.

Starting from 2015 I learned web scraping, meaning programming a software to visit a list of given pages, copy specific data and put it into a CSV spreadsheet automatically, allowing me to quickly create new databases and sell via my website.

– The Geography works, country area and population, list of cities, etc, made in 1998-2005 writing data manually from Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia, abandoned after connecting to internet in 2005 and discovering Wikipedia. Improved and published on website for first time in 2015.

– The Music Database with song ratings according my personal preferences, one of the most USELESS things that I ever made, started in 2005 and as 2016 still expanding it.

– The Skyscrapers Database, made in 2015, one of my first databases where I used a program to automatically scrap data from a website.

– The Mobile Phone Database, made in 2016 via web scraping.

What will be the next database to do?

Real estate database – data mining and analysis

HDB Database

One of my biggest research and data mining projects is the Singapore HDB Database, a table of 14000+ buildings with block number, street address, postal code, year build, number of units breakdown by flat type, upgrading programmes, etc. An original compilation of data centralized from multiple sources plus own research.

Started in 2009 from personal interest and put ON HOLD because the potential of turning into a business was under question, after discovering potential of Car Database, I resumed working at HDB Database in 2014 and finalized in 2015, after hundreds hours of work, it been purchased by several real estate companies.

In addition of HDB original research, I am offering Condo Database made via web scraping, and HDB Resale Flat Prices Database that include over 60 charts made in Excel.

Another project is the Hong Kong Housing Database, table with 1000+ public and private housing estates, made in 2011 for an insurance company (my first large project done at customer request and not as personal interest/hobby).

Car database – research and data analysis

Car DatabaseDue to my passion for automobiles and obsession for doing research, tables and statistics, I started in 2003 a car encyclopedia, several lists in .DOC format and tables in .XLS format which allows you to sort and filter car models. This include a table with 20000+ car models, detailed with 50+ columns of technical data, which required over 1000 hours of work!

The hobby turned into a business since 2012. Every year, over 100 companies, primarily from Europe and America, looking for a complete, accurate and frequently updated vehicle database are buying my Excel tables. but only after extensive transformation to make my databases suitable for the unexpected audience.

Car design in AutoCAD

Car DesignOne of my older passions was for automobiles, since 2000 I designed side views of few real cars in Paint, also my own car models, in Paint and later in 3D in AutoCAD.

“Teoalida’s Cars” are not very modern or sport cars, but they are designed with as many details is possible, and rendered with all photo-realistic effects available in AutoCAD, to showcase my skills of 3D modelling.

I no longer design cars. Last car I designed was in 2007 (photo).

 

Mapping design

Map DesignAs related with architecture and urban explorer passion, I love to design maps too!

Between 2004 and 2007 I voluntarily designed artistic maps for my city and nearby towns, vectorial drawings in AutoCAD then colored in Paint, but this turned in a high-effort job with no much usage and generating too little income.

In 2009-2010 I also made a very basic map of Singapore in AutoCAD which I published on website in 2016 and we will see if there is sufficient demand from people to worth completing it with more details.

Housing around the World, real estate research, educational articles

WorldI love exploring the world to study architecture, housing and living conditions, and write articles about this field. This hobby is usually NOT money-making.

Originally (2009) a page with general info about 3 countries, plus a page dedicated for Singapore HDB history, photos, statistics and floor plans, because it was my main source of inspiration for “Teoalida’s Virtual City” so I studied it extensively. One year later I made a similar study for Hong Kong, to design apartments inspired from it too.

The research expanded to over 20 pages for Housing in Singapore, 3 pages for Housing in Hong Kong, plus 11 pages with general info about various countries/regions. See also The 10 Greatest Cities in the World!

Gaming – The Sims housing

The Sims 2 planned citiesThe favorite game for most architecture students!

Before starting designing buildings in AutoCAD in 2008, I practiced my urban planning ability even in The Sims 2 where in 2007-2008 I planned nice-looking big cities with apartment blocks (although non-functional), towers and houses, on Isla Segundo, Pleasant View, and Starling Springs (photo).

I keep playing the game and I also build functional homes, efficient or beautiful houses and apartments, and I play the game in normal way, life simulation in them. I offer over 40 houses for FREE download for The Sims 2 and 3.

Web design

I can NOT say that I am a web expert, but I made my website myself without any professional help!

I have high SEO knowledge that helped my website to be on 1st page of Google for dozens of keywords and raising traffic from 100 visitors per day in January 2012 to 800 visitors per day in 2014.

I do not know PHP yet so I cannot make complex websites on custom-made platforms. In terms of coding and programming, my knowledge is limited to HTML, CSS and WordPress platform. 90% people do not even know these basic stuff, so feel free to contact me for any help related to website building, promotion, optimization, etc.

Frequently asked questions

Where is your office located? Can I pay you a visit?

I offer services ONLINE to people from all over the world, as typical freelancers do. I do not have any office and I do not meet customers. Even if you live just few kilometers away from me, I prefer to not meet in real life unless is absolutely necessary. If you need to hire someone to work at your office, or travel somewhere, I am NOT the right person for you.

What is all this mix of stuff on same website?
Are you designer, researcher, database provider, gamer, or…?

I am ALL OF THEM! This is PERSONAL website and my life is very diverse!

What is your profession / primary job?

I do not have any profession and I never had a full-time job, all my income is from part-time jobs and sales of my works.

I love working online, while doing architectural design for someone, I can do customer service job and sell a database to someone else. I have a diverse life and this is nicer than having a full-time job and do only one thing 8 hours every day. This allow me to chat with website visitors and offer a little free consultation without disturbing my “job”.

Not every day is money-productive. I also do voluntary work, but ONLY if is in benefit of many people and will improve website traffic (example: writing about real estate). If you solicit me to do a project just for YOU, you should PAY me!

Do you get paid to chat with people? Do you help people for free?

I am NOT employed, affiliated with any government or company, or get paid “to help people”. I am independent, this is my personal website and only YOU can pay if the consultation or services offered helped you!

Certain works are done voluntarily, personal interest, working for myself not paid by any anyone. But if YOU are interested in any work, you need to pay for it. I am not obligated to work for YOU for free (exception are people contacting for consultation that can be done via chat and do not require any work.

Are you a company who offer services or this website is made as hobby?

LOL… only companies can offer services? Being an 1-person business there is no point to register as company. Most of what you see on website are hobbies, but if you define hobby = non-profit, my hobbies show my abilities and help me to get customers paying for various projects, so should be called business website. Am I right?

Currently I may not fully use the business potential of my hobbies. Suggestions for making money are welcome!

How much does this website cost?

$10 per year, the domain name.
$60 per year with 50% off, shared hosting (2012-2015).
$130 per year, the VPS from Hosting24 (since March 2015).
$200 per year, the VPS from VPS.us (since September 2016).
$200 per year, the chat software from Zopim.

    Give me my money by law I have 14 days and you have to give me back! I will not fight with you here
    You sell the wrong database !! Wasted money and this one sells a bad product yet does not want to give back the scammer money! Watch out for him!
    it is not normal ! He tells me that the car of November 2002 is a car of 2003. Attention attention Attention! Fraud!!!!!!

    1. The sample of car database warns you that years may be a bit inaccurate, but you proceeded to purchase. If you compare my database with another database, do not claim that other one is correct, because nobody is 100% correct, especially at production years. For your idiocy: a car model can be presented in November 2002 and start deliveries to customers in 2003. Despite of this, my database has been purchased by dozens of people and NOBODY complained like you.

      I sent you a second car database with more accurate year-month production and you ask again for refund claiming that it is a virus. From when an Excel file can be a virus? You’re just an idiot who want to use databases for free, post bad comments, make PayPal disputes and shout REFUND! REFUND! all time.

      Would have been better if you contacted me BEFORE purchasing, if I was seeing your attitude I was suggesting you to NOT purchase anything from me!
