Sleepless Night In IPOH

Busy and Tension again! I think I have mentioned many times in my previous posts on kitchen renovation. Well, it is time to do it after procrastinating for so long-a-time already.   I am always worried when it rains especially heavy ones. The water will come dripping down the side wall and each time it rains, I have to get ready the mops and lots of rags... very tiring, right?

Firstly, I went asking around for contractors... but managed to get one quotation only and I think his rates is quite reasonable... so I felt no need to ask around anymore... (like to get work done up fast!)  And renovation started yesterday.....
First day.....
Before the contractor left, he said "Better don't rain today"
And I got worried..... 
And true enough, it started pouring this evening...
I came home to find my kitchen nearly flooded...
The rain water came dripping down on all sides....
Never before I felt so frantic!
My kitchen drawers are all wet and some are spoilt..
I have to check out some websites and maybe I have to order new ones,  
something like these 36 inch Drawer Slides
Quickly lined up all the pails to "catch" water....
And called the contractor screaming....  "HELP! HELP!!"
He came almost immediately after my SOS call...
Kept assuring me that tomorrow will be alright...
All holes will be repaired... all sides will be patched up....
As for tonight...
It will be a Sleepless Night in Ipoh for me...

  8. Why didn't he cover it with a large tarp, and anchor it down with something heavy so the sides wouldn't blow up and off?

  18. Not to worry too much as the saying goes "water is 'choy' " so spent little on renovation but big ton$ coming soon.

    ReplyDelete
  19. From your photos, I cannot figure out what renovation you are doing. Even for the brick walls that have yet to be cemented, the contractor can covered up with those orange and blue plastic first to keep the rain water out.

  20. aiyoyo... hope its done soon!

    ReplyDelete
  21. my goodness! I hate holed ceiling where the rain will drip in. Well, hope everything will be fine soon.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
