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!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
