Home Improvement Drills

I really don't like renovations to be done in the house especially when we are still staying in it.  But  no choice, I had to be around when they came and did it yesterday.   Yes, it was long overdue already, finally I decided to get it done over with, now my whose house is like "railway track"... wiring here and there... every corner... it is not a nice sight...

When they start drilling, I shuddered... wouldn't want to imagine the mess that the drilling caused...  but no choice, when they finished one part, I cleaned up... that made it easier in the end....

Actually I didn't want to do that, the worker suggested it... he said, "Give me the broom, let me sweep for you so that the dust won't be everywhere......."  Once he said that, I quickly took the broom and cleaned up...

Drilling time.... 
Messy time....
Dusty everywhere...
SOS!!!
HELP!!
As they worked, I cleaned as much as I could... 
Finally when they were done, I mopped the floor three times..
But I still could feel the dust under my feet....
Am I eccentric?
I guess I am.... 
I had a Good sleep last night... too exhausted already!

  2. Oh, a big headache, the knocking & drilling, just like last year when I renovate (extend) my kitchen. Worst part, everyday has to sweep the dust, mop the floor and next day repeat the same thing. Mine took one month plus to finish. Can you imagine?

  6. Yea, the whole house will become very dusty, it takes some effort and time to clean it off completely

  7. I am also very scared of having to fix things once moved in. I read somewhere that to keep vacuuming as the person drills so that the dust will not fly everywhere. Aircon for the bedroom?

  11. Me too, I hate all the noise and the mess after the renovation.. But what to do?

    ReplyDelete
  12. aiyoh, i am just wondering will the workers curse you in heart, because you were cleaning while they were working.. it make me feel like this case: you go into a shop, you are browsing the clothes and the sales girl is following behind you, whatever you touched, she will want to rearrange them even she doesn't need to.. haha!! but probably i just think too much, the worker was indeed very considerate to ask for a broom from you :)

  16. I hate those renovation and dust. Usually those workers will use vacuum cleaner to vacuum the dust while they drill to minimise the dust flying around.

    And I understand the mopping process. I remember I mopped 3 times too when moved into my new home and yet still can feel the dust around. I also had a good night sleep that night. Lol.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
