5 Ways To A Homely Home

As a homeowner, creating a more loving environment for your family to grow is always high on your agenda. In truth, the home improvement challenge is a battle that is never fully completed. After all, every property will need modernisation from time to time.  However, it’s not all about building a home that looks nice and pretty. You should also take your responsibilities into account. That means making the most of your resources. If you can achieve this with decisions that will benefit other people, then that’s a bonus too.  Let's start with some ways to make our homes a more comfortable place to live in.  Here are 5 ways to declutter our homes for better living for ourselves and our love ones.

Firstly, start by creating a list of places and areas in your home, beginning with the easiest part of the house.  Do one part at a time and it would be a great beginning to clean up the master bedroom, followed by the other rooms.  Always start on one section, for example if the house has two storeys, then do one at a time.  Best is to begin at the top level and going down consecutively and accordingly.   

Secondly, start filling up a big trash bag.  Those unused clothing and other stuff that are redundant but taking up a lot of space in the house, it is time to clear and fill up the big trash bag.  But do not throw away the stuff that are still usable, they can be given away for Goodwill. 

Thirdly, we can organize the cleaning up by using some huge boxes.  This is the most common technique used in our home.  Use a marker pen to name the boxes, one to give away and naming the items as we start to relocate the stuff from one area to another.  This way we can remember where we have chuck our items instead of ravaging them all over again after everything is kept and done.  If our homes do not have sufficient storage for all the boxes, we can consider storing them at this warehouse temporarily till we find our new place.

Fourth point, after all being said and done, we can start upcycling, it is now a growing trend.  We can utilize old items which no longer serve their initial purpose.  That will go into a box stating "Tender Loving Care."  Not all items can be saved to improve our lives but that does not mean they can't help someone else.  One man's junk can be another's treasure.  

Fifth point, remove harmful elements from our homes.  Green living is something that we should all aim for, however cutting waste is not the only option.  You can have an equally huge impact by making smarter choices.  Meanwhile treating early signs of damp and other harmful elements can protect the building and your family too.  This means that you will be preserving resources and your finances as well.  It might sound like a small change, but the impact is massive.  

After all these being said and done, we can look forward to our new home or environment.  As the saying goes, Home is Where the Heart is!  Happy Living!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
