Picture Credit
Have you already done your spring cleaning? If you have, you’ll be all ready to get your house ready for summer. Not only is spring a fantastic time to deep clean your house, but it’s also the perfect season for home maintenance. There is probably a lot to do in your home before summer arrives. Not sure what you should be doing? Don’t worry; this guide will help you! Here are five tips for getting your home ready for summer.





Replace Any Old Windows
Replacing windows is one of those jobs that we tend to sit on for a long time and never get round to. Now that the weather is getting better, it’s perfect for hiring someone in to help you get rid of old windows and install new ones. You don’t need to replace every single window in your home all at once. It is often better to do them in stages. You could do one side of the house every spring until they are all done. If you are planning on getting new windows, flick through a brochure before you pick a style. There are different ones to pick from, including casement windows and sash windows.


Bring Summer Inside
Possibly the easiest way to get your home ready for summer – bring pot plants and flowers into your home! Take a trip to your local gardening centre and buy a lot of seeds and bulbs that are suitable to be grown indoors. Once you bring all these houseplants into your rooms, your home will be filled with bright colours and a fresh fragrance!


Clean and Replace Filters
Your heating system will have vents and filters in it. These will need cleaning regularly. Once they have been used for a few years, you will need to replace them. If you don’t feel quite so confident doing this yourself, hire out a professional handyman. There are also filters in your washing machine and tumble dryer that will need cleaning. These are very easy to do, any you will be able to sort them out yourself.


Clean Down Your Barbecue
Summer is on its way, and that means barbecue season is almost upon us! Don’t be caught out by forgetting to clean your barbecue! Even if you cleaned it at the end of last summer, it is always best to give it another quick wipe down. Especially if it has been in storage, as it could have gathered a lot of dust.


Clean Out Your Gutters
Spring is the time when you need to get your ladder out and see to your gutters. A lot of debris and dead leaves can build up over winter. This can lead to them getting blocked. Simply climb the ladder with a bucket and take out all the rubbish that you find in them.


To truly enjoy your home through the summer, you need to get it in shape now! Then you can sit back and relax during the hot and sunny summer days!

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…
