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!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
