Renovations And Home Repairs

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 the workers came and did some renovations in the house recently.   If I have a choice, I would delay doing any kind of repair work in the house but too bad, it could not be delayed any longer, in fact, it was long overdue.  Finally, I decided to get it done over with otherwise my house might get "flooded" when the heavy rains come again!

Once the workers started to drill, I began to shudder, not because of the noise but the mess I have to put up with for a couple of days!  Each day the workers left my house, the first thing I did was to sweep and mopped the whole house again otherwise I would be having sleepless nights.  So what happened to my house that needed fixing?  It was the roofs that gave some problem.  Rain started to seep in at certain areas of the house, yellow patches were obviously seen and sooner or later, the rain or the water would get into the ceiling and down to the floor.  By then I could not imagine what my house would look like.   

According to the contractor who did the repair for my house, he advised that the roof tiles need to be replaced for the whole house.  Oh my goodness!  That would certainly cost a fortune.  Yes, my house is very old and on one hand, it might be costly but if I think of the long run, it is a great way to add some serious value to my home by looking up.  If the roof has cracked tiles or holes in, that will damage its value so I guess I better sort it out before it becomes more damaged.   

Weather is really unpredictable nowadays, one day it is hot and sunny and another day, it is raining cats and dogs.  Strong wind is a norm nowadays, it blows off flower pots on walls, kind of shocking, really.  The contractor has checked the gutters on the roof as well.  A lot of debris and dead leaves has accumulated over the years and can lead to blockage in the long run.  I guess it is time to call for the gutter replacement Perth if you are having the same problem as mine and you are staying in Perth.  As it is written, gutters that become blocked or fall into a state of disrepair, it can lead to flooding, soil erosion, a build up of water on your roof that will cause great damage and other related problems.  It is no good trying to make your property look beautiful if you have a ton of repairs that need to be done.  Invest in having repairs done early on before it is too late.  Ignoring them too long, you will need to pay a lot more than having them to be fixed now.

As for my house, it is now fully renovated and done with.  No doubt I have spent quite a fortune and lots of cleaning up, I feel so much relieved now that I can just sit back and relax, no more worries about heavy rains and strong winds!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
