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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
