Don't Forget To Do These Crucial Things Before Moving Day!

There are a couple of extremely important things you should never forget to do before your big move. As there’s so much to remember, ensuring you’ve done these things can be easier said than done. If you’re moving soon, read on and make sure you’ve got everything done before the big day!

Label As You Pack
Labelling things as you pack up your items will take a little longer, but help you to no end in the long run. You’ll be able to unpack much faster when you arrive at your new home. Not only that, you’ll know exactly where something is if you need to grab it fast. Make sure you list everything in the box clearly. You can also write down the room it’s supposed to go in.

Find Lost Keys
You might have keys lying around and have no idea what they are for. Handing every key over to the estate agents or new owners is crucial. You don’t want to leave them with an incomplete home! Check that you have the keys for all doors, windows, bolts, sheds, and anything else that has a lock. You’ve probably heard stories about homeowners who arrived only to be unable to get into their new home because they weren’t given a certain key.

Hire Movers
Hiring movers months in advance is crucial. You’ll make sure you get the day you need this way, as well as the services of a trustworthy moving company. Shiply Removals are a good example of what you should be looking for in a moving company.

Host A Moving Party
Host a moving party so that you can say goodbye properly. You may not need to do this if you’re only moving down the road. However, it could still be a good idea to do this as a way to say goodbye to your old house. If you don’t want to host a moving party, you could always host a moving in party. You can make memories in your new home right away by doing this!

Switch Utility Services
Make sure you call utility companies in advance too. This is especially important if you’ve bought a property that was previously empty, as things may need to be connected so you can enjoy them the second you get there.

Explore Your New Area
Go exploring in your new area and find fun things to do. Have a look around the shops, go for a walk, and make sure you get acquainted with it properly. This will make it feel so much more like home. As you do this, you could also consider introducing yourself to your new neighbours. They might even offer to help you unpack on the day!

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 …
