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 for your house or business premises 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 or new premises for your business by checking out this link Careful Hands Business Relocation. 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!


When you do these things before moving day, you’ll have better time in your new home. You’ll be able to unpack swiftly, and make yourself at home right away. Let me know if there are any tips you swear by when you move. Thanks for reading!

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
