How To Keep Your Family Safe During A Storm

Some storms can be fun to watch, such as summer rainstorms that don't cause any serious damage. However, while some storms can be beautiful, others can be dangerous and potentially lethal. If the weatherman is reporting that a big storm is about to roll through your area, then follow these tips on how you can keep your family safe, no matter what the weather conditions are.

Have A Radio That Doesn't Depend On Electricity

It's important to have a battery-operated radio on hand. This will allow you to keep listening to the weather report for updates, even if you lose power. While you might be able to listen to the weather report via your cellphone, cell towers can often lose service during serious weather incidents, while radio towers tend to be more durable. A battery-operated radio is the best way to stay updated.

Be Wary Of Flooding

During a rainstorm, the biggest risk is flash flooding. Flash flooding is what happens when more water is coming down than what the sewer system is prepared to handle. In the event of a flood, it's important that you move to the highest place in your house. Don't risk trying to save your belongings if flood water is pooling in your home. Not only would you risk drowning, but flood water is often mixed with sewage and is highly unsanitary and dangerous.

Stay Indoors

Going outside during a rainstorm is dangerous. High winds can create projectiles and the threat of lightning also exists. Unless being in your home has become dangerous, it's important that you stay indoors. In almost all serious weather situations, staying indoors is preferable to going outside. The only reason to leave your home during a serious storm is if flooding has made it impossible to remain inside.

A storm can be quite serious and dangerous. However, it's essential that you put the safety of you and your family first. Don't worry about your belongings; indeed, you can always seek out storm damage restoration services after the storm has passed. During a storm, stay safe and don't worry about your things.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
