5 Key Things to Consider Before You Move





The place you live is one of the most important aspects of life. Where you choose very much depends on what your priorities are, but pretty much everyone is looking for a good neighbourhood with great facilities nearby. However, looking from the outside, it can be difficult to make sure that where you are moving actually lives up to expectations.


Here are just a few of the top things to consider if you are planning on moving home anytime soon.


Cost of Living


As well as the actual cost of the property itself, you will also need to calculate roughly how much the cost of living will be. Ultimately, it’s worth doing your research so you are well prepared. It’s no good moving to a new place only to find out that you will be totally priced out from enjoying a decent standard of living while you are there.


Commute Distance






You may well have found what seems to be the perfect area to live, but if you end up spending hours of your day travelling to and from work, this may well significantly reduce your enjoyment of being there. Mainly because you won’t actually be there, but in your car instead! Think about how far away you are from your current home so you can work out the logistics of the actual moving process and then research moving companies in the local area. It’s also worth checking out what other type of transportation is available nearby. You may find out that public transportation will end up being the most efficient way to travel.


How Well Does the Area Match Your Lifestyle


It may well be that you love the hustle and bustle of a big city, preferring to be close to bars, restaurants and cafes. It may be that you love the great outdoors, so prefer to be in an area where there are more parks, cycle paths and open space. Ultimately, the type of lifestyle you live will be significantly affected by the area in which you call home.


The Type of People Who Live Nearby






If you have a young family, you will probably want to live in an area with other people who are in a similar situation. The same goes if you have kids who have already left the house, or are a young person looking to meet other young people. Though it’s nice to socialise with different types of people, it’s also good to know that there are other people in a similar situation to you who live nearby.


The Types of Jobs Nearby


You may already have a job before you move, but it’s nice to know that there are other options out there. There are some areas that are perfect for certain types of job, so it’s worth checking this out before you make the move.

Hopefully this list will have given you a bit of a better idea of the things that you need to consider before making your move. It’s worth taking the time to do your research so you are sure that this neighbourhood is the place for you.

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 …
