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.

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
