New Home, What Next


Congratulations on buying your first property; you’ll be excited and ready for your future ahead. It’s no secret that moving is right up there with potentially some of the most stressful life situations you’ll ever experience. However, (believe it or not) moving day doesn’t have to be a terrible time, and it is possible to feel confident and positive when it comes around. Firstly, look at it as an exciting fresh start, and keep remembering that you’ve worked hard for this apartment or house, and you should enjoy your achievement. Secondly, understand that with a little hard work, planning, and organization; the day will go as smoothly and seamlessly as possible, and you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.

So, it’s time to get your first home and moving day ready so that you can write a list of everything that can be done before the big day arrives. From things you can complete yourself, to jobs that you’ll need to call in the professionals for; there’s no time like the present to start preparing. You want to remember your move positively, and, you might even make some fun memories along the way. The following are some ideas, tips, and inspiration for those who are about to tackle their moving day with the power or preparation, for a stress-free and smooth experience ahead.

Protect Your Items

You’ll probably have collected an array of things that you want to keep in the future, and take to your new property. Therefore, you’ll also want to protect them, and insurance is your best option to do this (apart from being careful on moving day). Take a look at companies like One Sure Insurance who will be able to provide home insurance and cover the things that matter the most; both financially and sentimentally. You’ll have peace of mind that your precious cargo will be taken care of for the years ahead in your new abode.

Book The Right People For The Job

Unless you’re the proud owner of a removal van and a lot of heavy lifting doesn’t phase you; you’ll need to ensure that you’ve already searched for moving companies. Finding a reputable removal company will become more difficult the longer you leave it; great teams get booked-up fast, so don’t get left with people that won’t take care of your delicate smaller items and your favorite (and expensive) furniture. You’ll also need to ensure that you’re hooked up to everything you need when you’ve arrived in your new home. Therefore, try to arrange for someone to come and install your internet, gas, electricity, and ensure that your plumbing is running smoothly so that you can enjoy a hot shower after all that heavy lifting.

Never Stop Organizing

You’ll want to make sure that you can find things with ease when it comes to unpacking in your new home. Therefore, ensure that all your boxes are labeled with the room you want the removal team to put them in and the contents of the box. Wrap-up fragile items well, and again, label them clearly so that you don’t open a box full of smashed or broken objects.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
