How to Find a Quality House Moving Service in KL

 Not sure how to find a quality house moving service in KL? We have got your back. House moving often means a new fresh start in life and is indeed something to be looked forward to. However, it might get stressful as it involves many complicated tasks. Since moving personal possessions can be tedious, it is important to find a quality house moving service so that you can have peace of mind when moving. 

Factors to Consider When Looking for a Quality House Moving Service:

- Quotation

Price is key when considering engaging a house moving or lorry rental service. You should get quotations from different companies and compare the prices before you make up your mind. Make sure to not just take the lowest price and ignore the quality of service.

- Referrals from People You Know

The best and fastest way to know which movers are worth hiring is through referrals from people you know or families. Since they have the first-hand experience of moving, they could even recommend the best movers they hired before.

- Payment Terms

You should take note of the payment terms offered by the companies. You can expect to pay a small deposit before the moving day. However, you should be aware if one asks you to pay a large fee upfront as it may be one of the tactics of a scammer.

- Responsive Customer Service

To check if the service provider is an established company, one aspect is to look at its customer service. A reputable moving company will always show that they are responsive, approachable, friendly, and always ready to give their customers support in solving their moving problems.

- Registered Local Business

Do double check if the mover service in KL you choose is a registered local business to avoid falling into the traps of scams. A proper legal and licensed moving company should not be afraid to show their company registration details and related documentation when you ask about their information.

- Reviews

If you could not find any recommendations from your friends and family, another way is to read reviews online. You should be able to check out the reviews on Facebook and Google on their services to determine which best suits your requirements.

Crabs On Delivery

WE SIMPLY LOVE CRABS... and through my neighbour, I got to know that one shop sells fresh seafood.  Fresh, nice and cheaper than in the market and they only come in around 3pm in the afternoon.  They have fish, squids, sea prawns, clams, cockles and I usually buy clams from them.  Each kilo is RM14, the longish clams aka lala.... 

On this particular evening, I ordered Crabs from this shop.  If I know how to slaughter them, I would have taken them home.  Each kilo is only RM55 if I buy them but since I have the fear of jabbing their heart, I told the owner to cook them instead.  I ordered 3kg of crabs for RM85 per kg and to be cooked into two different flavours, sweet and sour crabs and "kam heong" style (with basil and chilies).... 

Six of us had a crabby dinner that evening... we couldn't finished the spicy ones but we managed to on the following day.

Each pot holds 1 1/2 kg of crabs...
Thank goodness these are not spicy....
Whereas these are super hot.....
But very tasty and fragrant....
Curry chicken bun..... 
Our spicy dinner for the night....

The Benefits of Installing Awnings in Your Homes or Businesses

Awnings can protect your home from a range of harmful elements. Awnings are a type of roof that stretches over a place to provide shade and protection from rain, wind, and snow. Awnings are commonly found on the windows and doors of houses and businesses. In addition, they protect the interior finishes, reduce air conditioning costs, increase resale value, and provide storm protection. Awnings large enough to cover a large outside area are frequently used by restaurants for outdoor dining, parties, or receptions. An awning is commonly painted with the name, business, and address of a commercial building, functioning as a sign or billboard. Listed below are some of the benefits and consequences of commercial awnings tampa fl. Read on to learn how to use these structures to protect your home.

Using less energy to cool your home offsets your carbon footprint and releases fewer greenhouse gases. Awnings also help you save on your energy bills, as they reduce your energy bills by up to 24 percent in Boston, Phoenix, and St. Louis. 

According to recent studies, awnings can reduce the amount of air conditioning used by up to 30% in some homes. This is because they block solar heat gain from the sun. In the United States, awnings are responsible for about 20% of air conditioning load. Awnings are a smart choice as energy costs rise and people grow more ecologically concerned.

How To Save And Spend Wisely

There has been an increase in the number of people getting into financial trouble for the past few years. These are mostly people from age 40 years and below. These people are especially from young working adults who have graduated and have been working for one to two years. Many of these admitted that they have very little understanding or knowledge of basic personal financial management. They all agreed that having an early financial education is necessary. They would be in a better position to manage their personal finances if they had some basic skills on how to manage their finances wisely, such as spending within their means and to be financially prepared for life’s uncertainties without encountering any negative impact on their lives in the future.

The benefits of early financial planning.

You many think that financial planning is troublesome and that you have to give up doing things that you enjoy. If you have your own financial plan in place, you will be able to budget your money in a way so as to avoid excessive spending, getting into debts, and unnecessarily borrowing of money from friends or banks. With good financial planning and control, you will be free from financial worries and easier to achieve your personal goals in life.  You can click here for more details and information on your finance and budget.



The importance of saving.

Life is full of uncertainties but with proper planning, you will have some money saved for emergencies such as the breakdown of your car, temporary injuries or sickness that can prevent you from working, and etc. In time to come, this saving will also contribute to your retirement fund.

Little by little, becomes a lot.

The importance of preparing a budget.

It is true that keeping to your budget is not easy and you will need discipline to do so. But it will help you to:

  • ·       Spend and live within your monthly income
  • ·       Grow your saving
  • ·       Prepare for unexpected financial emergencies
  • ·       Keeping you on the path to realizing your financial goal
  • ·       Develop good habits in your financial management.

A need is something that you cannot do without such as food. A want is something which is not necessary and you can do without. In our present time, a smart phone is a “need” for communicating with people, online banking, and etc. Wanting the latest phone model with the latest feature is not a “need” but a “want”. Do not buy on impulse. Always ask yourself, “Is it something that you really need or something that you can do without?” This will help you to spend wisely and to live within your means. Impulse buying will create financial problems for you.

The safest way is to keep your money in saving or fixed deposit account. The interest is lower and the return slower than other form of investments but it is not risky. You may be able to grow your money faster through other forms of investments, but there is a greater risk and chances that you might lose some of your money or all of it. Do not put all your money into one type of investment. It is important and smarter to spread your money across a variety of investments to minimise the chances of financial losses. Be careful of get-rich-quick schemes that promise high return in very short time. Always remember not to be greedy. Be careful to check with trusted friends, family members whether such schemes are genuine or not.

Do not be tempted to take a loan or use your credit card just because you can have access to ready money upfront without thinking about the repayment. Do not be tempted with the offer of minimum payment of a small percentage stated on your credit card monthly statement because doing so will result in a huge debt due to the compounding effect.

Big Brother's Dinner At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

SIBLING CAME VISITING....

My brother and his wife came up to Ipoh for a couple of days to attend a special function.  First thing first... they must go to all their favourite food in Ipoh, regardless of their busyness with their business.  LOL... Food is the first in line... 

For dinner, the three of us went for a nice dinner at Mun Choong Restaurant, one of the most popular restaurant that serves good quality food since the 1980s... Despite the pandemic and the lockdown, they are still going "strong" in their business.  Walk-in-s is kind of risky, it is better to call up and make reservation even during the day.  

Since there were only three of us, we did not order much... just these few dishes and a bowl of soup individually served.  I couldn't find the picture of the soup, I guess I must be too hungry then... 

Their Ginger Chicken is not to be missed.... 
Lots of ginger... yummy!
Claypot fish....
Their signature dish.... Big Headed Prawns...
And a small portion of fried rice.... 
Yes, enough for the three of us... 
As for the bill, I am not sure...
Big Brother's treat!

First time I Was Taxed...

THERE WERE ONLY A FEW OF US when our bags were scanned at the customs check point before exiting the airport.  I think I have the most luggage, I mean two big giant ones compared to the others who were only having one.  Obviously I was the "outstanding" passenger with two big luggage and after scanning through, I was asked to open the two bags for checking.  Now the scanning machine is very high tech, the custom officer told me that she saw  a Michael Kors handbag inside my suitcase!  Oh no, I told her that it was an old handbag which is really true, I bought it a few years ago and left it in US. Anyway, they were quite friendly, I mean the custom officers, they were just doing their job.  What I am fascinated is that even the brand could be seen through the scanning machine.  That is really high tech!

Alright, to cut the story short, I paid a tax of RM150 and was told that I can only purchase RM1000 only for one trip.  Anything above that, I would be taxed 10%.... another thing I only get to know through the Penang International Airport.  Alright, next time I will be more careful.... I mean I will keep the receipts and show proof of the purchase amount.

Before leaving for Ipoh, I satisfied my hunger *by the time I came out from the airport, it was almost 1pm* by having these two favourites.... 
Koay Teow Th'ng
Hokkien Prawn Noodles...
