Sleepless Night In IPOH

Busy and Tension again! I think I have mentioned many times in my previous posts on kitchen renovation. Well, it is time to do it after procrastinating for so long-a-time already.   I am always worried when it rains especially heavy ones. The water will come dripping down the side wall and each time it rains, I have to get ready the mops and lots of rags... very tiring, right?

Firstly, I went asking around for contractors... but managed to get one quotation only and I think his rates is quite reasonable... so I felt no need to ask around anymore... (like to get work done up fast!)  And renovation started yesterday.....
First day.....
Before the contractor left, he said "Better don't rain today"
And I got worried..... 
And true enough, it started pouring this evening...
I came home to find my kitchen nearly flooded...
The rain water came dripping down on all sides....
Never before I felt so frantic!
My kitchen drawers are all wet and some are spoilt..
I have to check out some websites and maybe I have to order new ones,  
something like these 36 inch Drawer Slides
Quickly lined up all the pails to "catch" water....
And called the contractor screaming....  "HELP! HELP!!"
He came almost immediately after my SOS call...
Kept assuring me that tomorrow will be alright...
All holes will be repaired... all sides will be patched up....
As for tonight...
It will be a Sleepless Night in Ipoh for me...

  8. Why didn't he cover it with a large tarp, and anchor it down with something heavy so the sides wouldn't blow up and off?

  18. Not to worry too much as the saying goes "water is 'choy' " so spent little on renovation but big ton$ coming soon.

    ReplyDelete
  19. From your photos, I cannot figure out what renovation you are doing. Even for the brick walls that have yet to be cemented, the contractor can covered up with those orange and blue plastic first to keep the rain water out.

  20. aiyoyo... hope its done soon!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
