Home Improvement Drills

I really don't like renovations to be done in the house especially when we are still staying in it.  But  no choice, I had to be around when they came and did it yesterday.   Yes, it was long overdue already, finally I decided to get it done over with, now my whose house is like "railway track"... wiring here and there... every corner... it is not a nice sight...

When they start drilling, I shuddered... wouldn't want to imagine the mess that the drilling caused...  but no choice, when they finished one part, I cleaned up... that made it easier in the end....

Actually I didn't want to do that, the worker suggested it... he said, "Give me the broom, let me sweep for you so that the dust won't be everywhere......."  Once he said that, I quickly took the broom and cleaned up...

Drilling time.... 
Messy time....
Dusty everywhere...
SOS!!!
HELP!!
As they worked, I cleaned as much as I could... 
Finally when they were done, I mopped the floor three times..
But I still could feel the dust under my feet....
Am I eccentric?
I guess I am.... 
I had a Good sleep last night... too exhausted already!

  2. Oh, a big headache, the knocking & drilling, just like last year when I renovate (extend) my kitchen. Worst part, everyday has to sweep the dust, mop the floor and next day repeat the same thing. Mine took one month plus to finish. Can you imagine?

  7. I am also very scared of having to fix things once moved in. I read somewhere that to keep vacuuming as the person drills so that the dust will not fly everywhere. Aircon for the bedroom?

  12. aiyoh, i am just wondering will the workers curse you in heart, because you were cleaning while they were working.. it make me feel like this case: you go into a shop, you are browsing the clothes and the sales girl is following behind you, whatever you touched, she will want to rearrange them even she doesn't need to.. haha!! but probably i just think too much, the worker was indeed very considerate to ask for a broom from you :)

  16. I hate those renovation and dust. Usually those workers will use vacuum cleaner to vacuum the dust while they drill to minimise the dust flying around.

    And I understand the mopping process. I remember I mopped 3 times too when moved into my new home and yet still can feel the dust around. I also had a good night sleep that night. Lol.

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?

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

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....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
