5 Ways To A Homely Home

As a homeowner, creating a more loving environment for your family to grow is always high on your agenda. In truth, the home improvement challenge is a battle that is never fully completed. After all, every property will need modernisation from time to time.  However, it’s not all about building a home that looks nice and pretty. You should also take your responsibilities into account. That means making the most of your resources. If you can achieve this with decisions that will benefit other people, then that’s a bonus too.  Let's start with some ways to make our homes a more comfortable place to live in.  Here are 5 ways to declutter our homes for better living for ourselves and our love ones.

Firstly, start by creating a list of places and areas in your home, beginning with the easiest part of the house.  Do one part at a time and it would be a great beginning to clean up the master bedroom, followed by the other rooms.  Always start on one section, for example if the house has two storeys, then do one at a time.  Best is to begin at the top level and going down consecutively and accordingly.   

Secondly, start filling up a big trash bag.  Those unused clothing and other stuff that are redundant but taking up a lot of space in the house, it is time to clear and fill up the big trash bag.  But do not throw away the stuff that are still usable, they can be given away for Goodwill. 

Thirdly, we can organize the cleaning up by using some huge boxes.  This is the most common technique used in our home.  Use a marker pen to name the boxes, one to give away and naming the items as we start to relocate the stuff from one area to another.  This way we can remember where we have chuck our items instead of ravaging them all over again after everything is kept and done.  If our homes do not have sufficient storage for all the boxes, we can consider storing them at this warehouse temporarily till we find our new place.

Fourth point, after all being said and done, we can start upcycling, it is now a growing trend.  We can utilize old items which no longer serve their initial purpose.  That will go into a box stating "Tender Loving Care."  Not all items can be saved to improve our lives but that does not mean they can't help someone else.  One man's junk can be another's treasure.  

Fifth point, remove harmful elements from our homes.  Green living is something that we should all aim for, however cutting waste is not the only option.  You can have an equally huge impact by making smarter choices.  Meanwhile treating early signs of damp and other harmful elements can protect the building and your family too.  This means that you will be preserving resources and your finances as well.  It might sound like a small change, but the impact is massive.  

After all these being said and done, we can look forward to our new home or environment.  As the saying goes, Home is Where the Heart is!  Happy Living!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

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....

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?

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...
