Have you already done your spring cleaning? If you have, you’ll be all ready to get your house ready for summer. Not only is spring a fantastic time to deep clean your house, but it’s also the perfect season for home maintenance. There is probably a lot to do in your home before summer arrives. Not sure what you should be doing? Don’t worry; this guide will help you! Here are five tips for getting your home ready for summer.





Replace Any Old Windows
Replacing windows is one of those jobs that we tend to sit on for a long time and never get round to. Now that the weather is getting better, it’s perfect for hiring someone in to help you get rid of old windows and install new ones. You don’t need to replace every single window in your home all at once. It is often better to do them in stages. You could do one side of the house every spring until they are all done. If you are planning on getting new windows, flick through a brochure before you pick a style. There are different ones to pick from, including casement windows and sash windows.


Bring Summer Inside
Possibly the easiest way to get your home ready for summer – bring pot plants and flowers into your home! Take a trip to your local gardening centre and buy a lot of seeds and bulbs that are suitable to be grown indoors. Once you bring all these houseplants into your rooms, your home will be filled with bright colours and a fresh fragrance!


Clean and Replace Filters
Your heating system will have vents and filters in it. These will need cleaning regularly. Once they have been used for a few years, you will need to replace them. If you don’t feel quite so confident doing this yourself, hire out a professional handyman. There are also filters in your washing machine and tumble dryer that will need cleaning. These are very easy to do, any you will be able to sort them out yourself.


Clean Down Your Barbecue
Summer is on its way, and that means barbecue season is almost upon us! Don’t be caught out by forgetting to clean your barbecue! Even if you cleaned it at the end of last summer, it is always best to give it another quick wipe down. Especially if it has been in storage, as it could have gathered a lot of dust.


Clean Out Your Gutters
Spring is the time when you need to get your ladder out and see to your gutters. A lot of debris and dead leaves can build up over winter. This can lead to them getting blocked. Simply climb the ladder with a bucket and take out all the rubbish that you find in them.


To truly enjoy your home through the summer, you need to get it in shape now! Then you can sit back and relax during the hot and sunny summer days!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
