Essential Gardening Tools You Need To Own

We all want to help our gardens look their very best all year round. To do this, we need the right equipment to help us. But if you’re new to the world of gardening, knowing which tools to buy can be overwhelming. While you could buy every item available in your local gardening store, this can be a huge waste of money. You may buy items that you don’t require or ones that you don’t know how to use correctly. So rather than buying everything, why not buy top quality essentials instead. Here are three gardening tools that every gardener should have to use in their outdoor space.
Lawn Mower
Whether your lawn is small or covers acres, a lawn mower is a crucial gardening tool all homeowners need. Having a well-manicured lawn can make your garden look more spacious and appealing to spend time in. It also shows that you take pride in your garden and keep it week maintained. You can find a lawn mower for sale online, in newspapers and garden centres. But just remember that the types of lawn mower vary significantly from manual to ride on. Think about the size of your lawn and seek advice from the experts at your garden centre. You should also consider the additional cost of tuning and maintaining your lawn mower as some will require more than others.
Garden Spade
Gardens spades are another tool that all gardeners need to own due to their multiple uses. They can be used to dig holes and loosen the soil to plant flowers and trees in your garden. Another use is to remove weeds and dead plants from your flower beds. Spades are also useful for removing snow from your driveways and paths during the winter. You can find them at most garden centres in an array of different sizes. Test out a few options before you buy to make sure the height is perfect for you to use. If it’s too short, it may cause you back pain as you garden. The handle should also be comfortable to use and ideally have a hand grip included.
Hose
To keep your garden looking as fresh and beautiful as possible, a garden hose is crucial. This tool makes it easier to keep your garden hydrated and also encourages your plant life to flourish. Hose pipes are also ideal for watering hanging baskets which may be difficult to reach with ease. You can find hose pipes for sale online and again in garden centres. Before buying, consider what the most appropriate length would be to reach your entire garden. If buying a second-hand hose, always check for holes and test before you buy. You might also want to see if there are any attachments which can be added to the hose to enhance its capabilities further.

When buying these items, always buy the best quality you can comfortably afford. These items will last longer, break less and help you garden better. Once you’ve mastered using these tools, you can then slowly start adding to your collection one piece at a time.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
