Don't Forget To Do These Crucial Things Before Moving Day!

There are a couple of extremely important things you should never forget to do before your big move. As there’s so much to remember, ensuring you’ve done these things can be easier said than done. If you’re moving soon, read on and make sure you’ve got everything done before the big day!

Label As You Pack
Labelling things as you pack up your items will take a little longer, but help you to no end in the long run. You’ll be able to unpack much faster when you arrive at your new home. Not only that, you’ll know exactly where something is if you need to grab it fast. Make sure you list everything in the box clearly. You can also write down the room it’s supposed to go in.

Find Lost Keys
You might have keys lying around and have no idea what they are for. Handing every key over to the estate agents or new owners is crucial. You don’t want to leave them with an incomplete home! Check that you have the keys for all doors, windows, bolts, sheds, and anything else that has a lock. You’ve probably heard stories about homeowners who arrived only to be unable to get into their new home because they weren’t given a certain key.

Hire Movers
Hiring movers months in advance is crucial. You’ll make sure you get the day you need this way, as well as the services of a trustworthy moving company. Shiply Removals are a good example of what you should be looking for in a moving company.

Host A Moving Party
Host a moving party so that you can say goodbye properly. You may not need to do this if you’re only moving down the road. However, it could still be a good idea to do this as a way to say goodbye to your old house. If you don’t want to host a moving party, you could always host a moving in party. You can make memories in your new home right away by doing this!

Switch Utility Services
Make sure you call utility companies in advance too. This is especially important if you’ve bought a property that was previously empty, as things may need to be connected so you can enjoy them the second you get there.

Explore Your New Area
Go exploring in your new area and find fun things to do. Have a look around the shops, go for a walk, and make sure you get acquainted with it properly. This will make it feel so much more like home. As you do this, you could also consider introducing yourself to your new neighbours. They might even offer to help you unpack on the day!


When you do these things before moving day, you’ll have better time in your new home. You’ll be able to unpack swiftly, and make yourself at home right away. Let me know if there are any tips you swear by when you move. Thanks for reading!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
