Easy Solutions To Real Home Problems

It can be devastating when something goes wrong in the home. Your home is your resting place, your comfort zone. When something untoward occurs, it can really shake things up. And if you are unsure about what to do with those problems, then it is even more worrying.   There are some common issues which all homeowners are likely to experience at some point in their lives. Knowing what they are, and how to deal with them, can make a huge difference in the long run. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some easy solutions to some of those serious problems which occur in the home.


Flickering Lights

We have all seen this happen from time to time in different buildings. Chances are, it has happened at least once in your home too. A light flickering once is not necessarily anything to worry about. But if the lights in your home start to flicker on a regular basis, then you might need to get them checked out. In the worst case scenario, this could actually be a symptom of something pretty serious. Flickering lights can be a sign of loose connections in the electrical panel. This, in turn, will probably be causing power to arc - or jump - over the gaps. And that is a serious matter indeed. Arcing can very easily lead to fires, and we want to avoid that at all costs. So what can you do about this problem? There is a chance that you could tighten the connection yourself, but you probably won’t want to risk it. For most people, it will be far preferable to call in a professional electrician. With electrics, safer is always better.


Water Damage
This next common issue is something that can be caused by a huge variety of different circumstances. More often than not, water damage is the result of a single, small leak somewhere in the network of pipes. Of course, at other times it can be due to a larger incident, such as something going wrong with the central plumbing. Whatever the cause, there is no doubt that water damage can cause a huge amount of hassle in the home. If it gets anywhere near the electricals, it could even be deadly. If you have had any water damage issues in your home, you should look for professional water damage restoration immediately. The quicker you get it sorted, the better.


Ice Dams

Ice dams are significantly less common compared to the previous two issues. However, when they occur they are still a huge nuisance. As such, it is useful to know what you can do about them if they do happen in your home. Ice dams usually occur after a period of heavy snowfall, and they can cause quite a lot of damage if left unchecked. If your home develops ice dams, you should take care not to try and get on the roof to fix it yourself. In the worst case scenario, you might even end up falling through and hurting yourself. Instead, get the professionals in to do it for you.

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…
