5 Key Things to Consider Before You Move





The place you live is one of the most important aspects of life. Where you choose very much depends on what your priorities are, but pretty much everyone is looking for a good neighbourhood with great facilities nearby. However, looking from the outside, it can be difficult to make sure that where you are moving actually lives up to expectations.


Here are just a few of the top things to consider if you are planning on moving home anytime soon.


Cost of Living


As well as the actual cost of the property itself, you will also need to calculate roughly how much the cost of living will be. Ultimately, it’s worth doing your research so you are well prepared. It’s no good moving to a new place only to find out that you will be totally priced out from enjoying a decent standard of living while you are there.


Commute Distance






You may well have found what seems to be the perfect area to live, but if you end up spending hours of your day travelling to and from work, this may well significantly reduce your enjoyment of being there. Mainly because you won’t actually be there, but in your car instead! Think about how far away you are from your current home so you can work out the logistics of the actual moving process and then research moving companies in the local area. It’s also worth checking out what other type of transportation is available nearby. You may find out that public transportation will end up being the most efficient way to travel.


How Well Does the Area Match Your Lifestyle


It may well be that you love the hustle and bustle of a big city, preferring to be close to bars, restaurants and cafes. It may be that you love the great outdoors, so prefer to be in an area where there are more parks, cycle paths and open space. Ultimately, the type of lifestyle you live will be significantly affected by the area in which you call home.


The Type of People Who Live Nearby






If you have a young family, you will probably want to live in an area with other people who are in a similar situation. The same goes if you have kids who have already left the house, or are a young person looking to meet other young people. Though it’s nice to socialise with different types of people, it’s also good to know that there are other people in a similar situation to you who live nearby.


The Types of Jobs Nearby


You may already have a job before you move, but it’s nice to know that there are other options out there. There are some areas that are perfect for certain types of job, so it’s worth checking this out before you make the move.

Hopefully this list will have given you a bit of a better idea of the things that you need to consider before making your move. It’s worth taking the time to do your research so you are sure that this neighbourhood is the place 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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
