Updating Your Garden: Where People Go Wrong


It’s common to want to enhance your garden at this time of the year. After all, summer is almost here, so it’s the perfect time to give it a boost. At the end of the day, you are going to spend a lot of time outside in the sunshine in the months to come! However, you might be surprised how many people make mistakes when it comes to sorting out their garden. And then they have to live with this regret over the coming months. Therefore, here is where people go wrong when updating their garden so you can avoid these mistakes at all costs.

Not researching about different plants first

It’s easy to go a bit plant crazy when you head to the nursery. After all, you might spot beautiful plants you think would look great in your garden. But while spontaneity is good, you do need to do some research before investing in any old plant for your garden. After all, you don’t want to end up with something which requires a ton of maintenance over the following months. Or something which could be harmful to kids or pets! After all, you don’t want to feel guilty if they get sick. Therefore, you need to ask for more information about the specific plant before you go to the till. And you should be able to find some more information online to ensure you make the right decision on plants for your yard. That way, you won’t be left living with regret.


Not hiring a professional landscaper

When you want to update your garden, it’s easy to go down the route of doing it yourself. After all, you might not want to splash out the cash on a professional. But if you are doing big updates, it can sometimes be worth it. After all, if you lay the paving down yourself, it might end up going wrong. And you could end up with an uneven patio. Also, you might end up making the garden look overcrowded. After all, you might not have the best skills to landscape it properly. Therefore, you should hire a professional landscaper who can ensure the garden looks fantastic. And before signing on the dotted line, make sure you read online about the top 10 qualities to seek in a landscaping company. That way, you know you are picking the right one for the job.


Not making it family friendly

It’s also important to make sure the garden is perfect for your family. After all, a lot of people make the mistake of thinking more about how it looks rather than the safety aspect. But then if something happens to their kid, they are left living with regret. Therefore, you need to make sure that the features in the garden are family friendly. For example, if you put a pond in the yard, ensure there is a fence around it to keep your little ones safe. And you need to ensure there is a good fence in the garden to ensure privacy for the sake of your family.


And remember to think about features which will be good for winter too. After all, you want a garden which you can use all year round.

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 …
