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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
