How To Clean Your Beach Cruiser


Beach cruisers are delightfully low maintenance machines.  You can trust them to coast smoothly along the beach, no matter how long it has been since you last rode yours.  And thankfully they are beach bicycles that run on a simple, reliable design.


In Southern California, however, being low maintenance does not make you a star.  Southern California’s best beach bicycles make as much of a fashion statement as everyone and everything else in L.A.  In beachy shades of coral and teal, beach cruisers steal the spotlight from reality TV-worthy sports cars.  Since Southern California is all about being seen, here is how to keep your beach cruiser clean:

How to Give Your Beach Cruiser a Bath
The sand and salty air can leave your bike looking grimy, so you should wash it when you notice it looking less shiny.  Just wiping off the body of the bike with a wet washcloth is enough to restore its luster.  The mechanical parts of the bike, however, require a bit more work.  Cleaning the bike’s drivetrain requires degreaser and a soft-bristled brush.  Likewise, it takes work to clean the chain and front chain rings.  If you do not have a chain cleaning device, manually scrub the chain with degreaser and a towel or dishrag.

How to Clean the Tires
You can wash the tires of your beach cruiser with soap and water, just like car tires.  When you wash your bike tires, check them carefully for cracks and leaks.  Getting a flat tire on a bike is at least as dangerous as getting a flat tire on a car.  Take your beach cruiser to a bike repair shop if you notice anything abnormal about your tires.


It is easy to keep your bike clean using ordinary household items.  Just a few minutes, and your bike will be back on the beach, looking good.

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 …
