10 Items Every Living Room Must Have

Sofa 
A sofa is mandatory in every living room. Even if other types of chairs or seats are patronised more in a home, no living room can look complete without a sofa. For studio apartments, getting a sofa bed instead of a sofa can be very practical. Its ability to serve as a 2 in 1 option allows you to tackle your space constraint issues. Sofas are sometimes dreadful to purchase because they are known to be pretty expensive. Thankfully for online home furniture stores such as Masons Home Décor getting a good quality and nice looking sofa at a good price is not impossible. Do be sure to check if the store you are purchasing from provides delivery too!


Pillows
Pillows are definitely very comfortable, but their purpose to be put on a sofa is not exactly to add to comfort. Yes, many a times, we use pillows for added support to our backs. But most would have to agree, a sofa would look really naked without pillows!

Bean Bag 
Probably the invention that makes everyone reconsider getting a sofa in the first place! Bean bags  are economical in price and extremely comfortable. The high demand for bean bags have also resulted in it being readily available at all furniture shops in Singapore, Malaysia, and other parts of Asia. Being also available in many types of designs, they can provide a significant boost to the overall décor of your home. A bean bag usually becomes a very personal kind of furniture. Having a bean bag every member of the household is not uncommon!
  
Poufs
The material used to manufacture poufs range from knitted fabrics to acrylic. The material however, is always a secondary factor to a consumer’s decision making process. Even cheap poufs look great to be used simply using it as a home décor tool. On a more practical note, they can be sat on or used as a footstool.

Plants
Be it artificial or real, plants are known to be very adaptable regardless of the type of home décor theme you have in mine. They look fantastic within any setting! Choosing the best plant for your home is really all about personal preference. It is the one component in the living room that can be linked to the personality of the home owner! In recent months, the use of a terrarium has been gaining popularity among young couples. A terrarium displays variety, is easy to clean, and can be even be customised by terrarium makers in Singapore and Malaysia. The vase using to contain the plants can also be very instrumental to end look of your living room. Use a contrasting colour that works!

Rug
Most homeowners want to create a warm and cosy feel for their home. Most of the times, they are often left flustered due to a lack of doable ideas. A high pile rug could definitely do the trick. It is also nice for your toes to be able to snuggle within the warmth of a rug. Air-conditioning is used in most modern homes in Singapore and Malaysia. The result of cold floors are therefore very inevitable! It is important to note that the base of your furniture should protrude out of the rugs. They should either be fully on the rug, or fully out of the rug.

Coffee Table 
The perfect item to go on top of the rug. A coffee table is not only practical, but it also completes the overall look of the living room. The colour of the coffee table should match the tones of your TV console and sofa to create a very consistent and beautiful look. A coffee table is also perfect for providing an added storage solution to your home. Most coffee tables come with drawers and other sort of storage compartments. Do not forget to add some nice looking coasters on its surface!
  
TV
Investing in a TV for the living room can enforce some quality family time together. Even if television shows or movies are not your cup of tea, a TV will always come in handy in several moments of your life. Having an awkward social gathering? A TV can certainly be of great help! Furthermore, technological advancements have enabled even the smallest of homes to be able to house large television sets!

Ceiling Fan
On days or nights where the heat is not that torturous, it is good that we have the option of a fan. Using a fan brings about great ventilation within the home, and is also a very cost effective solution as compared to an air-conditioner. 

Photo Frames
What better way is there to let visitors have a better understanding on the members of this home? Having photo frames around the home reinforces the identity of the space. Being able to look at such amazing memories on a daily basis would most certainly make coming to a clean home a greater activity than it already is!

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…
