New Home, What Next


Congratulations on buying your first property; you’ll be excited and ready for your future ahead. It’s no secret that moving is right up there with potentially some of the most stressful life situations you’ll ever experience. However, (believe it or not) moving day doesn’t have to be a terrible time, and it is possible to feel confident and positive when it comes around. Firstly, look at it as an exciting fresh start, and keep remembering that you’ve worked hard for this apartment or house, and you should enjoy your achievement. Secondly, understand that with a little hard work, planning, and organization; the day will go as smoothly and seamlessly as possible, and you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.

So, it’s time to get your first home and moving day ready so that you can write a list of everything that can be done before the big day arrives. From things you can complete yourself, to jobs that you’ll need to call in the professionals for; there’s no time like the present to start preparing. You want to remember your move positively, and, you might even make some fun memories along the way. The following are some ideas, tips, and inspiration for those who are about to tackle their moving day with the power or preparation, for a stress-free and smooth experience ahead.

Protect Your Items

You’ll probably have collected an array of things that you want to keep in the future, and take to your new property. Therefore, you’ll also want to protect them, and insurance is your best option to do this (apart from being careful on moving day). Take a look at companies like One Sure Insurance who will be able to provide home insurance and cover the things that matter the most; both financially and sentimentally. You’ll have peace of mind that your precious cargo will be taken care of for the years ahead in your new abode.

Book The Right People For The Job

Unless you’re the proud owner of a removal van and a lot of heavy lifting doesn’t phase you; you’ll need to ensure that you’ve already searched for moving companies. Finding a reputable removal company will become more difficult the longer you leave it; great teams get booked-up fast, so don’t get left with people that won’t take care of your delicate smaller items and your favorite (and expensive) furniture. You’ll also need to ensure that you’re hooked up to everything you need when you’ve arrived in your new home. Therefore, try to arrange for someone to come and install your internet, gas, electricity, and ensure that your plumbing is running smoothly so that you can enjoy a hot shower after all that heavy lifting.

Never Stop Organizing

You’ll want to make sure that you can find things with ease when it comes to unpacking in your new home. Therefore, ensure that all your boxes are labeled with the room you want the removal team to put them in and the contents of the box. Wrap-up fragile items well, and again, label them clearly so that you don’t open a box full of smashed or broken objects.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
