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.

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 …
