Affordable Shoe Cleaning Service KL

No matter how well an outfit look, it is a pair of shoes that add the final touch to it. They are an important wardrobe staple that is needed to look our best. A pair of shoes is a great way to change up an otherwise boring look and add some pizzazz to your day. The shoes we wear can either break or make our outfit. When you have on a nice outfit but step out in a pair of scruffy and dirty shoes, it will ruin the entire ensemble.

Therefore it is important to keep the shoes clean to give off a good impression. We can clean off any dirt with piece of cloth and water but for more stubborn stains, you will need a professional shoe wash service.

While I was cleaning out my shoe closet a few weeks ago, I discovered that my favourite pair of canvas Tommy Hilfiger white platform sneakers have turned yellow! Due to the pandemic, I haven’t been wearing them out and also I have not been taking good care of my shoe. I was quite upset with it and tried to ‘whiten’ the shoes with the shoe white.  You know, the kind of shoe white we put on our school shoes to make it look white and clean? So after I have put the shoe white on my shoes, it couldn’t really whiten the yellow parts and needless to say, I think I spoiled it.

This is my white canvas shoe after I have put the shoe white. As you can see, it is still yellow.

Another close up. See how yellow it has become?

I have another pair of Timberland shoes that was also left sitting in the cupboard for a few years.  As such there were spots on the leather as you can see in the photo below.

I did not want to throw away my canvas shoe and was looking for ways to bring them back to life. Luckily I discovered Wash Lab, a professional shoe cleaning service in KL & Petaling Jaya that can give new life to my poor neglected shoes.  I am so happy that I can send them to Wash Lab for some cleaning and they look like new after being cleaned by this shoe wash service KL.  Check out the ‘After’ photos below.

Bff Trip To Pangkor Laut

Been real busy the past week as I was in Ipoh and Pangkor Laut for a holiday with my best friends.  All 8 of us spent a night in Ipoh and then 2 nights in Pangkor Laut for a getaway and to catch up.  The last time all of us, went on a holiday was in 2018 to Hoi An. Two of them couldn’t make it that time.

My friends and I have known each other since we were 7 years old. We weren’t best friends then but got closer when we enter secondary school. Then after we left school, we sort of drifted away as all of us were busy with our career and families.  We got back in touch when we were in our 30’s and tried to meet up whenever we can as we all stay in different cities and countries.

The getaway was a lot of fun and we got to hang out just like the old days.

We took a block of 4 Garden villas and mine was on the upper floor.

The weather was rather gloomy when we were there and it rained for an hour or so a day. It was great as the sun wasn’t scorching hot.  We took lots of photos and enjoyed this trip very much. We hope to have another getaway again next year.

If you are looking to give your give refresh your handbag collection and want to know what you should be looking for, here are the different types of handbags that you may want to incorporate into your wardrobe.

The shoulder bag is a classic and was highly popular in the 90s. They have made a comeback and are a must-have because they are stylish for work, dinner, parties and more. A shoulder bag is easy to carry on the shoulder or arm.

Crossbody Bag

This is another bag which has a fixed spot in a woman’s wardrobe. On days that you do not want to carry a lot of stuff and want to keep your hands free for more important details, you can opt for a crossbody bags. It is an ideal choice when you simply want to carry your cellphone, keys, lipstic and cash. The crossbody bucket bags are trending right now and this genuine leather mini crossbody bucket bag looks elevated and cool. The bucket silhouette lets you reach in and easily grab what you need.

This type of bag is probably owned by most women out there and is the most practical style in your arsenal. It is perfect to keep everything a woman needs. The open-top shape comes in handy in more ways than you think, from the office every now and then doubling as a smart carry-on.

Work Bag

The design, structure and practicality of a top-handle bag make it a classic choice as an everyday bag. Choose one in a neutral color and in a size that is big enough to hold your essentials as well as keeping your hands free by purchasing a style that comes with a removable shoulder strap.


The Everyday Bag

The most basic of your bag collection should be a bag in a simple style that is smart for work and also chic enough to match with your going out clothes.

How To Budget During Inflation

Besides being a health crises, the pandemic has evolved into a deep economic crisis too. Most countries’ economies are effected with negative impacts on incomes, livelihoods, jobs and more. Many people lost their jobs during the massive lockdowns and although the restrictions have been lifted, the current situation and the state of the global economy are not looking too good. Recession is looming and despite the global slow down, inflation is rising due to the increase in food and energy prices.

I can definitely feel the pinch as eating a simple meal in restaurant for a family of three can set us back like RM150 at least. Even a bowl of noodle plus a drink from the local coffeeshop cost about rm15 per head. Everything is so expensive now and we have decided to eat out less.  I would usually cook on weekdays and eat out or order food delivery on weekends but looks like this has to change. That said, grocery is not cheap either and I really should look at my financial plans and how to save more money.

Some of the strategies I plan to take are as follows:-

  1. Reduce energy consumption at home by switching off lights and fans when no one is around. Use energy savings light bulbs. Wash full loads whenever possible. Take shorter showers. Unplug appliances when not in use.  All these can help to cut down on the utility bills.
  2. Look for cheaper alternative when shopping for groceries. I should get into the habit of comparing prices and look for store brand items that are cheaper than others.
  3. As I am following the keto diet, I usually buy keto bread and keto cakes, and they cost 10 times more than the regular ones. Looks like I have to buy less now and try baking my own.
  4. Look for a part-time job to supplement my income. I am a blogger and hopefully, I can do some freelance writing for my online advertisers/clients.
  5. Moving my fixed deposits to banks that offer better interest rate. This online savings calculator – SavingsCalculator.org can help me calculate the compound interest I can earn and make better financial decision.

There seems to be no end to rising prices and inflation does make budgeting more challenging. Having a budget to follow and spending wisely will be able to help me save some money for rainy days.

My Retirement Savings

The inflation also impacts my retirement income and it is important for me to start saving for retirement and learn how to grow my retirement savings. Learning how to maximize the returns will help me live a carefree and comfortable life.

Parents who are saving for their kids’ education may also want to factor in the inflation and the rising cost of education. The education savings calculator can help to calculate the inflated cost to invest the right amount to reach the goal comfortably.

Doenjang Jiggae My Comfort Food

I love having a bowl of piping hot soup for dinner as it is just so satisfying.  I don’t need anything else as a bowl of soup is packed with nutrients and very savory too. One of my favourites is Doenjang Jiggae, a popular Korean stew that is flavored with fermented soybean paste. It is something like Miso soup but is more intense, rich and flavorful, not to mention more ingredients.

I added a lot of cabbage into my doenjang jiggae, together with tofu, enoki, daikon, carrots and slices of pork. It is so delicious and is the ultimate comfort food. So cozy and comforting.

Here is a recipe I found online on how to make a delicious Doenjang Jiggae. 

  1. Saute garlic in oil until fragrant then add onions and everything you want into the pot of water. 
  2. Boil for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the Doenjang paste, tofu, and vegetables.
  4. Stir to completely dissolve the doenjang and cook until the meat and potatoes are cooked thoroughly

Easy right? You can also replace the sliced meat with seafood or pork shoulder or pork ribs. 

Here is my pot of hearty soup.  It is definitely good for the soul.

Curtain Cleaning Tips to Make Your Drapes Look Clean & New

Here are some curtain cleaning tips to make your drapes look clean and new. Not only that, cleaning the curtain and drapes removes debris and allergens that might trigger allergies especially if someone has a sensitive nose or skin condition.

We strongly advise doing regular cleaning on your home, shop or office curtain and drapes. There are two main options available, which is dusting, to beat out the dust out of the curtain, and vacuuming, which sucks off the dust that is on the curtain. The latter is a more effective and efficient method.

If you insist on washing your curtain at home, please make sure to read the curtain label that will list down the cleaning instructions of that particular curtain. This is because some curtain materials cannot be washed by strong chemical shampoo. Hence, select a gentler cleaning product during the curtain washing process. Additionally, please do not put drapes and curtains in the washing machine without reading the cleaning instructions.

When you accidentally get a stain on your curtain and drapes, do remove it immediately before it becomes permanent. Spot cleaning clean stains because it may not practical to wash the whole curtain just to remove a small stain. One method of spot cleaning is using liquid detergent and mixing it up with water in order to clean the stains. If it does not work, you can consult a curtain cleaning professional.

A Fun Night At Euro Fun Park

Euro Park Fun Park came to this side of the city about two weeks ago and as usual, Ashley saw it on social media and wanted to visit the amusement park. She just loves all the heart-popping adrenaline activities.  So she made plans with her friends and went to the amusement fun fair on Friday night. When I saw the game stores, I told hubs that we should go too as I used to frequent fun fairs when I was a kid and these game stalls bring back memories of my childhood. We didn’t go on any rides that night because I am a wuss.

Euro Fun Park was established in the 90’s and is one of the pioneers in the travelling fair industry. There were quite a number of thrilling rides such as the Challenger, Vortex, Sky Rider, Haunted Castle, Roller Coasters, Dodgem Car and more. I told Ashley not to go on the Sky Rider that spins the riders through the air and also the Vortex that takes the riders cartwheeling through the air, spinning around and around in a dizzying adventure. Luckily she’s a good girl and listens to her mama.

We arrived at 6.30pm and the ticket booths only open at 7pm.  There were long queues at the booths and since there were 4 ticket booths, the wait wasn’t that long. The entrance ticket is RM6 per head. That night, there were many students from international schools visiting the fair. It got crowded after 8.30pm. The rides are rather expensive and can cost up to RM24 per head per ride. Ashley had an incredibly fun night with her friends and we left at around 9.30pm.  Below are some of the photos taken at the Euro Fun Park.

The Challenger which was the first ride Ashley and her friends went for.

I realized that I did not take any photos of the thrilling rides but only videos that are difficult to post on my website.  Ashley said the next amusement park that she plans to visit is the new theme park in Genting.

My Silly Furbaby

I looked out from the door a few days ago and saw this.  Actually this is the first time I have seen Sheldon sleeping sunbathing on the porch. Usually he would be lying under the shed. I thought the long fur would make him feel hot.

Our first baby, Buffy a rottweiler loves to sunbathe but not huskies. I have never seen Cooper doing this either. I wasn’t sure what was going on with this guy that day. He is full of surprises.
