FRENCH HOTEL IN IPOH

We managed to go for another quick break in Ipoh. I've browsed through the net to get some feedback on which hotel is highly recommended and of course within my tiny budget range. There are few to select from but French Hotel is the talk of the budget hotel customer.

We had a few hiccups during check in but apart from that it has been a very good experience. Spacious, Location and excellent bathroom.

CARPET GRASS PROJECT



I've tried this before .... (GAGAL big time)




THIS IS MY CURRENT PROJECT ...






I've tried the above hoping to have a very grassy green lawn but living in kampung this objective is not really easy to achieved. The carpet grass is really tender and need intensive care , and having to fought with other grass like kampung grass and the ever popular lalang my project failed ..few time that is.

Long term probably going for artificial grass but at the moment instead of planting it on the ground , i''m using it as part of my garden deco ...yup planting the grass in the pot or container ..so far it works

KLIPPAN: FROM IKEA TO JALAN REBUNG (part 4)







Now, the installation ..it's a different story all together. I've studied some of the steps shown in Youtube and some of the video looks very doable. But being a not really DIY kind of person I decide to be very safe and pay for the installation.

It's not as easy as I thought and to do it 2 times (since we bought 2 sets) is unimaginable. Anyway the installer really did good and i takes about 45 minutes to complete the KLIPPANS.

Once the deal has been finalized in terms of charges fro transportation and installation the next step is to wait ....The yellow truck arrive at jalan rebung one day after the purchase and I've always wanted to have that truck delivering goods to our house.

The only thing is that the yellow truck that was assigned to our house is without the IKEA logo ..it's not a big deal although it's nice to have kan ...

KLIPPAN: FROM IKEA TO JALAN REBUNG (part 2)



Once the budget is available the 2 of us (me  and my lady) went to IKEA and after deciding on the color we bought 2 set ol KLIPPAN (we decided to go for corporate grey). Since this is the first time for us buying an actual sofa from IKEA the next experience is really memorable.

Now we know that you've to bring the whole sofa (which is still i boxes) to the paying counter. Since on that moment we're the only customer buying big pieces it's king of funny seeing us being really different from others going through the cashier.
