Eat Well, Digest Well with Gaviscon this Chinese New Year

It’s a widely-known fact that Malaysians love food – so much so that the greeting “Have you eaten?” is more popular than “How are you?” That’s why the choices of cuisine are abundant and easily available at any time of the day in our country.

Food brings us together with our friends and family, especially during festive seasons like Chinese New Year. It provides not just mouth-watering aromas and tastes; but also a common conversation topic that’s guaranteed to break the ice. For Malaysians, food is translated into identity of families and communities around the country. Indeed, food is a part of us and who we are.

Every Chinese New Year, we celebrate the occasion with festive delicacies that only make an appearance once a year. Among the various dialect groups, there are significant dishes that symbolise the festivities. Each culinary creation has its own unique twist, either passed down from previous generations or reinvented with a modern touch. There’s just no denying the allure of a wonderful home cooked dish, or even a hometown specialty.

How to Lower Your Renovation Costs

Remodeling your home doesn't have to cost thousands of dollars. If you're interested in upgrading your kitchen or re-doing that carpet in the basement, here are just five ways to lower your renovation costs without lowering the contents of your wallet as well.

1. Hire Local Contractors

Unless you have a specialty feature that can only be installed by experts of a certain distinction or class, it's okay to hire local contractors to get the job done. Not only will they face less travel to reach your home, but they'll also know all about things like weather and neighborhood conditions without being told.

2. Plan Ahead

Preparation is extremely important during renovation projects. If you don't draw up budgets, schedules and contracts, you're much more likely to face unpleasant and unexpected surprises down the line. If you're serious about saving money during your remodel, get details here for planning ahead and obtaining quotes before you start tearing up your tile.

3. Check Inside Your Walls

If insects or rodents are found inside your walls during your renovation, your contractors will be legally obligated to stop working until an exterminator can come in and solve the problem. The same goes for asbestos and other potentially hazardous compounds. If you don't want to halt your progress halfway through the project, have your walls evaluated beforehand.

4. Cut Corners for the Small Stuff

There's nothing wrong with applying a stainless steel finish instead of actually building a new-brand sink in stainless steel. Who will know but you and your contractor? While you shouldn't cut corners when it comes to the big stuff, there's no harm in reducing your expenses for the small, everyday things.

5. Say No to Upgrades

Contractors live for upgrades. They require more planning, more materials and more labor, so that means more money in their pockets when the job is done. Resist the urge to listen to their suggestions! If you haven't planned for it and don't need it, don't pay for it. Stick to your budget. In the long run, you'll be glad you did.

These are just a few helpful tips for saving money while you renovate. As you can see, a lot of them involve out-of-the-box thinking, so don't be afraid to experiment during your remodeling projects. If something doesn't work out, you can always re-do it again!
