I love congee or porridge. One of my all-time favorites is chicken rice congee. This is one of the easiest chicken recipes, slow cooker recipes that you can cook in a crockpot. Crockpot chicken recipes are my favorite because they are so easy to make. It takes no time to prepare and no maintenance in front of a stove. All you need is chicken, rice, dried scallops ( optional) and water. Watch the video below for more details. Enjoy this crockpot chicken porridge soup on a cold day or any lazy day. You don’t have to slave all day to get a nutritious meal. What’s great about this slow cooker chicken recipe is you also get a nutritious bone soup all mixed in the batch.

February 9th, 2020 § 0 comments § permalink

In this 2020 Declutter Challenge, I want to organize my messy clutter to change my hoarding habits. I am sick of my messy clutter. I am starting a 2020 declutter challenge for myself and hope you will join me. I recently learned I have hoarding tendencies with frugal thrifty values. It will be a hard journey to discover what frugal definition and frugal meaning applies to me. I am far from letting go of all my things, this is only a scratch on the surface to let go of all the stress that is caused by clutter. I have more than plenty of what I need, in this challenge, I will join “Useless”, an influencer I’ve been watching on a “Low Buy No Buy ” challenge to avoid accumulating more things in the process. I hope you will join me on this detox journey.

I’ll post my progress here below.






How to fix a broken iPhone cable with style and durability

January 22nd, 2020 § 0 comments § permalink

This is a quick frugal fix for the iPhone charger cable. I don’t know why these cables always rips at the same spot. Apple should make their cables better for the price we pay for these charging cables. I see a lot of people’s fixes but they didn’t seem to help extend the life of the cable. So I came up with this super cheap solution that looks better, is sturdier and more functional. This fix didn’t cost me anything.

You’ll need some electric tape, an empty toilet roll, and some clear tape that’s it. Watch the video below to see how you can revive and extend the longevity of your cable charger.

YouTube channel motivation: How I survived 6 years as a small you tuber (30 Small YouTube Tips 2019)

#smallyoutubertag

This is a post to encourage the small YouTube community. I created a new YouTube channel in 2013 with zero knowledge on how to make a YouTube channel or how to start a YouTube channel.  My path in growing a YouTube channel has not been a smooth or sucessful journey.

My YouTube Channel

The vast competition from top YouTube channels and no knowledge of You Tube were super overwhelming to me. I only watched YouTube videos, I didn’t know how to make YouTube movies. What is a niche..itch? I barely learned how to use iMovie as my movie editor. My YouTube upload over the years were a combination of how to, diy, tutorial, and vlog videos. It was really nice to learned how to make money on YouTube. I got my first and only $100 paycheck from google a few years ago. In the latest YouTube Policy update I was quickly demonetized from the you tube partner program. It made me super irritated and upset.

YouTube channel motivation

I didn’t know how to grow YouTube channel. My YouTube subscriber count remains very low. My emotions have been a huge roller coaster as if I had a huge YouTube channel. Like most you tubers, I had great emotional attachments in creating a YouTube channel. Comparing top YouTube channels with small YouTube channel, small youtube channel didn’t equal less frustrations. I decided to collected and summarized of my 6 years experience into a video to encourage small you tubers. My slogan is “One step forward is one step closer to your goals.” I haven’t quit after 6 years. So, my fellow small you tubers, keep creating and you will move forward.

iPhone Battery Replacement Needed

I need an iPhone battery replacement for my old iPhone5, could I fix it / do it myself ? An iPhone repair is not something that I think I could do. However, I was super excited by the idea. I wanted to know how to take battery out of iPhone. Did iPhone5 battery replacement cost a lot? How complicated is it to do a  iPhone battery repair?  On the other hand I was also very intimidated by the idea, so my iPhone sat in a box collecting dust for over a year.

DIY iPhone Battery Repair Preparation

My mom was interested in playing with an iPhone but she didn’t want to invest so much money in a new iPhone. She does not intend to use most of the features. Remembering my iPhone stashed in the corner I decided to take a chance to see if I can fix it for her. I did some research and found a kit called IFIXIT iPhone5 Battery Replacement Kit . After watching more than 20 instructional videos I decided I could do it. To prevent myself from backing out I went and bought the kit at a local Fry’s Store. I went home and started the whole process with a live recording session. You can watch me stumbling through this challenge of my skills and nerves in the video below. I hope you will stick around to see if I succeed or fail miserably!!!


Conclusion

The kit only cost a little over $32 with taxes included, a much better option than spending a few hundred dollars for a new iPhone. My mom is very pleased and I am totally amazed that I fix it by myself. You do have to be prepared, be organized, be gentle, be careful and most importantly be patient in the whole process. It took me close to 2 hours from start to finish. I was taking my time so I wouldn’t make any stupid mistakes. It’s very rewarding to know I could do something that I thought was very complicated and impossible for me. This IFIXIT iPhone5 Battery Replacement Kit is excellent, I am super happy with it. I hope you will be inspired to try something challenging for personal your growth as well.
