Reasons for renting a studio

The key for any given place of residence is you need to find something to meet your expectations. For many people who work hard during the day, have stressful jobs, and then still want to go out and have a good time with respect to entertainment, there just isn’t enough time to take care of everything that comes along with owning a home. For those individuals who are simply looking for a place to live with no added stress, a studio is king. These are the reasons you should consider a studio instead of a home purchase for your next home.

Less Stress
When you live in a studio you get the home you want but none of the added stress that comes with being a property owner. You pay not only for the unit itself, but so you can literally avoid the rest of the hassle that a normal homeowner has to deal with. If you have noisy and unruly neighbors as a renter, then you can just tell your landlord and he or she will take care of it for you. What about the recent developments in local crime? As a tenant you don’t have to worry about property values changing because your rent is already set – it’s the landlord who worries about outside problems because he or she owns the unit. What about an increase in proposed property taxes? You aren’t the one who deals with it because you just pay your rent and the owner of the building deals with the rest.

The key to remember is when you are paying to lease a unit, part of your payment is supposed to cover everything that is included with managing the property both from a safety and security point of view but also from a financial point of view. While it might be a bit upsetting to need to pay rent each and every month, a big portion of your payment goes to making sure you don’t have to deal with anything else that comes along with the territory of owning or managing a property.

Flexibility to Move
One big thing about younger people is they aren’t sticking roots into the ground as much as previous generations have. This is a tremendous asset if you are any age and are thinking about the future, because in a global world where there are possibilities everywhere, why would you want to force yourself to live in a specific area if you think you could wind up moving away at some point? Even if you only want to head to another neighborhood in the same city, or if you want to relocate across the world into an entirely different country, if you are a renter then you can go just as soon as your lease term is up. The best part about having flexibility to move is if you are looking for studio for rent with PropertyGuru Malaysia, you can easily see where the best locations are, how much they are going for, and even be able to find out the contact information so you can learn the terms such as how long the leases will be. The major key to studios is the general flexibility that they provide, and if you do a little bit of planning up front then you won’t have to worry about being stuck in an area for long if you want to head elsewhere.

Unexpected Repairs
Unexpected repairs can come out of nowhere. In fact, if you have ever watch a television show where people do any sort of remodeling or renovations you already know how often hidden problems are tucked behind the walls and how often they are actually exposed. The best part about leasing is that if (when) those unexpected problems do rear their ugly heads, you are not on the hook to pay for them. In fact, not paying for those repairs is only the first part of the equation, as once the repairs and updates are made by your landlord, you are the one who gets to enjoy brand new features and appliances and it will be on the dime of your landlord.

Knowing you can truly live in a home that is up to date and up to code is a very nice and secure feeling. However, knowing you will have that same feeling without having to shell out the major dollars to pay for it is an almost unheard of possibility unless you are leasing a studio unit.

Middle of the Night Problems
Every home has problems and that’s just what happens to everyone. However, when you have to deal with a problem at two in the morning, it can be extremely frustrating. If there is a water leak from a busted pipe, you smell gas coming from behind an oven that isn’t on, or your power won’t work, who do you think is going to have to take care of the problem? When you own a home then it is all on you (or the cost will be on you when you call a professional at two in the morning). But, when you are renting the unit, a simple call to your landlord means everything will be taken care of. You will save on the maintenance, supplies, cost of the repairs themselves, and you won’t even have to pay for the possible damages that occur if water did leak into drywall for example.

It’s not just about the actual problems that can come up in the course of owning a home that can make it so hard, it’s the fact that you already have enough on your plate and don’t need any additional responsibility. When you have had hard days of work, have a personal life with personal stresses, and you still need to be back into the office the next day, do you really want to be dealing with emergencies in the middle of the night?

While some people will argue against it for financial reasons, the truth is if you are looking for a no stress, highly flexible lifestyle then you truly can’t go wrong with a studio unit. You pay so someone else takes care of the place and the problems. And, while you are paying money every month, you don’t have to bear any of the responsibility or stress and that’s something you can’t buy.

How many hats does a mum wear?



How many hats does a mum wear? Dutch Lady recognises the multiple roles Malaysian mums play and support her in her motherhood journey
 

As children grow, their needs change and mothers have to learn to adapt to various roles and improvise according to their little ones’ new milestones. A study revealed that the average mum is a master multi-tasker who carries out the roles of 23 different professions**, ranging from a cleaner, entertainer, chef, accountant and teacher to a chamber maid. She also needs to have the skills of a first-aider, chauffeur and hairdresser.

Understanding motherhood is a continuous learning journey, leading formulated milk powder for children brand, Dutch Lady Nutri Plan™ with 5X DHA* recognises Malaysian mothers’ need for support as she learns to adapt to new roles daily.

Let me share you some hats that a mum wear, an artist hat. 
 I'm a mum, I'm a chef too, cooking nutrition food for family.
 I'm a mum, I'm a coach too, be a good role model to our kids
 I'm a mum, I'm a friend too, let them know we are more than a mum.

“From our various consumer studies, society expects a mum to know everything about her child as soon as she becomes a mother. Well, she usually doesn’t. Dutch Lady understands the importance of nutrition and mum’s various roles to ensure the progressive development of a child.  Mum needs a motherhood partner to support her child’s changing nutritional needs and the various roles she play to raise a smart and healthy child,” said Ashlee Ng, Marketing Director of Dutch Lady Malaysia.

Ashlee shared her views at the Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak contest winners’ tea party, where winning mums met  Dutch Lady Nutri Plan™ brand ambassadors, Scha Alyahya and her daughter Lara Alana over high tea. These mums submitted outstanding pearls of wisdom they use to guide their little ones to emerge as winners.
 
The Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak campaign underlines how a mother’s role and her guiding styles evolve with her kids. A mother wears many hats to support her child’s nutritional and social needs. She is a chef when the child is hungry, a friend when he is sad, a nurse when he wounds himself falling down, and so on,” continued Ashlee.

“We see ourselves as the ideal partner for Malaysian mums. Like how they adapt to their children’s changing needs, Dutch Lady 4-Step Nutri Plan™ with 5X DHA* is formulated to continuously support a child’s changing nutritional needs, from one smart milestone to another,” she added.

As an expert in children’s nutrition, Dutch Lady formulated the 4-Step Nutri Plan™ to address Malaysian children’s nutritional gaps as highlighted in the South East Asian Nutrition Surveys (SEANUTS). The programme not only provides tailored nutrition but also packed with 5X DHA* to support a child’s progressive and brain development at every smart milestone.
 
Scha Alyahya and her daughter
For Scha Alyahya, Dutch Lady’s more than 50 years of expertise in building strong families and children drives her to choose the brand for Lara.

 “As a mother, nothing is more important to me than my child’s wellbeing. I am especially fussy about Lara’s nutritional intake, and I try to keep up with what key nutrients she needs. With Dutch Lady as my partner, I feel much more at ease. Dutch Lady not only provides the tailored nutrition Lara needs at every milestone, its 4-Step Nutri Plan™ for children from 1 to 6+ years old allows me more time and energy to focus on her other developmental needs, rather than worrying about her nutritional intake” said the actress and mum. 

Lara turned two recently, and has become a little explorer. Scha enjoys watching her child discovering and learning something new every day, but she also knows that her role is shifting.

“To evoke her curiosity, I used to point to things around Lara and highlight their names to her like a cikgu. But now, as she actively explores her surrounding, I have to start providing ideas on how Lara can learn even more about the world. That’s when I switch cap to be her buddy explorer!

We discover new plants and flowers in our yard, sometimes bugs too! Other times, I am her  coach, teaching her how to kick a ball or play a game,” said Scha, smiling.
 
winners of  Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak contest
During the tea party with the winners of  Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak contest, Scha and the mothers swapped parenting tips and funny stories when performing different roles while taking care of their children.

One of the winners, Norafida Baharuddin, is enthusiastic to try out some of Scha’s tips.

“I totally agree with her about the roles we need to learn to adapt to support our children’s changing needs. Sometimes, I too, find it hard to determine at what stage my child is in because every child grows differently and hit milestones at different pace! So I have to figure out what activities to do with him to stimulate his curiosity or interest to explore.


“That is why I’m also a fan of Dutch Lady Nutri Plan™. It helps me figure out my child’s developmental milestones, and it also provides the necessary nutrition to support his healthy growth,” said Norafida.

She also expressed her surprise and appreciation to Dutch Lady for being  selected as a contest winner to meet Scha and Lara over a fun tea party.

“My winning quote was what I always advise my kids -- to dream high that you touch the sky. It’s a form of encouragement to them to aim for the best in whatever they do and work hard to achieve what they have set for themselves. I am more than happy to do my best and play different roles to help my kids achieve their dreams and goals. So it helps that their nutritional needs are taken care of by my motherhood partner, Dutch Lady, and I can support them in other areas,” shared Norafida.

Amidst the chatter and laughter, the winner families also excitedly unboxed the instax camera they got as prizes to take snapshots of the joyful camaraderie. Many of them seized this opportunity to pose with celebrity Scha and Lara with their new cameras.
