All around the world the idea of home is a powerful force of thought. Have you ever heard the saying about home being where the heart is? Well, our heart is in having a nice home, and what is nice varies from person to person and culture to culture. My grandparents had what some people today would call a shack. My parents were in a rundown apartment when they had me. They worked hard to make sure I had a good education, and now my wife and I are looking at Thenewfuturacondo.com.sg website to get condos for us, my parents and my grandparents.
We are getting a three-bedroom condo at The New Futura as we have a new generation on the way. The place is selling out fast. That is how it is here in Singapore; you need to get in on housing opportunities fast. People buy condos as investments. We did not want to rent through a third-party. We wanted to own our condo. Instead of paying rent, we wanted to invest in our own future. Continue reading Moving into Our New Condo in Singapore
This was something that I was really working towards, but I was not sure it was going to happen to be honest. I was expecting another guy to get the promotion, but that guy almost literally self destructed. It is never a wise career move to get involved in an extramarital affair with your boss’ wife. He thinks that I was involved in disclosing it, but I really had no idea. Right now I am cleaning out my apartment and trying to figure out if a post tenancy cleaning in Singapore makes sense. I figure that I would like to avoid paying them to clean up the place, but that it is pretty likely that the landlord is not going to want to give back my security deposit if they can get out of it.

Both of our children were exceptional learners, but they had different styles of learning where they excelled. Our daughter was a visual learner. She excelled when she read how to do something in a textbook. Our son learned best by tactile, or hands-on, kind of learning. When both of them were having a little bit of trouble in physics class, we got them specialized physics tuition to help them both learn what they needed to improve their grades to As.
The tutor helped our daughter using her learning style, and he helped our son by using real-world physics examples that he could grasp better. It is all about reaching the kids where they are at when it comes to improving their grades. Learning styles include aural and tactile learning. Aural learners do great with lectures as they learn by listening. Tactile learners like to use their hands to do the things they are learning. Experiments and real-world examples help them. Most learning in textbooks is visually based. You see and learn. Continue reading Visual, Aural and Tactile Learning Styles
I love my home. My wife Yenny and I take great pride in it. We make sure the lawn is neat and trim. I make sure that my house has the best appearance it can have. It is the apex of my neighborhood. I always felt that I was safe in my home. It seems I was wrong. While Yenny and I were away, my neighbors home was robbed in broad daylight. They practically cleaned out my neighbor’s house. My neighbor is an elderly man. My wife Yenny was scared. I looked for Bakersfield security companies for help with our home.
My neighbor’s plight was a big wake-up call for me. I immediately thought about what would happen if I was in his shoes. I would be devastated if my home was robbed by thugs. I would also be worried if the robbers had been armed and my wife was home alone during the robbery. Continue reading Protection for My Lovely Residence
The news of an extended new multinational hospital in the city with new technologies is as discouraging as it is encouraging. Modern techniques from the west catch big viruses of cancers, fevers, orthopedic complexities and others with the help of improved machines. However, the cures are equally expensive and complex for many groups of people in the community. Mostly community of higher age groups is missing their old healthy days of quick cures and happiness. Traditional Chinese medicine for Singapore is successful in bringing those smiles on people’s face with their cures.
Orthopaedic treatment in traditional Chinese methods includes massages called as ‘Tui Na’. Qualified Chinese physicians follow traditional methods to cure patients. Continue reading Traditional Cures for Ailments, Micro to Macros
I wanted to take a user experience design course because to me it’s the most important thing in technology today. In fact, it’s probably always been the most important thing. It’s absolutely incredible to me how many horrible user interfaces I’ve run across in my nearly twenty years in the tech field. It’s like people don’t even think about how potential customers and users will interact with their app or software or website. I’ve seen so many businesses fail because they covered all of the bases, but didn’t pay any attention to the user experience. It’s just incredible, really.
I’ve worked in various tech fields for some time, but never spent much time dealing with the user experience. I left that to others, and in my businesses we usually had some good people doing great work in that area. I recently agreed to help a start up get off the ground, however, and they need a lot of help. In order to better understand how the user will experience their product, I decided to take a course so I can make sure this doesn’t crash and burn at the new company. I’ll use my knowledge from the course to make sure they’re doing a good job.
I found a school that offers various courses in this particular area, and signing up for a course was really easy. It wasn’t like a traditional university where you have to go through a lot of hoops to be able to take a class. I remember going through university years ago and it was just form after form after form. Here it didn’t take long at all. I’ve got a lot of experience in the area so that probably helped. I’m looking forward to getting through the course and applying my knowledge at the start up.
Who knew something like CLA Safflower oil would work on someone with a broken metabolism? I sure didn’t. My metabolism went down the drain back in the early 1990s after a bout of bad behavior on my part. I spent a bit more time than I should have drinking and eating poorly and the next thing you know I started getting a gut. Getting a gut when you’re in your twenties isn’t a good sign. It means your metabolism has slowed down to the point where you’re not burning the necessary amount of fat. This was a shock considering I’m a skinny guy.
The gut persisted, in various sizes, for the next twenty years. Sometimes I’d get into the carbs a bit too much and it would expand. Other times I would work a job where I spent ten or more hours a day on my feet and the fat would almost entirely melt off. Regardless, some of it always stayed in place. As anyone knows, having a pronounced gut isn’t good for your health. Continue reading It Sure Works on a Broken Metabolism
We went to visit my cousins in California. Being the guy who refuses to displace children or adults from their bedrooms, I decided to be firm that it would be my wife and I who slept on the pullout sofa mattress. My wife could sleep on a rough concrete slab during a snowstorm and be comfortable. I am much more delicate than that. My back hurt so much the next morning I was looking online for a chiropractor in Santa Barbara that I could visit without anyone knowing about it.
I found an office that I could go to, and I got approval from my insurance to visit the office as an out-of-network practice. The copay was a lot higher, but the relief was amazing. I was able to sleep on the pullout sofa mattress for a week without being disabled for the daily activities we were all getting into. The chiropractor had me come in for a couple of more adjustments to get me through the week. My wife had a suspicion my back was hurting, and then she noticed the copay amounts being put on our debit card. Continue reading Visiting Relatives and Sleeping on a Pullout Sofa
I remember stepping back on the ladder and there was no floor underneath my foot. I was focusing on the work I had just done up at the ceiling, and thought I was on the last rung of the ladder. Well, I was one up from the bottom. It is an eerie feeling to fall in slow motion. The tile floor was hard, and my back and arm hurt. I did not break anything, but I twisted myself up bad enough to cause me to make an urgent appointment with the Sacramento chiropractors that I have gone to in the past.
I must have really wrenched myself around trying to right myself in order not to hit the floor. It did not work. Continue reading Getting My Back Normal After a Ladder Mishap
Sitting in the office of a chiropractor in Redding was not how I wanted to spend my Saturday, but that’s the way life is sometimes. I had a date that day, and everything was going well, until I pulled my back at the rock climbing wall. My date was someone that I would call adventerous, and she loves to go rock climbing for some reason. After I hurt my back, I wanted to cut our date short so I could go to the chiropractor, but she was willing to go with me and continue the date, which was nice of her.
Since I couldn’t really do much else given the state of my back, my date and I decided to go back to my place and watch a movie on the couch. A new movie had just debuted on an online streaming service and I was dying to see it. I popped some popcorn in my air popper, which was fascinating to my date. She had never seen anyone who used an air popper. I guess she was used to only the microwaved stuff and the kind that they serve at the movie theater. As we were watching the movie, I forgot all about my back.
By the time the movie was over, my date and I were tired and nearly about to fall asleep. There was another movie that my date wanted to watch, so I started playing it. As time passed, we weren’t watching the movie anymore and were just making out. Even though my date and I were embraced, I didn’t feel any pain in my back. I’m not sure if it was because of my pain medication, or if it was because of what was happening, but I was enjoying every minute of it regardless of the reason.
I am so glad that my dad was insistent upon me being ready for the world. He taught me how to change a tire on my car, how to protect myself if someone tried to take my purse or a bag off my arm, and how to fix basic computer issues. He also taught me that I needed to check my air conditioner as well as my furnace well before I needed to use either one. He also made sure that I had the number for a reputable HVAC company in NYC as well as a plumber, electrician and car mechanic should something happen that I could not fix on my own.
I knew to change the furnace filters on a regular basis, and I did that. I also knew to check it at least one month before I was going to regularly use it, just to make sure that everything was fine with it. The last two years, I did just that and I had no problems at all. Continue reading I’m Glad Dad Told Me to Make Sure the Furnace Works Before It Gets Too Cold out
I just became a sophomore at NC State in Raleigh and that means that I do not have to live in the dorms any longer. So I have started to look for an apartment that I can afford and which is on the Wolf Line, which is the University’s bus line. Of course I have sold my beat up old car since it is of very little use to me except when I go home for the holidays. I can take the bus or the train back to High Point and it is not that big of a deal however. In fact you hardly ever find a place to park your car anywhere close to where you want to be on campus and either way it usually takes a good long time to find a spot to park the vehicle. It is a lot easier and a lot quicker to get on the bus. You can track it on the internet and then just walk down to the corner right as it arrives. Continue reading Getting Ready to Move out of the Dormitory
I needed a job, but not for the money. I was just bored, and I did not want to sit in my living room watching TV every single day. My kids were nearly all grown. The two youngest were still at home, but their social and school calendars were filled to the brim. I wasn’t even needed as a chauffeur anymore. My good friend is a part time helper for Singapore cleaning company, so I asked her if she liked what she does. She works a full time schedule, but she does not have the same clients every single day.
Some of the people she works for do not need full time cleaners, and that is why she enjoys the job so much. She told me she would be bored if she had to clean the same places every single day. Continue reading I Needed a Job to Fulfill Me
I am proud to say I voted for Donald Trump for president. Does that mean that I agree with everything he does though? Absolutely not. There are some things that he says and does that just make me shake my head, but I honestly feel like he is taking the country in the right direction. I want my kids to understand politics as well as they can, and that means I have to set a good example by knowing more than just the Trump news headlines. I take a strong stand on various issues, so I am really happy that I have such a great website to go to that helps to keep me informed.
The nice thing about this website is that it is updated instantly. Continue reading All News Related to President Trump
I thought that the panic of being able to perform at a certain level did not set in until one got established in the working world with things such as mortgages and credit card bills coming in the mail. However, the pressure to perform academically in this generation is actually phenomenal. Kids are under extreme stress to get a certain score in testing and to get a certain grade-point average. If they don’t, they feel like they are failing. Singapore physics tutors are being hired by parents to give their kids an edge or leg up in testing. When I was in school, there was no talk about academic resumes. I was happy to get an above-average score in any subject. My parents were okay with me just doing well. Continue reading It is Tough for Kids to Keep Up with Academic Pressure to Excel in Every Subject
I looked at every single detail available to me before making a decision to invest in New Futura. I really liked everything I saw with it, and the location is just fabulous. I had actually passed on several condo units mainly because of where they are located. I am the type of person who wants my cake and to eat it too. I want to be close to the action, but I do not want it right at my door step either. I want to have privacy where I live, but I do not want to have to take 40 minutes to get somewhere either.
This District 9 development is a quick walk to Orchard Road, where I can find anything and everything I would need. It is not right next to the development though, and it gives it a very serene setting because of this. After approving the location, I looked at the different facets that will make this development unique. Continue reading The Perfect Location for a Condo
Doing business online has sometimes been reduced, for the sake of simplicity, to the concepts of lead generation and conversion. The reality is that you need to be able to do both at an outstanding level to make sales and build your business. While there seems to be a limitless number of marketers trying to see you their latest “how to get traffic on the web” course, SEO remains a fundamental and time-tested way to secure targeted traffic. If you realize this and are looking for SEO in Philippines, how can you be sure to choose the best one?
First and foremost, you want a company that has a history of delivering results. Continue reading How to Choose an SEO Service in the Philippines
I had never been completely happy with how I looked as an adult. I was overweight when I was a teen, but I worked hard after university and lost all my extra weight. I felt beautiful for the first time in my life, but I also knew that there were other things I wanted to have done before I truly liked every aspect of how I looked. The main thing was my neck. I had a bit of loose skin that sagged, but that changed once I found a Singapore aesthetic clinic not too far from where I live.
I went to their website to get some more information, and I was actually stunned when I saw everything that they do there. I never had any trouble with acne, but my younger sister did. I think I was more excited that they would be able to help her than I was with what they could do for me. For me, I just had something small that I wanted done, but I knew that it would completely change how she felt about herself. Continue reading My Sister Has a New Look Now
The old place where I used to get my manicures closed down because the owner wanted to move to another country and there was no one else that could run the shop for her while she was away. I was sad to see her go, and even sadder because I wouldn’t be able to get a manicure. I had to move on and find another place that would take me. This lead me to an Orchard manicure place that would become my regular location for manicures.
I didn’t just find this place by accident. I had to do some research to find it. There’s always someone willing to open a manicure shop, and as it turned out, quite a few people were willing. Continue reading The New Place is Great
I never thought that I would use any kind of home cleaning services for Singapore. It was an odd way that I started using them too. A local charity was having a fundraising event for breast cancer awareness. I ended up purchasing several raffle tickets where the winner would get anything from a mini shopping spree to free hair cuts or cleaning services. I truly never expected to win. I figured I was just donating money to a good cause. When I received the phone call that I had won two months of cleaning services, one of the bigger prizes, I asked if I could transfer it to a friend.
When I found out that I couldn’t, I honestly considered not taking advantage of it. I mean, I was quite capable of cleaning my own home. I decided to go ahead and use the service though, and I am so glad that I did. Continue reading I Won Cleaning Services in a Raffle
My wife is a bit of a neat freak, and when we bought our first house, she insisted that we hire a pre moving in cleaning for Singapore. I told her that the previous owners of the home would more than likely have the home cleaned before we get there, but she insisted on hiring a service, so I started looking for one online. In the mean time, we packed up all of the items in our apartment, which was quite a hassle. I hadn’t realized that my wife and I collected so many items in the few years that we’ve lived in the apartment.
Packing everything took a couple of days. Continue reading It Has to Be Clean
I rarely treat myself to anything luxurious. I work hard for my money, and I usually am the one treating others to things. I put myself on the back burner, but that is completely my choice. When my best friend and I went out to dinner not that long ago though, I could not stop looking at her nails. She had the cutest paint job on them, complete with some bling. I knew she had it professionally done, and I decided that I was going to look for a place that does professional manicure in Singapore.
Just because I rarely treat myself to a luxury like this did not mean that I never do. Continue reading I Love Getting Manicures Now
I was trying to think of what I could get my grandmother for her birthday a few months ago. I decided that a trip to the zoo was in order, as she is quite active and it had been years since she had been there. The day was great right up until we left the zoo. She stumbled in the parking lot, and she went down. She laughed about it, but I could tell that she was in pain. Her back was hurting, so I took her to a chiropractor in Peoria once I called and explained what had happened.
I thought that I was going to have to make an appointment for later on in the week, but they were very receptive to my gram’s needs. She thought I was going on about it for naught, but I explained that she is my only gram, and I was going to take care of her the best way I knew how. She insisted that I go with her to the appointment, which was just a given in my mind anyway. When we got there, it was not long before we were taken back to a room, where the chiropractor joined us.
We were both surprised at how quickly everything went. Continue reading The Chiropractor Can Make Her Feel Better
