Growing up in the States I never thought in a million years that I would be living on the island nation of Singapore. My wife and I moved here due to a corporate job I have that has a lot of business in this region of the world. It is nice here, but it is very urbanized. Not like cities in the States though. For example, we have a condo in the New Futura in Singapore. It is a condominium development project that is two towers that are designed to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The buildings have curves and peaks that make them resemble Asian lanterns at night. The really cool thing is how Singaporeans build natural spaces right into the buildings they live and work in.
We can go down the elevator and out the front door into green areas that are very nice to find next to where you live. Plus, there is a humongous lap pool. Continue reading Enjoying My Extended Stay Working in Singapore
My dad said that my mom had always wanted a daughter long before I was born. When I was around 5 years old, they both realized that I was a tomboy. Mom had always hoped that I would be into the same things she liked, but I had other interests in mind. I loved to play sports and loved music. When I told her that I wanted to learn music production, she chuckled. My mom and dad didn’t have any interest in music at all, but I lived and breathed music. She said they would pay for classes if I promised to stick with it for at least six months. I promised her I would, and I kept my word.
By the end of my first month of learning production, I was hooked. I dutifully got through my boring days working in a retail store and raced out of there every night to take classes. Continue reading I Want to Work in an Industry That I’m Interested in
I used to sit on the edge of the tub in the bathroom when I was a little girl so that I could watch my mom do her skincare regimen each day. She was so good about getting it done, but I am not good with doing the same now that I’m an adult. I go to a Singapore aesthetic clinic to have work done, and it really helps me to save time. I miss the old days when I used to sit and talk to mom while she put on various skin creams and did her facial exercises in the mirror. We had a lot of good talks and laughs. She taught me all the tricks that she used to keep her skin looking so nice, but I am a bit lazier when it comes to taking care of myself on my own.
Businesses were not as tech savvy as they are now when mom was younger. Continue reading My Mom and I Used to Bond While She Taught Me About Skincare
The last thing we needed to get done after moving was to clean the apartment thoroughly in order to get our security deposit back. The problem was that we were tired and used up our days off to just get the move done. The apartment looked clean with all of our stuff in it, but we could see slight discolorations on the wall where pictures hung, and the carpeting was cleaner behind where the furniture was at. This all became very apparent with it empty. We decided to hire moving out cleaning for Singapore residents to get the job done professionally. It was worth it to us just to be able to get the rest we needed and to not worry about getting our security deposit back. The cleaning cost was less than what our deposit was.
They did a fantastic job on the apartment. We stopped by and took a look before turning in our keys to the building manager. The place was cleaned and ready for a new couple to move in right away. Continue reading The Value of Having Your Home Professionally Cleaned
My husband and I have always been conscious of our choices when it comes to natural resources. We have always recycled as much as we could, and we have explored our energy options to make sure we are not being wasteful of our resources or the earth’s. We walk and bike a lot rather than take the car or public transportation. Our son grew up watching and mimicking us, so it was not surprise when he told us he wants to work in the energy field growing up. Taking a physics tuition course last year just reinforced his desire to go in that direction.
I was not sure that taking the tuition course was the best route for him because I thought he was just not applying himself to the physics course at school. Continue reading My Son Wants to Work in the Renewable Energy Field
Using the services I found at https://www.kleepers.com sure helped my sister out of a sticky situation. She called me in a dither about a situation that quickly arose and asked if I could help her out. She’d been at home for several days taking care of her sick son. He had a bad case of the flu and there was some worry that it could develop into pneumonia. This meant that she’d hardly slept in several days. Then her husband called her from work and said the boss insisted that they host a business customer from out of town.
She asked if I could take care of my nephew for several hours. Of course I agreed, but that didn’t solve all of her problems. She had to get the condo cleaned up and simply didn’t have the energy. I only had enough time to go and pick up my nephew so I wouldn’t be able to help clean. Continue reading Sure Helped My Sister out
Thanks to https://physicstuitionsg.com, my wife and I are no longer worried about our son passing his exams and getting into a good university. The thing you have to understand about Singapore is that it’s like many European countries in that education is a very serious matter. You only get one chance to ace your important exams, and passing these exams determines your future in a very big way. It’s not like America where people major in one thing and then end up doing something else entirely. Here you have to do well if you ever want to get a shot at your desired career.
My son needed to pass physics in order to get into his chosen profession, but he really struggled with the topic. I tried to tutor him myself, but that quickly turned into a real mess because I took these courses years ago and didn’t remember most of the material. Continue reading My Son Needed Some Extra Help
Of course it amused the devil out of me when the guy tried to claim that he could not afford to pay me to help him move to this new condo tower development called the New Futura. I mean this place is really expensive and you can tell this with one look of the Infinity lap pool or better yet after you realize that the place has private elevator access to every single place in it. I did not realize this at first and I was really confused the first time that we went up the elevator to the place. We had taken the heaviest thing first and it was sort of a pain to get the sofa into the elevator. When the door opened up I thought we had gone up to the penthouse or something of that sort. I was afraid we were about to get tossed out of the place for trespassing. When he told me that this was his place I was flabbergasted by the concept. Continue reading I Just Helped My Friend Move
I had a mole that started changing ever so slightly not that long ago. It was located on my neck, and it was quite obvious. Though my dermatologist told me that it was fine and would not require any medical attention, I still wanted to have it removed. She told me that I could have that done, and she even told me about an aesthetic medical clinic that does things like that. She does them too, but she was backed up for things that were not medically necessary for someone at the time.
I can understand that, and I was really happy that she gave me the information for a clinic nearby that does the same kind of procedures. Continue reading I Wanted No More Wrinkles
Thanks to seo in Philippines, I’m no longer just a florist in a corner shop. Now I’m a full fledged online entrepreneur who is making big bucks doing online sales for all sorts of situations. Did a loved one pass away and you need flowers to commemorate their passing? With a few clicks online, I’ll have some lovely flowers delivered to the funeral home. Need a bouquet for a date? We do that now too. Do you just like flowers and/or plants and are interested in beautifying your home? I’ve got just the arrangements you need to make your house shine.
It wasn’t always this way. I didn’t even think about doing a website until a couple of customers complained that they could have easily done business with me without having to come down to the shop. That made me think about all the business I might be missing because I wasn’t willing to go online and run a site. Continue reading My Floral Shop is Going Like Gangbusters
This year, I became friends with a girl who was an introvert. She didn’t really talk to many people, and mostly just stayed quiet in class. I started talking to her because I was assigned a school project with her as a partner. As we worked on the project, I got to know her a little better. She came out of her shell a little, and she asked me for advice about beauty tips because she wanted to give herself a makeover. I told her that pedicure services would be a good place to start before getting into more complicated things like make up applications.
I knew just the place for us to get a pedicure, so we went there on the weekend and hung out that entire day. This was her first time really having a pedicure, and she wanted to do it again. Continue reading It All Started with a Pedicure
I love my kids a lot, but they make my home a complete mess every time they wake up. When they make breakfast, they leave cereal all over the place, or spill milk sometimes. They even find ways to leave jelly on the breakfast table. I always get on their cases about cleaning up, but they still make messes regardless. When they’re playing around, they leave their toys everywhere, and sometimes they get stains on the wall. It’s a good thing I have a service for house cleaning for Singapore, or I would lose my mind entirely.
I first learned about the cleaning service from a friend of mine who has a similar problem. She has more kids than I do, and her kids were messing up the house in a worse way than mine. Continue reading Kids Can Make a Mess Anywhere
I needed moving out cleaning in Singapore because if I didn’t have someone come in and make the place look tidy. I thought I’d likely lose my security deposit. I have a few pets and everyone knows what that can do to the living quarters. The floors looked quite horrific even though I tried to keep up on the cleaning during the few years I lived here. I thought the landlord would come in and take one look and I’d lose my deposit as well as have to pay for some serious restorations. I know my neighbors had a problem with the landlord when they moved out.
I looked online for a cleaning service, but what I really needed were professionals who had a lot of experience with very messy places. Continue reading They Performed a Marvelous Job on My Apartment
For my birthday, a friend of mine wanted me to go to a spa, where we would get manicure service in Singapore. The concept of getting a manicure from someone else other than myself didn’t really click with me. I felt that I was just paying someone else to do something that I should be doing myself anyway, and that it didn’t fell right. My friend thought I was being silly because that’s exactly why the spa exists, for people to pay others for a service, much like everything else in life.
Despite my initial reservations about getting the manicure, once it actually started to happen, I changed my mind. The workers in the spa had a way of giving a manicure in a manner that I could have never done at home. Continue reading I Really Love the Spa
Many people think that their city has a lot of charm. It is really great to live in a country where so many people can call their favorite city home. I knew that there were a lot of cities to look at when I decided that I wanted to move away from the north. I was looking for a place in the south to call home, but it also had to be modern. I searched apartments in Charlotte NC 28217 and I saw that there were a lot of great places for me to look and check out if I decided that I wanted to move to North Carolina. Since I work from home I can work anywhere that the country that I want. Continue reading Southern City with a Lot of Charm
The website for the Overton Rise apartment complex is what made me want to live there. I knew that it would be hard to go look at apartments in person, so I took the easy way out and just did my apartment shopping online. There are obviously a lot of other people who have decided to find their new living arrangements the same way because the website was pretty incredible to look at. I was able to get all the information that I needed on both the apartment and grounds as well as the area surrounding the apartment complex.
Everything was organized nicely on the site. I was able to look at dozens of pictures of the properties there. I was able to see every room of an apartment, plus the outside areas too. Continue reading A Quick Search Landed Me My New Home
My boyfriend and I have lived in the same apartment for the last 10 years. We received a notice that our apartments were being converted into condos, so we now have to find a new apartment. I’m staying optimistic because I’m really excited about finding a new place. Our current apartment was really old, so I’m going to make sure that our next apartment is brand new. My business partner lives in some really nice apartments and told me I should check out their website. He said he really enjoys it there, and he highly recommends that I take a look.
I sat down with my boyfriend and we explored the website together. Since we would be living together, it was really important that we both were able to provide feedback throughout this process. Continue reading Looking for a New Apartment with My Boyfriend
When my wife was a child, she went to an older dentist who had very little patience. She was frightened, and his attitude scared her. He was not gentle with her, and she developed a fear of dentists over this. When we married, she told me she had not been to a dentist in several years. You would never know it because she has such a beautiful smile. I knew she needed to get to a dentist, so I started looking for one. I came across an ad that said to click here for Aurora dentists who help anxious patients change their attitudes about dentistry.
It was as if that ad was made specifically for my wife. She is a logical person who tends to not be afraid of anything. Continue reading My Wife Used to Be Afraid of the Dentist
The first time I went to Tennessee, I was only 12 years old. I still fell in love with the area, and I went back at least every other year until I graduated from high school. I then went to college at one of the branches in Kingsport, and I knew that I wanted to live in the same city for the rest of my life. I had been living in a dorm, but I knew that I needed to start looking at Kingsport TN apartments if I was going to be able to go right from my college graduation to a new job.
I have always been a hard worker, so I had a nice savings account saved up that I could rely on until regular paychecks started to come in. I was hired on at a legal firm here in town, and my start date was two weeks after graduation. That gave me very little time to find a nice apartment, but I didn’t feel pressured. That is one of the really nice things about living here in Kingsport. Everything is so laid back, and I have learned to be that way too. Continue reading Country Shores is a Nice Complex
I don’t have a problem with discipline or motivation. I have plenty of both of those. That is how I reached the national stage for swimming. I practiced more hours in one day than what some people do in a week, simply because I wanted to be the best. I was having trouble getting to the peak though, and I knew that I needed some help. I am not talking about the help that a regular coach would give. I knew that I needed to contact an elite Denver sports performance training center.
I had heard about one that has a swimming program, mainly because I know that some Olympic swimmers have trained there in the past before a competition. Since I also knew that these Olympians had won medals at their events, I felt pretty confident about contacting Landow Performance for some help. Before I did that, I went onto their website to see just what I was getting myself into. Continue reading I Am Feeling More Confident About Nationals
