In This City You Must Protect Your Own

June 15th, 2018

Why did I call ADT in San Antonio a few months after moving here? Because I looked at the crime statistics. Do a search online for my fine city and you’ll quickly discover some very disturbing information about this Texas city. I found a site that says the crime in this city is one of the highest in the country. They gave the city a rating of three on a crime index. One hundred is the safest. A three! The criminals here specialize in rape, violent assaults, and manslaughter and that’s just for starters. The murder rate is sky high as well.

Why would I live here? I got a job transfer and I absolutely love the company I work for and refuse to quit. It’s as simple as that. They pay me enough money that I can afford to live in a nicer area of the city, but that has positives and negatives. Continue Reading »

We Needed to Be in the Right School District and Close to Mass Transit

May 2nd, 2018

Choosing a place to live is probably the biggest financial decision any family can make. Even if you find the most perfect place with all of the fancy amenities that you want, it may be in a district where you do not want to send your children to school. For us, school choice was also a big deal. We were excited then we found out where The New Futura condo towers were being built. It was right in the area we wanted to live.

Their website is at www.thenewfuturacondo.com.sg. Also, if you know anything about Singapore, you know that individual car ownership is expensive. Since we are an island nation with limited space, citizens are encouraged to use the massive public transit system. To own a car you need to buy a permit. It is not cheap. However, we have a permit for a car, and we own one. Continue Reading »

Learn the Importance of User Interfaces for Web Design

December 29th, 2017

I needed to take a user experience design course in order to better understand my job as a web designer. I learned how to code several years ago when my job became redundant, and started freelancing in web design as a way to make some money while I transitioned to a different career field. What I didn’t understand at the time is that web designing would become my new career. I became quite adept at building websites for various concerns. I’ve built everything from big business websites to sites for educational institutions. I’ve even built some unique blogs for a few friends.

I excelled at building traditional sites, but the strong move to mobile devices such as phones and tablets started to concern me as a designer. The problem is that the user interface for mobile devices is quite different from traditional sites you access using a desktop or laptop computer. Continue Reading »

What is the Best Meal Replacement?

December 5th, 2017

I have been working out a little more lately, because I need to lose about fifteen to twenty pounds. It is going to take a good deal of time and a very great deal of discipline for me to take the weight off. At the moment I am thinking about trying a meal replacement plan and reading things like Ideal shake reviews and that sort of thing. Of course I am already looking at ways to cut the calorie intake. There are different things that you need to understand about eliminating calories, first off the easiest thing to do is what I have done already. I stopped drinking sweet tea and soda, which when you think about is just a ridiculously quick and simple way to get fewer empty calories. If you drink a glass of water, then that has no calories in it and it is just as wet as the soda is. Continue Reading »

My First Pregnancy Was a Beautiful Experience

November 14th, 2017

I always thought that a pregnant woman needed to be handled with kid gloves. There is the obvious reasons why, because she is carrying a precious life inside of her, but I also thought that a woman was not as strong when she is pregnant. That all changed when I became pregnant myself, and I would get irritated with people who thought I could not do anything for myself. When I started looking at different chiropractors in Santa Maria to choose one, many of my family members thought I was making a dreadful mistake.

I had to have patience with them because I actually had felt the same way myself. It also had some of the other women in my life chuckling because they had gone through the same thing. Continue Reading »

Getting Help Really Opened My Eyes About What else Was Going on with Me

November 9th, 2017

I’d noticed that people talk about many different Camas chiropractors over the years, yet I’d never bothered to go see one for no particular reason other than I forget to do a lot of things. When I started having trouble with my back, I overheard someone during my morning commute on the bus talking about chiropractors. I suddenly paid attention. I typically try not to eavesdrop when it comes to conversations on the bus, but it was a very interesting conversation. I apologize for butting into her conversation, and I asked her more. She said that she had been going to for chiropractic care for about 5 years and she gave me the contact info so that I could make an appointment, too.

I’ve always known that I’m not like other people. I’m intelligent, but I don’t get things done like everyone else. I’m incredibly forgetful, and no matter how hard I have tried to break that habit on my own, it has continued on. It affects me in so many ways, and it also brings about a ton of stress.

Loving Every Moment of My Hectic Life

November 2nd, 2017

I was always tired, which was not normal for me. I had trouble sleeping, it hurt when I would stand for too long in one place, I had very little energy, and I was tired. That seemed to cause me the most trouble because I have a lot of responsibilities. I simply could not afford to just lay around doing nothing. I talked with my doctor, and he told me that he thought I needed to see his chiropractor in Santa Barbara. That is why I like my doctor so much. He is not afraid to think outside the box.

He did some blood work first to see if there was a medical reason for the symptoms I was experiencing, but everything came back good. I was tired of being tired, and I was tired of hurting, so I called the chiropractor that he had recommended. Continue Reading »

The Perfect Apartment for a New Graduate

April 16th, 2017

I recently graduated college and decided that I wanted to move out on my own. After searching many different locations and areas throughout the state, I finally decided that I wanted to live in McDonough, and more specifically, at Crossings at McDonough. The area is so beautiful, and there are lots of things to do. I don’t ever see myself getting bored here. This was one of the first apartments I considered. I like that it was centrally located and close to the highway. Getting around town would be a breeze if I lived here. I can easily shop or go to the movies without having to worry about traffic.

In addition to its location, I was impressed by everything that came with the apartment. I love hosting friends at my place, so I was thrilled when I saw the BBQ and picnic area. It has arrested feel to it, while at the same time feeling very modern and updated. It’s right near the playground, so if anyone want to bring their kids, they would be entertained as well.

Exploring New Apartments with My Roommate

April 7th, 2017

My roommate and I decided that it’s time for us to move into a larger apartment. We want to stay in the same area, but we really need to find a place that offers us more space and is more modern. I found one apartment community that looked really interesting and told my friend to visit www.padonharvard.com. These apartments are some of the newest in the area. One of the features that attracted me to this place is the rooftop sky lounge. Having such a feature makes the place feel like I really am living in a huge metro area. I can see is inviting our friends over for parties in the lounge all the time. Continue Reading »

The Air Conditioning Broke Down

September 15th, 2016

Of course this would have been a lot more convenient if it had waited another month and a half until the end of summer. However it has not and I am trying to figure out what it will cost to hire someone who does repair on hvac in NYC. I am trying to figure out what happened to my pal Lenny, who used to work in the field. Of course he would have been more than willing to have come and helped me out on the side. That of course means that he would be more than happy to fix my problem so long as we did not involve the IRS in the matter. Of course that is of no relevance to me. Continue Reading »

You Have to Make an Effort to Keep Your Relationship Healthy

January 24th, 2016

When people get married, they do not think much about the work that it takes to stay happy in that marriage as the years go by. People are often so happy that it automatically seems that it will always be that way. I am not talking about the first five or so years. I’m talking about being together for 15, 20 or even many more years. It’s up to the couple to do all that they can to make each other happy. That’s why when I learned about Semenax pills recently, that I wanted to buy them and try them out to see if they would add a little spice to our relationship. Continue Reading »

I Get to Watch My Favorite Programs from Back Home Now

August 2nd, 2018

When I decided to move to this country, I did so because I wanted to be near my son, his wife and my grandchildren. Separately I wanted to have a better life than I did in my home country. After I moved here, I found myself missing TV programming from back home, though. My son solved this by going to https://www.cablehdtvs.com to buy a little machine for me that allows me to watch the very same programming that I used to watch daily in my home country. I had no idea this was possible, but getting to watch all the things that I watched for years has given me a little bit of comfort while I settle into my new life here.

When I lived in Mexico, I lived a pretty simple life. My husband is no longer alive, so I had to rely on my own life skills to get by each day. Continue Reading »

I Am Getting Ready to Move

April 2nd, 2018

I had been looking around for some time, mostly because I wanted a place that is closer to the office so that I would not need to spend so much of my time commuting back and forth to the financial districts of Singapore. Of course this place only works so long as I am sharing it with one of the people who work in the Bank of America building. I had no clue who he was when he came up to me, apparently someone we both knew had told him I was looking. I went to https://www.kleepers.com and tried to figure out how much they will charge me to clean up my place after I get all of my stuff moved out of it. Continue Reading »

Getting Physics Tutoring for a Company Promotion

March 6th, 2018

I wanted to boost my own chances of improving my job situation. I needed to brush up on my sciences a bit in order to test for a higher position in the company I work for. I was competing with people fresh out of university, but I had experience and a good reputation at work on my side. I planned on acing the exam for the position, so I sought out Singapore physics tuition months before the testing began. I knew the department and the job. I was just afraid of how I would perform on the test not having the equations and principles of physics so fresh in my mind like I did just out of college when I got this job.

The test result had a certain percentage cutoff point that applicants needed to reach. It was a really tough test. So much so that everyone that takes it is surprised at the low scores they actually receive. Passing scores, but, nevertheless, low overall. Continue Reading »

I Was Feeling Very Tired All the Time

December 28th, 2017

I did not know anything about TCM in Singapore, but I was committed to learning as much as I could online. The reason for this is because I had not been feeling well, and my regular doctor could not find anything wrong with me. I was just tired all the time, and I tried different things that my doctor suggested to no avail. He was not overly concerned because all my lab tests came back okay, but I was not satisfied with just doing nothing. I had heard good things about TCM, and I decided to research it further.

I had read about acupuncture helping with fatigue, but I was concerned about the pain of having that many needles stuck into my skin. I need not have worried though because it was not painful at all. Continue Reading »

I Give Myself Rewards when I Do Well

December 28th, 2017

I had been eyeing the Singapore New Futura building near my apartment for quite some time. I had been gunning for a management position at work, and I told myself that I would move into one of the condos there if I got the position. I’m quite competitive, and setting my sights on earning a big reward that comes along with a goal that I want to reach really helps me to put my best effort toward a goal. I’ve been using this type of strategy for many years, and it really does work.

After I graduated from high school, my dad said that I was floundering around in life far too much. Continue Reading »

My Photography Business is Booming Now

December 27th, 2017

Thanks to seo service in Philippines, my photography business has never been better. I decided to specialize in taking photos of children in the hopes that I could increase my business. The problem is that there are many people and businesses who have been involved in child photography for much longer than I have been. They have good reputations and people know they can trust them with their childrens’ portraits. How was I going to be able to break into that crowded field? I needed some help if I was going to make it in that cutthroat business.

Search engine optimization turned out to be the trick. Continue Reading »

Love the Way You Kept My Home Perfect

November 25th, 2017

Since I was only going to be in Singapore for six to eight months, I was renting a short term rental condo near my new job, I knew I would be too busy to clean. I went online to find a cleaning service; my company actually recommend it to me. I did a Google search for home cleaning services in Singapore. It is not that I couldn’t clean; I just didn’t want to spend any free time I had cleaning. I know with my job was going to keep me busy, but when I wasn’t busy I wanted to do sightseeing and explore the area. I was very excited about the shopping possibilities. My family was excited that I could find them some great gifts for Christmas too. I have to admit getting my shopping done for the holiday was exciting for me too.

Finding your website was easier than I thought it would be. Continue Reading »

I Had the Trip of a Lifetime with My Friends

November 17th, 2017

I invited several of my girlfriends over for brunch one day, and we began talking about some things we should all do together. We end up on agreeing to visit another country, and then next thing I know we were in Singapore just weeks later. The very first thing that we chose to do there was to get a manicure and pedicure in Singapore at this quaint little spa that we stumbled across. Going to a nail salon was something that we often did together back home, and we thought it would be interesting to try it in a place that was so new to us.

As someone who had never been out of my own state, being in another country was nothing short of amazing to me. There was so much to take in everywhere that I looked in my new surroundings. Continue Reading »

My Personal Outlook on Improving Body Aesthetics

November 4th, 2017

Looking good and feeling good go together. It is not something you can measure to the point of being able to program it as an algorithm either. A person wanting to look better may already look fine to other people, but the person may perceive a flaw in their looks others do not even notice. Maybe someone wants a smaller nose or a more rounded jawline. Maybe someone is not happy with breast size or the shape of one’s cheekbones. Individual aesthetic in Singapore can vary from individual to individual. There are some cultural norms that are expected for men and women, then there are the personal ideas of what constitutes beauty and perfection for one’s body size and shape.

There are people with dark eyes that want light blue. There are people with green eyes who want brown. Continue Reading »

I Was in Denial for Far Too Long

October 21st, 2017

I felt embarrassed after I figured out that my husband was cheating. I had always thought it odd that friends did not catch on quickly to the fact that their own husbands were cheating until it had been going on for years. Then, it happened to me. The number one thing that helped me was to figure out how to spy on Snapchat so that I could get a really good look at what he was up to with his account. A friend taught me how to do it with the help of a program that had worked really well for her. Without her help, I would not have found out what I needed to know so quickly.

I waited until I was 30 years old to get married. I had heard so many times about how getting married when you are in your early 20s can cause so many problems for couples. When you are only 20, you are considered an adult, but you still have a lot of growing up to do. Continue Reading »

I Am Getting a New TV This Year

October 7th, 2017

There is nothing wrong with our TV, but I have still been thinking about getting a new one this year. When I was out shopping last year, I was just really surprised at the prices of some of the big screen TVs. I did not plan for it last year because I was buying computers for my two sons, but I knew that this year’s deals were going to be very similar if not better. I am waiting to view Cyber Monday TV deals 2017 to see what they look like this year, but I am pretty optimistic that I will have a new TV for the living room this year.

I was able to find a new site that is going to help me better prepare for this. Continue Reading »

Parc Life is Better Than I Expected

October 7th, 2017

When I first saw the site plan for Parc Life, I was truly impressed. I love the area that it is located in, mainly because it is right next to Canberra Park. That is not the only reason though. The location makes Parc Life so convenient to a lot of other things too, including the hospital, the mall, and just about anything else that a person or family could want or need. It is real close to the MRT as well, which is only a few minutes walk away. This makes the location even better since most anything can be accessed via the MRT.

With everything that is offered at Parc Life, there really isn’t even a need for me to want to go anywhere for days at a time. Continue Reading »

DWI Lawyer Invaluable when Traveling out of State

August 14th, 2017

My friend Amy and I had traveled New York for a college friend’s wedding. We were both enlisted as bridesmaids and because we had already spent many hundreds of dollars on dresses, we opted to drive ourselves to save a little money on travel expenses. Unfortunately, that decision was headed toward disastrous after Any got pulled over by the police and charged with driving while intoxicated. I quickly began the search for a dwi lawyer in Albany NY as I watched Amy get taken to the police department.

The whole situation was ridiculous. We had managed to find our hotel and get unpacked on the Friday before the Saturday wedding would take place. We stopped in and saw our friend, the bride-to-be, and while she was frantically spending the day before her big event taking care of last minute details, Amy and I went out to explore Albany. During the course of the day we stopped at a cute little bistro type restaurant and had two glasses of wine with our mid-afternoon meal. Continue Reading »
