I can be a bit picky when it comes to where I live. I told my husband that I was in love with the Singapore New Futura building that we toured near the end of our hunt for a new residence, and he was pretty pleased that I finally found a place that I could be happy living in. Prior to that, we had been seeing a lot of other places that I did not like at all. I tried to be open minded about our search from the beginning, but nothing else compared to how at home I felt when I found the place that I liked best.
I grew up in a home that had meager furnishings and many things in the house were falling apart. I never felt negatively toward my parents for our living situation because they were doing the best they could with 6 children to feed. However, I did find myself becoming picky when I became an adult because I wanted a nice place to live in. Continue reading The Place That We Live Makes Me Happy Every Day
I was really excited about moving to San Antonio about a year ago. I had been raised in a very rural area, and it was my first time to have a neighbor who did not live nearly half a mile away. I had been to the city many times, but it was my first time to actually live there. I knew there would be a bit of a culture shock, but I have been loving it for the most part. I did end up looking for a company that has ADT in San Antonio, which was the biggest change for me, but I have even adapted well to that.
I had not thought about getting it before, because there is just no need for anything like that for the area I had lived most of my life. Continue reading A Security System for My New Home
Though I am originally from Canada, I have been living in Singapore for the last three years because of my husband’s work. I thought it would be hard leaving everything that I know behind. While I do miss everyone back home, Singapore has definitely grown on me. Even though I have been here three years, I am still learning new things. I visited my first TCM clinic in Singapore not that long ago, and I really had my eyes opened with that experience.
I had not been feeling well for a couple of weeks. At first, I thought it was just a cold, but my symptoms lingered on for much longer than what they would have if it was just a basic cold. Continue reading My Symptoms Were Lingering on
The bike was not new at all, in fact I rescued it from a neighbor’s garage where it had been sitting for around a decade. It was a Honda 400 cc bike, about fifteen years old. I had to replace all of the gaskets, but other than that it was just fine. Getting it to start was a bit of a chore. Because I did not do the timing correctly. At any rate I had it was a couple of days later when I ended up laying on the pavement. Eventually I went to see a Camas chiropractor to get him to work on my back, but it was quite a little adventure. Continue reading I Wrecked My Motorcyle Last Week
My husband likes to tease me a lot, and I know it is all in good fun. He teases me a lot now about my youthful appearance, but I also know that it makes him extremely happy because he knows how much happier I am now too. I had a few things going on with me as I was aging that I was just not able to get on board with, which is why I did an online search for aesthetic in Singapore. I did not like the slight weight gain, nor did I like the wrinkles or puffy eyes that mocked me every time I looked in the mirror. Continue reading I Look and Feel Much Younger Now
Getting Virtual Families 2 free money from an online cheat sure made this game a lot more enjoyable for me. It’s funny I even started playing this game because I’m a middle aged guy who usually doesn’t go for the sim type adventure games. I do like idle games, however, and there is a lot that is similar between these two types of games. Both of them go on forever, essentially, unless the makers decide to pull the plug at some point (which usually means a sequel is in the works). I stumbled over this game by accident and got hooked immediately.
Virtual Families 2 is a game where you raise a family. Sounds simple, right? It’s actually a lot more complicated as you have to build homes, grow your family, keep stuff clean, praise or scold your kids, and about a half dozen other time intensive activities that unfold in real time. Continue reading Show Me All the Money!
I really liked riding bicycles with my wife. We live in a flat area next to the water. We can ride for a couple of miles in each direction with only a very slight incline. However, my back pain was limiting how long I could stay on my bicycle. I tried a new seat and tried stretching. It was not helping. Something was going on with the nerves in my back causing me pain. I visited Sacramento chiropractors recommended by a relative, and I told the doctor that back pain was beginning to interfere in bicycle rides that I really enjoyed with my wife.
After an exam, I had a some electrical stim done along with a deep massage that felt really good. Then I had an adjustment done. Continue reading Chiropractic Medicine Got Me Back Riding My Bicycle on the Local Trails
When I was living at home with my parents, the one thing that kept me going was knowing that I was going to be on my own one day. I did not have the best childhood, but I did not let that deter me from my dreams. Instead, it fueled them. I went to college on a full scholarship, and I was able to make it on my own with a work study program to help me. After graduating, I looked at Simpsonville apartments on my computer after accepting a job at a local company there.
I did not want to live in the same town as my parents, but I also did not want to live halfway across the country either. Continue reading I Feel Like I Am at Home
I was graduating college and moving into a full time job. I had to find a place to live close to where I worked. I had friends tell me all their apartment horror stories, and I was having none of that. Instead of moving into an urban apartment structure. I looked for Lewisville apartments that were within my budget and a comfortable commuting distance from work. I found the Bluffs at Vista Ridge online, and called right away to schedule a tour. I found a one-bedroom place that was very affordable in an apartment complex that has a lot of amenities and no drawbacks that I could find. Continue reading My First Apartment Right out of College is a Perfect Place for Me to Live
I was not really that interested in this nonsense at first, especially because I was quite sure that it was illegal. However this guy I know was trying to teach me how to hack an instagram account the other day. Apparently there are different applications which you can download that will help you accomplish it, but that was another problem for me. I was not going to trust this sort of thing, for all I know it could be spying on me as well as allowing me to spy on other people. Obviously I knew what the objective was and I thought that it was extremely silly. He was using this stuff to get a look at things that beautiful girls did not want to share with him. I suppose that this is something of a motive, but it does not seem like one that makes any sense to me. Continue reading Why Would You Try to Hack Instagram?
We were looking at some Toronto party buses because of a great idea that my husband had not long ago. Every year, a group of us go to Little Britain for an event there. We normally all just take our own vehicles or catch a ride with someone else who is going, but this year our group was going to be considerably larger. If this event was just a few minutes away or even a little longer, it would still be no big deal for all of us to go the same way.
However, it is nearly 90 minutes away, and it was taking a lot of organizing things to get everything just right. Continue reading Our Limo Ride Was More Fun Than the Event
We lived in an area where the dirt was very dark brown, and the hills were filled with trees all around us. However, only the evergreens were green in December. The rest of the trees were just spindly limbs devoid of the clothing of their green leaves. The foliage in the fall was beautiful, so you might be wondering why we traded that in for one of the nicer apartments in Old Town Scottsdale. We liked Arizona even though the dirt was like concrete. I read online that Scottsdale, Arizona has an average of 299 sunny days per year! That was all I needed to hear to at least want to go visit the place.
Some people are not a fan of hot weather. I like it. However, I like it when it is not muggy. I don’t like it when it feels like you are trying to breathe through a wet sponge. The drier air in Arizona was much more pleasant on a hot day than it was at the same temperature back home. I would have moved just for the sunny days, and we planned on getting a place with big windows to let the sunshine in. Continue reading Finding the Best of All the Apartments in Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona
There is not a lot that the doctors can do about my back, I have found that out over time. Of course I was pretty lucky that I was not killed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. There was an explosion in the area around the vehicle that we were driving in and it flipped over a couple of times. All of us were hurt to some degree or another, I was one of the luckier ones, although all of us were alive and more or less able to walk away. I need to find a chiropractor in Campbell CA right now, because that is the only thing that really is going to do me a lot of good. Continue reading I Have to Find a New Chiropractor
My husband didn’t like it, but I got online and found a company that does major appliance repair in Sacramento after my spouse decided something was wrong with our freezer and needed fixing. Obviously we should have called the repair company first, but my husband thinks he is Mister Fixit and always tackles all jobs with aplomb. The problem is that he has two thumbs and can rarely repair anything. I’d say he makes any problem worse ninety percent of the time. The freezer was at least working when he started in on it. An hour later it wasn’t working at all.
Of course I’d just gone to the store and we had about fifty dollars worth of steaks in the freezer. If we didn’t get it back up and running soon, all of that money would go into the trash. Continue reading They Fixed My Freezer Up Nicely
We used Snapspy to see what our two kids were up to with the popular chat app program that they use often. One of their teachers recommended it after we pointed out that we were frustrated with not being able to watch our kids more closely. When you work a lot, you do not have time to watch what the rest of your family members in your care are doing 24/7. Ignoring things and hoping for the best can turn out to be a big problem, and that is not the route that their mother or I wanted to take. We just weren’t very sure how to balance things better, but the teacher’s suggestion was very valuable for us.
We both feel that we have great kids. They’re smart in so many ways, as well as funny and caring. Continue reading I Feel More at Ease About My Kids Now
I have a tree service in Nassau County come to my house on a regular basis and take care of my trees. I have close to three dozen on my property, and it is the best thing that I can do for them. Thankfully, most do not need any work when the tree service comes out, because that would get quite expensive if I had to have every single tree worked on. There are times though that one does need trimmed or another needs to be cut down a lot because of disease or insect damage to it.
There are a lot of reasons I use the tree service, but the main one is because I love nature. Continue reading My Trees Get Regular Care
We have been working pretty hard on the buildings and grounds committee to try to fix the problems with the church. We have a great number of things which we need to do. One of the biggest and most pressing issues is that we need some one who can help with HVAC in NYC. The sanctuary has about half a dozen high stained glass windows on each side, so even in the depths of winter it can be heated up a good deal by the sun. During the summer it is going to be unbearable in there if we do not get the air conditioning to work right. At the moment the system is working, but not very well and certainly not very efficiently. Continue reading Solving Some Problems at the Church
I recently joined my father at his heating and air conditioning business. He has been in business for several years now but things have slowed down and he needs to find a way to drum up new business. Being a child of the social media age, my first instinct was to put all the advertising funds into social media campaigns. We tried a test run of that and it went horribly. We got no new customers, but did receive a healthy dose of prank calls. Deciding on a more traditional route, we found a place that does printing in Toronto.
The company we chose to work had a great track record and other businessmen of my father’s acquaintance recommended them highly. We were able to get new business cards and fliers and some lovely brochures that we mailed out to prospective customers. After getting our cards and fliers printed out we were able to hit the ground running. Continue reading New Media or Old Media
The Marq in Tampa Florida exemplifies the new standard in apartment living and what Americans are becoming to expect when they think about renting. For the longest time Americans have viewed apartments as a temporary living space while they were working towards purchasing a house and they were never seen as much more than a temporary arrangement to most people. These days apartment living is on the rise and not just because the housing bust, over priced housing or harder to get bank loans. As a society we are beginning to shift away from home ownership towards apartment communities and looking at The Marq in Tampa Florida it’s easy to see why.
Apartment communities in the past were basically four walls a laundry room on premises and if you were lucky, a pool. Today the apartment experience is much different because designers and property managers realized that Americans need and demand so much more. The classic box style apartment has given way to flowing floor plans that offer the best in quality amenities and hardware. Continue reading The New Standard in Apartment Living
When I first asked my wife what she thought about getting into real estate where we would own local apartment buildings, she was all for it. Then both of us wanted out when we were having trouble getting our apartments leased. We put a lot of money into renovations to attract young professionals as tenants. It took a few months for me to find www.multifamilytraffic.com, but they helped us get the traffic to our website to keep our apartments leased.
We had quite a few units that sat empty for months. We had people calling about the apartments, but it was the wrong people. Ours were more for singles or couples without children. Perfectly suited to the demographic of programmers, healthcare workers and other professionals we wanted to attract. Not suited for families with two or three kids. We wanted to buy a place for that type of tenant, but we did not own any places like that back then.
The www.multifamilytraffic.com team helped us get calls and traffic that was our demographic. It was a breeze then to lease our places. Continue reading We Went from Having Empty Apartments to Buying Another Property in No Time
My dad moved our little family to Singapore during my last year in high school because he was put in charge of a manufacturing business here. I had to learn the local language quickly so that I could go on to college. I was accepted to a university here, but I quickly realized that I needed some extra help, so I go to a business that helps with JC physics tuition so that I can make it through my physics classes more easily at school. I had found that my teachers at my university spoke quickly and flew through each lesson quickly. I needed the help that comes with the help of tutors. I did not want to spend more than 4 years going to college, and the only way to do that was to do something about getting outside help.
I love everything about Singapore. Continue reading Extra Help is Allowing Me to Go to School More Easily in Another Country
I had to use a seo company in Philippines to help boost my online marketplace. I run a site that essentially helps other people make money. It’s not an auction site like a certain huge online company, but rather a place that can host other people who want to sell their homemade products without the headache of starting their own websites. Many of my customers are older people who wish to make some money in their retirement, but who lack the skills to launch a full blown online ecommerce site. It’s fun to help other people realize their dreams.
But it was also hard to get people to visit my site so that my customers could sell their products. Considering that I’m hosting a platform for other businesses, it goes without saying that getting the word out about my platform is hugely important. Continue reading Make Sure You Are at the Front of the Line
While looking for a new place to live here in Singapore, New Futura quickly moved to the top of the my list. Looking for a place to live here can be one of the most frustrating things about living in this country. It’s not like other places where you’ve got a lot of real estate options to choose from. Want to live in the country? That’s not really going to work here. Want to buy a really large house because you’ve got a large family? Again, not likely here unless you’ve got a huge pile of money lying around.
If you want to live in a nice place here, you’re going to live in a condo. That’s all there is to it. In a small country like this where almost the entire place is a large urban city, there’s simply not a lot of options other than moving into a high rise and making it work. Continue reading The Condos of the Future Today
House cleaning for Singapore really got me out of a mess recently. My mother in law is coming in from overseas in order to stay with us for about four months. We recently had our first child and she wants to spend a lot of time with her first grandson. Her and I get along ok most of the time, but even my husband will admit that his mother is a very demanding and exacting person. Everything has to be just right for her, and she often refuses to take no for an answer. It’s going to be an ordeal.
Before she even arrived I started talking about getting our home cleaned up. My mother in law is used to keeping her own abode immaculate, so I knew we weren’t going to be able to just pick up a few things and call it good. Our home needed a cleaning from top to bottom. Continue reading Kept Things Looking Great During a Stressful Time
There are all kinds of things to watch on the Internet about makeovers for your home. We have done everything we could to make our place look as nice as it could. We struggled a bit as a newly married couple just out of university with no family to offer any support. We worked hard to make our way through school. We met working a job to pay for school. Now that we were in our careers, we were looking at new condos. PARC Life executive condos are under development, and we liked what we saw in the brochure and online.
It is five towers on a tract of land overlooking Canberra Park. There are plenty of amenities to make any new condo owner very happy. It has tile and laminate flooring that is nicely trimmed. The AC is provided by Mitsubishi wall-mounted units for a nice even cooling throughout the condo. Continue reading We Are Moving to a Newly Developed Executive Condo in Singapore
It didn’t take me long when looking at apartments for rent in Temple Terrace to find the one that I am living in now. The lodge at Hidden River is the most beautiful and practical choice. I say beautiful because of the surrounding area. It is not right in the city, so I am able to see lots of trees and flowers, plus the lake is just a short walk away as well as the parks where I often ride my bike. It is also the practical choice because of everything that is included with one of the apartments here.
Just the apartment amenities is enough to make a person feel spoiled. Continue reading This Apartment is So Perfect for Me
