Taking my child to the Bukit Timah tuition centre turned out to be the best decision my wife and I made. He’s getting ready to take some very important exams at a school and he absolutely needed a lot of help in the subject of physics, which is admittedly one of the hardest subjects in school for most kids. My son can coast through most of his other subjects, but he comes to a skidding halt when it comes to anything related to this science topic. It was certainly one of my problem areas in school.
You’re either born with the knowledge to do well in this topic or you’re not, or at least that was how I always thought about it. I had a friend back in school who just excelled naturally at it. Continue reading My Kid Has a New Found Love for Physics
I never thought I would be able to make it moving my family and myself to Singapore for a long-term job project for the company I work for. I am from a state that has large areas of space where you can have days where you don’t hear any traffic or see anyone else other than your family. I pictured Singapore as being a crowded fully urbanized island nation. Well, the New Futura condo project where my company owns a residential condo was a real help in dispelling that preconceived viewpoint I had about Singapore.
I was thinking this way because I know people who have been to Japan, and I have a relative that lives in China. They are used to urban living, and they tell me how the concept of personal space is different in some other countries. My friend who spends a lot of time in Japan tells me how it is crowded yet orderly. However, seeing people packed into subways like sardines in a can is not my cup of tea. Continue reading Finding Personal Space on an Island Filled with People
Thanks to an aesthetic medical clinic for Singapore, my wife and I successfully rid our daughter of a really bad case of acne. We moved here about six months ago and she’d been having the problem back in the States. We managed to keep it under control there, but I think the stress of moving across the world to a brand new city caused her acne to get much worse. It got so bad that she didn’t even want to go to school, and frankly I couldn’t blame her. It did look quite awful and I didn’t want her to get bullied at her new school.
My husband and I researched our options and found a clinic nearby that treats acne with all the modern techniques. Continue reading They Sure Fixed My Daughter’s Acne
If you are a fan of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), you know that it is not always easy to find the best providers. The great thing is that doing your due diligence will certainly lead you in the right direction. Here are some pointers that will help you locate good TCM in Singapore.
Don’t Let Price Guide You
One thing you have to remember is that good TCM in Singapore and bargain basement prices are not usually synonymous. The old adage about getting what you pay for certainly applies here. If your main point is to save money, there is a chance that the provider you find will be less than stellar. Continue reading How to Find Good TCM in Singapore
Well it is not exactly like that, but I have been taking some classes in advertising to help me with the new job that I have sort of been squeezed into. I am taking a course called skillsfuture copywriting right now, which is about learning how to make print ads for the most part. At any rate this is a rather strange position, since I do not really have too much education in the field that I am working in. I knew nothing about advertising when I got here, but they somehow decided that I should do it. Continue reading I Have Gone Back to School
I used to take things like tying my shoes for granted, and I know that I will do the same thing again one day. Right now though, I am just very thankful that I can do it. I didn’t have any problems up to about a year ago. Then, my knee went crazy on me, and I was having a hard time with the pain. My doctor said it was arthritis, and that there was very little that could be done. He did tell me that I could see a chiropractor in Camas who would be able to help me manage the pain better.
I knew I needed to do something because it was so bad that I could not even bend down to tie my shoes. My husband did not mind helping me, but I wanted to be able to do something as simple as that without feeling like crying because it hurt so bad to bend my knee. Continue reading Chiropractic Care Has Helped Me with My Arthritis
I guess it is simply having new-to-me surroundings that causes me to become so excited about moving to another apartment. It’s not like I get bored of where I am living. But finding something that is new and even better than where I lived before is so fun to me. I even love move-in day! I went through a lot of sites looking for a place that sparked something in me, and I came across a website showing an apartment complex that looked amazing to me. I have a nice place, but this place is even nicer and costs even less! I was really looking forward to going there to take a look around as soon as possible.
I am lucky that I don’t spend my money on frivolous things. Instead, I like to Make sure that I have a lot of money on hand for any types of emergencies that come up at any time. Continue reading I Can’t Wait to Live in the Nice Place That I Found
You know that song about working on the railroad? Well, I actually do that for a living. I am not an engineer who drives the trains. I am the guy who does the heavy lifting fixing the miles and miles of track. I use big and small machines and have to do everything from manually dig to even welding rails. There is a tremendous amount of lifting, bending and stooping. I would not be able to keep my job if it were not for my chiropractor in Sacramento that I go to at least a couple of times per month. When I really aggravate my back, I go a couple or three times per week.
The relief I get beats any pill or muscle rub. Sometimes I go it is just for extreme muscle fatigue. Other times it is nerve pain from a subluxation of a vertebra. When the pain shoots down my leg into my foot, I know it is sciatica pain. An adjustment fixes that right up. Continue reading My Railroad Job Does a Job on My Back
I was driving down the road a few weeks ago when some young guy ran a stop sign and plowed right into me. I was going slow, but he was speeding. I spent a night in the hospital for observation, and they told me when I was released that I should follow up with my primary care physician. They also suggested that I see a chiropractor in Redding CA because accident victims sometimes do not feel the brunt of their injuries until days or even weeks after the accident has happened.
I was already hurting, so that was not something I wanted to hear. I thought that I was already going through the worst of it, so I decided to take their advice right away and contact a local chiropractor. Continue reading Why I Have Regular Chiropractic Appointments
Last week I made an appointment to take a tour of the local apartment community. They’ve been on my radar for several months now, but I’m just now getting around to focusing on my move and finding my next home. I’m really excited to take a closer look at the community and visit site features that only residents can access. The person I scheduled a tour with sounded very nice on the phone, and made me feel very welcomed, even before setting foot on the property. I’ll make sure that I wear my walking shoes, because I plan on taking in every square inch of the facilities.
One of the things that I want to focus on when I’m there is the clubhouse. Continue reading Scheduling an Appointment for an Apartment Tour
Looking for a new place has never been fun for me. There are some people out there who enjoy taking their time and finding just the right place to live, even if it takes them weeks or even months. I just don’t have that kind of patience. When I had to move closer to Atlanta, I decided to go online and find an apartment that way. I had never done that before, but I figured it would be a quick and efficient way to find what I want. It definitely proved to be both those things when I found www.padonharvard.com.
This is the website for a new apartment complex that is right on the outskirts of Atlanta, and it is actually in the perfect location for me since my job is on the outskirts of Atlanta as well. I thought that I would end up getting an apartment in the city and commuting, but this makes my travel time so much easier. Continue reading So Much I Like About the Pad
It took me quite awhile to get this job and I am pretty much already looking for a new one. I am not working for the government, but the government is pretty much paying the freight in the end of it all. The new budget may well change all of that. In fact things would be going great for me if it were not for the uncertainty about the job. I am living with my girlfriend for free at the moment, she has one of these lovely luxury apartments in Towson MD. Of course I had no idea when I started to date her while I was a senior at VCU, but she and her family are really rich. They have some sort of thing in the stock market, a brokerage of some sort. It is pretty lucrative from the way I hear it, but of course she is not really involved. She works in the State Department.
That is actually a good job if you want to eat for free. Continue reading I Have Moved in with My Girlfriend
My cousin Vince is the one who found this place for me. It about half a dozen blocks from where he lives and he was looking at buying it for a flipping project, but he was not sure that he could get the finances. He is already working on this place. Of course he knows what he is doing and he gave me a list of the things that I need to do. One of the first things is to get an exterminator in NYC to come in and find out what he needs to do. The place has some bugs and maybe some rodents, but that is something that you have to hire someone else to do. Continue reading Just Started Work on the New House
My husband works in construction, and he has told me about the amount of waste that he has seen on different job sites that he visits. He has especially seen this with copper, because the price of scrap copper can make it quite worthwhile to collect as much scrap as possible to sell it to a scrap metal dealer. He asked his boss if it would be okay to start taking the scrap copper metal home with him after a job was done, and his boss had no problem with that. If he did not take it, then the owner of the property would just end up throwing it out or making money on it.
His boss did not think it was worth it to sell the scrap metal to a dealer because he thought that it would probably break him even. Continue reading Scrap Copper Can Really Add Up
Did you know that chiropractors can go to school for more hours than what an MD does? They also are likely to be more highly trained in reading imaging results from things such as xrays, and are likely to spend three or four times the amount of time learning diagnostics. The MD has more hours in pathology, psychiatry, and learning to prescribe medications. A chiropractor does not prescribe medicines. I went to a chiropractor in Campbell CA that was recommended by my DO. That is a Doctor of Osteopathy.
A DO is an MD that has received more training. They know more of how the body is connected as a unit. For example, my DO explained how the pain in my scapula was associated with the digestive issues I was having. Continue reading When Seeing the Chiropractor is More Than Just for Backaches
I needed appliance repair in Sacramento immediately. My stokve broke and Thanksgiving was the very next day. I had 18 family members who had already arrived for the big meal that I was preparing. It was too late in the day to find an appliance store open so that I could buy a new one. I had made some things in advance, but I had a fridge full of foods that I had not yet prepared. The thought of all the food going to waste and needing to order a dozen pizzas for our holiday meal was not appealing.
After consulting the phone book and calling 15 different appliance repair businesses, I finally found a company that answered when I called. the man who picked up the phone sounded very tired. In the background, I could hear a lot of people talking. I thought maybe he was at a restaurant at first. I told him why I was calling. he then told me that he understood, he had been watching his wife running around the house trying to get ready for their own Thanksgiving meal. He said that he had 10 family members who had come in just for the occasion. He was willing to help me.
It turned out that the man that I spoke to to that night was someone that I went to college with. It was great to see him and get caught up while he worked on getting my stove running again. My old friend was the owner of the appliance company that I called, and he was doing really well for himself. The fact that he showed up the night before a major holiday spoke volumes about what a good company he runs. I will be sure to use his service the very next time I need someone again.
Over the last few year the apartment complex where we were living at had declined. The management just was not keeping things up, and we had a few neighbors that we actually did not care for. My wife and I started looking for new apartments in Sandy Utah a few months before our lease was up. We wanted to move into a brand new apartment in a new area. We wanted something close to the Summit Academy High School. We found Beacon Hill Apartments, and were impressed by the floor plans that were available. We were able to afford a four-bedroom apartment with three bathrooms!
As soon as we signed the lease, we could not wait to pack up and move out of our old place. However, we took our time and did it right. Continue reading We Finally Have an Apartment Where We Have a Guestroom and Guest Bath
My wife and I have always liked apartment living. In all of our years together we have never owned a home. I have relatives who tell me horror stories of living in apartments where they had nothing but trouble. My brother says he would not live in a place where you could not hammer a nail to hang a picture. Well, I live in a place where someone will hang them for me. So what’s the big deal? Anyway, we moved a year or so ago to new apartments in Cordova. We wanted to have a place with privacy gates and remote control access. Plus, we wanted a swimming pool. The new apartment has that and so much more.
They have a really nice clubhouse, garages and a fitness center. We go there at least three times per week to work out. It is so much better than having to drive to a gym. Continue reading We Have Lived in Apartments Since We Were Married Years Ago and Like It
I am not a picky person when it comes to most things. However, when it comes to where I will live, I want certain things that I am just not willing to compromise on. I am the type of person who is completely happy living in an apartment, but I have certain standards for the ones I will live in. When I decided to move, I did an online search for an apartment for rent in Cordova TN so I could narrow down the list easier. I knew that I would be able to find out the features and details of the different complexes right from their website.
The main thing I needed was a management team that takes their responsibilities seriously. Continue reading I Am Picky when It Comes to Apartments
If you have a pet canary, you should know that you can teach it all kinds of things. Birds are really smart. However, they really need to bond with you and trust you completely. This takes a huge amount of patience. Birds will snuggle you and want to be close to you if you are patient with them and take care of them. Canaries can even be taught to mimic a few words. They are not as good at it as parrots, but they are pretty amazing little learners. If they are quiet, you can teach your canary to sing by playing canary song CDs over and over again. They will hear the wild songs and start to sing.
Birds are wonderful at learning new things. A crow can recognize a person who threatens them. They do not forget. I have heard that an adult macaw is about the same as a two-year old child. Continue reading Teaching a Canary How to Sing Songs
When we moved here we had a couple of window air conditioners. One was in the bedroom, and the other one was in the living room. We worked hard to be able to buy this old house. We have been renovating it ever since. We bought it soon after we were married. We have two children and central air now. The kids are 12 and 15, and the AC started blowing warm air during a hot week in July. We called a local company that does air conditioner repair in NYC to come out and take a look at the system. The company that installed it was no longer in business.
We never did anything to the system since we had it installed other than to keep the fall leaves from gathering around the unit with the fan on the outside of the house out back. Continue reading Low Refrigerant and Dirty Coils Had Our AC Blowing Warm Air
I want to have a nice place to live at, but I am more concerned about what is on the outside of the condo rather than the inside. With what I want outside, I know that any development that has all of it will also have nice designs for the actual condos too so it all works out in the grand scheme of things. I wanted to make sure that during my downtime away from work, there would be plenty of things for me to do at New Futura in Singapore since that is the condo that really captured my attention with the little bit of info I had on it.
I went to the website to get more information, and I knew that I was going to call this place home in the very near future. There is just so much to do there. First off, it is gorgeous. While I am not the type to go out and plant a garden or have flowers all over my condo, I certainly do appreciate the beauty of nature. Continue reading Getting a Nice Condo with Amazing Features
Of course I am wearing way too many hats right now. At night I play the drums, but I also deal with the club owners and those guys do not always like to pay up at the end of the day. Today I have been working to fix our web page, which is a really big deal since the band had to change names because of this legal nonsense. Some other band in Ohio had the name we were using under trademark. At any rate a place that does seo in Philippines is trying to fix it so that we get more people to our site. Continue reading The Band is out on the Road
I got home after work so that I could make a snack for my girls in anticipation of when they would get home from school. I walked in the front door of my home and found it to be a mess because my husband had cleared all of his things out and left. After taking a day to get over the initial shock, I looked for professional cleaning services in Singapore so that I could have someone come over to help clean everything up. I needed to make the place look presentable again for the sake of my daughters.
I felt foolish when I realized that I didn’t understand why my husband left at first. I tried to think about what I might have done wrong. I had no answers. When my girls came home from school, they were devastated when they found out what happened. They were also very angry when they couldn’t understand why their father made such a big mess in our home when he left. Continue reading I Didn’t Have Much Time to Feel Sorry for Myself
My parents decided to go on one of those cruises that takes you around the world. They were gone for nearly two months, and I really missed them. I was so happy they were finally doing something for themselves though because they usually devote all of their time, money and resources to helping other people out. They were due home, and I wanted to find a company that would do a one time cleaning service for Singapore residents. My mom had cleaned before she left, but it would be nearly two months of no one really being there, so I knew that a fresh cleaning was needed.
She had told me that she would take care of it when she got home, but the last thing I wanted her to have to deal with was cleaning their seven room home. Continue reading My Mom Came Home to a Clean House
I recently got divorced after being married for eight years. Things just didn’t work out and we amicably parted ways last month. It was very quick and easy since we did not have any children. Now I feel like I need to spread my wings a bit and do something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m going to start over and move to Miami Beach. This is a big step toward the next adventure in my life. My next step is to find an apartment for rent in Miami Beach as soon as possible.
I did like most people would do and did a search on the internet and made a list of possibilities. I needed to find one that was affordable and in a safe neighborhood. Continue reading Starting over in Miami Beach
Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but when you live in Vegas, it’s not like you have much of a choice. I’ve lived in Las Vegas since the day I was born. Lots of my friend decided to move after graduating college, but I chose to stay. They wanted me to go to California and New York, but I loved my home city too much to leave. Since I was an adult, I wanted to have my own apartment, rather than continue to live with my parents. I looked for Craigslist Las Vegas apartments, hoping I would find a good listing.
One of the apartment listings was a real attention grabber. The pictures of the apartment looked flashy, but in a good way. Being in Vegas, I should be used to seeing flashy things, but I hadn’t seen it embodied in an apartment complex. Continue reading I Don’t Mind Staying in Vegas
At the moment I am actually living in the same place that I am working, in truth you could probably live your entire life within the boundaries of this property. It is not anything like any of the places that I have ever worked at, there is an enormous casino and a resort. Obviously they have a hotel and they have an enormous kitchen where I am in charge of a number of other people, we cook for hordes of people every morning. Tomorrow I am going to look at an apartment for rent in Las Vegas. Actually one of the other chefs wants me to look at it. The guy who used to have my job also used to share the apartment with him. It is not a really bad place when you look at the web page, it is a really sweet looking pool and they have one of the things that I really like. A big work out facility that they describe as a state of the art facility. Continue reading I Still Have to Get Some Stuff Done
A couple of months ago, I decided to make a big decision in my life. I finally proposed marriage to my girlfriend of four years Jenny. She happily accepted and has agreed to be my wife. I was so happy that she accepted my proposal. We both were about to graduate from college with high prospects for the future. We wanted to have our own place to call home. It was time for us to make our mark in the world. We searched for North Charleston apartments to find a place for us to live our new lives together.
I first met Jenny in college. She helped tutor me in statistics. When we first locked eyes, I felt her warm presence. I knew that I had to make her mine. Little did I know, she felt the same way about me. We were a perfect match for each other.
Jenny and I decided that we wanted to move into an apartment. Continue reading My New Life with Jenny
I looked at the website for an apartment complex that was highly recommended to me, and I was really surprised at just how nice everything is there. The main thing I wanted to look at was the floor plan of the apartment that I was most interested in. I wanted to make sure that the pictures did not make it look like a really nice place but the reality of it was different. I had been duped like that once before, so I always consider the floor plans before getting too excited. This time was no exception, and I was really happy to see that the floor plans matched what the pictures show.
The living room is quite large at nearly 15 foot by 17.5 feet. Continue reading The Floor Plan is Really Nice
