My daughter became obsessed with dancing when she saw her favorite princess dancing with her prince in a cartoon. She imitated as well as she could, and she actually did not look bad for being so young and untrained. I asked her if she would look to go to a ballet school in Toronto to learn how to do it just like the princess in her cartoon did, and she talked of nothing else the rest of the day. I did not ask her on a whim, as I had been prepared to enroll her into a dance class soon anyway. This was just the perfect opening to see if it was something she also wanted to do.
I was so happy with her reaction. If she showed no interest then I would not have forced it on her as I know her interests are going to vary from my own. I just remembered my own ballet classes from when I was her age, and those are some of my favorite childhood memories. I wanted her to have the same if she wanted that, which she does. I looked at different dance schools in the area, but there was just one that really stood out to me. (more…)
I recently became engaged and am planning on marrying my best friend next year. This is something I’ve been dreaming about ever since I was a little girl. My mom and my three sisters are helping me plan the wedding. One of my sisters suggested that we should look for a Chicago wedding video company that can capture the entire day for us. A lot of my friends who are married said they wish they had hired a videographer to give them something to look back on. I think this is a good idea as I would love to sit back and watch my wedding day in the years to come.
After doing a bit of research, we narrowed down our search to a very reputable company that comes highly recommended from friends and family. (more…)
The club is going to be opening up next weekend and it is going to be a very tense thing for all of us. The boss is almost going to have a nervous breakdown it seems, but he has put a whole lot on the line here. We are doing everything that we can to promote the place and that includes hiring a place that does Singapore flyer distribution to hand out ads. We have been stationing these people outside of competing clubs to give the ads to people who are going in and out of them. That makes a lot of sense, as it is targeted to exactly the people who are willing to come to our club and spend their money. Any other sort of ad is going to get a lot of people who simply would not ever get up and go some place like this. (more…)
It is only temporary I hope, but for the moment I am out of work and the smart thing is to save as much money as I can. I have the car payment that I have to make and now I have to pay for a Keswick storage unit. My buddy Rick and I got all of my stuff in there last weekend, he borrowed a truck from his boss. That helped me a lot in fact. The job took us about three and a half hours. When we were done I bought him a 12 pack of Molson and he was happy with that. (more…)
When my son started throwing up a few nights ago, I became concerned right away. This is something that he just normally does not do, and it is the first time where he vomited more than once in a night. I thought maybe he had the stomach flu, so I made sure he had plenty of liquids and rest. The liquids seemed to make him want to throw up every time though. I knew I had to get him to his doctor, but he had no openings that day. Instead, I went to the physicians clinic here in town.
I had never been here before, but I have friends who have used it and said that it is a really good place to go for minor things like what was going on with my son. (more…)
Understanding how you can save money in today’s modern society is an important lesson that is going to take a lifetime to learn. Growing up in a household with parents that did little to budget any of their money was one of the worst things that could happen to me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my parents but I when it came to renting my first apartment I was pretty much lost. I found a site (go here for more information) that detailed plenty of information regarding the apartments that I was looking at (Brook Highland Place) and while I thought that they were reasonably priced, I quickly realized that I was not taking into account the other factors that were clearly present but unknown to me. The biggest hurdle that I faced was managing my money – managing money means that you have to be able to create a budget. Knowing exactly what your expenses are while making goals for saving money. (more…)
My pal Walter was trying to talk me in in to helping him with this project house he bought. Of course he got this place for nothing, it was foreclosed on by the mortgage people and it has been vacant for some time since then. Of course the first thing he needs to do is to find some guy who can do residential sewer cleaning in Bergen county, The pipes are a really big mess in this place and right now you have a situation which is not very sanitary and frankly it is not really possible to work in there in the current conditions. (more…)
I lost both of my parents when I was just fourteen years old. I then moved in with my grandmother, who was kind enough to give me the love and guidance I needed at that time. Unfortunately, my grandmother then passed away when I was only 19. This means that I have been on my own since then, and I have had to learn how to do so many things on my own. Things like learning how to sell my car in San Diego or getting health insurance seemed so easy to everyone else, but I often did not know where exactly I should start with these types of things.
I was in school when my grandmother passed. She used to drive me to and from my college campus every day. When she passed, I needed a car so that I could stay safe, rather than needing to walk alone at night. (more…)
It is going to be a little while before the house is the way we want it to be, but it is getting there slowly and surely. We are taking care of one thing at a time. The whole thing is to figure out what you can manage yourself and how you get where you want to be. Right now we are talking to this guy who does bathrooms and shower doors in Essex county NJ. We have a tub with a shower curtain. It is one of those old fiberglass tubs and to be honest I do not think the guy who put it in was a real professional. It looks like DIY job to us and if you go down to the basement after you take a shower, some water usually ends up down in the laundry room. We have this idea for that, but I do not know if you can practically do it. We were thinking about making a chute so you could drop the dirty laundry down in to the hamper beside the machines. (more…)
Before there was the internet and other social media to get out the word of things that were happening in a neighborhood, there were things called spot lights that they used to put out to attract people to a certain area. I remember when they had a new grocery store opening, that we went to the place that had the spot lights out to attract new people to the area to see what was going on. We were looking for things to do in the Boulevard 88 in Singapore area and we knew that there had to be some spots on social media that would be able to tell us what was going on. (more…)
When looking for a youth marketing agency these days, it really helps to do your homework. Advertising anything to the kids these days is a difficult endeavor indeed. Understanding the technology and how they interact with advertising and marketing is absolutely critical if you wish to sell to this age group. We’ve discovered that many of the traditional approaches just don’t work with these kids. They’re very savvy and quite quick to pick up on a hamfisted approach. It’s helpful if you understand memes and how they work, something no one else ever had to worry about in the old days.
I found this company through the grapevine and looked at what they’re doing with some interest. (more…)
It seems like new condo developments are popping up all over the place in Singapore, but there are still some areas where it doesn’t happen with great frequency. One of those is Leonie Hill Road in District 9, which is where the New Futura development is located. One of the reasons why this place stands out so much is because it is just rare to see a development here. Another thing that is unique is that it is not large, but it does offer more than enough features and amenities to draw the more affluent crowd there.
That is what captured my interest, just the size of it. It is only two towers, and each one is only 15 stories tall. In fact, the top two stories of each is just one penthouse. There are no one bedroom units, so the rest are comprised of two, three and four bedroom units. (more…)
I am a land lord and I own about ten units in one building. I love the people that I rent to, they are really nice and all professional. I have a few families that are on state, but they take really good care of their units. I think that people like to work hard and take care of what they have in certain aspects. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they take care of your property. I had to hire cleaning services in Singapore so that I could have someone come to the unit to clean it out in between my tenants. I always have my units cleaned because I do not want anyone to be able to say that they moved in it was dirty and they are going to try to get away with not getting back any of their deposit.
I think the reason why I always have nice people in my property is because I make them pay me first and last month’s rent, and a security deposit which is half of one month of rent. (more…)
When looking for the best trucking companies to work for, it’s absolutely critical that you spend a lot of time doing your research and talking to people who are actually truckers. A lot of people fail to do that last part and they end up working for some fly by night outfit that gives them lousy routes and horrible pay. It’s been well known for years that the trucking industry has a desperate need for drivers. I’ve been reading the stories for years, and that was before I started working for a company after I got my CDL license.
I’ve got a great job with a massive retail operation where I drive a dedicated route, get high wages and great insurance, and even better I’m home most nights with my family. Occasionally bad weather will leave me stranded somewhere, but I’m almost always home at a reasonable hour. This is not the case for most people in the industry. Most people go into over the road trucking and that’s where you sleep in the cab and have to sit around for hours not getting paid while waiting for someone to unload your trailer. Don’t end up like those guys if at a possible.
Still, I know more than a few guys who like that type of work. They like the adventure of the road (and it is an adventure both good and bad), and some of them don’t even mind unloading their own cargo for the extra pay. Even then you’ve got to make sure you work for one of the better companies. Even over the road can pay very well with great benefits if you do your homework. So if you want to get out there and drive, read up online and talk to a trucker. Get out there and be safe!
My daughter has been fortunate with her schooling for the most part. She has had some great teachers who have helped shape her into the person she is today. She has such an inquisitive mind, and I love watching her explore and discover new things on a regular basis. When she began taking physics last year, she was initially excited. It was not long though before she told me she wanted to drop the class. After talking with her about it, we decided to enroll her into a physics tuition program to see if that could get her interest back to where it should be.
Physics is going to play an important role in her future as she wants to be an engineer. She wanted to be an astronaut when she was younger though, and that is when her love for anything to do with space started. Obviously, to become an astronaut, physics is very important. (more…)
Of course we inspected the foundation along with the rest of the house when we were thinking about buying this place. It probably would have scared off a lot of people, but I already knew a masonry contractor in Nassau county NY who I could trust. I sent him some pictures that I took and asked him what he thought about. Obviously he was not going to give me a quote without seeing it in person, but he told me that it was something that he could fix fairly easily. However he also told me that he was booked solid and he gave me the number for this old guy. He was obviously retired, but he was doing work on the side and he was willing to take the work, but we did it in a way that was probably not all that legal. I did not care, but I could see the government not really liking it. (more…)
I have loved living and working in Singapore for the last year. It has been a great adventure. I love the condo that I rented, even though my work kept me very busy and I didn’t see a lot of my rented home. But when it was time to leave, I wanted to make sure I got my deposit back so I needed a house cleaner. I didn’t want just anyone, so I went online and did an internet search for a cleaner, searching the words post tenancy cleaning for singapore seem to help the most.
I found your website cleaning service right away. (more…)
The Singapore physics tuition service has been getting a lot of work because of the students that have been taking classes this year. They’ve all been coming home with problems that they don’t understand, even after asking the teacher for help. My own twin boys had the same problem, and the only solution that I saw for them was to get tuition, because there was no way that I was going to be able to help them with my limited skills in physics. I forgot everything I knew about that complicated subject many years ago, and even then, it wasn’t really a lot.
My twins have a bit of a competitive nature to them. (more…)
When I first started going out with this guy from my apartment building, I thought that it was just because we were both lonely. It turned out that we are perfectly compatible though, and it did not take us long to fall in love. He told me last week that he wanted to take me out for a super special night, so I wanted to look as good as possible. I had my hair done, I bought a new dress and even some shoes, and I also booked an appointment at a Holland nail salon.
I love shopping so buying the dress and shoes was fun, and I get my hair professionally done every couple of months. Neither of those things were out of the ordinary for me. However, I had never had my nails professionally done. I asked some of my friends who love getting manicures and pedicures, and Tulsa Day Spas seemed to be the winner of all the suggestions I got. (more…)
My dad made a lot of money in life thanks to buying a lot of feal estate. It has made him very wealthy. He’s always been good to me when it comes to money, but I want to earn my own way in life. He offered to give me a lot of money to buy many properties, but I told him if he wanted to loan me the money to buy a few places, I would be willing to do that instead. Since then. I have hired a part time cleaner in Singapore to help me with each of the properties I have purchased thanks to my dad’s loan. (more…)
I own 25 rental properties in Singapore that range from studio apartments to four bedroom houses. The income generated from these properties has afforded me a very comfortable lifestyle. There aren’t a whole lot of problems with my tenants as I perform background checks along with a rigorous screening process. Even with these safeguards in place, every once in a while I end up with a renter that has slipped through the cracks and I find myself with a huge mess when they move out. I have enlisted the help of a company that provides moving out cleaning in Singapore since I am sometimes too busy to take care of it on my own.
One good thing about using this company is that they know exactly what needs to be done and how I want the property to look when they are finished. (more…)
I sought out a manicure in Singapore to fix one of my daughter’s more amazing mistakes. While I was off at work, my daughter’s friend suggested she give my daughter a professional manicure so her hands could look like a movie star’s digits. Considering both of them are ten years old, you can imagine what the manicure looked like. I was mortified when I came home only to see my daughter’s mangled nails. She seemed proud of the work, which isn’t surprising considering she knows nothing about manicures. Ten year old me would’ve thought they looked amazing as well.
I quickly made an appointment at my usual place for nail work and took my daughter in to see what the professionals there could do for her. I have to say the people working at the shop took great amusement at seeing this manicure. (more…)
I was very unhappy with my appearance. I had been through a lot the last few years, and the stress of it all was extremely evident with just a quick glance at me. I had wrinkles where there were none just a short time ago, and I think the bags under my eyes had their own bags too. I looked pretty bad, but I knew that I did not have to stay that way. I had heard about a Singapore aesthetic clinic that does all kinds of procedures to help people feel better about themselves.
This clinic does not only aesthetic work but also medically necessary work as well. They can even do minor surgeries there as well as routine vaccinations and other medical procedures there. (more…)
After the first year of my business being open, I had to file taxes to report the earnings I made from it. I thought it would be easy to do my taxes online using the same website that I’ve used in the past, but things were different. Since I was filing with a business in mind, there were restrictions that weren’t there when I simply had a W2. The restrictions cut off certain features and wouldn’t allow me to file without paying extra money. I figured if I had to pay, I’d rather use business tax preparation software and get more for my money.
The solution to my tax problem came in the form of a website that had the software that I needed. It was fully featured for use as an individual or with a business. It even gave multiple users access, so I could use it, and so could my brother. (more…)
I have looked at some apartment complexes that have what seems to be a zillion floor plans. Some people may like having so many choices, but I am not one of them. I have a difficult time making my mind up on some things, so I was very happy when I saw that the Overlook at Crosstown Walk had just two types of one bedroom units and two types of two bedroom units. One might think that would make my decision even easier, especially since I live on my own, but that was not the case.
Yes, I even get on my own nerves with things like that, but I also laugh at myself too. I thought that I wanted a one bedroom unit since it is just me, but then I saw the prices that Overlook tenants pay for the two bedroom units, and I knew that I could easily afford those as well. (more…)
I inherited an automobile salvage yard from my grandfather. He was just interested in selling parts to do-it-yourself mechanics who fixed their own cars. However, there are not a lot of people doing that locally now, so we started selling on the Internet to keep the business viable. Then we started small with buying and selling scrap. When we started accepting lead-acid batteries, we installed a 40×40 5000 lb floor scale just to be able to weigh the truckloads that started coming in from local repair shops. We were closer to a lot of commercial truck repair centers than some other places, and we offered to pick the batteries up, weigh them and send the shops checks for their scrap.
We added more scales to weigh aluminum, and we had small scales installed in our offices to weigh precious metals. (more…)
