I just got to Singapore this morning and I am staying at a nice hotel for the moment. I am probably going to be here for at least a couple of years, so I have to find a place to live and I have a couple of appointments to look at some places that have a new condo in Singapore. The truth is that this is a vertical city and that is because there is a very limited supply of real estate on which everything must be done. Getting from one side of the island to the other seems to be a real ordeal at many times of the day, so I am probably going to want to look at places that are as close as possible to the office tower where I am working. The most practical way to get around is obviously public transit, but you do not really want to rely on it to get you all the way from one side of the city to the other quickly. Some of the buildings here are actually set up so that you could spend weeks without leaving them. (continue reading…)
After working at a very popular spa for about seven years, I was ready to do something different. I was really proud of myself for getting certified in massage therapy before starting there, and I was also so grateful for getting hired by a business so quickly. But at some point, I realized that I could make more money if I worked on my own. So, I began looking up towel warmer reviews and other types of equipment reviews online to see what I could do about getting some of the things I needed for my own business.
I put together a list of the basic things that I would need to get. I know that some massage therapists will start out with little more than a massage table and oil, but I wanted to treat my clients right. I also wanted to keep them interested in coming back again and again. I knew that offering only the basics would interest some people, but people work hard and they want to be pampered during their free time.
I bought reflexology posters and had them framed in beautiful oak frames. I bought a really nice table for the clients to lay on. I bought piles of plush, white towels that could stand up to many washings. I also got an array of oils with different scents. Next, I had always wondered why the place I worked at did not warm the towels for our customers, and some of them even wondered why we didn’t either. So, I made sure to buy a really nice warming cabinet to put towels in. I had my first customer last week, and she let out a happy sigh when I laid the warmed towels on her. She has already made an appointment to come back two weeks from now!
Apartment hunting can have some fun aspects to it, but as most experienced shoppers know it can also be very tedious and frustrating. There are so many options out there that customers can be easily overwhelmed, especially if they have to try and search for all of them on their own. Instead of trying to do this all with no help, it is much smarter to accept the aid of a company that has the experience and knowledge to simplify the whole process. Specifically, finding apartments in Stockbridge GA has gone from being painful to downright easy and fun using this company.
Rather than having to drive to random locations and try to spot any problems, this company provides a wealth of information online that is easy to understand. All kinds of details are available ranging from information about the area to features available in the apartments. This means that you can process all of this information on your own time, at your own pace, and make sure that everything seems right to you before even really getting started. (continue reading…)
My best friend and I have been in Singapore for the last two years. I met her years ago in college, and we were surprised to learn that we ended up applying for and getting jobs at the same company after we graduated. This was great news to both of us, and three years later, we received even better news when we were asked to go to our company’s Singaporean location to work for a few years. That was thee years ago, and now we were being asked to stay on longer. We just rented some storage space at a nearby company for this very reason. Because we will be staying longer, we have purchased a lot of things and have run out of space in the small rental unit we have.
We both like to shop, and we have steadily purchased many beautiful things here that we planned to take back to our country with us. It would be great to store them in our own place now, but we really did not want to blow a lot of money on rent, so we are renting the smallest place we can. (continue reading…)
I have been trying to eat a lot healthier and trying to get a lot more exercise lately. Of course I am quite busy and so it is not very easy for me to work out as much as I should. I have been getting a lot more vegetables lately. A friend of mine from work showed me a web page which sells organic products in Singapore over the Internet and delivers them to your home. I am not really at home as much as I would like so I have them deliver it to my office some of the time. (continue reading…)
Trying to figure out everything that goes along with being a first time home owner is kind of a tall task, but it is one that I am ready to embrace, even if it is a bit frustrating at times. My wife and I are about to move into our first house, and I am looking for additional resources on the web to help me figure everything out, and know what to do. I am trying to make a check list of the things that I need to get done in association with moving into our new house. One of the things at the top of my list is to have electricity turned on the house, and that needs to be done rather promptly.
It would seem like a straightforward enough matter, except that in the state of Texas, there are a lot of energy companies to choose from. So I need to look around and see what the rates are like from different companies, so that I can compare them and such. (continue reading…)
I did not start out intending to building something quite this big, but I figured out that I could do this for not much more than what my original idea would have cost. I got this steel building kit second hand from a guy in the next county.Then I laid down a big concrete pad. Right now I have a sheet metal fabrication company building me a nice system of exhaust ducts. I had them all run through a heavily insulated false wall which creates a utility closet about 30 inches wide down the back wall of the building. All of the electrical and plumbing of the building runs through there. (continue reading…)
I just moved into an area where Comcast is king and so I am going to have to get them for my internet and for my television service as well. I am checking out Comcast services in this area, to try to find out a bit more about the pricing and what it is going to cost for me to get both utilities. Maybe I will be able to save a bit of money by getting them together, as opposed to getting the services from separate companies. I think that a lot of companies offer discounts like that these days, but I am not completely sure.
I am excited to get cable and such hooked up here, because I am trying to get everything set up with my new apartment. I had a lot of the furniture moved in recently and I am glad that is over with. I had to wait for about a week after I started moving in on order to get my furniture moved in. That is because I had to wait for my friends to be free to help me to move it.
My new apartment is on the sixth floor of this building, and there is no elevator. So as you can imagine, it was quite a pain to be able to get all of the furniture up to the sixth floor. It took four of us to get that part of the move done. But it is over with, and I think I am recovered from the physical exertion. It would be a good time to relax and watch some television, because I have the next few days off from work. I took off extra time from work to give me a chance to get settled into my new place and relax a bit.

I have a serious mess on my hands, because while I was at work yesterday, my kids made a disaster of the house. It is pretty unbelievable what they did, but the worst part is what happened to the rugs and carpets. They are seriously stained, and it is not pretty. I am not sure if carpet cleaning will be able to take care of the mess, but I want to look into carpet cleaning in Gold Coast in order to see what the prices are like. Regardless of the price, I am probably going to have to hire someone to try to clean up this mess.
It is a disaster, and I was hoping to sell the house in a few months. I really hope that I do not have to have the carpets replaced before I can sell the house, because it will seriously cut into whatever profit I am going to be able to make on selling the house. (continue reading…)
