Looking at different condo developments in Singapore was fun at first, but it got discouraging when I was not able to find what I wanted. I am not a super picky person for most things, but this was an exception. Where I live has to be just right for me, because it is not like I can pick up and move somewhere else when I find something better. It was not until I looked at the New Futura condo that I realized I had found the place that is perfect for me.
What made this condo development stand out more than anything else is the location. It is off of Orchid Road in District 9, which is a great location. Continue reading I Finally Have a New Home
I have been here for nearly two and a half months and I have been doing quite well at accomplishing the things that I came here to do. Most of all we are trying to get a piece of property ready for sale, so that we can help erect a skyscraper. We did not buy the property ourselves, but instead we collected it instead of the money that we were owed by a former business partner. Right now the ground floor is occupied by a really nice family restaurant a place that provides TCM in Singapore, which means Traditional Chinese Medicine. The guy does not want to move and we are not really looking to be jerks about it. The restaurant is not that big of a deal. Continue reading I Am Still in Singapore
Marketing is needed for any business. Without it, consumers will not know new products and new consumers cannot be targeted. I have paid good money in the past for various marketing campaigns, but I was never truly satisfied with them. Most were good, and a few were just an idea or two short of great. I decided to look into copywriting courses in Singapore to see if that was something I could swing into my schedule because I knew that I had ideas, but I did not have the knowledge on how to be a good copywriter.
I was able to find a course at Orita Sinclair that definitely fit my schedule. It was just four classes, and each one lasted for three hours. That might not seem like a lot of time to devote to something so important, but it was plenty. I was able to learn about the basics of brand awareness and identity, two things that are very important. I also learned how to make the copy fit around the targeted demographics I was trying to reach. Continue reading I Learned How to Write Copy
I had always felt like the odd one out in my family, mainly because of how my older sisters look. They have the most amazing skin ever. There are no blemishes, and their skin would not dare sag. I, on the other hand, have went through a lot of the growing pains that most kids do. I had acne, pimples, and even freckles in the warmer months. It was not until I became an adult that I decided to find the best aesthetic clinic in Singapore because I was tired of my skin issues.
At that point, the biggest one was just my sagging skin. My sisters are all older than me with my eldest sister being eight years old and the one closest to me in age is two years older. Continue reading My Sagging Skin is Gone
When my parents started their business over 30 years ago, their clientele was local to them. On the rare instance, someone would drive an hour or so to their store, but for the most part their customers could walk there. The internet did not exist then, and their competition was very minimal. Now that online shopping is the norm for so many people, I knew that my parents really had to invest in the digital side of their company. Simply put, they needed to hire a SEO service in Philippines to make sure people could find them on Google and other search engines.
They had a decent website, but they were still doing mostly walk-in transactions. Continue reading SEO Saved My Parents’ Company
I didn’t expect life to become harder as I grew older. I thought that I would grow older and smarter and easily learn how to handle everything more efficiently. Instead, I was struggling every single day. After taking time to think about what I needed to do to fix the issue, the first thing that I did was to take time to learn about house cleaning prices to see if I could afford to have someone come in to clean my place. I knew that I needed to free up time so that I could get other things done that I struggled with.
It turned out that life was easier when I was younger. I had fewer responsibilities and fewer people to look after. Continue reading I Had to Find Help So That I Could Spend Time Focusing on My Kids
I did a search for Orchard manicure after hearing a lot of good things about them. There are a lot of nail salons and spas in the city, but there are only a few that rate such high praise. I had never been there before, but I admit that I was really curious about what makes them stand out so much. Instead of going there in person and finding out, I just did a little bit of snooping online. I have found that is the best way to get information about a company because it is easy enough to weed out what is authentic and what is not.
I went to their social media pages, and I was really excited with all of the pictures that I saw there. I actually lost track of time because I was going through all of the different designs they were showing on two of their social media pages. Every time I found a design that I just had to have for my own nails, I would keep looking and find yet another one that was even better. Continue reading This Nail Salon is Superb
After putting up with a lot of corporate nonsense at a job that I worked at for years, I was ready for something else better in life. I wasn’t sure what the better choices in life would be at first. Then, a friend of mine surprised me by mentioning that she was going to be selling her cleaning company in Singapore because she was planning on retiring. I couldn’t believe the timing. I took some time to think about it, and then I called her one day to tell her that I was interested in purchasing the company if she could show me that the company was making a good profit.
I had never owned a company by myself before. I had always worked for other people and taken orders from them. Continue reading I Needed to Start a New Career That Would Make Me Happy
My husband begged me to allow him to take a new job that he wanted in another country. I wasn’t so sure about moving, but I said yes. It was the best decision that I’ve ever made. The first week here in my new country, I felt out of sorts at first. So he found a nice place where I could get a pedicure in Singapore because he knew how much I love to get my nails done. He felt that I should try doing some of the things that I love to do on a normal basis in my new surroundings so that it would help to acclimate me to the area. He is such a smart man.
I began doing little things each day to help myself become more comfortable. I normally walked for exercise every morning back home, so I decided to do that in my new city, too. I was a little disoriented at first and I even got lost during my first walk. However, by the end of the week, I was strutting around on my morning walks with confidence. Continue reading It Didn’t Take Me Long to Learn to Love My New City
I have recently been suffering from a pinched nerve and it is really, really bothersome. I have had some back and shoulder problems for years, but this particular problem is much more debilitating than other things that I have dealt with regards to the pain and my back. I am going to try to visit a Concord chiropractor in the near future, but I want to find one that is affordable. Of course, I do not know how much it usually costs to go to see one, so I am going to have to do a bit of research to know what to expect in terms of price, and to help me to pick one that is relatively affordable among the options that are available to me for chiropractors.
I am not sure exactly what is going on with my back. I have had a pinched nerve before, but it was in my shoulder, and it only caused me to lose feeling one of my fingers for a couple of years. I eventually regained feeling in that finger, and I am not sure what the reason is. I have been experiencing a lot different of a pinched nerve problem this time around though, and it is causing one of my legs to go completely numb at times, to the extent that I am unable to walk for awhile. It is a really scary situation and one that I am not sure what to do about. It is threatening my livelihood, as I am not really able to work if I am not able to walk. Currently, the spells where I cannot walk are not that often, and they do not last all that long. But that does not mean that they are not scary. In fact, they are really scary to me.
My husband and I went out to dinner one night together. After I slipped and fell in the restaurant, my back was just not the same. My husband urged me to see a Vancouver chiropractor after he came home one night and found me crying. He learned that I had taken the day off of work because I had been hurting so much, and I had to spend the day in bed. I knew that he was right about getting help because I knew that I would lose my job if I didn’t find a solution for the pain quickly. I only get 5 days of sick pay per year, and I only had one day left.
We don’t often get a chance to go out. We both work and have 2 children. It can be pretty expensive to raise two children in this world. So we typically do not have surplus money for nights out alone together. The night that we went out, we decided to splurge and we hired a babysitter. She watched our two young children while my husband and I went out to watch a movie and a nice restaurant afterward. Continue reading My Husband Pointed out That I Needed to Do Something About My Pain
Of course I am basically just getting a free trip to act as a flunky. My girlfriend and I know this guy who works for a big shot in the movie business. The guy is really rich and he loves to be the center of attention, so this is mostly about publicity. They have a film festival up there and right now we are living in the Aspen luxury home rentals that this guy got for his headquarters. By that I mean he rented two homes, the one we are staying in is a cabin theoretically. It does not look like a cabin to me, since that seems to indicate a place like you see on TV. They are supposed to be one room places barely big enough for a small family.. Continue reading We Are on the Way to Aspen
I found the place that I really like the Green Park apartments which is basically within a long morning walk from my new job. This is the website of the place if you really care, but in fact it is an obvious thing that I need at least one roommate. I have been thinking about the math and it would be great if I could find two of them. In fact that would be less than half of what it would cost me to get a single bedroom unit. That is a really big pile of money when I am making what I make and paying what I am paying on my car payments, car insurance and my other bills. Continue reading I Am Looking for Roommate
I knew that, in order to further my career, I needed to make the big move to the city where so many political things happen. I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly and easily, though. I applied for a job with a high ranking government official, and he picked me to be his assistant! He told me that his office would help me to move into one of the many Washington DC luxury apartments in the area, and that part of the high salary that I would be making would be more than enough money to pay for a luxury pad. After I got the phone call telling me that I got the job, I got us a phone and actually pinch myself. It almost seems too good to be true.
Most people seem to have a lot better luck in life than I do. I have to scratch and bite for everything good that happens to me. For other people, it seems to come so much easier for them. I’m not really sure why that is the case. Continue reading I Had to Do What I Could to Make Myself More Interesting
I started looking into apartments for rent in Miami Beach right away after my boss told me I got a big promotion that most of the people in the office have been chasing for months. When I say a big promotion, it really is a big promotion. My salary increased by double, and I get a lot of perks and much better benefits. But for me the promotion meant I could finally move out of my parents’ home and get my own place. I’d put it off for a long time because it’s expensive and I have student loans.
Now that the loans won’t be a problem, I could focus on finding a really nice place to live in the city. The excitement I felt about getting out of the basement and into my own apartment was profound as I started researching apartment units in the city. Continue reading Moving into Luxury Living in Florida
I was really happy when my parents told me they were going to move down here to North Carolina. My father has traveled extensively for his work, so they have moved every couple of years. That was nice in some ways as they really got to experience life in so many different ways, but it did not allow them to put down any roots either. When he told me he wants to retire, I was happy. When he said he wanted to look at apartments in South Charlotte, I was thrilled.
I was hoping they would come live closer to where I am, because I mainly only get to see them on video chat. Continue reading My Folks Are Moving Closer to Me
I really disliked smiling. Not because I was mean, but because I had bad teeth. My tooth enamel was spotty. It had some really white areas, and then it was almost transparent in others. This let the dingy color of the dentin show through. So, even though my oral hygiene was impeccable, my teeth looked dull and yellowish. I wanted to keep my teeth, but I wanted them to be shiny and white. I found a dentist who does porcelain veneers in Denver to fix my problem. This way I could keep my teeth and still get that nice bright white smile I was looking to have.
Getting my smile fixed was an investment in me. It was all the makeover I wanted or thought I needed. I was happy with my hair and clothes, and I had no issues with my weight. I just wanted a nice smile. I would see other people with teeth that looked perfect, and I was ashamed to smile around them. I had a real negative complex about my teeth. Continue reading How Porcelain Veneers in Denver Changed Me for the Better
I looked at so many different Kingsport apartments for rent that they were all starting to look alike to me. I already knew that Country Shores was the best one of the bunch, but I wanted to make sure that I was not overlooking any others that could compete. As it turned out, none could because Country Shores really does have it all. They have the most affordable rent of all the complexes I looked at and liked, which is huge. I also liked that they actually do pay some of the tenant utilities.
I don’t have to pay for trash removal, lawn care of snow removal, and they treat for pests on a regular basis. The last two places I lived also offered those services, but they included them in their price of the unit, which made the overall price go up. Continue reading Country Shores is Now My Home
I sort of lucked out on this, because I could not have afforded if my Dad’s boss had not decided to figure out how to make it into a tax write off. I am not sure how he did it or it it is really kosher, but that is his problem. He knows that I really want to become a Major League ball player some day and I have some scholarship offers now, the best one for Colorado State. At any rate he got me place at the Elite Performance baseball camp and there were a lot of professional ball players there. This place claims that they are working with hundreds of pro athletes. Continue reading I Got to Meet Some MLB Players
My brother had an opening in his company, and he gave my husband an offer that was just too good to refuse. My brother had been wanting my husband to join him for a couple of years, but he had been right in the middle of a huge work project that he didn’t want to abandon. Once it was over though, we talked about it and decided that this was the best move for our family. We stayed in my brother’s guest house so I could take my time looking at the Denver real estate market.
Though we had been to Denver numerous times in the past, I still did not want to jump right into a new home there. Continue reading Everything We Want in a Home
