Hats off to the Developers

18 Nov

I’m a man that likes to wear hats. From simple caps to fancy hats, I’ve worn them all. Usually when I buy a hat, I have to measure my head to make sure that the hat will fit me. I do this with a tape measure, and it’s simple enough, but I know not everyone has this, and they don’t always remember the measurement. I contacted a team that does mobile application development in Singapore, because I wanted to have an app made that would help people measure their heads for use with buying hats.

I Feel Really Good Now

16 Nov

When I moved to Singapore, I knew that the culture was going to be quite different than what I was used to in Canada, which is where I was born and raised. I had a great opportunity in Singapore though, and I knew I was going to invest the next several years of my life there. I found a condo quickly, and then I started the process of finding other things like stores to shop at and transportation needs. A new friend suggested that I find a Singapore TCM clinic as well.

I have to be honest, I had no idea what he was talking about when he told me that. When he explained that it is Traditional Chinese Medicine, it really did not do much to explain it further. In Canada, I went to a primary doctor whenever I was ill or needed a regular checkup. Read the rest of this entry »

On the Road with the Church

15 Nov

My love for traveling began at an early are. I had always been curious about other places outside of my home state. At the time, I did not have a passport and could not travel overseas. I did not care where I went, I just liked to get out of the house every once in a while. My prayers were answered when my aunt invited my mom and brothers to join her on a trip to Tennessee. The church was taking a bus charter service to Ruby Falls. I was so excited about the trip because I had never been out of my state. I new this would be a big adventure for us.

The trip that we took was for only one day. We would return later that evening. We arrived at the church early one Saturday morning. Read the rest of this entry »

Cut the Traditional Cord from Cable

02 Aug

I know I am not the first to want to cut the cord when it comes to your regular cable company. They always talk about new programming they are going to have and they either never have it or it is such a price upgrade that it is not worth it. Yes, I know I could find some free stuff online, but I am skeptical about it because you never really know how reliable they will be when you are ready to watch your favorite television show. The website www.cablehdtvs.com was one of the first ones I saw when I started my adventure online to find a cable television alternative. I am a picky person, I know what I like and I definitely know what I don’t like. I also can spot a scam a mile away so I was always skeptical about things that are too good to be true. I want a good price on equipment that can easily be used with my television setup in both rooms. Read the rest of this entry »

How to Be the Perfect Tenant when You Are Leaving

12 Apr

No one wants to move into a dirty apartment or condo. I have moved a few times over the years going back to the time I was a kid moving with my parents. I remember Mom spending days cleaning a new place before we would move in. This is why any time I move out of a place I call a company that does moving out cleaning for Singapore to come and clean my place for the next tenant. It gets me my security deposit back, and it is just the right thing to do. I do it because my version of clean might not be the next person’s version of what clean is. Read the rest of this entry »

I Learned So Much from This Man

11 Apr

I signed up with Physics tuition long after I quit my job. I enjoy my retirement, but wished to get back into studying topics I loved in college but never had the time to learn more about due to my demanding job in the financial sector. I recall with great fondness my love for science, especially Physics. I had some great instructors who could really teach the topic. I think that matters almost as much as just having a natural affinity for the topic. I wanted to learn more about the topic, but just reading through text books didn’t seem to make a lot of sense.

I wanted to find a great instructor who could really light the fire. At my age, that meant finding a tutor who was willing to teach to an old man. Read the rest of this entry »

We Hire a Cleaning Company After the Twins Came Along

04 Feb

Our free time slowly diminished as life progressed. We worked extra hours to pay off our mortgage faster. Then, when the twins came along, free time evaporated on the day my wife delivered them. She had to take on a ton of extra work the same day she got home from the hospital. I did too. She had some time off from work, but her days were filled taking care of the kids. I called about regular cleaning services in Singapore to take away those extra chores from her long list of things needing done. I took up the slack as much as I could while still working 12 hours a day. Read the rest of this entry »

Our Son Needed Tutored in Physics

15 Jan

When my husband suggested that we find a physics tutor for our son, I was not sure that was the right answer. He did need some help but I did not think that he was so far behind that he needed specialized one on one help. My husband told me that we did not have to get a private tutor for him though. He explained that there are tutors that teach a small group, and I did agree that might be a better fit for him. He told me about the jc physics tuition, and I went online to get more information on it.

While my husband would have the final say in it, he always respects my opinion, knowing that I will only choose something that is beneficial for our family. I looked into several different group tutoring options, and the one at Bukit Timah does seem like the best one of the group. Read the rest of this entry »

The Tedious Labor is No Longer My Burden

27 Nov

Cleaning has never been one of my favorite things. I’ll always dread having to take out the cleaning supplies every week and go over the home. It’s just so tedious to do and I never really have the energy to do it. One of my friends came up the idea of hiring someone to do the job for me. I thought it would be kind of lazy to have someone else do something that I should be doing on my own, but it did seem like a good idea. The regular cleaning services in Singapore could easily clean my home in less time than it usually takes me.

I decided to follow through my friend’s idea and hire a cleaning service. Read the rest of this entry »

Needed Some Help Around the House

27 Nov

I needed a part time cleaner in Singapore to help around the house. I recently went to the doctor and found out that I needed a surgery that would have me laid up around the home for a couple of months. Keeping up the chores would be next to impossible, but obviously I couldn’t just let everything go. A friend offered to come over and help with meals, which I greatly appreciated, but I wasn’t going to ask her to pick up. I thought that would be a bit too much. Therefore I looked online for a part time cleaner.

I found a lot of good companies, but I also found a lot of bad reviews. Many companies will quickly accept the job, it seems, but then fail to deliver once they actually arrive to clean your home. Read the rest of this entry »

A New Nail Salon for Me

26 Nov

I was looking for a Holland nail salon. I had recently moved into the area, and finding a salon to do my nails was actually at the top of my life, even before finding a new doctor and dentist. I was not due to have a checkup with either of those for several months, but it is rare when I go more than two weeks without a manicure. I have to look very professional with my job, and having manicured nails is just one way to ensure that I look as good as I possibly can every day.

Even beyond my job, I like looking my very best. I used to do my nails on my own, but I was hooked on professional manicures as soon as I had my first one. They have the proper tools to make sure my nails are healthy and in great shape. It is more than just clipping a nail. Read the rest of this entry »

I Have to Get Back to Doing Nice Things for Myself

17 Nov

The past year has been so tough for me. I found out that my daughter-in-law, who did the books for my company was taking money out of the business accounts for herself. I feel like I have been through so much. Now that the situation is somewhat behind me, I wanted to find a Holland nail salon for a little bit of pampering. I have not taken care of myself over the past year, and I really felt that I needed to do something about it for my mental health.

I love going to different places to get pampered. I particularly like nail salons where other spa-like services are offered. That said, getting a manicure and a pedicure by themselves is nice. Read the rest of this entry »

My Dog Tripped Me While Walking

09 Nov

I was walking my dog a few months ago when I had what I thought was a minor mishap. My dog got her leash wrapped around my feet when a stray dog walked by us, and I ended up falling. I thought the worst thing that had happened was my pride was a bit damaged since there were some neighbors out who witnessed it. It turns out that it was not the worst thing though. I actually ended up having to see a chiropractor in Camas because my back started hurting pretty bad a few days later.

Of course I was sore, because it was a pretty hard fall that I took right on the pavement. I knew that I was going to be sore for a few days, but the majority of the pain was spread out. It was not singled on one part of my body. That did not happen until a few days later. I woke up in a lot of pain, and I knew there was no way I was going to get through the day without seeing a medical professional about it. Read the rest of this entry »

Beginning a New Chapter in My New Apartment

11 Jul

I’ve had a lot of people told me that moving can be a stressful experience. I must say that I just don’t get it. Whenever I think about moving, I get excited because it means starting a new adventure. I like being able to search for apartments online and dream about what life will be like in a new home. Whenever I see something on a website that tells me to click here to unlock my new home, it’s a thrilling moment for me.

You have to keep a positive mind and think about everything that you have ahead of you. When my roommate told me he was moving out, at first I was sad, but then I realized that this was an opportunity for the both of us to experience new things. He was definitely moving on to bigger and better things, and I was going to get to search for a new apartment. It was a win for both of us. Read the rest of this entry »

Our First Home Closed Today

08 Jul

I was so excited last night that I hardly slept, we closed on our first house today and we are so excited. I kept on thinking that I was not going to find a home that was going to be a place where I wanted to retire. I already raised my children and they are in college so I went down to a Realtor after I did a click here online to get her information. I found out the address of where she was located and thought that she would be the person that would be able to help me find a home. I was looking for someone to help me sell my home and also help me find a home. Read the rest of this entry »

Moving to San Antonio Was a Scary Move for Our Family of Four

05 Jul

We have two kids and were moving across the country to live in an apartment in Texas. It was a scary time to say the least. We were giving up a home in the state were my wife and I grew up, taking the kids away from their school and friends, and starting all over in a state that several of our home states could fit in. The thing that made it easier was finding a great apartment to live in. You can click here to see pictures and floorplans at their website. We got a really nice three-bedroom apartment in San Antonio, Texas that even has a study and a patio.

Off from the kitchen is a laundry room for a washer and dryer. That is an amenity that is fantastic for apartment dwellers. Read the rest of this entry »

I Just Got Down to Greenville

03 Jul

I have been really happy with my new job and I guess that they like me enough to give me a pretty nice raise, but the only problem is that they want me to relocate down to Greenville, SC. I have been working on the move for about a week, I have already found a pretty nice apartment in Simpsonville SC that is quite close to the new location. In fact the new place where I am going to work does not quite exist just yet. Right now it is a pile of construction equipment and a concrete pad where they are about to put up the building. It is going to be about three weeks before they finish it, so I am going to be working out of my car for a little while. Read the rest of this entry »

I Met a Girl Today

02 Jul

I spent this morning out on Tampa Bay, this friend of mine took me out on his Bayliner and we went to this place. He tried to swear me to secrecy, because he thinks that this place is a big secret. Of course a lot of other anglers were out there on their boats. He picked me up at the marina, but when we finished we went over to his place. He has an apartment at this place called the Lodge at Hidden River and they have a place for him to keep his boat.. If you click here you can check out the web page and see why I was thinking about talking to the manager about a vacancy. The pool is really nice, or really it has a really nice patio around it and you would be hard pressed not to stare at some of the girls who were laying beside the pool in the sun. We went there to see these two girls, which was a surprise to me.

It was not a double date exactly, but it was obvious that he and his girlfriend were trying to set me up with the other girl. I got the idea real quick, she was in the middle of a really messy divorce and they thought that I was the cure for her malaise. I certainly was not opposed to the idea, but obviously they were trying to be subtle about it and I did not really act like a pouncing predator. It did not seem like the thing to do. I was really surprised when she took the filet knife and cleaned the fish that we had caught. We had about twice as much as we needed and Jake gave some of them away. He said he had plenty in his freezer.

I Got a Place Near the Fire Station

02 Jul

I am pretty happy right now. I am working at Fire Station 37, they let me drive the big trucks and I have a good job. This guy I work with and I are sharing a place within walking distance of the station straight down Vance Johnson. It is a pretty nice place, with a little fireplace and all of the amenities. This is the website if you care. I love the fact that they have a couple of nice swimming pools and of course it is a really good idea to be within walking distance of the bar that you are drinking at. Read the rest of this entry »

Learning to Play the SEO Game

23 Jun

There’s more to having a website than just making it. I learned this the hard way when I made my first one without the help of Algorhythm SEO. I made the website to host some games that I made for sale. They were small games that you could probably finish in a day or two, but I felt they would be a hit with customers at the right price point. I didn’t have any devkits for consoles, and I wasn’t on any PC store fronts, so this had to do. I was barely getting any game sales because no one knew that my website existed.

I tried to get the word out about my website as much as I could. I told my friends about and told them to tell their friends about it. I sent emails to gaming publications, hoping that one of them would try to review my games. None of these worked and I was stumped. Read the rest of this entry »
