I met this girl a couple of days ago and she was really cute and I was really trying to get her phone number about as hard as I could. At any rate she was telling me that she was an aesthitician and I really did not know what that meant, but it amounts to someone who helps you with your skin from looking at the internet. Of course a dermatologist is a skin doctor, but in this case she is really operating a co2 laser in Singapore and using it for cosmetic work on specific parts of the body. It seems pretty obvious that you can not do this to make a person actually lose weight, but they seem to leave that impression at times when you see them advertise these sorts of services. That is clearly not practical, but they do seem to claim that it can make you appear to be slimmer. Continue reading
My air conditioner is a lifeline for me in the summer months here in New York City. Even when the temperature is in the 70s, I like to turn it on because my house can become quite stuffy. When the temperatures are in the 80s or 90s, it becomes an absolute necessity. Well, I had to contact a company that does AC repair in NYC last month because my air conditioner was running but not putting out any cold air. I was thankful that the compressor was running, which indicated to me that there might just be a problem with the refrigerant level or even a leak. Continue reading
When you own a building, there are different kinds of inspections. One of them is to ensure that the building is up to date on all fire codes, and there are quite a few of them. There are local codes as well as federal codes, and this is not something that is taken lightly by anyone. It is essential to have the fire protection equipment in proper working order because of the consequences if it is not. That is why I looked into fire equipment testing in California, because I wanted to make sure that everything was in proper working order.
I did this in part because of the upcoming inspection that I knew was coming, but I also did it because I wanted to make sure everything was as it should be. The reason I chose Champion Fire Protection is because of the care that they take in making sure everything is up to date, as well as the expertise in fixing something should it not be.

I knew that we had to find a company secretary for Singapore businesses before we actually started our company. Though we were not planning on doing this for another few months, I still wanted to have everything ready for that magical day when our company would be legally established and open for business. There are many companies that will provide this service to people like me, who want to start their own company. There are rules and regulations that must be followed though, and this is one of them. Any company that is getting established must first have a company secretary within the first six months of being open. Continue reading
My best friend in high school got accepted into Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and throughout our college years, I would visit her on every school break and spent the summer before my senior year in Dallas with her.
It was so difficult to leave and come back to Ohio after each visit that upon college graduation, my best friend invited me to share a place with her while I did some job hunting in the area. First order of business was to check out some Dallas Uptown apartments as my friend’s current apartment was just too small for the two of us to live for any length of time and my back could only take so much sleeping on the battered futon in the middle of her living room. Continue reading
When I first started looking at Hattiesburg apartments, I was just going to get a one bedroom unit. That was until I started looking at the two bedroom units that Breckenridge Park apartments offer. They are not much more money per month, and they are definitely nicer than the one bedroom units. I do bring my work home with me a lot, but I usually just have the kitchen table set up as my home office. I knew that if I had a two bedroom unit, I would be able to have a dedicated office just for those times.
That did excite me, because I knew that I would be able to bring my work home with me a lot more. The main reason I didn’t before is because I would get distracted a lot. Continue reading
When I decided to surprise my wife on our tenth anniversary, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. We did not have a lot of money when we first fell in love, so our wedding was very low key. We did not have a honeymoon, but we were absolutely okay with that. Our finances have changed greatly since then, and I wanted to finally give her the special day that she didn’t have back then. I arranged for a Toronto limo company to send their finest stretch limo to our house on the morning of our anniversary.
The driver had an envelope for my wife, and he handed it to her after she answered his knock. I wish I could have seen that smile that I knew she must have had as she read the note. She had instructions to get in the limo, where she was greeted by her sister, who had been her maid of honor. Continue reading
The Gaig family started a restaurant in Singapore. If you like Catalan food, this is the place to try. When I visited, I would say it is the best Spanish food restaurant in Singapore. The chef is Eduard Castellarnau. The restaurant might be in the Asian country of Singapore, but the roots are firmly in Spain with the Gaig family at the helm. It was started by chef Carles Gaig, and now it is managed by his daughter, Nuria Gibert. I really enjoy Spanish cuisine, and this restaurant in the area of Dempsey Hill really struck my fancy.
They are open from Noon to three and then six to eleven daily. They only have High Tea between three and five. Continue reading
Apartments aren’t the red headed step children they used to be in the past. While the old style box apartments are fading out of view the new luxury apartments are taking their place at a rapid pace. Luxury apartments were often few and far between with a hefty rental fee as well but the new norm in apartment living has changed all that with new affordable luxury apartments that offer so much more. If you are looking for luxury apartments in Denver or any other city it’s as easy as going for a short drive because property managers have gotten smart and given the people what they want at a decent price.
More and more Americans are opting out of the housing market not by choice but by the demand of overpriced housing coupled with mortgage lenders who are extremely picky when it comes to who gets a mortgage these days. There has also been a shift in thinking from home ownership towards renting. Continue reading
When I was clearing out my aunt’s attic, I honestly did not know what to expect. She lived a rather unique lifestyle, so it was exciting even though it was sad at the same time. She had talked to my brother and me about going through her things, and she ordered us to do it with happy faces. She also told us that we might want to find a company that can transcribe audio to text, but she refused to say anything more on it. We both knew better than to push her for more information, so we just enjoyed the time we had left with her.
We decided to get started on her attic a few weeks after her funeral. Though it was sad like I said, we were both curious as to why she told us we should find a transcription service. It did not take long for us to find out why. We discovered several shoe boxes, and each one had at least three or four audio tapes in it. Continue reading
When I moved to Los Angeles, I knew that football season was going to be rough for me. I had moved from Baltimore, which meant that I would not get to see many Ravens games unless they were playing in prime time. I did a search for Time Warner Cable near LA after I got settled in since that was the cable company serving my area. It was during this search that I found out about Directv and their exclusive football package.
I had looked at the Raven’s schedule, and I would only be able to watch four of their games. However, if I went with Directv, I would be able to watch every single game, including preseason. I compared a few other things like price and channel lineups, but I already knew that I was getting Directv no matter what it cost. The good thing is that it was actually less for me to get Directv than it would have cost me to get Time Warner. I also got some really nice deals thrown into my package, in addition to the NFL Sunday Ticket, which was the ultimate for me. Continue reading
