How We Use Augmented Reality from a Motion Graphics Company in Singapore

by admin

One of the coolest thing we did was to use augmented reality in our product maintenance and training videos for consumers and professionals. We use a company that creates incredible motion graphic in Singapore to do this. The concept is really neat. You download an app, aim your device’s camera toward the product you want to learn to use, maintain or repair, and the augmented reality works within the app to present you our company mascot who will take it from there.

An example would be a product we make that needs a filter replaced on a regular basis. You register the product when you purchase it by using the app. The app communicates with the product, and it will tell you when the filter needs changed. To learn how to do it, you just load the app, and then aim your device’s camera at the product. Read the rest of this entry »

I Liked This Bus Charter Tour in Singapore Even Though I Really Shun Crowds

by admin

Traveling is always something I wanted to do, but have a really hard time doing. We can’t afford private tours of places we go to, and I am not one for crowds! You could read that last sentence with all capital letters for the word “not” for even more emphasis. I put up with the standard tourist system of things because my desire to see things and experience them overpowers my desire to shun the crowds. This was one of the things that had me nervous about our bus charter for touring Singapore last year when we visited the island nation.

I could not imagine riding around for hours in a big bus crowded with people. However, the bus we were on was super-comfortable and roomy. The climate was perfectly controlled. Read the rest of this entry »

Can You Trust the Reviews?

by admin

My friend told me that by going on reviews online, she went and bought a new car. I was always taught that you were going to have to do a lot of questioning when you read things online since you have to know the integrity of the material. My friend told me to go online and look for honest Idealshape reviews as there were a lot of people who like to post their reviews online. I knew that it was going to be easy for me to find people that did like the program as every where I was going lately, people were talking about it. I did not realize that so many of my friends who were looking really slim were all on the plan, it was one of the strangest things. I figured if I had friends that were losing weight and they all seemed happy that it might be a good option for me.

My husband and I do not eat the same food, he likes to eat meat and I do not eat any meat. I love to eat fruits and vegetables so I usually end up making a totally different dinner than he does. He cooks one meal and I will cook another, but I usually end up cooking both meals because he likes to work on the car in the garage and I usually do not have a lot to do. I want him to be happy, but I am not going to make a meal for him that has fish in it. I cannot stand the smell and I think it would be gross if it got stuck in our house for a few days. I am not looking forward to the day when he makes fish in the house, I dread the smell.

I Am Moving in with Lynn

by admin

Of course this has been coming on for a good time, we have been dating since I was a senior in college and she was a junior. That has been close to three years now, both of us have jobs and we have plans which do not involved living apart any longer. Right now I am deciding what to keep and what to get rid of, since Lynn has her own stuff and there is a limit to how much room her place has. After that I need to arrange for post tenancy cleaning in Singapore so that I can try to retrieve the security deposit from the landlord. That is not going to be an easy matter. She is a very unpleasant lady with a drinking problem and everyone knows quite well that you have to use a pry bar if you want to get her to return that security deposit.

Using an App for Income

by admin

There are a lot of people that have started companies that just work with social media. For the past twenty or so years, the internet has allowed a lot of people to make money. Not only are they making money, they are creative enough to figure out that doing things like buy instagram followers can make them a lot of money. Using different apps that have many people following a person or a company online can allow a lot of exposure to people who like those accounts, or those who see people like their account. Almost all of the social media apps allow people to see their friend’s activities so that they could also follow or see what they are liking online. It takes a really smart and creative person to look at the internet and come up with ways how these actions and trends could actually help them generate an income.

It can be hard enough to figure out how to use an app. Read the rest of this entry »

My Parents Have a New Security System

by admin

I was beyond happy when my parents started looking at real estate the last time they came down to visit me here in Tucson. I had been living here nearly ten years, and I cannot see myself living anywhere else. The only negative to it was that my parents were nearly a thousand miles away. They did come to visit often, and then they ended up moving here about a year after Dad retired. The house they bought is only a few miles from me, so we see each other nearly every day now.

When they bought their house, the one thing that my husband suggested was that they invest in a home security system. We have ADT at our house, and we have never had a problem with it. Read the rest of this entry »

Using Professional Tutors to Get Ahead in Physics

by admin

At first we thought our son was just being stubborn when it come to his grades in one class. It took some time for us to get him to open up about what was really going on. It turns out that he was embarrassed that he was not grasping all the things in his physics class. He felt that it was a manly subject and that he should excel at it. He was getting so frustrated that he was getting angry and withdrawn. We immediately got him involved with a professional physics tuition centre that could help him improve his grade dramatically.

A Mystery at the Parking Lot

by admin

A few months ago I was able to buy a piece pf property for a cheap price. I bought the property to open my own costume shop with handmade costumes assembled by my family and me. While the building was in good condition with a few minor things that needed fixing, there was one huge problem that couldn’t be overlooked, and that was the parking lot. The lot had cracks and uneven concrete everywhere. There was a rumor that the previous owner went crazy and used a jackhammer on it. I needed paving in Nassau County NY before opening the shop, or my customers would have no place to park while they shopped.

I looked on the Internet for any company that could do paving jobs and found a fairly popular one. Read the rest of this entry »

We Hired Housekeepers to Free Up Time for Other Things

by admin

My wife and I took on some extra work at our jobs. It put a strain on our schedule for getting other things done during our time off. We needed to still be able to visit her parents and see our friends, but we also needed to do our household chores and manage all the other aspects of daily living. We hired a part time cleaner in Singapore to clean our condo. This was an efficient use of resources. The hours of working earned us more than it cost us to hire the person to clean our condo. The time savings allowed us to get more things done and still have some time for rest and relaxing entertainment. Without the ability to relax and refresh, then a job can become too tedious. We did not want to get burned out at our jobs. Making more money to save is great, but you want to enjoy your life too.

I think that our professional cleaner does a much better job than we did even when we had more time. Read the rest of this entry »

Visiting My Parents and Their New Place is Giving Me a New Start

by admin

After my divorce earlier this, I felt really lonely. My parents have been living in another country for the last 5 years, so I didn’t have family to spend time with at first. They moved overseas to purchase a Singapore New Futura Condominium, and they often emailed me photos and emails about their new life so far from me. I lived on my own for awhile, but I really missed them. Being single meant that I no longer needed to answer to someone else, so my dad told me that he was sending me an airplane ticket so that I could visit him and my mother.

My ex-husband was always very controlling. He always wanted a say in everything that I did. I had once planned to go to Europe with some friends of mine, and he came up with every excuse in the book as to why I should not go. He told me that we could not afford it and did his best to be negative about it. I decided not to go because I was tired of listening to him. After he was out of the picture, I was free to go where I wanted. Read the rest of this entry »

Extra Tutoring Help is Getting Me Through My Hardest Class

by admin

Physics has never been a class that I have had an easy time with, but I know that I must pass the required classes in college in order to continue on to graduate with my chosen degree. I’m taking my second year of physics, and I had such a hard time with the first year as it was. I was looking online for help when I learned about Singapore physics tutors. I asked my parents if it was something that I could do, and both of them agreed that I should enroll myself. They were both pretty happy that I was being proactive about trying to get help, so I joined and really enjoy it.

I can’t wait until I graduate. I’ve never loved going to school in general. However, I have been working ever since I was in high school, and I have always enjoyed working. You can get up and move around and do all sorts of things in the workplace. Read the rest of this entry »

I Was Always So Tired

by admin

If anyone would have told me that I would feel infinitely better from going to a local home show in the area, I would have laughed. Looking at landscaping options or how to remodel my bathroom on a shoestring budget might be interesting, but it could hardly help my body from hurting so much. Well, that is exactly what happened, in a roundabout way. I had no idea that a Santa Maria chiropractor would be there. I did stop at his booth because I had heard that chiropractic care can help a number of people with different issues, so I was curious what his take on my issues would be.

I have suffered from headaches for years, which was the main culprit. There were some things that were related to my headaches though. I was constantly tired because I just did not get a lot of good sleep. Read the rest of this entry »

I Had a Wrinkle Reduction Procedure

by admin

I am not the type of person to go to great lengths to cover up my aging. I have earned every wrinkle that I have, and I was not ashamed of them. However, a really good friend of mine did not feel the same way. She was 60 years old, and she looked 60 years old. She wanted to retain her youthful looks a bit more, and she ended up going to a aesthetic clinic in Singapore to have wrinkle reduction procedures done. I tried to actually talk her out of it because I just was not sure how natural she was going to look afterwards.

I have another friend who had some plastic surgery done, and her face looks unnatural because of how tight the skin is stretched now. I did not want my other friend to have this same look about her. Read the rest of this entry »

Three Tablets for My Kids

by admin

I am so looking forward to November 27th of this year. I know a lot of people probably look forward to the end of November because of Thanksgiving but for me, it is an entirely different reason. November has almost meant Black Friday to me up until last year, which is when I learned all of the amazing benefits of Cyber Monday. That is why this year, I am so looking forward to the Cyber Monday tablet deals for 2017 since that is what I am getting for my three children for their big Christmas gift this year.

I don’t really know much about tablets, but the kids have given me their wish lists a few weeks ago. Since they told me which ones they want, all I have to do is find the best deal for each one. I also wanted to make sure that the tablets they wanted were going to be good enough to do everything they want on them. Take my older son for example. He loves to play all kinds of games, so I had to make sure that the tablet I get him will support that. Read the rest of this entry »

A Great Place to Live in Florida

by admin

My search for apartments in Brandon Florida started nearly three months before I had to actually move. I wanted to give myself plenty of time to find the right apartment because of what had happened to my sister. She and her new husband waited until a month before they were married to start looking for a nice apartment, and they simply could not find one that they wanted. As a result, they had to settle for living in an apartment that they actually hated. I did not want that for me, so I started my search months in advance.

As it turned out, I didn’t need that long. I didn’t even need an hour, because I found out that location really does matter. Read the rest of this entry »

I Need to Find a New Roommate

by admin

I have been looking for a new place to stay and really it has not really gone so well to this point honestly. I found this place that I absolutely loved for a bunch of reasons, but there is no way that I can afford to live there unless I find a roommate. It is part of these really nice luxury apartments in Lewisville TX and the location is almost ideal for me. It would be a good walk to the office, a bit longer than I would like. However you could cut through this park on a bike and be there in about ten minutes. That would probably be fine in the morning, but it probably gets too hot to be riding home around here.

There Isn’t a Thing I Don’t Like Here

by admin

I looked at several different places to live before I finally settled on the South Tryon apartments in Charlotte NC. Actually, settling is not the right way to put it because I love everything about my new home. I just wanted to make sure I was not passing up a better place or a better deal in the same area, but after looking at quite a few I knew this was the best. There are so many reasons why it is the best place to live too. The first is because of the location. It is not that far from downtown Charlotte, which is where I work.

It is also close to places I like to hang out in the city, so that makes it even more convenient for me. Read the rest of this entry »

My Son Asked to Move in with Me

by admin

The last thing I expected to be doing just months ago was finding a place for my son and I to move into. He lived with his mom up until we started searching for apartments in North San Antonio and found a really nice one. Our arrangement was working out great for us, but then his mom accepted her boyfriend’s proposal. My son and her now fiance do not get along too well because they are just different types of people, but I am really hoping that changes as the days move forward.

That is not to say I was not thrilled when he asked if he could move in with me. I only had a one bedroom apartment at the time, and there was just no way we could have made that work on a permanent basis. I was near the end of my annual lease, and I was just grateful that I had not yet signed up for another year. That gave the two of us time to look for a place where we would both be happy.

A Man’s Paradise in Florida

by admin

I found a great little apartment not long ago. I wanted something nice, but I was not looking for something that was all shiny and brand new. I have been in some friends’ apartments that were recently built, and I felt like I was in a gilded cage with a couple of them. That is why I wanted a nice but no so traditional place when I looked at apartments in Temple Terrace FL. Living here in Florida, I knew that I would be able to find something that I liked since there seems to be a little bit of everything here.

As soon as I started looking at The Lodge at Hidden River, I knew that I found my home. It is new and modern, but it looks rustic, which is a look that I really enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »

I Am Staying in Dallas for a Week

by admin

It is sort of funny honestly, because it was a really big pain to get in touch with my friend Lonnie to get him to lend me his place for a week. He has a really nice place, luxury apartments in north Dallas TX and the guy is only there about half of the time. When I found him he was in Heidelberg Germany, which I do not know how to spell. At any rate he told me that his mother had an extra key and that she would meet me there. When I got there it was not his mother there. Instead she sent her niece who brought along two other girls. They were in the bar when I got there, drinking shots of tequila and listening. Read the rest of this entry »
