I Am Managing a Building

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

I have sort of become the building manager for the boss, although I am not really sure how and at first I did not really understand what it was that I am supposed to do. The most obvious thing is that you need to engage some person or company that does regular cleaning services in Singapore and it turned out that the reason I got this job was related to that. In essence the last guy was getting some sort of kick back from the people he gave the contract too. They were overcharging the boss and he found out, although it was not because he was smart or anything. (more…)


I Now Understand the Appeal of Manicures

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

Before, I could not see why someone would pay to have someone else trim their nails and paint them. I have seen some really fantastic nails when I have been out, but they also were attached to women who looked like they could be models. I am a single mom with two jobs, so having those kinds of nails was not on my radar. At work, we have all kinds of bonus incentives, and I received a certificate for a manicure service in Singapore as a random gift for outstanding customer service.

While I would have never paid for it myself, I decided to go ahead and take advantage of this. Just because I would never do it on my own did not mean I was not looking forward to this. It is just like cooking. (more…)


Always Get a Clean Place

Friday, November 24th, 2017

I became a home owner for the first time this year. Selecting the right home was a long process, but I feel that I’ve chosen the right one. My mother told me that before I move into the home, I should look at move in cleaning for Singapore. I wasn’t sure why she wanted me to do this, and she told me that she doesn’t trust how clean a place is before living in it. When she first moved into her home with my dad, she bought some cleaning supplies from the local store and scrubbed every surface and swept every floor.

My father thought my mother had gone crazy when he saw her cleaning everything. Over the years, she’s been a bit of a neat freak, even after my brothers and I were born. I’m more of a slob, and my mom would always get on me about cleaning my room. (more…)


I Had a Really Interesting Day

Monday, November 20th, 2017

I have sort of been loaned out this week. I did not know who the lady was at first, but I eventually figured out that her family is somehow involved in the ownership of the place where I work. Apparently they are involved in all sorts of other things as well. I picked her up at the airport about a week ago and took her to get a manicure and pedicure in Singapore. She had a massage while some other people arrived. It took a long time for me to figure out that they were accountants and other types of bean counters. They were obviously preparing for something. They held a meeting and then everyone got in their cars. (more…)


I Stopped by Useless Products and Got Help That Really Works

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

I have tried so many different over-the-counter creams and lotions, and none of them have helped to restore the glowing skin that I used to have. I never thought I would feel so self-conscious about the way that I look, but it happened quickly. Seeing an aesthetic doctor has helped to restore my self-esteem so that I feel good again. I wasted so much money on products that didn’t work over the years. Seeing a doctor for help is what truly worked.

I live in a country with a thriving beauty market. I see so many ads for different products that claim that they will do all sorts of amazing things for my skin. Unfortunately, I believed many of the things those ads said. (more…)
