I blogged a couple of days ago about my MRT ride experience. I mentioned there that there are lots of people in the MRT and since it was really jam packed, you can easily hear what they are talking about. Some talked about their Christmas plans while others talk about their upcoming exams while another group I heard were talking about great wittner metal tailpiece ¼ which I have no idea what it is about. Lol! I searched about it though in the internet and found out that it’s a part of the violin. Anyway, the MRT ride was really tiring but can also be entertaining if you look at it on the bright side. I wonder when will my next MRT ride will be. J
When you are looking to develop an app, it may pay to go with a team that works with one of the big names in the computer business. The SolutionStream dot net software development team is one of many choices when it comes to companies that offer help with development of software based on Microsoft’s dot net developer. How should you choose with whom you should work?
The first thing that you need to look at is your budget. You know that your company’s bottom line is the most important thing to look at when you are deciding to invest in new technology. You shouldn’t have to forgo getting an app or having a website developed, but you should also know what the maximum is that you are willing to put into developing your electronic assets. However, when you are looking at a company’s pricing schedule you should never commit your entire budget right away. You will want to save about 10% of it in case something goes wrong.
Finding a company that has experience in developing dot net software applications is important because they may already have the source code to do what you are looking for. This means that they do not have to build everything from the ground up but can cut and paste code. This speeds up the process tremendously while still giving you the options that you want for customization. Experience also offers the company the knowledge about how long something should take, and that results in a better estimate of how much the app is going to cost.
Every partner that works with Microsoft like the SolutionStream dot net software development team receives a Microsoft rating. This something that you can use to help guarantee your satisfaction with the product that will emerge. Microsoft knows that it is extremely important to maintain its reputation or risk losing market share to Apple or an up-and-coming business. These ratings give Microsoft some control over the quality of what is being developed using their software. That will help you get into the app market securely and with success.
This is just the first week of December and I have a busy schedule. I have a schedule for all weekends already, oh except Dec 28-29 though we are thinking of going out of town on those days but we haven’t booked anywhere yet, and my weekdays are full as well.
I’ll be on 5 days mandatory leave starting Dec 12 and on those days, how I wish I can just rest but I’ll grab the time to have my me time, to hunt a school for Hannah, and to start Christmas shopping (yes I haven’t started yet, talk about cramming!)
Anyway, I really hope I’ll be able to accomplish a lot on my mandatory leave and I also hope I’ll be able to finish my Christmas shopping soon! Wish me luck on my busy December schedule
I remember when I was working with my previous employer, during this time of the year, we are not so busy with work anymore since most of the targets have been accomplished already and what we’re busy at is Christmas parties, company giveaways, office gatherings and so on. I remember arriving in the office with gifts on my table already. Some give umbrellas, others wine, and others give usb promotional items which I think is cool since you get to advertise your company where you know the item you gave will really be useful. Nice idea right?!
Last Sunday, we had our first Christmas party for the year. It was with my online turned real life friends which we held at Jollibee Pioneer. We downgraded our party and decided to just use our funds to donate to Typhoon Yolanda victims. I’m really glad I became part of this group for we not only talk about girl stuff or other parenting stuff but we also encourage each other to become better persons and at the same time care and help others in times of need.
The kids also had their share in the fundraising for the Yolanda victims. Instead of having their exchange gifts, we decided to ask them if they are willing to donate some of their toys to the victims in which they gladly did. Good job kids!
Anyway, as mentioned earlier, the party was simple but very meaningful. It was the first time we donated as a group and the kids also get to spend time and bond with their friends.
Our family friend who has a furniture business has been looking for ways to advertise his furniture. Some of my officemates and friends who just bought a house or is building a house are asking how his furniture looks like. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have online catalog so he cannot show it to them and just asks them to visit the shop or the malls where his furniture are displayed. I suggested that he should at least have a catalog so people can see the designs of his furniture. I saw zooprinting.com for cheap catalog printing and told him to consider it. Who knows it will really help increase his market share.
While there are millions of bridal gowns to be purchased around the world, it can be extremely difficult to find the perfect one for you. Really, a bride should never settle for her gown. It should represent everything about her. It should be perfect. That’s why it’s necessary more often than not to create one yourself or purchase one and then make adjustments to it. Regardless of which you choose, you’ll have to learn how to work with bridal lace. Luckily there are a few tips that can help you out.
How to Dye It
These days, colored wedding dresses are becoming more and more common. Ivy is a much more accepted color now, too. Sometimes, your perfect lace design may not come in ivy, either, which is why you should know how to correctly dye lace. The best way to use it (believe it or not) is to combine strong coffee or tea with vinegar. You will want about an 8-to-1 ratio of coffee to vinegar. This should be used to soak the lace and then the lace should be rinsed in water.
How to Sew It
Sewing lace to fabric can be rather tricky. It requires two key things to remember: First, you must sew the right sides together. Both your lace and your fabric will have a right or a wrong side. So be sure to figure out which is which and pair them together correctly. Second, you will want to make sure that you sew over the lace heading and just off the fabric edge. The needle tension should be tight to cause the raw edge to roll toward the lace heading.
How to Pick It
Do not let anyone pick it for you. This is your dress. This is your day. This is your decision. You must absolutely love your lace. So look at your options. Determine if you prefer flowery designs or abstract. Notice how some lace designs are tight while others are loose. Find what makes you feel beautiful and don’t settle for anything less on your bridal lace for your special day.
For our 5 day stay in Singapore, I would say that the second day is the most important. You see, Lance requested for this trip for his birthday because he wants to see Optimus Prime. So Paul and I decided to schedule this day, Lance’s actual birthday, to go to Universal Studios.
We were supposed to arrive there as soon as it opens but since the kids were so tired from the travel the day before, they woke up a little late and we got there before lunch and with so many people already. But still, we were able to enjoy the day.
As soon as we bought the tickets, we got the schedule for the day and the map of USS. We first would like to go to the transformers the ride so we will be done with it but we passed by the Sesame Street Spaghetti chase ride so we rode that first. It is designed for kids so the ride was an easy one. Next stop, we decided to go to Transformers the Ride so we can catch up the meet and greet with the Autobots. The line there was a little long. Oh before that pala, they measured Hannah’s height and thankfully he’s just right on the dot that they allowed her to ride.
The line was a little long but since the kids are excited, they didn’t mind how long it took. When finally it’s our turn, we got to the ride and Paul and I enjoyed it so much. Unfortunately, the kids got a little scared and when we asked them if they want to try again, both of them said no. Though before we went home, they said they want to ride on it again.
When we got out, we saw people lining up and when we saw why, there’s Optimus Prime already! I was really happy for Lance when he saw Optimus, we let him have a solo picture with Optimus first before we joined for a family picture.
The next in our list is to see the Sesame Street show and the Madagascar Show. We were glad that we were able to see both shows and the kids love them. I for one enjoyed the sesame street show so much!
I’m really glad we were able to take the kids there. Both of them had so much fun and Lance kept on saying it’s the best birthday ever! Nothing more I can ask for!
Having good and reliable transportation is very important. When you travel, you should not worry about your car breaking down and not being able to get to your destination. Whether you need a more reliable car or want a new car, you need to go to a dealership that really cares about you and wants to help you get into a car that you deserve. A GMC Woodbridge dealership will help you find the perfect car for your needs.
If you are looking to get a new car, you will want to go to a dealership that will help you with everything that you need, as well as give you your space. There are many people that do not like the hassle with the salesmen; they can sometimes be pushy and overbearing, which can push you away from buying a car. By going to a dealership where the salesmen have respect for you, you will have the confidence knowing that you can take your time to find the best car for you.
When you go out to look for a new car, it is important that you go to a dealership that has many options for you to choose from. Do you want a brand new car or do you want a used car? By having both options and a big variety of GMC cars, you can narrow down your search until you find your new car. If you do not have time to go to the dealership and look around at the different cars, you can do your own search on the dealership’s website. By having all of the cars with their mileage, price, pictures, and details, you can decide which car you want even before you see it. This saves people a lot of time since they know exactly what they want.
Buying a car is a big purchase that you are making. You need to make sure that you are getting the best deal for your car. When you go to a GMC Woodbridge dealership, you will get the best price around for your car. By getting your car for a good price, you will never buy another car from any other dealership.
I always take the shuttle (usually a van or an L200) to and from work. There’s a terminal on the next street from our house going to work and from work, I walk 2 blocks to get to the shuttle terminal. Last Thursday and again last Tuesday, I met my old colleagues for dinner. Last Thursday was in Megamall and last Tuesday at gateway. On both occasions, I did not bring a car and resorted to riding the MRT to get to the meeting place as quickly as I can.
Thursday, I was prepared to “battle” with other MRT commuters since I was told it was very hard to ride due to the volume of people. Surprisingly, there’s not much people when I arrived at the terminal considering that it is a rush hour. I got to mega just in time. But Tuesday was a different story. I was a little relaxed on my way to the terminal expecting that it will be the same as the last time I rode the MRT. Unfortunately, when I get to Buendia station, the line was long already and is even along Buendia na! When I got inside, there are so many people trying to get inside the train. Thankfully there’s a line already to put order and to make sure that everyone will have their turn to get to the train. I was able to ride the train after 3 or 4 trains that passed by. I got to gateway around 7pm and felt tired already.
To make the long story short, I’m just glad I don’t take the MRT ride daily to get to my work and back home. Call me “maarte” but I don’t think I can last the daily commute if that’s the volume of people I have to go through with to make it to my destination; and I really admire those who do it every day.
