One thing I think is really neat about Singapore is how the architecture itself has natural spaces built into it. Plus, they like to build things that are just pretty to look at. The newer buildings in Singapore have a visual appeal to them rather than them just being squarish towers that poke up from the ground into the sky. It is really cool to look up and see an area several stories high halfway up a building that has trees growing. A new condo project at thenewfuturacondo.com.sg is an example of this type of building that you will find in Singapore.
The two-tower construction is designed to look like a lantern at night. The shape is pleasing to look at during the day as well. There are natural areas built into the construction of both towers. Continue reading “Interesting Architecture Found in Singapore”
My wife took me to a chiropractor in Salinas the other day when I woke up in the morning and suddenly couldn’t get out of bed. I mean that literally, too. I literally could not get out of bed. She was in the bathroom taking a shower while I grunted and strained to simply get myself up and out of bed. I couldn’t move and it was obvious that my old back problem and returned with a vengeance. I should have known this would happen because I hadn’t had an episode in some time. It always shows up when it’s least expected.
Still, this was the first time I literally couldn’t get out of bed. That was an alarming escalation with this problem and one that had to be remedied immediately. Continue reading “Perfect Solution for when the Pain Gets Bad”
I was always afraid to be outside in the sun without my skin being covered. I wanted to have a little more freedom to enjoy swimming, hiking and riding my bicycle. Golf would be more fun too if I was not wearing long sleeves. I decided to get my moles removed so I did not have to worry about them having sun exposure. I went to an aesthetic medical clinic in Singapore to have the procedure done. The doctor there was able to have all of the moles off in a few minutes. I had four that I waned removed. It was quick and painless.
I grew up being afraid of being in the sun and having a mole change color. Continue reading “Getting My Moles Removed for More Time in the Sun”
Corporate shooting days have been pretty popular at the local shooting area. Businesses will come there with their employees and have fun outings for team building. Some of the business owners have come up with an idea of having a competition between the businesses. They want to take the top shooters from each business and put them up against each other for a prize. To determine the to shooter, each business would have to go to the shooting area once for their own corporate day. I like the idea of businesses shooting against each other, and hope that I can make the team if the idea is finalized.
At the last shooting day that I went to, I did pretty well among the workers. I went from not being able to shoot at all because of bad aim, to being able to hit most of the clay pigeons that are shot into the air. Becoming that good at shooting isn’t something that simply happens over night. Continue reading “A Competition Between the Businesses”
We were looking for a unique way to have a family get-together during the holidays. We were discussing whose house we would all gather at when someone suggested we have a Christmas party in Bristol at the shooting school where we all go to shoot sporting clays. I thought that might be fun, so I looked into it. A shooting holiday party sounds fun. We are a competitive bunch, and an opportunity to bring out the shotguns and shoot some sporting clays seemed like a great time. If we could have the meal catered, then there would be no need for the pot luck type of meals we had been having on holidays. Continue reading “Finding a Place to Have Our Family Holiday Party”
