Just Got Back from the First Day of Sightseeing

without comments

I am driving around the island of Penang in some sort of car I never heard of before I got to the airport rental place this morning. I guess you can click here to find out more about Penang car rental if you really care what it is, apparently it is some sort of locally built car, that is a Malaysian built car if you did not know that Penang is in fact an island in Malaysia. I guess it is also a province as well, with the island and a bit of land on the Western tip of the Malay Peninsula. At any rate I have finished up the first day of my sightseeing. I came back to the hotel after all the storage devices I had with me were full. I guess that I did not have all of them with me in the camera bag and that sort of cut the picture taking short.

When Western Junk Meets Eastern Design Philosophy

without comments

With Singapore’s economic boom and financial revolution leading their city into the future, business and people from all over the world are flocking to this once humble Asian city-state in hopes for a better future or simply to be a part of the economic success that is allowing the city and its people to flourish! For a lot of Westerners who have moved here, it’s not surprising that they find themselves looking up http://www.store-friendly.com.sg within the first month. Why? It’s easy to see – just look at the way that we live back in our cozy, comfortable Western homes where all the space that we could ever need is made available to us. And yet, with all that space, what are we to do with it? When our culture’s have been designed on the basis of buying goods, we need plenty of room for all those goods, now don’t we?

What better place to put those goods than our very own homes? Indeed, our homes are filled to the brim with things we rarely ever ‘need’ but simply wanted. Read the rest of this entry »

Change Can Be a Good Thing Too

without comments

I wanted a new name card, simply because I was unhappy with the one I had. The reason I got that one was for the same reason, and the one before that too. It was my third design, and I was still unhappy. I am not a hard person to please, so I knew that it had to be the company I was using. I did a search for name card designers, and that is how I came to find minibig graphic design. I looked over the work they had displayed on their site, and I was impressed just from that.

I clicked on the tab that explained in detail about their process for creating a new name card for a company or individual, and I knew just from that that I wanted them to design my new one. Read the rest of this entry »

Casinos Cater to All Walks of Life

without comments

Gambling is a real treasure, something to be enjoyed by all people no matter where you might live. While I was in Mexico I saw advertisements online for many casino bonus senza deposito – a casino bonus let’s you continue playing online or to keep your own winnings! With so many different laws and regulations with gambling, it can be quite the complex system. It’s difficult to find a casino that can be reliable, or even legal, and if you’re anything like myself you just want to have some fun without worrying about the law getting into your business. Gamblers don’t do anything wrong, we simply like our cards or slots or bets. We enjoy the anticipating rush we get whenever we’re making a hit, a call or pulling the lever of our favorite slot machine. We’re a superstitious folk who rarely do any wrong and we come from all walks of life! I met some great friends while in Mexico – they gave me some fantastic advice and experiences with their own versions of the games. Read the rest of this entry »

For Once My Friend Was Right

without comments

uncategorized One day while having lunch with a friend, she asked me if I heard about kopi luwak guru. I told her that I didn’t and asked what it was. She told me that it was a place where I could buy the most amazing coffee in the world. That was a pretty bold claim for her to make, given that there are many places that sell coffee, and they all could easily make the claim of having the world’s most amazing coffee. At first I thought my friend was just giving me her usual brand of hyperbole that she likes to spin on everything. She has a really bad habit of hyping everything up beyond what it actually is worth.

My friend assured me that what she said was true, and after lunch, she took me back to her home.

Using Sydney Promotional Products to Increase Non-Profit Donations

without comments

You would be surprised how much small items are held in esteem by those who receive them if there is an emotional attachment to the items. The way to establish the attachment is to have the items custom printed with a logo or motto, and then make them available for a price. I use sydney promotional products from a company that has a wide selection. The price I am talking about can be monetary or service related. We use a combination of both here at our group.

We have a logo that is widely known in the area where we are at. Our non-profit group relies on donations to do the work we do. People really feel good in supporting us, and they like to identify with us as a group along with what we are accomplishing. I think it is the same for all non-profit groups. They are doing something for people, and the groups themselves are supported by people. We have a good name and reputation, and people do not mind giving to help us.

They Lit Up Our Pool

without comments

uncategorized When my husband told me that he wanted to put a swimming pool in our backyard, I was excited. I thought he meant one of the standard ones though, so my excitement grew even more when he showed me the plans that he wanted to use. I loved all of the detail, especially the cascading waterfall and all of the lighting that surrounded the pool. I knew he was going to do the majority of the work himself, which is why we could afford something so nice. He was going to need an electrician in brisbane to help with the electrical work though.

I thought at first that he was going to attempt to even do this because he has done minor electrical repairs around the house before.

Submit Your Famous or New Recipe

without comments

uncategorized My friends and I were starting a new club where we would go and take a lot of different recipes and print them out for one another. It seemed like it was getting crazy so we decided that the fourteen of us would meet one day a month with the new recipe that we wanted to share and also provide a sample for everyone else to taste. After a year we saw that we had a lot of new recipes and thought that we would take it to the internet. I had web design experience so I thought that I would come up with a great new web design that would allow people to go and submit a new recipe and then we could index it by the type of food or by key ingredients. That way, it would be easy for people to search for recipes based on this information. My family was really happy that I was working on something other than the house, which is what I do all day until the kids come home from school.

It took me a few weeks to come up with the best lay out of the website and I would shoot my friends emails about what they thought of the test pages. They would tell me what they thought could be changed or be done to look better and then we would all end up sending emails back and forth to discuss what could be done to make it look better. I finally had a web site that I was proud to show my friends at the next monthly meeting and they could not believe how nice the site came out. I was the hero of the group and today we have over four thousand recipes submitted by other people.

What are inexpensive ways to eat out for 2 weeks?

with 4 comments

We are taking a family vacation this summer. We are driving 2000 miles to Texas for two whole weeks to visit family and we need your ideas for eating out that is inexpensive! There will be 6 of us…all young adults and one teen. We are staying with family for the most part and I plan on buying things for breakfast but for lunch and supper, I’ll have to think of creative ways to eat on a budget. For two weeks that be quite costly. My 3 brothers will have us over the odd time for suppers but for the most part we’ll be on our own. Any great ideas out there??

One way is to eliminate either lunch or dinner. You can save money by having your family snack on nuts, fruits, etc.. during the day between breakfast and dinner to eliminate having to spend money on lunches. That also happens to be a very healthy lifestyle. As far as dinners, just try to pick restaurants that are less expensive, such as Mexican, which I’m assuming you can find anywhere in Texas for prices under $10 per person. Also, depending on where you’re staying, you could bring a small, portable gas grill, do some grocery shopping in Texas, and grill some chicken and veggies. I have a Portable gas grill, and it has been amazing in many situations. Totally worth the investment.

I want to cook healthy?

with 5 comments

I want to start cooking healthy and gluten free. This will be hard cause I don’t even know how to cook at all! So I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on healthy cooking APPS???

Fresh vegetables, stir-fried in olive oil. Add gluten-free spices, salt, and pepper.

Dried beans. Soak overnight, cook for about an hour, and drain. Add gluten-free spices, salt, and pepper. There are dozens of varieties of dried beans!

Brown rice. Cook for 30-45 minutes. Add gluten-free spices, salt, and pepper.

Chicken breasts. Slice thin, cook in olive oil and add gluten-free spices, salt, and pepper.

Gluten-free pasta (rice pasta; the brand "Tinkyada" is the best). I like to add a little olive oil and some oregano/basil (you can buy "Italian Seasoning) and salt.

You can add gluten-free pasta or pizza sauces to any of the above. You can add small amounts of low-fat cheese such as mozzarella, parmesan (fresh is best), and provolone. Small amounts of pecans, walnuts, and almonds can add crunch and "good" fat to your dishes.

Eggs. Hardboiled eggs are high protein and relatively low-fat. I still like to fry mine in a little olive oil, though.

Yogurt (I like Greek yogurt) with fresh fruit such as blueberries, bananas, and strawberries added. You can also add a drizzle of honey if you like your yogurt sweeter.

"Gluten free" doesn’t necessarily mean "healthy". There are a lot of highly-processed gluten-free foods out there, and they’re just as bad for you as the "glutenated" kind. They’re OK for occasional, but sparing, use.

You can of course use "vegetable" oil for your frying, but I prefer "light" olive oil, which is suitable for baking and frying. Don’t use "extra virgin" olive oil for this; it’s best for salads.

I am a celiac, and I like to remember "eat fresh and eat naked" when I am cooking. I do have the occasional indulgence, such as gluten-free cookies (Betty Crocker has a GREAT gluten-free boxed cookie mix) and gluten-free cupcakes from a local bakery. Don’t deprive yourself, or you’ll end up gobbling everything in sight some night at 3 am.

Should I add a school-run restaurant to work history?

with 2 comments

I went to R.G. Drage Career Technical Center for culinary arts and we had a restaurant. We all worked in the restaurant cooking, serving, or doing the dishes. I would really like to add this to my resume for the customer service aspect so I ask, should I add this to my resume? If so, how should I label it and the dates?

Add it. It is pertinent and proper./

What is the best way to plan out meals for the week on a budget?

with 9 comments

My husband and I just got married and are on a budget. How do I plan out good meals for the week that will also help me stay in a budget between $50-$100 for the week.

Also what are some good ideas for lunches to take to work? I would take more sandwiches, but I do not like them after they have been pre made and sit in the fridge. Any other suggestions would be great.

Thanks!
Oops I also forgot…if you have any good cheap meal suggestions that would be great too?

If you have a farmer’s market near you, get your produce there. It’s usually cheaper and fresher and sometimes, if you catch the sellers at the end of the day, you can bargain for some great deals on produce because they would rather sell it than take it back home.

Once a month I make a huge pot of vegetarian chili with vegetables bought from the farmers market. Load it up with tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, onions, peppers and celery. With chopped mushrooms in it you don’t even miss the meat. Then I get the "Pruta" package of 17 plastic containers from IKEA for 5 bucks and package up chili to keep in the freezer for quick meals. It heats fast in the microwave. Also that chili is great with eggs for weekend breakfasts…put the chili in a non-stick skillet and when it starts to bubble, crack an egg or two right on top and cover and cook until the egg is the way you like it. Top with shredded cheddar and you’ve got a fabulous breakfast or brunch.

Waste nothing, take all those vegetable ends, herb stems, meat bones, seafood shells and keep them in a large zip loc bag in the freezer. When you have enough you can cover them with water in a stock pot or dutch oven and simmer a few hours to make your own stock or soup broth. It’s also good for gravies and sauces.

See if your local supermarkets have email sale circulars and sign up for them so you won’t miss any sales.

If you have a 99 cent store near you, see if they have a food aisle. I don’t trust a lot of the products they have but you can get herbs and spices and dried beans, rice and pasta super cheap sometimes. (My local store sells 2 16 oz bags of dried beans for 99 cents).

Lunch couldn’t be easier…make enough at dinner to take leftovers for lunch. For sandwiches wrap the bread, meats and vegetable in separate packages and assemble them at lunch time, they’ll taste much fresher.
