Tastes of Singpore

I've never been to Tastes of Singapore.

The name does suggest that you can sample some of the most famous dishes of Singapore. I hear there are some fantastic dishes from which to choose (which one!) While Jumbo Satay and crunchy Japanese soft-shell crab in chilli sauce might be something I would want to taste, I think I would have to opt for sampling the Lobster Laksa.

lipozene review

I've never been to read a lipozene review.

With so many diet pills and plans out there, it is important to do your homework before picking something in hopes it will help speed up weight loss. Reading a few lipozene reviews can help you make a better decision and maybe afford some savings too.

the Jewel Box

I've never been to the Jewel Box.

This restaurant features sky dining with a view to Singapore and Sentosa. The Jewel Box is reportedly suspended from the cable tower and loops Mount Faber and Sentosa Island. A three course meal is offered at $68 sing per couple.

three movies in one month

I've never been to the movies three times in one month before!

This month I have been to the movie theater three times! This is unusual for me. And even more unusual is the fact that we bought the large combo (large soda and large popcorn) each time! Granted, sharing it between four people is better than chowing down on it all by myself, but at this rate, maybe I better check into some of the top fat burners available. I'm going to need something to help me get rid of all the fat I've consumed in those three trips!

I've never been to Trapizza.

This novel eatery located in Sentosa, Singapore apparently offers something extraordinary with its fare of pizza and pasta. I hear that you can use the on site trapeze to perform either gymnastics or acrobatics moves!

I've never been to

The site looks like it has some good information about some common prenatal vitamins. Not only does it compare, but it provides information about what to look for in a prenatal vitamin, why they are important, and the important qualities identified in the vitamins. All this information should help the new mother-to-be make a better decision on which prenatal vitamins are best for her and her baby.

street luge

I've never been to a street luge.

My son just enjoyed the street luge on Singapore's Sentosa Island. He said you take the ski lift up over the jungle and then ride the "go karts" down. There is no motor but you can steer the luge. I would love to give this a try on my next trip!

compare weight loss pills

I've never been to compare weight loss pills.

I know many people these days use weight loss pills as a supplement, or even as their only tool, to gain weight. It seems like before you begin taking any you would want to talk with your doctor and do some homework to find the best weight loss pills. It seems like this would make it safer and easier to choose the best supplement for your body.

analyze your writing

I had never been to analyze my writing before.

I found a site where you can submit a sample of writing, including blog posts, to see which famous author your style matches. After submitting a couple of posts from this site, I found that:

I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

mat pilates

I had never been to mat pilates before.

A couple of weeks ago, I met the teacher for the mat pilates class. She invited to come to the class. I told her that I had not been cleared after my foot surgery yet to do any and every exercise. She offered to modify the moves for me and told me to just do what I could. While I could not do everything, I still got a good arm and abs workout. I am sure the total body workout will be just as effective.

Burton, TX

I had never been to Burton, TX before.

We spent one night there this past weekend. It is a nice enough little town. The bed and breakfast we stayed at was nice enough. There were a couple of restaurants, but none were opened while we were there! There is a cotton gin museum to see. It is interesting though small. I think though the big draw of Burton is the antiquing folks come to do in the spring. I guess then the streets are more crowded and even the restaurants may open then!

NC health insurance

I've never been to look into NC health insurance.

But for those living in North Carolina, finding the information on line is very helpful. You can choose a family or individual plan, or even build a group plan. You can get a free rate quote online. You can even apply online. If you apply today, your coverage will begin in just over two weeks!

Win Every Game

I had never been to Win Every Game before.

I did know that my husband and his friends used a website to "cheat" while playing Words With Friends (like Scrabble) on their iPhones. I just didn't know how they cheated. My husband showed me this website, where you can put in all your letters and it will generate a list of words using those letters! I guess that is how these guys have learned to win every game!

I've never been to declare bankruptcy.

And I just learned something important about doing so. Even though declaring bankruptcy erases some debts like mortgage and credit card debt, it apparently does NOT erase college loan debt! This is important knowledge for college students and their parents. As it becomes increasingly harder to pay for college, declaring bankruptcy once out will not likely help the student. They could end up defaulting on loans and effectively ruin their credit. Better yet is to find an affordable college and be able to work and steadily pay off any loans taken out to cover the cost of higher education.

non-smoking smoking area

I've never been to a non-smoking smoking area.

(Although I have been in a non-smoking area where people are smoking!) But I am afraid this may become the wave of future with the new electronic cigarettes. I did see a guy coming out of a store smoking one, and that is exactly what I thought. He is smoking in a place designated as smoke free! He may think that no one is bothered by it since there is not a cloud of smoking being emitted while he smokes the electric cigarette. However, I could smell it and detected it as a cigarette. I hope that the new electric cigarettes will also be off limits in non-smoking areas.

I've never been to

At least not to place an order. I have looked at the site before. Since I was eligible for a discount today, I thought I would give it a try. is named after the maid on The Brady Bunch and is a site that helps you stay stocked up on household items without having to go to the store to shop!

There are many items available and shipping is free. There is a minimum order of six items. There are only name brand items and a few coupons. So if you buy only generic and store brands, it may not help you save any money. But if you are looking for certain brands of items, there are many available, even several choices for "green" and natural products.

Delivery is supposed to be in 3-4 business days. You can also make a list of often used products on a reorder timeline. It seems like a pretty convenient way to shop!

pulse oximeter

I've never been to get a pulse oximeter.

I guess I did not even know they were available! But I just learned that they can be purchased online both for hospitals and for individual use too! Some come with free carrying cases or a belt hook. Some are even on sale right now!

Toy Story 3

I had never been to Toy Story 3.

On this rainy day our family went to see the new movie. It was better than I had expected, probably because the story fit my family life. Without giving anything away, I like how they aged Andy appropriately and the story tugged at my heart. I don't like how they put in double entendres and sexuality into kids' movies, but it's in there too. In the end, I like how the movie played out and say that it will be a hit for many families.

US imprints

I've never been to U S imprints.

They offer many imprinted promotional items ranging from custom mugs to key chains, calendars, even tools. These are great ideas for fundraisers and promotions. They guarantee to beat any competitor's price.
