Sentosa is one of the most beautiful man-made islands that never fails to satisfy. The top tourist destination attracts visitors with its beautiful beaches, parties and an array of activities. The beautiful beaches and countless  special events for both adults and kids are appealing. But not all travellers have enough budget to enjoy everything the island has to offer.

Contrary to popular belief, the island offers plenty of choices for the budget-concerned traveller. This is especially true for food. In fact, your $20 can go a long way with these picks:

Siloso Beach Picks

The beach walk is littered with numerous food stands. The Bikini Bar, for example, offers sinful delights your wallet will love. Their deep fried chicken rice balls ($12) and pork belly ($14) are worth the try. Cap the meal off with a tall glass of ice cold beer.

Shangri-La’s 8 Noodles at Dine on 3

Your cravings for noodles might lead you to this special place, which sits in a secluded area in Rasa Sentosa Resort on the beach. If you want to ditch the usual pork or wanton noodles, 8 Noodles offers fish udon for $15.80. The meal comes with fresh slices of garoupa and delicious udon plus herbal broth.

Malaysian Food Street

The local fare at Malaysian Food Street is a  must-have for the traveller-on-a-budget. With its old world décor, visitors will feel as though they were transported to1960s Penang—with air conditioning. Popular picks in this food place are the Penang Lim’s Brothers Char Koay Teok ($5.50), Malacca Chicken Rice balls ($5) and Hokkien Mee ($6.60).

Maintaining a healthy and good-looking lawn requires only the basics: water, sun, and fertilizer. Once it gets all these, your lawn will flourish all year round. A lawn expert in Utah shares the following tips on proper lawn care:

Setting Up the Soil

Setting up your lawn requires proper planning and preparation. Regardless of the planting method you intend to use, you must prepare the area carefully. Get rid of weeds and make sure the soil will not crust over immediately or lump into compact ruts.

Seeding

While you can easily roll out a sod carpet, it can be very expensive, especially if you have a big lawn. A good alternative would be to seed the lawn on your own, whether by hand or through hydroseeding. Farmers use the hydroseeding method to ensure even seed dispersal on large fields.

Mowing the Lawn

Many people mow their lawns too short, and this stresses the grass out. Raise the mower notch to the highest level possible. This way, when you cut the grass, you only get to mow the top 1/3. A good grass height help improve root development. It likewise helps shade the ground, preventing the ground from drying up fast.

Watering

Ideally, you should water your plants only once every week, but it must be deep enough. Soaking the roots weekly helps them extend more deeply into the soil. More frequent shallow watering can result in thatch. Consider the type of soil you have in order to determine how much water you should provide your lawn. Clay soils can hold moisture for a longer time and do not need frequent watering. Sandy soils have the tendency to dry out faster.

Air Supply

If the grass is too compacted, its roots cannot get enough nutrients. In this case, aeration is necessary. This means you have to poke holes in the lawn to promote better oxygen circulation.

If maintained properly, your lawn will add beauty and value to your property. Keep these tips in mind to make sure that your lawn gets the best type of care possible.

Agriculture remains the most undermined and overlooked economic sector in the world. Given a choice, many graduates would not consider a career in the agricultural field. However, this is just a deep running misconception among people who don’t understand the economic value of the sector.

At least three times in a day, people need to consume food for sustenance and good health. Every food item on a plate, regardless of the processing method, contains some agricultural products. The recurring need for food makes agriculture one of the most lucrative business sectors in the world. But to make the most of your farming venture, you need to bear a few important factors in mind.

Act, don’t react

Global warming, climate change, exotic pests and diseases, water scarcity and a changing market preference are some of the pressing challenges in farming. In some instances, these factors make the venture unprofitable. Whilst the odds might seem overwhelming, that is not reason enough to give up.

Thanks to modern technology, you can anticipate these challenges and take the appropriate corrective measures. Technological advancements give you a better understanding of your land’s productivity or potential and the best crops to suit your region’s climatic conditions. Agricultural experts are on hand to provide you with sound advice about pest and disease control right from the start.

Embrace agricultural conservation practices

Long term planning is key to running a successful agricultural enterprise. That means embracing soil management practices that pose minimal disruption to the soil composition, structure and biodiversity. Such an approach allows you to get higher yields each season without spending a fortune on agricultural inputs.

K-Line Agriculture stresses the importance of proper farming tools and equipment. If you are looking for a power harrow for sale in Australia, you will not have a hard time finding one, as many companies offer this tool at a competitive price.

Despite deep running misconceptions, agriculture remains a lucrative business venture for many. With proper planning and use of modern farming technology, you can take your farming business to greater heights and achieve continued success.

Woman being injected with botox on faceIn the last decade, there has been an explosion in the number of people getting Botox. This cosmetic procedure is clinically tested and approved as a way of smoothing wrinkles as well as solving other skin problems. So why is Botox gaining such exponential growth all over the world? Here are four reasons.

It is effective

Botox’s charm lies in its ability to quickly remove wrinkles and lines on your forehead, around your eyes, and anywhere else on your face. After a simple injection, the targeted muscles will no longer contract, which makes the wrinkles soften, says the experts at the Utah Dermatologic & Medical Procedures Clinic. This effect, however, is not permanent and after three to four months you may need to take another Botox treatment in Salt Lake City.

The procedure is safe

You are probably aware of cosmetic procedures that have disastrous effects on people such as bruising and internal bleeding. Unlike such procedures, Botox is safe. Since its approval almost two decades ago, no one has reported any serious side effects of the process. Still, it’s worth mentioning that you should get Botox from a specialist.

Botox is a convenient treatment

One of the shining features of Botox is that it is a very quick procedure. While cosmetic surgery takes some time to prepare and complete, Botox will take about 15 minutes. Additionally, you need not disrupt your working schedule during and after Botox, while some cosmetic procedures would require you to be bedridden for days.

It helps with your migraines

Botox is an effective way to relieve regular migraine attacks. You can have a specialist administer a series of injections to help relax the muscles that trigger the migraines. Botox will also help block the sensory nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain.

The competitiveness of Botox as a cosmetic procedure is due the effectiveness, safety and convenience. It is still essential that you take care of your skin and keep it looking youthful and smooth.

Karate

Focus and concentration – these seem difficult to achieve even for adults. Yet, young children who attend regular karate classes can summon the strength of will to focus on a task and concentrate on an activity as instructed by their masters. Developing mental strength is equally important as attaining physical prowess in karate.

Children who develop focus and concentration at a tender age also manifest self-confidence, discipline, and respect for others.

When you enroll these young ones in taekwondo lessons for kids, they will learn how to best channel their energy. These classes not only allow them to let off steam. The structure and inherent discipline required of the sport gives them a framework to organize their thoughts and actions. They learn about self-control and taking responsibility for their actions.

House in OttawaAre you thinking of converting your home into money? Then sell it! But before you do, know more about the real estate market in Ottawa. Before you call for a property assessment specialist in Ottawa, such as UCS Advisors | Pigeon-Roy, get some ideas on how you can sell it quickly without losing.

The Best Time to Sell

In Ottawa, houses tend to sell the fastest during spring and summer. Around these times, people have the chance to go out and inspect homes properly. 

Ottawa Real Estate Board said their members sold more than 1,500 residential properties in April 2017. This is an increase of almost 5 percent in 2016. Around 312 of these were condominiums.

Note, though, if you are selling your home to move to another, you are also a part of the market. You will also face competition, so do not delay your offers.

Best Price

Many factors can influence your selling price. There is the market demand. Prices these days are on an upward trend. This is because supply has been low while the demand is high. What is interesting is there is a need for high-end units. The Ottawa Real Estate Board report suggested sales for homes over $1 million doubled in 2017. The average selling price is almost $500,000 for a residential class property.

Guessing the best price, though, does not work. You need to have a basis for it. A small increase can mean losing a potential buyer. Your home stays in the listing for a longer period. The longer it remains there, the lower the chances someone purchases it.

To know the right price, you can check the market value of similar houses within your area. You can also include the costs for repair, upgrade, and maintenance.

Selling a home in Ottawa does not happen overnight (unless you are very lucky), but you also should not wait long. Put these two in mind, and you already have a good start.

Fortunately, there are many ways to reduce your spending. Remember these tips.

Install a water sprinkler

Automatic water sprinklers are a plus for home insurance companies. They are one of the best defenses against fire. There are two major classes of these items, class A and B, and the discount depends on the type you have chosen.

Take note, though, water sprinklers are also a source of arguments about homeowners. While they are helpful, some are wary they can increase home insurance costs. One of the reasons is their accidental activation, causing flooding or water damage.

Always check your sprinkler is working. Call for residential water sprinkler services in Utah for installation, inspection, and repair.

Pay a deductible

The deductible is your out-of-pocket expense. It is what you pay before the homeowner's insurance kicks in. Obviously, the higher the deductible, the lower the insurance premium. Experts advise paying at least $500 as a deductible.

Know the pluses

You can get discounts if you ask for it, but insurance companies will have criteria. You are more likely to negotiate your premium if you have a good credit history. If you are staying home most of the time, you can use that to your advantage.

You can also request for a lower charge if you enhance your security and safety features. Living in a crime-free neighborhood can boost your negotiation chances.

In the end, the actual costs of the insurance should be secondary to the value you get from the policy. It should be enough to cover everything valuable (excluding land).

When brushing your hair extensions, make sure that you not only do it often and in the right manner, but also with the help of the right tool.

Example of blond hair extensions Taking care of any hair extension is an ongoing process, and its results depend on your knowledge of how to take care of it and the effort you put in.

Read the following pointers to help you have a better idea of hair extension maintenance:

1. Brush Your Hair.

When brushing your hair extensions, make sure that you not only do it often and in the right manner, but also with the help of the right tool. Use a brush made out of soft bristles and start brushing from the bottom as you would with your natural hair. Detangle problematic sections with your fingers to ensure you do not cause breakage to the hair.

2. Take Care of the Bonds.

Any measure to take good care of your hair extension goes down the drain if you do not get it right with the bonds. This is because, when hair bonds are overstressed, the hair around them starts degrading and falling off. As a result, to ensure that your hair extensions remain good looking and last for a long period, avoid pulling the bond when tonging, styling, or blow-drying them.

3. Condition Your Hair.

A good hair extension maintenance routine involves a nourishing leave-in conditioner. Make it a point to spray it in, or directly apply with your palm using a downward motion to ensure maximum absorption. Do not apply multiple nourishing products on your hair at the same time. If you are not certain of what to use on your hair extensions, contact your hair stylist in Denver for a comprehensive advice on hair care.

The above-mentioned hair extension care procedures should guarantee your hair extensions lasting longer and remaining in good condition. It is best that you always contact your hair stylist in case you want to clean or change a hair extension.
