Christmas is around the corner and it is time for those celebrating to start thinking of the perfect gift to give to those loves one. One thing that might be appreciated by a musicians friend would be spare parts for his guitars. For example those using gibson guitars would love to receive the gibson pickup rings as this would serve as a standby in case they ever need a replacement. Some extra picks would be nice too for sure.

Happy Shopping everyone!

Many people who are searching for a refrigerator used in restaurants wonder how they can choose a refrigerator intelligently. This is understandable because there are many refrigerators available that offer different benefits to users.

Here are four valuable tips that can help you develop an organized approach for choosing a refrigerator for your restaurant that are easy to use:

Compare Storage Capacities
Most restaurant refrigerators have storage capacities that vary from 20 to 80 cubic feet. Comparing these storage capacities is worthwhile because it can help you choose a refrigerator that offers enough storage to suit your restaurant’s needs.

Study Your Design Choices
There are many designs that are used to construct restaurant refrigerators. Some of the most popular designs include:

Reach-in designs that allow users to reach inside for food items.
Display cases that allow customers to view many food products at once.
Countertop designs that are useful for storing beverages and dairy items.

Studying these designs is recommended because it can help you simplify the process of choosing design elements for your refrigerator that suit your needs.

Compare Energy Consumption Rates
Restaurant refrigerators consume electricity at different rates. It is a good idea to compare these energy consumption rates because it makes comparing the cost of using the refrigerator easier to complete.

One way to do this is to use this energy consumption calculator for refrigerators that was created by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Using this energy consumption calculator is an easy way to compare energy consumption rates for most restaurant refrigerators used in the United States. This is the case because the EPA has information about the energy consumption rates for more than 10,000 refrigerator models used in the United States that is easy to use.

Compare Your Accessory Options
Most firms that sell restaurant refrigerators offer accessories that are designed to add value to a refrigerator. Some of the most popular accessories include:

Glass doors.
LED lighting packages.
Storage shelves, racks and baskets.

Comparing these accessories should be simple because most firms that sell restaurant refrigerators offer information about these accessories on their websites.

As you might have noticed, choosing a restaurant refrigerator intelligently requires an organized approach that can help you choose a refrigerator that offers the most value. As a result, be sure to use these tips to organize your next search for a restaurant refrigerator.

I love my job! Let me tell you why.

A while back, a friend asked me if I wanted to join her marketing analysis team. It sounded boring so I hesitated. I didn’t know anything about marketing analysis. Why was she asking me to be on her team?

She laughed when she saw the look on my face. “I mean mystery shopping.” Now I was even more confused.

“Mystery shopping? Do you mean shop lifting?” I asked.

“No! It’s just the opposite,” she said. “Businesses hire companies, like Above Benchmark, to send people like us into stores or restaurants. The mystery shopper then reports on the experiences. It helps business owners analyse their businesses.”

Now I understood what she meant, so I followed my friend’s lead and signed up.

Let me share with you how a mystery shopper can excel at this job:

Pay Close Attention to Details

Keep track of the names of the employees you meet at the business where you are sent. Don’t act like a reporter, writing everything down in front of the workers. Just act like a typical customer.

Take mental notes. How are the employees dressed? Are they helpful? Are the shelves and products clean? If you’re sent to a restaurant, remember the quality of the food. How is the customer service?

It takes time to get the hang of this, but with on-the-job practice, you’ll notice more details.

Make a Purchase and Keep Your Receipt

You’ll be reimbursed for your purchase. Making purchases are an important part of the job. What was the checkout process like? How long did you wait in line? Was the cashier courteous and accurate? Did she bag your purchase to your satisfaction?

Although reimbursement is certain, it can take several months to arrive. Also, be aware that travel expenses and tipping may not be eligible for reimbursement.

Write an Excellent Report about Your Experience

Follow the guidelines provided by the mystery shopper company that hired you. The more details you include in your report, the happier the store or restaurant owner will be. He can use the information you supply to improve his business – and to see where his company outshines the competition.

If you live in Australia, you can become a mystery shopper in Sydney or Brisbane by signing up with Above Benchmark. There is never a fee to join. Visit their website at

One of the best things about having a UTV is the fact that you can explore different types of terrain. However, you want to make sure that you have the right tires for your vehicle to make things easier. All outdoor trips are much more fun when you know that you’re properly equipped.

The Right Fit Makes a Difference

If you’re a serious rider, you probably have a specific brand preference and like knowing that you can get the right tires easily. One of the biggest advantages is the fact that several tire brands are suitable for your task. Being able to choose from several options that fit your needs, preferences, and budget makes the shopping experience much better.

Terrain Does Matter

All tires have different features designed to suit your needs. If you frequently access off-road trails, you’ll want tires that can handle rough, rocky terrain. Depending on where you live, the trails you access might have snow, ice or mud on them throughout part of the year. However, if most of your terrain is made up of sand dunes, you will have different tire needs. Having a choice of options makes things much easier.

Tread Depth

Tread depth makes a major difference in many settings. If you use your tires in snowy or muddy conditions, deeper treads are better. In any case, you’ll want to make sure that the tires wear evenly. Otherwise, you will end up spending too much time replacing your tires.

Self-Cleaning or Not?

One of the things you’ll have to cope with if you go off-roading very much is a lot of mud. Tires that have a design that releases mud with the vehicle’s motion are a very good choice. You will have the momentum that you need, without having to knock the mud out of the treads yourself.

Quality side by side accessories, including tires, make every off-roading trip much easier and will help you enjoy your trip in style. When you know you’re using the right tires, you navigate even the worst terrain easily. Buying and maintaining the best tires will ensure that you get the most out of your UTV.

Can you believe we are now into second half of the year. Where on earth did the time go to? I could have sworn I woke up on Monday and the next thing I know it’s Friday. Seriously this is no laughing matter. I need time to go more slowly. I mean before we know it, it’s time to check out the department 56 christmas in the city store for all those Christmas things once again!

If your roofing in Manchester, NH, is damaged, it can lead to a whole host of problems for your home. Your roof is responsible for protecting your house against the elements, and even the smallest problem can weaken its defenses. Websites like can help you learn how to identify problems with your roof so you can get it repaired as quickly as possible.

Do a Visual Inspection

It can be hard for some people to physically get up onto their roof, but this is often the best way of identifying problems like loose shingles or damaged flashing. If you can’t get up onto your roof yourself, have a roofing contractor do the inspection for you. If you decide to do the inspection yourself, make sure you check your roof thoroughly for any signs of moisture, mold, or rot. Look for any damaged areas and try to see if the damage is superficial or if it goes all the way down into your home. Don’t forget to check your gutters, since these can easily be pulled away from your home by wind or snow.

Look for Moisture

Inside your home, you can often spot roof problems by looking for signs of water damage. Go up into your attic with a flashlight and look for any mold, mildew, or standing water. You may even notice water spots on your walls or ceilings. Trace the water back to its source with your flashlight—the water will reflect the light, making it easier to follow. You might also notice a musty smell in your attic—this may be a sign of water damage that hasn’t become visible yet.

Watch Your Energy Bills

Another way to spot roof problems is by watching your energy bills. While these alone aren’t enough to diagnose a leaky roof, they can be a good indicator that something is wrong. If your roof is leaking, your heater or air conditioner will have to work much harder to compensate, and you will notice an unexplained hike in your energy bill. Find a local contractor on a website like who can check your whole house for leaks and other weak spots.

It’s that time of the year when all stores are having deep discounts and this year we decided that there are household stuff that we needed to replace. With shopping in our mind, we headed to our local superstore yesterday and well, shop. Lol!

It was a fruitful visit, we got all that we wanted and what was more awesome was that it was all very economical. Despite from the deep hole in Azwaj’s pocket, we were all happy with our purchase.

Speaking of deep hole, maybe we need to “seal” that hole eh? I found a site that features top casinos that offers no deposit bonus and also rtg bonus . Check out also their no deposit bonus blog that highlights sites with free bonuses and free spins. I love this no deposit blog and I am sure you will too. Check them out and good luck!

Security is always an issue when travelling alone. Although most times Azwaj is always available to take me where I want to go, there are times when he is simply too busy. During those times I have to take a cab and when that happens I always make sure to sms him the taxi number that I am in. Nowadays a girl can’t afford to be careless coz criminals are everywhere! Anyway I think I need to find out where to buy mace so I can keep one in my handbag. I mean always better to be extra safe right?

I am drowning in work and as much as I am thankful for the continued work, sometimes I wish I can take freeze frame my work and take some time off and just NOT work.. lol.. but then the moment I start to relax, it does feel like I need some form of hydraulic booster to get the momentum going again. It’s the same with blogging you know, I didn’t even realise that my last post was a Music Monday post and here is Monday all over again.. sigh.. time flies too fast for sure.

I suddenly have the urge to crochet something after I found my box of unused yarns, needles and patterns the other day. I don’t think I would crochet anything difficult like a cardigan or anything (that is probably better knitted anyway), but I do feel a nice tablecloth would be nice after seeing some burlap round tablecloth here.

Oh well, we’ll see if I pick up the urge or whether it would just go off in time. I tend to get lazy sometimes too!

Bring out the expensive or the cheap cigars as I’m in a celebration mood. My aunt’s surgery went very well yesterday and if not for the surgeon’s early departure today, she would have been allowed to leave the hospital today. Talk about speedy recovery right?

Anyway, I’m staying on till Thursday because mommy dearest is having an off day on Wednesday and since I have rescheduled my own doc’t appointment on Monday I might as well stay on to spend some time with her. Good thing Azwaj agreed :)

Happy weekend all!

I do some video editing work sometimes and though I don’t like it much (because it requires so much power and most times I have to stop my other work), I can’t help but be proud of the results. I guess it’s much the same when musicians used software like cubase at GC and smile at the end results I guess.

Oh well.. I am shopping for a new laptop soon and perhaps I can get a more powerful machine so I can do much more video editing without pulling hair eh.

We were cleaning the home store and came across some nice pictures of my late mother-in-law with Azwaj. Since we have a nice big wall space in the living room, we think it will nice to put screw in some eye bolt and hang those pictures up. We miss Mama and to have her pictures around will be nice for sure.

What a hectic week I had this week. I didn’t even have time to do any clothes shopping though I did accompany my cousin get her medical shoes and get my mom a new mobile phone. My luggage from Singapore this time around was empty! Lol!

Anyway since I wasn’t lugging around a heavy bag, I decided to bring home my very loyal laptop, Miss Fly. She has been in Singapore since last year so I thought this is the best time to bring her home for a much needed TLC from my very own computer man. Miss Fly still got life within her (She’s 4 this year) and for that I am thankful so I reckon I better take very good care of her :)

Azwaj has all these guitars that sometimes I wish I can play them as well. I mean he can’t possibly play all of them at once and I think it will fun to have a jam session with him right? hahaha..

So I found this epiphone pr-150 music123 and it only cost USD120.00 and according to the specs it’s fantastic for beginners like me I guess. Perhaps I should get it, practise on it and then graduate to the more expensive ones that Azwaj has.. hmmm..

You know how you make your nose seems sharper and your cheek bone seems higher with proper use of cosmetic and using the highlights methods? Well I wonder if I were to use airbrush tanning supplies at the tanning store, they can make me look slimmer with proper highlights and darkening of certain areas.. lol!

Worth a try? hmm…
