Themed Restaurants in Bali

Posted on Posted in Travel

You might think that the most important thing to think about when dining out is the food, but the ambience of the place is also important. You can’t enjoy food however good it is if your surroundings are grungy. Having stepped out of your pristine private pool villa you would notice grunge all the more. That said, it is fun to dine in a place that is completely different from most other restaurants in Bali.

The themed restaurants of Bali offer a dining experience that is out of this world because they have an ambience all of their own. The fun part is that they are not that well-known, so when you dine there you will have something to tell your friends about that they could well have missed out on. Here are some of them.

  • Tsavo Lion Restaurant – here you can actually dine with the lions; the glass panel separating you from these glorious predators is almost unnoticeable, making the experience even more unique. A selection of international dinner or lunch choices along with many different types of alcohol is available – try the Young African Lion cocktail.

  • While in Bali, visit Greece. If you venture into the Slippery Stone, you’ll be transported to a Grecian setting with sculpted pillars, stone walls, archways and statues and where all the authentic Greek food is done in the traditional Greek way – homemade. On Sundays you’ll enjoy the belly dancers, fire dancers and other entertainment.

6 Ways to Keep Safe During Renovations

Posted on Posted in House & Garden

Many people enjoy doing home renovations themselves, getting a lot of satisfaction in working with their hands – and tools – to create an improvement to their home and their lifestyle. Many renovations require you to move furniture out of the home and it is best to get a budget furniture removal company like Brilliance Removalists Perth in to do this, because they are much fitter for lifting than you are likely to be. They also have the aids that will help them. It will save back strain to have others do that heavy job. Here are some more tips to keep you safe during renovations.

  • Always wear eye protection. Even if you need to wear glasses, they don’t protect your eyes from flying debris or dust. You need to have goggles that will fit over the top and seal around the edges. They are made from stronger material than glasses and won’t shatter if a nail should fly into them. People have lost all or part of their vision because they didn’t follow this simple rule.
  • Wear a hard hat. Sure, we know that builders on construction sites wear hard hats, but many home renovators don’t even think about it. Things can fall on you, or you can get up and bump your head on something easily enough when crawling around the small spaces such as under the floor or the ceiling cavity. You only have one head; protect it.
  • Wear steel capped boots. It is easy to drop something heavy when doing renovations. Timber can bounce right onto your toes when you drop it. If you are working in joggers it can break your toe or a bone in your foot.

8 Tips for Transporting a Prestige Car

Posted on Posted in General

If you have a prestige car and need to freight it to another destination, choose a trustworthy and reliable transport company that offers the kind of service you would expect for such a car. After all, it is worth quite a lot of money and needs to be treated with kid gloves to keep it in pristine condition.

Here are 8 tips for transporting a prestige or collectible car

  • Research the transport company carefully. It is not only about cost, but for kind of care your car needs to keep it in good condition. Not all such companies will take vehicles that are prized collection pieces due to the potential cost to them if it gets damaged. Use a company that has experience in transporting prestige cars as they will have everything necessary to protect your car from damage.
  • Find a company that offers enclosed transport. This will protect your precious car from the weather and from the dirt and debris it is likely to get covered with on a long journey. It will also give you peace of mind, knowing your precious possession is safe. It is especially essential for vintage cars that are normally open to the weather to be protected on a long journey, otherwise the interior can sustain a lot of damage.
  • Clean the car inside and out, removing any dirt from the undercarriage and from the tyre treads.

How to Avoid Costly Delays with Plant Hire

Posted on Posted in House & Garden

When it comes to property renovation or building a new home, it is highly likely that excavation will be needed. Even the simple addition of a room may mean shifting loads of earth before you can start. Plant hire from professionals is best, especially if you are a home handyman renovator, because you can get advice on what kind of equipment you need and how big it should be.

The importance of size

There are many different sizes of excavating equipment and what you need for adding a room to a home on a gently sloping block would be quite different from levelling a whole housing site on a block that slopes a little more steeply. If you hire equipment that is not large enough for the job it will cost you in time – even in time taken to send the wrong sized excavator back and hire another one.

But if you hire an excavator that is far too big you may not even to able to get it onto the construction site. Many homes only have a narrow space between the wall of the house and the boundary fence. You can get a tiny excavator through, but not a large one. So size is important when choosing your equipment. You can’t always take down the boundary fence and invade the neighbour’s property.

In addition, a larger than necessary excavator – or any other equipment that is too large for the job – will cost you in terms of fuel and hourly hire, since the larger the equipment the more expensive the rate of hire would be. So it is highly essential to choose the right one.

Relationship Problem Solving Skills

Posted on Posted in Family & Relationships
Don’t let your problems overrule and ruin your life. Relationships are meant for keeps; do not let petty problems deter you from a great relationship. Learn from your problems and use them to strengthen a love relationship.
According to research, it is possible to have a troubled relationship if your parents too had a bad relationship with each other. We are born and brought up in a society where there is no formal education for solving relationship problems. It is up to us to keep a love relationship in good condition.
Whatever the state of your love life, the ability to solve any conflicts can be the key that makes a relationship work well. For that, both the partners have to find a mutual solution.
Some of the skills needed to make a relationship work:
– Communication – It is vital to communicate with one another, even if you have had a fight. The lack of communication may lead to serious problems and misunderstandings.
– Attitude – Do not show indifference towards your partner’s behavior. An indifferent attitude can really break a relationship that ultimately ends in a divorce. For example, if you have had a horrible fight and your partner is all in tears, make the effort to pacify her, or show in some subtle way that you too are feeling terrible about the brawl. Do not be indifferent, even though it is the easiest way to get out of a sticky situation.
– Share – For all the men, do not let the male ego stop you from doing household chores. If your partner is sharing your financial responsibilities, it is your duty to contribute to domestic tasks. Sharing both your duties and love will work wonders for improving your relationship.

  • Pink or red blush should go on the ‘apple’ of the cheek. Peach/orange tones should go on the highest point of the cheekbones while bronze tones should be placed on prominent points where the sun hits such as the bridge of the nose, chin and forehead.
  • Look for products with anti-aging properties such as peptides, hyaluronic acid and collagen to help prevent those fine lines and wrinkles, rather than having to treat them afterwards. Prevention is better than cure.
  • Make moisturiser your friend as it also helps to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.

Avoid Litigation with the Right Scaffolding

Posted on Posted in House & Garden

Every building works needs some kind of scaffolding in order for the builders and other tradesmen to work on parts that can’t be reached from the ground. Scaffolding can be a simple structure for single storey buildings or a highly complex structure for the many high-rise buildings that go up in cities across the world.

One thing is for sure, the building cannot be completed without this structure and if it is not safe nasty accidents will happen. And often, lives can be lost. When the scaffold collapses it is usually because it was not designed or built properly. The fault for this lies directly with the building company who ordered the scaffold. They should know to only use a scaffold company that has a good reputation in the trade for doing excellent work.

Home Renovations that Add Value to Your Home

Home Renovations that Add Value to Your Home

Posted on Posted in House & Garden

If you are into home renovations, it is a good idea to choose those that add real value to the home because one day you may have to put it on the market and book a removal company like Brilliance Removalists Melbourne. When this happens it is good to know you can add the price of the renovations onto the price of the home and be likely to get it.  So what kind of renovations are likely to give you a return on the investment like that?

  • Experts tell us that most kitchen renovations add good value to the home; the kind of value you can get back when you sell. The kitchen is one of the hardest working rooms in the home and so is most likely to wear out. Upgrading it can cost a great deal, so it is wise to set a budget of no more than 2% of the home’s value and stick to it.
  • This should be plenty to make a big difference in your kitchen, but you can still do renovations for less than that. Just adding more storage will make a kitchen more efficient. Repainting the walls and changing the lighting will make it look better and adding a moveable island will increase bench space, something that many chefs want. A new splashback and cupboard doors will lift your kitchen, too.
  • The bathroom is another area that can usually benefit from some renovations, especially in an older home where this important room is usually small and dark. Again, benchtop space is more important in the bathroom than most redecorators allow for.
  • Storage is essential, lighting should be ample and the hand-basin should be big enough for people with large hands. Even adding a mirror opposite the window will increase the natural lighting and enhance use. How about adding a stool or low bench to sit on or put clothes on?

What's Love Got To Do in a Relationship

What’s Love Got To Do in a Relationship

Posted on Posted in Family & Relationships

When you think hard about relationships, you would understand how intricate they actually are. To safeguard any rapport for a long time needs tactfulness and sincerity. Every person on this planet tries to have an innumerable number of relationships. They can have a liaison based on pure friendship or it can be dating devoid of any commitments and it can also be the bond of marriage. Every relationship has its own significance.

The question here is what exactly is the role of love in a relationship. When you look back through the pages of literature, Shakespeare captured the hearts of many with his much-adorned sonnets and poems on love. According to him, love is supreme and eternal. These are of course poetic expressions. On a practical note, relationships can lose their charm if the partners involved have no feeling of love towards each other.

The scenario has changed today and love for many is just a word or rather an emotionless idiom. Lets not emphasize on those relationships that have no commitment in them. Such liaisons can make or break any time. But when we throw a glance at long-time relationships like marriage, the term love plays a pivotal role.

First of all, for a relationship to survive, it is necessary that two people like each other, a stage that later transcends into love. If you definitely are in love with one another you will tend to agree on what each of you think and you will notice that your relationship will have less problems as compared to others. Also, love can help you in supporting your partner in every aspect. It helps build a strong pillar of respect and trust towards each other.

Posted on Posted in Family & Relationships

Love can happen anytime, anywhere, and with any one. Everyone experiences love once in his/her lifetime. It is a great feeling that brings joy and peace.

However, if the person you fall in love with is not the right one, your life can be miserable. Love is certainly a beautiful feeling and can change your life for the better or worse. There are times when we initially love and adore someone and feel on top of the world to have a girl or guy like that. As days pass by, the same person may become someone you simply want to avoid.

There are many relationships that begin on a great note and then face a traumatic end, as the relation turns sour, just because one did not realize that the other was not the right person for them. Here are a few warning signs that will help you to figure out if you are in love with the wrong person.

-It is good to be caring and loving, but to be obsessed is not the right feeling in a relationship. Many find possessiveness to be healthy in a relation, but if he/she is trying to control your every move and wishes to have you all the time, then he/she is certainly not the one for you. Possessiveness may look sweet at the beginning, but as time passes, you will find it difficult to spend life with such a person.
