Hello Kitty Cafe Truck: Old Orchard Mall in Skokie, Illinois

Image
I missed the Oakbrook schedule in Summer and I am so happy that the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck has another schedule this Fall somewhere nearby us! We lined up as early as 8 am to purchase official Hello Kitty merchandise and yummy treats! The truck arrived early to set up their menu and non-food merchandise outside LL Bean in Old Orchard Mall in Skokie, Illinois. The weather on that day was a bit cold!





Hello Kitty fans from different areas drove couple of hours just to purchase Hello Kitty themed items starting from snack items like bow shaped bottled water, Hello Kitty cookies, 4 small pieces set of cakes and macarons and merchandises like shirt, mug and tumbler. The items sold out quickly so I suggest you get there about 2 hours earlier.



I compiled all photos and videos and created a videos. Thank you for watching!



Good thing that the truck has 2 units traveling for West and East fans! You can check the schedule on their official Facebook page - Hello Kitty Cafe Truck and plan according…

An Office Visit to Project T Solutions

Image
If you ever had a home-based IT job, you must have experienced some technical difficulties that rendered you unable to work your tasks.

Maybe you've experienced a power outage at one point in time, or maybe the internet connection slowed down or even busted, or worse, your medium in getting the job done crashed.





Working at home meant you won't be able to interact with people, which can get boring sometimes, having no one to talk to. Working at home sometimes mean you have to endure summer's sweltering heat, but sure you'd be lucky if it's raining because you won't have to leave the comfort and safety of your own home. But the again we'd go back to the discussion of technical difficulties the rainy day might bring.



Here to save you from that dilemma is Project T Solutions, a workplace away from your workplace. To describe them simply, they are like a hotel for your office. They can provide you what you need just so you can get your work done. They provide co…

Host your next meeting or business seminar at Project T Solutions

Image
I love attending on site seminars and virtual conferences. Some seminars I attended were mostly about Digital Marketing or Business Development and those were hosted off-site and online! I wanted to feed my brain with interesting subject matters and interact with resource speaker through questions and answers. I even helped providing a slide presentation for a SEO basics seminar in the Philippines because I am so comfortable sharing my work experience to those who would like to learn about website optimization.

One of the goal at the end of each seminar is to provide you a good experience. I had one bad scenario when attending a virtual seminar where I heard loud noises at the background and the seminar was hosted on a computer shop! I hardly understand the discussion and ended up hanging up leaving the conference to my disappointment. So, make sure you have rented a good and quiet venue for the attendees to enjoy the entire program. You don't want them to leave a bad feedback on …

Journey to the top - Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri

Image
It's my nth time traveling to St Louis, Missouri and this time we stayed at Hampton Inn - St Louis Downtown at the Gateway Arch. It's a walking distance from the hotel going to the Gateway arch and nearby establishments like restaurants, sports and entertainment venues like Busch Stadium, Dome at America's Center, Scottrade Center. Also, the hotel is accessible to public transportation like buses, trains and taxis.

I booked a deluxe queen room for two nights and we really enjoyed the amenities offered by Hampton Inn. The room has everything you need like mini-fridge, coffeemaker, free Wi-Fi and FREE BREAKFAST! The hotel also has perks like business center, fitness center, heated indoor pool and game room. Unfortunately, they don't have a restaurant inside but there's a bar adjacent to the hotel. For snacks and beverages, there's a kiosk in the lobby side area and a microwave oven to reheat your food.


Touring Downtown St Louis is very easy. We learned that you c…
