SM City Lucena launched Merry Ferris Wheel Centerpiece

Last November 7, SM City Lucena launched their Christmas centerpiece called “Merry Ferris Wheel”. After a short program (I think less than 30 mins.) all the lights lighted up  and was opened to the public afterwards.

Kapuso actress “Kris Bernal” was spotted doing posing in the SM City Lucena Christmas centerpiece the day after it was launched. I think she was there to promote a shoe brand and made picture taking in this Merry Ferris Wheel after her duty. I didn’t see her but we were there yesterday, maybe I was a little bit late because we went to the church before going to the mall.

Where to Buy Equipment to Cut or Drill Concrete

You may have a project at your home or business in the near future that will require you to cut or drill some concrete. This is a very serious matter because proper equipment must be used to accomplish this. Attempting to cut or drill concrete using substandard tools could end up resulting in a big and costly problem for you. This means that you need to get your hands on some equipment that is specially designed to withstand the tremendous amount of stress that results from the prolonged drilling or cutting of concrete. Here is some advice on where to buy equipment to cut or drill concrete.

1. Have they been around long?

You do not want to give your business to just anybody. Simply buying your concrete cutting or drilling equipment from the first company you come across that sells what you are looking for would be a huge mistake. It is important to know exactly who you are doing business with. Do not be in such a hurry to make your purchase. The small details that you discover could potentially save you from having some rather large headaches in the future. Ideally, you should only buy your equipment from a company that has been around for at least three years. If a company can survive for that length of time, that should tell you a great deal about their commitment to the satisfaction of their customers.

2. Do they sell the best brands?

Many people buy brands of concrete cutting or drilling equipment that they are not familiar with. They do this because of the cheap price. Unfortunately for them, you get what you pay for in the construction equipment industry. When a price seems absurdly low, there is usually a very good reason for it. In the vast majority of cases, the quality of these inexpensive pieces of equipment is very low. They have a tendency to break down more frequently. The better brands will cost more. However, they are well worth it. You can find a good selection of core drill motors at

3. What is their return policy?

You will need to use the equipment in order to tell if it will be able to handle the work that you need to perform. Therefore, you need to find out the store’s return policy before you buy anything. Make sure they will take back slightly used equipment.

6 Tips for Buying Pumps

If you’re in need of a pump, you might be a little overwhelmed by all the choices on the market. The good news is that it’s easier to make a shortlist than you may think. Here are just six tips for finding, buying and utilizing your newest pump.

1. Know Your Project Requirements

Do you need pumps for a residential home or industrial processing plant? Do you want pumps of a certain size, shape or bend? Have you considered things like liquid volume requirements or internal injection systems? These details are all things you should have worked out in advance.

2. Read Reviews

Sometimes your dream pump is actually a dud. By reading customer reviews, however, you can figure this out before you go to all the trouble of buying and unpacking it. Learn from the mistakes of others and use their knowledge to make a smart purchase decision for yourself.

3. Give Yourself a Price Range

The cost of a pump can run you much higher than its listed price. Think about things like shipping, installation, insurance and maintenance costs. Think about any add-ons or upgrades you might want in the future. Incorporate all of these expenses into your budget so there are no unpleasant surprises down the line.

4. Research the Manufacturer

How long have they been in business? Have they ever supplied parts for any big-name companies or retailers? Do they have glowing customer testimonials on their website? Never buy a pump without evaluating the pump seller first.

5. Get a Warranty

Warranties can be absolutely critical if your pump purchase doesn’t turn out the way you expected. So ask yourself questions like “will I get a full or only partial refund of my money?” or “will I need to pay return shipping costs in the event of a product defect?”

6. Talk to Pump Experts

If you have any questions about the pump-buying process, don’t be afraid to reach out to professionals. The customer service hotline of a pump manufacturer might be able to help you, and you can also contact local plumbers or homeowners associations.

These are just six things to consider when buying a pump. If you want to make the right decision the first time, use these tips to narrow down your search and eventually find the pump that’s right for you. You can also browse this listing of pump products by clicking here.

DQ at SM City Lucena

Dairy Queen (DQ) finally opened a month ago here at SM City Lucena. I was so excited that I wrote a post  even the store isn’t yet opened. Finally Lucenahin can enjoy the delicious taste of DQ products. Too bad I didn’t see the opening of the store and really clueless when will it happen. Well, the store opened last September 25 and I went to the mall after that day. I thought it was the opening day but the staff informed me that it was already their second day. It’s been a month and I hope DQ will stay as long as SM City Lucena is here, hahah! Hope many will patronize the store because of their luscious soft-served ice cream and with the way they served up side down is different from other ice cream stores. Looks like I have big loved for DQ, lol!.

The store is not big in fact it is located under the stair but
I think better place because many are passing in that area of the mall.

I saw my sister-in-law in one of the banks at the mall and asked her to taste DQ if haven’t tried. She was too kind to treat me a strawberry banana blizzard. This was the second purchased from DQ. The first was with my daughter and if I remember right she ordered chocolate with kitkat (hope I’m right). It’s important to bring camera all the time so nothing will be missed, hahah!

Preparing for a Successful Industrial Project

Major construction projects require the use of specialty equipment. When it is your job to make sure all of this equipment shows up to the job site, you may wonder if it would be feasible for you to partner with a company that specializes in delivering, setting up, and inspecting such necessities. You can establish such a partnership by going online to the website and discovering what services and benefits the company can offer you. You can also check out your options for equipment like overhead bridge cranes that you and your crew can use to carry out the work safely and efficiently.

If your company does not already have such large equipment in its possession, you will need to partner with a company that sells this machinery. When you purchase the machinery from the company, you can have it delivered safely to your job site. Delivering such a massive piece of equipment requires permits and knowledge of local transportation laws that may be more than what your crew is prepared to handle. By dealing with the company online, you can have the equipment brought to your location safely and in a timely manner.

The company can also set up the equipment for you, ensuring that it will be safe to use and also set up in a way that abides with local safety laws. The permit that your company has for the project may require that the crane be set up so many feet away from the road, for example. Rather than risk setting up the crane in a way that violates the permit, you can allow a professional equipment handler to take care of this task for you.

If you do choose to set up the equipment, you may need to have it inspected prior to using it. When you want a fast and thorough inspection, you can find out about this service online. The business has inspectors who can come to your job site to look at the gear that you have set up and ready to use. They can tell you what has to be changed and what you must do to use the equipment safely. The company also has parts available in case you need to make repairs to any of the crane equipment that you are using for the job. You can find out more by going online.
