Summer in the Philippines is about to end. But swimmers and pool lovers can still go swimming anytime they want as long as there is no low pressure. Unlike in the Western countries, commercial and even residential pools have raypak heaters. From the name itself, it serves the purpose. This is common around the world. I bet a lot of people will surely love it and even businessmen will like it too because of its usefulness and durability. I’ve read in an advertisement too that raypak is a high quality pool and spa equipment. People who are devoted to quality more than quantity will certainly love it.
Architects and engineers too would suggest this to their client whenever they plan for a pool design. Everything must be complete so that it will be included in the costing.
Choosing the right kind of hinge plays an important role in business. Just like in a vending machine, every now and then, they have to refill the needed product inside it in order to cater the needs of buyers conveniently. So, as much as possible, hinges in every compartment’s door must have good quality for it moves while opening and closing. The commendable hinge in this kind of function is a stainless steel piano hinge. Piano hinge holds well too and besides, it appears neat. With this, security, durability and beauty are packed together in one setting. If the door for the coin slot is separate from the product vended, the more it needs a heavy duty piano hinge for security purposes.
Ceiling lights at The Ranch Resort, Bato, Toledo City, Cebu, Philippines. Instead of putting chandelier, they made it very creative by using a wheel like wooden thing hung with small lamps(lamparilya in Cebuano, lampara in Tagalog) around. Light comes from the bulb placed inside it. It has a different effect and maybe cheaper compared to the extravagant chandelier. The ceiling design also gives a unique concept.
This area is located at the lobby of their hotel. The door seen at the center is passage way to the restaurant and the pool and where live band is situated. From there everybody can proceed to the farm too where there are bees to look at and horses where anyone can back ride.
In the year 2001, a former colleague has given me DMC and Anchor yarn for cross stitch. I was of course happy! I haven’t tried stitching by that time yet, I didn’t try for it seems very laborious and time consuming for me and to some may be but to those who are lovers of this craft, I bet they made half a dozen or even a dozen of it.

Finally, I was able to download a complete curriculum guide and teaching guide for Drafting 1 & 2 and ICT 1 & 2. I wasn’t able to make it with several attempts since page loading usually fails.
Here’s the link if you like to have one. An adobe reader in the PC is needed in order to view the file since it is in PDF format which is commonly known as Portable Document Format.
In 2001, I enrolled again for a master’s degree and still choosing drafting as my field of specialization. The basics I have learned stays the same. Commands are still the same. Skill has improved but haven’t mastered yet since I stopped after that semester.
After eight long years of no CAD at all, I enrolled back and do the starting over again following the basics. It’s another version but commands stays the same. I just need to review what I have learned before. Drawing some easy figures to refresh my memory. At first, it feels like I am unfamiliar with things again for the third time. But thank God, I am starting to recall things and made it again.
Prior knowledge about Drafting/Drawing is an advantage. The only difference here is instead of mechanical pencil, mouse pointer and accurate commands will be applied.
The Basics of AutoCAD
Learning and familiarizing about the x and y coordinates helps a lot before layouting any drawing. Numbers from the center point of the Cartesian plane passing along the x axis to the right are of positive values. Numbers upward passing along the y axis have positive values too. While those that are located to the left and those that are located downward gives negative values.
It’s final! I’m so glad there’s sketch up that helps me layout this project. It is fast and easy to use. Though it takes sleepless nights but it’s all worth it. Sleepless nights because I actually don’t have time to do it during office hours or during daytime. The simplicity of this drawing reflects the personality of the owner. I have decided to make it simple since there are a lot of buildings and if am going to make every single detail I could not finish it before the end of the semester. Sir, it’s already late. Sorry for it took me so long to finish this.
