Lao Xie Zhen Premium Beetroot Essence by Hao Yi Kang

Looking for a boost of nourishment but hate bitter tasting products like ginseng or chicken essence? Then you’ve got to try Lao Xie Zhen’s Premium Beetroot Essence! Exclusively distributed by Hao Yi Kang, Lao Xie Zhen is a well-known and trusted brand in Taiwan for more than 80 years.

Ppl are usually quite skeptical about supplements and wellness products such as these but trust me, this will change your mind!

About Product

Lao Xie Zhen’s Premium Beetroot Essence helps to promote metabolism, improves digestion and the best part, it aids with anti-aging! Rich in 3 types of plant polyphenols, this well-known supplement also helps to improve skin complexion and promotes natural collagen production within the body. These polyphenols are extracted at a constant 80 degrees to ensure that no nutrients are lost!

With two other main ingredients, hawthorn and figs, there is no earthy or bitter beetroot taste. It tastes sweet and sour that even children love it too! It’s 100% natural without any preservatives, additives and colouring.

A unification of 3 amazing superfoods, you are sure to see improvements to your circulatory system and restores your vitality.

Suitable for vegetarians and highly recommended for office ladies, individuals with dull skin problems and individuals with insufficient greens intake.

Have officially added this into my supplement regime and I have been taking 1 pack after my meals. I’ve also managed to rope in my mother on the regime and we are both hooked on it’s taste and its effects!

Preparation Method

My preferred method is to pour a cup of boiling water and place a packet of the beetroot essence in the cup for a few minutes. Once the essence is warmed up, simply pour it out into another empty cup and enjoy!

However, you may also drink directly from the packet at room temperature or chilled!

Do consume it after a meal (after all, it helps with digestion!)

A box of 7 packs is sold at $35 only, so improve your well-being and achieve anti-ageing the natural way today! You may purchase via their online store or from their retail partners, Lao Jiang Superior Soup Restaurant.

Help Floral Garage Singapore to save shelter dogs!

Calling all dog lovers! If you’ve always got a soft spot for flowers and dogs, join me in doing our part to support shelter dogs. Flower Garage Singapore has collaborated with OSCAS, an animal welfare shelter in Singapore to launch Doggy2 ($49.90). Part of the proceeds from this product will be donated to OSCAS to help support their shelter dogs.

Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter (OSCAS) is a charity and non-profit dog shelter that has been in existence since 2006. All the dogs in the shelter are mongrels rescued from the streets or from being culled.

A total of more than 110 mongrels currently call this shelter home and needless to say, it can only be sustained with help from trusty volunteers and kind donations or sponsorships.

Look at those puppy eyes! They are definitely calling out to me. This is the perfect gift for a dog lover!

Do note that the flowers used in each arrangement may be slightly different. As you can see, I received one with pink roses but the pictures on their website used a mix of orange and yellow roses. Nonetheless, both look equally pretty and cheery.

Help these shelter dogs and give them a second chance! Lend a hand, save a paw :’)

Thank you Floral Garage Singapore for sending this flower arrangement over!

Little Flower Hut: NEW Vase Flower Arrangements

little flower hut

Hey everyone, I’m finally back to writing on this space! Had to take a break for a while as I finally *gasp* graduated and landed my first job! It hasn’t been easy, trying to assimilate and learn the ropes along the way but I’m glad to finally be productive and contribute to a larger cause. Hopefully through my work, I can make lotsa of tourists happy and help them to better enjoy Singapore as a tourist destination!

Since I’ve started working, I’ve developed a new love for plants. It can get really stressful at the workplace and I believe that having desk plants would perk me up a ‘lil. Looking at the green parts also offer a much-needed respite for my eyes.

Therefore, I was delighted to know that Little Flower Hut was pushing out new vase flower arrangements! Absolutely love that they incorporated succulents, anyone else thinks succulents are so cute and fat and adorbz???

I gifted it to my mom cause it was her birthday week! I think as much as ladies say that flowers are so unpractical and a waste of money, no one can deny the happiness that it brings when looking at fresh blooms and greens.

w Mom (LFH)

Would like to make special mention to their Birthday Cake Flower arrangements (which literally look like cakes) and their Happy Hour Flowers that are arranged in martini glasses for your alcoholic friend! Really innovative ways to arrange flowers and it will definitely be a pleasant surprise for your recipient.

Send love with Little Flower Hut today!

Not only do they offer 24/7 customer service, Little Flower Hut even throws in FREE same day flower delivery as long as you order before 4pm! If you’re looking for a bargain, check out their weekly picks for $50 nett. They do have a few designs below $50 as well so that you can show your love without breaking the bank!

To date, Little Flower Hut has served over 5,000 customers and their deliveries are 99% on time so you can definitely trust them.

Have fun flower shopping and have a great weekend ahead!

Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar @ Clarke Quay

With 4 blocks of food and nightlife entertainment, Clarke Quay is definitely Singapore’s most happening spot. Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar is the new kid on Block A. Although there is a wide variety of dining options located in Clarke Quay, the bosses of Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar noticed that no one was serving up some addictive Sichuan-style skewers to feed hungry, drunk souls after their night of partying. Therefore, Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar was born. Not only can you expect a wide array of barbecued meat prepared with Sichuan spices, feast on a soul-comforting bowl of lamian as well.

Beef Noodles in Beef Broth ($ )

Really liked that the broth was flavourful but not too oily.

The texture of the noodles were just nice too.

An assortment of skewers – beef, pork, chicken, mutton

Mega love for the ones served with garlic!

For all skewers, you can choose between the spicy or non-spicy option. I’m not good at eating spicy food but I enjoyed the Sichuan spices on top because the spice level was just nice for me.

Warning! These skewers are highly addictive and a match made in heaven when you pair them with a beer. Many patrons from neighbouring bars and restaurants even order in and bring over the skewers from Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar to enjoy at the bar of their choice. So don’t fret if you can’t get a seat at Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar, because they understand that seating capacity is rather limited.

You’d notice that all your skewers will be placed on this grill box which serves to keep your skewers warm. Sadly tho, it is not a charcoal grill. It just uses the flames of 3 small tealight candles.

Mid-joint chicken wings 

Perennial favourite – can’t go wrong with chicken wings.

Scallops

There’s 2 options available on the menu, with and without shell.

Eggplant 

For all eggplant lovers, you’d definitely enjoy this dish.


Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar

Next time you walk by, do pop in and I assure you won’t regret!

YOTEL Singapore

YOTEL bed

Last month, I finally checked out YOTEL Singapore and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience there! Definitely one of the better staycations I’ve been to, I love how YOTEL is aeroplane/spaceship themed. Not only does it mean futuristic vibes, expect space efficiency like their reclining beds! Although the cabin may look small at first, the high ceilings make up for it so that you don’t feel claustrophobic. And of course, there’s that gorgeous city view that you can look out at while you’re showering.

Here’s a closer look at the Premium Queen View Cabin!

YOTEL - Queen with View Cabin

Notice how the bottom of the bed has a gap large enough for your luggage.

The bed is YOTEL’s Signature SmartBed™ with Serta cool action gel memory foam mattress (sounds cheem) but just know that it is SUPER comfortable and perfect for watching shows on the 40″ tv and sleeping (of course).

As you can see, you can shower whilst looking out towards the city! Definitely a new and interesting experience. I was on one of the highest floors so I wasn’t really worried that anyone would see me.

YOTEL

YOTEL provides quality shower amenities by Urban Skincare so you don’t have to fret about using your own! Some hotels provide really low quality ones that make your hair dry as grass, but I assure you that you will experience no such thing at YOTEL.

Other great things about the cabin include

  • Free super-fast WiFi and free calls within Singapore (perfect for business travellers and for contacting loved ones back home)
  • Hairdryer, iron and ironing board
  • Technowall with mood lighting (If you scroll back up, you’d notice those purple lights along the bed)
  • Electronic laptop safe
  • 63 channels to watch the latest movies, premium TV shows and the best sports action in full HD

There are many other hidden secret compartments in the room that I’d leave you guys to find, no fun if I spill all the beans yeah?

Let’s go for a tour in the rest of the hotel!

YOTEL - Lobby

This is the lobby, otherwise referred to as Mission Control. All the desktops you see on the left, allow hotel guests to do self check in and check out. This really reduces your waiting time as you do not need to see a counter staff (unless you’re facing some issues). The standard check-in time is any time after 2pm and check-out is any time before 12pm.

YOTEL - Robots

Almost definitely my favourite feature of the hotel, YOTEL has their own robots, Yoshi and Yolanda! If you want them to visit you at your room and see them in action, simply call Mission Control and ask the robots to send up an extra towel or other amenities.

Yolanda sings while she’s leaving your room, super cute for a IG video! The kids love them too.

YOTEL - Pool

Find some time to chill beside the pool or go for a swim!

YOTEL - Pool Dusk

I swear it looks even prettier at night.

Grains & Hops - Entrance

The pool is located just beside Grains and Hops, YOTEL’s restaurant and bar. Breakfast is served here too!

YOTEL - Breakfast Setup Close Up

As YOTEL is located right in the heart of the city, along Orchard Road; there are plenty of food options down the street. However, if you’re looking to eat in YOTEL, try the Angus Beef at Grains and Hops.

Grains & Hops - Roasted Angus Beef

For the adrenaline junkies and hardcore gym fanatics, YOTEL also has a smashing gym! You’d find the gym opposite the restaurant.

The wall decor is great for a post-workout photo too!

YOTEL - Gym Angle

Basic but sufficient to keep your body pumped up.


 

Well that’s the end of my tour for you!

If you’re really enticed and wanna book a YOTEL stay for yourself, stay 3 nights or more and enjoy 15% off!

As they always say, the early bird catches the worm. Book early and enjoy attractive discounts too.

Sign up as a member and enjoy exclusive perks! The membership is free, with instantaneous benefits.

  • Unlock an extra 15% off your room bookings with YOTEL membership, available on no other booking sites.
  • Complimentary high speed WiFi
  • Free local calls
  • 20% discount at Grains & Hops
  • Best rate promise

I can’t wait to be back already!

Show Your Love With Floral Garage!

Floral Garage

Flowers – do we really need a special occasion before we can gift them?

Although often deemed as a waste of money by those who are more “realistic”, it is no doubt that they put a smile on the receiver’s face. Blooms never fail to brighten up someone’s day and can effortlessly transform a space. From dull to full of life, from boring to artistic.

I love how flowers are used to show how much the sender is thinking about you. The sender spent that money, just to see the smile on your face. And I think that moment, that thought, that love, is priceless.

Although fresh flowers will probably always be popular, I am really welcoming the trend of dried flowers or preserved flowers because they can last for a much longer time! This makes dried / preserved flowers not only ideal for decorating spaces, they can also be used and reused constantly as photography props (hehehe). The Enchanted Rose is a preserved red rose in a jar, resembling the one in Beauty and the Beast! It can last for up to 1 year and if kept in its casing, up to 10 years; making your every penny worth!

Other specialities include the veggie bouquet (https://floralgaragesg.com/product/delightful-vegetables/) that can be eaten later (perf for the practical mummy), as well as one of the lowest priced freestyle bouquets at $34.90 only! (https://floralgaragesg.com/product/r00-freestyle-bouquet/).

Get your flowers from Floral Garage today!

Although there are many florists in Singapore to choose from, it is important to purchase from a florist that is reliable, provides great customer service and maintains high quality in their floral products.

I’m sure that many of you are aware of florist boo-boos whereby Valentine’s Day was messed up due to late deliveries, or mix-ups in the orders. Here’s the article by Mothership, summarizing that unfortunate event.

Entrust Floral Garage’s dedicated and talented team that will provide efficient flowers delivery service! You may contact them for same day floral delivery and urgent bouquets as well.

They even offer floral subscription services, allowing you to pre-plan your orders within the next few months. This can be done on a regular schedule (eg. once a week, once a month) or based on occasions (like anniversaries and birthdays). Never forget a special date again! Floral Garage even calls you one week beforehand as a reminder of the special day and also to check if you’d like any changes to be made. Feel free to customize your bouquet to add that personal touch. A 3 month subscription plan would cost $200, with free delivery on the first order. You’d also receive credits which can be used to offset future purchases.

More than just flowers

Floral Garage also sells party supplies like banners and buntings, helium balloons, party ware and more, making them a one-stop solution for all your party needs.

Check out their flower gift baskets and hampers as well! You’d be happy to know that there is free delivery for all hamper purchases.

They also sell a range of soft toys and terrariums. Terrariums are minimalistic and space-efficient, allowing you to decorate your room or desk without taking up too much room. Terrariums are also really easy to care for, making them ideal for the busy Singaporean in you.

Giving back to society

Last but not least, what I like the most about Floral Garage is that they make it a point to give back to society. Their most recent give-back was held on International Womens’ Day (8 March) where they held a non-profit floral arrangement workshop for low-income women and mummies.

Over the years, Floral Garage has also raised funds for animal shelters and donated materials for flag days.

It is always nice to support a socially-conscious brand, especially local ones! #supportlocal

With this I say, show them you love them with Floral Garage.

For a night of magic, dance and splendour,
don’t miss Gateway Theatre’s The Nutcracker!

Get ready to be enchanted and enthralled with the Fascinating Retelling of The Nutcracker!
A Brand new take on an old Christmas classic, The Nutcracker features enchanting magical performances by local artists; incorporating captivating music, dance, special effects and magic!!! 

Produced and presented by Gateway Entertainment and P’Art 1 Design, The Nutcracker will transport you into a magical world of the timeless classic. Now seen through a different lens, The Nutcracker offers a unique and fresh experience; a one-of-a-kind treat for the senses.  The performance will infuse spectacular magic, special effects, video animation, and costumes (my fav part!!) that will capture your imagination and bring this wonderful tale to life.

The magical, theatrical production is directed by Fan Dong Kai, who incorporates world-class illusions performed by award-winning illusionists and father-daughter duo Lawrence and Priscilla Khong. This is the first time the magic duo is staging a performance that has no narration or dialogue, and will rely solely on the art of magic, dance and state-of-the-art technology to tell the story. It will also combine classical music arranged in a modern style by renowned music director Kenn C.

The retelling of the old Christmas classic will be the largest scale performance to be held at Gateway Theatre to date with an international dance troupe of 14 dancers and over 50 backstage production crew. The Nutcracker promises to take you on a magical adventure, that will dazzle your senses and touch your heart along the way.

​Here are some sneaks to the show!

Overall, I give props to the team behind the Nutcracker for the breath-taking set design and really amazing costumes that added so much more to the show! I could tell that the kids in the crowd really enjoyed themselves and were captivated at every twist and turn.

(Although I do wish that the plot could have been stronger and the magic tricks newer/more refreshing)

Nonetheless, some great work put up by our local artistes that we should support!
