Our bust are beautiful in different shapes & sizes but what are unsightly & need to be improved? Saggy & unhealthy looking ones.
Celebrations can start from homes and we will find ways to create new memories with our love ones for all our special occasions.
2020 is EPIC. We lived half a year like a lifetime and get the longest weekends that we always wanted. Since COVID 19 hit us, the virus has morphed into a globally pandemic that has changed the way we live and interact with one another.
We now face new norms of socializing and this makes me cherish the company of my loved ones even more. Celebrations should start from our safer home and from there, we can begin to find ways to create new memories for all our special occasions.
With National Day coming this 9 August, how would you spend this special day with your loved ones? The National Day Parade (NDP) is gonna focus on Singaporeans celebrating in our homes, instead of the floating platform at Marina Bay.
That said, I’m officially a party planner for my family! And I need to find a variety of National Day themed products to make my celebration a truly memorable one!
https://partydiva.co/sg55, a collaborative e-commerce & marketplace for Gifting, Events and Party Planning came into my rescue! It is an e-commerce marketplace that brings merchants & consumers together all in one place for a seamless party planning experience.
This National Day, besides retailing their own thematic decorative, PartyDiva.Co also pulled together a roster of thematic offerings curated by some of our favorite homegrown brands! With them, I get to support local brands while feasting my tummy & eyes on their limited edition offerings.
Just a few clicks online & what I wanted got delivered to my doorstep! I love this truly Singapore experience!
Check out what I have selected from PartyDiva.Co for my National Day Celebration with my family!
1) AMICI Catering
Celebration always involves food, and this is especially true for Singaporeans since eating good food is our national hobby! AMICI Catering, a homegrown boutique caterer, offers this mini gourmet 5-course National Day Buffet ($108+) that let me pick my preferred dish for each course. This set can feed up to 7 people.
Check out their exclusive National Day menu offerings of up to 15 different dishes for selection – I had a hard time deciding myself. The specially designed menu is a hearty East-meets-West fusion repertoire that tastes just as good as it sounds!
The mini buffet came in microwaveable boxes, with plates, utensils, serviettes & plastic table cloth too. All of these are placed neatly in a heat insulated bag to keep the food warm while I prepare and doll up for my celebratory meal.
I always relish a freshly made gourmet meal and I simply adored what I have chosen here. The Garlic Fried Rice with Chicken Floss & Spring Onion, Oven-baked Cajun Style Basa Fish with Peppers and Mixed Vegetables Cutlets are so delicious!
This National Day Set comes with a complimentary 6” Raspberry Lychee Rose Cake too, concluding the meal on a sweet note. Nice one!
And if you think a complimentary cake doesn’t taste good, you are wrong. This cake from AMICI Catering is fantastic! Moist, soft and fluffy – every mouthful is decked with juicy lychee & perfumed with a delicate rose fragrance, super delish!
2) Nasi Lemak Indulgence
Greedy me saw this & I know I must have it! National Day MUST HAVE a national dish for celebration right? YES! OMG this limited edition savory 8-inch Nasi Lemak Cake ($132) from Nasi Lemak Indulgence is the bomb! Taking a leaf from grandma’s old recipe book, Nasi Lemak Indulgence re-created the traditional Nasi Lemak with their very own twist.
One bite of the ‘cake’ packs the burst of the combinative flavors that makes the Nasi Lemak a true Singaporean favorite. I 10000% recommend you to get this if you are a true nasi lemak lover with a taste of nostalgia & want to impress your love ones!
This beautiful cake is here to tantalize our tastebuds while representing our ethnic groups with the variety of specially selected ingredients.
The seasoned sambal topped with Goreng Tempeh, anchovies peanuts in Kicap Manis is meant as a symbolic gesture towards the Malay in Singapore. Likewise, the Papadum is a nod to our Indian community, accompanied with Fried Shrimp Paste Chicken and Blue Pea Rice as a token for the Chinese & Peranakan in Singapore.
Artfully pieced together as one, the cake presents itself as a representation of celebration, not just for good food and great times, but for the diversity that makes Singapore such a special place for us. From meaning to flavor, this has got everything I want in a satisfying nasi lemak meal – now I can have my cake and eat it!
Cut this up like a cake and served! It is pretty easy to cut but difficult for me because I felt really bad ‘destroying’ it.
I reckon this cake can cut up to 10 big slices though there are only 8 chicken wings. Even without the chicken wings, rest assured it will still be highly satisfying for everyone.
Nasi Lemak Indulgence freshly makes their cakes and the cake was warm when it arrived at my place. The thick layers of eggy omelette, chunky otah and yummy blue pea coconut rice go so well together with the sweet & spicy sambal to add a touch of tang to the symphony of flavors. Even the cucumber slices by the side taste so good! The bottle of papadum that comes with the cake adds crunch to the cake too.
3) Kueh Ho Jiak
National Day celebration also means having heritage food right? My family loves nonya kueh and decided to get the award winning Kueh Ho Jiak for snacks.
Kueh Ho Jiak is famous for their varying rendition of traditional kuehs with aesthetics that go in line for any festive celebration or trend – all without the use of artificial colorings.
Their handmade kuehs are also popular because they can be customized to suit different occasions & celebrations. Look at these beautifully designed ones for their National Day Celebratory Platter ($37.50) here, so pretty & patriotic right?
This platter has red & white kuehs representing the Singapore flag, 6 mini png kuehs (rice cake), 5 kueh lapis and 4 Merlion ang ku kuehs (with grated coconut fillings) plated beautifully on fragrant pandan leaves. All of these are also vegan with no eggs used.
4) Three Wisemen
By now, most people know I love my alcohol and a celebration is not considered as one unless it comes with it. Three Wisemen tops this off with a really yummy NDP-themed cocktail, the Nana Sling! ($90, set of 5 x 120ml bottles).
Nana Sling is a seasonal Summer cocktail that requires 5 days to make. An unmistakably tropical concoction, this drink is a heady mix of lemon juice, homemade blossom water, pomegranate syrup and Brugal Rum infused with banana leaves, all combined with the intense orange flavour from shots of Cointreau. Cheers with the cute bottles!
5) Pétale Tea
What about my non alcoholic family members? Of course they are also my priority and I prepared limited-edition blooming tea from Pétale Tea for them!
As Singapore’s No.1 blooming tea expert, this National Day gift set ($65), includes their limited-edition tea “My Fair Lady”, 5 best-selling tea flavours and 2 tea glasses to complete the set! The tea glasses are really perfect for us to admire at the tea bloom before enjoying it – a complete sensory experience!
Beautiful blooming teas with tantalizing flavors & many health benefits. This drinkable art-in-the-glass is ready in just 5 to 10 mins!
A party with no decorations is no party at all! I elevated the ambiance & presentation of my sumptuous spread with PartyDiva.Co’s limited edition National Day themed bundle ($100), featuring their very own customized bunting, cupcake stand, cake and food toppers that feature Singapore icons such as the Merlion & Gardens by the Bay, as well as local slangs such as “Relax Lah” and “Shiok Ah”!

Facts about Collagen
Collagen is made up of a triple helical structure in the extracellular matrix. The most abundant form of protein in the human body, it makes up 75% of our skin and is therefore the key component towards supple and healthy radiant skin.
An important protein that forms the basic structure of skin, hair, blood vessels, cartilage and bones in the human body, collagen is essential for skin suppleness and moisture retention to maintain skin elasticity and radiance. Our body loses collagen after the age of 25 and daily replenishment is required to ensure that skin is kept healthy and youthful.
There are various sources (fish, beef, pork, chicken) where collagen may be extracted from. Clinical studies showed that fish skin and scales contain higher amounts of collagen with higher bioavailability in body than collagen from other animal sources. Fish collagen is also proven to have higher efficacy than other forms of collagen. Collagen extracted from fish scale has a higher degree of purity and is less affected by animal diseases/infections like bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease).
Collagen peptides are small bioactive peptides obtained by breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides.
New Moon uses only high-quality Fish Collagen Peptide for all collagen products. The smaller collagen molecules is known for better absorption by the body as compared to normal, bigger collagen molecules which cannot be easily digested and absorbed.
Collagen is an important constituent of connective tissues within the body. Skin, joints and hair all contain collagen. Regular supplementation of collagen sees benefits to the abovementioned parts of the body and retards aging of the body.
Take these regularly and be beautiful!
