This Florist in Singapore Is A Flower Heaven

I had the chance to receive flowers from a friend last week, which is how I got acquainted with A Better Florist – a Singaporean florist that doesn’t resemble any other florist I have ever shopped from. The first impression was indescribable, because the flowers were so beautiful I thought they must have come from a luxurious company that can’t possibly be in Singapore. But then I checked, and I found that that A Better Florist makes the most beautiful flowers Singapore has ever seen.

When you go to their website, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. The best florist in Singapore has several collections of different blooms, and it’s not just about picking between roses, tulips or daffodils. It’s about the vibe of each bouquet and arrangement. They have their Signature Blooms, Farmer’s Choice, Flower Bunches and other collections. Flowers are beautifully presented in modern mason jars, and elegant burlap wrapping, and each flower creation has a special feel to it. It really is a world where there’s no flower that you can’t find.

Planning A 1st Birthday Party

How To Plan A 1st Birthday Party

Who knew that planning a child’s first birthday party can be such a headache! There’s the guest list, the food, decoration, cake, giftbags, backdrop, location etc etc.. and not to mention the standards that a new mum like me have to live up to in this day and age!

Have you guys seen recent birthday parties being held? The numerous helium balloons(which are not cheap!), the RM500 fondant designer cake, the dessert station, the party accessories, goodie bags? It all seems a bit too much and ridiculous, and yet here i am scouting for all these things. I mean, a mum only wants what’s best for her child no? And even though he probably won’t remember his first birthday party, i still want it to be the best 1st birthday party (that i can afford).

I know that there are probably many mums who are scratching their head about their kid’s first birthday, so hopefully this post will help a tiny bit in terms of planning. Here are the steps that I personally took.

No. 1- Pick A Party Date

First up for me was picking a date. Eidrix’s birthday is on the 22nd of November and it falls on a Wednesday. So i decided to have the party the weekend before. Why? i don’t know.. I just liked the idea and thought 18 was a good date. Continue Reading

This Is Why I’m Not A Landed House Person – Perks of Living in an Integrated Development

integrated living condominium shah alam

Let’s face it! You leave your house 2-3 hours earlier before work to send your baby to the childcare centre and then go through the massive jam that moves at about 20km/hr straight to work. When the day ends, you spend another 2 hours going through the same thing! But wait, you forgot to buy groceries for dinner tonight and you dread having to take a detour to the nearest supermarket so end up driving through your usual fast food restaurant (AGAIN!). Well that’s pretty much my scenario too. I’ve been looking at properties for a while now and have decided to look into integrated developments. Why? Well it seems that there’s a lot of perks living in an integrated development and here are just some of them which i think would suit someone in the same shoes as i am.

1. Secured neighbourhood

I’ve never been quite a fan of landed properties. Partly because i just feel safer in a gated community with security officers on duty 24/7 and the added security of using access cards to enter your home.

2. Numerous facilities available in close proximity

An integrated development means that it is a mix of commercial and residential development. Depending on the development, some would have connection to a mall, grocery store and other shops as well as offices or even schools.

3. Less time wasted on the road

Because the development has all the facilities mentioned above, it makes life easier by not having to drive out all the time and get stuck in massive jams. Continue Reading

Old Or Unwanted Bras Needed From You For This Reason!

Pink October is almost coming to an end, but there’s still a chance for you to do your part and help a woman in need. Neubodi, a Malaysian lingerie specialist brand officially launched its month-long “DONATE. SUPPORT. RECYCLE” Bra Drive campaign which will run until 5th November, to raise funds for Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia’s “Hospital Angels” initiative.

This campaign is really dear to me because I do have a number or family members and friends who are going through or have gone through breast cancer. So donating my old bra to help raise funds for this cause is really the least i can do to support. And you can do the same too! All you have to do is drop-off your unwanted or used bras in Neubodi’s “Bra Banks” at any of their stores nationwide and they will donate gently-used items to victims of sex trafficking, enabling their rehabilitation into society as they earn a livelihood selling second-hand bras.

There’s A New Mall in Kajang & Dinosaurs Are Involved Too!

Last Sunday I was invited to the launch of De Centrum Mall in Kajang. Since it only took me about 20 minutes from Puchong, I was more than happy to witness the official opening of the little quaint mall which is part of the growing community of De Centrum City by Protasco Bhd. Of course I just had to bring my two boys with me, it was family day (Sunday) after all.

The neighbourhood mall is part of Phase 1 of De Centrum City which will include a hotel, a convention centre, office towers and luxury condominiums to be completed in the next 10 to 15 years. So there’s definitely more to look forward to.
