Generally, any multi-storey residential building is called an “apartment”. However, more and more terms are being thrown about to describe what is traditionally called an apartment: condos, serviced apartment, SOHO, SOFO, SOVO and etc. This result is that terminology between apartment, condominium and serviced apartment has been distorted over the years.
A condominium is an apartment that has facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, multi-purpose hall, etc. While an apartment or a condominium that is built on commercial land is differentiated with the term serviced apartment.
So, what are the differences between a condominium and a serviced apartment? Read on to find out.
A flower bouquet is an appropriate gift to give on any occasion, but a flower bouquet from Little Flower Hut I bought a few days ago is absolutely one of the most beautiful and special gifts I ever gave myself. I bought flowers to simply make myself happy because i simply love fresh flowers. I read some articles on flowers that convince me to buy one myself, and I’m really happy that I did.
I came across Little Flower Hut from their Instagram (@littleflowerhutsg). They have such a HUGE collection of flowers in pretty arrangements. I was excites to get one and immediately went to their website (they provided the link to the website on their Instagram too). There are so many flowers to choose from, and I was kind of having a hard time deciding on one. But I finally decided on a bouquet of Sunflowers since they are really bright and loud just like me. Haha! Continue reading
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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.
