Last Minute Christmas Shopping Online in Singapore - Sweet Bunny


It is after retail hours and you just realized that you need to get a certain someone a gift for Christmas. When panic starts to arise, take a deep breath and take comfort because there is always the World Wide Web you could turn to.

When time is in the crunch the best option is to purchase from a local and reliable online store. Zalora and Redmart are the 2 sites which I frequent and found them to be both reliable and value for money. They both have consignments with popular brands and carry a wide range of products.


Redmart is she serious? Don’t they just sell groceries as they advertised?

Why I shop on Redmart -Yes, they are mainly a grocer but as I said earlier they have consignments with a couple of baths, perfume, makeup, stationery etc companies.

A wide range of gift ideas - The range is pretty impressive, there is a good selection of toys for the kids, perfumes or bath products for the adults. Nice mugs that would make good gifts for office colleagues.

Shop for your drugstore makeup - Being able to purchase drug-store make up such as la girls concealers, wet and wild eyeshadow is a treat for me, just a click away, I can even buy my groceries as well as my make up in the evenings when I get back from work. I also love the fact that you can arrange the time they deliver your items, just got back from work no problem, your items will be arriving shortly how awesome is that?

Why the HP Sprocket Printer is the best birthday gift - Sweet Bunny

Thai Super Bowl - Everyday Thai Food

Update: They have sadly closed down.
If you are a fan of spicy and sour food, Thai food would be at the top of your list. Thai Superbowl opened its door at the beginning of April 2017. As the name of the establishment suggests it serves delicious Thai food at very reasonable prices. Best known for its enormous pans of seafood tom yum, it is no surprise that comes lunch or dinner time, lines of crowds would snake down the pathway leading to the entrance.






Their signature dish may be the tom yum seafood but what really tickles my fancy is their other dishes as I have a tendency to enjoy the staple food. On the menus, starters include fried chicken wings, spring rolls, mango salad, chicken and tom yum soup. Thai red and green curries are also available a la carte as well as pad thai, fried rice. Under the supermeal category, there are several selections of rice sets comprising meats, fish, and vegetables. You can complete a Thai meal without drinks and dessert, can you?  Thai ice tea, ice lemon tea, and lemongrass tea.Dessert only comprises of mango sticky rice at of $4.00!







It might be a no-frills cafe where you have to make your order and settle your payment at the counter but it's bright and neat atmosphere keeps me coming back whenever I have a craving for Thai food. Apologies for the lack of photos, The food was so good I forgotten to snap a photo or two, will update as soon as I am able to. 

The American Housewife who I Can't Get Enough Of.

I am sick and tired of shows that are overly dramatic, full of sexual scenes and downright scandalous.... Sometimes one has to question ... Where have all the good scriptwriters gone?

After a busy day at work, Double W is what I crave, Double W in my dictionary is Wholesome and Witty. A show that perks up my spirit and tickles my funny bone is all I seek. American housewife the sitcom by ABC answer my need for a refreshing wholesome comedy. 




1st and only Rabbit Cafe in Bangkok - Rabbito Cafe

Rabbits are one of the most adorable creatures that walk the earth, with those pointy ears and fluffy tails who could resist them? I have always liked rabbit but to be honest I have never interacted with one.

After looking up on interesting cafes in Bangkok, Rabbito cafe immediately caught my attention. Thanks to trip advisor and google map the cafe was easy to locate. I  conducted a background check on the welfare of the animals before I patronise the cafe and am proud to report that the rabbits are very well taken care of, with a regular visit to the vet. Proper hygiene and cleanliness was also reported in reviews given online by visitors.

The entrance of the cafe is very enchanting, it felt as if I was transported to Beatrix Potter's world of Peter Rabbit. The English garden theme was delightful. If you are heading down to the cafe may I suggest that you do so on a weekday so you may have these fluffy darlings all to yourself? Try to avoid weekends and public holidays the cafe is packed as it has gained popularity with both local and tourist alike.

MKUP Real Complexion Cream, Does it works as it claims ?

The MKUP brand is hyped thanks to its hilarious and persuasive marketing videos. What caught my attention was the real complexion cream, coined as The "Lazy girl's beauty hack! Instant luminous dewy glow" which claims to be the only make up you need, with the ability to cover all your flaws like dark eye circles and pimples being an all in one cream. Curious I bought a 30ml bottle to see if it was as great as it claims to be.

Siloamxperience Outreach Limited

Back in July, I popped by Siloamxperience Outreach Limited to donate some items. I got to know about this organisation thru Facebook when I chanced upon their post requesting for old water bottles and school bags for the children in Cambodia. The response was phenomenal; you could say that the post went viral, there were enough for 2 schools instead of one; it really warms your heart when you think of all the children who will benefit from this collection.


Planning a 30th birthday celebration



 I celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday a couple of weeks ago, in my earlier post ( How we spent my boyfriends #30th Birthday) I wrote about how we spent his special day. For every event and occasion, preparation and organisation are required. I instantly knew that the butterfly park and insect kingdom would be a hit with him because of his love of these live creepy crawlies.

In this day and age where apps are the rage, these applications offer a wide range of products and services. I was very thankful that I stumbled upon the weekend go where app, as the name suggested it is an app that has a comprehensive list of the attractions and places of interest in Singapore and the South-East Asian region. The best part about the app is the discounted prices of the tickets! Some of the attractions are at up to $10.00 off.  That's a steal!

If you prefer to use the computer to coordinate the booking of your tickets you may proceed to their website. https://www.weekendgowhere.sg/


What Is A Bed Wedge Used For ?




I have a loved one who has a heart condition, who recently had trouble sleeping due to the cause of breathlessness when lying flat on the bed. Stacking a bunch of pillows or sitting up to sleep caused, even more, discomfort and was not a good solution to his sleep problems.

Value Dollar store in Singapore has a great selection of drinks - Sweetbunny

As the title of this post suggests, My rare finds are of the beverage category.


First is my all time favourite Nestea Thai Ice Tea, I  usually have to bring this in when I am in Thailand or make my purchase at Golden Mile Complex, now that it is sold in Value Dollar it saves me the hassle and I could enjoy my favourite drink.

How We Spent My Boyfriend's 30th Birthday

It was a blessing that my darling's reservist ended before his birthday, which happens to fall on the weekend.



First stop was lunch we took a cable car ride up Mount Faber to the scenic Faber Peak, Spuds & Aprons was where we had our afternoon feast. The restaurant was having the Lagi Shiok! Buddy Combo Promotion  August & September 2017, we decided that the deal which comprises of an appetizer of the chili crab in a tux which was actually crab meat with potato, an entree of either lobster Hokkien noodles or Lobster Laksa and a delightful dessert of Chempedak bread & butter. There was even a deal for 2 glasses of Singapore Sling at $16.00.



Sony in-ear headphones

If you are in search for a good set of quality, durable and yet inexpensive pair of in-ear headphones, I am glad to tell you that you are not asking for the heavens.

Being a musicophile I enjoy plugging into tunes when on the go, even during lunch time on a work day you could catch me brisk walking and rock out to my playlist. During the gyming sessions, I grew a liking to listening to Adrian Bryant, he keeps me motivated.


As with all things material with excessive use, wear and tear happen. I have used many brands of in-ear headphones and found that the ones from Sony were the most affordable and durable.


Retailing at $13.90, the Sony E9LP is a musicophile's dream come true.

DIY Dental Care ? Use Charcoal Powder With Caution - Sweet Bunny

On social media, I have seen a vast amount of DIY dental kits and hacks. Promoting whitening and cleaning products. Having worked in the dental industry for 6 years when I was younger. I tend to get sceptical about such products and methods, do they cause more harm than good?

Let me start with the anatomy of a tooth, a tooth is made of many layers the topmost layer is called the enamel. The enamel is the hardest part of the tooth it is translucent and you can see light through it. The main portion of the tooth is dentine which provides the tooth with its natural colour which may be grey or yellowish so our teeth are not naturally white but come in a variety of shades.

Dettol antiseptic cream - Is simply the best

Dettol is a very well known household brand of disinfectants.A vast range of products under the Dettol branding umbrella is readily available  products such as floor cleaners, disinfectant sprays, soaps. An impressive range but my favourite product is the Dettol antiseptic cream.

The 2 in 1 function of the cream is indeed genius, disinfecting wounds and cuts while moisturising the skin.The list of ailments that the cream treat is also astounding.Bug bites , minor cuts, minor burns and skin infections.What is lovely about the product is that the cream does not carry a strong scent and the texture is not sticky gliding on to your skin an adsorbs well into the skin.

I am on the clumsier side and do get paper-cuts, glazes and even burns occasionally. This cream has always came to my aid, a must have for any first aid kit.

 It even helped my colleague's nail infection, He proclaimed that after trying so many brands of antiseptic lotions but  Dettol was the most effective. I even used it when my loved one had abrasion rashes caused by the adhesive patch of his stoma pouch rubbing against his skin. It eased the itching and healed the sores and cuts, leaving the skin around the stoma clean and smooth which is an important factor when placing back the stoma during surgery.

Dettol Antiseptic Cream is easily found in pharmacies and supermarkets. It was very affordably price of SGD $4.35 for 30g. Please read the instructions before application just to be on the safe side.

MKUP long lasting lip pen, a new favourite


 



The Facebook advertisements really paid off. I was convinced to give the lip pen a try. Though it is not as long lasting or smudge proof as most of the ads claim it to be. The product does stay on when it is dry and in contact with dry foods like bread. Once a drop of moisture from a sip of water comes into contact with the product the lip colour is transferred.

On a plus side it is long lasting, does not dries my lips and it minimises unsightly lipstick stains on glasses/cups. I cringe at the thought of lipstick markings on cutlery, spare a thought for those washing up after you when you dine out.

Certain colours do not show well on my lips, they are rather light. It doesn't help that my upper lip is a shade darker then my lower lip.

C curl Reboot at Focus Hairdressing - Chinatown Point Branch

It has been six month since I done my hair at Focus Hairdressing, sadly due to neglect and poor management. The ends of my hair were really dry.



Save Baby Daddy !

 Baby Daddy the popular television series by Freeform is going to be CANCELED  and I was very upset to hear that season 6 will be its last!

If you have journeyed through the endearing antics with the Wheeler family for the past couple of years. It is only natural that this quirky bunch would just grow on you.


How Fans Are Trying to Save ‘Baby Daddy’

Danny, Ben, Riley, Bonny & Tucker, never fail to bring on endless laughter, every episode is always interesting, Daddy !sometimes a heartwarming moral about being family or just seeing the comedic bond between these individuals just lightens up your day. Thru thick and thin they stuck by each other and help raise Emma.
Emma may I add is just adorable.Watching her transition from babyhood to toddler is just astounding. (Yes I do know she is played by different actresses ).Cancelling now when her character is developing into this wonderful witty little lady is downright dreadful. We want to watch Emma Grow -up at least let this awesome show run till season 10!

Freeform, please reconsider the cancellation, why reinvent the wheel with a crappy new series or even worst, a reality TV show, who no one cares about? Use that budget and continue with the award winning Baby Daddy. Everyone wants a quality comedy to come home to, not more dramatic misery and scandal on our tv screen/laptops.

Sign the petition and help save daddy!
