Tupperware still the best today- Sweet Bunny

When I was a child, my mother would take me to block parties organised by the community centre, at these events the aunties of the neighbourhood would sell Tupperware along with some tasty treats that they would bake or cook. My mother purchased a couple of food containers used them on many occasions. I will always hold such memories of my mother close to my heart as I only had about 13 years with her.

I never needed to buy my own kitchenware until I became a homeowner; I found myself needing proper, safe to use and lasting food containers. I have a cabinet in my kitchen where I store all my spices and ingredients. Many of the spices come in ready to use containers but only the salt and sugar come in plastic bags.

Storing salt and sugar-I recently purchased the Tupperware Umami Collection spice container 500ml to store my salt and sugar. , I really like the smart and intuitive design of this Tupperware store container. This spice container is airtight, the lid is easy to open and spill-proof keeping the contents fresher longer. I like my container to be clear as I can easily check at a glance the amount that is left when I prepare my grocery shopping list.

Spice spoon design –The Umami Collection spice container come with a spoon not just any spoon but one that would smartly fit at the upper part of a Tupperware, a spoon rest where the spoon’s feet cling to keeping it clean and easy to access. You wouldn’t need to use your fingers to dig out the spoon from the condiments making it more hygienic. The spoon also has double-sided measurements, perfect for cooking or baking reducing the need of retrieving another cutlery to get the measurement job done. It is also curved reaches into every corner of the container, from top to bottom - No waste!

The purple colour is vibrant are a treat for the eyes as it blends well in my blue-white kitchen well. I made a couple of labels from my brother label maker removing the hassle of guessing if it is salt or sugar. As I have four containers from the set, I used one for salt and the other three for brown and white sugar.

The Best Sink for your kitchen, Cleanup kitchen sink from Japan, Song-cho - Sweet bunny



In an Asian household, we prefer to do our dishes by hand because we find it more cost-effective, cleaner, and we don't have to go through the hassle of maintaining a machine. Also for those of us who live in apartments, the size of our apartments are small, and it would be hard to make room for one.

Speaking about washing dishes, having a good sink is essential to any kitchen, one that doesn't clog up easily with food particles to be exact.

Where can I find such a sink you say...


Best Super Silent Japanese Stedia Sink from Song-Cho - Originally we wanted the SC/SA Kitchen Sink W75cm (B Style Kitchen Sink) but the size was just too big for our kitchen counter so we settled for the Super Silent Stedia Sink SD Kitchen Sink (W65cm) instead which is retailing at S$995.00. I am glad to report it has almost been a year and we love this kitchen sink! It is easy to maintain and clean thanks to the Hydrophilic Special Ceramic Coating which makes daily cleaning a breeze. The sink also remains scratch-free because it is designed with embossing technology the stainless steel is embossed with an e-coat finish making the sink scratch resistant. Now I bet you are wondering what is silent technology, the sink has damping materials on the base and sides to form a high performing vibration control structure which ensures that the water hitting the stainless steel in a quiet manner sound test has sounded the noise produced from water hitting the sink is about 40dB which is about the amount of noise you would hear in a library.




Stream Flow technology of the Super Silent Japanese Stedia Sink – The drainage system of this sink is awesome! It is clearly designed in such a way that your food particles will be trapped in a netting object called a drain basket before the water is drained from the sink bye-bye skin clogs! Quick drainage is possible with the streamflow technology that Cleanup because uses streamflow technology which pushes the water to the drainage.

High-quality detachable detergent rack- I absolutely love the detachable detergent rack that came along with the sink, there is ample space to store all my dish cleaning accessories that drain dry. I totally detest sponge holders which don’t drain out the water making It a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. I can just simply detach the rack and clean it as and when I need too I have a separate sponge to clean my sink and its accessories so I would reach for that and clean the rack once a week with dish detergent.

My sink was installed by Hosen from Swiss Interior who was very meticulous when it came to measurements so I provided him with the sinks plans which I got from calling up Song-Cho to fit my custom made kitchen counters. Hosen is very experienced and I didn’t have to tell him what a housekeeper at my workplace taught me, that you should never make your sink flush with your countertop instead create a slight step above it so that you won’t have water slashing over the sink when in use this is called an under-mount sink.
