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.

Our Bralette Club body positivity bralettes in Singapore - Sweet Bunny

Bralettes have been gaining popularity over the years in Singapore, these dainty looking lacy bras which come in a vast number of designs and materials are sure a delight not only for the eyes but also comfortable for everyday use.

                                      All bodies are good bodies our bralette club

What is the difference between a Bra and a Bralette? In a nutshell, Bralettes are very different from the traditional counterparts of the everyday normal bra, which consists of more padding and underwires. A bralette consists of no wires or clasp. The similarities in both the bra and bralettes are made to provide breast support and come in different forms for different functions such as for nursing mothers.

Naturally, I would want to jump onto the bralette bandwagon after all the hype about how comfortable they were but there was an issue, you see I am between the UK size 10 and 12 and the popular vendors usually carry B cups and smaller sizes which are way too small for me either that or the bralettes are way too pricey.

Our Bralette Club Body Positive Bralette Company in Singapore – It was until I found Our Bralette Club my apprehension with the notion if bralettes were able to provide enough support for a larger breast size lady was removed. The company educated us on bralettes with their informative and eye-catching stories on Instagram and the website. I also really like the fact that they portray women of all shapes and sizes rather than the usual perfect ladies their marketing is pretty good as we normal everyday gals can find it relatable. I purchased the OBClassic Midi Bralette in L/XL and found it a great fit and comfortable however I would purchase one without the elastic straps in the front on my next purchase as it tends to pinch slightly at the front over time. Quality-wise it was very well made

I love the other designs from Our Bralette Club and would definitely make another purchase as they constantly seek ways to improve their services, such as the starter kit, where they would help you pick out the right fit and design that would suit you best.



I am so glad that I could finally get my essential undergarment in nicer designs as bigger sized cups tend to be of a much simpler design and as I recalled hearing a comedian once joked that

smaller sized bras have dainty designs like ducks daisies w
what are bigger sized bras like … bulletproof vests.

That being said hooray for brands like Our Bralette Club which produce apparel that is body positive and inclusive. Everyone is sized and shaped differently not because we are lazy and don’t exercise but it is how we were born to be. Diversity makes the world an interesting place if everyone were the same it would be a very boring world.


In case you were wondering I made my purchase from Shopee and was delighted at how fast it arrived the downside is it doesn’t carry as many designs as their website.

A heart for recycling, Han Recycling Management - Sweet Bunny

It all began with a pair of shoes that didn’t fit me well, they were brand new too good to throw out as it was only worn once before. At a loss, I kept the shoes in the cabinet for a couple of months but was irritated by the fact that it was just occupying space and not being used by someone who may need a good pair of shoes.

Due to the situation with covid-19 many thrift shops in my area have stopped collecting items but as luck would have it, I received a flyer on my gate from Han Recycling Management requesting old clothes, shoes, books, magazines, bags, luggage, plates and bowls. Normally I would just ignore such flyers as they usually are from scammers who pose as a recycling company or charitable organisation. These individuals would throw away our recyclable items in the trash and take only what was of value to sell. 

Practice recycling and reusing - I was sceptical about the company at first until I viewed its Instagram account. Mr Han, the company owner, sorts out the items that can be sent to the recycling centres to scrap from the unrecyclable stuff. For items that are still in good and working condition, he delivers them to people in need. Reusing items that are still in good condition is great for the environment because it reduces the number of trash lying in a landfill releasing toxic greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane into the environment.

                                          Han Recycling Management 

You will be surprised at the number of clothes, small electronics and kitchen essentials that are still in working condition, items which people would gladly donate. Knowing the fact that my shoes and clothes would benefit someone sets my mind at ease to pass my items to Han Recycling Management.

Kudos to Mr Han for having heart of gold, watching kids enjoying their bicycles, and seeing the needy of Singapore getting the clothing, appliances, or gadgets they require and benefiting from his good deeds really warms the heart. I can truly tell that he has a passion for his job; people might say he is just a rag and bones man just like any other company but I would differ and gladly vouch for the company. When your heart is in the right place, your actions will speak volumes of your good deeds.

Should ever I see the flyer from Han Recycling Management again I will gladly give what I can spare, the true spirit of reusing and recycling is in making full use of what you already have. For greener earth, let’s all do our part and be a more caring and considerate society.

Apologies as I didn't take a photo of the flyer so I grabbed one I found online instead, I will update with a better one the next time, a donation is requested.

Han Recycling Management  honest kind and trusted

Update: Yup I finally got my hands on the flyer because Mr Han is coming back to my area.
