Durian Delivery Right To Your Doorstep!

It’s the Durian season!!! Who’s a fan of Durians here?

Durian Delivery Singapore

With things going digital nowadays, there’s no need to go to Geylang, Balestier, Toa Payoh or where ever to have your Durian fix!

Durian Delivery Singapore

Durian Delivery Singapore brings you fresh Durians straight from the plantation in Malaysia, pack them into boxes on the same day and deliver right to your doorstep! So you can enjoy the King of Fruits within the comfort of your own home!

Royal MSW a.k.a Old Tree MSW 

I’m sure many of you are very familiar with the Mao Shan Wang variety of the Durian. And before Durian Delivery, I thought that Mao Shan Wang is about the best of Durians you can get but they have something even better! The Royal Mao Shan Wang which are harvested from old Mao Shan Wang trees, giving the fruit deeper flavors.

Soft Creamy Durian from Durian Delivery

I was sent the two varieties and was thinking in my heart, really got difference meh? Or is it just a marketing gimmick, especially since the Royal MSW variety is slightly higher in price. I tried both, and immediately decided to keep the Royal MSW to myself and shared the regular MSW with my Father, who’s like a Durian Connoisseur. 😛

But even the regular MSW from Durian Delivery garner pretty high ratings from my Father. My brother brought home some MSW from another Durian stall and it’s good but not as rich in flavor as those from Durian Delivery and the flesh is also not as soft.

But I really recommend the Royal MSW, it’s so rich in taste and just the right amount of bitter to sweet ratio! And as it’s delivered fresh right to your doorstep, it’s really soft and creamy and aromatic! You can smell the nice aroma the moment you peel off the plastic!

And I must say the price range from Durian Delivery Singapore is very reasonable! One box of 400g(de-husked) of Royal MSW is only $29.90! (The above image is what you get in one box of 400g! Very worth it right!)

Did I also mentioned that both variants of the MSW have got really thin seeds? So you really get a lot of flesh to dig into!

Get your Durians from Durian Delivery Singapore today! I’m definitely going to get my Durian fix from them in future!

XOXO,

Hand Bouquet By Floral Garage Singapore

Online Florists on the bloom

Flowers is a great choice of gift for many occasions. Be it celebrations, or just sending flowers to a significant someone to make their day.

With technology these days, you no longer have to head to the florist physically to get the flowers. With many online florists available, sending flowers is as easy as a click of the button. And you don’t have to worry about last minute flower purchase as you can plan ahead and place an order in advance with online florists.

Lovely Blooms by Florist Garage Singapore

Florist Garage have recently sent me a surprise hand bouquet and even though I was expecting a flower delivery, I still got a pleasant surprise as they sent me my favorite Daisies! Plus, receiving flowers is always a mood brightener. Well, unless someone send you a bouquet of Chrysanthemum. 😛 (You’ll get my joke if you understand the Chinese culture.)

giselle floral garage

This bouquet named Giselle, is one of the popular bouquets at Floral Garage. It’s such a lovely bouquet of pink and white Gerberas (a type of daisy) and is a great alternative to the usual roses. I was inspired by the bouquet that I created a makeup look based on the colors of the lovely blooms that week.

But if you prefer roses with the same bouquet style, they provide alternatives too!

For an example this bouquet called Spirited Away that is actually recommended as an alternative to Giselle for something similar but with Roses. It’s also cheaper depending on the number of roses.

Floral Garage Subscription

Have you heard of a flower subscription? This is my first time hearing about it and I do find it very useful especially when you have multiple occasions coming up within the next week months. You can plan ahead for monthly or weekly deliveries or according to the special dates coming up. And you can either choose from the bouquets on site, ask for customization or leave it to the team at Floral Garage to surprise your loved ones! You can also sign up for a subscription yourself if you love flowers and enjoy receiving flowers on a regular basis. You don’t have to tell anyone that you’re the one sending flowers to yourself! 😛

So now you know where to go when you need to order a lovely bouquet of flowers for that special occasion.

XOXO,

Roaming Man SG – Stay connected on your travels!

Roaming Man Sg

Travel the world with Roaming Man SG!

Staying connected while travelling is the topmost concern on my list. Not only do I need to update my social media, having wi-fi connections is also important for Whatsapp calls back home to report safety.

I personally hate to buy sim cards as I’ve to meddle with my phone to change the cards and make sure I keep my own card safely. And it’s annoying to share the hotspot because it drains the phone battery. Roaming Man devices allow up to 5 connections at any time! Which is great for me because my mum can stay connected too!

Connect up to 5 devices with roaming man sg device

One thing I like about Roaming Man is that the connection runs only when you’re active on your phone. Which is great as it not only saves power but also prevents you to exceed data especially when you’re in countries with the Fair Use Policy! Data is unlimited otherwise!

Good coverage and Fast connectivity!

Updating on the go at the far end of Okinawa at Cape Manzamo

Coverage is also really good! I have very good connection through my stay in Okinawa even when I’m by the seaside or at secluded parts of the island!

And the battery life last for at least 12 hours! Which is great because I don’t have to worry about it running out of juice and the need to bring extra power bank for the device.

I also like how convenient it is that the device is sent to you before your trip and you can just send the device back with the return label provided. The device will be sent to you within 2- 4 days before your departure!

If you are going on multiple trips back to back, you can simply customize your package accordingly to your travel plans as Roaming Man Sg supports multi-countries coverage! No need to change devices or meddle with multiple sim cards!

Modern Map Art

Modern Map Art: Your Favorite City in your home

modern map art

Love traveling?

Have a city that meant something special to you?

Or simply just a city that you love and always be on top on your travel list despite being there for umpteen times?

With Modern Map Art, you can now have the map of your favorite city at home.

I guess it didn’t came as a surprise that my favorite city is Tokyo. I would have chosen the whole of Japan if I could, but that would be too huge. Not every country is like Singapore where the whole map could fit into one poster with visibility.

You could choose to get the poster framed up but I choose to just put it up on my wall as a poster. It’s facing directly to my bed and every morning, it reminds the travel lust in me that I will need another trip to Tokyo again.

It’s also fun to look at the map and try to identify the routes within the maps.

Modern Map Art provides various posters sizes for your favorite City Maps. There’s also Ski-Maps if you’re a ski-ing fan. A unique and fun take in Art, Modern Map Art is something you will want to consider for your home decoration!

Sinar Eco Resort: A Tranquil Escape From The City

sinar eco resort

Covering over 8 acres of land, Sinar Eco Resort has got two main areas, one side being the farm/camping area near to the river and the other side is where the lodging area is along with the main reception.

Located in the small town of Pekan Nanas, the resort is just an hour drive away from JB Sentral Customs. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by Palm trees during the drive into the resort!

Sinar Eco Resort: Modern Lodging in a Farm

There are two kinds of room option at the resort, one being the container rooms which as the name suggests, built using those shipping containers. The other option is the apartment rooms which is in the same building as the main reception area. Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups.

Standard Apartment Common Living Area

Standard Apartment Room

Standard Apartment Room

Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups. Each apartment room requires a minimum of 4 to stay and they share a common living room within the apartment.

Nautical Theme Apartment

Nautical Theme Apartment Room

The furniture in the apartment were all built by the staff at the resort. They have a workshop by the farm area where the staff are able to create furniture etc based on their own creativity! There’s one apartment which is a Nautical theme and the idea came from the staff!

Inside the container room

Container Room Washroom

Container rooms are more suited for couples and fit maximum up to three persons. I stayed at the ground level container room and love how easily accessible I can get back to my room. The full-length window in the room allows for good lighting in the room and I love it! The room comes with all the amenities you will find in a standard hotel room.

The rooms are of a modern design and are very clean and comfortable. And yes, the bed is really comfortable! The rooms definitely exceeded the expectations of one would have from an Eco Resort.

The wallpaper is a perfect backdrop for selfies~ 😀

Food @ Sinar Eco

Yummy fried rice served during lunch.

Meals are served at the cafe right next to the reception area. I must say that I’m very well fed with the delicious home-cooked meals served up by the resort! There’s Fried Rice for lunch, Fried Chicken Chop for dinner, Nasi Lemak for Breakfast! You can opt for BBQ dinner at the poolside too!

Farm Experience & Activities At Sinar Eco Resort

Getting Up close with the Farm Animals!

Being a city girl, I hardly ever got close to farm animals even as a kid. Sure, there’s the zoo but there’s a barricade in between so you don’t really get to touch the animals. So when I saw all the animals, I was squealing like a kid. I must say I was a little scared too but you can’t blame me when you have baby goats running up to you and trying to play with you. But the baby animals are so adorable!!!

Tell me, where can you get to carry a one-day old baby sheep? Such a darling!

Getting to meet and touch the animals are not the only thing you can do! You can get your hands wet while having a go at milking the cows, and ride the horses too!

It was my first time seeing horses in real life and I was overwhelmed with excitement! I had a go at riding the horse and it was so tall!! I must admit it’s a little scary while I’m riding the horse but I was at ease because the groom was holding and leading the horse all the while.

Adventure at Sinar Eco

Other than having fun with the farm animals, one can have a go at activities like ATV rides, Kayaking, Eco-Rafting and Archery etc. You can also take either a day or night cruise down the river.

I had a go at Archery and I must say it’s not as easy as it seems. Air pistol or the real deal for me anytime! Lol. The ATV ride was fun and filled with adrenaline rush and be sure to expect mud flying all over if it’s wet!

Went for the river cruise at night and had a lovely time enjoying the night sky filled with stars! I even spotted a couple of fireflies on the ride! I definitely recommend the cruise at night! For the more adventurous type, you can even camp at the riverside for the ultimate experience!

Fun Fact: All the rafts were built by the staff at the resort! And while I was there, they are in the midst of building a 2 story raft! How cool is that?

Relax and Chill At the Resort

After all the fun and adventure at the resort, you can also opt to chill by the poolside at night and have a BBQ dinner.

Spacious Pool Room to accommodate large groups.

Karaoke room with large screen and great sound system!

They also have a very well equipped Karaoke room for you to sing to your heart’s fill. No worries about noise pollution since the only one who might complain are the chickens and goose near to the Karaoke room. If you are not a fan of singing, there’s always the pool room. 🙂

An overview of the resort from the rooftop.

They are also building a Sky Bar at the rooftop of the apartment block. I went up there and the view is awesome. You get a great overview of the whole resort! Imagine relaxing at the bar in the evening with the awesome view. Can’t wait to see how the bar looks like once it’s completed.

Thoughts on Sinar Eco Resort:

Just officially opened in October 2016, the resort is pretty new and they are adding new things every now and then! I highly recommend this place for a short getaway from the bustling city life! The resort is great for families and also suitable for young adults like me! There’s something for everyone to enjoy!

I enjoyed myself during the 2 Days 1 Night stay over at the resort and it’s a really nice break away from the fast paced city! Would love to return when their sky bar is completed!

Here’s a video to sum up my 2D1N stay at the resort! 😀
