Thoughtful Tuesdays : What 2016 meant to me

The year 2016 is scarily coming to an end, with just less than a month to a brand new year. Looking back, this year has been one of the most eventful years in my life, I’d must say. Perhaps the most eventful one with major happenings thus far.


In March this year, I got married to my boyfriend of 8 years.

Also, in March, the then boyfriend finally graduated with his double major degree (okay, this isn’t so much for me but well, I do consider this as one of the major happenings too lah).

Our Home : Steigen Automated Laundry System

Now that the hubs and I are living together on our own, we no longer enjoy the luxury of being cleaned up after. Household chores are now done by us and it can get pretty taxing and tiring at times. For example, the laundry system installed in Built-to-Order HDB flats can be a mountainous task. The manual pulley system takes some effort and strength to operate.  But lucky for us, we had our automated laundry system installed by Steigen!

Just take a look at the manual pulley laundry system provided by HDB…


It gets even heavier when the laundry rack is fully loaded and most importantly, it does not have any safety feature to prevent accidents from occurring. For example, if for any unfortunate reason, a slip of the hand happens, the pulley will not be able to sense if someone or something is at the vicinity. This is very dangerous as it will hit onto the thing/person.


Steigen automated laundry system

One of the best features of this Steigen automated laundry system is that its height can be adjusted via a remote control! This means that it makes things so much easier for me when I want to hang my clothes out to dry. With the adjustable height, I am able to adjust it to a height I am comfortable with.  My husband is 1.8m tall so you can imagine a height that he is comfortable with most probably be a struggle for me! 🙁

We installed the one which comes with a solar function which means that we can dry our clothes anytime, even in indoors! There are 2 powerful air circulators which help to dry clothes 4 times faster. More importantly, for health reasons, they also help to kill germs and bacteria and remove any odours in clothes, leaving them safe and clean to wear! 🙂

For those who are frustrated with hanging your bed sheets to dry, this automated laundry system by Steigen allows you to extend the poles to cater to large items such as bed sheets, comforter etc!

With a 2-year onsite warranty, you need not worry over the maintenance of the Steigen automated laundry system!

In my next blog post, I will be sharing with you guys my review on this in due course 😀

Food Review : Sun Ray (Pet) Cafe

After dropping by the vet at The Animal Recovery Centre last Saturday, I decided to head down to the nearest pet cafe from the clinic. Google map brought me to Sun Ray (Pet) Cafe. Initially I’d thought it was quite near to the ARC, but then it took quite a while (plus heavy traffic on the expressways!) to get there.

Due to my pathetic memory space, I had actually forgotten that we patronised the cafe previously about 2 to 3 years back. It was only until the hubs mentioned about it, and I remembered. Talking about ageing, sigh. 

Indeed, a pet-friendly cafe (I reckon it’s mostly dogs than other fur babies), it was filled with a handful of dogs. Nevermind the fact that the waiter half-heartedly opened the sliding door without checking if Jingles and I were able to pass through, we settled down nonetheless. It was quite packed so thank goodness that I had made a reservation in advance 🙂

Both the hubs and I were starving and we proceeded to order our food promptly! I was actually more excited to be around so many cute furkids than to savour my first meal of the day in the late evening…HAHA! 😀

We witnessed a cute but super hyperactive (and horny) male poodle who kept going around to terrorise other dogs by trying to hump on the female dogs there.

The disgusting incident

An owner of his Shih Tzus was not paying attention to his dogs and the Poodle was already humping on one of his dogs . Me being me, afraid that something serious might happen (like actual penetration or something lah – I have no idea how dog mating session works anyway lol), I kindly informed that owner and I guess that was when he got more pissed, which I guess must be the reason he forgot that my kindness could very well have deserve basic gratitude like a simple THANK YOU? He had to tell a little girl off – “Can you control your dog?!” 

And his next course of action disgusted me.

Food Review : Ajoomma Korean Dessert Cafe at Holland Village

If you are a Bingsu lover, you’d need to check out what I am about to introduce to you today! 😀

A very popular korean dessert recently trending is none other than Bingsu, which is a kind of shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup, and Azuki beans.

Recently, I dropped by Ajoomma Korean Dessert Cafe at Holland Village, which is the heart of the nightlife in Singapore, and tried their Bingsu and Waffle Ice Cream!

X-ray Results of my Spine and Posture Analysis by Natural Healings

Previously, I blogged about how the hubs and I are currently getting our spines adjusted at Natural Healings, as we are suffering from daily aches everyday at our necks, shoulder blades and for me, at my lower back as well.

For the chiropractors to be able to treat your problem areas effective, an X-ray has to be done so that any misalignment of the spine from the norm can be easily identified.

With our X-ray results out, we had our consultation and posture analysis conducted by Dr. Leon from Natural Healings. Dr. Leon has specifically indicated that my lower back’s condition is the worst of all the other areas, and truth be told, I am particularly concerned especially at such young age. I reckon that this must be due to my old sport injury a decade ago, which I had regrettably failed to get it treated. So, please, should you ever injure your back, even if it was a mere sprain, please get it treated ASAP. Otherwise, you would be suffering like me. In fact, I had experienced the consequences many years ago and still, I did not get it treated other than going for irregular visits with a Chinese physician. I ought to be shot, I know. 🙁

These are my X-ray results.

The blue line should be correct position of the spine and as you can tell, mine is kinda way off 🙁 Also, the red lines are squiggly which also should not be the case.

It has been almost 5 months since our wedding and honestly, sometimes I am still in disbelief on the fact that I am already married! HAHA 😛

However, looking back at those days where we scurried during our wedding preparations and eventually, the celebration on our wedding day, it is without a doubt that both the husband and I are extremely grateful for a few groups of people.

So, this is a proper THANK YOU post to them! 🙂

First and foremost, without our families, especially our parents, the husband and I would not exist…HAHA! And we would not have met and got married. Our families have provided us with the much-needed support in our upbringing and well-being, and we know we can never thank them more than enough.

To our entourage, you guys and girls have never failed to wow-ed us with your utmost assistance in helping us with our BIG day! From the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely thank each and everyone of you. From waking up so early, the groomsmen being so spontaneous and sporting during the gatecrash session, the bridesmaids for planning the whole gatecrash session, from helping out during our reception etc. You guys rock! We will always remember your time and effort you guys put in for us 🙂

Lastly, our wedding was also impossible without our awesome wedding vendors.

Beauty Review : Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

*This is NOT a sponsored post

So recently, in a desperate attempt of salvaging my skin’s terrible condition, I decided to pamper my skin more by buying more beauty loots. Heh, another perfect excuse 😛

One of the beauty loots I got was the  Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. As more and more comedones are popping out, I decided that I had to get them fixed and since this clay mask claims to minimize and clean up pores, I’d thought why not 😉

Moreover, it has attracted several raves I am keeping my fingers crossed that it would work well on me too 🙂
