Premium Surprise Hand Bouquet from One Hour Florist



Premium Surprise Hand Bouquet
Just in time for my 10th monthsary with my lover, One Hour Florist sent me their signature Surprise Hand Bouquet.

Comes with complimentary printed card message, One Hour Florist's Premium Surprise Hand Bouquet is packed with premium juicy and fresh roses, carefully put together with the complementing flower fillers and assorted greens.

Each bouquet is creatively made according to the information provided by the customers:
  • Age of Recipient
  • Relationship with Recipient
  • Occasion
  • One Word to Describe Him/Her
I actually ordered the bouquet the day before at 5:30pm and was expecting the delivery to be made at 8:00pm that day, unfortunately the bouquet did not arrive despite having contacted them via WhatsApp.

They replied me the next morning and informed me that their orders actually cut off at 4:00pm and there may be a system glitch, and therefore my order could go through. Anyway they delivered the bouquet that morning. So be sure to take note of this and check with them before you place your order.

8 Durian


I was recently invited by 8 Durian to try out their premium grade AAA Mao Shan Wang (aka 貓山王 / Musang King) durians in spite of my distaste for durians. Nevertheless, I invited some of my friends to bask in this lavishness.


From Pahang High Mountain Plantation

Arrived in heat sealed boxes and slightly chilled for quality guarantee assurance, 8 Durian offers authentic and premium Mao Shan Wang durians harvested from their private high mountain plantation in Pahang.

The durian costs $23.50/kg, and each box contains approximately 450g of durian flesh which comes from 1.8kg of durian husk.
The math: each box of durian costs $23.50/kg × 1.8kg/box = $42.30/box*.
*Rate may change from time to time.

8 Durian ensures that the wholesomeness of their durians is not compromised—they space out durian trees in their plantation to prevent overcrowding (as overcrowding causes trees to fight for sunlight and nutrients, resulting in dehydration) and only organic fertilizers are used (instead of potent fertilizers). The outcome of it is a fruit that is creamy and bitter with predominantly small seeds.

You may read more on why their durians are better.

Surprise Bloom Box from FARM Florist



Surprise Bloom Box (large)
Surprise and delight, delivered by the expressive Surprise Bloom Box curated by FARM Florist.

An alternative to standard bouquet such as nosegay, I feel that bloom box presents an extraordinary identity of flower arrangement, which equally brings a smile on the receiver's face.

Along with assorted flower fillers, FARM Florist's bloom boxes come in two sizes:
  • Standard size ($35): 3 stalks of primary flowers
  • Large size ($65): 6 stalks of primary flowers
And their primary flowers may be sunflowers, roses, lilies, or gerberas.

I want to thank FARM Florist for sending me their lovely bloom box to my doorstep. It would be great if they put in extra efforts in better securing the adhesion of the paper material.

FARM Florist partners with flower farms that do not overlook issues such as unfair manpower rights, ease of being infected with diseases, and even slavery. This gives us the confidence that patronizing FARM Florist is analogous to abstaining from such inhumane practices.




For affordable, puffy, and presentable flower bouquets delivered anywhere islandwide in 1 hour, visit FARM Florist.

8 Crabs Seafood Kitchen


How does a scrumptious feast during the Circuit Breaker period look like to you?



Big thanks to 8 Crabs for inviting me to try out their award-winning chilli crab alongside some of the local favorite dishes, all delivered to my humble abode. Grateful to be enjoying this plentiful meal amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meatier Crabs from 8 Crabs

Crabs naturally travel about 500 m every night and prefer to live alone. However, crab farmers breed many crabs in a confined space in order to be profitable. This causes the crabs to get stressed very easily in captivity as many farms cannot replicate their natural habitat. When stressed, crabs produce ammonia, which is a sign of decomposition of seafood.

Most restaurants purchase farmed crabs because they are cheaper. As a result, they use highly fragrant gravies to cover up the ammonia smell.

8 Crabs is the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. This is graded by the most experienced crab graders in the trade. This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger, and less watery.
