Ode to IKEA Singapore -- The EATS Edition!

IKEA's well-known for their Swedish meatballs -- round pieces of meat, bread crumbs, and secret spices; usually served with gravy and boiled potatoes.  But, in my opinion, they have so much more to offer than just balls.

Ode to IKEA Singapore

IKEA -- that mecca of affordable, easy-to-assemble (relatively) furniture and home accessories store hailing originally from Sweden.  They've got almost everything you need to turn your house into a well-loved and personalized home with furnishings that simply screams you.

At IKEA our vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people.  Our business idea supports this vision by offering a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them.  (Source: Ikea Singapore website)

That is IKEA's vision and business idea which reflects well on their products and services.  It's no wonder that it's one of the most visited stores here in Singapore!

Bundaberg Root Beer: The Taste of an Authentic Sarsaparilla (A Singapore Beverage Post)

I'm not much of a softdrink uhmm... drinker, but I do make the occasional exception for root beer.  I'm not sure why but I just seem to prefer it over any of the other carbonated drinks in the market.

Now, like most people, Sarsi is the very first thing that pops to my mind when I hear the word root beer (well, A&W also comes in at a close second, except it was not as commercially available as the former was before.)  But here in Singapore, there are no Sarsis (wonder if it's a local brand of ours.)  There are, however bottles of Bundaberg Root Beer, which I decided to try one time just to satisfy my sweet cravings.

How to Organize a Simple Birthday Party in Singapore

We celebrated the Little One's 1st birthday last July here in Singapore.  And although we found ourselves away from our loved ones in the Philippines, we decided that a simple celebration to commemorate her special day was in order.

But how exactly do you throw birthday parties at a ridiculously expensive city?  Simplify is the key, plus the use of a few DIY projects, of course!

Happy birthday to you...

Helpful Blogging Tips from Blogger Sentral

I've been an e-mail subscriber of the Blogger Sentral website for a while now.  It's a very useful site that provides useful information on how to fully utilize the features of your blog.  I, for one, make no claims in being an IT whiz.  In fact, there's a term I label myself as -- I am techno-ignorant, for want of a better term.

So you can just imagine how useful the tips at Blogger Sentral have been to me.
