[F&N Ice Cream Brand Challenge 2017] Sustaining a National Heritage Icon

Image
The traditional pushcart ice cream is a charming part of old Singapore that has managed to maintain its popularity today as the favorite go-to ice cream on busy, fashionable Orchard Road and many other parts of the island. Offering enticing flavors of Asia such as durian and mango, the ice cream pushcart sellers serve blocks of delectable ice cream sandwiched between soft, fluffy slices of bread or tasty wafers, or in a cup.
The common local street culture/sight of Singapore today is often recognized by their combo of a big colorful umbrella and their motorcycle which are strapped together to a cart! These mobile ice-cream vendors are known as 'Ice-Cream Uncles'. Singapore has developed so rapidly that many traditional street foods have vanished due to the fast paced nature of Singapore life. Others that are still around are now facing the challenge to rejuvenate and revamp themselves in order to stay relevant.

[product review] OINTLAB Vital Renatured Repair Ointment

Image
OINTLAB Cosmetics products provide nutrients and moisture to the skin. It also increases skin elasticity and protects your skin against harmful radicals from the environment. They are 100% safe to use as they are completely free from preservatives.


I was glad that the company '0.8L Singapore' sent me the OINTLAB Vital Renatured RepairOintment directly from Korea! It helps skin restoration, anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, texture improvement, whitening, soothing and moisturising.

OINTLAB Vital Renatured Repair Ointment comes in a snazzy Tiffany-colored box. Let me wrap up my review without being too monotonous! I am new to this product as well as the product brand, but I was convinced by the smooth white creamy texture and the fresh scent. These 2 elements gave me the confidence to try it without any hesitation! I am glad that I tried it, as I would not have known that this product works so well on me!

[New Zealand] Great Lake Taupo

Image
We continued with our drive from Huka Falls to our next location, Lake Taupo, and it took us another 30 minutes to reach our destination. Along the way, I had my favorite 100% pure Apple juice from The Homegrown Juice Company. I even brought back half a dozen of them from NZ to SG LOL!

We settled our baggage at Bay Court Motel, and the location was great. We could look upon the vast Great Lake Taupo from our apartment, and it was fantastic! The motel was well equipped
with the necessary facilities, but most importantly, the room was very clean!




We stayed 2 nights in Taupo, and our stay came with breakfast. To us, this was a perfect room service, as we love having breakfast in the room!

The highlight of the day in Taupo was to visit the Great Lake Taupo. This lake was created nearly 2,000 years ago by a volcanic eruption. The lake is actually the site of a crater, and the water was incredibly clear blue! The size of the lake gave me the impression that it was almost the size of Singapore!
