Bee Choo Origin – Herbal Hair Treatment

[Sponsored Post]

For the longest time ever, I have been wanting to find a solution to my thinning crown. Even prior to giving birth to Edward, I had considered consulting various professional hair treatment services that are popular in the market. However, a couple of things bugged me. One was obviously the exorbitant cost, made worse by the fact that you need several treatments before actually seeing results. Second being that I have had conflicting feedback from friends, some claiming that the treatments are just gimmicks and don’t really work. In the end, I never did visit any hair treatment businesses due to sheer inertia and doubtfulness.

Thankfully, recently I was approached by Bee Choo Origin to try out their hair treatment services. To be frank, I only had a vague impression of Bee Choo Origin as being some neighbourhood hair care business near my parents’ place. I was wondering why they would contact me for a collaboration. I did a brief check, and to my surprise, Bee Choo Origin actually has 7 outlets in Singapore and many more in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and even South Korea! Not bad for a business that was established only in 2000 as a home-based business with just a stand-alone steamer!

Percolate Coffee – The croissant sandwiches look good!

Did you know that Percolate Coffee is 5 years old? Percolate Coffee’s probably the cafe that I have visited the most since my cafe hopping journey, thanks to its location in the East. And in this fickle F&B industry where customers continually search for new places to Instagram rather than to keep patronising the same place, 5 years is indeed a laudable milestone.

What happens when the toddler wants something different from what you want? Who wins?

The coffee is good (and so is their iced chocolate which is what I always order), somewhat more affordable than town prices, and always friendly faces here. I thought I should cobble together the photos I have taken in my numerous visits here. They also have a broader food menu now as compared to when they first opened. Some of the interesting sounding things they have include prawn curry mash, unagi soba, cheese croissant + curry dip and a number of croissant sandwiches with various fillings. So far, savoury food-wise, I’ve only tried the curry egg mayo a couple of times and loved it.

Scroll down to see more pictures of coffee and cakes, plus a couple of food photos taken by other people, credits below. And also, more pictures of Edward.

Percolate renovated!

My friendly neighbourhood cafe has grown up! It is now twice as big as what it used to be after the law firm next door moved out.

The layout is such that the two sides are somewhat separated by a partition wall, but the huge hole in the wall still gives the illusion of space, and yet retains a certain cosiness to it. Guess what, the interior design firm that was in charge of the renovation is my cousin’s boyfriend’s firm. I had no idea about it until after Percolate closed for renovations!

Glad to see that my favourite Curry Egg Mayo croissant was still on the menu! Still tastes just as good as I remember it to be.

Refuel Cafe at Bedok Reservoir

Nothing gets me rushing out the house like a new cafe opening in the Eastern part of Singapore. Even though Singapore may be getting a little saturated in cafes as a whole, one can never have too many cafes in your own neighbourhood. I’m sure you’d agree with me on that, unless well, you live in Tiong Bahru.

This time round, it’s a new cafe in the Bedok Reservoir area that opened just last week! And will you believe it, I’ve already visited it twice! Once on Saturday evening at about 9.30pm where the kitchen had closed and we could only order drinks or cakes. We returned again the next morning to check out the brunch menu. The brownie with ice cream was nothing spectacular, but the brunch menu was really good, especially for the affordable prices charged!

Percolate – New Cafe in the East!

Those of you living in the East, especially in Bedok, I have good news to announce! There is a new cafe on the block!  I’d known of the empty unit a number of months back, and I had thought to myself that it would be a good spot for a cafe. And guess what, last Wednesday while travelling past in a taxi, I spotted the new Percolate. I think I shouted so loudly that both the Partner and the cab driver had a shock! Luckily our stop was just the next street, and we quickly made our way to the cafe. Apparently Percolate opened just last week on 31 March!

Even until now, I find it such a dream come true that I now have a cafe in my neighbourhood to call my own! It takes me just 2 minutes to walk to the cafe, and 1 minute if I run. I feel like my neighbourhood has been upgraded! Check out these pictures below. I’ll do a longer review once I try more of the items here. Now, when we just want a quick cuppa at night, we don’t have to think 3 times where!
