8 Tips for new gardeners on growing a high-rise balcony vegetable garden

The other day over a cup of coffee, I was enthusiastically regaling my gardening trials to a friend, when she suggested that I perhaps compile my woes into a blog post for people who are gardening for the first time. It had never occurred to me to do so as I consider myself very new to gardening (less than a year?) as compared to those who have done it for decades, and with a much larger garden.

But on second thoughts, I agree there is still much to share and much to be learnt despite numerous articles out there catered to the newbie gardener.

Happy Gardener

Balcony gardening is fun! Just look at this happy happy little gardener! He did proclaim that he will help to harvest but not to eat the greens!

The whole problem is that when something happens to your plant, such as it having crumpled leaves, or it not flowering, many reasons are offered and you’re none the wiser as to which reason was the cause of the problem. Also, a lot of the advice is generic and may not apply to the type of plant you have, whether it be potted or garden grown and very importantly, locality. Worst of all, the effects of whatever wrong doing you might have inflicted on your plant may take days to be visible, if at all.

So here’s what I learnt from balcony gardening living in tropical and humid Singapore, where day temperatures are in excess of 30 degress most parts of the year. I’ve been planting mainly edible plants, with the bulk being green leafy vegetables. You can follow me on Instagram or Facebook to get live updates!

SUDIO FEM Wireless Earphones Review

[Sponsored Post]

Recently I was gifted a pair of Sudio FEM wireless earphones. Now I actually don’t have a habit of listening to music on a regular basis. The only time I ever use earphones is when I’m hitting the treadmill at the gym! On the contrary, my husband uses earphones on a regular basis. Interesting enough, earphones are especially handy in the office to block out noisy colleagues, but anyway….

So the husband kindly volunteered to check out Sudio FEM. Out of the 4 colours available (Black, White, Classic Blue and Pink), he selected Black. But because these wireless earphones look so nifty and cool, I thought maybe I’d like to have them instead, so I eventually put in the order for White. Imagine his initial disappointment because he had secretly intended to keep them for his own usage. But the good thing is, the colour is growing on him because the product is too good to be returned to the rightful owner (me) just because of a difference in colour.

So what’s so good about the Sudio FEM wireless earphones?

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.

Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment (8)

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!
