In Singapore you will find durians everywhere. There are different types of durians with different names and quality. Singaporeans know how to pick the best tasting durians. And if you live in Singapore you must taste this King of the fruits, otherwise you cannot be part of the Singapore. Well, this is not a rule. But this is what was told by my colleagues when I started working on my first job in Singapore back in 2009.And I became a Durian lover too.The same colleagues even introduced me to another Singapore must try,which is mooncakes.

Best Durians may pricey. But you can’t challenge the taste of fresh durians from quality harvesting. As our experience with 8 Durians is so good so far, here is our review. So you know what to choose.

When I placed the order, I had to choose the delivery date and time. I received my durians on the due date and sharp within the time period I have mentioned.

Durians were packed perfectly in order to keep the freshness. If you don’t want to taste the durian right away, you can even keep it for few hours in the fridge as the packaging is properly sealed.

The tasting experience

8 Durian delivery review

In 8 Durians website you can find mainly 3 types of Durians including Premium Black Gold Durian , Mao Shan Wang and Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘AAA Grade’.I placed the order for Mao Shan Wang ‘A Grade’ and Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘AAA Grade’ durians as these are varieties that tastes creamy and sweet.

Our tasting experience was enjoyable.

Singapore durian review blog

Premium Mao Shan Wang AAA Grade :

With rich and creamy texture every bite of premium Mao Shan Wang durian could allow us to taste the freshness of durian. It was satisfying and our durian craving was arousing. Seeds are small therefore more flesh in each bite.

Here is my little reviewer who was waiting for durian tasting till I capture few photos. 🙂

Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘A Grade’

8 Durian delivery review

Although it is difficult to identify the exact differences between the tastes if these 2 durian types, Mao Shan Wang is still a rich creamy and slightly bitter durian. The colour is darker compared to the Premium Mao Shan Wang AAA Grade. Each bite was full of deliciousness which aroused the taste buds.

During this Covid-19 circuit breaker time we found how online shops and online delivery services are helpful. While online shopping is not a new thing, sometimes such services were not admired much by most people as they were used to traditional shopping at brick and mortar shops.

As a mom I always look for ways to help my kid to learn new things. I know it is same for most of other parents with the concern on better development of their kids. Early education plays a major role in any kid’s development. As parents we have to play a big role. But the world has changed so much. Education is not only through reading books or writing on papers. There are many other tools that we can use to keep the kids engaged while learning actively. Mobile apps are part of such tools.

In this hard time battling with Covid-19 situation most parents found it difficult to keep the toddlers and young kids to stay at home to keep them safe. We have to adapt to the home based learning as the schools are closed. They can’t go to the playgrounds in order to keep social distancing and to prevent catching up the virus. How do you keep your kids safe at home while helping them to use the time engaging in helpful activities?

With home based learning, kids have to use computers and online tools than before. Instead of blaming on such educational games and apps, parents found it helpful to give the necessary education together with funful activities. This is where educational apps for toddlers and kids are helpful.

8 Crabs Review : Crab Delivery in Singapore

I am sure you will feel hungry after reading this 8 Crabs Review.Why I am saying like that? This Crab delivery service in Singapore delivers freshly cooked food within 1 hour! And the food is yummilicious! 🙂

It was the right time when the team at 8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant contacted me regarding an honest review about their food delivery. Due to Covid-19 pandemic we all in Singapore stay at home safely. This Circuit Breaker period also limited food and dining experiences and all these measures are for our safety. Therefore food delivery is the best option to try different food while staying home safely.

Do you know that you can even order durian online?Read our 8 Durian review for more details.

8 Crabs review

We are happy with the food delivery by 8 Crabs seafood restaurant due to different reasons. This is why I am writing this 8 crabs review in order to share the good news with others in Singapore. And do you know the best secret? 8 Crabs is the only company in Singapore that use grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. Therefore the customers are able to taste fresh meatier crabs when they place their order with 8 crabs. Not only crabs, there are other seafood and poultry dishes which you can order.

Okay, now I want to share about 8 Crabs food delivery and my experience from placing order until the food satisfy our cravings.

What is 8 Crabs?

8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant is a Singapore based award winning crab and seafood delivery who serve the customers’ island wide. Their signature dish include premium AAA Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs while there are other seafood dishes prepared with fresh seafood from Sri Lanka.

Why crab delivery by 8 crabs is unique?

Although there are other seafood dishes that you can taste, this review will not complete if I don’t mention more about their crab delivery. Did you ever know what makes a delicious crab meal?

The crab meals are cooked with freshly caught wild crabs from Sri Lanka. Do you know that crabs grown in crab farms which are limited in space undergo lot of stress as they prefer to live alone? When the crabs are too stressed they produce ammonia. Anyway such farm grown crabs are cheaper in price as they are grown with the aim of profitable business. Although it is cheap such ammonia produced stressed crab will not give you the best taste as wild crabs can be.

This is why crab delivery from 8 crabs is so unique.

Image: 8crabs.com

8 Crabs source their crabs from Sri Lanka and air flown daily to Singapore in order to deliver fresh crab meals.

Therefore crab delivery from 8Crabs includes meatier, bigger, less watery and tastier crabs that satisfy your food cravings.

With 12 kitchens across the island they also promise to deliver your order within 1 hour. Therefore One Hour Crab Delivery makes 8 Crabs unique from other similar delivery services.

Our Experience with 8 Crabs food delivery ( 8 Crabs review)

8 Crabs Review

Well, I was invited to experience meal delivery from 8 Crabs. While 8 Crabs best sellers include award winning chili crab, black pepper crab and Salted Egg Crab, we included more seafood and poultry to our order due to some dietary restrictions.

Our order included Premium Cereal Prawn, Prawn Paste Chicken, Yam Ring, Butter Battered Calamari and Mee Goreng.

Placing the order using 8 Crabs website was smooth and it only took few minutes. Once we add items to the cart, you can choose the preferred delivery time. Note that orders over $120 are entitled to free shipping.

Once we placed the order we received it at the specific time period without any delay.

Above all, the foods delivered were really hot and fresh. I only had to arrange the food for our meal.

Then the tasting experience!

Yam Ring

Potty Training Tips for Positive Success

I remember the time which I was looking for potty training tips everywhere over the websites. I was excited to start our adventure with my little son and finally we could do it! Potty training is important when your baby grows. Usually toddler stage is ideal for starting potty training. It is also necessary to check whether your little one is ready to potty training or not.

Potty Training Tips

Potty training is not so simple. If you don’t do it right it can be a painful experience for both your child and for yourself. This is why it is important that you know the best approach to train your child for the potty at the right time.

To help you on this milestone, here are some potty training tips which I learned during my journey of parenting a little boy.

Start potty training when your child is ready

This is really important for a smooth potty training journey. If you start it at the right time when your toddler is ready, then you both will enjoy the process. As per my ‘go to’ potty training resource the golden window for starting potty training is when the kid is between 20-30 months of age.

Look for the potty training readiness signs before you start. Some of the signs include staying dry for few hours, able to sit on a potty and showing a regular pattern for the bowel movements. If you see these signs then that may be the ideal time to start your adventure with the kid.

Potty Training Tips

Read and learn about potty training

Learning about potty training is really helpful for you as a mom. Specially if you are a first time mom like me, you will have lot of doubts about potty training. Even if you are not a first time mom it is also important to refresh your knowledge and ideas about potty training. You can read some books about potty training. I always read mom blogs to find tips and advice about potty training from other fellow moms. Usually I trust mom blogs in my parenting journey because they share their actual experiences through the blog posts same as me.

Buy potty training essentials

To start your potty training adventure it is essential that you have all the necessary items. You can prepare a list of potty training essentials in order to not to miss any item. An attractive potty is one of the main essentials. You can shop together with your little one and choose a potty that he or she likes. This step will encourage your kid to be independent too. Don’t forget the pull up pants or underwear which is essential for successful potty training.

Potty Training success Tips

Make potty training fun

Don’t make potty training stressful. If you expect your kid to learn everything fast and go to the potty by his own when necessary, you will not only ruin yourself. You will make potty training stressful for your little one too.

Allow time and expect accidents during this period. Relax and make it a fun experience for your kid.

Above are some of the tips that you can follow in order to make potty training experience memorable for both you and your little one. It will take time although there are some kids who adapt to the potty fast within few days.

Be patient and enjoy your parenting adventure with your kid.

Happy potty training!

Kid had to use the laptop and online platforms daily to access his school home based learning materials. However there were lot of time left after he completed his daily assignments.

Parts of a Plant Craft

Keeping kid busy is not easy. They easily get bored. Even he cannot go to a playground or no outside walking due to the strict measures. Therefore it is time to be creative in order to keep the kid busy without getting much bored. Arts and crafts are always my favourite way to keep the kid busy while educating him on relevant topics.

We did few art crafts during last few weeks and this ‘Parts of a plant’ is one of such activities. It was fun for him to spend time creating this craft while learning the parts of a plant.

Here is how he made his art craft on Parts of a plant with my guidance. If your kid is a kindergartner or a primary 1 student, then this craft will be a great idea to learn about parts of a plant while spending time on a craft activity!

How to make Parts of a Plant craft

Things you need:

Growth of Parenting Influencers : How to Use Them for Your Marketing Campaign

Few years ago when it comes to blogging, most of the bloggers started sharing their ideas using a free platform such as BlogSpot. I was one of such blogger who started sharing my recipes since 2011 by writing a free blog at BlogSpot. But since then blogging has changed so much. Instead of calling such individuals as a blogger, it is best identified them as influencers. Mom bloggers and dad bloggers became influencers within their niche. They were perfect for product launches and brand awareness. This is how influencer marketing became much popular among the businesses apart from their traditional advertising methods which are more expensive. As part of such parenting influencers around the world I am happy to see today’s growth and influence which parenting bloggers can make towards any campaign.

Growth of parenting influencers

What is special about parenting influencers?

Parenting influencers are everywhere. It is not all about blogging. Some of the parenting influencers use social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook to spread their word. Now with the Covid-19 pandemic and due to strict stay home measures, more people use platforms such as Instagram and Facebook to spend their time. This is why businesses still continue their brand campaigns to reach their end users even though business is not normal as usual. Parenting influencers are there to help brands.

Almost all these influencers are real parents with kids. They share their day to day experiences while raising happy and healthy children. They even share their life struggles along the way. With a real audience across social media and blog, these parenting influencers do a great job. For other parents they share helpful information, tips and support.

I understood this when I first became pregnant. Residing in another country apart from my parents I didn’t know how to prepare for my delivery. But there were mom bloggers who shared lot of information starting from how to prepare the hospital bag to how to do diapering which was really helpful for me. When I was feeling stressful or doubtful there were parenting influencer groups to share ideas or to talk to someone. So, I know how parenting influencers are supportive for other parents around the world.

On the other way this influence is what it requires for advertisers. They recognize such influence as worth paying for in order to share their message. This is why parenting bloggers are called as parenting influencers. This mother daughter duo is one of such great examples for the power of parenting influence.

Why parenting influencers are special? They are real parents and trusted by others. They keep themselves trustworthy by sharing only the helpful information within their network. And they are so much popular and worth to consider as brand ambassadors or product promoters.

How brands use parenting influencers for their marketing campaigns?

As I mentioned before Influencer marketing is becoming so much popular day by day. Brands use parenting influencers to leverage the reach, to crate strong brand reputation, to recommend products and as a result to drive more sales.

There are different ways that Brands use parenting influencers for their marketing campaigns.

Growth of parenting influencers
From a past campaign

 Giveaways and competitions are one of the popular strategies for such influencer campaigns. Many businesses use parenting influencers to reach new audience by arranging giveaways and competitions. Parenting influencers use their most efforts to reach their followers using the power of their word.

Product reviews are another popular strategy for marketing campaigns which most brands like to use. They use the influencer’s trustworthy words to promote product awareness which attract new sales. In a recent interview, Joe Sinkwitz, founder of Intellifluence shares his experience in reviewing a product for Chrissy’s Socks which became creative and popular. This is how the power of influencers can be used through review in order to reach the consumers.

We all love to know about any product or service before we purchase. We are curious about how it works, what are the pros and cons.

Growth of parenting influencers

Parenting influencers are really great sharing their honest idea about any product or service. Product reviews doesn’t even stop by sharing a review post. It will stay permanent on their blog or social media account and most influencers clarify any doubt which consumer has when they comment or email. That’s a plus point for advertisers to choose such influencers for their marketing campaigns. This is why parenting bloggers are considered as influencers in their niche.

There are other marketing strategies such as sponsored articles, newsletter reach, and social media sharing which parenting bloggers can help brands to promote their message.

Things worth to know before using parenting influencers for your marketing campaign

With the growth of parenting influencers advertisers and brands can easily find influencer targets for their brand campaigns. However there are things to keep in mind before choosing the right influencers. There are parenting influencer at all levels. There are influencers with high followers count while there are influencers with low follower count. With my experience, the number of followers actually doesn’t show their influence.

There influencers with lower follower count who actually create more engagement than an influencer with higher follower count can generate.

If any brand put so much pressure on the parenting influencer about the content they want, the brand will fail. Simply let influencer what you really want and allow the parenting influencer to come up with their idea. Parenting influencers are good at creating engaging content than you think about them.

Final words:

Parenting influencers are growing day by day. They are even considered as micro-influencers which brands can use for their marketing campaigns. If your parenting influencer has gain a solid reputation and trustworthiness among the followers then it is important than the number of followers.

However there are debates on tutoring programs as it makes students more tired.  Finding a reliable tutoring program is another issue. Sometimes it is obvious that many students do tuition hopping when they cannot get the necessary guidance.

Further During this Covid -19 pandemic we all understand the importance of online educational platforms. Most countries around the world are under lockdown or under strict social distancing measures to prevent spreading of the Covid-19 virus. Schools are closed and students have to study from home. There is no way to attend neither tuition classes nor connecting with tutors unless they use online platforms. This is why online teaching platforms are helpful for the students. As a mom I too worry about my son’s education and activities during this stay at home duration.

How to Manage Homesickness When Traveling

Traveling offers lots of exciting opportunities from picturesque scenery to delicious new foods and different cultures, but when you’re away from home longer than a couple of weeks, it can also mean homesickness. That house you bought among the Birmingham homes for sale, or in any other city, brings familiar comforts – as a study in ResearchGate notes, home helps one to “develop and maintain identities and  a sense of continuity in their lives.”

How to Manage Homesickness When Traveling

Fortunately, there are some relatively easy ways to manage homesickness when traveling so that you can enjoy the moment.

Social Media

If you’re missing friends and family at home, take advantage of social media to share your experiences which can help make you feel more connected. You can also use technology like FaceTime and Skype Calls. Just don’t rely on it too much or it could not only make homesickness worse, but you’ll probably end up missing out on the joys of travel too.

Meet Up With Others From Home

Sometimes just being around other people from your home country can make a significant difference, as homesickness is often worse when there’s a language barrier and a whole new culture. By staying in hostels, there’s a good chance you’ll find someone to talk to, but talking to other travelers in local pubs and bars, joining get-togethers through sites like Meetup.com or even taking a tour, can all be good ways to find that connection. 

Keep Busy

If you’re outside enjoying the sites, taking advantage of tours, and especially outdoor activities that get your heart pounding and feel-good endorphins flowing, you’re unlikely to feel homesick. On the other end of the spectrum, sitting in your hotel room online watching what your friends are doing back home is probably going to really make homesickness set in. Do anything but sit inside on your laptop feeling sorry for yourself.

Stay Healthy

When you’re traveling, it’s easier to fall into bad habits like poor diet and not getting enough exercise. But that can leave you feeling lethargic, increasing homesickness, creating a vicious cycle. Combat that by planning activities like hiking, biking and/or paddling into your sightseeing, and aim to eat healthier meals, eliminating junk foods if possible. You’ll feel better and have more energy to appreciate all that your destination has to offer.

Learn More About Where You Are and Where You’re Going 

When traveling, you’re stepping into the unknown, but the more you know about it, the less you’re going to experience discomfort. Try to learn as much as you can beforehand so that you’ll feel more prepared once you get there. Once you’ve arrived, join local events and seek out every opportunity possible to get to know those who live there, making the culture shock a lot less “shocking.”
