Floral Garage Singapore is a two year old company that aims to bring affordable products to their customers. Recently, they had launched a new product category - the Terrarium consists of three categories, the Succulent/ Cacti, Other Terrariums and the DIY Terrarium Kits.  The nice folks of Floral Garage delivered the DIY Terrarium Kit and also a nice succulent terrarium to me during the launch of these new products and they arrived just in time for my hubby's birthday!      

The DIY Terrarium kit consists of two different types, one being the Premium DIY Terrarium Kit (Please read on to learn more about it) and the DIY Terrarium Kit. The kits are great gift idea to your loved ones and you can bond with them by building the DIY terrariums together!  

I was quite surprised when they handed over such a huge box to me at my doorstep.  I really didn't expect it!  So let's unveil what's inside the premium box of DIY terrarium kit...  
 Wow!  The premium DIY kit is designed to make 2 terrariums and it consists of:  

Six mini potted plants
Two Glass Jars
One Spray Bottle
Gardening Tools

1.25 kg of Gravel
250g of Activated Charcoal
Three packets of Decorative Pebbles, 800g each 

Such beautiful greens!  They would definitely help to beautify and liven up your house
 Premium terrarium mix, activated charcoal, gravel and decorative pebbles (3 packets).
 The step-by-step hand-drawn instructions added a personal touch to the gift and they are clear and easy to follow.

 Tips for maintaining the terrariums...
 Hubby and I worked together to build two terrariums together and we had fun getting our hands dirty!  :D
 The gravel adds as drainage and prevent overloading of plants.

Wing Zone @ Bugis+ [GIVEAWAY! - 2 x $20 Wing Zone Voucher]

[GIVEAWAY]  I have 2 x $20 Wing Zone vouchers to give away!  If you are interested, please leave a comment "I want to try Wing Zone" and also, state your email.  That's so simple!  Giveaway will end on 30 Jul (Sat).  Do leave me a comment now!  =)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Wing Zone, Bugis+, a casual dining restaurant.  Flavour Zone is the heart and soul of the company.  The food is made to order and 100% cooked fresh.  Batter-free and No MSG is used too!  This distinguishes Wing Zone from many other fast food company.  Great news for our muslim friends, Wing Zone is also Halal-certified.  From the original 12 flavours, now you can get to choose from 15 flavours ranging from sweet to spicy and there are different levels of spiciness for each of the flavour too.  Names for some of the flavours are quite fanciful and might attract you to try them out.  For instance, Nuclear Habanero, Mango Fire, Blackened Voodoo.

For the "Sweet with No Heat", we tried the "Honey Q", "Cinnamon Maple" and "Sweet Samurai".  Honey Q definitely is a safe choice for those who has low tolerance of spiciness as it is like BBQ sauce with honey, purely sweet.  This is one of the most popular flavour and also the chef's recommended flavour.  Cinnamon Maple, on the other hand, might not suit the tastebuds for some of us.  I still prefer cinnamon in cinnamon rolls.  Of course, not everyone will like ALL the flavours.  You really have to try on your own and decide on your favourites.  Be adventurous!

For the "Sweet and Spicy", we tried all the 4 flavours - "Thai Chili", "Tokyo Dragon", "Smokin'Q" and "Mango Fire".  Our vote goes to "Mango Fire"!  The flavour was tangy with a bit of spiciness.

We loved the Mango Fire flavour so much that we asked for the drumlets with mango fire as well!
 The burgers can be customised with your favourite sauce too!
 There are two types of "Savory Flavours" - "Garlic Parm" and "Lemon Zinger".
I quite like the "Garlic Parm" flavour.  It has parmesan, garlic and a bit of peppery taste.

Tradition Buffalo Flavours

"Buffalo Bliss" - Traditional vinegar based flavour and of course, we  had to save the hottest flavour - "Nuclear Habanero" for the last so our tastebud wouldn't be numbed by it.  Nice!  I could still take the highest level of spiciness. 

    For the sides, I would recommend the flavour rub wedges.  We had them in Blackened Voodoo rub.
Carrots and Celery with Ranch dip and Bleu Cheese dip.

Onion Rings

Mozarella Stix
 The cheese was hard during tasting session so we felt that this needs improvement.
 They served only one dessert - Brownie Bites.  Highly recommended as well!  These are fried brownies!  Bite size, served hot with crisp outer layer.  We suggested to them maybe they could add a scoop of ice-cream served together with the brownies to make it even better.
 Too many flavours and not sure which one to choose?  This is the problem of giving customers too many choices!  You can spin the wheel at the counter and let it decide for you!  Pretty interesting!  

So... What's Your Flavour?  Do come and try them out yourself!

Charisma D'Venue @ Joo Chiat

Charisma D'Venue is a restaurant that also caters to Malay wedding functions.  Our first trip here didn't work out as they were hosting a wedding event.  We made a trip to the restaurant again the following week after I checked on their facebook page and they posted on their page that they would open from 12pm onwards.  We reached around 12.45pm but the place was very empty.  We walked into the restaurant and the two staff who were playing with their phones, didn't really notice our existence until I called them and asked whether they were opened for business.  The staff then politely told us that the kitchen wasn't ready yet, probably had to wait for another 30 minutes.  Since I had to redeem my voucher, we took a walk over to Geylang Serai then went back to the restaurant at 1.15pm.  We were the only customers.

The basic stage set-up for the wedding couple.
 Very minimalistic decor of the restaurant and gave us a very "clean" feel.

 The pinkish menu...

I ordered Thai Iced Tea.
 I was entitled to a free plate of Aglio Olio Prawn with Turkey Bacon Pasta.  The prawns were fresh.  Thanks to Openrice Giveaway.  
 Hubby ordered the Bandung Pasta which was their specialty.  However, the supposedly poached egg was actually fully cooked!  What a disappointment... :(
