Aura Blender Review

Most glad to have come by a blender that can be used anywhere and anytime! Introducing Aura Blender: the most powerful, personal blender ever invented for high-performance blend magic. Don't let the size fool you – this travel-sized wonder packs a punch for power, style, and convenience all in one! It can easily whip up your favourite creations from food to superfood, all in a matter of seconds. This Aura Nutri Extractor™ blades extract & retain up to 99% of important vitamins and minerals, ensuring your blends are packed with goodness in every sip. 

And here’s our Aura Blender Review.

The jar is made of borosilicate glass, which is a much safer option for food than plastic. Unlike regular glass, it's 3X more lightweight and doesn't break easily. Furthermore, borosilicate glass is safe for warm blends, whereas this should never be handled in a plastic blender as it poses a risk of toxic leaching into food. While, I may be worried about the risk of carrying something breakable out, I guess it plays to be extra safe keeping it in the Aura insulated sleeve

Sleek and conveniently designed, it's easily charged by plugging the Aura Blender in to any phone charger or portable charger using the cable provided. You can even charge it from your laptop or in the car! It also works with regular phone chargers. The time to full charge is between 1 to 1.5 hours. It is fully charged when the light indicator stops blinking and remains white.

Convertible Feature

The Aura Blender comes with an extra bottle cap so you can replace the motor base and convert it into a lightweight drinking bottle. Easy to bring out!

Washing Instructions

Simply blend water with a drop of dish soap to clean your Aura Blender. Rinse with water, and you're ready for your next blended creation!

Always ensure that the motor base is not exposed to water. Any water damage to the electric components as a result of not following the washing instructions is not covered under warranty.

Use It! 

Here's what I tried with it - Lychee Watermelon Crush! Simply put together lychee (from can), watermelon and ice, and blend! It gives a refreshing treat which is just as good as getting from Booze. Cost savings here. 
With safety in mind, the Aura Blender has a built-in safety feature which ensures the blades do not function unless the jar is firmly secured to the motor base.

Know what, I'm thinking that it is a good travel buddy to bring along for babies who have just started on semi-solids. Get your Aura Portable Blender today from their official website. Free delivery in Singapore. Blending healthy drinks just got easier and frequent for us!

[REVIEW] Fraser Residence Nankai, Osaka

Woah... dusting the cobwebs off my online blog! Excited to want to share on our Osaka, Japan trip! Which many Singaporeans visited during the recent June holiday.

First off, sharing our accommodation where we spent 3 nights in. We booked Fraser Residence Nankai, Osaka. Equivalent to a well furnished apartment, it's great for families. We took the Nakin Kansai Rapid express from Kansai airport to the residence. The train departs every hourly, and it takes about 40 mins to reach Namba. This greatly simplifies our logistics from Kansai airport, which is only a 3 minutes walk from Namba Station.

We booked the one bedroom executive that comes with two super singles, a sofa converted bed, and  separate living, dining area. Besides a kitchenette and there's also a 2 in 1 washing machine, which allowed us to pack light on clothes. Other little perks include a coffee machine and humidifier. The kitchenette is well equipped with items needed to cook meals, if you are planning to. With a kitchenette, it simply means there's a sink out of the toilet which is extremely useful if someone's using the bathroom. Toiletries are fully furnished, if you require more, you may get them at the reception, lobby. There's an iron and ironing board as well. Wi-Fi works extremely well, and there's Netflix too! Which gave me some pleasure catching up on my Korean drama.

Location wise, it's extremely convenient with Ippudo opposite, 551 Horai to the right and MacDonald's just diagonal. A 10 minutes walk to Dontonbori. We did 2 breakfast days at its restaurant, Namba Ribbon. Food variety isn't wide, but good enough choices of Japanese and Western cuisines. 

Highly recommend this accommodation for its room size and location. Even though the hotel was fully occupied during our period of visit, we could barely hear any noise coming from other rooms. Was a nice and quiet stay we had.

[REVIEW] Durian SG Prime

When people say durians boost energy, you have to believe it! At least to me. Eating it, or even the thought of having it energises my day. However the day has been like. Yes, we are durian lovers, especially the littlest son, daughter and I. A matter of fact is also, even though durians contain no unhealthy cholesterol or fats, they are high in calories. Which means if you want to consume, you have to go for what is worth your calories intake. Don't settle for mediocre quality. Here's introducing you to Durian SG Prime, to get both your money and taste worth. 

Durian SG Prime is a trusted platform to satisfy your durian crave. Durian delivery is speedy, you can select between general delivery with an estimated delivery of 2 hours or express delivery within 60 minutes of order confirmation. Free delivery above $99. They provide only quality, and affordable durians that they collaborate directly with plantation owners in Pahang to secure these durians. While most local sellers are buying the supply of agents. The direct process gives end consumers durians that are cheaper. 

Durian SG Prime sent us 2 boxes of creamy, fleshly and bright yellow durians. A box of Black Gold and another of Old Tree. Both from The Famous Tiger Mountain, located in Sungai Klau, Pahang. It owes its name to the early ancient settlers and was incidentally named after the critically endangered Malayan tigers, Panthera tigris tigris subspecies that are native to Pahang.


Black Gold and Old Tree durian

More than 250 mature trees are located along the valley, measuring an estimated 3.8 acres. They are newly discovered old trees that have been dropping rich-tasting durians for over a century. In particular, the Ah Gong tree is dated to be over 103 years old, and Twin Elders, a big old tree, is easily recognized by its two co-joint trunks to be at least 80 years old.  

The rare harvest of these two trees gives an out-of-the-world experience. A taste to “die for “, condensed and throat-sticking meat, the ultimate durian experience. The remaining 250 natural trees in the region are home to mature trees that are beyond 40 years old, cultivating some of the very best durians that Raub has to offer.  

While pictures can't justify the taste, these rich yellow looking durians that we devoured were definitely not a disappointment. We had Black Gold in the bitter variant, and Old Tree Mao Shan Wang in the bittersweet variant. Durians are complex in the sense that they are between the bittersweet taste. Very much selected based on personal preference. Glad these were satisfying and well worth the calories!


Durian SG Prime


And if you had a disappointed buy from Durian SG Prime, you are able to get replacement durian done with no questions asked. Other than getting durian delivery, you may also choose to dine in or walk-in to purchase. Pre-order is highly recommended though. Give it a try, durians lovers!
