I grew up with either the blue or yellow cabs but now there’re 6 taxi operators and several private ride hailing such as Uber, Grab. With a population of approximately 5.7 million people and an island city, we do have choices when it comes to what cab to take!
With choices come decisions. And usually price and service shape our decisions on public transportation. Even within the same operator, different car models command different fares…so we really need a good chart to help us decide!
👆🏻I found this article to be concise yet informative. It covered essential information on
fare comparisons – flag down fares, booking fees, cancellations, peak vs off peak
types of payments accepted
Do your homework too. Now that you know the names of the cab operators, it is worthwhile to download their apps or check their websites. Where you’ll find up to date information on latest promotions, promo codes 😊 and in-app cashless payments.
A book by a Japanese doctor, Dr Yoshiharu Shindo recently caught my eye while I was at the bookstore. The front cover showed a sock 🧦 and the back cover said “put on more socks 🧦” as one of 4 steps to “dispel the cold” from our bodies. Called the Hietori Method (Hie means “cold” and Tori stands for “removing something away” in Japanese). My notes 📝 …
Why is it important to “dispel the cold” The Chinese translation of this book has 排寒 on the cover. 排 means expel, remove and 寒 means winter or cold. Cold isn’t just temperature cold but accumulation of “cold” in our body. A concept in traditional Chinese medicine. When you’re cold, your blood vessels constrict which affects blood circulation. Poor blood circulation not only affects proper distribution of oxygen and nutrients, it also inhibits the discharge of toxins from our bodies.
Why wear socks with 5 toes and why at least 4 pairs? Having the most concentration of sweat glands, the soles of our feet are the best place to remove these toxins. Through socks layering.
#1🧦 – 5 toes socks. The first pair closest to our skin has to be highly absorbent to absorb and then expel the toxins. Silk is recommended. The reason for 5 toes allows each toe to be closest to the cloth
#2🧦 – 5 toe socks. Cotton or wool. For their absorptive and breathability qualities to absorb the toxins from #1🧦
#3🧦 – round toe socks. Silk. To absorb toxins from #2🧦 and expel
#4🧦 – round toe socks. Cotton or wool. To absorb toxins from #3🧦 and expel
I’ve tried for a few nights now to layer the socks as suggested. Some dampness especially the first 2 layers is expected since they’re closest to the toes. Which means I’m removing toxins from my body naturally too😊
I’ll be posting the next 3 steps as suggested by Dr Yoshiharu Shindo. Stay tuned!
Welcome to my guest post! I’m Didarlin from Henan province, China and I’m currently studying in Singapore. Follow me as I share lifestyle and travel blogs of China and Singapore. Check out my recent visit to a Christmas market organized by Etsy SG!
Most have been with me for a long time. And each ornament has at least a story to tell. When, where, how we got them. For example the 101 Dalmatian dog was a happy meal toy from McDonald’s SINGAPORE, when the movie was released in 1996. I’ve kept it well, albeit some yellowing. It used to light up if you pressed the button on top of the red bow. Something I did every day in the run up to Christmas each year until the battery went flat. The second photo of a pair of Christmas bells were handmade by my grandma more than 5 years ago.
I still go window shopping for new ornaments every year. Though mostly just browsing. It’s the best way to soak in the festive atmosphere and get decorating tips from shops filled with Christmas trees, advent calendars, bells, angels, snow globes, etc …and merry Christmas songs. It’s a truly magical feeling!
Goals. No matter which stage you’re at in achieving your goals, this 1 minute video is for everyone. Simple, no fuss yet gentle reminder from our animal friends that it pays to be flexible and patient.
A time of the year where flexibility and patience are also needed as we juggle multiple year end family and social get togethers, travel plans, shopping, deadlines…
I’m one of those people who have to consume more fiber foods to maintain regular bowel movement. For us with digestive problems, these “good” bacteria help to keep our guts healthy. And with a rich chocolate taste, what not to like😉.
Probiotic lactic acid bacteria （乳酸菌）in foods and supplements are thought to be safe for most people, though some people with immune system problems or other serious health conditions and allergies shouldn’t take them. Check with your doctor if you’re unsure and always eat in moderation!

A softie for bread, whether it’s the whiff from a cafe bakery or photos from a magazine or internet, I can’t resist! Over a cup of coffee at home or in a cozy cafe… it’s just perfect 😋 whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
I’ll be posting bread photos, bakeries and cafes from my visits. And also interesting cafe stories. How about sharing your bread photos or favorite bread+coffee spots with the community? (Just add a link to your post in my comments section) Looking forward!
