February 21, 2018

Are you a new homeowner? Or maybe someone who is trying to renovate his home? Well, if you are, we can actually bet that one of the things you search for would be some designs you may apply to your home so you can make your little comfort place better and more comfortable. But when i comes to what you can get for you to be able to achieve a more gorgeous abode, you know very well that you do not need to actually barge in those all-too-popular stores and purchase pieces that are too expensive.

Sometimes, all we need is to look at different types of homes and be inspired with designs. Just imagine browsing online and seeing design that you might like. What would you automatically do? What else but to take note of the details and maybe after that, you would call one of your friends or relatives to discuss what you just saw. And if the situation serves you right, you might even go and consult with a designer so you can start reconstructing your home.

More than just that, we also look for furniture design inspirations. In addition, we also look at colours, the kinds of wallpapers we can install, and sometimes, we even try to reconstruct our home's layout because we have come across a nice layout and we want that to be copied to our homes. Why? We want to see that the investment we have had is so worth it. We want to relax, to feel good, and to show off our homes to our other relatives and friends. But of course, we can all agree that when it comes to making our homes beautiful and more comfortable, we need to pay attention to the pieces of furniture we move in to our homes. For instance, we would need to check if the pieces of furniture in Singapore are of quality.

So, maybe you are thinking why we are actually looking at some of home appliances that are sold in the country. This is because most people like it when they find out that those pieces of home furniture sold in Singapore are made of good materials. Moreover, you can be guaranteed that these home items are going to be very durable.

You see, if you look anywhere in Singapore, furniture shops are plenty. So, we totally understand if it is going to be difficult to choose which of those is going to be your supplier. But here is the thing, you may want to do some research on some of them. You need to check whether these suppliers are licensed and of course, you need to check who among them has designs that you might like. Or better, who knows, maybe you can chance upon a sash maker or store that can even customize for you.

So, if you want to already be more comfortable, then you better start scouting for pieces of home furniture that you may buy for your home. Check the material, the colors, and most especially, the price.

Buy the Best Memory Foam Mattress

February 6, 2018

Getting a good night’s sleep is everybody's dream. Well, let us correct that: every adult’s dream. Yes, you have heard it right. Why not? We all know that we are so challenged when it comes to our daily task or job that most of the times, in order for us to finish them on time or even before the deadline, we wake up ahead of schedule to start working earlier than expected and still, yes this is right, we even go home a little later as well.

We cannot blame ourselves if we become too overwhelmed by work. We just want to be able to work efficiently so that everyone else in the chain can be able to finish tasks on time, too.  And besides, we still need to take care of ourselves. Why? Because a sound body would mean an energetic self and a very motivated one to finish tasks right and just on time.

Are you familiar with the wellness emails you get from your HR department? Yes, those emails that tell you to drink plenty of water, eat the right food, and to take exercise? These are the same emails that tell you to sit properly and to position yourself according to healthy recommendations so you are able to properly take care of your spine or your posture, too. But we can all agree when we say that we do not follow these emails not because we hate to follow but because we are either too busy or we just would like to do things the easier way. And the result? A bit of body pains here and there and of course, a tired back.  But if you do want to fix this while being able to get a good night’s rest, then try buying a quality mattress. When we talk about a bed foam or a sleeping mattress that is with good quality, the description can actually be different from one person to another. What we can say is that the good mattress that can be used by you depends on what you need. We say that if you do have medical needs, then when you go around roaming shops, you might want to inquire about their orthopedic mattress for sale.

You see, special needs require special care, right? And as each body has a unique body shape, in order to get the best spine or back support, it would be best to buy one of the best memory foam mattress in Singapore. Why? Because what's amazing about these types of foams is that they adjust according to the curves of someone’s body. But you do not have to worry and think that if you sleep on the bed beside a family member, the bed would bend over or roll to the center. They wouldn't. Add to that that these beds go back to their original shape in the morning. This means that using them could not be “exclusive.” This means that all of the family can use it. Do not worry about spending too much as these beds are really affordable. 

The Power of Research and Development to Make the World a Better Place

February 1, 2018

Due to the fact that nothing in life is set in stone and the winds of fate shift without a moment’s notice, people need to prepare for the squalls and storms that they will surely encounter in life especially when they finally leave the warmth and comfort of their parent’s house and attempt to survive on the outside world on their own. And that is the reason why they need to study hard in school, burn the midnight oil fervently, dedicate their energy to their studies and learn as much as they can from their teachers and professors because quality education will give them the weapons, armour and tools that they need to survive the onslaught of seemingly insurmountable challenges in life. After everything has been said and done, all of their sacrifices and years of zealous dedication will not go unrewarded and they will land the dream job in the career path that they have always wanted.

Aside from doctors without borders who use their skilled hands to heal their countless patients who are suffering from different kinds of afflictions as well as gallant lawyers who fight for truth and justice in courtrooms, researchers and inventors use their r&d fund to look for answers to the questions that we face as well as solutions to the problems that plague people around the globe. These people work behind the scenes and are the unsung heroes of this modern and age who dedicate their life, passion as well as all the energy and strength that they can muster from their mind and body to make the world a better place for the next generations to come. And that is the reason why instead of working all of their life on things that bring death and despair to their fellowmen like weapons of mass destruction for the paramilitaries around the world, they should devote every ounce of their being to bring peace, happiness and healing to this world.

First and foremost, they should use their Singapore research grant in looking for alternative and sustainable sources of energy that can really change the lives of poor and unfortunate people living in marginalized communities around the world especially in third-world countries like
Cambodia, Ivory Coast and Somalia. Instead of consuming crude oil, gasoline and other fossil fuels to power up their factories, homes and vehicles, people can use other sources of renewable and environment-friendly energy like solar panels, geothermal power plants, windmills and hydroelectric dams. This will also considerably lessen the pollution that poisons Mother Nature which will certainly translate to a better and brighter future for the next generations to come.

Aside from developing different sources of energy that will lower our dependency on crude oil, diesel and other fossil fuels, scientists and researchers can also use their intellect and mental faculties to help develop medicines that can will save suffering patients from deadly afflictions. Last but not the least, they can also research about different ways to create affordable housing materials that are cheap but at the same time durable so that poor folks can finally have a place that they can call their own where they are safe and sound from the harsh elements of the outside world.

Determining the Best Type of Hinge

January 25, 2018

Kitchen cabinets are usually often judged and appreciated for the material and aesthetic design only and not for how it was crafted or what’s the quality of its component parts such as its hinges. Although hinges’ sheer size and placement in a cabinet makes it easy to ignore them, in terms of durability and functionality, there are cabinet door hinges that must be appreciated.

Usually found in a variety of brands in hardware stores and even on online shopping websites, hinges play an important role not just in the performance but also in the aesthetic and appearance of the cabinets as well.  In order to determine the best and most appropriate cabinet door hinges here in Singapore there are a few considerations that should be kept in mind.

First, there is the type of cabinet to consider. In Singapore, face frame kitchen cabinets incorporates a frame that is attached in the front of the case and cabinet hinges are mounted to this face frame and is a common American cabinet design. Frameless cabinets on the other hand, are essentially four sided box and hinges are mounted to the interior of the cabinet and is very popular in Europe particularly as frameless cabinets with sliding doors which is very common in Singapore.

And then there is a need to determine door overlay which refers to the position of the door in relation to the cabinet opening. The configurations for both types of cabinets are slightly different. Overlay doors completely covers the cabinet opening and overlapping the cabinet case or frame on all sides. Inset doors fit entirely inside the cabinet opening and sit on the cabinet sides or frames when in closed position. Partial inset configuration is slightly overlapping the cabinet opening on all sides, but a shoulder machined door edges at the back of the door allows part of the door thickness to sit inside the opening. Full overlay door covers all of the front edge of the cabinet. In relation, it is important to consider spacing. A completely opening door over-lay means you have plenty of space enough to accommodate swinging doors. For limited spaces, sliding wardrobe doors are still ideal and this is a popular kitchen cabinet type in Singapore.

And finally, there are the types of hinges to choose from. There are butt hinge which is the traditional hinge composed of two pivoting plates that are held together by a pin, deluxe butt hinges have elongated mounting slots which allows vertical and horizontal adjustment for a perfect fit, and knife hinges are shaped like scissors where half of the hinge mounts at the top edge or bottom of the door while the other half mounts horizontally at the cabinet edge directly above and below of the door.  And then there are European hinges are a type of concealed hinge specially designed for frameless Euro-style cabinets but also available for framed cabinet designs. They have mounting plates that secures to the cabinet and cups that seats in a circular mortise that is drilled at the back of the door. The advantage of these hinges is that they offer adjustment in two or three directions, making it easy to align the door. Tow hinges are enough for many average sized cabinets but for large or heavy doors, it is safer to use three as with most standard cabinets as is the usual case in Singapore

Three Rules in Buying the Perfect Sofa

January 22, 2018

When we set off to buy your new sofa, it like going on a very long journey where a lot of decision making has to be made. We ask a lot of questions pertaining to the styles, brands, types, and features. It’s like choosing a gadget that you’re familiar and too comfortable to use, but you were forced to understand all the unfamiliar jargon of its specifications to get the best quality.

To help you understand this unfamiliar territory, here are three important guidelines to take note on before you embark on a long and tedious journey when buying your new sofa:

Take Note of Your Space

When buying a sofa, the first thing to do is to measure your space. You want to make sure that your sofa doesn't take up the whole room or that the room doesn't swallow your sofa. Get out the measuring tape to get an idea of what kind of footprint your sofa will be taking up.

In buying a sofa in Singapore, the standard measure of sofas are just like in any other parts of the world:

  • Side Chair: Seats one person.
  • Loveseat: Seats two people.
  • 3-seater Sofa: Seats three people.
  • Sectional: Seats between 5-7 people or more.

Research the Materials

As with the knowing the specificity of your desired gadget, knowing the materials on which your desired sofa is made of can narrow down your choices. Some important features to research on when you buy sofa in Singapore are as follows:

  • Frame Materials

Most frames of Singapore sofa are made out of wood, but some have metal frames. Frames made of particle boards are the cheapest but also the most fragile and lightest of all materials as it is mostly made of wood. Meanwhile, hard wood frames are made of solid wood which are more durable but undesirably heavy in case you love to move around furniture. There are also hard wood materials that are kiln dried which makes the material much stronger and durable. Of course, there are those that are made of metal, light, easy to move and the hardest frame. However, metal frames can bend over time and a bit more expensive.

  • Frame Assembly

Next is frame assembly or how the frame is put together. It can either be stapled frame assembly, the most inexpensive but not as durable, or double doweled frame assembly, a higher quality but definitely more expensive.

  • Cushion

There are many different types of cushion, from low density foam (the cheapest) to high density foam (more expensive yet firmer to sit) and mix such as down cushions, hybrid cushions and back cushion types

  • Upholstery

Upholstery pertains to the fabric that goes around the sofa. Upholstery can be linen, leather, tweed, polyester, or any number of materials.

Visualize your Style

Just like your furniture, sofas in Singapore come in many different styles. Whatever your style is, it is important to remember the 3 Ss – space, symmetry and storage. Make sure that you pick out a sofa that works with your overall design: It encompasses the right space, in symmetry with your other furniture, and can easily be stored or moved as you deem fit. Some styles include the a) modern ones which often offers simple design, typically firmer cushions, and angular lines; b) traditional one which are usually ornate frames, tufted, and comes in curved lines; and c) contemporary ones with clean lines & traditional accents.

Packing Materials and Litho Printing

December 30, 2017

When it comes to using protective packaging for sending fragile goods there should only be one choice, compared to traditional packaging materials such as Polystyrene, Polyethylene and Pulp Mold and that is to use inflatable air bags.

Advances in food processing and food packaging in Singapore play a primary role in keeping the Singaporean food supply among the safest in the world. Simply stated, packaging maintains the benefits of food processing after the process is complete, enabling foods to travel safely for long distances from their point of origin and still be wholesome at the time of consumption. However, packaging technology must balance food protection with other issues, including energy and material costs, heightened social and environmental consciousness, and strict regulations on pollutants and disposal of municipal solid waste.

Municipal solid waste (MSW) consists of items commonly thrown away, including packages, food scraps, yard trimmings, and durable items such as refrigerators and computers. Legislative and regulatory efforts to control packaging are based on the mistaken perception that packaging is the major burden of MSW. Instead, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that approximately only 31% of the MSW generated in 2005 was from packaging-related materials, including glass, metal, plastic, paper, and paperboard—a percentage that has remained relatively constant since the 1990s despite an increase in the total amount of MSW. No packaging sources such as newsprint, telephone books, and office communication generate more than twice as much MSW. Food is the only product class typically consumed 3 times per day by every person. Consequently, food packaging accounts for almost two-thirds of total packaging waste by volume. Moreover, food packaging is approximately 50% by weight of total packaging sales. Although the specific knowledge available has changed since publication of the 1st Scientific Status Summary on the relationship between packaging and MSW the issue remains poorly understood, complicating efforts to address the environmental impact of discarded packaging materials. This article describes the role of food packaging in the food supply chain, the types of materials used in food packaging, and the impact of food packaging on the environment. In addition, this document provides an overview of EPA's solid waste management guidelines and other waste management options. Finally, it addresses disposal methods and legislation on packaging disposal.

Litho printing is well suited for printing both text and illustrations in short to medium length runs of up to 1,000,000 impressions. Typical products printed with offset printing processes include: General commercial printing Quick printing, Newspapers Books, Business Forms Financial and Legal Documents, and Offset Lithographic Printing Process Overview.

Lithography is an "offset" printing technique. Ink is not applied directly from the printing plate (or cylinder) to the substrate as it is in gravure, flexography and letterpress. Ink is applied to the printing plate to form the "image" (such as text or artwork to be printed) and then transferred or "offset to a rubber "blanket". The image on the blanket is then transferred to the substrate (typically paper or paperboard) to produce the printed product.

On sheet-fed presses, the substrate is fed into the press one sheet at a time at a very high speed. Web fed presses print on a continuous roll of substrate, or web, which is later cut to size. There is a total of 3 types of offset printing: non-heat set sheet fed, heat set, and non-heat set web offset. The difference between heat set and non-heat set is primarily dependent on the type of ink and how it is dried.
