[Blog collaboration] Product Review: Ted-A-Car Air Fresheners


Ted-A-Car Air Freshener is an up-and-coming air freshener product from Thailand. The air fresheners come in the shape of a teddy bear with a twist. A break-through from traditional air fresheners that are bulky or common in designs.

 

These adorable freshener can be used in a car, restroom, closet, bedroom, bags and many more indoor places. It can last up to 30 days (sometimes more) depending on the environment it is exposed to. Just like a normal air freshener, it works on the principal of evaporation. The environment’s humidity and area of coverage plays a part in determining the air freshener’s lifetime. 


You may begin by slitting an opening in the plastic cover. Pull out the string and hang it freely to avoid staining of surrounding areas. Kindly avoid leaning on plastic, furniture or painted surfaces. Another way will be to slit a small opening big enough for the string to be pulled out, so that the scent will disseminate into the environment, keeping the plastic cover on as a separator.  

It is durable that it feels like wood, but it is made up of many layers of paper baked dry together. Please avoid washing it or letting it come into contact with water. Some flavors smell so yummy but Ted-A-Car is not edible! Keep out of children and pet’s reach to avoid them mistaking it for food.



It introduces more than 20 unique scents with each scent having its own teddy design. Unfortunately, some are manufactured in certain seasons and most of them are sold out. 

Some examples of flavors are:
Coconut | Pineapple | Popcorn | Hazelnut Macaron | Bubble Gum | Groom | Bride | Aroma Spa | Ocean | Strawberry | Blossom | Vanilla | Cola | Cantaloupe | New Car | Apple Candy | Caramel | Umeshu | Moroccan Candle | Lemon Ice Tea | 

 Snow Fresh Flavour

Mango Flavour

 Lavender Flavour
 
Cookie Vanilla Flavour

Each design and flavour are carefully designed and chosen to match your identity! I adore the different unique scents they offer with nice packaging. There are more than 20 unique scents for you to choose from. Hence, there will certainly be that few scents you like! 

A good gift ideas for corporate events, friends and loved ones!


Oh ya, with the many different teddy bear design, you may want to buy and collect them all! After the scent had finished, you can use it as a decor for your house, bag or anything you can think off. Bring these Ted-A-Car Air Freshener home today!

You may wish to email: ajsecretshop@gmail.com to order or enquire on the products!

The Angry Birds Movie Review


The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to. 



Personally, I feel that the plot is simple and predictable. The introductory scenes could have been improved as it appear dull without a rich content. However, it got more interesting with a good story build up that is commendable. 

The flow is nicely presented with a few humorous scenes. However, some of it appear 'trying too hard' for me. If you once played angry birds before, you will definitely relate better to the entire plot. A light-hearted and fun film to catch but do not put your expectations to high for it.

[Media Invitation] Preview Tasting of the Great Singapore Savour

Perfectly timed with Great Singapore Sale from 3 June 2016, Bay Hotel Singapore’s STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar is rolling out Great Singapore Savour where the brand new all-day dining menu is here to impress. Accentuating favourite local street food, with amazing twists and styles, and well-presented in palatable small plates, there is a wallet-friendly, shareworthy selection of about 20 (street-)smart treats priced from $7.90 to $12.90. 

 X.O. Scallop & Prawns Fried Rice
 ($9.90)

This dish is wok-fried with generous servings of prawns and scallops and masterfully wrapped in thin egg skin! I adore the texture of the fried rice that is nicely prepared. 

Salted Egg Lava Chicken Breast 
($9.90) 

A rather classic dish on its own. It is visually beautiful to see salted egg lava trickling down the tender chicken meat roll! 

Claypot Assam Fish Head
 ($18.90) 

Claypot Curry Fish Head 
($18.90)

Assam gravy or Indian curry which harmonizes perfectly with the recommended dishes of the savour-and-share genre. Personally, I prefer the Assam Fish Head for its light and slightly spicy yet sweet gravy which is so good!

Coffee Wings 
($7.90)

Deep-fried chicken mid joints with chef’s homemade hong kong style coffee jam, is believed to be the first in Singapore and only available at STREET 50. The smoky nuances of coffee balances the savoury sweet coating on the chicken wings, is a surprisingly good dish, even for the non-coffee drinkers.

Oyster Char Kway Teow ($12.90)

 Shrimp and Eggplant Sambal 
($8.90) 

A zi char delight of brinjals with stir-fried shrimp and spicy sambal. An rather appetising dish to begin with.

Cereal Prawns with Wasabi Dressing 
($9.90)

Crisp exterior and juicy interior with a mild savoury flavour. It tasted pretty good though it could have been better if it is less salty. Definitely, it goes well with the wasabi sauce.

 Soft Shell Crab with Salted Egg Dip 
($7.90) 

A deep-fried delight that is just as lip-smackingly great when accompanied with the fragrant, golden-hued salted egg cream. This is one of my favourite dish for the night.

Fresh Coconut Malibu 
$8.90

Fresh young coconut fruit with parisienne of mixed fruits, topped with coconut ice cream and served with fresh coconut juice!

Dine up to $50 and enjoy complimentary Fresh Coconut Malibu! Stand to WIN during the GSS period from 3 June to 14 August 2016:

The Truth Seekers 《真 探》 Drama Review


Veteran police officer, Bai Qing Xiong (Chen Han Wei), forms an agency called CCI which aims to crack unsolved cases. Through this agency, he hopes to give a proper closure to family members of the victims. He is a righteous man who is confident that all criminal will not escape the law. The CCI uses unorthodox methods to search for clues which eventually led them to the truth. 





Just finished watching The Truth Seekers 《真 探》. Personally, I feel that the story was good and kept me in suspense! In this drama, the detectives were observant and had a good analyzing skills in cracking those unsolved cases.

The different crime cases were nicely presented with an unexpected ending, even though some of it may appear somewhat coincidence and predictable. It got rather interesting when the investigators themselves, were linked to the cases as well. The drama had an unexpected twist towards the finale. The hidden truth was revealed when the evidence just fall into the pieces.

Hope to see more similar genre of drama being aired in channel 8! I am sure to watch it!
