Chinese Valentine’s Day – 23 Aug 2012

Today may be a common day for most of you, but for Chinese people, it has special meanings. It is the Double Seventh Festival, which is considered the Chinese Valentine’s Day. There’s a beautiful but sad story behind.

Long ago, there was a boy, clever, diligent and honest. Orphaned at an early age, he was very poor. However, he adopted an abandoned old buffalo, which proved to be very loyal and helped him a lot. The two enjoyed a good relationship so villagers came to know him by the name of the Cowherd.

At the same time, the youngest of the seven celestial princesses had grown tired of the secluded life in the heavenly palace. She longed for a mundane life she often saw down beneath her. That was a very pervert idea to cherish in heaven. Yet, determined to pursue her own happiness, she sneaked out and descended onto the earth and to the sudden happiness of the Cowherd with whom she had fallen in love.

They married and had a lovely boy and a girl. While the Cowherd worked in the fields with his old pal the buffalo, the heavenly princess weaved at home to help support the family. Villagers all admired her excellent weaving skill. She was now well-known as the Weaving Girl.

The family lived peacefully and happily until the girl‘s celestial royal family found her missing and traced her to the village. (By the way, it is popularly believed that a day in heaven accounts for years on the earth. The years she had spent with the Cowherd was but a day or so by the celestial calendar.)

The Celestial Empress was in such a wrath that she gave her daughter only two choices: to go back home or see her husband and children destroyed. She had no choice but to leave.

The old buffalo suddenly began to speak to the astonished young man, saying that he was dying in no time and asking him to use his hide as a vehicle to catch up with his wife. And off he sailed to heaven taking his young son and daughter in two baskets.
Fearing that the young man would catch up, the empress took out her hair spin and drew a big river across the sky, known to the Chinese as the Silvery River (the Milky Way in the West). She wanted to separate the family forever.
However, all the magpies in the world, deeply touched by the story, came to their rescue. Each year, on the seventh day of the seventh month, they would flock together to form a bridge so that the family may enjoy a brief reunion.

The day, 7th July of lunar calendar, became a traditional festival as the story hands down. And impressed by the story, a famous poet in Song Dynasty named Qin Guan wrote a beautiful poem for them:

Clouds float like works of art;
Stars shoot with grief at heart.
Across the Milky Way the Cowherd meets the Maid,
When autumn’s Golden Wind embraces Dew of Jade,
All the love scenes on earth, however many, fade.
Their tender love flows like a stream;
This happy date seems but a dream.
Can they bear a separate homeward way?
If love between both sides can last for age,
Why need they stay together night and day?

Every human will die and every story will be forgetten someday, but the pursuit for love and freedom will never fade.
Happy Chinese Valentine’s Day to everyone and hope the world would be just like the old saying, all shall be well, and Jack shall have Jill.

Wishing All Our Muslim Customer Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

The Joy of Fasting

After 30 days of dawn-to-dusk fasting during Ramadan, the first three days of Hari Raya Aidilfitri are celebrated on a grand scale. While Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations are colourful and fascinating, you should take note that the fasting month leading up to the holiday is probably the best time to experience the Malay culture and heritage.

For Muslims, the month of Ramadan is devoted to worship, charitable deeds and acts of compassion. To purify one’s body and soul, they practice abstinence from food and drink during the day. When the sun sets, families and friends often gather to break the fast with evening prayers and meals, and the streets of Geylang Serai and Kampong Glam come alive with performances and street bazaars. If you’re in Singapore during Ramadan, this is the best times to soak in the festivities. Head to the Malay Village in Geylang Serai or make your way to Kampong Glam, an area that was once home to Singapore’s Malay royalty. Both ethnic enclaves attract Singaporeans of all races, and wherever you’re from, you’re welcome to take part in the celebrations.

Besides the glittering street light-ups and traditional decorations, you’ll find street stalls that open from early afternoon till late into the night, selling a wide variety of traditional food, fashion, textiles and handicrafts. From tailor-made traditional dresses known as ‘baju kurung’ to hand-woven cushion covers, from affordable Persian carpets to delightful flower arrangements, you’re bound to find a keepsake of the festivities. In Geylang Serai, you’ll also find stalls that personalise key chains and door signs for the home, all engraved and painted by hand on finely-crafted wood.

The main attraction of the bazaars is, of course, the food. A trip to the bazaars is simply not complete without sampling the variety of traditional Malay cakes and pastries called ‘kueh-kueh’. Take your pick from sweet snacks like pineapple tarts, ‘ondeh-ondeh’ made with palm sugar filled centres, and ‘putu piring’, a steamed dessert served with grated coconut.

When Hari Raya Aidilfitri arrives, Muslim families often dress in the same colour to signify their unity. The men wear a loose shirt with trousers known as ‘baju Melayu’ and the women wear the quintessential ‘baju kurung’. If you’re lucky enough, you might get an invite to a home-cooked Hari Raya Aidilfitri feast. A wide variety of spicy dishes are traditionally served during the three-day celebration, including spicy beef ‘rendang’, vegetable curry ‘sayur lodeh’ and Malay rice cakes called ‘ketupat’.

If you’re in Singapore during Ramadan, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the rich Malay heritage, and when Hari Raya Aidilfitri comes around, greet everyone with a joyous “Selamat Hari Raya”.

Puppy Bouquet – Rekindling Those Puppy Love Moments

Puppy Bouquet – Rekindling Those Puppy Love Moments

We wanted to create someonething different from the regular bouquets we have been making all these years. We gather our florists and told ourselves that it must be firstly, unique, adorable yet appealing to the masses. A bouquet that speaks of love with a tinge of playfulness. We had to be bold and sassy. We decided on to create a puppy bouquet. Admittedly, our first few attempts needed more tweaking and after a few trials, we finally perfected the puppy bouquet we could confidently say we are really proud of. We introduced our puppy bouquet along with our puppy love theme.

puppy bouquet

puppy bouquet

Here’s a written review from our florist Jaslyn:

What comes to your mind when you come across the term “Puppy Love”?

Thinking back, most of us have found this experience to be a memorable and perhaps, cute one. One that would make us smile whenever we think about it. One most of us have been through during our younger days. An infatuation, a what seemed like an irresistible attraction… that racing heart, sweaty palms, cold feet, and stammering when that very special someone makes a conversation.

The Puppy Love bouquet designed and created by the florists in 24Hrs City Florist have seamlessly nailed the idea of making one feel the indescribable affection all over again. The clever and outstanding design has made it hard to take one’s eyes away. Whether or not the receiver of this bouquet has a puppy, he or she would be so drawn to it that everyone we know whom have received it have expressed that they feel more inclined to taking care of the flowers as compared to receiving a classic flower bouquet.

Blue Rose : How To Prepare It – by 24Hrs City Florist

We created this video to share with our florists on how to dye, treat and prepare blue rose for arrangement. When done correctly, the colour blue will turn out fully and evenly absorbed.

Blue rose cannot be grown naturally, at least not yet. Nature has it that roses, lack the particular pigmentation that is needed to produce the colour blue. As such, alternative methods have been thought of to “create” a blue rose.

This normally means that a white or cream or ivory rose is cut prematurely, and dipped into blue dye, thus gradually turning the petals blue.

For years, florists all over have searched for a true blue rose, but to no avail. The quest for the absolute blue rose has been compared to the Christian hunt for the Holy Grail. As such, the blue rose is considered to be the Holy Grail of the rose world.

This association wraps the blue rose in an aura of mystery – which is the main significance of blue roses.

The fact that their appearance (albeit through unnatural methods) defies the course of nature makes them mysterious and ambiguous.

This mysteriously vague quality of blue roses is accentuated by the fact that blue roses that we have today aren’t real. Their existence is purely fabricated, and this makes them even more mysterious and even creates a sense of surrealism.

In short, blue roses can symbolize an appreciation for all things enigmatic

Size does matter. That’s why we had arranged this contrasting mix of red roses with casablanca while lilies in a hand held bouquet. A large bouquet to remind her how much you love her. We are a Singapore florist providing 24 hours flower delivery anywhere in Singapore

Note: In esoteric and mystery teachings, lily meaning s include, Development, Growth, Progress, Freedom & Purity. The lily also holds symbolism of purity and innocence. The lily is a symbolic flower of health and provision.
The Romans adopted the rose as a symbol love, secrecy, and beauty. Roman dining-room ceilings were displayed with roses, reminding guests to keep secret what had been said during dinner. The Latin words sub rosa means “under the rose” and to this day means “confidentiality.” Roses were also part of Greek mythology. The Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, is said to have created the rose when shedding her tears and the blood of her lover Adonis.

There is no eternity in life, the end of the road of every cherished moment with a lost friend, a family member, or our beloved ones.

Often condolence wreaths or funeral flowers are delivered when you are not able to personally able to attend the wake or service.

When flowers are arranged in a neat and orderly fashion, nothing in your floral gift could be seen as inappropriate. Among the most popular choices of flower arrangements are condolences flower stands, wreaths, crosses and hearts. Smaller table arrangements and hand bouquets, shref are also a good and more affordable option.

And when flowers become the only channel we use to speak to the departed, different floral colours convey different meanings. White, for example, represents perpetual peace, purity or a new beginning. Purplish blue, on the other hand, gives an essence of calmness and comfort. These two colours are the most ideal choices when arranging funeral fresh floral bouquets and baskets. Other floral colours include yellow for friendship, lavender for elegance, purple for honour and royalty, and pink for gentleness and subtle joy.

The colour red or pink are occasionally delivered as funeral flowers to the family of the deceased who may be a lady. Toys or dolls can be added as part of the flower arrangement in the event of a younger person who passed away. As solemn as a funeral rite ought to be, floral arrangements do not need to be sober and bland. Sometimes, mixing bright colours could portray our warmest and sincerest thoughts to the departed. Yes, losing someone may be a very painful process. But on a more profound note, we celebrate life and the memories we shared with the ones we’ve lost. And sometimes, a subtle grin appears in our faces as streams of uplifting memories come to mind.

These flowers offer a comforting reminder that you are there to share their grief. Flowers also give a soothing effect with their colours and radiance.

Giving Flowers Say A Lot Of About The Sender

Rutgers University researchers examine what the gifts we choose say about who we are and whether they affect how we are perceived. The research reveals that those who send flowers, in comparison to other gifts, are viewed as caring, successful, and emotionally intelligent people.

Flower Givers Perceived as Successful and Caring

Giving Flowers

Birthdays, congratulations, thank you, get well, I love you, thinking of you, sympathy. Each day, millions of gifts are exchanged by people who want to send thoughtful regards to deserving friends and loved ones. According to the research, the presents we pick to convey our special messages say a lot about us.

Rutgers University researcher Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., director of the university’s Human Emotions Lab, explored what the gifts we choose say about who we are and whether they affect how we are perceived. The research reveals that those who send flowers, in comparison to other gifts, are viewed as successful, caring and emotionally intelligent people. More specific findings include:

Both men and women who give flowers are perceived as happy, achieving, strong, capable and courageous people;

Men and women come across as more emotionally intelligent; they give the impression they can effectively express their feelings and take time to understand the feelings of others; and Female floral gifters are viewed as more appreciative of beauty and nature.

Flowers Are Message of Love & Care


“Our findings show that you can influence and change what people think of you in a significant way through the gifts you give,” says Haviland-Jones. “That news is particularly important to those interested in enhancing friendships and romances, even business relationships.”

Discovering the scientific power of flowers is not new to Haviland-Jones. Previous Rutgers University research conducted by her team found that flowers create instant delight and happiness, and increase enjoyment and life satisfaction. Specifically, upon receiving a gift of flowers, the female study participants responded with true smiles and reported positive moods that lasted for days. The presence of flowers also led to increased contact with family and
friends.

Any time is a good time to give flowers

“Flowers have evolved to activate positive emotional responses from people,” says Haviland-Jones. “Each bloom has the potential to put a smile on our face and sway our opinion of a friend, colleague or loved one. That’s powerful.”

M.J. Ryan, award-winning author of the Random Acts of Kindness book series and The Giving Heart, uses cutting-edge science to bring out the best in people. In her books, she teaches individuals how gratitude and generosity can result in greater happiness, health and feelings of human connectivity.

“Gift recipients experience compelling connections with givers, and the positive link is particularly evident in the exchange of flowers,” says Ryan. “In my everyday work with individuals, CEOs and leadership teams at some of the world’s top global companies, I see the powerful implications of gratitude and appreciation.”

According to Ryan, a simple call to the florist can make a big impact beyond conventional gifting occasions. Some of her favorite, unexpected gifting opportunities include surprise recognition for a job well done; an “I miss you” gift for an out-of-town family member; and an advance “thanks for hosting us” gesture before visiting a friend’s house.

“A successful person is not necessarily someone with a lot of money and material goods, but rather someone who is in tune with people and knows how to touch their hearts,” says Ryan. “I can think of no other item besides flowers that evokes such positive feelings and perceptions for both the giver and the recipient.”

Secretaries Week

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary’s Day was created in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. Klemfuss recognized the importance and value of the position to a company or business. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss, promoted the values and importance of the job of secretaries. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of secretaries.

Today, the title is changing and evolving. But, the recognition is equally important. There are two new terms in use today. They are “Administrative Professionals” and “Executive Admins”. The two names sometimes mean different roles and responsibilities to different companies. Both are broader terms, that encompass more positions than the original “Secretary” role.

The name change recognizes and acknowledges that the role has changed significantly since 1952, and for the better at that. And in Harry Klemfuss’ day, these postions were the realm of women. Today, you find some males in these positions.

The most common ways of recognizing your Administrative Professional(s) today are:

Flowers
Cards, often with shopping gift certificates
Take them to lunch
Candies
Assorted Gift Baskets

Hey Jerry,

Hello & Greetings from the United States of America.

My girlfriend Evelyn received the flowers as can be seen in the attached photographs. I think she really liked them a lot. Thank You for doing a beautiful job in putting the floral arrangement together and delivering it to her on the same day. I appreciated it this very much.

I am hoping that I did indeed touch Evelyn’s heart and conveyed my innermost feeling to her. Everyday that goes by, I fall deeper in love with her.

Thank You again for the job well-done. Of course, 24 Hours City Florist will be my first choice in the future when I send flowers to the Republic of Singapore!

Regards,

Carl A. Mack

Hello My Singaporean Friends!

On February 22nd, 2010 I ordered flowers to be delivered to my girlfriend “Evelyn”. Recently I have come to fall in love with her. She is a co-worker of mine. Unfortunately, I live in the United States of America.

All I ask is that you folks please prepare Evelyn’s floral arrangement with great care and love. These flowers are the only way I am able to express my deepest feelings for her until I travel to Singapore in person.

Also, Evelyn begins her workday at 9:00 A.M. The sooner 24 Hours City Florist can deliver to her, the more time she will have to admire her surprise delivery!

Thank You in advance for taking care of me. This American is in love with a Singaporean Princess!

Sincerely,

Carl A. Mack.

A Warm Gift of Bear

Just like flowers, teddy bears are loved by women of all ages. Many women love to receive teddy as gifts, especially from their love ones – even if they never tell you so. Teddy bears symbolize warmth, comfort and care and always make a perfect companion on her happy days as much as the days when fortune does not seem to be on her side. So, if you are planning to send her a gift, consider sending a teddy bear together with a cute box of chocolate & red rose as a gift for her, chances are you are sending the right gift.

We thought of calling it a summer gift basket where this it is just handy enough to take away and share a light moment in an open lawn or at the beach. Summer is all year round in Singapore and anytime is a good time to send this gift basket for any celebration from birthdays to congratulations to thinking about you.

This powerful, well-ballanced wine offers a complex bouquet with a long finish and is a great partner for stew and stir fried dishes come with a pair of wine glasses and a box Swiss Lindt Chocolate (170g) in rustic rattan basket and fresh cheery flowers.

Mini Bear In Vase With Pink Roses at Only SGD78


We added this new gift arrangement with an adorable mini brown bear carring a red cushion heart in a glass vase with fresh sweet pink roses, hypericum, baby breath and foliage. This arrangement was only sole for our walk in customer at our outlet and since we had received many request to do something similar. Today, we decided put it up in our online store. At very special price of SGD78 with our Great Singapore Sale discount of $20. It is a steal!

Cymbidium Anthurium Galore


We created this new arrangement for the Kelantan Prince who recently was in Singapore. A artist creation that deliberately unveils the striking splendor of yellow coloured cymbidium combined with orange-yellow anthurium brought to the limelight by chili red equadorian roses. An arrangement fit for royalty.
