The Chinese Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year is without a doubt one of the most important celebrations in Singapore. This is in part due to the large Chinese population residing here in Singapore.
This Chinese new year is the year of the Pig. And many Chinese families are already sprucing up their homes by adding fresh flowers and plants. Why? Because flower blossoms are believed to bring fortune and prosperity, according to the Chinese saying 花開富貴 (“blossom flowers bring wealth”). That is why flowery plants available from your local florists store – such as the pussy willow, anthoriums, cymbidiums, marigold, chrysanthemums, peonies and the tangerine tree make up the most popular favourites.
Take a walk down any street in Singapore during this festive new year and you’ll be treated to the non-stop chant of cymbals and the barrage of fireworks booming. Also, the Lunar New Year is a time where celebrants literally paint the town red.

According to Wikipedia, millennials (also known as Gen Y), are the generational demographic cohort following Gen X and preceding Gen Z. It’s no secret that millennials have very different preferences in terms of lifestyle and purchasing habits, so an interesting question would be whether they still like receiving a flower delivery and what bouquets do they really want?
Do they still visit florists for bouquet delivery Singapore? We get to the root of the question by asking millennials themselves through the platform most commonly associated with them – social media (Instagram, facebook, twitter). Some of the answers from the total sample pool of 30 Singaporean millennials might shock you.
To start off, one might want to clarify what the definition of the term “millennial is”. Simply put, there’s no fixed age to define who can be termed a “Millennial” but most agree that the term applies to individuals who reached adulthood around the turn of the 21st century. Those aged 35 and below can be considered millennials as well, making it a rather broad range. When one thinks of millennials, some characteristic traits attached to them that comes to mind would be more open-minded, self-expressive, upbeat and also more selfish. This could stem from their upbringing in a more liberal and open society as compared to the past but also mainly due to the societal habits and technological developments that have shaped their perceptions growing up.
It is that time of the year again where love is in the air, flowers and roses bloom to the tune of love songs and ballads.

Christmas in the western countries brings up images of snow, gifts, Christmas trees, and all the clichés you’ve come to expect. Here in Singapore, snow is one thing you won’t see, but that doesn’t mean there’s any less Christmas joy. Walk along festive roads like Orchard Road spotting stores and shopping malls embracing the spirit of the holiday in a way you never have before.
If you’re new to Singapore though, you may be wondering how to spend your Christmas. Or perhaps you’re a Singaporean wanting some Christmas ideas. Check out our ideas to find the best places and activities for a festive Christmas and a joyful holiday in Singapore.
1. Spending time with family
It isn’t all about gifts and snowball fights. In Singapore, there are tons of ways to spend a little time with your family, even if you’re doing something as simple as putting up a Christmas tree. You can buy natural fresh real Christmas trees in various sizes from local florists, supermarket Gold storage or Ikea in Singapore. Yes they come with that lovely Christmas-tree smell that adds a little more Christmassy into the home. Some florists or other companies may provide Christmas tree decorating services, helping you set them up so you can enjoy the tree without spending time putting it together.
When you learn that a friend or relative has lost a loved one, your first reaction is to want to offer and extend your condolences. In Singapore, there are a few ways to conveying condolence messages but most commonly, people send their condolences by giving condolence wreath or condolence flowers.
Flowers for condolences are not meant to take away the pain from a grieving family. However, this gesture is a good way to let other family members and friends know that they are not alone in their grief; that they have got someone by their side. It is an honorable gesture, a gesture of comfort and kindness, and one of respect. The act of sending condolence flower along with a thoughtful message shows those grieving how the life of the deceased touched the life of the one sending the flowers.
Flowers have always been a way to express all kinds of sentiments, be it romantic, platonic or even a form of condolence. There is a bouquet suited for every occasion – which makes flowers such versatile gifts. On top of that, new innovative bouquet arrangements are always emerging, making sure that flowers never become a cliché.
It is a widely-known fact that different flowers represent distinct emotions. When put together as a flower bouquet, they can send across a plethora of messages. The classic red rose is a prime example of this. Typically when presented in a bunch, they symbolise a timeless love. However, they can portray other images when paired with other flowers. When arranged in a bouquet with fresh springtime tulips, the image of a light, youthful romance is painted.
The characteristics of a flower bouquet are wrapping style, choice or type of flowers and foliage, as well as miscellaneous items that can be added to spruce up an individual bouquet.
We anonymously surveying 50 Singaporean ladies. 27 of them were between the ages of 18-24, 13 of them were between the ages of 25-34 and 10 of them were between the ages of 35-44. After analysing the results of the survey, we compiled a list of five bouquets that are known to impress.
Finding love can be difficult for many of us, and making that love last can prove to be just as hard. Regardless of your age or the status of your relationship, whether you have been dating for a short time, a long time, are engaged, or already married, every relationship encounters difficult times or can use some spicing up every now and again.
Many men often feel that women are difficult to understand or that there isn’t anything they can do to save a relationship. But there are actually many things a man can do. There are many ways that you can improve your love life and many things you can do to make this happen.
Flowers are beautiful subjects to photograph. The question is, can our smartphones do it justice? In this time and age, literally everyone has a mobile or smartphone in their pocket and that’s great because it means that we can capture anything on-the-go. Though some still prefer using the professional DSLRs or compact cameras to take shots but if you don’t have a DSLR or compact camera with you, it is not going to do you any good. As the saying goes “The best camera is the one with you”. The big DSLRs are great but if it’s too big to fit into your bag or purse, you probably not going to carry with you. And if it is sitting in your house, you can’t take any pictures with it. That’s why it comes as no surprise, most of us whip out our mobiles or smartphones when we need to take a picture.
So, if you’re someone who loves taking shots of flowers on your phone, read on to get 16 tips for creative flower mobile photography.
