no sign board restaurant

no sign board restaurant

Chuckle all you may, but this unusual name for a restaurant was concocted by the patrons of No Signboard Seafood themselves with several branches in Singapore, Jakarta and Macau. Founded in 1981, it is now known island-wide for its creative and original recipes. Besides the chilli crab, the crispy cereal crayfish is a hot favourite and it’s no wonder. The juicy and succulent crayfish encrusted with sweet cereal is a pleasant burst of flavours while the crispness of the dish makes it a joy to dive into. The Hokkien-style steamed fish goes well with rice, especially if you’re fond of the natural sweetness of silky tofu.

We arranged two condolences flower stand measuring 1.5m wide by 1.8m tall each for the funeral as featured in the article. Below is the extra large condolences stand.

Brassica Flower Hand Bouquet

Brassica is a members of this genus are collectively known either as cabbages or mustards. Crops from this genus are sometimes called cole crops, a phrase derived from the Latin caulis, meaning stem or cabbage. The Brassica group includes many familiar vegetables and “flowers” such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, rutabaga and turnip — some grown specifically for their ornamental leaves. Brassica as some may regard it as ‘gorgeous’ cabbage.

Brassica come in three basic colours — greens, creamy whites and violets. They have tough stems and leaves and they remain fresh as cut “flowers” for a solid week, making them a wonderful option for floral arranging and each bloom is sizable enough to make a hand bouquet – like the one below – we used a large purple brassica mixed with wild colored flowers, nosa, purple caspia with iron leaves. We peel the outer layers of leaves back, one at a time. Carefully working the same towards the many bulk in the inner petals. By doing so, it accentuates the already beautiful brassica to it majestically blooms. This give that unique and sophisticated look. It stir up the drama factor ten fold.

10 Tips on How to Prolong the Lives of Cut Flowers

by Yuka Goh, 24hrsCityFlorist.com

Many people may avoid purchasing cut flowers for fear of them dying easily. However, here are 10 secrets on how to prolong the lives of cut flowers to make them worth every cent they were paid for.

1. Always make sure that there is fresh water for the flowers every day. Once the water turns murky, it shows that there have been bacteria growth in the water and it will shorten the lives of the flowers.

2. As much as it is important to supply flowers with clean water, the vase must also be clean. Before placing the flowers into the vase, wash the vase with warm water and soap to get rid of bacteria.

3. Sometimes leaves will grow at the lower areas of the stem and will be submerged in the water. Remove these leaves as they promote bacterial growth and thus are detrimental to the lives of flowers.

4. Diluting flower preservatives in the water will also be good in prolonging the lives of cut flowers. Flower preservatives contain bleach which helps to prevent bacteria growth and supplies water and food to the flowers for them to survive and bloom. Flower preservatives can be bought or made at home with some basic household items.

5. It is important to cut the stems of the flowers daily. This will help the flowers absorb water and nutrients efficiently. Avoid damaging the stems while cutting them by using a sharp knife. Cut diagonally for a larger surface area of the stem to be exposed. This also ensures that the stem does not rest flat on the bottom of the vase, thus steady absorption of minerals occur, allowing flowers to survive.

6. It is better to keep cut flowers in a cool place, away from strong sunlight. While sunlight is good for growing flowers, it will cause cut flowers to dry out faster and thus shorten their lives.

7. Do not place cut flowers near ripe fruits. These rip fruits contain chemicals that may cause the flowers to bloom prematurely and cause them to die earlier.

8. It is not advisable to expose the flowers to cigarette smoke as well. The smoke will cause a layer of fine particles to accumulate on the surface of the flower, clogging the stomata of the plants which then affects the respiration and transpiration of the plant. By not smoking around flowers, it will prolong the lifespan of the flowers.

9. Remember to spray the flowers with some water daily. This will help to keep the flowers dewy and fresh.

10. A little bit of love and care will go a long way in keeping your cut flowers alive. Sometimes people forget to change the water and this will lead to the plants dying fast. Always remember that flowers are living things as well, so shower them with care and they will repay you in the form of its exquisite beauty.

Chinese Valentine’s Day 2013

The Chinese Valentine’s Day is on the seventh day of the 7th month in the traditional Chinese lunar calendar, whose name is “七夕” (Qixi). The Chinese Valentine’s Day for 2013 is on 13th of August.

Chinese Valentine’s Day originated from a romantic fable about two lovers: the seventh daughter of the Goddess of Heaven and a simple cowherd. It is said that the cowherd from the mundane world and weaving goddess from heaven loved each other. But love between the goddess and human beings was forbidden. They were separated by the Milky Way according to the command of the Queen Mother of the West.

But the Queen Mother of the West also showed her mercy to the couple. They were permitted to meet once a year, and the cowherd and weaving goddess became the stars of Altair and Vega. They could meet on the seventh night of the seventh lunar month every year. The magpies were moved by their true love and the birds formed a bridge for the couple to meet every year.

Qixi festival

Qixi festival

Their beautiful tale is wildly known in China and the Qixi festival is passed down as a tradition from generation to generation. Every year on the Qixi Festival, many lovers would pray for their love and happiness. Now a days in China, lovers release hung ming lanterns, and make good wishes of faithful love between them. So why not celebrate Valentine’s day twice this year? Celebrate this day with your love one with Chinese Valentine Flowers today. Fresh flowers are still the most common and meaningful gift for Chinese Valentine’s Day. We hand crafted this special Chinese valentine bouquet for this special occasion.

Valentine’s 2013

This year we saw Valentine’s Day falling within the same week as the Chinese New Year. Given the strong family oriented celebration, coupled with the long holidays, many had taken the opportunity to travel overseas. The repercussion? We believe many people had given Valentine’s Day a miss for the more important and busy Chinese new year celebration. Hence, even with the wider variety of designs and prices, we saw lesser people buying flowers for their loved ones this year. Nevertheless, as with every year, we enjoyed ourselves during this season arranging orders for Valentine’s moments. Many of our florists though admitted that it is hard work but had equally enjoyed themselves working alongside many other fellow florists and friends.

Condolence Flower

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 shows those grieving how the life of the deceased touched the life of the one sending the flowers.

There is no one best sympathy flowers to give. Many people have their preferences and their favorites. We created this simple yet elegant condolence floral stand layered with white ribbons. Soothing tall condolence flower stand of chrysanthemum & poms speaks of comfort to the bereaved family when words seems too difficult to express. This arrangement is designed with an extended height using towering pandana leaves. Cream white ribbons specially decorated on top of an elegant khaki green box.

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

Singapore Florist – Lily & Rose Bouquet by 24Hrs City Florist

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.

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.
