Delivery services have proven its effectiveness and advertised advantages to Singapore with the unwavering significance and stay in all our daily lives.

In these times where travelling for food or commuting for necessary errands, like buying groceries, are seen as activities eating into our busy schedules, companies providing delivery services have become household names for aid in such fields.

Where words like “local food and drinks delivery” frequent on search engines, those like “flower delivery Singapore” are lesser seen, as the unsung heroes in such businesses continue their work to drive the growth in delivery services and fuel the connection in our daily lives.

After all, receiving a bouquet of flowers will always be a lovely surprise for a girl, no matter the time and day.

Flower gifting should hold a spot amongst the universal love languages. It is an act so commonly associated with the expression of love (be it romantic love, friendship, familial love), that if you see a person holding a flower bouquet, an immediate assumption would be that this lucky gal (or guy) is being appreciated by someone else. Unfortunately, it is also this very universality of flower bouquets that has made flower gifting seem uncreative, cliched and insincere at times. Especially with the younger generations priding themselves on innovation and uniqueness, we are afraid that flower gifting might sadly become a dying art. That would be an absolute shame because flowers and the meanings they carry are still one of the most beautiful forms of communication around. To bring back some of the former glory to this spectacular gift of nature, we have come up with some unique ways to express yourself through flowers.
As Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the extension of the circuit breaker, Singaporeans all around the island breathed a collective sigh. After 2 weeks of working from home, going through home-based learning and reducing general movement, we had all been looking forward to May 4 – no, not Star Wars day – when the circuit breaker would be over. With a long month ahead of us, we should view this time at home not as a sad and isolating period, but a good time to explore new things that we wouldn’t otherwise have had the time to try out. Below is a list of 6 things that you can do during the circuit breaker period that range from productive to fun:
1. Make Dalgona Coffee
As restaurants and eateries all around Singapore closed, coffee addicts like myself scrambled to find a way to satisfy my cravings. After seeing multiple TikTok and Instagram videos featuring the frothy and cafe-style Dalgona coffee, I decided to give this trendy beverage a try. After spending 20 minutes standing over my kitchen counter with a hand whisk, the final product was a beautiful cup of frothy brown coffee foam on top of fresh milk, much like the photo above.
That saying rings true throughout centuries. Instances of a mother’s love overcoming all odds are plentiful – from mothers sacrificing themselves for their child, to simple acts as putting their child first in all aspects of their life. Our mothers are arguably the most important woman in our life. She’s the one who gave birth to us, brought us up, and held our hands through all the seasons that we’ve faced in our life.
10 May 2020 is Mother’s Day. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic where all of us are staying at home in self-isolation, there are tons of ways we can thank and appreciate our mothers. Why not take this opportunity to send a surprise flower delivery or whip up a homecooked meal for her? Read on to find out some ways you can celebrate Mother’s Day and what gifts and mother’s day flowers she would appreciate during this challenging period.
I grew up in Singapore within the warm embrace of flowers. My grandmother’s name was Rose, and just like the flower, she was beauty and grace. She named our house ‘Rose Ville’, and what a fitting name it was! The garden was filled with flowers and plants of various colours and types, and every day, my grandmother would tend to the garden as she would a child – lovingly and patiently. I remember rolling on the grass and breathing in the scent of the blossoming flowers as my grandmother worked. I remember too the smell of roses scattered on top of her coffin as I said my final goodbyes. In my mind, roses will always be a gentle reminder of her dedication and grace.
Flowers are special creatures. They carry with them the memory of something or someone special. Deeply imprinted in my mind is the image of my mother coming home after a long day of work, clutching a huge bouquet of roses for my grandmother for Mother’s Day. ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Ma. I got this from a florist near me’, she said, somewhat sheepishly. Our family was unused to extravagant displays of affection. ‘Why did you buy this, it will only die!’, my grandmother scolded in Cantonese, but I distinctly remembered her flustered smile and the way her fingers slowly caressed the flowers. As a kid observing this strange proceeding from behind the wall, I was enlightened – ah, Mother’s Day is a time of gifting flowers to your mother! I felt slightly awkward that I had not realised that earlier and crept up the stairs to feign sleep in bed.
Flower-giving is one of the oldest practices in the world. Flowers are traditionally considered feminine, and as a young girl, I did not give 2 hoots about them. When I was young, nothing in my room gave clues to it belonging to a 10-year old girl, except if you were to open my wardrobe (my mother chose my clothes). Perhaps being the younger sibling to an older brother influenced my choices. When I was given the chance to pick a color for my room’s walls, I picked oyster grey. I had barbie dolls but I treated them as hair salon customers (they received awful haircuts). I scoffed at the color pink, played soccer with my neighbors, and caught spiders with the boys during recess. The only flowers I bothered about were the little ixoras found in bushes by the roadsides, where my brother and I would rip them off and pull out their yellow tips for their sweet nectar, like giant pollinating bees.
I also grew up in a fairly pragmatic household, where useful gifts (such as money) were favored over “frivolous” items. My childhood was ﬁne, but it did leave an imprint on my life as I grew up and began to experience things as a female person
What is the best way for a man to make a good impression on a woman he likes? Research has shown that 90 over percent of women are able to recall the last time they receive flowers and almost all of them remember the time they receive flowers because receiving flowers makes them feel very special.
Unfortunately, giving flowers still remain quite a mystery to most men. To some, the entire experience could come close to the verge of paranormal. Here at 24Hrs City Florist, we hope to offer an Asian perspective and guide to giving flowers both to the clueless and to the not so clueless. Heaps of practical tips for making your next flower delivery or giving of flowers experience a wonderful one.

Perhaps it started with the popular Goblin K-drama, where a simple buckwheat flower was used to send a love message to the receiver. Or maybe it was Descendents of the Sun that stole everyone’s breath with its intensity and bittersweet romance. Either way, Koreans dramas have set alight a blazing trail that many locals have gladly stepped onto, where fans hold Korean styles and products in high esteem.
Just as we’ve left our enthusiastic Christmas cheer and upbeat New Year greetings behind, the month of love has crept upon us. Valentine’s day never fails to drive men running for the next florist or chocolatier, and restaurants and cafes unleash promotions in the name of love.
