Ariston, the leading and international brand in the Arison Group, through their commitment to develop sustainable solutions to the consumer's daily life, came out with the concept of "Home of sustainable comfort". Being the Italian global expert of heating and hot water sectors, Ariston brings comfort to the houses of millions of families in the world every day, satisfying the needs of all types of consumers.

I attended the Ariston product launch held at Alice @ Mediapolis and was among the first few to witness their latest WI-FI storage water heaters as well as slim instant water heaters series. 

With over 90 years of history, Ariston is at the cutting edge of innovation but still they continue to push forward and improve with new product launches.

Star stuck moments ! 

Spotted some familiar faces, made some new friends and this is definitely my fan girl moment when I managed to take a photo with Desmond Koh. He's one of the most friendly and approachable celebrity ever. 

 Full WI-FI Electric Storage Water Heaters with Voice Control functions and compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant

Ariston remains the first and only brand in Singapore to introduce a full new range of WI-FI electric storage water heaters with voice control functions. User can now easily turn or/off the water heater, adjust water temperature and receive information about the current temperature via voice commands. This is definitely a must have for those who are thinking of turning their homes into a smart home.

 With Ariston NET app, user can learn how to improve energy consumption as it is a smart app to manage users' thermal comfort solutions for a more sustainable comfort of living. This in turn allow user to enjoy energy saving of 25%

ANDRIS2 TOP 30 WIFI and SLIM2 LUX-D WI-FI are equipped with patented full-titanium heating element that comes with lifetime warranty. With energy saving smart ECO EVO function and AG+ technology that inhibits bacteria proliferation for better hygiene. 

Fun Fact: Ariston has always been committed to developing products that last through time and they are the first electric water heater manufacturer in the market to use titanium against water corrosion since twenty five years ago! 

New Instant Water Heater Series are now Slimmer and Sleeker to fit Singaporean's homes

Ariston introduces an upgraded range of its AURES electric instant water heaters that are now slimmer and sleeker to fit perfectly into Singaporean homes be it in terms of looks and size. This range is equipped with Constant Temperature (CT) technology and is the first to be officially certified by PSB Singapore to be energy saving of up to 25%. The AURES range has also earned the prestigious Good Design Award thanks to its luxury design and outstanding features as well as its simplicity of installation and operation. 

With the AURES TOP, users are able to save up their preferred temperature for up to 3 different profiles. With just a simple touch, user will get to enjoy the preferred temperature that they have saved. This function is especially useful for families with elderly and kids. 

For those who enjoyed a comforting rain shower experience like me, the AURES Premium+ will fit the bill with its silent pump and rainshower that provides a strong water jet for an optimal shower experience. It is also the quietest with a noise levels of as low as 42.7 dB(A). 

These water heaters are now equipped with Earth-leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) safety mechanism, providing an additional safety point and reduce the risks of electrical shocks. How it works is that, if a dangerous electric leakage is detected, the built-in double pole ELCB in Ariston AURES range will interrupt the electrical circuit. Not only that, there is also the anti-scald technology that reduces the risk of scalding when users turn on the shower. The Ariston AURES range will be available at all authorised dealers from May 2023 retailing from $139. 

Got to enjoy some customized cocktail and food before and after the product launch presentation. Congratulations Ariston for another breakthrough in their products.

 Singapore's largest King Koil & Ashley Furniture flagship Megastore celebrates it's first anniversary with the launch of their latest 2023 collections as well as a special anniversary promotion.

With a floor space of over 30,000 square feet, we decided to explore the highest level first so we went to the King Koil Sleep Gallery at level 6. The friendly salesperson there showed us a wide range of mattresses and bedding accessories.

Level 3 is the Modern and Cotemporary set up. The strong leather smell greeted us the moment we stepped in. We found this chair really cute for those with cats at home as the cat can rest inside while the owner can sit on top.

[Food Tasting] Local Favourites and Western Delicacies at Seletar Terrace, Seletar Country Club

Tucked in the tranquility of the lush greenery and far away from the urban setting is Seletar Country Club, the family club of choice for Singaporeans looking for recreational activities all under one roof. There's a few dining options available, such as restaurants like Famous Palace for Chinese food and Jƍ Japanese Restaurant for Japanese food. For a more casual dining option, there's the open-air Seletar Terrace that serves a mix of delicious local and western dishes. 

Together with Jessie, we made our way there after work for a food tasting session held at the Seletar Terrace which is open to both members and public. Our friend, Dawn brought us on a quick tour to the nicest ladies cum changing room with massage chairs. It was such a big contrast to the washroom I went to earlier. 

Dining at Seletar Terrace offers diners a gorgeous view of the award-winning golf course as well as the beautiful sunset. It's a family friendly place with kids meals, an outdoor playground and baby chairs. 
Fish & Chips (breaded) and Black Pepper Chicken Chop

 Salami Pizza and Bacon & Ham Carbonara.

Pork Satay

Bak Ku Teh (Herbal Style)

Penang Chao Kway Tiao and Fried Carrot Cake

Seafood White Bee Hoon

Curry Chicken Rice (Add French Loaf)

All the food generally tasted good and of satisfaction, I'm pretty amazed with the wide variety of dishes that they served which also comes at an affordable price. My personal favourites are the Pork Satay and Bak Ku Teh (which I had about two refills). The Penang Chao Kway Tiao and Fried Carrot Cake are pretty good too and has the wok hey taste. 

After our dinner, we went on a quick tour to check out the other facilities that's available.

Food Tasting at Jack's Place (Bras Basah Complex) outlet

Together with some of the media and influencers friends, we were invited to do a food tasting at Jack's Place, Bras Basah Complex outlet. As it was during lunch time, I went down to the venue from my office which is just two bus stops away. 

We went over to the long table to start off the session with the traditional tossing of the Lo Hei for prosperity and abundance. The Harvest Toss Seafood Salad was really refreshing and I could taste fruits like Mango, Pomelo and Pineapple. Roasted Sesame Dressing was used instead of the usual Plum Sauce. The flavour blends well overall. 

After the tossing of Lo Hei, we went back to our individual table for the Abundance Set Lunch starting off with the Fish Maw & White Fungus Chicken Broth. It feels kind of interesting to be having this super Chinese style soup instead of the usual mushroom soup at Jack's Place. The soup is really tasty and good.

For my main course, I had the Chicken with Pineapple Marmalade and Yam Basket with Scallop. The Chicken Meat was tender and well seasoned with the sauce. The concept of 'East meets West' is well displayed in this dish with the yam and scallop at the sides. 

 We ended the meal with a slice of osmanthus sponge cake which was nicely decorated with a firecracker imaged on an edible chocolate. Super festive! 

Jack's Place Jewel Outlet Opens Throughout the Lunar New Year

Not to be missed during the festive seasons are the Lunar New Year Cookies and Cakes. Traditional ingredients are used for their Hainanese Kaya Roll, Nanyang Kopi Roll, Rainbow Kueh Lapis and the Lychee Pineapple Tarts.  

We got to try some of the Lunar New Year Cookies and Cakes too. I quite like the Lychee Pineapple Tarts which is also their popular items. It's more to the sweet side as the Lychee taste is quite strong. For the cookies, they are the melt-in-your mouth kind. We also tried the Rainbow Kueh Lapis which taste like the normal Kueh Lapis but I find it very unique and makes a great gift. Would have got a box but it was not available at the outlet on the day we went.
