5 Tips To Prevent Pests In Singapore

Singapore´s hot and humid climate makes it an ideal place for pests to thrive. Common pests that are active in Singapore include:

  • Mosquitoes
  • Cockroaches
  • Termites
  • Ants
  • Bed Bugs
  • Rodents

Pest control companies such as Killem Pest do a great job at protecting the nation as well as spreading vital information on how to prevent pests of all sorts.


In this article, we will discuss 5 tips to prevent pests in Singapore. By taking these basic measures, you may well avoid a big hassle in the future. If you have any ideas or tips, feel free to add these in the comment section below.

Tip #1: Close gaps

Inspection is an integral part of identifying the entry points and hiding places of pests. Once you´ve identified these areas, it is highly recommended to seal them.

Tip #2: Clean!

Simple: Do not give pests a reason to spend time in your house by keeping the place clean.

Seal all food items, make sure there is no stagnant water, and keep especially the kitchen area as clean as possible.

Tip #3: Improve ventilation

Many flying pests do not like heavy turbulence. Create a natural turbulence by using a simple ventilator. Besides, allowing natural air to flow inside your home is helpful to avoid creating a damp environment.

Damp and humid environments attract pests like ants, rodents, and cockroaches. Pay particular attention to basements and attics, which generally do not have good air circulation.

Tip #4: Use nets

Placing nets in your bedroom and windows is an effective method to prevent mosquitoes in particular. This relatively simple DIY method can save you a lot of hassle!

Tip #5: Place traps

We cannot forget to include the most well-known method for preventing pests: Placing traps. Various pests require various types of traps. Examples are:

  • Mice and rat traps
  • Fly traps
  • Cockroach traps


By applying basic measures, you can prevent major pest outbreaks in your home, office, restaurant, or other indoor places. However, in most cases, once you´ve spotted pests, it is too late to apply preventive measures. Contact a local pest control service provider to inspect and eliminate pests now.


Term vs. Whole Life Insurance: Which Is the Best Option for Young Singaporeans?

If you’re a young Singapore citizen or resident who’s just kickstarted your career, one of the first things you may find yourself worrying about is insurance. At this point in time, a number of your peers may also be considering insurance, or they may already have insurance policies under their name. This begs the question: if you do get insurance coverage for yourself, what type should it be? How do you choose between term insurance vs life insurance, which are two of the most popular types out there? And once you’ve arrived at the right type of insurance to get, what qualities should you look for from your provider?

You can start by learning about what term and whole life insurance have in common. Both will put you in a legally binding contract with your insurance provider where they’ll pay an agreed-upon amount to your beneficiaries upon your death. The same applies to both types of insurance if you contract a terminal illness. The payouts will be derived from the premiums you pay to your insurer, either upfront or on a monthly basis.

Some insurance programs also have provisions in the case that you contract a critical illness or become permanently disabled. But these provisions are not automatically included, and you will have to ask your carrier if they’re part of your coverage.

Now that you know the basic facts about term insurance and whole life insurance, it’s time for you to compare the two. Here’s a briefer on each of them, as well as some tips on how to choose the right insurance program for yourself.


What Does Term Insurance Entail?

Term insurance is a type of insurance coverage that only applies for a limited period. The term can encapsulate a certain number of years, for example three years or five years. That means that you’ll only be protected by your insurance over the duration of those years. Other term insurance products will only protect you up to a certain age, like when you turn 65 or 75 years old.

The good thing about term insurance is that it’s the more affordable option by far compared to whole life insurance. You will only need to pay premiums until the term expires. That makes it a straightforward and no-nonsense type of insurance coverage that you can buy whenever you feel you need it the most. The trade-off, however, is that term insurance has no cash value. Say that nothing untoward happens to you from the time that you purchase the insurance coverage to the time it expires. Unlike with whole life insurance, you won’t be able to cash out on any additional financial benefits or perks when the term is over. In summary, term insurance is the best kind to get if you want the protections for a certain number of years, and nothing more. 

What Are Whole Life Insurance Programs Like?

As opposed to term insurance, whole life insurance guarantees protection up until the end of one’s life, or at a maximum age of 99. The premiums on this kind of insurance can be paid in advance as well as on a regular basis.

Whole life insurance is admittedly rather expensive, especially for younger income earners who don’t have established careers yet. Enrolment for this kind of program can cost up to 10 or even 20 times the cost of basic term insurance. But it comes with the added perk of a cash payout in case you need one in your lifetime. If you opt out of the whole life insurance program early, you may be able to redeem the policy’s cash value. That’s because your life insurance will be coupled with other financial instruments that can generate additional profit. If you want more than just the protections—namely, the opportunity to build your savings and start investing—whole life insurance is worth the cost.

How Should You Choose Between Term and Whole Life Insurance?

Hopefully, the information above has helped you distinguish between term and whole life insurance. But here are some additional pointers for narrowing your options down further and finding the ideal insurance program for you. 

  • Choose the type of insurance coverage that you can afford. Don’t spend more on insurance than you’re capable of.

  • Choose the coverage that you can pay for in the most flexible terms. Whole life insurance may be expensive, but it’s also easier to settle the premium payments over a shorter period of time. When you’ve paid it off, you can enjoy lifelong coverage for the rest of your years. Term insurance, on the other hand, is more like an annual subscription. It may be easier to pay now, but it will get harder as you grow older and your health and income situation aren’t as assured.

  • Check out different programs offered by different providers. Don’t settle on the first insurance programs advertised to you. For term insurance, you can find policies that are as long or as short as you prefer them to be. For whole life insurance, you can determine how extensive you want the investment components to be.

  • Lastly, choose the coverage that matches where you are in life. Neither term insurance nor whole life insurance are inherently superior to the other. But the right type of insurance to get may depend on factors like your current income, the number of people you’re supporting, and the like. 

Today, you may be in the peak of your health, and life in general may seem stable and promising. But it won’t be like that as the years wear on. That’s when your insurance coverage may come into play. This is a good time to explore your options and to sign up for policies that make sense to you. Best of luck, and may your insurance policy be the most responsive it can be to your needs!


Why Batanes, Philippines is the Best Post-COVID Destination

The Coronavirus pandemic has left many of us stuck in our homes with little freedom to roam around and see new (or old) sights. Even introverts who love to be at home may already be daydreaming a great adventure.

Despite us not seeing an end to the pandemic just yet, it’s not too early to plan your post-pandemic travel. If you want to be the first at the airport after all these but aren’t sure where to go, we’re here to convince you that breathtaking Batanes, Philippines should be first on your post-COVID travel bucket list.

Peace and quiet

We know what you’re thinking. You’ve had plenty of peace and quiet at home in quarantine. However, peace and quiet in Batanes is different. 

Located in the northernmost part of the Philippines, Batanes is just the place you need if you badly want to travel but are still wary of being in crowds. 

Because it is not the most easily accessible place in the Philippine archipelago, there are not too many tourists in this group of islands. You won’t hear the sound of automobiles often either. Instead, you will wake up to the sound of waves, birds chirping, and the faint rustling of leaves.

In Batanes, you’ll feel like the world is your oyster. You’ll get a true breath of fresh air, a far cry from your days of feeling cramped in your room. 

According to Kent Teach, fresh air is not only good for your heart and lungs but also your digestive and immune systems. It can increase your productivity and make you happier, making your trip to Batanes a healing one.

A place to disconnect

Life here is calm and slow, so it is the perfect place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself. Here, it is best to start your day early, heading out of your guesthouse for a little adventure.

Islands in Batanes that tourists frequent are peppered with quaint cafes that can give you your caffeine fix. They also serve local Ivatan and Filipino food made with the freshest produce. Surrounded by the sea, you’re also sure to get your fill of scrumptious seafood dishes.

If you’re staying in Basco, you should definitely drop by Hiro’s cafe for their aromatic blue rice and refreshing blue coconut juice. Butterfly pea flowers, which these are infused with, are great for detoxification, which can help with stress and anxiety relief, say experts on detox from Urologist Singapore.

There’s also little to no wifi on the islands, which is perfect for that much-needed social media detox. If you’re worried you’ll be bored out of your wits, fear not because Batanes has an endless list of scenic spots you can enjoy.

Unique scenic spots

Batanes gives a whole new meaning to the words “scenic locations”. The sights the place holds are unlike those you would encounter at your usual vacation spots. 

The place boasts verdant rolling hills, clear skies, and a sea painted a beautiful shade of blue. If you’re staying at the capital, Basco, you can take a tricycle or motorbike ride to Marlboro Hills and enjoy the view of cattle peacefully grazing.

In Basco, you will also see the famous winding road traversing lush hills that is aptly dubbed the end of Philippine roads. Make sure to go here before dusk as the road is sure to take you to a truly one-of-a-kind view of the sunset.

There are also plenty of beaches you can have all to yourself in Batanes, each with their own unique features. Morong Beach, for instance, has natural stone formations to provide you shade… which could also double as backgrounds for an enviable Instagram post.

Rich history

Isolated as it is from the rest of the Philippines, Batanes has a rich and diverse history and culture you can see in its architecture.

Traditional Ivatan homes in Batanes are low and made of stone, made to withstand the frequent heavy rains and strong winds as well as the occasional quakes in the islands. 

There are also structures from the Spanish colonisation like lighthouses atop scenic hills. There also exist old American radio centres and Japanese hideouts that can give you glimpses of what happened to Batanes during World War II.

Great adventure

If you’re looking for even more adventure, go to Itbayat, the last municipality in the north of the Philippines. From the capital, Basco, you can get into a boat early in the morning to Itbayat. 

The rocky island is made of coral that earthquakes lifted above sea level. Tectonic plate movement and volcanic activity have also gifted the place with an abundance of mountains to trek, caves to explore, and cliffs to climb.

As it’s a remote island, expect to travel rough seas to get there. It’s also common for boat rides to be cancelled going in and out of the municipality due to bad weather, so it’s truly for those looking for an adventure.

When the pandemic ends, remember not to deprive yourself of a break from the world. Shake off your stress so you can face the new world with a brand-new perspective. If you’re not ready for your usual choice of busier vacation spots, places like Batanes are the best for you.

And remember, by going on vacation, you’re also avoiding the physical effects of stress, which can bring about concerns like weight gain and diabetes, according to the experts at Endocrinologist Singapore. That means you can keep both mind and body fit by taking a break sometimes!

Where to Go for Your Next Healing Retreat in Malaysia

Keeping up with the world and trying to perform all our different roles can be exhausting. Once in a while, we might feel the need to drop everything and go someplace relaxing. If you’re thinking of using your leave credits for a healing getaway, we’ve got just the places for you.

If you’re from Malaysia or from any neighbouring country, there are many places you can book in Malaysia for your much-needed retreat. We’ve listed three of the best ones below for you to consider for your next vacation.

Spa Village

Located on a private island that boasts scenic coasts, Spa Village at Pangkor Laut Resort is the breath of fresh air you need from your regular routine. 

The extravagant resort has “spa villages” for each of their treatments. They offer programmes that target specific needs, particularly relaxation and stress reduction, rejuvenation and longevity, detoxification, and romance.

They use techniques that originated in Malaysia, Bali, Thailand, India, China, and Japan. They combine natural and local ingredients, time-tested healing practices, and modern spa equipment to give you the type of healing you need.

If you wish to have a holistic experience of their healing rituals, they also have specialists in  Chinese, Ayurvedic or Malay traditional medicine you can consult with from the first day of your stay to better enjoy your healing retreat.

The place even has special structures to give their clients the best spa experience. These include 8 treatment pavilions, a deluxe Belian Treatment Pavilion, 3 nap gazebos, 3 spa huts, 2 bathhouses, a Chinese Herbal hut, an Ayurvedic hut, a Malay hut, and a spa boutique. 

After your healing activities, you can retire at 1 of 22 spa villas overlooking the sea, which also offers direct access to Spa Village.

The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat

The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is Malaysia’s first luxury natural hot springs wellness retreat, However, the place offers more avenues for relaxation beyond the hot springs it is famed for, such as caves for different designated activities.

Moreover, Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat provides more than just a scenic location for your relaxing getaway. They have treatment programs tailor-made to satisfy your needs.

They also provide healthy food options, nutritional therapies, and spa therapies for their weight management programme. To help you recover from stress, they also have a rejuvenation programme that provides soul-filling food and soothing spa therapies. 

Meanwhile, they offer a variety of group and one-on-one exercise sessions and targeted wellness therapies for their fitness programme.

Further taking your worries away, all packages are inclusive of villa accommodation, spa cuisine menus, plus access to more of their amenities. Their villas also have their own private pools and jacuzzis filled with all-natural geothermal hot-spring water for your utmost relaxation.

The Datai Langkawi

The Datai Langkawi is a luxury resort in Malaysia located in the middle fll of a 10 million-year old rainforest, making it the perfect place to visit if you just want to be surrounded by lush greenery.

The resort’s spa can be found along a stream, which allows them to harness the gifts the rainforest generously provides. They use age-old Malay healing recipes called Ramuan made with plants and herbs from the rainforest. 

Besides their Ramuan and other spa treatments, The Datai Langkawi also offers a variety of multisensory healing activities.

One can get a cup of specially-curated tea at The Nature Centre Lounge. You can also get a full cooking experience, from picking your own herbs to plating, at the resort’s The Dapur cooking class.

You can also opt to join the Mandi Embun, an ancient Malay ritual for wellness and longevity that can make you feel like a reinvigorated person.

The ritual starts with bathing at the stream in a way that follows traditional Malay forest bathing principles. Then, you’ll get a traditional massage that increases blood flow, a healthy lunch, and Malay exercises to conclude the ritual.

Mandi Ebun can reduce your stress too, so it’s definitely a good thing to try if you’re stressed out. Some even find that it reduces certain physical pains, say previous customers.

This may be because stress can cause some physical issues. Stress may be causing your sleep problems, ear pain, throat constriction, and other concerns, according to the pros at ENT Doctor Singapore, so stress- mitigating therapies can help then.

Anyway, after your scheduled relaxation activities, you can rest at any of the resort’s 121 rooms, suites and villas, which give you an enthralling view of the verdant rainforest or the majestic Andaman Sea.


You can certainly do quick activities to reduce your stress at home, but these are often bandaid solutions that have temporary results. Vacations can increase creativity and productivity, strengthen relationships, improve mental health, and prevent stress-induced heart disease, says Select Health

While it is admirable to keep going despite tremendous amounts of stress, taking time off for a bit of relaxation is important. So, on your next long weekend, enjoy your well-deserved time off with a truly healing retreat.


Places You Can Enjoy for Free in Singapore

Singapore is a delightful place to visit in Southeast Asia. Small as it is, it has so many things to offer wandering souls. Here, you can explore multiple cultures in the middle of a bustling, ultramodern city. 

However, many travellers tend to be too intimidated to roam the country, thinking it would cost them a lot. The truth is, there are so many cheap yet beautiful places to visit in Singapore. One just has to look beyond the usual tourist spots.

If you are looking for more places to add to your Singapore itinerary without blowing up your expenses, there’s no need to look further. Below is a list of places in Singapore you can enjoy for free.

1. ION Orchard

We’re not kidding. ION Orchard, one of Singapore’s biggest and fanciest shopping malls, has a few places you can enjoy for free.

ION Art, ION Orchard’s art gallery, showcases modern and contemporary art from Asian artists and designers. Besides the multimedia and digital art you’d expect to see in modern art museums, the place also features thought-provoking art installations and sculptures.

At ION Orchard’s 55th and 56th floors, there is also ION Sky. It is a free-for-all observation deck that gives you an amazing view of the city’s skyline.

2. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

Time-travel to Tang dynasty China at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. This striking piece of architecture is considered sacred as it is said to house a tooth from Buddhism’s founder, Siddharta Gautama. 

The 156-year old temple is still an active place of worship for Buddhists in Singapore, so expect to see monks and devotees chanting their prayers in the hall. Certainly a warm place to visit, they even serve guests a simple vegetarian meal for free.

And if you’re not too crazy about vegetarian food, just remember: according to Thrillist, eating more fruits and vegetables can make you feel significantly happier. So, a visit at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple can make you feel better not just spiritually, but also physically.

3. Sri Mariamman Temple

Located in Chinatown, Sri Mariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore. Having existed for almost 200 years, the place represents Hinduism’s rich history in the country and remains a place of prayer for devotees.

Colourful and 6 storeys high, this elegant architecture can be spotted even from afar. Up close, you’ll also appreciate the intricate statues and shrines it holds for various Hindu deities and mythical creatures.

Just remember to show up in appropriate attire when visiting temples, although there are often sarongs you can borrow at temple entrances, just in case you forget.

4. Haw Par Villa

Formerly known as Tiger Balm Garden, Haw Par Villa is the last of its kind in the world. This 8.5-hectare cultural park built in 1937 is packed with art that tells of Asian culture, history, philosophy, and religion.

To be specific, Singapore’s biggest outdoor gallery has eclectic statues and dioramas that pay tribute to Chinese mythology and legends as well as the Chinese belief system Confucianism.

One of the main attractions in the place is the 10 Courts of Hell, which tells a lesson about the punishments mortals are said to receive depending on their earthly sins as per Indian Buddhism.

5. Jurong Lake Gardens

Occupying 90 hectares, Jurong Lake Gardens is Singapore’s garden of gardens. The huge space holds the Garden Promenade, Lakeside Garden, Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden.

Each garden can transport you into a whole new space. For instance, the Chinese Garden has the trademark imperial Chinese architectural style, complete with stone lions, stone bridges, and pagodas. Next to it, the Japanese Garden looks straight from a Japanese landscape painting.

We actually recommend this spot when you need to unwind. When staying in a busy city, it’s important to find places where you can breathe fresh air freely from time to time. 

Spending time in parks like this one can even improve respiratory health and reduce the risk of lung diseases, say the experts at Livingstone Health. So, visiting sites like these can be good for your body too! 

6. Mount Faber Park

Mount Faber Park is the best place for a leg day in Singapore. It offers an avenue for exercise in a refreshing space you’ll surely find pleasing to the eyes.

Your efforts will not only reward you with healthier joints and muscles. Here, you also get to enjoy the area’s flora and fauna. 

There are also murals that tell a story of Singapore’s rich history. Push for the peak and you’ll even get a spectacular view of the city’s skyline. 

Just make sure you wear the right footwear. A lot of sightseers get in trouble in this spot because they forget about that, according to the experts at Rheumatologist Singapore – who often find themselves ministering to the sore tourists afterwards. Don’t be one of those! 

Anyway, you don’t really need too much money to see more of the world, as you can see. This is as long as you set aside materialism and look at travelling as a way to gain experience and insight. These places in Singapore prove that the country can be enjoyed even with a small budget. 

With a bit of research, resourcefulness, and willingness to go off the beaten path, you can explore more places and begin to see things in a different light.

6 Tips to Enjoy Your Holiday Without Breaking the Bank

In 2018, close to 6.3 million Australians took short holidays overseas. Planning holidays abroad is becoming more common among Aussies, and for good reason. Our planet is full of amazing destinations and visiting each one of them is a great way to learn about new cultures and explore natural wonders you’ve never seen before.


Whether you’re planning on taking a short holiday or exploring the world for an extended period of time, learning how to travel on a budget can bring a number of great benefits. That said, you need to find the best way to keep costs low and avoid spending excessive amounts of money. 

In this article, we’ll go over 6 tips to help you enjoy your holiday without breaking the bank.

The Benefits of Taking Annual Holidays

Holidays provide a necessary break from our day to day routine while allowing you to create awesome memories with your family. By taking at least one holiday every year, you’ll reduce stress levels and create a stronger bond between your family members. And, if you have children, travelling can help boost their confidence and creativity at the same time.

While taking regular holidays is important, you also need to prepare in every sense of the word. For travel to any region, you should consider consulting with a travel doctor and inquire about vaccinations and health advice that can ensure a safe trip for everyone.


6 Tips to Enjoy Your Holiday Without Breaking the Bank

Taking a family holiday is very exciting, but you also need to watch your budget in order to have a good overall experience. Here are some tips to help you enjoy your travels while keeping costs low.

Research the Location You Want to Visit

Accommodation and airline tickets tend to take up most of your travel budget. In order to keep these low, always research the destination you want to visit before you book anything. This will help you find a place that has attractions you want to see while still meeting your budget requirements.

Book Your Flights in Advance

Once you’ve found the right destination, make sure you book your tickets in advance. Last-minute tickets tend to cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. To avoid this, purchase your tickets at least three months in advance.

Set a Budget and Stick to It

After booking your flight, figure out approximately how much you’re going to spend each day and set a budget. Find out what attractions you want to visit and how much they cost. Don’t forget to include meals, accommodation, souvenirs, and transport expenses as well. Stick to your budget and avoid making additional purchases unless it’s completely necessary.

Choose Walking Over Taxis

Paying for taxis may seem practical, but these fees can quickly add up. If you’re visiting a small town or the tourist part of a city, walk as much as you can and avoid paying for taxis whenever possible.

Shop at the Local Stores

In most cases, markets and small local stores are more affordable than malls and supermarkets. Try to do most of your shopping at local stores, especially if you plan on taking back a few souvenirs. Besides spending less, you’ll also help the local economy and experience the culture first-hand.

Start a Saving Account for Your Holiday

Despite the fact that some Aussies take out a loan or use their credit cards, most prefer to save money and avoid getting into debt. In these cases, finding the best online savings account can make the world of difference. Just make sure you choose a provider that doesn’t have maintenance fees and offers good interest rates.

California Travelogue – (Part 2): San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, Maritime Museum, Ghirardelli Square, Lombard Street and Chinatown

Soak into the sights, sounds and smells of San Francisco. We did a tour of the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. The Park includes a magnificent fleet of historic ships, a Visitor Center, Maritime Museum, Maritime Research Center, and Aquatic Park Historic District.

It was an easy tour as the place wasn’t huge.

A short walk further down was the Maritime Museum which was located in the Aquatic Park Bathhouse Building.

Ghirardelli Square is a convenient stop for chocolate and ice cream while already visiting at Fisherman’s Wharf.

No trip to San Francisco is complete without tasting sweet chocolate from those chocolate dream-makers at Ghirardelli. Ghirardelli’s sundaes are real special.

We did not drive during our stay in San Francisco. Instead, we walked, walked and walked.

As you can see, the roads here were steep and it was a test of endurance and good form of exercise.

This picture is a good example to get a sense of how steep the streets were.

We did have the chance to see the splendor of the West Coast, here was what San Francisco looked and felt like.

Strolling down one of America’s crookedest streets in the form of Lombard Street is a blessing! The steep, hilly street was created with sharp curves to switchback down the one-way hill past beautiful Victorian mansions.

Lombard Street is definitely one of the most photographed spot in San Francisco. Tourists just couldn’t resist its charm and uniqueness.

 This street has eight tight hairpin turns through the neighborhood where guests can either drive, or walk, down for an interesting adventure.

After exploring Lombard Street, we walked to the Chinatown.

San Francisco’s Chinatown is the oldest one in North America (surprisingly well maintained) and covers 24 city blocks.

Trying out the delicious and yummy dim sum!

We finally found the the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory after getting lost! Located in Ross Alley, formerly called the “Street of the Gamblers”; the little factory here makes fortune cookies.

We had no idea why it was so popular among tourists. In fact, we don’t think there is anything special about fortune cookies. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant sight watching the lady sitting at the assembly line, folding and filling the cookies by hand.

Big and Small M at the Dragon Gate, the official entrance into Chinatown on Bush Street, where Grant Avenue takes you into the heart of Chinatown.
