Sigmund Home Ergo Foam Tencel Pillow Review


I was recently looking for pillows as my kids outgrew theirs and started "borrowing" mine, which are newer and bigger. So then the universe sent me these: Ergo Foam Tencel Pillows from Sigmund Home, a purveyor of quality, orthopaedic approved mattresses and pillows with same-day delivery.

At first, the pillow looked quite ordinary with gentle slopes less dramatic than some of the memory foam pillows on the market. However, once I laid my head down on them...oh my gosh. It's like the pillow magically aligns my neck and head to the best possible position. Let me go and do that right now; I love that sensation.

[several minutes later...]

OK, I'm back. The website described these pillows as "fluffy and soft as a cloud but as supportive as a loved one" - aww! But it's close. Your head feels like it's suspended on air and yet firmly supported. 

I tested the pillow for two weeks. What I found:
1) I fall asleep faster.
2) I sleep right through.

Prior to these pillows, I would sometimes take forever to fall asleep, and would often find myself awake at odd hours (sometimes not being able to sleep again), or I'd rouse a few times a night. Disrupted sleep is terrible.  

Now I don't know if the pillows really caused these better sleep patterns, or whether I've just been more exhausted lately. But they sure are more sleep-friendly than even my most comfy pillows. Look at how the medium-firm material bounces right back.




The gentle contours of the pillow are angled to support and cushion your spine and neck - keeping it as straight and aligned as possible for restorative sleep. Visco-elastic cells allow the pillow to mould to your neck and shoulders, enabling a personalised ergonomic fit. Advanced airflow technology keeps you cool throughout the night.

The Tencel fabric is made from the pulp of Eucalyptus trees, and is particularly breathable for added comfort, lulling you to sleep! The pillows are also 100% hypoallergenic.

There's one more thing. 


 
Horizontal neck lines, people! Caused by the neck tilting down too much, like when you're looking down on your phone, or when your pillow is too high. The Ergo Foam pillow might help to provide the best alignment to prevent neck lines and double chins! Then go do Koko's face yoga exercises. She's hilarious. 

The only thing I noticed you have to be careful is when you're sleeping on your side. Make sure you aren't resting your cheek on the swell of the pillow, as that part should be cradling your neck. Make sure everything is well aligned before you fall asleep. The pillow I imagine works best for back sleepers; you could fall asleep like that and wake up in the same position. OK, I'm feeling sleepy already. Good night.

Siri House at Dempsey: Modern Asian Cuisine with Cocktails

SIRI HOUSE at Dempsey has carved out a niche with its cuisine that can best be described as Modern Asian. Its creative East-Meets-West dishes can be intriguing yet comforting, such as the Unagi Risotto above. Head Chef Leo Pang, who was formerly from Le Benardin (by Eric Ripert in New York City) has put together a menu that calls up comfort food memories. Sharing plates let you try a little bit of everything while bonding with the people you eat with.

Hong Kong Food in Singapore: "100 Reasons to Miss Hong Kong" HKTB Promo


Do you miss Hong Kong and its fabulous eats? I remember one of particularly mouthwatering video my friend Wilsurn shared in a groupchat of him and his companion scarfing down all the iconic foods on a weekend makan trip to Hong Kong, just before the Covid travel restrictions hit. Man...the things we take for granted and think we'll be able to do just anytime? Not so easy now. They've just announced a travel air bubble between SG and HK but no dates yet for when this will happen. But thankfully, sometimes when we can't go to the mountain, the mountain can come to us. 

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is giving us “100 Reasons to Miss Hong Kong” by offering a variety of authentic Hong Kong food experiences to enjoy.

From 12 October 2020 to 15 November 2020, HKTB has lined up eight world-famous Hong Kong food brands in Singapore to provide exclusive promotions and offers to local travellers who miss Hong Kong’s food. Participating brands include Jenny Bakery, Kam’s Roast, Mui Kee Congee, Social Place, as well as the newly opened Hang Heung and Joy Luck Teahouse (which houses Hoover Cake Shop, Kam Kee CafĂ© & Tak Hing Fishball Company).

Morton's Singapore: Private Dining Rooms for Celebrations with Steak and Seafood

I think we are all so glad that dining in is back in restaurants. Not only can we enjoy expertly prepared cuisine the way it's meant to be - fresh and hot - but we can also celebrate special occasions at a really nice venue.

Morton’s The Steakhouse has been a particular favourite for celebrating momentous occasions since it opened here in 1998. The restaurant has elegant private dining rooms that are perfect for small meetings, parties, birthday celebrations or even just a change from home.


Morton's Private Dining Rooms 2&3 - Cluster Meeting Set Up

It's probably going to be a while before we can see meetings for groups bigger than five. But I think that day is not too far away, given that rules are relaxing for places of worship (but oh, Morton is the temple of steak, isn't it?) and community cases are down to almost none. I can't wait for Phase 3.
Morton's Private Dining Rooms A&B - Long Dinner Table

With a minimum spending of S$800++, Morton’s The Steakhouse provides complimentary room decoration, an excellent bottle of champagne, dessert for the celebrant, a personalised menu with birthday greeting and special occasion photos, printed and ready for guests to bring home as souvenirs. Most importantly, guests can also look forward to a hearty feast of steaks, seafood, wine and desserts with family and friends.



USDA Bone-in Ribeye

The celebration can start off with Morton’s Prime Ocean Platters (baked), a gorgeous spread of Sea Scallops Wrapped in Bacon, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Baked Oyster and Jumbo Shrimp Alexander (S$194++ for 3-4 pax) or indulge in the restaurant’s creamy rendition of the Lobster Bisque (S$39++).

Of course, we love Morton's for its hallmark steaks. The 22oz. Bone-in Ribeye (S$145++, photo above) with a rich marbling of fat, beautiful succulence and flavour is perfect for sharing. For a group of five, you might consider adding also the 20oz. Signature Cut New York Strip (S$156++), Honey Balsamic Glazed Ora King Salmon (S$78++) and the lusciously sweet Alaskan King Crab Legs (S$158++ full portion) for a memorable gourmet experience.

If you're ending the meal on a sweet note, indulge in Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake (S$38++), a classic New York Style Cheesecake (S$29++) or the Fresh Seasonal Berries (S$27++) paired with Sabayon sauce, the perfect simple summery dessert.

A complimentary welcome drink will be presented to early diners who dine-in before 6pm.
