Lunar new year 2022



2022 is the year of "Water tiger", which has the image that starts sprouting and becomes a cornerstone for a new phase of growth after getting thorough a tough winter. 

How does this sound to you?

I’ll definitely find a bright, hopeful signal in it after a long tough situation for the last 2 years due to the pandemic. 

It would be great if we could help as many of you as possible celebrate and take off to a good start with our one of a kind items. Each of our item is so unique that you cannot find elsewhere here in Singapore.
