The popularity of fabric armchair today

In our modern world, where the importance of furniture in a home has been bloated up to an unimaginable scale, people have one too many choices when it comes to furniture. It’s hard enough already trying to choose from one type of sofa, but what about sectionals? And then couches? And then you have a whole host of factors that you have to take into consideration when choosing furniture, like fabric type, for example.

Have you ever heard of fabric armchairs in Singapore? If you haven’t, then it’s about time you do! But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s briefly discuss what exactly an armchair is.

Armchairs are essentially any chair with armrests meant for sitting at ease, unlike the more rigid seating of, say, a stool or bench. They have existed in some form or another since ancient times and were evidently used by Egyptian pharaohs to denote their royalty. Such chairs soon became an integral part of royal ceremony and etiquette, and as such, furniture makers of that time worked hard to master the art of making ornate armchairs. It was only much later when people began using them in homes, albeit sparingly at first.

It wasn’t until the 17th century that armchairs became an everyday sight in homes across Europe – thanks to King Louis XIV of France, who ordered a huge number of armchairs to be made and placed in his newly built palace. The king was so pleased by his new furniture that he soon made it a symbol of wealth and power and ordered many more armchairs to be made for him. Armchairs became a status symbol of sorts – something the rich could flaunt and the poor could not afford.

Over time, fabric armchairs in Singapore became more and more popular, and

Resale of Fully Paid HDB Flats

Background

The HDB (Housing Development Board) in Singapore has built over 1 million apartment units, and most of Singapore’s population, amounting to over 80%, live in these units. Only legitimate Singaporeans or non-citizens with complete documents are allowed to live in HDB flats. Tourists are not allowed to rent entire apartments or even just a bedroom.

HDB flats are considered public housing, and they can be acquired in several ways. However, selling fully paid HDB flat is much more complex because of the process that a Singaporean has to go through.

Selling Without An Agent

Before even thinking of selling, Singaporeans would have to live in their flat for at least five years for it to be eligible for resale. Without an agent, they would first have to register their intent to sell by going on to the HDB Resale Portal. Then, they need to fill up and submit the resale application. Next, they would need to submit resale documents via the portal and pay the resale fee. Then, wait for the approval, and once approved, they have to appear at the resale completion appointment. The entire process will take up to two months.

Selling With An Agent

With an agent, the process would only take two weeks, and your flat can be sold within that period as well. Agents also offer a few more services along with processing your resale. They will meet with you and discuss a great marketing plan before putting it on the market. They’ll even take attractive photos of your flat, add a few appliances and furniture to help the buyer visualize the layout of the apartment. Since everyone is on their phones nowadays, marketing is done heavily online, with a vlog-style tour of the apartment and surrounding amenities to attract potential buyers.

Best cycling routes Singapore

Singapore is a great destination for cycling because of its flat roads and good weather. Thanks to the government’s policy to promote walking and cycling, most parks have dedicated walking/cycling trails well-maintained by park authorities.

In this article, we list down best cycling routes in Singapore.

1) East Coast Park

The best cycling routes Singapore is East Coast Park. On weekends, it is extremely packed with cyclists and families enjoying time together on their bicycles along the waterfront area. There are two ways to go around East Coast Park: along the main road or through a shortcut using a bicycle bridge near Bedok Jetty. Both routes are around 10kms long. While the shortcut might be best for families with young kids, expert cyclists may prefer the longer route as it is slightly more challenging due to the higher rate of hills and luggage carrying bicycles along the main road area.

East Coast Park hosts numerous cycling events, so do check out their website here for upcoming activities.

2) Yishun Dam

Yishun Dam is one of the best places for your daily morning exercise. There are two ways you can cycle around this dam: clockwise or anti-clockwise directions. You can choose which way you want to go but do note that there will be certain limitations if you plan on taking the bicycle lane designated by park authorities. We decided to take a shortcut up a nearby hill, which led us to a nice view of the dam.

Yishun Dam is best for morning exercise and not ideal for cycling at night. There are limited lights in the surrounding areas so you might want to avoid going there during evening hours.

3) Macritchie Reservoir

Macritchie Reservoir Park offers one of the best cycling routes in Singapore, with its long stretch

Why Proofreading and Sentence Structure Checking Matters

You may have heard at least once that content is king. The quality of information transmitted in any kind of written format is important for your readers. Regardless of what you are writing about, it is important that the content is factually correct and provides some sort of value. Equally important is you have to use a sentence structure checker and review the content before publishing it. If you are frequently overlooking this aspect of publishing, you should be concerned because it can have some negative effects.

  1. Credibility

No matter how factually correct and valuable your content is, if you do not edit it and ensure that it is written professionally, you lose credibility. Simple online tools such as a sentence structure checker can make your work easier but you should not rely on them completely. It takes human intervention to ensure that your message is loud and clear. If it is written in broken English or has plenty of errors in it, your content loses credibility in the eyes of the reader.

                2. Turns off the reader

A poorly edited piece of content, no matter in what form it is written, causes the reader to stop reading. Not only credibility is affected negatively but it also causes the reader to lose interest. They are less likely to finish reading a piece of content which again causes you to lose important members of your audience or to have your content misjudged or mislabeled because readers did not get to finish reading.

  1. Turns content into a waste of time

Because a piece of content is not properly edited using simple tools such as a sentence structure checker makes the whole content worthless. It may sound harsh but if your readers lose interest and you lose credibility, it makes the content a

Why You Need an Interpreter

The world is a very big place. With language barriers, it can feel like an even bigger one. Imagine how much more you might explore if you could communicate with people in different parts of the world! That’s where interpreters come in. Interpreters are professionals who translate languages for individuals and groups of people to connect with others and live more fulfilling lives.


They help bridge the gap between cultures by providing an understanding through interpretation services customized to fit your personal or professional needs. There’s no better way to understand someone than by listening to them speak their own words in their voice, which is why interpreters provide this invaluable service every day.

What is an interpreter, and what do they do

An interpreter is a person who conveys or translates spoken or written messages from one language into another language. They are also known as translators, liaison officers, conference interpreters, oral translators, and/or sworn translators. Ultimately, an interpreter facilitates conversation between two people-and sometimes more-by acting as a bridge in both directions. Interpreters are trained to understand the source language being spoken and speak the target language fluently to provide accurate interpretation services.

What kinds of interpreting services does an interpreter offer?

Interpreters work in various settings, including schools, hospitals, government agencies, universities, businesses, courts, legal proceedings, and more. Singapore interpreting services provide interpretation services for many different languages, including but not limited to American Sign Language (ASL), Cantonese, Dutch, Farsi, German, Hindi, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Punjabi, and Spanish. There are two types of interpreting:

  • Simultaneous Interpreting-In which the interpreter sits in on the conversation and immediately interprets what is being said. They rely on a headset to listen and relay information to an audience
  • Consecutive Interpreting-In which the interpreter waits until the speaker has finished before relaying
