Top 5 Singapore Life Hacks

It’s time to be the smartest local alive. Here are our top 5 life hacks to get the best out of living in Singapore.


Hack 1: Health Screening For Only $15

All general practitioners in Singapore offer health screenings in different packages depending on how in-depth you want to go.

Most are quite competitive with their offerings, but one stands out amongst the rest.

Orange Health is a rewards program created by NTUC that offers a BMI, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and cholesterol test for just $15.


Hack 2: Free Public Gyms

In almost every neighbourhood in Singapore, you’ll find a space designated to outdoor workout equipment.

Considering how expensive gym memberships can be in Singapore, it’s worth considering the savings of outdoor exercise. 


Hack 3: Walk To Sentosa

While things can get expensive, starting with the $4 monorail or taxi ride, you can avoid all charges to Sentosa by simply walking over the bridge, beginning at Vivo City mall.

The monorail is then FREE on the way back! 

Then once you’re at Sentosa, the beaches are also FREE!

This walk to Sentosa and all the fun activities that you will be doing on the beach is sure to keep you fit and healthy.


Hack 4: Invest In A WIFI booster

WIFI can travel through most walls quite easily, but, not in Singapore. 

Singapore home’s walls typically concrete, which is excellent for keeping your home cool in a tropical climate, not so good if you want good wifi throughout your house.

A WIFI booster only needs to be plugged into a power outlet and connected to your main router, and your internet will be back to full strength in no time.


Hack 5: Invest In A Good Water Purifier

While water from the tap in Singapore is generally safe to drink, a good water purifier can do so much more than that. Most advanced water purifier can dispense up to 4 different temperatures instantly! This means that you can instantly get a cold drink or make a hot cup of coffee anytime you want.

By cutting the cost from having all the middlemen and importing directly from the factory in Korea, Sterra’s Water Purifier is the best priced water purifier in Singapore.

It comes with many advance features that keep your water clean and safe while also eliminating the hassle of maintenance that is a hassle for other water purifiers.

Bottled vs Tap vs Purified Water

“You need to drink more water.” is a statement we hear quite often. The amount of water we drink depends on the individual.

Drinking water doesn’t need to be dull and boring. It shouldn’t be something we depend on merely for survival. It very well may be something we appreciate doing. The market is loaded with various types of drinking water with different compositions, textures, and foundations. As we investigate the water universe and its different varieties, you may never see water the same way again! 

With some being less expensive than others or some obtaining a larger number of nutrients and supplements, not all types of water are made equal.


Here are the different types of water and what you should know about them:



Bottled Water

The different varieties of bottled water include spring, mineral, or sparkling water. It can likewise come directly from the tap too. Do you know that as much as about 25% of filtered water in the United States comes from the tap? This may stun you, but there are currently no standards that requires bottled water to come from a spring. 

The main role of bottled water is primarily for drinking. The fact that it is very convenient makes people want it more often and a majority view it as safer and cleaner than faucet water. Others may choose bottled water since they see it as being of higher quality or they incline toward the flavor of a specific brand.



Tap Water

Tap water is one of the primary choices when we consider drinking water. This is the water that comes from your pipes and then to the faucet. This water has went through strict water sanitization measures before it streams to our homes.

While tap water may have gone through strict water sanitization, there is nothing to prevent the pipes or faucets that receive the water after sanitization from getting dirty or contaminated. Still, the water from our taps are considered generally safe in Singapore.



Purified Water

Any water that has been precisely handled or separated to sanitize and be filtered is called ‘purified water’, making it a more general term. In our case, let’s look at purified water as water that has been sanitized and filtered after leaving the tap.

Some of the processes include assimilation, deionization, and osmosis. These extra steps and cycles eliminate practically all debasements and impurities from the water making it perfect and safe for human consumption.

In Singapore, all 3 types of water are considered safe to drink due to many strict guidelines that are in place. However, it is clear that the safest of all is purified water. As compared to tap water, purified water went through extra steps to make sure that the water is clean and safe. 

While many might argue that tap water in Singapore is safe to drink, there might still be cases where the pipes or the faucet gets dirty or contaminated. Having a purifier eliminates the risk of this happening greatly and this is especially if one has elderly or children at home.

Top 4 reasons why you should stop drinking tap water

Even though Singapore’s water is considered safe for drinking, most people prefer to boil water before drinking it, rightfully so. The water from tap travelled a long way through metal water pipes and tanks before reaching our homes. We dive deeper into understanding why we should stop drinking tap water even though it’s considered safe.


Here are top 4 reasons why you should stop drinking tap water and start using Sterra.


  1. Convenience

To get hot water from the tap, we have to boil water, which takes a lot of time. To have room temperature drinking water, it means we have to boil with a kettle or boiler, and then let it cool before we have drinking water. If we would like chilled water, we also have to put it in the fridge. The water is usually limited to the size of the kettle, which is not enough for the family. Often people drink less water, which is not good. Or we spend a lot of time per day to boil and cool water to our desired temperature. In the long run, we use up too much of our life managing drinkable water.  A Sterra Water Purifier solves this big issue by providing pure drinkable water instantly at 4 temperatures – Cold (4°C), Room (25°C), Warm (40°C), Hot (87°C). All this is achieved instantly, which will save you hundreds of hours over your lifetime.


  1. Clean water

The tap water that arrives at our home travelled a long way through metal pipes and tanks that have been around for years! Even though tap water is considered safe for drinking, it contains many impurities, particles, bacteria, lead and chlorine. This is why the water has a metal or rusty taste. Or it’s like drinking water from the pool. If you notice, you will also realize that the taps will look brown after some time due to the tap water. While tap water is considered safe for drinking, we can have even cleaner water by having a personal water purifying lab at home. The Sterra Water Purifier makes sure water is purified right before it enters your cup. Sterra use high technology 4-stage filtering to remove impurities, particles, bacteria, lead and chlorine. Boiling the water doesn’t remove lead and chlorine from the water, which is why water still has the rusty taste even after boiling. Ideally, we don’t want lead and chlorine to enter our bodies through drinking water, which is why Sterra is crucial.  


  1. Water is the most important thing we take in

Everyone wants a healthy lifestyle, because without health, nothing else matters. We try a lot of exercises, food and diet. But the thing that humans take in most is water. We drink more water than we eat food. Up to 60% of the human body is made of water. The world is made of 71% water. It is very clear that water is the most important thing that not only affects us, but are what made us and the place we live in. This is why we should never compromise on the quality of our water. At Sterra, we don’t want to let others determine the quality of water we drink. We want to take control and make sure the quality of water our family and us drink are the best quality.


  1. Save cost and energy

The Sterra water purifier helps you cut cost and energy. Sterra water purifier is a smart device where it draws in electricity only when you use the hot or cold water. Even then, the power needed for Sterra to make hot water is actually less than the power used to boil water with kettle. The power required for using the cooling is the less than a ceiling fan. When the machine is not in use, it will be on standby mode, in which the energy consumption is insignificant. Sterra saves you money, energy and electricity.

Sterra wins in convenience, health and cost. There is no reason to drink tap water or boiled water, just like there is no reason to drink from the well. It's time to move on... to the future of water.

Stylish and compact, this tankless hot and cold water dispenser is a great addition to your kitchen equipment. Sterra is engineered with cutting edge features that will not only impress your guests but potentially improve the quality of life of your loved ones.

It is also ideal for making formula milk for babies. It releases water at varying temperatures of 4, 25, 40, and 87 degrees celsius.

UV Automated Sterilization

Even with a busy lifestyle, you can be sure that you and your family are having a quality drink all the time. The UV-C Led is a known disinfectant for air, water, and non-porous surfaces. Sterra includes this built-in function, which cleanses itself so you never have to worry about unconsciously letting contaminants in your body.

Four Stages Filtration System

It uses a powerful and advanced technology from South Korea to filter out pathogenic bacteria, chlorine, unpleasant odors, toxins, and heavy metals. These harmful particles are not visible to the eyes and may mess up your system. Sterra takes this purification job seriously to consistently deliver high-quality water.

Volume Control

Ever experienced wasting water by accidentally overfilling a glass? The best thing about Sterra, is it complements your busy lifestyle by having the exact amount of volume poured in your cup. You can choose between 120ml, 250ml, and 550ml of liquid which are the capacity of most common glasses.

Old fashioned dispensers may cancel out the purpose of filtration by unwittingly letting used-up filters sit there unchecked.

Inner Compartment Sterilization

Research shows that electrolysis is an effective way to treat water. A self-cleaning system is in place so that the internal flow path is 100% germ-free.

By investing in a top-notch tankless dispenser, you have the assurance that your loved ones are getting no less than what they deserve-- access to clean, safe, and convenient water all the time.

The World's Most Expensive & Biggest Air Purifier

Built in 2016, the $2 million Xi’an tower is the world's biggest and most expensive Air Purifier! It is twenty-storey high!

Researchers built this to literally save lives by improving pollution in the area.

“I like to tell my students that we don’t need to be medical doctors to save lives,” said Dr. David Pui, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Minnesota and one of the researchers. “If we can just reduce the air pollution in major metropolitan areas by 20 percent, for example, we can save tens of thousands of lives each year.”

One pollutant named PM2.5 is especially dangerous because these fine particles can be breathed deep into the lungs. 

A recent study led by Dr. Cao Junji, a chemist at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the project’s leader, showed a 19-percent drop in PM2.5 around the tower’s vicinity.

In Singapore, we don't have a $2 million dollar and twenty-storey high air purifier. Thankfully, we have a much affordable and smaller air purifier that can fit in our homes... and can also reduce air pollution and remove pollutant like PM2.5.

It's called the Sterra Moon Air Purifier and it's 10,000 times cheaper and more compact!

Top 5 Reasons Why You Need an Air Purifier

Today, many purifiers are now available in the market and almost everyone is buying one. Right now, you’re probably asking yourself: “Do I really need an air purifier?”  

If you think that the air inside your home is safe, you may want to read on... The air inside your home could be slowly harming you and you might not be even aware of it. Most people think that the air inside their homes is safer because it is away from the harmful gasses and smoke coming from outdoor sources like vehicles and factories. However, there are other sources of harmful gasses and elements that might be present in your homes.

Here are five top reasons why you need an air purifier.

1. Helps prevent allergic attacks and relieve symptoms of asthma.

There are many elements inside your home that can trigger allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. If you are always sneezing, have a runny and itchy nose, or your eyes are always itchy and watery, you are probably having allergic reactions to the air inside your home.

Dust mites, pet dander, pollens, and other airborne can elements can trigger allergic reactions. People who have asthma often suffer from an attack because of harmful elements in the air. 

Most household air purifiers have HEPA or high-efficiency particulate air filters. These filters help trap harmful elements in the air and help relieve symptoms of Asthma.

2. Lowers the chance of contracting airborne diseases like cold and flu.

Flu and cold are commonly spread through the air. This is because of the small pathogens in the air from those who have a cold and flu. Contacting these diseases is very easy, even if you isolate your household member, there is still a chance that you could get sick too because it is airborne transmitted.

Air purifiers help clear harmful bacteria and viruses, lowering the chance of airborne diseases spreading.

 3. Protects your children and elders from harmful air contaminants.

If you are someone who is starting a family or if you are living with your parents who are more than 60 years old or older, consider getting an air purifier.

Children, especially babies, have a weaker immune system because their bodies are still developing. They are more susceptible to getting sick from diseases caused by contaminated air.

People who are already in their 60s or older usually have difficulty breathing. If they live in a house with a polluted atmosphere they could easily get sick because their immune system is not as good as it used to be. They can easily get flu, colds, allergies, or any disease that is commonly caused by unclean air.

 4. Removes harmful indoor chemicals in the air.

There might be harmful chemicals in the air inside your home that are slowly killing you without you even knowing it. One of them is Radon. It is a naturally occurring gas that comes from decaying uranium in rocks and soils. It is colorless and odorless and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. According to studies, 1 out of 15 households in the US has a Radon level that needs to be reduced.

Another harmful chemical in the air is asbestos. If you are living in an old house or building that was built back before the 1980s, you could be in danger of asbestos poisoning. It is a mineral fiber that occurs naturally in rocks. Most old houses are built with materials that have asbestos in them like tiles, textured paint, patching compounds, and other building materials. Being exposed to Asbestos particles in the air can lead to many lung diseases.

Air purifiers can remove both Radon and asbestos particles in the air, thanks to the HEPA filter that traps the chemicals and clears the air.

 5. Clears smoke and unpleasant odors

Smoke is very unpleasant. It can irritate not only our noses but our eyes as well. Most smoke comes with burnt or unpleasant odors. If you are living with someone who smokes or if you have an oven or fireplace, having an air purifier will help you keep your air fresh and smoke-free.

If you can relate to the reasons mentioned or have been struggling with health issues related to air quality, you probably need an air purifier.
