ErgoBloom, the best study desk for your kids

Boon Yee studying on his ErgoBloom kids study desk. He is studying hard for his PSLE, and this ergonomic table came in time to help him concentrate.

ErgoBloom (sold by ergonomic furniture retailer ErgoEdge) come in two sizes and colors, regular/large sizes in either pink or blue. Since ErgoBloom is designed to grow with children, we chose the large pink so that there is enough space for two kids to study side by side.

With ErgoBloom, Boon Yee has improved his posture. He is much more productive now and is able to prepare for his PSLE comfortably.

Sturdy quality with adjustable heights, ErgoBloom is designed to grow with our child.

The set also comes with various add-ons such as foot rest, book shelf/holder and wristpad to provide a more conducive and comfortable study environment for your child.

Here’s the best part.

The desk and chair are fully adjustable, so we can adjust it for our child’s comfort as they grow. This ensures that our child would not sit awkwardly in an ill-fitting desk.

Once a child cultivates good posture and is comfortable, not only will he be confident in his posture, he will fidget less and naturally be able to concentrate better on his studies.

The ergonomic table literally grows with the child, promotes and enforce good posture on children of all ages, stretching our ROI!

The ErgoBloom table top can be tilted to minimise strain to the neck, this prevents kids from developing “forward neck posture”.

The non-reflective surface minimise light ray from reflecting into a child’s eyes, especially from electronic devices. This will reduce the impact of astigmatism, and delay the progress of myopia.

ErgoBloom is designed by ErgoEdge, and Boon Yee’s table looks more impressive than my own computer table.

Be it for study or entertainment, ErgoBloom allows the kids to focus and manage their work area.

BloomChair comes with ergonomic features like height, backrest, and seat depth adjustments to get your kid the perfect fit.

The standout feature is the unique flexible split-backrest design. It reacts to any shifts in our kid’s back to immediately fill in the gaps. This provides high levels of support and comfort, thus reducing pressure to the back and spine by up to 75%.

Some studies have shown that this design gives the best shoulder and back support, helping your your child to slouch lesser and sit straight more often.

ErgoEdge chair has a safety feature too. The rollers are automatically locked when someone sits. This would prevent accidentally rolling over toes!

Our ErgoEdge table is both functional and aesthetic.

Good Luck Boon Yee with your studies!

The ErgoBloom is undoubtedly one of the best kids study desk available in the market.

Family’s first experience at Yunomori Onsen & Spa

Therapeutic and invigorating, that was our experience at Yunomori Onsen & Spa (Google review). Yes, bucket list untick for family.

We were invited to soak in Yunomori Onsen’s latest bath. When we step into the secluded premise in our Yukata, we were transported into another dimension 🙂

We are still in Singapore, but we got imbued with a bit of Japanese culture and ambience.

Yunomori Onsen

We need to keep our shoes before registering for our session. A wrist tag will be issued for the second locker to keep our clothes and stuff.

The same tag will be used for payment at the cafe too.

I told the kids that Yukata must be wore (right to left, then left over right). Wearing it opposite is considered bad luck as it is meant for dead person!

Happy ootd posing, this is our virgin Onsen trip.

We made our way to the cafe for a sumptuous dinner.

Pretty easy to navigate in Yunomori Onsen & Spa, Onsen one side and everything else on the other side.

Let us enjoy our dinner first. On hindsight, I would have preferred to soak first before eating. Food always taste nicer when we are hungry 🙂

Japanese cuisine to get us into the mood, introducing 2019’s menu.

Nigiri Platter

Plum Rose Sparkle – this will definitely cool everyone down, love the refreshing scent of plum and mint

Chuka Snack – yummy baby octopus and jellyfish

Mentai Gyoza

Salmon Sashimi Don – Refreshing and satisfied my salmon craving

Ume Ochazuke

Yee loves his Ramen.

Tonkotsu Spicy Ramen

Salted Egg Mix Tempura

After a satisfying meal, we are ready to 泡湯 soak.

Everything about Yunomori Onsen and Spa was a novelty for my family:

-Being stark naked with 30 others
-For females, disposable panties and bra are available
-Kids felt weird sitting on stool and scrubbing ourselves clean? But I like the repeated process of scrub rinse and scrub again

-Dipping from pool to pool, different water and temperature (always start from the least hot)
-Told them beforehand that we should not spend more than 15 minutes in pool, let the body cool down before soaking in another pool

-First timers can read up about Onsen etiquette on Yunomori website

I was just curious whether there is a difference to the Onsen experience between tropical Singapore and cool Japan.

A pity our kids are a bit too short, Boon Yee had to squat in the pool and could not sit down on his butt. Otherwise, he was game and joined me in all the pool, except the cold one .

Do not leave your child wandering alone, they might jump into the 42 degrees pool or they might start swimming! Besides, you never know what sort of folks are in an onsen.

He find it more cool to walk stark naked, whereas conservative Dad use towel to cover crotch. I would not be so shy in Japan 🙂

Jacuzzi, jet and the new Yufuin pool. Each pool was a new experience. Onsen pool is hottest but most original, but too hot for kids.

Each pool has a different quality, from joint muscle relief, improving blood circulating, to skin improvements and detoxification.

Finish each “lap” with a dip in the 17 degrees cold bath! The extreme temperature dip between hotand cold will jolt your body and close all the pores (shiver! )

You will definitely feel chilled and rejuvenated.

Steam room and Sauna proved too hot for kids but Yee was curious to pop in the rooms and experience. He commented “Cannot see anything and the steam irritated his nose whenever he breathes”.

Yufuin bath is the latest addition to Yunomori Onsen & Spa. We heard the district (same name) in Southern Japan is famous for the hot spring water, which is clear or bluish and are known to have a natural moisturizing effect on the skin.

After the bath, we wore our Yukata and headed back to the cafe. I wanted my family to enjoy some fresh milk, but alas all milk sold out!

If you have been to Japanese onsens before, the milk always taste sweetest after a soak 🙂

Some might choose to relax in a comfortable lounge and snooze away.
Nothing like an Onsen to drive away all our stress and fatigue.

One can actually feel tired and dehydrated after an onsen, drink up.

Massage anyone? We heard Yunomori Onsen and Spa’s massage services are highly recommended.  Treat the spouse to an aromatic rub, Thai massage might be too harsh on the joints hee hee.

Till we fly to Japan, Yunomori would be the next best option to enjoy a good Onsen experience.

Thank you Yunomori Onsen for the rejuvenating invite.
