Haddrells of Cambridge – Premium Manuka Honey from New Zealand’s

Haddrell's Manuka Honey

Haddrell’s Manuka Honey

Since 1993, Haddrell’s of Cambridge has been making premium Manuka Honey with environmentally sustainable methods in the farming district of Waikato, North Island of New Zealand. 

With the certification of Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) from the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association (UMFHA), it proves that their products have been appraised for their quality and purity. It isn’t easy to get such quality trademark at all! I was enlightened that the products of Haddrell’s have to undergo at least 4 different laboratory test to show that it is 100%, unadulterated and natural.

If you don’t know what is UMF,  it is a grading system on Manuka Honey. The higher the better the quality. Manuka Honey has a special unique natural property by having high amount of antibacterial potency. It is great to treat sore throat, common flu and colds.  

It is not cheap to get yourself a bottle of Manuka Honey due to its many healing capabilities. So what to look for when shopping for one?

  • Make sure that the bottle of honey comes from established company
  • Only get it from trusted health food store which has knowledgeable understanding of Manuka Honey
  • Look out for certified UMF registered trademark logo

It is important to know what you are getting when it comes to Manuka Honey. Other labels like “Active Manuka 20+” is not the same as “UMF certified 20+”. The UMF standard is not just a rating of the honey. It includes a range of other rigorous testing and audits to ensure that the Manuka Honey you are getting is natural unadulterated. Now that you are educated, reward yourself!

I was invited to understand and try their products, and I was amazed by the taste of their Manuka Honey! It is great that they even produce Manuka Honey Lozenges, super convenient to sooth your throat on the go!

Recently, I have been quite obsessed with teas. I wonder, “Why not bake with it?”. Which, resulted in this wonderful chiffon cake recipe.

I know the combination of Jasmine Green Tea and Cheese sounds weird. But, the Cheese actually complements quite well with the flavor of the leaves.

Jasmine Green Tea drink is a common choice for Singaporean. Though we don’t really put cheese on our baked goods, I got my inspiration from Indonesia. Indonesians love to sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese onto their cakes. I was intrigued to try it out and when I got to try it, it was lovely.

To extract all the flavors out from the tea leaves, I infused the leaves with melted butter. I find that this will yield you a stronger aroma. I also make sure to soak the chiffon cake with brewed sweetened tea. This would make sure that the cake will not dry out when chilling it in the fridge and also at the same time enhancing the flavour of the mild Jasmine Green Tea.

YourWifi with South Korea – Affordable WIFI Connection On The Go

YourWifi, Seoul, South Korea

YourWifi, Seoul, South Korea

Why bother looking for free unsecured wifi network connections that are unreliable and risky? Avoid data theft by using YourWifi services when you are traveling!

My trip from Seoul, South Korea was amazing. It got even better thanks to YourWifi as I was always connected. Having a portable wifi router was so convenient, I was able to navigate Seoul easily with ease. It is especially great if you travel in big groups too, as you can connect up to five devices with their portable wifi router.

They even provide you with portable charger for you to charge if you run out of battery. How thoughtful!

Honestly, I’m not really good at Korean. It was a little intimidating to travel there. Especially, when I was roaming around alone for a day as I was catching a live band from my favorite singer, Roy Kim that night. Yet, knowing that there will be the internet when I needed help, I was much assured. Nevertheless, it turned out to be a great evening and I met many wonderful people along the way. With YourWifi, I was able to add them on my FaceBook right away so that we could keep in touch.
