Celebrate this Festive Season with luckin coffee [ADVERTORIAL]

Celebrate this festive season with new creations from luckin coffee. Just landed at this little red dot, the Big Cheese Latte is a blockbuster product by luckin coffee, that sold over 6.59 million cups in the first week after its launch in the Chinese market.

The Big Cheese Latte is made using Classic New Zealand Cream Cheese, delivering the lovely flavour of cream cheese, reminiscent of the flavour of cheesecake. Compared to the classic latte, you can expect a more impactful boost in aroma that will elevate your coffee experience. What a way to enjoy this festive period.

Big Cheese Latte Christmas
For cheese lovers, I suggest you take a quick sip of the milky cream cheese before you stir your Big Cheese Latte. I got the solid cheese flavour right from the first sip. Once I stirred it, the creaminess blended with the coffee. While the cheese flavour was hidden after it was stirred, it surprisingly popped up again at the end.

Completing the line-up for this year's Christmas series are Toffee Hazelnut Latte, Creme Brulee Latte and Merry Cocoa Christmas.

Toffee Hazelnut Latte is inspired by the traditional Christmas flavour. The toffee hazelnut flavour combined with roasted nut aroma blended nicely with coffee and milk fragrances. The flavour and aroma of this creation will wake up the Christmas spirit in you.

Toffee Hazelnut Latte
Creme Brulee Latte is based on the classic Christmas desserts, French Creme Brulee and Caramel Pudding. The silky-smooth latte texture is infused with the sweet aroma of caramelised pudding. It's like having those lovely Christmas desserts in your drink.

Creme Brulee Latte
While the Toffee and Creme Brulee have a similar flavour base, the blend of hazelnut flavour and stronger espresso intensity really stood out in the Toffee Hazelnut Latte. The Creme Brulee is milder and creamier, so it all comes down to individual preference.

Merry Cocoa Christmas. luckin coffee’s chocolate infused milk guarantees you the creamy cocoa flavour in every sip of this concoction. Nothing represents Christmas more than a chocolate drink.

Merry Cocoa Christmas
The non-coffee drink in the Christmas Series. There is an option with or without whipped cream. I highly recommend the whipped cream for the iced version. The cream helps to enhance the flavour of the chocolate.

Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress [PRODUCT REVIEW]

Sleep is the most important part of our body’s rejuvenation system. Therefore, choosing the right mattress to get that solid and undisturbed good night’s rest is of the utmost importance. We want to wake up refreshed and rejuvenated, instead of going through your day like a zombie.

Two years ago, my Mother-in-Law bought Origin Hybrid Mattress, recommended by her sister. She was very happy with that purchase and she still uses the mattress today. With her chronic back pain, she had not once complained and slept very well. When the invitation came to do a product review Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress, I did not hesitate to accept the offer.

How & Where to Buy.
I ordered the Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress the same way as other customers purchase a product from Origin. Go to, choose the mattress and size that you want, choose any add-ons (if needed) and add to cart plus. Don’t forget to tick on the Mattress Disposal Service (if needed). The check-out process is seamless, just like when you do your other online shopping, key in your details, choose the delivery timing and make the payment. Once they process my order, I receive an email with the order confirmation.

Most people will ask, are you sure that buying a mattress online is a good idea? Especially mattress is a very subjective matter and you might want to try and feel it before you purchase. But not to worry, you can experience Origin products before you purchase by visiting Origin showroom at Ravago, 36 Kaki Bukit Place, #01-01 Singapore 416214. It is open daily from 11.00 – 17.00.

To ease your mind further, every purchase of Origin Mattress comes with 120 Night Trial + 100% Money Back Guarantee and Free Return & Delivery. Yup, you get up to 120 nights from the date of the delivery to try out the mattress and return the product if you are not satisfied with the product. 120 nights is sufficient for you to test and adjust to the new mattress, and make the final decision. The best part, if you decide to return the mattress, there is no question asked and you get 100% Money Back Guarantee.

The Delivery

The Delivery
The delivery person come at the allocated time, between 1 to 6 pm. He brought up the mattress, packed in the Origin Blue Colour Box. I was quite surprised at how the king-size Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress rolled into a quarter size and fit into the blue box.

Usually, the delivery person will unpack the mattress and set it up for you. In my case, I decided to do the unpacking myself, as I need to take some photos and videos. Once he brought the mattress to my room, he helped me to clear my old mattress. Since he is on his own, I helped him in rolling the old mattress for removal.

Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress – King, 183 x 190 x 35cm (63kg)

The Unboxing and Testing

Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress – King, 183 x 190 x 35cm (63kg). My first impression when I try to carry the box on my own, it is very HEAVY!! LD and I have to put our muscles into it when we carry the box onto the bed frame. We then removed the blue box, aligned the mattress and cut through the 2 layers of plastic. Once we cut the second plastic, the Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress starts to expand.

Once the Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress is unpacked, we have to let it settle for a few hours. We slept on it for the first night, and with the knowledge that the mattress had not fully expanded and settled. The feeling for the 1st night is the Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress feels comfortable, but the edge feels a bit soft. It took us a while before we could catch a good night’s sleep for the night. The firmness level for the first night is 7 of 10.

Day 1 - Straight After Unpacking

Day 1 - Straight After Unpacking
Fourteen days later, we have experienced the full benefit of Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress. The mattress provided our bodies with the support they needed, adjusting to our body shape. No matter which positions we slept in, it felt very comfortable and supported. So far, we have been waking up refreshed and without any backache and body ache.

Day 15 - Expanded and Settled
LD also enjoys her sleep and she has not been complaining when I twist and turn at night. She always told me she got woken up when I turned like a sea lion, now she doesn’t feel the big wave when I do my big turn at night.

Day 15 - Expanded and Settled
Another benefit that I found from Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress is that the temperature of the mattress is cooler. I can tell the difference as my pillow feels warmer compared to the mattress. The firmness level of the mattress has become 8 of 10.

Day 15 - Expanded and Settled
CBK Verdict: I am glad that I chose the Origin LumbarCloudTM Mattress. It provided us with comfortable sleep and wake up rejuvenated without any ache. Exceptional!! For those looking to buy a Luxury Mattress, go and check out Origin Mattress. The quality and price are just outstanding. Cheers!!
