However, as you reach for your keys in your drawer, you find out that they are not there. Now you begin to feel hysteric. What should you do now? Before you call a locksmith, do the following first:


Ask Anyone Who Has Duplicates

Recall the Whereabouts of Your Keys

In the event that you have no key duplicates, try to remember where you last saw your keys. Fight anxiety and clear your mind. In this way, you will more likely be able to retrace steps and remember the exact spot where you placed your keys. Most key openers like prosmith the locksmith in Singapore will give you advice that you begin your search in the places you are likely to drop your things the moment you arrive in your Singapore flat. These may be your worktable, bedside table, or cabinet. Or perhaps they are still in the pocket of your pants, which you hanged it at the back of your bedroom door.

Search in Unlikely Places

Especially when you have very active kids at home, your keys might be mistaken as toys. Kids in Singapore are very active and might play with your keys and end up bringing them in unlikely places, such as your medicine cabinet, bookshelf, kitchen cupboards, toolbox, and under the couch.

Tell them that they are important and should not be taken from where you left them.

Singapore to Face 100% Water Independence

Despite of limited natural water resources, a small city Singapore is regarded as the world’s leader in water recycling. Rapid population growth and water shortage due to drought has been a critical issue and problem at the heart of environment advocates focusing on water conservation.

Singapore, the only city in Southeast Asia that literally depends its water supply from Malaysia, thereby the city state is in the process to contrive model towards sustainable and yet sufficient water supply by 2016. With this, Singapore will be facing 100% independence on water sharing with Malaysia. However, in 2011, 99-year water contract agreement with Malaysia has ‘expire’. Singapore failed to renew such contract.


Singapore belongs to the wealthiest country in Asia in terms of business enterprise, real estate ownership, in a sad track; the city state is lack of natural water resources.

The Three Models of Water Recycling

Singapore’s water recycling initiative is composed of three fundamental models: “rain collection, seawater desalination, and recycling wastewater.” This model has won the 2007 Stockholm Industry Water Award.

  1. Collection of Water. Singapore uses 17 tanks to collect running water from the rain strategically located in sidewalks, rooftops, streets, open land and major waterways among others. Planting trees around city-state will provide Singaporeans better opportunity to contribute 20% of the required water.
  2. Seawater Desalination. Establishing infrastructural equipment requires huge amount of money and yet durable water conversion. In 2005, the first plant was successfully opened and two more will open soon. This method can provide 30% water requirement.
  3. Recycling Wastewater. In order to generate 50% water requirement, Singapore currently building five “NEWater” to recycle wastewater to a portable or drinking water. This process is common for industrial needs, thus producing drinking water is its core objective.

The Circle of Blue spokesman Brett Walton from the United States considers Singapore as the “world leader in recycling water.” With its inception in 2000, Circle of Blue is an American-based organization, the powerhouse of journalists and scholars working together specializing towards issues in relation to water abuse and usage.

Water shortage in Singapore is getting more serious. Singapore’s estimated water needs by 2030 hit 6,900 billion cubic meters, in contrast to 4,500 billion today. Therefore, 40% above current levels is required to reserve water supply for environmental consumption.

How to Take Care of Your Skin

Your skin will be with you until the end of time so the least thing that you can do is take care of it. There are many people that are very conscious of their skin. If you belong to this group, there is nothing wrong with that. You can do the following steps to pamper your skin:



Make sure to drink a lot of water. 8 or more glasses a day can do the trick. It can give the skin a healthy and glowing effect. Aside from that, water can reduce chances of heatstroke.

Bath and apply lotion

Taking a bath will do your skin good. If you have tea bags, you can choose to add at least three teabags to your water. After your bath, don’t forget to apply your lotion.

Skin regime  

Establish a skin regime. It is up to you if you want it before or after you sleep. You need to put cleansing toner and moisturizers. When going outside, you need to put sun block. Whatever happens, stick to your routine for better results.


Shave unnecessary hairs. The hair will soften if you shave while bathing. When shaving, use a foaming gel as a replacement for soap. Soaps can dry the skin and it can cause irritation.

Good news for Singaporeans because the National Skin Centre launched the Patient Health Portal. If you have concerns other than skin maintenance and pampering, you can always refer to the portal. The portal is an online system which permits patients to access some portion of their health records. Patients will now know remotely doctor’s schedules, prescriptions, diagnosis, allergies and more importantly the courses of action of National Skin Centre. The portal also allows the patients to email questions to the healthcare team. It is said that the response is without delay.
