4.0 out of 5 stars Works well so far, May 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My parents live near a nature park and sometimes have visiting deer which loves their plants especially the lovely hydrangeas that my mum tirelessly planted and nurtured.

They have had several occasions where most of their garden had been munched off by the deers to my mum's dismay and frustration.

My mum was glad to have the deer repellent to prevent such future incidents. She is happy that it's an enclosed capsule-like repellent that she doesn't have direct contact and gives her a peace of mind that deers will no longer invade her garden.

Thus far, I haven't heard of any deer getting into her garden since installation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute hybrid of skirt and shorts for a little girl, May 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This 2 tab pleated scooter is of a thicker than usual and sturdy material which my cousin claimed was great as the material does not crease easily. In addition, this skirt and shorts hybrid allows her daughter to run about freely without accidental exposure of her legs in public.

My niece also likes having elastic waist bands bottoms as its easier and quicker for her to wear it without worrying about buttons and snaps etc.

Cute outfit for the late spring - summer!


Philips AVENT SCF330/20 Comfort Manual Breast Pump
Philips AVENT SCF330/20 Comfort Manual Breast Pump

5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient pump for drawing out the last bit of milk without using an electric double pump, May 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great manual pump when my wife needs to pump out the extra bit of milk after breastfeeding my newborn and do not want to bring out her double electric pump to do the job.

She loves that the manual pump has a comfort lining and that with a simple squeeze, she is able to pump out the milk without leaking at the sides.

Because we have AVENT bottles, it is very convenient for us to just switch out and cap the bottle for feeding at a later time and replace it with another AVENT bottle.

Washing the manual breast pump is also very manageable as it does not have too many parts.

Overall, a convenient and easy way of getting the last bit of milk from the breast without bringing out an electric double pump (though my wife also loves her double pump).

4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile throw for a car, couch or can be used as a toddler blanket, May 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Soft and plush throw that goes well on a couch. It is a little too small for an adult bed as a blanket but a nice size for a toddler or in a car.

This will be one throw that I will be bringing for my camping trips or long road trips as it is very comfortable.

It is also a good throw for the couch for cover up of spills from my toddler daughter...

3.0 out of 5 stars Decorative towels - great for entertaining guests not for heavy duty usage i.e. cleaning up toddler's spills, May 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice decorative kitchen towels especially when we have guests over, however, the quality of the towel seems lacking as it is fairly thin - unlike the ones we bought from Costco which are generic but of thicker quality.

It does absorb liquids well but not enough to do a one wipe when my daughter spills an almost full cup of water as compared to the Costco kitchen towels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids transitioning from sippy cup or for adults during their travels, May 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This bottle has button with a flip top making it easy open and/or close with a single hand. It is a good transition from a sippy cup to this Squeeze water bottle for a kid as it is of plastic material, however, we also have the Contigo Autoseal bottle which I liked better as it is leak-proof and non-squeezed type.

Overall, this is a great bottle for a kid as it is not easily damaged and holds a decent amount of water. It can also be used for travels by an adult as it is a compact sized water bottle.


Battle of the Bulge [The Young Readers Adaptation]
Battle of the Bulge [The Young Readers Adaptation]
by Rick Atkinson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $14.02

5.0 out of 5 stars Good resource to engage a young reader into learning History, May 14, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A vivid yet easy to read on the deciding battle against the Germans in Rick Atkinson's adaptation of "The Guns at Last Light".

I liked that the book was formatted in a clear and readable matter with photos of the actual happenings which I feel makes it interesting for young readers to read this piece of important history and 'the greatest American battle of war ... and victory' as proclaimed by Sir Winston Churchill.

In this book, the reader will find legends on how to read a map, the timeline of the World War II - including one that of the Japanese side, who's who in the War and resources such as Bombs and Weapon etc.

Definitely a good resource and read to engage a young reader for a History lesson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blonde and smart, May 14, 2015
This review is from: Getting Real (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Admittedly I got this for my wife but due to her positive reaction, I read this book as well and I am glad I did.

This is one of the better celebrity biography that I have read so far and one that actually makes sense.

Gretchen is very candid about her life as a child - her determination and hard work shown even at age 6 while she was trying to learn how to play the violin. Her view in life when she suffered setbacks in school and how she put in the effort and hard work to be better at what she does.

She talks about how she (almost always) felt a little left out of with people of her age as she often found 'comfort' in the people who were older than her throughout her childhood through adulthood, most probably due to the fact that she learned the violin and that takes a strong discipline to be really great at, and she was as she performed in public not once but twice as a violin prodigy.

Most notably, when she had to choose after her stint as Miss America when she was offered a career at Fox and News and taking her place in Stanford University. Which she chose the latter and it was a very smart thing to do, since Fox was 'wooing' her into the job, she was able to negotiate for both.

What I really admired was that she was a thinker, a planner and a very industrious woman. Someone who doesn't 'let up' even when she had things going for her. So to those who like to stereotype blondes, please think again for this is one smart blonde TV celebrity host/journalist. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Safe, Easy and (almost) Effortless cooking - juicy and flavorful sacuy chicken within minutes, May 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As easy to use as the InstaPot that my parents have. The programing for cooking is easy to manage and its a stainless steel pot which unlike the Aluminum ones doesn't leech into the food and would last through hard scraping.

It is almost as quiet as the InstaPot and I do see quite many similarities, however, as this is my first cooking of saucy chicken - which turned out very juicy, flavorful and tender without much effort, compared to my previous boiling the chicken for at least 2 hours, I liked it very much.

I will have to see if this (Elite Platinum pressure cooker) will last as it seems that others have issues of it dying after a couple of uses - but I am crossing my fingers ...
