Customizable ErgoSpine Ergonomic Office Chair Review

It’s the beginning of a brand new year! This is a milestone year for our family because the little one enters primary school. #nomorepreschoolersathome *sniff*

Last year was super eventful because we ended up selling our house and buying a new one within six weeks and eventually concluded the year in our new home. And even though there were some hiccups in the renovation works and major delay of some pieces of furniture due to the spat between Taobao and ezbuy, we finally got our place together by the end of the year. Hurray!

Due to the delay of our dining chairs from Taobao, these customizable ErgoSpine ergonomic office chairs we picked out from Primero filled in the gap for more than two weeks. It was a little weird eating at our industrial dining table with ergonomic office chairs but hey, the chairs are really awesome and comfortable.

The chairs above are exactly the same but the headrest is in a different position. The headrest is adjustable and can be used as an extra back support when needed. Kinda cool, huh? I personally prefer the extra back support when I’m sitting at the desk since I don’t usually utilise the head rest.

The height of the arm rest is adjustable as well:

Unlike normal swivel chairs, this ErgoSpine ergonomic office chair has two levers – one to control the height and the other for the back rest:

The photo above shows the maximum angle of the back rest. What I find really cool is that it can be locked in place and you can actually take a comfortable power nap on it if need be! If you can get your own office chair, I highly recommend this as an option as it has dual cushions which support your back firmly without exerting pressure on the spine. This helps to distribute the pressure to the left and right back muscles effectively, so you won’t get low back pain and fatigue due to pressure exerted by general chairs.

You can customize the Ergospine ergonomic office chair – choose from a range of colours and also material (mesh / PU leather), and you can also choose if you want adjustable arm rests.

Currently at the point of writing this post, the earliest delivery is SAME DAY delivery. For us who’ve waited for more than a month for furniture to arrive, that sounds just perfect. Start off the new year with less back ache, what say you? 😀

 

Disclosure: Thanks to Primero for providing us with two Ergospine ergonomic office chairs for our study room. No monetary compensation was received.

December events at Kidzania Singapore

Kidzania Singapore is hands down one of the kids’ favourite places! We loved it so much the first time we went that we paid for the citizenship. And that’s even though the kids only got to play like 4-5 stations for the entire day.

Since then, we’ve gone back a few times and the kids have recently become Distinguished citiZens last Sunday when we made our second trip down in December.

Two Sundays back, we were invited by Kidzania to check out the Kidz & Health event.

Kidzania SingaporeAs it was the last day of the event (it was the only day we could make it amidst our packing madness), some of the activities weren’t available anymore, but we definitely took advantage of the perks the event offered – 2 extra Kidzos for health-related jobs and save 2 Kidzos for health-related activities.

VR booth: Learning more about the importance of regular health checks

We couldn’t make it on other dates and other events Kidzania hosted such as the Christmas Family Fun event on 9 December which was held at night till 10pm, for both parents and kids alike to enjoy the various role-playing activities. But I’m sure there’ll be more such events at night for parents and children to bond at Kidzania.

So last Sunday, we went to Kidzania again because we had promised the kids that we’d be back again before the year ends. We made use of the current promotion now – 50% off adult ticket with every kid ticket purchased (we managed to save $35). The only thing is that this promotion is only for walk-ins so it’s not applicable to online ticket purchases.

The Christmas event has started at Kidzania on 11 Dec and will run till 31 Dec. This year, kids learn about empathy with Memories Through Time, themed Hope! As it’s the season of giving, it is a good opportunity to encourage kids to share their joy by giving back to the community!

Kids can take part in the Giving Hope Donation Drive by buying gifts with their well-earned kidZos for children from Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society (THK), while enjoying the Christmas festivities.

Kidzania SingaporeWhen we visited on Sunday, the booths weren’t open so be sure to check these out and make the donations when you’re there on other days.

There are also life-sized Snowmen decked in festive decorations located around in the City.
