Freshly Baked Artisanal Birthday Cake | Whyzee

Earlier this month, after the PSLE, we celebrated little boy’s birthday. This year, Whyzee kindly sent over their signature freshly baked artisanal birthday cake – the Lemon Meringue Cake.

We were deciding between the Lemon Meringue Cake or the Speculoos Cheesecake but eventually decided on the former because the kids aren’t particularly fond of cheesecake. Plus the little boy does have a thing for sour stuff so lemon meringue it was.

The Lemon Meringue Cake is made of delicious lemon cake, layered with lemon custard and topped with torched creamy meringue. I think the combination of the tart lemon custard with the sweet creamy meringue is fabulous.

Not only is the torched meringue tasty, it is a sight to behold. The lemon custard is really tart, but I think it pairs well with the sweetness of the rest of the cake and because of that, you will feel that you can easily down more than one slice of cake at one sitting. Some cakes are really nice but because it’s so sweet or rich, you feel like you just can’t have anymore of it. Well, this is not one of those cakes.

Whyzee has a whole array of different cakes, there’s bound to be one that suits your needs and taste buds. They have express cakes which they can deliver in an hour, eggless ones and even vegan options. If you are not into cakes, you can also order healthy bakes such as muffins or banana walnut loaf. Besides that, they also sell flower bouquets, flower domes and balloons to create the perfect celebration package. Basically, it’s a one-stop shop for your birthday celebration needs.

There are more than 50 different cake selections and the best part is that I feel that they have priced their cakes very affordably (from $30 with no minimum order, free delivery above $100). They also do not use artificial colours or flavourings, so you are getting natural flavours in your cakes. For every cake purchased, you get to personalise a message card as well.

Happy birthday to my little boy! If you’re looking for cake delivery Singapore for your next celebration, look no further.

BenQ GS2 Wireless Portable Projector | Versatile Family Entertainment with Eye-Protection Sensors

As families continue to spend more time indoors, and with many still cautious about visiting the local cinemas since its reopening, video gaming, streaming services, and direct-to-digital releases will continue to help local families adhere to the government’s safe-distancing guideline. We are glad that we had the luxury of having the BenQ GS2 to accompany us for the past month or so.

BenQ, the world-leading DLP projector brand, launched the GS2 this year, a wireless portable LED projector designed especially for the Singapore market to maximise home entertainment as families continue to observe safe-distancing measures recommended by the government.

The GS2 is an all-in-one entertainment device that projects images of up to 80 inches in size, allowing families to enjoy the charm of big screen projection while supporting fun activities wherever they are, thanks to its wireless and mobility features. 

Basically now, you are not limited to just the small screens of the phone or tablets or even that of the television. Simply pair the projector with your phone or tablet and do a screencast on an empty wall in your home. It supports virtually any wireless or wired device. Using Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB-C, or its built-in media reader, GS2 instantly casts and plays oversized audio-visual content. Voila, home entertainment at its finest. Who needs to go to the cinema these days, right?

The GS2 is embedded with Aptoide TV app market which means that you can download tools or media apps for more streaming services, such as YouTube, Netflix, or install APK on GS2 to enjoy the content directly in a wireless environment. Due to the content protection mechanism for the subscription-based streaming platforms, you will not be able to screencast from mobile devices the content of Netflix. Trust me, we tried at first. 😀

Watching Hero Academia on Netflix

Engineered for family-friendly use, GS2 is IPX2 splash-proof and 0.5m drop-proof, offering vibrant LED light display and BenQ-exclusive LumiExpert™, an ambient light-sensing automatic brightness technology that optimizes the viewing experience (also present in the BenQ GW2480T monitor I reviewed earlier). In particular, we love the auto-focus function as we literally don’t need to take any other extra steps.

It also comes with Eye-Protection Sensors, which automatically shut off light when children get in front, and a Parental Timer to safeguard young viewers’ comfort and vision health. With the reflected light projection, the indirect light projected onto the screen/wall is safer than the direct blue light from a monitor/device – this is definitely a plus point for us.

So whether it’s playing games on the phone or watching Youtube videos, at least now we can cut out some of the direct blue light.

Powered by ultimately durable Digital Light Processing, the 2015 Academy Award of Merit Oscar® winning technology used in 90 per cent of the world’s digital cinemas, GS2 delivers long-lasting DLP picture quality with precise colours and razor-sharp clarity, coupled with a 30,000-hour maintenance-free LED light source.

I like that it is really a very portable set. It comes in a compact carrier with all that you need for hours of entertainment without compromising on eye health.

The only issue I have is that I don’t have that many large empty walls in my house to project onto. If this projector had been available earlier, we would honestly have gone without the television and just have our shows or games projected on the wall. Other than that, I think this is a really awesome product for the modern day smart family.

The GS2 retails at SGD849 (before GST) and is now available exclusively at BenQ Store on Lazada and it comes with a 3-year warranty.
