We all have that friend who just gave birth during Circuit Breaker. She’ll appreciate any help that comes her way — especially things that are for the baby.
AOX COMPAC O2+
$2,780, available in 2 colours, Rose Mist and Platinum White from AOX Showrooms (Midview City & Square 2) and at TANGS (Orchard and VivoCity)
This is the world’s first antioxidant alkaline water filtration system that incorporates an Active Oxygen Steriliser function. Truly for the health conscious, this device has a 7-stage water filtration system, which removes the need to boil water (a common habit of households in Singapore). This machine can also remove toxins and bacteria from fruits, vegetables, meat and baby things, and guess what… it can also clean the air and remove bad smells from cooking. It’s quite an investment, but you get what you pay for.
