I remember the paper soap flakes that comes loose in a packet as a novelty gift. I thought it was paper decoration coz it was so thin and my aunt told me to throw it into a bucket of water or tub coz its actually soap and an old world bath luxury type thing.
These are carved soap flowers from Thailand, they look just like wax candles that you can also get in Thailand. It's a prestige gift and my dad received a traditional jasmine garland version that we still keep in the display cabinet at home.
Anyway, the thing is now you can get carved soap roses in Singapore via Qoo10. I bought a big bouquet and a box of rose soaps. Yes, it's soo delicate it actually looks like the real thing and smells wonderful too. For Mother's Day and Father's Day, it will keep quite well until the actual day. There are more realistic bouquet styles available and I will be purchasing these instead of real flowers this year.
Received this cute floral arrangement from FarEastFlora last month, cannot remember when was the last time I received flowers. The vase is concrete, a pretty cool keepsake as there are not that many concrete home accessories out there.
