The weekend is finally here! It’s the perfect time to relax, unwind, and charge up out batteries for the coming week.

But do you order take-out or go out to eat?

As much as it’s easy and tempting (with so many options, restaurants, and even fast food places to choose from), the prevalence of home-cooked food is slowly fading in favor of eating out.

But this isn’t just because of being lazy – we really don’t have the time to do so. For many Singaporeans, it’s become a hassle, with hectic work schedules leaving people too tired or hungry to take the time and cook.

However, this doesn’t mean that the kitchen should be counted out just yet. Here are three key reasons why you should cook your meals at home instead of eating out too much:

1. Going out to eat has become a global trend (and it’s still more expensive).

This isn’t in itself a bad thing. There are a lot of reasons in life to celebrate, and that celebration often comes in the form of having a good meal in a nice restaurant. However, doing this often can have consequences, not just on your waistline, but also on your wallet.

One advantage that cooking at home has in particular is that it saves you a significant amount of your budget. You don’t have to pay for a single meal every night – any leftovers on hand can easily be stored for extra portions you can reheat later on, or cook as ingredients for other meals.

2. Home cooking has some direct benefits.

You’ll be able to control your portions, you’ll know exactly what goes into your food and how it was prepared and cooked, you can add all kinds of lean protein and healthy fats and oils, and all you need to do is take the time to buy the ingredients and learn how to cook them properly.

You’ll also be able to learn a valuable skill that you can practice over time to be good at. What more could you get out of it?

3. It strengthens relationships.

If you still happen to live with your parents, it will be no surprise that learning to cook will definitely help to ease up on some of the responsibilities at home. If you plan on moving out, having this invaluable life skill will make anyone want to be your roommate.

Cooking can also be a good hobby you can get into to de-stress, pick up and master new culinary skills, and be a way to meet new people over something you enjoy doing.

  • In order to be prepared for any emergency, one of the first things you need to do is to keep your medicine cabinet (this will be your home pharmacy) well-stocked.

    However, this can be confusing. There are countless types of medications being manufactured, and most medical providers can’t give you working knowledge on every single one in circulation. This means that certain medicines that are available in certain countries may not be readily available in Singapore, and vice versa.

    But the good news is that by following some guidelines, you don’t have to worry. Here’s what you can do to get started:

    1. Make a list of the different medications your medicine cabinet will need.

    Most of the time, this will consist of over-the-counter medicines, such as the following:

    • Pain and fever medication – For reducing symptoms of high fever and providing relief from mild headaches or migraine, paracetamol should be a staple in any medicine cabinet.
    • Topical Antibiotics – Ointments that reduce minor skin infections come in different kinds, all of which are just as effective.
    • Antifungal – Athlete’s feet, fungal rashes, or even yeast infections can be easily treated with over-the-counter antifungal medication. 
    • Mild Laxative – Constipation and low bowel movement are things that can be alleviated with a mild laxative, such as docusate sodium.
    • Antihistamine –You can control non-stop itchy nasal allergies or dry up a watery nose using over-the-counter antihistamines.
    • Decongestant – Congested noses in the house will be sure to thank the existence of decongestants after a hard rain. Be sure to take them during the day so that you can blow your nose.
    • Cough Medicine – Be sure to know the difference between the two types: expectorants (which makes you cough by loosening up mucus), and suppressants (which control or reduce coughing).

    Don’t forget the other non-medicines that need to be in your cabinet! Items such as antiseptics (rubbing alcohol, Betadine, etc.), Band-Aids, bandages, gauze, medical tape, or anything that you would see in a first-aid kit are also needed.

    You should also keep in mind that your medicine cabinet should be far away from any sources of heat and moisture. This allows them to keep for longer.

    Tip: Don’t buy hydrogen peroxide – it has no effect on wounds and only makes them take longer to heal.

    2. Keep an inventory of how often you’re using them.

    While you think this shouldn’t matter (people don’t often get sick), it’s easy to rush to your medicine cabinet only to find that either you ran out of one particular type of medicine or that the medicine is already expired.

    Throw out medicines that are past their expiry date and restock with ones that aren’t expired. Always be sure to check the label.

    3. Know when to see a doctor.

    If certain symptoms persist after a few days despite taking the over-the-counter medications, consider seeing a doctor immediately for early diagnosis and treatment.
