HKTDC DG Studio- a touch of creativity in lifestyle products

Hong Kong, as the unique city embracing both Eastern and Western cultures, is known as the birthplace to many unique homegrown brands which have taken creativity and imagination a notch higher to capture the imagination and satisfaction of end users.    

HKTDC DG Studio is pleased to bring 14 Hong Kong lifestyle brands, ranging from houseware, gadgets to gifts and toys, to Malaysian consumers. All these brands have a quirky unique twist and it'll make great Christmas gifts! Now, here's solving your headache hehe Best part? You don't need to fly all the way to Hong Kong to get these gifts.

Now check out what I got  from HKTDC Studio, each item unique in its own way =)

Artiart is an innovative design household products brand that produces home wares, drink wares and business-related items with a creative, quirky fun and colourful take. Its AR Iceberg Suction Cup, with its grip bottom, and 100% leak proof Elegance Suction Bottle is heaven-sent for accident-prone individuals and are the company’s best sellers.

Artist Suction Bottle (RM75)
Got myself the Suction Bottle. Perfect for travel as the grip pad design reduces spillage occurances.

The best part?
It is also fall proof!! And I'm so loving the pink colour. To pick it up, just lift it vertically. It is chic looking yet a functional product. Love products like this.

For those who enjoy the finer things in life, Tea Lab, as its name suggests, indulges in all things tea. Tea lovers will find the process of brewing a cup of tea more fun with the brand’s creative tea infusers and tea making accessories. Its unique tea scoop and infuser are firm favourites. 
 Got myself the Tea Clip and Tea Helper.

Tea Clip (RM30)

It comes with a clip and 50 filter bags. Super convenient to pack tea leaves. Just grab as much tea leaves, pour into the bag, fold it over the clip and stir in hot water.

You can even tilt it horizontally in case you don't want your tea to be too concentrated.

Super convenient and I was finding everywhere for something like this for my tea leaves. Tea leaves are so hard to brew by itself because you will ended up drinking some of the leaves as well so this was the perfect solution!

Tea Helper (RM17)

You know how sometimes the tea bag falls into your cup or the paper holding it comes off and there's no weight for the tea bag? Well, this is your solution! A tea button helper. Just press it onto your cup/mug, and tie the tea bag string around it. Wa-la! It holds on until you finish your cup. Another way is that if you don't want your tea concentrated, just tie the bag higher than the water level and if you need more, add more water after that. Genius!

For the ultra-discerning hostess, Hoobbe’s household products are creatively and cleverly designed to make excellent conversation starters when hosting guests at home. Designed with a dash of quirk and fun, its Wooly Pins Pushpin, Floaty Duck Salt & Pepper Shaker, Right Cake Measuring Cups and Thanks Giving Salad Server are bound to arouse interest.

Captain Ketchup (RM35)

Now this was something I wanted in my household but never got around to purchasing it haha

You know how the normal glass bottle chilli sauce can be uncontrollable?

And you ended up with a blop of sauce too much?

Captain Ketchup to the rescue!
With this cute ketchup bottle, you can control the pressure of how much sauce is needed to be squeezed with just the right amount of sauce needed for your egg ham sandwich!

Konstar specialises in small household appliances. Its design innovation simplifies how time-consuming household chores are done. 4 of its products have since been awarded the Red Dot Design Award. The Super Apple Peeler received the Red Dot Award 2014 honorable mention while the Salad Master which clinched the Red Dot Award 2014 is equally genius.

This was something I've been eyeing for ever since I laid eyes on it!

Konstar Master Chopper (RM130)

It's like an all in one tool. You'll be surprised at how many things it can do in just one little equipment!

There's a blade, a beater, spinner basket, suction base and a lock bowl.

Here's some large onions. In order for me to chop these into tiny pieces, it requires tears and time and a bit of work.

With the Master Chopper, I chopped these into tiny pieces below 10 seconds with no tears to dry. I was so happy that I almost teared! I not only saved time, but the consistency was fantastic! Human cut cannot be that tiny even and this is literally a life saver because whenever you cook, you surely need onions and garlic. Imagine how much time I save every single day =')

Another function is a spinner to rinse vegetables, fruits etc.
Just add water into the base bowl, put the vege into the basket and lock it.

Then spin it. In less than 10 seconds, take it out and it's ready to be eaten. As easy as 1,2,3.

There's also an egg white separator. Just break an egg into it and the white will drip below. Then, use the beater to beat the egg white. Either that or when you are mixing a batter and you need to pour some water into it, just use this function so that you don't need to keep opening the cover.

Super love this product which is super useful for my daily kitchen use since now I'm a wife and a chef LOL

Tech-enthusiasts will love Hyone’s range of products. It markets smart and stylish design solutions for all occasions, with its focus on mobile phone gadgets and electronic accessories. Its Chic Crystal Ring that attaches to mobile phones to serve as a phone stand and fall proof Stand Firm Cup are best sellers. Hyone’s Mini Selfie Stick with bluetooth remote and mini tripod is highly useful for Instagrammers.
