Review - New York Skin Solutions (NYSS)

New York Skin Solutions @ White Sands
Address: 1 Pasir Ris Central Street 3 #04-07/08, White Sands Shopping Centre S518457

Previously, I saw an offer from New York Skin Solutions (NYSS) online and their first trial facial cost only $8, so I decided to try it and asked SQ to come along too.
We made appointment for the Pasir Ris outlet, and we got there on time but we were told to wait, the waiting time was about 30 minutes -.-

Finally, the consultant came in and asked us about our skin concerns before scanning our face using a machine(don't know what it's called. lol). She showed us how normal flawless skin is like before comparing with our skin. And she goes on to say about how the facial will help.

After that, we went into the rooms to get our facials done. It started with cleansing, then extracting of blackheads(on the nose only) and ended with a mask. The extraction part hurts like mad, that's why I don't like going for facials!

Overall, I did see slight improvements(only temporary), because my skin is sensitive so my cheeks look red at times and after the facial, it doesn't look as red. After the facial, she sat us down and told us about the packages on promotion, and that if we signed up together, it'll be really cheap. But we told the lady that we wouldn't be signing on any packages, it was obvious that the attitude changed straight after we said that.
*Before we stepped in NYSS, we have discussed and said not to sign on any packages because of the countless bad reviews we saw online :x We only want that $8 promo, cheapos. LOL :p

In my opinion, I think it's only worth going for first trial and maybe if the facial treatments are sponsored (like the ones shown on tv), other than that, don't go unless you have too much money to spend.

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
