Review - Groupon

Groupon is seriously the best site to get your deals from! :D
They have good customer service and I think this is one of the reasons why they are so successful :)

Previously I bought this voucher (H I Salon - 90 min Scalp Detox and O3 Treatment
Hair Spa + Cut + Wash + Blow). It seems good, plus I couldn't find any bad reviews so I went ahead and bought 2 of them. They have 4 outlets in Singapore and I went to the outlet in lakeside after school (nearest to Clementi :p)

[ H I Salon / Faye Wong Salon @ Lakeside Review ]
The service staff at the salon have very bad attitude. When I first entered the salon, it was empty and the staffs were just sitting around using their iPhones, plus nobody bothered to look up. I had to ask 2 staffs who were sitted close to the door before they checked the appointment I made. Moreover the service provided was bad, the staff pulled my hair so hard even after I told them to be gentle. I doubt they did anything properly, the condition of my hair is the same after treatment.

I'm so glad that Groupon responded to my email within 3 working days and did a refund for the second coupon I bought! :D This wasn't the only case; there was another time where I bought a voucher for MJK Korean Crystal BBQ (reviews here), don't ever go there! :) On both occassions, Groupon responded promptly and did a full credit refund with no further questions.

Of course they don't always have such bad deals/retailers, there are great deals too, eg. Groove Dance School, Scoopz, Tsukiji Gindaco(best tako!!) and more. So if you're looking for a reliable and good deal site, go to Groupon! :p

The most recent one that I bought:
Deal till 10th!

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 …
