Haul & Review: Daiso #05

I'm always on a lookout for new products to try and review! Here are some of the items I bought from Daiso over the weekends:) There are so much stuffs at Daiso; if you have the time to look, you can actually find a couple of useful products that is cheaper than usual retail prices! I don't recommend anyone to go during the weekends as it's really packed and you can hardly browse without bumping into someone. So don't go there on weekends useless you have something specific in mind.

Other than browsing through at your own time, you can read my blog for the items that I think you should buy/not buy, it will save you that additional $2 for something better! :)
Every time I step into Daiso, I have to control myself from buying stuffs. My mum wanted to go there as she already had a specific item in mind. She likes the belts sold there, I'll take picture of one soon! While my mum was looking for the belts, I browsed through the items and ended up buying 3. By the way, the belts were sold out :(

1. Daiso A4 Size File Case
I've been eying these clear plastic box files for quite sometime but there always seem to be something missing. And guess what? I found my ideal file last weekend! There are quite a few types to choose from but none of it comes with handle like this one does. Not only does this comes with handle, the file is slightly bigger than A4 so it fits the clear plastic sheets which I use to separate the notes. Plus it's made in Japan! ;)
2. Daiso Point False Eyelashes
These comes in 2 lengths: 10mm and 12mm, I chose the shorter ones to try first. I'll update on this once I've tried them!
3. Daiso Hair Clip
Each clip measures 2cm width and comes in set of 16 pieces. It costs $0.13 per piece! I saw the same ones retailing at Chameleon for $0.50 each. These will last me for a really long time :)
4. Daiso Eyelash Fix Clear Glue
DO NOT BUY THIS! Although this is made in Korea, the quality is really bad. The glue dries fast but it loses the stickiness in 2 hours so eyelashes can't stay on :( I remember I was working that day and the eyelashes just dropped off without warning; I had to remove them and I didn't bring mascara that day -.- One other thing, it smells like super glue- unpleasant smell. At least it didn't give me any allergic reactions.
5. Daiso Long Lash Mascara
I think this is a new product as I haven't seen it around before(considering that I visit Daiso pretty often). This series comes in base coat, top coat, volume and long lash. I chose the one that promises long lashes without getting the base & top coat because I'm afraid it would be difficult to remove if I apply too many layers! I'll update once I've tried this! By the way, it's made in Korea :)

And to end off, I would like to recommend these 2 items:

-Florescent Double Pen (also known as Highlighters)
These are good for school and can last a long time. Regular ones cost at least $1 each from bookstores so this is a cheap alternative. The colours are vibrant too! I've been using mine for a year now and my friends brought them after I told them about it too ;)

-Pastel Chalk
For those who are interested in hair chalking, you can try these out! It comes in 18 colours and if I remembered correctly, it is made in Korea, so it's pretty safe to use ;)

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 …
