Run to Walk SG

One of my new year resolution will be to keep fit; I'm doing so by going for a run every Saturday(unless it rains, missed out 1 run so far). It may seem little to those who work out on a regular basis but it's actually a good start for me! The last time I had a proper run was probably in TP, for the compulsory fitness test, and that was more than 2 years ago!

So I decided to start on this healthy lifestyle with the help of my sister; she's been doing runs in the last few months of 2012 and I really want to be like her, fit with muscles and not skinny like a stick. Haha yes I know I'm like a stick, from what I remember, it has something to do with thyroid(will cover this another time).

My sister chanced upon Run To Walk SG when she was finding out more about runs. We decided to join as it's free and regular runs are organized every week, plus your timings are recorded for you to gauge how well you do. She felt that we would be more motivated to complete the full run instead of giving up halfway, which most lazy people like me might do.

Some information taken from their site ( ):
It is aligned with a nationwide program, Vision 2030, which was set up by the Singapore Sports Council. To learn more about Vision 2030, visit RTWrun draws inspiration from the popular parkrun in the UK which offers free weekly 5km time trials. It is a free initiative to promote healthy lifestyle, as quoted: Investing in our health through running.

Here's a picture from last week's run!

I'm sharing this so that more people will know about Run to Walk SG and you can meet like-minded people through this so why not? Like I said, it's never too late to start taking care of your health so why not start now and join RTWrun?:) You can find out more from their website:

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 …
