Frienzie Bistro & Bar 
10 Tebing Lane, #01-02 (Punggol), Singapore 828836

I got to know about this place from Feecha last year and decided to have my birthday dinner there with ♥. We got there rather early, before 6pm if I didn't remember wrongly. The place was rather empty except for 2-3 tables. There are smoking and non-smoking areas; we chose to sit at the balcony area, even though we don't smoke, for the cool breeze and scenery of the riverbank. It gets chilly at night so it's better to bring a cardigan/jacket along!

Most of the staffs were idle and chatting on their own, only 1 waitress was attentive and helpful, serving us in a couple of minutes plus promptly answering our questions and clearing the table when we were done with our food. Thumbs up for her great service(didn't manage to get her name though)!

The price of food is alittle pricey, subjected to service charges and gst. We were early so there is happy hour for drinks: beers are 1-for-1, each costing $9.90 if I recalled correctly. We ordered Erdinger and Chili Crab Pizza. Chili Crab Pizza costs $18.90, I like this; it has thin crispy crust with handful of crab meat, generous amount of chili crab sauce and katsuobushi(dried bonito) sprinkled on top. Though it's chili crab pizza, the chili is rather mild so it's suitable for non-chili eaters like me! You can request for Tabasco sauce if you like a little more spice. The pizza is enough for 2-3 people but not enough to fill our tummies. Just when we were finishing our pizza, we noticed a table next to us enjoying chicken wings. ♥ couldn't resist fried food so he ordered a plate of Crispy Wings priced at $13.90 for 6 pieces of wings. Frankly speaking, the wings are crispy but they are really oily. I got sick of it after the first wing; I never liked fried food and I find that this is rather similar to the ones sold at IKEA restaurant, not recommended to get this!

Overall, it was a pleasant experience, might consider going back for the pizza and happy hours. It's a rather good place to relax and chill with your friends too:)

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 …
