Unboxing + Review: The Black Box February 2013

I'm sure many of you have heard of beauty boxes aka sampling boxes where you receive one each month containing sample sizes of various products. It's so exciting to receive a box full of surprises after a long day of school/work, opening it and finding products that you might love!

Today I'm going to share this awesome box that I just found: The Black Box. It is the newest sampling box in town. Unlike many of the sampling boxes out there, The Black Box is completely free! Yes, you read it right, it's 100% free and hand delivered to your doorstep.

The Black Box is sent out bi-monthly for free, all you have to do is to complete a survey after receiving that month's box. It is available for ladies & gentlemen, containing at least 5 product samples varying from skincare samples to vouchers for products/services.

When I first submitted my subscription, I was skeptical whether it would be completely free and if there will be hidden charges. An email was sent to inform me that the box will be delivered after 25 Feb, but it arrived earlier than expected, delivered to my doorstep by Ta-q-bin and I didn't have to pay a single cent! The Black Box was sealed well and samples were wrapped nicely. I was also pleasantly surprised by the contents of the box, it contained a total of 8 samples + vouchers.

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 …
