Review: 12000mAh Portable Charger

 photo DSCF0997copy.jpg photo DSCF1005.jpg
Sorry for the lack of updates, I will be updating more often after my exams in May! I'm just taking a break off my books for now to update on my latest purchase, hope this will help those who are deciding on getting portable chargers! :)

I ordered this 12000mAh portable charger from qoo10.sg, formerly known as gmarket.sg for $21.80 with delivery. I'm glad I didn't get the 20000mAh model as this is already pretty heavy for a lady. It is equivalent to carrying 600ml bottle in your bag. I am used to bringing my bottled water around together with my umbrella and some essential stuffs, so with the addition of this charger, it just weigh everything down even further. So I try to charge my phone before going out but it kinda defeats the purpose of buying a portable charger right? :/

Anyway, the box set consists of a portable charger and various connectors for different models of devices (not inclusive of iphone5 cable though). It doesn't come with an adapter to charge the portable charger so for iphone users you can use the current adapter to charge but for others, you have to spend an additional $5 for an adapter.

The first charge took about 12 hours to complete, that's seriously very long, wasted alot of my electricity, no wonder my utilities bill skyrocketed this month. Lol. 1 full charge on the portable charger can charge my Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 twice (averaging 3 hours per full charge) and 50% of my itouch 4th gen (approx 40mins) so if you do the calculations, it's not very worth it. Subsequent charges took 8-10 hours and now it can only charge my Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 twice.

I wouldn't recommend a portable charger unless you are a heavy user, phone battery depletes really fast and you don't mind the weight of this.

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 …
