Chupitos Shots Bar
3B River Valley Road Clarke Quay #01-05 Singapore 179021

Chupitos Shots Bar - Singapore's first of its kind specialized shooters bar located at Clark Quay. “Chupitos” means “Little Drinks” in Spanish. With over 130 power-packed shots such as "Paddlepops", "Milo" and "Listerine", there's bound to be something that you will want to try.

♥ stumbled upon this place with his friends sometime ago and finally brought me there last night. I'm totally drawn to the place once I skimmed through their colourful shots menu which showed a wide range of shots with interesting names and a short description on the alcohol used/way to drink it. I was tempted to try almost every shot!

We were there at about 8pm so there wasn't much crowd yet. There were indoor and outdoor seats available. Feeling rather warm from the walk to the bar, we chose to sit indoors. Upon entering the bar, I noticed that it was much smaller as compared to the other bars I've been to and there weren't many by the way. The design of the place was kept simple and though the place was small; it felt like a good place to chill and drink shots for a get together with friends or prior to a clubbing session. The service was rather prompt and the staffs were friendly even when I made changes to my order after it was keyed into their system.

The first thing that came to mind when I was deciding which shots to order was, "Why didn't I think of this?" I love the concept of Chupitos Shots Bar - the variety of shots that are innovative and fun. There are individual, pair and even group shots, all with interesting names and a good mix of alcohol + mixers to bring out the pretty colours.

Anyway, we ordered 5 different shots each, namely "Listerine", "Volcano", "Angels Wing", "Snake Charmer" and "Dead Baby". These are listed under their happy hour promo shots from 6.30pm - 9pm so if you want to try out some shots, this timing will be the best time to head down.

Pardon the blurry picture taken by ♥. Both "Listerine" and "Volcano" shots were listed under Dare category. Before drinking these, I had expected them to be stronger than the rest, I didn't expect that it would be that bad. "Listerine" had a very strong minty taste, the aftertaste was much worse than mouthwash of course and the description mentioned to gargle before breathing in sharply through teeth. "Volcano" wasn't any better, it had a drop of Tabasco which gave a burning sensation down one's throat.

After going through the worst, I was looking forward to the rest of the shots that should be rather mild. Out of all these shots, my favourite was Dead baby - a yummy shot that came with a gummy. A sweet treat after enduring those Dare shots. Lol.

Ending off with a picture of us! I would love to visit The Chupitos Bar again for their innovative shots; planning to try "Paddlepop" after reading the good reviews! Do share with me the drinks you've tried and would recommend if you've been there before ;)

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 …
