MosquitNo Official Launch - Don't bite me please!

Nobody likes pesky mosquitoes; the red, itchy, swelling bumps whenever you get bitten and especially when the cases of dengue fever has increased significantly as compared to the previous years. There has been more than 20,000 reported cases since 1st Jan 2013! Do be careful and take precautions, it's better to be safe than sorry! For some, insect repellent sprays can be used to keep mosquitoes away but it can get uncomfortable or even unsuitable for sensitive skin. I have been looking for alternatives to that and MosquitNo might just be the answer to it!

Thanks to the kind people at MosquitNo and Xiaoyuan, I got to try out some of MosquitNo products which came timely as my area recently had a few cases of dengue fever and I believe I tend to attract mosquitoes easily, never fail to see a few bites when I get home after work/school.

MosquitNo may seem like a new brand to some, but it has actually launched 2 products in Singapore market for quite sometime! For those who are unfamiliar with this brand, MosquitNo is a Dutch brand that started its activities in 2009 and has since become an innovative brand with a stylish and fresh look. MosquitNo is well known from the trendy citronella bracelets that's all natural citronella infused with 15% citronella oil and 85% silicone rubber.

What makes MosquitNo appealing is the variety of products available to cater to different occasions, ages, etc. It attracted me with the ease and convenience of the products that can be used at any time, even for traveling as it's lightweight and no liquid involved so no worries about messing up outfits, occasion, etc. One of the first products I tried is the citronella infused wristband and I'm loving it! It can be kept longer than 72 hours if you keep the bracelet back into the resealable packaging it comes with ;)

Product Features
- All natural citronella infused wristband
- 72 hours duration per bracelet

As for the other item that's available in Singapore market is SpotZzz Stickers! They are button shaped stickers that comes with 29 different designs to be adhered to blankets, caps, clothes, etc. This would be great for kids who are usually hyper active so liquid repellent doesn't stay on for long or bracelet might be accidentally slipped off. Some designs glow in the dark too! ;)

- 72 hours effective protection
- Gradually evaporates a citronella scent

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 …
