Channel U Private Screening : Scrum! 冲锋!‏

Happy mid week!~ I'm sure many of you are looking forward to weekends, but not for me because weekend means work days for me! :/

Anyway, if you follow my blog, you would notice that I have been posted quite a few new shows from Channel U since January. And today I'm adding one more to the list, which is Scrum! I really enjoyed the new productions that Channel U have added this year. It has brought more variety to the limited number of shows that I could watch on free TV and at the same time I could learn more about Japan, Korea and even authentic Singapore foods through these shows. How awesome is that?!
This time round, I attended the premiere screening for their new drama: Scrum! 冲锋!‏ at Sheraton Towers Singapore Hotel. A drama that had caught my attention through numerous advertisements while I was watching TV. It kinda resembles Taiwan campus-like drama and it was filmed in Nanyang Polytechnic; reminded me of my polytechnic days.
A short introduction about the new drama, taken from Mediacorp:
Five years ago, Greenwood Polytechnic’s Black Rhino rugby team was the undisputed champions in the rugby arena. The situation changed when senior players graduated and the standard of the current team steadily declined. Although the rugby players are passionate about their game, no matter how hard they try, they experience failure year after year at competitions. Their only hope is for an experienced coach to lead them on a path to victory.
In comes Alexis Wong (acted by Felicia Chin), a champion rugby coach in the B Division boys’ team, who had a fiery temper and in-born arrogance. She takes on the job as their interim coach grudgingly to bid time, with no intention of lifting a finger to train the players. However, after a few eventful encounters, the Black Rhino boys’ sincerity and hunger for success start to change Alexis’s attitude.
Jeff from Y.E.S 933 hosted the show for that night. After some introduction about the drama, in came the main casts from Scrum! 冲锋!‏, starting from left: Felicia Chin, Chris Lee, Jeffery Xu, Allen Chen, Jae Liew, Carrie Wong, Chen Zhi Hao Junior, Derrick, Ron Teh, Alvin Or, Winston Soh. Each of them did a short introduction before they told us about the interesting things that happened on set.
Took a quick snap of pretty Felicia Chin while she's sharing on her role as the coach!
Before the screening begins, Jeffrey Xu took the stage and sang the theme song of  Scrum! 冲锋! I love the catchy and upbeat song but I can't find it on youtube, otherwise I would have included it here. Do catch the drama on TV tonight and you will know how good the song is!

Once the screening started, I'm glued to it. Yes, it is that good! The drama is entertaining and hilarious at parts; everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves throughout the screening. It was a pity that they only showed the first episode, I would be glad to sit through the whole series there and then! I particularly enjoyed the parts where Felicia and Chris bickered with each other. With Felicia's fiery temper and Chris's happy-go-lucky attitude, it's no surprise that he would annoyed her with his playful ways. But I think sparks will fly after sometime and I'm looking forward to that!
There was a short puzzle game session after the screening before group photos are taken, here's the one with some of the other invited bloggers. Thank you Channel U for this screening!
Starting from tonight (26th February 2014), do catch SCRUM! 冲锋! on Channel U every Wednesdays-Fridays at 8pm! You will definitely enjoy it! :)

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 …
