Nuffnang Lovin' x Freeing SG

This week started with a challenging escape room game organised by the lovely Nuffies! Thanks to Nuffnang Singapore, I got to try out 5D reality escape room game for the very first time! Do read on for review and maybe some helpful tips? ;)
For those who have not heard of Freeing SG before, (I didn't know this place existed before this :x), Freeing SG is based on the popular “Freeing HK” model – the first reality room escape game in Hong Kong – Freeing SG gives players a 5D experience involving all 4 senses, where players are immersed in a physical reality to solve puzzles first hand.

Level 7, Bugis +, 201 Victoria Street, Singapore 188067
Opening Hours 
Sun – Thurs : 11am – 10pm (last game will be at 10pm)
Fri & Sat : 11am – 1am (last game will be at 12am)
A group picture before we start!

Everyone was split into teams of 4-6 where each team tried out a different room: The Unforeseeable Pyramid, Silent Blood and Unmask. Due to the limited time, we only managed to try a room for each team but at the moment, they have 6 rooms to choose from!

Our team consisting of Zed, Peiwen, Jiahui, Jazlyn, Shu Qing and me tried The Unforeseeable Pyramid which was the least scary room among the others. I was tempted to tried out the other rooms but was afraid that I would get nightmare over the next few nights. I don't usually watch horror because of that too!
So after a short briefing and signing of the indemnity form about not sharing the details of game as well as limited to playing each room once, we then proceed to our assigned rooms, where we could take pictures of the first room we enter. The game master further briefed on the rules, dos and don'ts of the game, such as help button in all rooms and only 1 hint will be given throughout the game.

Zed thought we might be able to break through if we couldn't solve but no, we weren't allowed to force open or break anything! It is more of cracking your brains and solving the puzzles only. There will be a baggage area in the first room to keep your belongings before the game starts so you don't have to worry about lugging them around.

I can't share the exact details of the room but here's an overview. Time was set to 45 minutes and I would say we got off at a good start, we managed to solve the first room's puzzle within minutes. We did have a relatively good teamwork, everyone trying out different possible combination to solve the puzzle.

However, it wasn't smooth sailing from there on, we were stuck at the second stage and that was where we had to call for help! I was so close to figuring this one out with the help of my team mates but didn't think it well enough. The time ended when we were stuck at the third stage because we forgot to refer back to our clues!  We were so close to solving that and this was probably the stage that we spent most time in.

Tip: Whatever you do, always refer to the clues given, the puzzles in the room won't deviate that much from the clues!

Anyway, the room turns out to be smaller than I thought and there wasn't any crawling or avoiding laser beams but the room still can fit 8 person comfortably and the number of puzzles to solve was definitely enough to keep you going till the last min! Overall it was a great experience, really challenging and I was almost ready to jump to the next room to try out another puzzle! I learnt something from this too, keep trying and you will succeed.

In the event that your team can't escape, the game master will share the details of how to solve the puzzles which is why each person can only play the room once.
Thanks Zed, Peiwen, Jazlyn, Shu Qing and Jiahui for being such awesome team members! :))

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 …
