Review: MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask

Do you spend long hours working in front of a computer, study or work till late hours then hardly getting enough sleep? Constantly staring at computer, TV or mobile phone screens seem to be something inevitable in this time and age. The technology that allows everything to be more efficient tends to overwork our eyes after long hours of usage, making them fatigued and tired.

Like me, though I haven't actually started working full time, I do use mobile phone and computer rather frequently (like now, as I'm blogging this) so my eyes feel dry and tired even though I'm not wearing contact lenses as often as before. Sometimes the stress from part time work or school can cause sleepless nights which adds on the burden to my precious eyes.

Usually after a long day, I would take a warm bathe before using facial or eye masks that I had placed in the fridge a day before to relax and hopefully recharge enough for the following day. It sounds simple but at least I try to do something! Do you?
Other than using chilled masks to relax, I found something interesting that warms up on its own and it's good for relaxing tired eyes. Introducing MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask, an innovative product from Japan! I've noticed this product for a long time but didn't have the chance to try and I'm glad it's finally available in Singapore stores! It's said to relieve and relax tired eyes in just 10 minutes!
MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask comes in 4 variants: Unscented, Fresh Rose, Lavender and Chamomile. Each box contains 5 innovative self-warming steam eye masks that will gradually heat up to a comfortable 40℃ once opened. Isn't it cool, the way the mask warms up within seconds? I tried it myself but I didn't have a glass with me so I used a plastic cup, it isn't as obvious but you can see the "After" picture with some steam at the top!
Once opened, I find that the mask resembles a sanitary napkin with its lightweight cotton material. I tried the Chamomile mask first and I really loved the scent, it's aromatic and further helps to relax myself when I'm using it. The soft ear loops that comes with it allows usage even if you're standing up(doubt anyone will do that, but you get what I mean)! A short 10 minutes is all you need to de-stress and relax tired eyes.
The heat gradually increased and maintained at a comfortable temperature that I almost fell asleep with it! The coverage is good, able to cover my full eye area and steam produced from the heat leaves moisture on my eye area which can help to moisturise and relieve tired eyes. I used this in the middle of the day so after this short session, I feel refreshed to keep on going with what I needed to do! Even though it mention 10 minutes is all you need, I find that the mask maintained its heat for about 20 minutes!
Not sure if it will be suitable for you? Don't worry, you can redeem free samples of the mask from SampleStore before buying the retail-size item! More information on MegRhythm Steam Eye mask can also be found on

A box of 5 masks cost $6.50 and is available at Guardian and Watsons outlets! :)

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 …
