#UnwrapTheFun at McDonald's New McWrap Launch Party

McDonald's will be launching more healthier choices starting this Thursday (14th August), these delightful new options would include Grilled Chicken McWrap, Spicy Chicken McWrap, Delight 500 and Garden Side Salad. If you haven't noticed, McDonald's has been constantly finding ways to update their menu to healthier choices, from the sunrise roll with wholegrain tortilla to wholegrain muffins for breakfast at no extra cost, it's time they launch new items for their lunch/dinner menu!

As more people are becoming health conscious and finding ways to cut down on unnecessary calories, McDonald's pay attention and takes into considerations such details to create healthier and more balanced meal options to cater to anyone and everyone. Well for me, I still prefer the "unhealthy" option of large fries, big mac and a cup of Sprite ;)
This new Grilled Chicken McWrap features crisp vegetables(green lettuce, purple cabbage, tomatoes, crunchy carrots), grilled skinless chicken patties, drizzled with chargrill sauce and wrapped in a warm wholegrain tortilla. The difference between this and Spicy Chicken McWrap will be the spicy chicken patty and mayonnaise sauce used.

I only managed to try the Grilled Chicken McWrap and I do love the freshness of the vegetables combined with grilled skinless chicken patty and a generous serving of the sauce. Plus, the packaging of the McWrap is convenient and good to eat it on-the-go. This will be good for those who are looking for a healthier option at Mcdonald's. However, this is not something I would order as a meal, maybe just for a snack or supper as it is hardly filling, I would need 2 of these wraps to be satisfied. That's probably the only good thing about me being skinny, no need to worry about calories :x
Moving on, Delight 500 is a set of meal options with calories 500 & under, featuring popular favourites such as Filet-O-Fish and McChicken. You can swap your fries to a corn cup/garden side salad and opt for Coca-Cola Light/Dasani Bottled Water at no extra cost!

If you want more greens in your diet, you will be happy to know that McDonald's will be adding Garden Side Salad to the menu, It features whole leaf lettuce, red and white cabbage, crunchy carrots, corn kernels and tomatoes, served with a delicious Japanese dressing. This would require a top up of $1.20 to change the side in your meal.

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 …
