Review: Catch 'N Bite

Located in Westgate Mall, Catch 'N Bite is a takeaway store that offers affordable and fuss-free seafood choices using the freshest ingredients. Most importantly, it's halal certified! A good place to consider if you want fast takeaway but quality food to go with the occasion. The variety of choices available is suitable for a simple fuss-free meal, snacks for classes or even for a simple outing, picnic, etc.
Feeling famished, I started off my meal at Catch 'N Bite with Clam Soup ($4.90) and Crispy Calamari ($5.90) that I shared with ShuQing. These are under the Cre 'O! Bites which costs between $4.90-$8.90 each.
Clam soup wasn't something I would usually go for, because of the fishy aftertaste that some soups gave. Good news is, Catch 'N Bite's clam soup is made using the freshest ingredients in real lobster stock so it gives a rich seafood flavour that is addictive. I drank half and started with my sandwich which smelled too good to resist, so when I got back to drinking the cold soup, it still taste as good if not better! :)
Plus, they don't scrimp on their ingredients, I lost count of the clams I ate while drinking the soup! I would definitely get this the next time I'm there.
Moving on to the mains, I went with their best seller sandwich and I'm impressed. Usually I will pick out the pickles from sandwiches but this combination goes well together. You can taste each ingredient (lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, spicy mayo) and all of them help to accentuate the highlight of the sandwich: soft shell crab. It  helps to bring out the crispness and the fleshy meat of the soft shell crab. Moreover, it doesn't have that oily aftertaste.
After a hearty meal, I finished off with a seafood tart, namely Mango Chutney Shrimp, a combination of both of my favourite foods. I like the succulent prawn in the bed of lettuce complete with mango chutney but the tart itself doesn't go well with the ingredients, or maybe because I was full from the sandwich and soup that I didn't like the last bit.
I shall give this a try another time when I'm not full :x
Don't say I didn't share, do quote CandyCatchNBite for a free Mango Chutney Shrimp seafood tart when you make a purchase of any sandwich. This way you can try the yummy sandwiches plus the seafood tart at the same time! You might get addicted to it ;)

Thanks to TheInfluencerNetwork for the food tasting invite! :)

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 …
