Covo Singapore @ Tanjong Pagar

With increasing popularity and growing customer base, Covo Singapore opened a second outlet in November last year to cater to more customers. It is situated near Maxwell Market, just opposite Fairfield Methodist church and a relatively short distance from their first outlet too. One could get there by alighting at Tanjong Pagar Mrt and walking in the direction towards Maxwell Market, taking approximately 10 minutes.
Covo's second outlet is of a smaller scale and more cozy with a modern touch. Upon entering the salon, you can see the full size of the place and partitions like the other outlet, to create semi-private spaces for each customer. A comfortable sofa is also placed near the entrance with a stack of latest magazines from Japan, etc, which is good for those who bring their other half along.
The products that Covo carry are displayed at the window which is next to the sofa, so you can easily pick them up to see. In addition to that, each booth has a stack of magazines together with the product catalog for you to refer during the hair pampering session.

Moving on, I was greeted by Ryu-san, also known as Marco, as many couldn't pronounce his name in the right way. Personally, I liked Ryu better so I asked him to correct me till I got it right. If I didn't remember wrongly, the Japanese way of pronouncing Ryu sounds like the alphabets d+u or dew and not Ree-you :)

Ryu-san is an experienced senior stylist with 7 years of experience in Tokyo, Vancouver and now Singapore. This explains his fluency in English and I found out that he learnt the language through conversing with others and self learning, which is really impressive!
(Side note: There are no extra charges for choosing stylists at COVO!)

Like many, I wanted a reddish colour for Chinese New Year that will suit my skin tone and not be overly loud or bright to avoid bleaching. Ryu-san was fast in analysing and deciding on the final colour by personalizing the colour tone with the mixture of brown and red. He then went on to colour the bottom half of my hair, along the lines of a dip dye look. One reason I chose this style of colouring is to avoid having to colour again once the roots grow out. But I might be considering going for full colour now that I've seen how pretty and subtle this reddish tone is! More pictures below :)
As usual, I find that the session isn't complete without hair treatment and I strongly recommend their hair treatment to go with any of the hair services be it colouring, perm or just a simple hairdo session. Each wash is done with carbonated spring water and quality Japanese hair treatment products are used that will leave your tresses looking and feeling soft. Moreover, it is relaxing and you can catch a quick nap while you're at it ;)
After the colouring, cut and treatment, it was time to go but Ryu-san decided to do up my hair to complete the session. Throughout the session, Ryu-san kept the conversation going by telling me about his experiences and also answering some of my random questions, such as helping me translate what I was reading in the Japanese magazines! He is charming, chatty and easy-going; there is never a dull moment. In fact, he mentioned that he is currently looking for his other half so if there are any sexy ladies who are interested, be sure to look for him. I'm sure he would make you look even more stunning than before :)

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 …
