Sample Store - Shoppers’ Paradise @ Waterway Point

Sample Store held an event last weekend over at Waterway Point. One of their yearly affairs to connect us, consumers, to various brands and the best time to stock up on the products! I was glad to be invited to the event and given a chance to learn more about Beauty Keeper and their mission held privately in Waterway Point's newest party room.

Before I go in-depth on Beauty Keeper, let's take some time to admire the latest addition to Waterway Point: Party Room. A place that is great for baby showers or a family gathering with its cheery and bright interior that complements their garden playground that's on the same floor. It may be a little difficult to locate if it's your first time there, just look out for Gelare and it's right next to it.

Back to Beauty Keeper, it may sound foreign to some of you but it is an up and coming beauty site for Taiwan beauty products that I think all beauty fans or even those new to beauty products should look out for. Beauty Keeper is a platform that offers exclusively handpicked premium brands from Taiwan at reasonable prices. It allows consumers who have little or no access to Taiwan's beauty trends a special insight to the best of what their beauty products have to offer. 
Gone are the times how some of us many have to struggle with the understanding of product efficacies in Chinese or having to go through friends to learn or order a certain product from Taiwan. Plus, Beauty Keeper recently started a new airport drop off service which I feel will benefit many, not only those who are residing in Singapore but also worldwide as long as you are planning to visit Taiwan.

The newest airport drop off service is whereby you place orders of the products you want through Beauty Keeper's site before going on your trip to Taiwan. You can save time on sourcing for products, enjoy the best of what Taiwan has to offer and then collect your parcel on the last day of your trip in the airport. It's that simple!
Thanks to Beauty Keeper, I have lots of goodies that I can't wait to try and share! :)
I will have the reviews up in a separate post so as to accommodate more detailed product description and pictures!  

After the talk, I had the opportunity to explore the rest of the event space and I'm so proud of these local brands which were established in recent years. Shall share more of their products in individual blog posts in the next couple of days~

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 …
