Recommended Optical Lens Shop

Hello readers! I was looking for a optical lens shop that would sell my monthly contact lens at a cheaper price because most of the shops sell at a higher price so i was sourcing around and i found this shop!
It is not a paid advertorial but i just wanted to help this cute chubby uncle to promote his shop because this is the cheapest lens that i found he is selling among all the other optical shop!
He is very friendly too.

I used to pay at my usual optical shop for my contact lens at $22 per pair because i had astigmatism so the price was generally higher than those who have normal degree,
so when they stopped selling, i had to find another shop to supply my contact lens, so most of them quote me $150/160 for 6 mth supply and at that time i was using the cheapest brand which was the baush and lomb which was first introduced to me when i first started using contact lens and i have been using this brand since secondary school. But quoting me $150-$160 per month would cost me about $25 per pair, so instead of finding cheaper lens i have to pay an extra few dollar more and if we are looking at long term usage, the cost difference and the location that i have to buy is not exactly near as well, some of the shops was quoting me $190 for 6 box which was crazy!
I refused to believe that i can't find a cheaper contact lens so i went to lots of different shops and finally i found this shop at yishun, it was quite random when i just walked in and ask them for the price, it only cost me $110 for 6 months!
So instead of paying the extra few dollar more, i managed to save a few dollar as i found a shop that sell $18 for a pair!
and for normal degree lens is only at $10 per pair! Thus i went to check my eyesight and the uncle was very friendly and they have lot of other contact lens in their shop and different brands which i asked for their enlarged lens, and its only $25 per pair for that.
So i decided to bought the enlarged lens to try as well!
so if anyone who is interested to know the place to get cheaper contact lens, this is the place you should go to!
till then.

Jieying & Junjie's birthday celebration!

Hello readers!
This was a post to celebrate both Jieying and Junjie birthday,
we was supposed to go for a picnic at pasir ris park but it has been raining for the past few days and they was wondering if it would rain when we was going for a picnic but i assured them it should be fine! But. it really did start raining and a heavily one somemore!
But we continued our usual plan just that it was in a shelter while thinking where to go next.
We bought this cuet standing dog balloon for jieying so she can walk the dog and halfway when it was raining so we had to run to the shelter,
we give her an option to choose her own birthday present and she choose a casio gold watch which looks nice on her!

And we forced her to take a photo with the dog.
she is getting prettier when i look back at the photos we took like few years ago,
back then she was wearing glasses and now she wear contact lens already!
As the rain don't seem to stop at all, so we decided to go bowling at Safra Tampines!
since there is a bus to go directly to safra from downtown east.
The bowling floor is so shiny and its so easy to hit strike! They did a good job in polishing the bowling lane.
Changed our shoes for our bowling session!
they had the soccer table and we play this too!
After that, we went to tampines interchange where they had a few shopping centre to have our dinner!
and we had nandos for dinner!
I love the food especially when you can choose the spicy level!
This was our ordered drinks.
And the food that we had ordered!
photos again while waiting for our food.
This was the first choice they had nandos so it was a wise choice to dine at nandos!

On another separate day, i booked a reservation for three at the merchant court, ellenbourough cafe because i had brought Michelle previously for her birthday dinner and i thought i can bring them here again since the food was quite nice!
Earlier, Jiayee told me they have some crab feast and i didn't take note until when we went there, there was alot of different variety of crabs cooked in different sauce such as chili crab, black pepper, salt baked crab, crab pisque, crab claw and so on.
This time round i didn't take any photos because it was pretty much the same, we was feeling so full after the buffet dinner and decided to take a walk from clarke quay to raffles places which makes us feeling so much better after that.
We bought a crumpler bag for JJ as his present!
We took a photo when we reached raffles place after the walk.

after that we took a rebound train so that we have seat in the train!

so here wishing a happy 20th birthday to two of my beloved friends, here wishing you all the best and stay in touch!
till then.

Staycation at Fairmont Hotel & Resort

Hello readers! I am here to update my recent staycation at Fairmont hotel and resort with JJ & JY.
It was a random idea for us to book the hotel for a staycation especially i have been working in this hotel everyday, looking at the rooms everyday. JY works in the same hotel as me but she has been working at the front desk so she don't really get a chance to see how the rooms looks like so we decided to stay one night since we are able to book it at the staff rate!

I guess the occupancy was not full on our day of check in and we were able to stay at the high floor.

While it looks really beautiful especially at night for this view, but i have been seeing it everyday whenever i am on night shift so it became the norm for me.

 There are two tower in this hotel, the north and south, so we were staying at the north tower.
North tower room are generally bigger but the reno could be outdated compared to the south tower.
 Complimentary chocolates for us when we check in to our room.

We have also requested for an extra bed so that JJ could sleep on the extra bed instead on the carpet.
As i was working on the morning shift, so they check in first before i went up to the room to find them. We headed out to Marina square for dinner in the evening and went to this Mr Curry restaurant.

After our dinner, we wanted to watch a movie, but there weren't any good ones so we decided to play pool! Everyone became busy after we graduated so it was rare that we could hang out during our poly days.

We decided to buy some snacks back to the hotel in case we were hungry in the middle of the night. JY was going for the SIA recruitment of cabin crew the next day, previously she was lacking self confidence as she feel that she might not be able to get in the strict selection process of the crews but i was encouraging her because i feel that everyone should try at least once before they will know if they are able to succeed. Even if you didn't manage to get in, at least you have tried. What is the worst scenario if you didn't get in? You don't get to become a cabin crew loh. But that's not the end of the world. If one is passionate about it, they will try over and over again until they succeed, because success doesn't come easy.

So, she decided to go for it. I help to do her makeup the next day too! We was chatting throughout the night and they was up by 6.30am, i told them t The next day, i was lazing in the bed and told them to go ahead for their preparation and breakfast but both of them was trying to get me out of the bed to go down for breakfast. Die die insist i must go down with them to have breakfast. Tsk. But it was so funny when JY was telling JJ that 'she will scold us later at Twitter for getting her to wake up and go for breakfast with us'

So, i did went down for breakfast with them afterall. 

After our breakfast, we went back and JY was preparing for her interview and Poon, and Jieying two other colleague came over to our room as they were staying in the hotel to prepare for the SIA recruitment day. I wanted to accompany her but since she has their company so i didn't go ahead with her. I was helping her to match what she can wear, her hairdo and bought her some eyelashes to enhance her makeup.

After the interview, she send me a text message that she has passed the first round!
Hopefully she get a chance to pass the remaining rounds!

Shall end this post for now.
Till then.

My 21st Birthday Party @Treehouse villa, PART 2

Hello readers! So here goes, my 21st birthday party celebration post part 2.
This purple banner was given to me by Kraven on the day of my party, i wanted a backdrop to take photos but i was lazy during all the preparation until Kraven was being totally random and called me when i was doing my hair at the salon one day and ask if i would like to get one as she can help me to do the banner which i was more than happy to say 'Yes i want!' So i send her a few favourite photos of myself before she get her staff to print it on the banner as her family run the printing business.
Thanks for giving this to me for free too!

As mentioned in my previous post, we checked in to Treehouse villa on friday and the party was on saturday, so mummy and olm woke up early morning to start preparing some of the foods required for the BBQ, my cousins came over to stay too and everyone was helping to blow all the balloons for the decor. Especially, Qianci, Elliott and his gf.

I was getting busy by afternoon as most of my friends was trying to check with me the exact location as they was reaching the place but couldn't find the exact location. 

 This was my guestbook for my friends to sign at the party
My first few guests was Michelle and her bf, Jeant, Zaiwei, Brant & Yong seng. It was still early before everyone turned up at the party, so Michelle and i went to the garden area to take some photos! Before that we took some polaroid shots photo to hang at one of the corner. 

My makeup was done by Kai. Thank god he managed to reached on time!

 Michelle's bf help to take photos for us as our photographer. Haha

 Some candid shots.

It was not long before i went back to our unit as my mum called me to inform me that the catering is here for the set up, I ordered for 30 pax as i was not sure the actual number of turn-outs as i was afraid most of my friends might not turned up so i thought 30 pax was a safe number since we had tons of BBQ foods as well. 
Buffet setup done!

I ordered Neo Garden catering as they was well known for their quality of the good. The actual turnout was higher than what i had expected, foods was running out fast when my guests start arriving, i didn't even had much time to eat because i was busy running around, checking on my friend and ensuring everyone don't feel too awkward during the party. As i had many different small clique of friends attending my party but there's only me.

I was feeling apologetic to Jean and Zaiwei as i couldn't entertain everyone during the party especially when all my friends came at different timing.

Sammie, Keeteng,Kraven,Karin and Jiayee attended my party.
they was so funny when i saw them standing outside the unit but they didn't enter because they was not sure if they got the correct unit as it was really very crowded at that time.

 Posing for a group photo!
