Mini Getaway Part 1 | Lloyd's Inn

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Hello beautiful readers! 
I had finally get to slot some time out to edit my mini getaway pictures and share my experience of walking around in Singapore with you guys :D
I know Singapore isn't exactly very far away from home, 
it is sort of a big deal for me as it is my first trip with Mal Mal haha.

Please do not mind our steam faces, 
we were sleeping all the way on our flight, because we couldn't get used to waking up at 7am in the morning.
 Once we reach Singapore, 
we took the mrt to Somerset which is where our Inn is located.

today's blog post will mainly be focusing on the inn we stayed in, 
which is Lloyd's Inn.
it is such a surreal experience, so I gotta separate it in a different blog post ! 

They provide cereal magazine in the lobby for their guests, 
and also Diptique candles in the lobby!

Bottled water also too pretty lor please. 

A very open concept and minimalist design which is also the way I prefer it to be. 

The room that we chose was The Business, 
though they have a variety of amazing rooms, however, I preferred this one, 
you guys will understand as I explain later on :p

It has an outdoor shower which I find special, 
and also not to mention pretty damn cool. 

The room that we chose is actually a duplex, 
so our bedroom is upstairs, and our desk area and shower are all downstairs.

How can this be not pretty you tell meeeee
the view is crazy nice!

its tooooo surreal dude.


*oh, how can anybody not love this place*
look at the pic on top I fell in love with this placeeeee
One main reason why I chose this place is because it doesn't have the typical hotel layout, 
no shit lah its an inn that why, 
however, I love trying new things and going new places, 
therefore this place is different enough for me to choose.
Mainly because I am obsessed with all these artsy fartsy minimalist design places ;)

Thank you love, 
for accompanying me throughout this trip. 
Many more trips to come yes? :)

Stay tuned my upcoming posts for our explore trip in Singapore!

Urban Coffee @ Urban Republic

Saturday, February 14, 2015

Hello people of the internet, 
I know I had been MIA for a while as I was a little busy with college and several events, 
however, I am back to share a new chilling place with you guys ! 
A new café by Urban Republic, named Urban Coffee.

They serve a variety of coffees with a very reasonable price as well !

The purpose of setting up this café in Urban republic is to let their customer relax and chill there with their devices. 
Plus, their entire interior is really comfy and cozy not too noisy as it is no where near the outdoor area. 

Me & malcolm tried their mocha and café latte, 
also a slice of tiramisu cake! 

My favourite so far is the mocha !

Focus Optometry

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Hello peeepo!
I’n finally back from my mini getaway to singapore, 
and I’m here to share my experience in Focus Optometry last sunday :D
The people were all so friendly there! they welcome us with some refreshments and snacks.

I was blessed to have my beloved girlfriends there to accompany me and choose some glasses frames to make my new glasses! 

So first off, we were welcome and introduced by Kwen, 
he explained to us briefly about the eye treatments available in Focus Optometry, 
as well as letting us test try the machines ourselves! 
We tried the Corneal Compensated tonometry machine first, 
it is a machine to measure IOP or eye pressure. 
This tonometry is different from the usual once as it takes into account for measurements error induced by corneal biomechanics, it produce a more accurate result! 

We were told that a pressure will be splashed into our eyes, 
and yes, it literally splashed air into my eye but it doesn’t hurt though HAHA
we were all terrified while observing the others taking turns to try out, however, 
it wasn’t as scary as we thought it would be.

Next, we headed to the back part of the optic centre to test the Slit Lamp Examiniation, 
this treatment is special in the sense that even if we’re wearing contact lens, they’ll still be able to check whether our lens is suitable for our eye ball shape, 
& apparently mine is perfectly fine for me :D
This treatment can also check if we have any diseases like cataract, corneal problems, eyelid problem etc.

For the fun part of my experience in Focus Optometry, 
I got to try out the 3D Computer Vision Therapy which helps to improve visual acuity, motor and sensory fusion for a better stereopsis. 
Good strereopsis includes safe driving, shaking hand with people or pouring water into thermal flasks, in other words, a more stabilized vision and actions. 

3D computer vergence therapy is way more effective than the pen to nose push up exercise in treating Convergence Insufficiency ( inability of eyes to turn while reading or working )

Apart from all the technical explanations, 
it is a fun way for us to release our eye strain as well! 
during the therapy, there are several different color backgrounds to let us improve our visionary focus, and of course for the fun of it, it releases our stress as well. 

Last but not least, we experienced the Fundus Photography treatment which is able to let the optometrist to access the retina and look for any abnormality such as swelling, or bleeding of the vessels in our retina. This treatment allows optometrist to accurately diagnose any retinal diseases like age related macular degeneration or diabetic retionopathy. 
Besides that, it is also able to check if we have Cataract problems, 
which is the clouding of ens in the eye that affects vision, 
most cataracts are related to aging. However, it does not spread from one eye to another. 

Here’s my result of the Fundus Photography, 
which is a normal looking pair of eyes without any problem

Overall, I enjoyed my day in Focus Optometry as all of their eye therapy allows me to learn more about my eyes !
I even chose a frame and make my new glasses from there, 
what do you guys think about my new pair of glasses?

Thankyouu Focus Optometry for this wonderful experience!
