Solution Dilemma

I first started wearing contact lens in 1997. It was an awfully painful experience as I tried on the 1 month disposable trial pack (I don't remember the brand). I started off with 4 hours and an increase of 1 hour after a day. If I do not have a chance to wear them on the next day, the cycle deducts an hour back. Cycle is completed after wearing a full 8 hours (I think). I used to remember that I was adviced by the Optometrist to only wear a maximum of 8 hours. Nowadays, i wear up to 12 hours (and sometimes even more!! 16 hours??!).
My first experience was so painful as I felt like a needle or sand stuck in my eyes forever. I remembered walking along BJ complex with my both painful eyes.

I stopped wearing after a month and threw the lens away.

Not long after that, I bought myself a pair of permanent lens. Lens care was troublesome as I use the solution separately with saline. I got to budget myself since then I was still a student. Every month, I was very hardworking to dissolve and clean the lens with the tables. I was using optifree then (i remembered the green solution).

I remembered there was an incident where I thought I have put my lens in the case but the fact that the lens dropped in the kitchen sink! Darn. The lens were exposed without any solution for the whole night. The next day, I even blamed my friend for stealing my contacts! Later, I found out that it was left unattended at the sinK!!! GEe.... I had to salvage that poor little thingy. I quickly rest them in the case the solution. We headed to church and I left it in the shop for MAJOR WASH!

When I begin to work, I started wearing B&L sequence monthly disposables.

I felt it was cleaner then. Eyes get dry very quickly and the lens had a tendency to come out.
Opted for Surevue then Acuvue2.................. :D
Since disposables, I started using AMO Complete and alternatedly B&L renu.
But with the recall products from Complete and Renu, I lost confident.
I didnt' try out the new packaging of Renu which claimed to be even better!

Friends suggested Optifree Express now. I searched on the websites and came across REplenish?

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
