Getting Cheap Eyewear?

Looking at today's economic situation, we are often advised by the government to be thrifty in our spending. However, there are just certain necessities that we must have such as, eyewear. It’s quite difficult to keep the same pair of glasses for two years (unless we are wearing contact lens). Somewhat, it may get worn out, broken or even our eyes may need a different prescription of lenses.

It's really hard to get cheap eyewear these days.
We, as consumers are often charged at an over-priced pair of glasses from established shops. We do not really know that glasses are not that expensive.
But, seems like we could get our eyewear through online purchase, which is pretty common now. Most importantly, we are buying for a much cheaper and affordable price.

This article from Chicago Tribune, caught me into surprise that name-brand frames companies only license their names to a frame manufacturer. So, why are we paying for expensive eyewear? We might as well settle for our own favorite trendy pair of eyewear.

There is a website, where it offers convenient online shopping. Imagine eyeglasses price start from $8. To place an order, you need to have at least a prescription for corrective eyeglass lens and your pupillary distance. All we need is a credit card or a debit card and we could make online purchase through their user-friendly website.

Isn't that simple and easy?

My father's friend owns an optical chain... and he is super rich. And my mother used to get huge discounts on the price tag. I guess you can guess how much ppl actually earn and why some things are so expensive!!!

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…
