Favourite Music #8: The Heirs

The drama has ended few weeks ago and sorry for the delay!! Maybe no one is waiting for this post but it's always good to list those songs that I love to preserve my memories after watching this drama~ ^^



창민 (2AM) - Moment



Lena Park - 마음으로만 (Only With My Heart)


박장현 & 박현규 - Love is...


As expected, this drama with dazzling actors and actress is a feast for us viewers while the drama unfold its storyline. Even as a lady myself, I'm really impressed with the beauty of Park Shin Hye (acted as Cha Eun Sang; third left! Not forget to mention about Kim Ji Won (acted as Rachel; first right) and Krystal (acted as Lee Bo-Na; second right )! Another character that might be forgotten as she doesn't appear a lot nor in the poster: Im Joo-Eun (acted as Jeon Hyun-Joo). All the flawless faces! *____*

And the OSTs for this drama are really great! It perfectly portrayed the chemistry between Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang. It is difficult for them to get together because of the strong objection from Tan's father. Not a bad drama if you are a fans of Lee Minho and Park Shin Hye! However fairy tales.... We can only get them in our dreams. :<

The Heirs
"He Who Wishes To Wear the Crown, Endure Its Weight"

The weight of the crown can't be underestimated. There's always exist a dilemma situation in everyone's life despite how glamorous their life are, that you may thought. The heirs in the drama, they have their own difficulties and wish to get out of the current situation. But they couldn't do anything, they can't really live the life they want.

[Spoiler] In the end, Kim Won couldn't get married with the girl he loves, Hyun-Joo just because he wants to take over his father's company. How many person can bear with this? Separate with the one you love and live your life with regrets until you die?

Hope you enjoy this drama! It makes me realised that every decision you make now will affect the following path... And it goes on. So live your life with no regrets! :)

Shop for Your Perfect Eye-Look with MrLens!

During younger days, I was curious why there isn't any ladies (those who are in their 20s) wear spectacles. I thought that their eyesight were so perfect and no doubt, I feel shame because I has been wearing glasses for years since primary school.

Near to the end of my secondary school days, I finally knew the existence of contact lens. But I wasn't encouraged to wear it as it wouldn't help on reducing the power of my short-sightedness. And yes!! I started my faithful journey with contact lens after I finished my national service. Since then, I can't really leave home without it. I was (and still am) feeling grateful for this marvellous invention! Now that I'm older, lasik surgery has appeared in my brain dictionary and I would opt to go for that too. 

Wearing contact lens too frequently doesn't do any good to the skin around our eyes. Constant stretching of the delicate and thin eye area in inserting and removing contact lens can cause eye wrinkles. In other words, premature aging! But for the sake of beauty, I still can't resist to abandon them. :<

Since contact lens has become a part of me, it really frustrates me sometimes when I need to go to optic shop to buy them. As usual, I will be asked to wait for their call to collect them. That means I need to make 2 trips before I can get the contact lens. Not to mention that sometimes I forgotten to drop by the shop when I go out. Suddenly thought about it when I reach home after a long day but I'm lazy to leave the house again. And I need to take note of the operation hours of the optic shop as well! :O

Well, technology is so advanced now that we can even shop online! Best news ever for someone like me who prefer to stay at home. 

When it comes to purchase contact lens, here is an option; 


MrLens is the largest online contact lens reseller in Switzerland and major parts of Europe, going global and they are now available in Asia too! You can get contact lens and glasses from their website with affordable price. 

It's very simple to place your order and get them to be delivered to your place!

You can register for an account if you doesn't have one.


It is very thoughtful of them to provide a column for you to fill in the details of your working company!


After registration, you can start to hunt for your favourite contact lens!


Remember to specifically select the power and the color you want.
For my case, I have to choose two boxes with the same type of contact lens since the power of each side on my eyes are different.


Prepare to checkout after you had made your selections! It is very important to double confirm the details of items that you want to buy before you opt to checkout from the shopping cart.


Check your shipping address and you are given a chance here to amend it if you wish too!
Free shipping service is available for certain Klang Valley areas.


Select your payment options as well.


Lastly, you'll be led to check:
  • Billing address
  • Delivery address
  • Payment method
  • Shipping Method
  • Products that you chose
  • Total amount that you need to pay

Remember to tick the 2 options about T&C before you can confirm your order! And you're done with the ordering process.

Now you can wait happily without worries for your contact lens to come to you! ^^

***

Frankly speaking, I am quite impressed with the delivery service. I received my parcel around 3 days after I ordered from them! Emails was sent to me to inform the shipping progress without the need to bug them. Wouldn't you feel happy when the company does the tracking work for you? :)

Make your purchase from MrLens now!

Competitive, Fast & Reliable!

My New Love!

Finally some updates about myself. The guilt of not blogging that frequent... tsktsktsk
Sometimes I do want to talk about myself in this space so that it's not all about campaigns/advertorials/sponsorships. My blog needs to have my own character inside right???

If you had noticed my instagram posts, you'll definitely know that I bought a bag recently!
It's my first branded bag which is from Hush Puppies and I really loveeeee it! Been searching for the ideal one for a long time and actually my first choice is a MBMJ. But come to think of it, for a student like me, you should get something that match with your status too. So I pause the thought of getting a MBMJ bag and find something else that would suit my taste.

Didn't take specific photos of it, so here are some #ootd on the other days! Really love this shade of blue and it can easily match with my outfits! ^^


Getting a bag that is expensive takes me quite a long time to make the decision. I don't want to buy so many bags which I will eventually abandon them in my cabinet. After all, I always want to get a bag that can show my personality and enhance my look when I'm going out. And now I'm old enough to buy a good quality handbag like what my mum did lol. But I definitely can't compare to her level. Mummy is forever rich!!! T____T

Can't wait for Christmas and New Year! Might be doing a post about resolutions? I know this is very typical and everyone will do a list of it every new year but never fulfil it..... But I guess I at least achieved some of it that I had set in the beginning of year 2013?

And the end of December 2013 means I'm going back to my uni life! It's my final year and I have mixed feelings of it. Can't wait to get rid of the-life-of-a-poor-student but I want more freedom which I doubt I will have it when I'm officially a working adult.

Bought some skincare products from Hishop and it had safely reached my place this afternoon! So happy to receive it and can't wait to try all of them! Note that I bought them on my own. I will do some product reviews if I find it worth to share. ^^ Feels so good when I know I'm at the right track to improve my complexion!

Changed my blog header! What do you think? :) Taking a good picture is definitely not easy. Many aspects that need to be taken care of. Now I know becoming a model is hard and it requires a lot of skills. Not to forget about the photographer too.

That's all for today! Hope I didn't make you bored after reading my words.



Thank you for reading! Feel free to leave a comment and I would love to hear from you! x
