Presbyopia Contact Lenses for Clearer Eyesight!

Being short-sighted, I have to always put on my spectacles or contact lenses in order to see things that is of a near distance away. Otherwise, I am as blind as a bat, and I feel very helpless without them. And so, funny or silly as it may sound, but I used to feel envious of my parents or older relatives who have prebyopia, or more often known as Lao Hua Yan (老花眼). This is because they are able to see things that are afar, which is something that I yearn.

Presbyopia, or more commonly known as "老花眼", was a term I learnt when my parents started to wear glasses in their 40s. I was puzzled back then, as I have always known them for having perfect eyesight. That was when they explained that they have presbyopia - A natural condition (comes with age) where a person gets blurry vision when he or she is looking at nearby objects, but clear vision when seeing anything that is far away. It is the complete opposite of myopia, or short-sightedness.

As much as my parents know that they require to wear the prescription glasses for their farisightedness, they usually wear it only when they need to read at work, or when reading the papers and surfing the internet and Facebook on their laptops and smartphones at home. Otherwise, they do not wear it as they find it a hassle to bring it out when they are out.

So what happens if they are out in a restaurant and need to read the menu? Or when they are using their phones? They do what usually people with far-sightedness do --- Hold the menu at an arm's length! This is how you usually spot people with 老花眼 right? Haha! :p

If your parents or even yourself are facing this problem, where wearing spectacles just for presbyopia is not a habit, or think that one look better without glasses, read on for there is a SOLUTION!

The 'Highlights' of My Life

During my latest hair session with Salon De Choix, I did a color touch-up for my base color, and I did highlighting! But the main thing that I want to HIGHLIGHT is that the end of October marked the 2nd anniversary of my partnership with Salon De Choix.

It has been two wonderful years with Salon De Choix so far. The management and staff have always been very professional and approachable. My hair has been well taken care of during this period of time, and I am glad that many of my readers have apparently utilized and enjoyed the 15% discount (for all hair services) whenever they have booked an appointment and quoted my name 'Feliza'. I do feel happy whenever I received feedbacks from my readers who went to get their hair done at Salon De Choix. So far, I heard nothing but praises and compliments!

Let me share with you a story: Someone who heard of Salon De Choix from my blog, dropped by to get a hair cut by Chester. Apparently, he told Chester that the salon (a famous salon chain, mind you) and stylist which he has been going for the past years simply failed to get the hair style which he wants, no matter how he tells them each time. Yet Chester managed to do just so during the first appointment. And since then, he has been coming back to Salon De Choix. It made me happy to know that I bring new clients and businesses for them as well!

Salon De Choix is one sponsor whom I really enjoyed working with. And boy I was glad that we have signed another term contract! This is great news for me, and for all of you as well.... As you get to continue enjoying the 15% discount! And with the approaching Christmas and the New Year season, it is TIME to book your appointment with them!!!!

With regards to my most recent visit to the salon, Chester and I discussed during the consultation sessionm and finalised to use 'Light Beige Blonde' from the MajiBlond range as my highlight color. As my hair has become rather dry from all the beach and sea activities that I was doing in October, he advised not to do a full base color job, but just a touch-up of my roots.

Don't judge me... 
This heap of hay hair was not washed for two days hahaha!
And so I had my hair tied into a bun and went to the salon.
And the wind and sea water was very unkind to me during my beach holidays in Makassar and Cebu. Major sad, but I enjoyed myself. Did you see my vacation pictures on my Instagram?? Check it out, okay? >>>  @felizaong

After the coloring for my hightlights were done, we did the base color touch-up.
Played the waiting game to have the colors to set in, before washing it off.
Of course, the awesome hair wash session while lying down on the massage chairs.
It's heavenly! It's relaxing! It's my favorite moment! :p

Next, is the hair treatment.

The hair treatment type used during this session is for hair that has just been colored. This helps to maintain the color as well as to prevent it from fading off that soon. The waiting game was once again played and finally it was time for the washoff.

My hair felt so smooth and luscious after the hair treatment. It looks really healthy despite that a light color was used for the highlights. Chester then did a quick hair trim for me, snipping off split ends, as well as to give my hair a nice shape and layers. I appreciate him being so thoughtful in the sense that he have put in effort to think and decide on the areas to be highlighted or not. The right selection of hair portion for highlighting makes a huge difference in giving the hair the ultimate outlook. You will get what I mean when you see the photos as per below. 

It has been two great years with Salon De Choix, and I look forward to many months with them! ;)

Italy 2014 Part 2: To Italy, with Singapore Airlines

If you have read my previous blog post, you would already know that I flew to Rome and toured Italy all by myself. If you have not, click [HERE] to read! :)

Upon arriving at Singapore Changi Airport slightly before midnight, I checked in my large-sized baggage, while bringing onboard my cabin luggage and trusty LV travel sling bag. I loved how Thy Black Beauty's black PU Leather jacket (c/o KissJane) kept me looking chic while keeping me warm during the 13-hours flight! And yes, this is me without makeup.

Excitement filled me as I boarded the plane, the insatiable feeling of flying solo was devouring me (in a good way), every second while waiting for the plane to depart. I flew with Singapore Airlines for this trip to Italy. Usually, I do take SQ flights for business trips, and those were solo trips as well. However, this trip was different, being alone for more than 10 days in a foreign land. Furthermore, I could not imagine myself not talking much, or to anyone for 13 hours! Or would I be? ;)

This is the Business class section of the aircraft.

Lights out... Time to snooze!

I always have a good experience on all of my SQ flights. The meal services and the constant drink+snack sessions were fantastic. There is no way that one will ever be hungry on a SQ flight. I had a chit-chatting session with the crew during the lull period! Thanks to them for keeping me company, else I would have been so bored from having no one to talk to! Haha!

Throughout the long flight, I had a movie marathon and watched three movies at one go, before I finally called it a night and took a short nap. Waking up slightly before the plane was bound to land, I freshened up in the lavatory by doing my facial routine and then makeup. So there you go, that was how I spent my 13-hours onboard!

Prior to landing, my usual routine...
 Cleanse my face and apply light makeup!

There you go! With foundation and eyebrowns drawn!

And soon, it was time for landing! Roma, oh Roma!!
