Part One

Not too long ago (08th jan 2011), malaya optical invited us, the MHB girls (me, erica, sarah, ashley, mei sze, brigette, cai jin, chammaine), tim and andy to attend their event.. upon reaching there, we were told that amber chia just left..

Anyway, it was quite crowded that day.. photographers were everywhere.. customers checking out the latest glasses.. we were all sat on a couch and were given a short talk by mr ryan ho..

Who is ryan ho as you might ask.. well, he is well known as Malaysia's 1st Professional Eye Wear Stylist and Designer.. many of his clients includes miss Malaysia, celebrities, royalty, politicians and corporate figures who comes to seek his styling, as quite a number of them calls him the Plastic Surgeon without the scalpel.. he has also been featured in many top magazine and newspaper such as The Sun, mStar, FHM, Malaysian Business Week, Malaysian Tatler, Minguan Malaysia, August Man, Malaysian SME and many more..

So yea, we were in good hands :D plus we got our vouchers!!

Part Two

I've a history with malaya optical.. well, malaya optical was established in 1957 and i got my first pair of glasses from them when i was in primary 1.. which means in 1988.. yes, now you know my age =.=

Anyway, i still remember how my glasses looks like.. it was in pink! hahaha.. it wasn't the plastic type but it was metal frame.. and now, after 23 years.. i'm back to malaya optical once again! :D

I used to wear prescription glasses til i was 18 years old.. and then i switched to contact lenses when i was in college.. oh well, you know.. i didn't want to look geeky in college :P

I've been going to an ophthalmologist ever since i was in high school.. and i was told that i had to wait til i was 21 to get the LASIK done.. finally when i was 21, i did it.. for the past 9 years, my vision was almost 100% until now.........

I did the free eye test at malaya optical and i was told that i have slight power on each eye.. sigh~ BUT the good news is, i still DO NOT need to wear glasses! wheeeee~

Besides checking on my power, the optometrist used the non Contact tonometer to screen for asymptomatic eye disease Glaucoma.. and also Fundus Camera is used for screening for diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration and hypertensive retinopathy..

Alas, i was told that everything is good.. phew!

Now, i can choose my sunglasses!! yippie!!

Altho there's a W I D E range of glasses for us, customers to choose from, it didn't take me long to finally choose one ;) coz with the help of a sweet sweet girl who's working with malaya optical, i was able to make up my mind fast :P

Here are some pictures of me with my sunnies!

I chose a couple of glasses and just eliminating it one by one

Finally i chose the one from coach and i happily used the voucher i was given :D

While waiting for them to issue me a receipt and to pack my sunglasses, took a few shots of the outlet and also of myself! hehehe...

I was bbm-ing mei sze to tell her that i finally got my sunglasses

Anyway, now i know why my family chose to bring me to malaya optical for my 1st pair of glasses.. it's coz malaya optical is a one stop solution for eye wear, eye care, lifestyle and emotional needs.. it's 'The Eye Experience Boutique'

So, new year has come and go.. how was your new year's eve? for me, i was at home sleeping.. believe it or not.. haha!

Anyway, i've started my gym regime yesterday (4th jan).. nothing much.. just slowly building up my motivation to exercise.. i'm heading to the gym again after work.. this time for a dance class ;) i've always loathe to go to the gym and i'll always find excuses NOT to go.. but this gym is just right above my office.. so i don't have to drive out, stuck in the jam and find parking just to exercise.. there's NO excuse this time :P furthermore, i want to fit in my new herve leger nicely.. without any fat bulging out.. haha..

My resolutions for this year is to lose some weight and get a better paying job (to support my shopping addiction for finer things in life) :P.. what's yours?
