I first started wearing glasses at the age of 10, before being introduced to soft contact lenses when I was 13. However, they’ve always been uncomfortably dry, especially during windy days.
At 16, I found out about Ortho-K lenses, which are gas-permeable hard lenses worn every night to reshape the cornea for a day. Although I won’t have to wear glasses or lenses, it came at quite a cost: $1000 for the first consultation, and $500 per subsequent single lens which had to be changed every 3 to 4 years.
It was only after last year, when I accidentally torn my right cornea and was hospitalised for 4 days with scarring, that I finally decided all these temporary solutions available in the market – glasses, soft and hard contact lenses – weren’t good enough!
Imagine waking up with perfectly clear vision, anywhere in the world and at any time of the day! No more fussing to remember to take out your contact lenses when you get home on late nights, carry spare contact lens cases, or buy travel-friendly bottles of eye solution when flying abroad. I calculated the cost spent on constantly purchasing or changing your glasses and contact lenses, and it easily added up to thousands of dollars in a few years.
No wonder everyone claims lasik to be one of their best decisions ever!

Modern + minimal = #housegoals
I’ve actually considered moving to Scandinavia because of one thing – their interior decor. Not kidding. Their white x beige combo and crisp-edged furniture are enough to make me spam like everything and keep them tabbed for when I’m able to afford my own place.
However, that was before I discovered Singapore-founded Hip Van – an online furniture and decor store offering chic, quality designs at a fair price. Think marble tables, concrete lamps and even vintage table flip clocks – this place is your Pinterest feed in real life.
Perhaps I won’t have to move after all!
I didn’t grow up watching musicals.
My very experience was Les Miserables on Broadway, NY at 21. Since then, I’ve checked quite a few off my list. But growing up, there were always a certain few on constant rewind to rewatch on VCR tapes (remember those?) – Annie, iconically remembered as it’s my mother’s name, was one of my favourites.
So naturally, I was over the moon when Elizabeth and I were invited to attend the Gala night of Annie The Musical at Marina Bay Sands, alongside a few local celebs.

Believing that everyone expresses their creativity in different ways, she aims to take risks in her art – to experiment and just have fun. Her work captures personal memories within abstract pieces from topography series, geometric shapes to the deconstructing of a walkie-talkie in some cases.
