Something about sunglasses...

I know some friends who can't live without sunglasses. They might have this habits and reasons behind, but to me, I seldom wear one because I have my spec on most of the time. However, I still keep one or two in the car in case I really need them. But I can still live/drive without them.

While browsing through Yahoo homepage this morning, I came accross this interesting topic and I'd like to share with all of you!
The topic is 'Are designer sunglasses worth the price?'

Here's some contents from the article:-

1. Most sunglasses are made by the same company
Whether you prefer Bulgari, D&G or Salvatore Ferragamo, they're all from the same company! So why bother which one to choose? :D

2. Those expensive sunglasses may not be any better for your eyes, either.
Three-hundred dollar sunglasses don't do anything better than $100 sunglasses, except maybe look better and have a brand name associated with them. Expert notes that making lenses that offer protection against harmful ultra-violet rays "isn't very expensive technology".
Unless you're particular about the branding, otherwise, you can consider to buy one from the night market :P

3. An inexpensive pair of sunglasses from the pharmacy isn't the worst thing in the world.
The main reason people wear sunglasses is to block out (regular) white light. And from that point of view, cheaper glasses work pretty well too, and they will probably block most UV rays, even if not all of them.
Another good reason to support 'You dont necessarily need an expensive branded sunglasses'.

4. Those fancy glasses are really costing you a lot more than you realize.
If you make your shades last for many years, that would be one thing. But who does that? The people who want designer items want the latest fashion each year. And then there are the pairs that get lost, scratched at the beach or being sat on.
Honestly, if I break my RM20 sunglasses, it won't be as heartache as breaking a RM200 sunglasses, you get what I mean?

Wearing a RM19.90 sunglasses from Vincci, this is me during the visit to Spain back in 2008

new white frame sunnies I bought during the Hatyai trip, it's about 200TB if I'm not mistaken :D (I can summarise, the most expensive sunglass I've ever bought is no more than RM30 :P)

and this one is the latest, Gucci inspired muahaha :D Got it at Mid Valley KL for only RM25.

Realised something in common? most sunnies I bought is rectangular in shape, this is because rectangular sunglass looks better for me as I have round face.
What about you? Do you believe in cheaper sunglasses? What kinda shape you like?
Til then, enjoy your weekend!


  1. yeah...sunglasses very important to me esp taking care of my eye sight when driving under hot sun...

  2. Me too, not brand conscious. I think mine costs below RM30.;P

  3. Hi Hayley, interesting post. Some sunglasses make a woman look exciting, sexy even...and some? Yeeeech!
    As well pay $$$$ for a designer name brand, 3 months later a new model comes out.

    I have been wearing Rayban aviators past 45 years, both normal one as well sunglasses....
    And only last week my wife decided to get one too...Rayban aviators sunglasses....the one with gold rims.

    And she's giggling that all her friends complimenting she looking exceptionally glamourous......
    Rayban Aviators has never gone out of style since 1943. And today, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, JLo, etc etc...practically all the Hollywood actors, actresses wears them one time or another.

    My wife now saying she's happy, no need keep up fashions, as this will be fashionable next 100 years.

    By the wa, you look great in yours.
    Have a pleasant weekend, stay gorgeous, Lee.

  4. Vialentino, I agree that sunglasses is useful especially driving under the bright sunny day!

    Inspired Momx1, haha high 5! :D

    Lee, well I know Rayban is a well known brand, so I think the quality is of certain standard too! Glad that you and your wife found a suit one!

    Have a great day everyone!

  5. lolx...for me, sunglasses is use for hide my ugly eye =S

  6. Mei.I can't live without my sunglasses while i'm driving and traveling. I prefer comfortable wearing and my eyes are protected. If i were to buy cheap one, i will intend to buy more. Hahaha. So i rather bought a better one, to cut down my spending. I owned 2 from Charles&Keith n Guess which has been with me for more than 3yrs now.

  7. Yeah, gimme 5! I love sunglasses and I love them cheap. I hardly drive and most of the time I prefer to stay indoor. Hence a branded and expensive sunglasses is kinda not worth for me to invest. I opt for cheap sunglasses because I get bored of them fast and the new model is always in the market after a few months. Agree?

  8. Same here, I have only2 sunglasses, both are cheap, one from Nose and one from Bonita. I seldom wear them also, because I do not want to hide my sexy eyes, boohoo!

  9. Sherley, ugly eyes? Do you have?? =_=

    Angeline, perhaps you already get used to it... But to me, I'd buy a cheaper one, unless my hubby sponsor me la, muahaha :D

    Yvonne, yea agree! If we buy a cheaper one, we can at least buy a few of different styles for mix and match! That's what I thought...

    Yan, haha true true! Should let people see your sexy eyes! ^^

  10. i seldom wear do not invest in sunglasses...i only got 2 sunglasses, one is the normal one n the other one is those clip on type...n u know wat...the normal one i free,present by my come to think of it, i only bought the clip on one which cost only RM26...

  11. Agree. I have 2 sunglasses only, one for running n one for driving. No need expensive one lah

  12. Vinnie, haha I know, read your blog post on sunglasses too! The clip one really cute and convenient!

    Eugene, haha yay! Seems like majority prefer cheaper one ;)

  13. wow, you have a lot of sunglasses and you look good in them. i only have one now :D

    hmm...i won't pay more than rm500 for a sunglasses ;) unfortunately, i can't wear sunglasses which are not sold at the optical stores. i don't know why i get dizzy after wearing them. wish i could just wear any type of sunglasses.

  14. Barbara, thanks ;)

    Oh I know, I heard from some people around me, that they can't simply wear any sunglasses... I'm not sure is it the mind trick or...?
    But RM500 for a sunglasses is too much for me, lol.. I could actually buy a very branded one with that :)

  15. I also think big sunglasses suit me best because of my big fat face!
    I only buy cheap ones too! Mine is also from Vincci! :p

  16. Shirlexia, yaya, Vincci sunglasses are trendy and the price is reasonable too!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
