last home cooked meal for about a week… packing and heading to Bali late tomorrow night! can’t wait!
New frame and old frame… both with new Essilor Crizal lenses. Love the glossy black with the white. It’s a Chinese brand and only weighs 7 grams! Super light and comfy and supposed to be pretty indestructible too…
Today, we went to the eye glasses market to get new glasses…. Went to the place recommended by our friends and it’s amazing how cheap it is compared to the us and all that insurance inflated prices… I got a pair of really well made trendy titanium frame with nice thin top of the line varilux lenses for total of about $150! The wife went with varilux transition lenses and that bumped hers to about $225. These would have cost us about $600 to $800 before deductible back home. Granted, the frames were made in china…. But, really…. What isn’t made in china right?!?! Oh, also… This store seems higher end as walking around the market, some of the super cheap frames were like equivalent of $2.50 and a set with cheap thick regular lenses would run like $15. Will post some pics once we get them in 3 days.
Haven’t posted in a while, but recently, we went to HK for a short break. We stayed 2 nights first in the new Auberge Discovery Bay hotel. Discovery Bay is on Lantau Island and is a planned development which doesn’t allow cars on the premises. There are some nice restaurants and hiking is readily available. Although, we did not get to hike at all due to the constant downpours! Another convenience is that it is close to HK Disneyland. So, we set out on a rainy Friday to tour the park and fulfill my wife’s desire to shop for HK specific Pooh souvenirs. Hahahaha!!! Yes, she is a big big Pooh fan. Anyways, the rain made the park very manageable as the crowd was small. We didn’t have to wait more than 15 minutes for any ride. What was the busiest ride??? Of course, the Pooh Corner ride!
Getting ready to board our flight to Tokyo en-route back home! Yay!
It’s been a while since I posted photos… sorry about that. I’ve been a little busy,but really just a little lazy. Promise to do better especially with a bevy of trips coming up. So, a little while ago, I decided to make mini-apple pies for the wife to bring to work…. after she had one, she decided that we should keep all of them for snacking at home! Lol.
Holy crap…. Ran for 25 minutes, then took two classes in a row at the gym and got my ass kicked! So tired…
Moo…. Feel like a cow…. Wife is away for business for 1 night and so I’m eating healthy, which equates to chowing down on like 2 lbs of leafy veggies, lol.
On Saturday, the Charity group (Hopeful Hearts) that I joined held a New Year’s Party (in between western New Years and the upcoming Chinese New Years) to generate donations for our cause. It was a lot of much fun and it was great to work with fellow volunteers as well as meet so many people that enjoyed the event. One of the highlights of the party was a Strawberry Cake (desserts) competition and there were over 20 entrants. Just wanted to put a few shots of the super delicious looking desserts that I took!
