My recent eye-check has confirmed my suspicions that my eyesight has gone for the worse. Not surprising at all. Facing the laptop screen 14 hours a day is an evil. Time to start on my daily regime on the Eye Relax machine, which Dad bought 4-5 years ago at $520 thereabout. The initial enthusiasm in using the machine twice a day 10 mins per use paid off- there was a tangible improvement to my eyesight (as evident from eye-checks, each eye went down by 50-100 degrees), and my eyes felt less strained. The Eye Relax machine is suitable for both the short and long sighted. While it helps to improve your eyesight and relaxes your eyes after an eye-straining day, it does not totally correct your vision (for that, you still have to go for LASIK). For those who are keen on the product, there is an improved version called Eye Relax 2 in the market.

I shall put that fixed asset into good use! Get back to you guys on the results when I see improvements!



My life feels like a mess. It’s a vicious chain reaction- my physical environment is in a mess, which affects the state of my mind, which in turn affects the way I deal with various aspects of my life. Always start with the root of all mess- first thing in the morning, I will tidy my table, file my notes, and discard all unnecessary items. Second thing, I will fully utilize my organizer- plan and execute. With discipline, everything else should fall nicely into place.

Four Seasons Durian Treats

1. Durian crepe ($3.50)- generous and creamy filling, crepe is thin and good. I would  have preferred it if more of the original durian taste is preserved- too much artificial cream added. Angie the Choice’s durian crepe filling is better, though the filling is not as generous and crepe skin is not as thin. Shall try Emicake’s soon- has anyone tried it?

2. Durian swiss roll ($4.50)- ongoing 50% discount at YewTee Point. Very generous durian filling right smack in the middle, surrounded by a sponge layer that is not too thin and not too thick. Filling tasted like ice cream. Nice.

3. Durian pancakes ($1.50 each)- ongoing 3-for-3 promotion at YewTee Point. I tried this 2 years ago at AMK hub. Warmly served. I prefer durian desserts cold from the fridge, and more durian relative to the skin. So, crepe over pancakes for me!

4. Durian cake ($4.50)- also on a 50% discount at YewTee Point. It has a small durian puff on the top, which is really good; I normally don’t like eating puffs because they are dry and hard, but this one is soft and nice with real durian filling! Nice!

5. Durian mochi- has anyone tried it?
