Things that make me go “Mmmmmm…”

I was out shopping in Queensbay Mall again today, and surprisingly enough, my hubby let out of the bag to me that MNG was having a big sale. Now that’s like a ticket for me to go shop there, right? And Esprit was on sale too….I went into Esprit first because there were fewer people there. And when I finally went into the immensely packed MNG….it all made sense why Esprit was rather empty. When MNG is on sale, it is *REALLY* on sale….. I managed to grab 3 tops in a record time of 20 minutes. And without trying them on too. How’s that for efficiency? The queue to go into the fitting room was snake-long and I could not afford the wait (each person in the queue had like 5-6 articles of clothing to try on each)…. but something tells me that I will be back for more looting while the sale is still on. *grins*

I also went for a FREE eye-checkup at Focus Point. My PILs were there to make new pairs of glasses, so I was just passing the time and being curious at the same time too. Besides, it had been a long time since I had my eyes checked. Now, I don’t wear any glasses or contacts, by the way. Am I considered vain to want to get a pair of unpowered glasses to make me look *smarter*? Not that I look dumb or anything now, but ….. just itching… hehehe. Hmmmm…I might try colored contacts too, out of curiosity. Oh yeah, so back to the results of my eye test. From what I understood from the salesguy, my vision is no 100% perfect, but I could still do without glasses. So based on the following technical data for my eye checkup, can someone please enlighten me on what it means, really?

Right Eye
+0.25 (Long-sighted)
-0.75 (Astigmatism)
110 (I think the last value here is the power. I tried asking the guy but he didn’t seem to understand what I meant…)

Left Eye
+0.00 (Perfect vision 🙂 )
-0.50 (Astigmatism)


On a separate note, I will be paying a maiden visit to the g Hotel tomorrow to attend a food-tasting lunch for my brother-in-law’s wedding, in conjunction with his registration of marriage. Although he told us the dress code is chinchai I take this as an occasion to dress up! Woo-hoo! … and here’s a sneak preview of what I plan to wear:

    check out that ONG ONG cheongsam! wear it and parade around for us, quick!

    MNG’s on sale here too, but this season’s style isn’t quite what I like. and I think I’ve also been converted to other brands, so many here to choose from, all on sale too… argh! must keep my cards at home!

    p.s. your eyesight is near perfect, no need for any glasses, except for maybe when you drive at night. just in case. astigmatism tends to make your eyes see lights as blobs rather than sharp lighting themselves, but don’t worry – only in extreme cases are you affected.

    The Giddy Tiger says: The sale gets to me every time too. And you’re right credit cards are TOO convenient to use. If I get hubby to drive at night, then I have my problem solved, right?

    The Giddy Tiger says: You can still shop online! But you know, it’s never quite the same…hehehe.

    The Giddy Tiger says: I still don’t know what those readings mean, but I am glad to know that I don’t need those glasses 🙂

    The Giddy Tiger says: Wah…not enough shopping in HK, shop some more in MNG ah? Hehe…my hubby helped me select the tops, but he warned me to be quick. That’s why I managed it all in 20 minutes!

  11. rinnah says:

    I’m so envious of your near-perfect vision! I’ll need to undergo Lasik before I can get anywhere near there.

    Where’s the full pic of you all dolled up in the cheongsam? Don’t la just post teaser pic… *grin*

    The Giddy Tiger says: I can refer you to a reputable Lasik center if you’re interested! 😀
