Have you BVAX-ed?

I was recently invited to Better Vision for a blogger’s event, to get BVAX-ed!

BVAX is a 12 – Step Program, which aims to get an accurate assessment, correct diagnosis and prescription, based on your unique lifestyle. Upon arriving at the store, we were “enlightened” on the 12 step process, and also got our IQs tested!  To be honest I was a mix of excited and nervous, considering the last time I had my eyes tested was back in…. secondary school? That’s 10 years ago! *grits teeth. I was actually worried I would leave with glasses.

While waiting my turn, I couldn’t help trying out a whole lot of different frames, particularly the Bearbrick and Superdry ones.

Tiny bears on the sides, toooooooo cute!

The Bearbricks come in such adorable boxes! Strawberries and melons! How much cuter can they get?

The Superdry!

Would have been perfect if I actually needed glasses. But… Here’s where it got interesting. When it came to my turn (finally), I hopped into the chair and the first step was reading the alphabets and numbers on the wall, you guys know that one right? Well……… thing is, I “aced” the test. I read everything, I could read every line, right down to the teeniest tiniest bottom row! After 10 years, I was still a 6/6! :)))) Then came my question, so how am I going to tell you about my BVAX experience? Well, I guess I can’t cos my perfect eyesight doesn’t allow me to to, soooooo let me just post more photos!

I didn’t get to go through all 12 steps, but Beth did! And she ended up with new frames complete with Crizal lenses and Coach sunnies! Believe it or not, the tests revealed that she was wearing a prescription that was higher than what she actually required! I’m really glad that got rectified! Well, I may not have needed to go through the BVAX test, but I did ask to get checked out for contact lenses since I’ve never had a pleasant experience wearing colored contacts, ever. It turns out that my eye curvature is steeper than the average, no wonder the lenses never stayed in place! Everytime I tried wearing colored contacts in the past, they’ll be slipping and sliding all over the place causing immense, and I mean IMMENSE irritation, I gave up. At least now I know the cause of it.

I’ve heard my dad talk about Crizal lenses, I’ve seen adverts, but I’ve never really bothered with what they were. Speaking of dad, I really wish I had brought him to the event, he would have benefited greatly, more so than I did from the one day promo, he really needs new glasses! :/

Essilor’s Crizal UV lenses offer both front and back UV protection, a first in the market! Did you know that normal lenses do not protect your eyes from back UV reflection? In fact this is the most dangerous because it is invisible, and most glass wearers are not even aware of this threat! So, how do the new Crizal UV lenses protect your eyes?

Of course, I need to know what it looks like on my head right? Ted doesn’t look too happy tho, as usual. Because I have no degree, we came to the conclusion that spending $200+ on a pair of geek glasses that I will only wear for fun doesn’t make much sense, so I ended up snagging a pair or Raybans! Finally! The real thing!

I likey! :)

every cigarette is doing you damage

i don’t know about you, but if this doesn’t convince a smoker to quit, i really don’t know what will.

listen carefully to the statistics. horrible, smoking related diseases are attacking smokers who are only in their 30s! if you ask me, i’d say that’s just about where life really begins. 

and this next video is specifically for the boys… smoking damages your sex life.

and it is also a known fact that,

every time you light up, just one cigarette alone takes away 11 minutes of your life span.

if you are one who knows how precious even one second is, imagine how losing a few years would be like.

does that make smoking a sin? i reckon that might be a possibility, cos if you see it how i see it, we’d be committing a very slow suicide, and taking away years from the life God gave us… so if ending your life on your own accord is considered a sin, i’d say smoking is too.


…the question here is, with the knowledge of the definite damage that smoking can and WILL do, why do people still do it?

if you treasure your life, this is one video i would highly recommend. it is a video compiled by Allen Carr, the biggest anti-smoking guru in the world as named by BBC.


here is another one by Dr Mark Harries.

no doubt, it’s gonna stick a knife in your chest, but it also helps smokers see the reality of what they are in for…

there’s tons of videos online that want to help you to quit, but you have to open your mind enough to accept that help.
