Long live WMS

Yippeee!!!

I’ve a new spec. Actually…I got 2 new specs! Yes! 2!!! I know I can get it cheaper when I go back home next year. But hear me out.

My company is so nice that they are willing to contribute a little towards getting a new spec since I’m working in front of the computer most of the time. You may not know this if your eyes are perfect but people like me needs to get eyes checked every two years.

The last time my eye test was 3 years ago at my hometown. At that time, I paid for £35 to get a new considerably trendy spec. This includes eye test and special coating for reflection. Cheap eh!?! I had my glasses tinted but it isn’t very popular in UK so they ended up thinking that I’m colour-blinded. =.=

It’s far too cheap in Malaysia but in UK, expect the worse. Everything is charged. The Specsaver, 60+ chained-opticians charged eye test for £17. Going to the frames, the normal and unpleasant glasses costs £25. It could cost you at least £125 for a designer’s specs! Without noticing, you could end up spending hundreds to get a comfy and wearable spec.

I myself prefer one that is trendy, comfy and flexible. I was planning to wait until my big holiday to get a new spec. But my eyesight is getting worse and having headache every morning lately. So, I decided to get a temporary cheap one soon not until this golden opportunity comes...

CONTRIBUTIONS FROM MY EMPLOYER, WMS! >>> I love you more and more each day...wahaha...

The contribution was not much but it helps a lot. With this, I get free eye test and £20 discount off any frames purchased from £99 range and above. Now, the most interesting part is Specsaver offers buy 1 get 1 free glass from £99 above. And oh...not to forget...free scratch resistant as well...Woot~~~~

Now I get a free full eye test and 2 new specs at just one spec price and at discounted price! Pretty amazing! You might be thinking, “2 glasses? What for?” I thought the same too...but if you get another one free, why not? One for work, one for party / casual.

So, how much I have saved so far? Without the offer & discounted price, I may need to pay £191 altogether but I’ve only paid £79, which is just about the price of 2 specs in Malaysia. Would you do the same thing if you were me??? Woot~~~~

Now I might just need to spend a few quids to change the glasses to tinted & special coating reflections when I’m back to my homwtown.

OK…enough the crap...let me show you guys the 2 new specs I just got few days ago. Tadah!!!

Jimmy like them as well! What do you think, guys?


Thank you so much, WMS...

Finally...

After 4 days surviving on just porridge, water and yogurts, finally I can CHEW. Munch! Munch! Munch! I felt a lot better today and still swelling a little bit. You see...that's why you don't get to see the photos of me wearing the new specs. Will pose with them when I'm fully recovered...

Over the last few days, I find it difficult to put the spoon into my mouth. The spoon’s too BIG for my mouth! =.= And it hurts if I open my mouth wider...

But tonight, it’s not that much pain anymore, I had egg mayonaise sandwich. Only ate two but I'd to squeeze them into my widest open mouth. One munch at a second T__T

Now that’s all the wisdom teeth are out, I am relieved. Very relieved. No more worries! *wink*

Thank God...



Ciao...xx
