Firmoo Glasses: A Review

Recently, I got a new pair of prescription glasses from Firmoo. 

What a ugly lens case. I like the world thing but the logo is in a terrible color

Shitty construction. It doesn't close well. 

Nice shape. But what the fuck the lenses aren't very opaque

I like gold. 

Contrast altered so I look like I'm part of the MIB. Bad ass MOFO.

Overall, I'm okay with the service. I think their customer support is all in China because I got these half-assed, weird grammar customer support emails. Also, it's shipped from China. They also told me that "my order is very complicated and it would take 3 extra days". Why not say "it'll take 6 days"? That makes so much more sense. 

Right now, they're a bit strong for me. I recently went to the optomologist and after an eye exam, he said he could give me a prescription for a pair of glasses that were a bit stronger. I didn't want it. Then a week later, I went in for the prescription for these glasses. I didn't realize that it was going to be stronger. Damn! I'm going into the office tomorrow to get them checked out. I'll probs try them out tomorrow when driving or something.

Egg Tarts

Today, I made Egg Tarts (Cantonese style) with this recipe:

The crust is fugly and it's not that thick. However, it tastes fine. The recipe isn't too sweet and I like it a lot.

Listia Wins!

I recently heard about this new thing called "Listia". At first, I was pretty skeptical. However, it's basically like a "free ebay" or "freebay". You auction with "credits". I mean you can get credits for free (i.e auction your stuff and do free promotional stuff and randomly) or you can buy credits. It's up to you. 

Personally, I think that it's okay. The items range from really shitty to high end. I think that if more people were to join, then you could find cheaper, nice items. 

Some complaints I have is that the support team is useless. They just quote their policies. It's retarded. Besides that, it's buyers beware. I've seen some "I HATE LISTIA. I KEEP GETTING OUTBID" or "SELLERS WERE FAKES". Well... yeah. It's like ebay. They have proxy bidding and scammers out there. It's called the internet. 

I recently won a Victoria's Secret Tote thing for 2300 credits or so. I think its like 1500 credits for about 5 dollars or so. If you base it on that, then you can get this bag for like 10 dollars. Considering how VS charges 35+ per bag (ridiculous), it's a good deal. I'll let you guys know when I receive the bag. For now, here's a pic:

A late haul

I'm poor. And yet I still buy stuff. My life is a mess. 

I bought Rebel Lipstick from the MAC store in Soho, Guilietta by Tocca rollerball from Sephora near Macys (with 2 samples) and also Helping Hands (or whatever its called) from Lush with the  body butter tin. I friggin hate the tins. They're so hard to open. I keep chipping my manicure. 

Sashimi Lunch from Wasabi, in Orange, CT. We went to Cape Cod for the weekend. Delish
