How I Passed for Advanced Lasik Procedure at Shinagawa Ortigas

I’ve been wearing specs my entire life since I was a kid. Imagine, I was the  super chubby girl with eyeglasses. It also kinda runs in the family, My dad and my sisters. My 3 siblings and I are four-eyed. My mom wears reading glasses, I don’t know it it counts because of the whole aging thing.

As I got older, during highschool and college I tend to just hang my glasses because I feel I look better without glasses. It was when after I graduated I tried wearing contact lenses, it was a hassle because of how busy I am, I tend to forget to put solution now and then,  in a matter of 6 hours my eyes get irritated and red. Back in college, I didn’t want to wear contacts because there were studies that it lead to dry eyes.

Growing up I was socially awkward (I know it is hard to believe the person I am today), I didn’t look straight and my friends till today still tease me the way I look at people before. It was just a phase, glad I am over it. Till now I couldn’t find a logical reason on how I look at people before. Especially when it came to my crushes, I can’t even imagine how weird I was haha. 

I remembered meeting an optha specialist in the gym, forgot her name though. This was during college and she told me that at age 24 is the perfect age to get lasik because I was planning on my 18th birthday to get the procedure. Her professional advice was at the age of 24, that is already most like likely our permanent vision. If as early as that time my vision can still change plus considering lifestyle.

Now that I turned 24 this year, It’s about time.

So If you guys are planning to get lasik at SHINAGAWA, make sure you don’t wear contact lenses for 7 days to get exactly the grade of your eyes. The test runs for about 3 hours atleast so it’s better to come in early. Before that set an appointment. I’ll be putting the details below. 

Another REMINDER : DON’T DRIVE home after the test. 

TIP: Bring SHADES and JACKET. You’ll know why after reading. 

For your information, Shinagawa perfroms advanced lasik, not the traditional lasik we all hear growing up like going under the knife stories and the complications that you may go blind etc. 

To differentiate them quickly, the TRADITIONAL LASIK PROCEDURE, (microkeratome) – this is the instrument that cuts an evenly thin lining of cornea. According to studies it may lead to possible complications. 

Compared to the ADVANCED LASIK PROCEDURE, is completely laser which don’t lead to complications. Preparation would take about 2 hours but the procedure would take just 8 minutes (both eyes). Here is how it goes: 

  • Corneal Flap is cut and prepared using a femtosecond laser.
  • Flap is folded to one side by the surgeon
  • Using an excimer laser, the connective tissue is reshaped
  • The flap which was created and lifted is then put back into its original position.
  • SHINAGAWA’S lasik, gives you functional vision within 6-12 hours following the ADVANCED LASIK surgery with better technologies, you can expect high definition vision and stability in a much shorter time. 

Sorry for the long intro, So to the point on how I passed for the screening. 

Like I said, It would take atleast 3 hours. You first write your basic and health related information. Then wait for your turn. They have 2 testing sites one in an open lighted area and the other one is the dark room. 

TIP: The center is kinda cold, I suggest to bring a JACKET. 

First stop is at the OPEN AREA, they check your vision and eye pressure using from one machine to the other. Then  next at the DARK ROOM, different machines were used  to test your vision. I can’t explain specifically each machine but you’ll be hopping from one machine to the other in a jiffy. 

Then you wait again, The 3rd test, is about reading from afar by covering one eye – During my time it was about finding the open part of a circle. The Circle starts as BIG then becomes small. Then you do the test all over again this time with grade. Then they also check for any color blindness

After that, every 5 minutes for 3 times my eyes were given dilating drops. It made my eyes blurry and sensitive to light, Thank goodness I brought shades. So I have to wait for an hour for my results.

TIP: They have a nearby Starbucks and Jollibee. 

After an hour, I talked to Doctor and he said I PASSED. Yay! I was a bit worried because my dad did not passed  his  lasik screen test abroad and we have almost the same grade but his is a bit higher. Mine is 2.5 something and his is 3. something, I think. I’ll be sharing my actual results maybe on my next post. 

So SHINAGAWA, had an ongoing promo for October 68k instead of 140K which is the original price. This promo entitles to BDO CREDIT CARD HOLDERS, 12 Months to pay and 0% INTEREST. 

Wish me all the best on my upcoming procedure, I know I am in good hands and I will be blogging about it after 🙂

Get Instant White Teeth at The Smile Bar PH

When I got into my 20s I realized how important it was to take care of my teeth. Before back in college I would fall asleep while studying and sometimes forgetting to brush my teeth. Sounds gross but that’s reality I am not the only one who does it but I do brush my teeth in the morning definitely FYI. I gained cavities (How sad) but then I had my dental fillings in order for my cavities not to get worst. Then I have committed myself to MOUTH CARE ever since. I tried all the whitening toothpaste, mouthwash and gels you can buy in the market, it just prevents it from becoming darker (yellow) and you’ll see the result but it takes time.

Having a set of pearly whites really boost confidence, you know what I mean? 

Finally Hong Kong’s The Smile Bar is here in the Philippines! Now here is my personal experience trying out their TRIPLE WHITENING service.

Here is a link of the FAQS about THE SMILE BAR (This is my previous blogpost if you want a backstory, proper introduction, services, price list and common inquiries)  http://www.krishgeek.com/smile-bar-now-here-in-the-philippines/

  1. They make you fill out a form just basic and health – related questions. You get to meet your SMILE TENDER who will explain and perform the procedure. My smile tender was Ate Milky! The customer will be the one choosing their preferred service. 
  • Single Whitening (1 x 20 minutes at PHP2,999) 
  • Double Whitening (2 x 20 minutes, PHP4,999),
  • Triple Whitening (3 x 20 minutes at PHP6,499)
  • Year Whitening (12 x 20 minutes at PHP24,999)

It may be a bit pricey but its worth it, when it comes to the treatments. 

“The problem with home whitening kits is that they are never a sure thing. Some are cheap, some are expensive. Some claim to be natural, while others come with toxicity warnings. You can never tell where you stand with these at-home trays and LED lights” – THE SMILE BAR

Before treatment

PRE – TEETH ASSESSMENT is done, so you will know what shade or how yellow your teeth is. Mine is in the MIDDLE of it all SHADE 20 (They determine the shade by following after the 2 front teeth) . When it comes to the results, your teeth will naturally whiten by 2- 9 shades. Results may last up to 6 months depending on your lifestyle. 

02. Preparation before treatment:

  • Mouthwash first, using BRILLANT SMILE WHITENING EVO MOUTH RINSE 
  • Brushing of teeth using BRILLANT SMILE WHITENINGEVO TOOTHPASTE and ofcourse a special toothbrush imported from Sweden – which you can bring home after.

03. Start of the  Whitening treatment, My treatment is the TRIPLE WHITENING. They made me sit in the EGG CHAIR or POD (You can adjust the seat till you feel comfortable) and they asked if I wanted headphones and an iPad. The headphones are the brand, BOSE, so definitely high definition surround sound and in the iPad they have the Safari and Spotify applications while you’re at it. 

  • First, the use of the DENTAL CLEANSER with the use of your pointer finger they will place the dental cleanser (It’s like a glove for your finger) and then you apply on the top coat of your teeth. – HOPE THAT MAKES SENSE but it’s SANITARY 
  • The Smile tender will prepare the mouth piece and application of the WHITENING GEL
  • Whitening gel
  • The WHITENING GEL will be activated by the LED plasma light (FREE OF UV and prevents Cancer)
  • Since it’s TRIPLE WHITENING, it means 3 sessions (20 minutes each) and then every session is about to end the LED will make a sound saying that’s it’s done. The light will turn off then you head back to the washroom where you have to rinse and with the use of your toothbrush to brush of the excess gel. 
  • During the session, it is NORMAL at first that you may feel a little TINGLE and you can swallow your saliva. 
  • After 1 session (SINGLE)

    After 2nd session (DOUBLE)

04. When it’s all done, after the last rinse you head over back to the teeth assessment area and check how many shades your teeth have become. So mine after 3 sessions, 8 shades lighter. 

*Click photo*

As part of your aftercare, they have recommendations for the next 72 hours after treatment:

  • Avoid strongly colored drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, soda
  • Avoid food that cause stains such as chocolate, and those with food coloring
  • Avoid acidic food such as tomatoes, vinegar, soy, citrus, and chili sauce as these cause tooth hypersensitivity
  • Avoid smoking
  • Do a fluoride rinse twice a day to rebuild enamel and fill any microscopic cavities

05. If you get the NANO SEAL TOTAL additional PHP 1299. They are gonna apply in on the teeth and leave in on for 1-2 minutes and you are all good. The purpose of the nano seal it allows to keep your usual lifestyle without any impact. So right after you don’t have to worry about avoiding the following food indicated at #4, YOU CAN EAT AND DRINK WHATEVER. It’s may be pricey but the perks that come with it. 

Then Application of VITAMIN SWAB, for the gums. They’ll give you 2 sticks, one you can use after and one before going to bed when you get home. If sensitivity occurs from the first swab don’t apply the second before bed. It looks like a qtip or cotton buds then you break the seal with a mark, the fluid will go to the other end of the bud and apply in on your gums above and below your teeth – NOT the gums under (heading to the tonsils)

It is advised to DRINK WATER after.

MYA, Hallyu Secret launch PH office; recognizes K-Beauty Olympics winners

San Juan City, Philippines – Mi-Yong Alliance (MYA), the country’s pioneer Korean Beauty Academy recently held the grand opening of its new office in Greenhills, San Juan City. Since 2016, MYA consistently introduces Korean skin care courses to Filipino clients, embarking a new milestone in beauty and cosmetics industry.

Certainly, Korean skin care has found its new home in Greenhills.

Mi-Yong Alliance, Korea Chairman, Mr. Raphael Jang welcomed the guests and media with his inspiring speech, sharing the journey of MYA along with its Korean skin care clinic, Hallyu Secret Aesthetics. According to him, the past two years have been tough and challenging however, they managed to stay firm with their passion and dedication.

This all started with our hope to share quality skills and the latest trends to Filipinos. Our journey for the last 2 years was not easy. Kris and I would always fight about many things, there were a lot of times that we wanted to stop working and give-up. But as we make classes, batch after batch, there is a growing obligation and responsibility to our clients whom we consider our children in the industry. We could not stop aiming the best for them that why we keep giving opportunities to people grow with us as well. Some examples are our instructor course programs and K-Beauty Olympics. We know that this kind of programs will totally change their future,” Chairman Jang pronounced.

Kris Candyd Sibal

Philippine CEO Kris Candyd Sibal introduces Hallyu Secret Aesthetics treatments, which finely cater wide range of solutions for every customer. Some of their advanced skin care services like BB Glow and XY Blush, Gold Therapy and Secret Semi-permanent mascara were discussed during the program.

Raphael Jang

MYA has successfully made a reputation as the Korean beauty academy who consistently bring “first in the Philippines” beauty treatments. This is made true by the Korean style permanent make-up, BB Glow and Semi-Permanent Mascara which are widely available to many salons, clinics and skin care center today. Hallyu Secret’s system was adopted from a famous beauty center in Gangnam, Seoul named Pretty Face Clinic where in Chairman Jang is also one of the directors of the said clinic,” PCEO Sibal shared.

Well-known for permanent make-up (PMU) techniques, MYA’s head instructor Ms. LK Park enlightened guests and media about their various services.

LK PARK

I am LK Park, I am here now in Philippines with a mission to spread quality skills among the Filipino PMU specialists. There are a lot of wrong cases in Philippines, a lot of clients go to us for correction of their brows. This is what our academy is famous for after all. PMU has evolved through time, today it doesn’t only focus on the brows, eyeline and lips, it became a procedure now for those who have scars, bald scalp, and those with dark areolas. It became a solution to cover-up the insecurities of people. Here at Hallyu Secret all these kinds of PMU services are available. From making your brows on fleek up to coveing the baldness of your head,” she stated.

#ALOHAgain! to the #AmazingAlohaYumBurger

It’s back! one of my favorite jollibee staples, THE JOLLIBEE ALOHA YUMBURGER. It’s successful launch last time has definitely won the people’s heart. Affordable and you could chose from a single and double patty option. 

After much demand and hype over one of the leading quick service restaurant’s most unique menu offerings, Jollibee brings back the irresistibly delicious, truly Amazing Aloha Yumburger for all Filipinos to enjoy.

Diners can now say ‘Aloha’ to the sweet, savory, pineapple-beefy and langhap-sarap flavor explosion from their favorite Amazing Aloha Yumburger. Its fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, signature sweet and juicy pineapple ring, cheese, trademark 100% beef patty, and specially blended honey mustard dressing all come together so seamlessly that treating yourself to one will leave you craving for that juicy, well-balanced indulgence all over again.

It’s no surprise that the Amazing Aloha Yumburger remains to be one of Jollibee’s most successful limited time offers, since the first time it debuted in 1996, re-launched in 2013—the year the legendary Anthony Bourdain hailed it as a “very tasty burger”, and made seasonal menu appearances again in 2014 and 2017. With the well-loved sweet-savory burger back in the market this 2018, fans can instantly solve their Amazing Aloha Yumburger cravings while customers who have yet to try it can treat themselves to a one-of-a-kind multi-layer burger experience.

Every bite brings a flavorful taste from its diverse ingredients. We are happy to offer this in our menu once again, and we highly encourage everyone—including those who have not tried it yet—to check it out and experience the ‘Aloha’ moment themselves, as soon as they can as it is available for a limited time only.”

Custom Brows by BrowHaus

What comes oddly satisfying is a clean set and on fleek eyebrows. The saying goes “kilay is life”.

I always had bushy and thick eyebrows growing up and threading has become a forever regular routine. I always get mine regularly clean every 2 weeks. If it goes bushy they have to shape it. That’s how important it is for me to get my eyebrows groom all the time.

Setting foot at BrowHaus, is also an experience. I never experienced threading ever that painful and you’re sitting comfortably – very laidback. The browarchitects especially have really light hands “magaan ang kamay”.  At browhaus, they call it “brow construction” with basic brow shaping. For the classic P698 and modern tweezing P698. You get what you pay for. Yes it is pricey compared to others because of the state of the art equipment they use and they are all about function and style. 

 Besides threading they offer LASH AND BROW CARE, COSMETICS (You should try their HD lengthening mascara P998, precision eyeliner in black P798 & brown P750, brow definer P900 and oil base erase makeup remover p900)  and other services like EYE DEINE & LIP DEFINE.

But then there is more you could do to your brows, if you feel that your brows deserve more why not try “BROW RESURRECTION”. It is a natural semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement solution. Bringing your lifeless brows to life!

Brow Resurrection creates realistic hair strands from root to tip to give you perfect brows! Unique only to Browhaus, this treatment uses an advance embroidery technique to create natural-looking strokes, resulting in a finer finish compared to other semi-permanent brow treatments that simply weave in parallel hair strands.

It comes in CLASSIC, FULL AND OMBRE.

CLASSIC (P42, 800) realistic and long lasting strands giving it a bold and refined look. It has a downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch up until 12 months (P7500)

FULL (P72,000) Life like feathery strokes for a full look. It has a downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch ups until 18 months (P9800).

OMBRE (P80, 000) is a combination of the 2 with more of a gradient base and I’ve seen it myself it’s like you have highlights. Same downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch ups until 18 months (P9800).

These 3 all have after care treatment called AFTER CARE CAMERA KIT.

Here are commonly asked questions:

How painless is BR?

We go that extra mile to ensure a comfortable experience from start to finish. To minimise discomfort, the therapist will apply a superior numbing cream to the treatment area. Nine out of 10 customers feedback that they don’t experience any discomfort and for those who do, the discomfort is #NoBigDeal and likened to eyebrow tweezing.

How long is the treatment duration?

The entire procedure takes 90 minutes for Brow Resurrection Classic, Soft and Full and 120 minutes for Brow Resurrection Ombre to complete, consisting of consultation and the treatment itself.

Are there any after effects?

After treatment effects varies with every individual. Post-treatment, there might be slight swelling and tenderness on the treated area. Don’t immediately freak out if you think the colour of your brows are too dark after the treatment – the colour is meant to fade over the next 6 to 10 days, leaving you with the desired shade that you initially agreed on with your therapist.

LG GIFTS THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES WITH THE WORLD’S #1 OLED TV

On its 30th anniversary, LG Philippines salutes the National Museum of the Philippines and its new National Museum of Natural History, and celebrates one of the world’s richest marine ecosystems.

To further its CSR thrust of promoting education, LG Philippines, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, has made a large donation in-kind to the National Museum of the Philippines, both in acknowledgement of its valuable work and to celebrate its newly opened National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Rizal Park. LG is hoping to promote a more holistic and interactive experience for visitors by donating one 65-inch OLED TV (E8), one 55-inch OLED TV (C8) and one 55-inch UHD TV to the premier public museum institution of the country. 

As part of the donation, LG also commissioned underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara to create a short video that showcases the richness and beauty of underwater life in the Philippines, said to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity on earth. The video, shot off Balicasag Island in Panglao, Bohol features colorful reefs, tropical fish of all sizes and turtle residence. 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to actually dive there.”

Guevara’s video was premiered to media and special friends at the NMNH on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s newest and most stunning display to date, which showed off the underwater sights of the Bohol Sea to the best advantage. Marrying best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display measures a paper-thin 0.23 inches), the W8 represents the height of TV technology, flaunting true-to-life picture quality and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound. This newly launched model is also equipped with LG’s new Alpha α9 intelligent processor, which has the ability to create the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.

Jeremy Barns, director of the National Museum of the Philippines, expressed his profound gratitude for the TVs and commissioned video, “We are very thankful to LG for their generous donation to the National Museum and for their enthusiastic support of our new National Museum of Natural History, which has broken new ground in facilitating far wider public appreciation of the natural wonders of the Philippine archipelago. These cutting-edge, beautifully designed TVs, combined with the work of this institution, will immerse our viewers and provide them with special experiences of the heritage and patrimony of the Filipino people. This video will convey more effectively than ever before the amazing marine experience that Bohol, one of so many extraordinary places in the Philippines, has to offer—short of diving Balicasag Island’s hidden depths themselves.” Barns also added that the video is a very timely complement to the opening later this year of the new National Museum in Bohol, housed at Tagbilaran’s restored and converted former provincial capitol building which was damaged in the 2013 earthquake. The museum director believes that the video should also be prominently featured in the Bohol museum in addition to the NMNH. He went on to say that the video will also feature in all the appropriate public platforms of the National Museum and be recommended to relevant key partner government agencies, including the Department of Education, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Department of Tourism, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

“LG’s goal is to harness the power of beautiful images and modern, innovative technology to fuel and inspire the next generation,” says LG Philippines managing director Mr. Inkwun Heo. “The TVs we are donating to the National Museum can be used both as educational vessels and design inspiration. The LG OLED TVs can integrate perfectly into the interiors of the National Museum in Manila and the other educational centers in their growing network of museums within the country, while the video will give museum visitors moving glimpses of the Philippines’ natural inheritance. We at LG Philippines are very proud to be associated with this great public institution and center of education, science and culture, and all of the work that they carry out for the benefit of the Filipino people and their innumerable friends throughout the world.”
