REPOST: Backdated 23|06|2011

Photos were taken from the photoshoot I did one windy Sunday with Sylwia. She is the "goddess of the sea". She has the most beautiful blue eyes I envy, she has the most kindest heart and one of the nicest person I've met. Ever. Thanks for trusting me to take your picture, I hope to work with you again some time soon xoxo





On another note, I'd like to share my experience of my successful laser eye surgery....

It's been more than a week since I had my laser eye surgery and I never felt this better eversince I was 15, the age I started wearing glasses. It's surreal to see everything clear without wearing contact lenses, I'm truly grateful for this technology! Seriously!

I posted the experience on my facebook wall and a lot has been asking me about it, got emails from strangers too! So I decided to make a post out of my awesome experience... First off, this eye laser thing-y was always in my mind ever since I've heard about it but I was too coward to have it a go. Also the cost was putting me off but then I was thinking what the heck, I'm spending thousands on my camera gear why not save some for my blinding eyes???

I believe in the law of attraction and the power of the universe so why not cut out a piece of blue eyes and paste it on the wall where I can see it everyday to remind myself I'll do a laser eye surgery one day. Which I did on the 11th of June - a day I will always remember (",)

I was, of course, put into a series of tests before the day of my surgery to make sure that my eyes are healthy enough to go under operation. It helps that Optical Express is reachable since Day 1 and everything is well explained. 

Now the experience on the day itself.... I got shaken a bit to be honest when the nurse led me to the operating bed. She asked me to lay down and I was like, "OMG, this is it! This is it! I might gonna die!", of course I was only saying that inside my head. The operating lights made me nauseous I was freaking out but pretending I wasn't, I was trying to look "cool and smart" haha! The nurse might have psyched me so she began to talk about the weather and stuff and she let me talk and talk and talk while holding the Guinness stress pint which helped me a lot to ease my tension by the way. (Note to self: get one for myself). The doctor came and performed the operation on me while the nurse is explaining what was happening along the process. She was saying like, "you're gonna see an amber light then it's gonna be really dark for a second, no worries it's normal.","you're gonna hear a noisy sound and that's laser doing the works..." Next thing I knew it's done! I guess it only took around 2 minutes per eye.

The doctor checked my eyes in another room and he said my eyes are doing well after, the surgery was successful! Another nurse accompanied me to another room and explained to me what will gonna happen afterwards. I was given eyedrops and other stuff to take home with me especially when the anesthesia is gone. I went back to the lounge area to meet H and everyone was looking at me, I was happily smiling and said to them everything's gonna be okay (",)

The next few hours after were quite blur from my memory because all I did was to sleep and eat. My eyes can see clearly after few hours of the operation and I was back to normal, It helps a lot when you have a good family support, they do everything for you while you're weak, well I wasn't that weak but I was spoiled rotten... which happens everday anyway (",)

Well, thank you if you managed to read all this way. I appreciate your time!

Optical Express is highly recommended, I'm very well satisfied with their service!
