    the last time i was in hong kong, i went over to shenzen. bought frames with prescription lenses for less than $40 a pair. thats probably a lot with my gweilo bargaining skills. they are branded frames, but equal to if not better than my real designer frames in quality.

    If you know your full prescription, you can still save a bit of money and get decent lenses by buying them online when you get your frames

    My Oliver Peoples came with free single vision lenses, and the upgrade to 1.6 essilor lenses with top of the line crizal forte coating for $75. Locally this would've been $220+.

    and of course, if you paid for an eye test (or the government paid for it on your behalf), the optometrist is obliged to provide the prescription to you. i think youre entitled to a bulk billed eye test every 12 months.

    even if you buy glasses from them, ask for it.

    Yes, need to get your PD/pupillary distance measurement, which they often "forget" to give you.

    When I used to work as an Optom Assistant in undergrad, I was under orders from corporate not to give out the PD's.

    Still did it. Our mark ups were a fucking joke. Especially on plastic frames. At least the titanium frames had some tangible reason to be more expensive.

    But PD's can be done DIY if you've got the frames, a friend with a marker, and a ruler.

    Tim Sheens hasn't been coach since Sep 12 and left the club completely Dec 12. You mean Mick Potter, who is even smaller than Sheens

    I wish...they are Bestetti Gladiators! maybe Russell should get a pair.


    Has the American version already started on Foxtel? I have not seen it on the list.

    Aoud Lime is awesome. Never, ever seen it on discount, sadly. Let me know if you do.

    Don't you know that for every minute you think about when something will be delivered, it gets delivered a day later?

    Yes the Aoud Lime is really nice, I got it through ebay it came from Israel but postage was free but it was kind of slow though.
