Drink cloud juice, but not at Damansara Uptown

Or at least not yet until someone or some enterprise bottle cloud juice from Taman Negara.

Haven't heard of cloud juice? Heard of sky juice? All would know that sky juice is plain water, mostly from tap water. But cloud juice? Something new? It seem Tasmania has been harvesting rainwater at the remote King Island, processed it into potable water, bottled them for distribution, even for export.

Now National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) wants to get into the act. NAHRIM had been researching on harvesting rainwater at Taman Negara, converting it to potable water whild studying the feasibility of bottling cloud juice for commercial purpose.

Korean soft serve ice cream at Damansara Uptown

Yearn to try the super creamy Korean soft serve ice cream? Now you can get it at Softsrve Ice-cream & Dessert Bar along Jalan SS21/1A. Now you can try the Malaysian version of the Korean Softtree and Milkcow without having to fly all the way to Korea.

Its founders Amily Chong and Redmond Ho wants to have the distinction to be the first in Malaysia to introduce the cereal milk soft serve ice cream, rather similar to what you can get at New York's Momofuku Milk Bar. It is made by lightly roasting cornflakes, then steeping them in milk, filter then churned into ice cream.

Malaya Optical now into marketing bicycles and accessories?


Today while strolling pass Malaya Optical, I was drawn to the sight of something unusual for an Optical shop, an impressive bike and accessories:

Bicycle and accessories
Bicycle and accessories at Malays Optical
Interest piqued, I walked into the shop and bumped into Ryan Ho, the boss, optometrist of Malaya Optical, and now Damansara Utama Ortho-K specialist. Asked him if he has added bicycles and accessories to his large store optical products offerings and the answer was in the affirmative although body language says he is not as confident as he usually is but affirming that is done in a small way.

Nice encounter for I learned new stuff, this revolutionary Orthokeratology which can correct growing children for myopia without using eyeglasses, contact lenses or Lasik.

Myopia correction without contact lens or lasik

Today learned of a new technological stuff called Ortho-K (orthokeratology or Corneal Refractive Therapy) which I have been given to understand as being able to correct my myopia (short-sightedness) without eye glasses, without contact lens, without lasik. It is a non-surgical procedure to reshape the corneal. This diagram would summarize how it is done:

I would dearly love to get it for myself so I can rid of this nuisance called optical eyeglass or spectacles. I dread people making cuts on my cornea and don't fancy a contact lens in contact with my eye, well, at least not in the long term. Unfortunately Orthokeratology is too late for me already with children and grandchildren in tow.

Ortho-K is only suitable for:

  • Children from the age of 6 years old
  • Children with Myopia up to -6.00 DS and Cylinder up to -2.00DC
  • Children who always breaks / cracks or loose their glasses
  • Children who feel uncomfortable with eye glasses
  • Children who’s myopia keep increasing yearly
  • Parent’s who wants to control the rate of myopia increase
  • Kids who are active in sports and finds wearing glasses a nuisance.

Never mind, it may benefit my grandchildren or other kids with myopia. You can bet your life that I will let my children and grandchildren any parents with kids that may benefits from Ortho-K knows about it.

Wants to know more? Consult the Damansara Utama Ortho-K specialist, Ryan Ho, the optometrist and boss of Malaya Optical.
