they have. but its cheaper in taiwan.

-cos u can gain currency exchange advantage
-save on gst
-i cud be wrong, but in taiwan they seems to have more option in the lenses.
-frame wise, its also different.

cos after i was back from taiwan, i went to sg owndays ssrr. what i wan (lense) they dun offer in sg. then n again, my requirement is uncommon due to my condition, not applicable to general specs users

my exchange rate back then was 22.4. if i had use alipay it will be 23.4

Surely their options are more.
Singapore purchasers always get the leftovers.

Eh, Taiwan dun call it cyclone.
Nowadays even as early as May, can have typhoon right till end of October.
So if you want to travel, anything also good la.
You can siam typhoon, but you cannot predict Earthquakes.

lense quality wise soso nia. but for the price u are paying and if u are someone who like to change frame, owndays is good. ofc, if one hv "lobang" in china, china's digital lense is cheaper better and faster

the rest of the specs shops in taiwan, can be very cunning. so i would say stick to large franchise such as owndays.

ahh than which mth is gd?? summer ah?? or Spring (March – May)?

i think i going to faint.. their summer is super hot.


saw this online.
The best time to visit Taiwan is between April - June, and September - November, when the weather is pleasant, and the tourist season isn’t at its peak.

The high season in Taiwan is in July - August, but it might not the best time to travel to the country, as it can be incredibly hot and humid during these months, and the peak season means that the hotel rates will be hiked up

While December - March is the low season, this is when to visit Taiwan if you want to travel on a budget, as there will be great discounts all over the country.

avoid sept.

Weather
Try October-November/Jan-March
Usually this timing the temperature is cooling
(Went to tw last oct and last week)

$$$
You don’t need to bring a lot just about 500sgd for food and transport
Rest can use for omiyage for your friends and colleagues

Spring immediately after CNY or between 10-15th day of Lunar new year is good.
Because of the festivals and the weather.
Cannot go wrong with that.

Better to have more.
In case u need to have a shopping spree, that will come in handy.
Taiwan has no street money changer.
Only in banks or shopping malls.
Shopping malls rate are the most unfavourable.
