The OPPO flagship store is located at 8 Temasek Boulevard, Suntec City Mall, Tower 3, #01-627, Singapore 038983 and it opens from 10am to 10pm daily.

Today I learned (TIL) that OPPO started out selling Blu-ray players, then they moved on to high-end audio products and now they are making mobile phones.

Lightning Rabbit Cables

· · · Cable

Lightning Rabbit is an alternative to Juicies+ Cables. They also produce fabric wound cable with sleek and polished aluminium ends.

They have three types of cable now: Apple Lightning to USB (Lightning Rabbit), Apple 30-pin Connector to USB (Old Skool Rabbit) and Micro USB to USB (Micro Rabbit)

They have three colours available for each variant (Silver, Orange and Purple). For the Lightning Rabbit, it is retailing for USD$20 (SGD$26) while the Old Skool Rabbit and Micro Rabbit cost USD$15 (SGD$20) each. International Shipping is an additional USD$6.75 (SGD$9).

There is only one length available for the cables which is 5 foot (1.5m).

I am not too sure whether they are using MFi certified lightning connectors because it was not mentioned on their website. However, I am not getting any “This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably” error when I am using it to charge my iPhone 6 Plus.

The event will feature an array of international gourmet delights like oyster bars, meat carving statins, extensive selection of beers, ciders and wines. Cold Storage also brought in new potato chip labels such as Herr’s from United States, Torres from Spain and Vintage Italia from United Kingdom.

I am not really a fan of alcohol, so the beers, ciders and wines doesn’t really entice me, but do check out the chips! My new favourite chip brand is now Herr’s!
