Happy 30th Birthday To Me

· · · Blog

Yesterday was my 30th birthday! The big 30! I am no longer in the 20+ years old range =(

Sydney Trip
Just came back from Sydney, Australia after spending a week there for holidays with Li Xiang! Sydney is a good place to retire but generally prices there are so much more expensive than Singapore (maybe except for houses and cars). I got a shocked when I paid AUD$20 for a 2-hour parking!

We stayed in Surry Hills at an Airbnb Aparment because hotels there are so expensive. A decent hotel cost more than SGD$200 per night but with Airbnb, I only paid SGD$120 per night.

We love Surry Hills, there are so many cafes there with good coffee and breakfast! We tried Pieno, Bills, Bangbang, Single Origin Roasters and Bourke Street Bakery.

Crumpler Bag – Milonas

Li Xiang got me the Crumpler Bag – Milonas (SGD$45) for Valentine’s Day this year. Thanks Dear!

I love bags! So if you want to get me something, you will never go wrong with a Crumpler or a Timbuk2 bag.

With the Crumpler Milonas, you will be able to fit in any generation of iPads in the main slot and an external Bluetooth keyboard like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover or a flat portable battery charger like the Panasonic – USB Portable Power 10,260mAh (QE-QL301) in the other slot.

The Crumpler Milonas is made up of lightweight and soft but durable materials. It is weather resistant as well.

It measures 28cm (Width) x 23cm (Height) x 4 cm (Depth) and weighs only 150g.

SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive

SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive was announced last month and it is SanDisk’s first dual USB drive.

The 16GB retails for SGD$20, 32GB for SGD$35 and 64GB for SGD$60.

The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive is designed for Android smartphone and tablet users who need an easy way to move content such as photos and videos from their mobile devices. The drive allows users to safely store and backup files, free-up space, or simply transfer multimedia between their smartphones, tablets and computers.

To use the dual USB drive on your Android devices, just ensure that your Android device supports USB on-the-go (OTG). You can find out whether your Android device supports OTG by installing the app USB OTG Checker.

SanDisk also released a free companion Android app called SanDisk’s Memory Zone which allows you to better organize (viewing, copying and backup) files stored in your phone.

Simple Wallet

Simple Wallet is a Kickstater project that was successfully funded last March after raising USD$19,587 out of their USD$10,000 initial goal.

There is also Simple Wallet 2.0 which was even more successful after raising USD$80,369 out of their initial goal of USD$10,000.

I received Simple Wallet thanks to @DaryoushFar who is the Founder and CEO of Simple Wallet.

The quality of the Simple Wallet is much better than the Crabby Wallet that I backed on Kickstarter. I like the fact that the elastic cloth and leather is thick enough to reduce daily wear and tear usage.

I can fit in about 3 credit cards in the front slot and about 5 name cards in the middle slot. I think it requires a bit of seasoning before it can fit more cards!

The only complain with it is that the edges are too pointy. It would be good if it is curved.
