5th Anniversary

Today marks our 5th anniversary. This year is a little unique. We did not buy each other gifts nor write each other a card. Instead we bought a card together and both of us will write in the same card.

We had a buffet lunch at Carosel at Royal Plaza. It is S$45 per pax during a weekend lunch and we get to redeem S$10 worth of carpark fees which is equivalent to about 3 hours of parking at Royal Plaza.

Windows 7 has officially been launch in Singapore at midnight on 22nd October 2009. The launch was collaborated between Microsoft Singapore and Challenger Funan. The first person in the queue started queuing at 3.30pm and only at 7pm they started giving out the queue number. At about 10.30pm, there was about 140+ people in the queue, but I think it eventually went up to 200 before midnight.

The first 177 customers gets to buy Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Edition at S$77 (RRP: S$219). After that, a limited number of customers can purchase it at S$147 during the launch event.

Bought the Sony ICF-C1iPMK2 for S$157. The retail price is S$179 but after the member discount it is S$159. And after deducting off the carpark claim of S$2, it became S$157.

It fits my iPhone 3GS well. You do not need a iPhone 3G Universal Dock Adapter because there is a support at the back which you can adjust so that your iPhone 3GS can lie on it comfortably.

Citibank’s Mobile Banking Platform went live on the 14th August 2009. Unlike OCBC or Maybank where they chose to have a native iPhone app for their mobile banking, Citibank chooses a web based approach. Instead, you can add the bookmark icon on your home screen for quicker access similar to the native iPhone application.

The platform consists of two services, namely Citi Mobile and Citi Alerts.
