Crumpler Bag – Seedy One

Crumpler Bag – Seedy One
· ·

I am a big fan of Crumpler and I got like 5 of their bags and 5 pouches. I have been eying on the remake of the Seedy One for a couple of months now and I finally got it last week. The retail price is S$169 but I got 10% discount for being a EpiCentre member. There is also a 10% discount if you are using DBS Live Fresh credit card as well. If you are using AMEX card, you also get a 10% discount but only at Orchard Ion’s branch. Paid S$152.10 for it after the discount.

I chose the black color and I think I took the last new piece in Singapore. When I went to the branch at Raffles City, they do not have a new piece and they help me called up other branches and only Wheelock have a piece left, so I went to Wheelock and got it. Thumbs up for the excellent service.

Losing Weight

Losing Weight
· ·

I started my goal of losing weight after I got my Nike + iPod Sport Kit with SwitchEasy Runaway. When I was in October 2010, I weigh 89kg and my goal was to be about 75kg before Chinese New Year which is in February 2011. Currently my weight is 78kg, I still got 3kg to go and 2 more weeks =D.

I started by running about 2.4km and try to completed it under 14 minutes. I did that for 3 times per week at the start, than slowly becoming 2 times per week due to my laziness! Sometimes on weekends, I will go for swimming as well, swimming between 15 to 20 laps per session.

I think the logo looks pretty nice. I think I will get the t-shirt!

An HTML5 Logo
It stands strong and true, resilient and universal as the markup you write. It shines as bright and as bold as the forward-thinking, dedicated web developers you are. It’s the standard’s standard, a pennant for progress. And it certainly doesn’t use tables for layout.

Bought the Magic Trackpad at iStudio located at Changi Airport Terminal 3 on Friday before I left for Jakarta, Indonesia. On the same day, Apple Singapore is having a Chinese New Year Sale. As there are no 7% tax at the airport, it amounts to about the same price as the CNY sale. Got it for S$91.59. In fact, if you are getting more expensive items like MacBook Pro or Air, it is even cheaper at the airport than during the CNY sale.

Li Xiang and I will be going to Jakarta, Indonesia tomorrow for the weekend to visit my secondary school friend Sugih and to meet Pei Jun there.

My iPhone 4 is as good as a paper weight when I go overseas because I can’t use data on it due to expensive data roaming. I always wanted to try SingTel’s Bridge DataRoam Unlimited but didn’t have chance to read up more about it. So for tomorrow’s trip, I decided to research a little.

A.C. Ryan Announces Playon!HD2 And Playon!HD Mini2

A.C. Ryan has announced new Playon!HD2 and Playon!HD Mini2 shortly after I got my Playon! HD back in November 2010! Damn!

I love the new features of the Playon!HD2 especially the upgraded wired networking to 10/100/1000Mbps because on Playon! HD, it is only 10/100Mbps and transfering files to it over LAN is taking forever! My home network is already on 10/100/1000Mbps wired with Cat6 RJ45 cables.

Verizon Wireless announced last night (12am SGT) that they will be selling the iPhone 4 as well in the US. The difference from AT&T and perhaps the rest of the world iPhone 4 is that it will be a CDMA version as opposed to a GSM version.

In terms of physical design, it is more or less the same with only three slight differences with the metal band surrounding the iPhone 4. See top, left and right view comparison.

Apple will be holding a one-day Chinese New Year Sale, This Friday, 14th January 2010.

If I am not mistaken, they held it once every year, instead of Black Friday in the US, we have a Red Chinese New Year in Singapore. I did not get anything from the 2010 sale. For the 2009 sale, I got the Belkin Auto Charger For iPod And iPhone.
