Brought Crumpler’s The Fug (Black) which is a very slim neoprene sleeve for my 13″ MacBook Air from Paragon‘s Crumpler store, it cost S$55, but if you are a CitiBank credit card holder, you enjoy a 10% discount. I ended up paying S$49.50 for it.

I was contemplating between this and the SwitchEasy’s Thins, but ended up I went for this instead because:

The Twelve South BookArc (Apple Store – Singapore link) which cost S$65 is my second birthday present from Li Xiang!

The Twelve South BookArc holds up the MacBook Air (2nd generation) upright which frees up table space if you are not using your MacBook Air’s screen as a secondary monitor. There is also a gap in the stand which allows the power cable to pass through.

When I first joined mig33 back on 1st February 2010, I got a brand new MacBook Pro 15″ (Mid 2009) running on Intel Core 2 Duo (2.66 GHz) and with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Over the years, my MacBook Pro became slower and slower as applications get more and more intensive and OS gets more and more resource demanding.

I made a couple of “complains” to my immediate supervisor and eventually he approved my Purchase Order (PO) to get a new MacBook.

Went over to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia over the weekend (Friday, 23rd March 2012 – Sunday, 25th March 2012) for my birthday celebration! Stayed at Piccolo Hotel located right in the heart of Bukit Bintang.

The location is fantastic, it is just in between Lot 10 Shopping Mall and Fahrenheit 88 and just 5 minutes walk from Pavilion. The price is pretty reasonable as well. Paid a total of MYR 566.08 (S$232) for 2 nights (S$116/night).

Placed my order for the Multifunction 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Adapter – Black from Deal Extreme on the 4th February 2012 and it arrived in my mailbox on the 5th March 2012, it took exactly a month for it to reach my home. Paid US$5 for it and with Deal Extreme, shipping is always free.

This 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Cable is similar to the Innergie Magic Cable – Multi-Tip USB Cable which I bought last month but it cost 50% lesser and it has support for Apple’s 30-pin connector.

Diablo III is coming on 15th May 2012. You can pre-purchase the digital version via Battle.net for S$90. The retail box pricing in Singapore and Malaysia is S$89 and RM$218 respectively.

If you are like me and prefer to own the collector edition’s (CE) physical box, you can get it from Amazon (Diablo III: Collector’s Edition) for about US$100 (S$126) and they do ship directly to Singapore for US$20 (S$25), so total cost including shipping would be US$120 (S$151).

Nothing much happened on the 4th day which is the last day of MWC, I did not go down to the conference because I will be flying back to Singapore that day.

Woke up at about 9am and went down for breakfast and went back up to my hotel room after that to get my stuff packed. I have requested for my transport to come at 2pm despite my flight is at 6.30pm as I wanted to claim tax refund (18%) and shop at Barcelona Airport!
