It was my first time to Shanghai, China, for a business trip, and I decided to pop by the Mi Store (小米之家) at Pearl of the Orient (东方明珠).
Bought the third generation of the Xiaomi Mi 10,000mAh Power Bank from Lazada during their mid-year festival flash sale where it retails for just S$19.90 down from their normal price of S$28. Shipping within Singapore is an additiona S$1.49.
The official retail price of the power bank in China is CN¥129 (S$26).
Bought the Ugreen Silicone Case for Apple AirPods from Lazada for S$4.15 during Lazada mid-year festival sale. The usual retail price is S$5.19. Shipping to Singapore is free on their Saver delivery option where it will take 13 to 16 days to reach you.
As the name of the product suggests, the case is made from silicone, and there are three colors to choose from, red, black, and dark blue. I picked black.
AirPods with Wireless Charging Case retails for S$299 and AirPods with Charging Case retails for S$239. So to be able to charge your AirPods case wirelessly via Qi, it cost an extra S$60.
Minix Neo Storage is a USB-C hub with built-in and non-removable SSD storage. There are two storage capacities available, 120GB and 240GB.
Apple’s second official retail store in Singapore and first airport store in the world, Apple Jewel Changi Airport, open its door today, 13th July 2019 at 10 am. The store opening hours are from 10 am to 10 pm daily.
If you are the first few in the queue, you will be given a commemorative Apple t-shirt that is made in the USA.
There are two sizes of the Everyday Backpack, 20L, and 30L. The 20L retails for US$259.95 (S$353) while the 30L retails for US$289.95 (S$393).
Peak Design Field Pouch retails for US$39.95 (S$55). Minimum shipping cost to Singapore from Peak Design is US$9.95 (S$14). They ship to Singapore from their warehouse in Hong Kong.
The Peak Design Field Pouch is available in four colors, Black, Charcoal, Ash, and Tan. I bought the Charcoal because it is their flagship color. Black is too dull while Ash and Tan get dirty quickly.
I always wanted to find a short MFi certified USB-C to Lightning cable to be used together with a USB-C power bank.
I like short cables for power banks instead of the default 1 m cable as there is less wire dangling.
The main difference between them is the width of the strap. The biggest of the lot is Slide, which is for DSLR. Slide Lite is for smaller DSLR and mirrorless cameras while the smallest of the lot, Leash, is meant for smaller cameras.
