This site got a revamped back in April 2020, and in its current iteration, it is version 5.

Smart Home
The only change I did in 2020 was to slowly replaced all my spoiled MCO Z-Wave switches to Sonoff T2UK Wi-Fi Smart Wall Switch. So far, I have already replaced three out of ten, one 4-gang, one 2-gang, and one 1-gang.

Gadgets/Tech
I finally got a new desktop computer based on AMD Ryzen 7 3700X for playing games.

I waited for Apple to come out with their own headphones. However, when they announced the AirPods Max, it is way too expensive. So I went ahead and bought the Sony WH-1000XM4 instead.

Apple
The third Apple Store in Singapore opened in Marina Bay Sands on Thursday, 10th September 2020 at 10 am. Because of COVID, there is no t-shirt this time around.

Upgrade from iPhone 11 Pro Max to iPhone 12 Pro Max and bought the Apple MagSafe Charger to go with it.

Travel
I went to Japan for skiing in February 2020 and came back before all the COVID shit happens in Singapore.

What I Said In 2019

I think I will have a very busy 2020 since I just changed my job, and the new job requires all of us to ramp up in 2020.

The workload in 2020 is alright, but it will be a busy 2021 given the roadmap planned.

I don’t have many gadgets that I am trying to buy. I might want to get an Apple HomePod if available in Singapore and Apple AirPods Pro if there is a discount on Apple’s Employee Purchase Plan (EPP).

Although HomePod Mini is launched in 2020, no models of HomePod are available in Singapore.

For 2021
I am hoping to see the successor to Nest Hub and Nest Cam in 2021.

I also foresee more MCO Z-Wave switches will die as it hits the 5-year mark, and I will replace them with Sonoff Wi-Fi switches.

The design for iPhone 13 will remain the same as iPhone 12, but maybe with a 120Hz screen, and hence the notch is still here to stay.

Third-year in a row, I am hoping that Apple Homepod will be available in Singapore.

I don’t think we will see a 4th Apple Store in Singapore anytime soon.

We will still feel the impact of COVID. I don’t think leisure travel will be possible in 2021, although we will be vaccinated by Q3 2021.

I would like to wish all my readers, visitors, and supporters a Happy New Year 2021! Stay safe and healthy!
