Our Play & Work From Home Setup 2024

Four years have passed since my last Our Play & Work From Home Setup 2020. COVID-19 came and passed. I have moved to a more central location in Singapore as commuting from my previous home is horrendous.

So, I wanted a post to update our play and work setup at our new home.

Belkin BoostCharge Pro 140W 4-Port GaN Wall Charger (With US, EU, UK Tips)

In my previous post on Belkin BoostCharge Pro 140W 4-Port GaN Wall Charger, I mentioned that it would be good if I can swap out the UK plug for other countries plugs so that it could be used for travel.

I think Belkin has gotten lots of feedback about this and has launched another version with interchangeable tips included. I don’t know why Belklin called it tips instead of plugs, but I shall refer it to tips for consistency. They mean the same thing.

Happy 40th Birthday To Me

I celebrated my 40th birthday yesterday with my family as I reached the mid-point of my life. The average life expectancy for males in Singapore is 80.7 in 2022. So, in gaming terms, if you started the game with 100% health, you are now down to 50% health remaining.

This phase of my life is to enjoy life as much as possible. Travel when I can walk, eat while I have teeth, and buy things I like while still working.

Apex+ Wireless Gaming Mice Review

Apex+ might be an unfamiliar brand to many. But you might have heard of the brand Ulti before. They are probably one of the top stores on Lazada and Shopee selling monitor arms, stands, and TV mounts. All my monitor arms and TV mounts are from Ulti.

So, Apex+ is a gaming peripheral brand by Ulti. Their first product is wireless gaming mice, and they have two: Apex+ Xtreme Wireless Gaming Mouse and Apex+ Evolution Wireless Gaming Mouse.
