Bought the PQI My Lockey USB Fingerprint Reader from Amazon Singapore for S$39.49. Shipping is free because I am an Amazon Singapore Prime member and combined with other orders to make it more than S$60.

As a best security practice, I have been using a different password for different sites. To avoid typing in complex passwords every time I am logging to Windows, I have been using a PIN.

After the 8% discount by Logitech and deducting Lazada’s S$12 voucher, HSBC S$20 voucher, I ended up paying just S$123.48. Shipping is free as I shipped it to a Ninja Point.

My computer is not switched on 24/7. Last Saturday, when I turn on my new computer, it causes my Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) to trip. This is the first time I encountered a trip in MCB. Typically, it is the Circuit Breaker inside my house that will be tripped.

Sadly, after that happened, I can no longer switch on my computer. I suspect my Power Supply Unit (PSU) is fried.

Thanks to the Peak Design Facebook User Group, I came to know that B&H Photo Video had a 24-hour sale on 25th February 2020 for the Peak Design Everyday Sling (5L) at their Deal Zone section. Only the Black and Ash colors are available.

It was an open box deal, which means it is like new with an open box. When I received it, it looks brand new too me, and I can’t tell the difference.
