Dash microSD & Dash SD Card Reader

I backed the Dash microSD and SD Card Reader on Kickstarter on 16th November 2015. The project was funded on 1st December 2015 after raising a total of US$11,492 out of their initial goal of US$10,000 from 717 backers.

I chose the US$22 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another US$3 (despite it stating US$2). So in total, I paid US$25 (S$36).

FiftyThree Pencil Stylus

Li Xiang has been drawing a lot on the free FiftyThree’s Paper iOS app lately. That is because she is designing for our new house which is going to start renovation after Lunar New Year (8th February 2016).

I knew about the FiftyThree Pencil when it was launched back in November 2013. I figured that Pencil should work very well with Paper, much better than a normal stylus.

Bluelounge Posto Headphone Stand

The Bluelounge Posto is the Bluelounge’s version of a headphone stand. It comes in three pieces and hence a one-time assembly is required. It comes in two colors, Black or White.

I bought mine from Paragon Department store located inside Siam Paragon in Bangkok, Thailand, for TH฿750 (S$30).

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is retailing for S$118 in Singapore but I got mine in Bangkok, Thailand, from iStudio at Siam Paragon for TH฿3,300 (S$131). It is S$13 more expensive than Singapore. Even after the VAT refund of ฿215 (S$8.50), it is still more expensive.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is smaller (measuring at 10.4cm in diameter) and much heavier than I expected (weighing at 154g).
