Happy 39th Birthday To Me

The last birthday before my age starts with the number 4. Looking back, I have blogged for more than 22 years. The first post on this site dates back to 24th March 2002, which is my 18th birthday.

Looking Back 2022

After almost two years plus on-and-off restrictions due to COVID-19, Singapore finally opened up slowly in the year’s second half, and mask-wearing became optional for most places. Finally, we are almost back to normal. I hope in 2023, mask-wearing will become optional on public transport.

Thanks to my ex-colleague, JayJay, for the link up, I got into Roborock’s Public relations (PR) list. They have sent me two Roborock cleaners for review, the Roborock Q7 Max and Roborock G10.

Apple Watch Edition Series 7 (45mm Space Black Titanium Case)

My Apple Watch Series 3 (42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case With Space Black Milanese Loop) is approaching its end of life soon as it passes the four-year mark. I expected Apple to discontinue the Apple Watch Series 3 this year (2021), but it lives to die another year.

If you are on the non-cellular Apple Watch Series 3, you will run into problems upgrading WatchOS because there is only 4GB of storage. Luckily, I am on cellular, and it comes with 8GB of storage, so I do not have this problem.

I upgraded both my DS920+ and DS1621+, and my current DSM version for both is DSM 6.2.4. After clicking download, it will prompt you to download a .pat file. The file size is about 340MB.
