Fabrix Utility Pouch

Ordered the Black Denim Utility Pouch from Fabrix Cases together with my Fabrix Sleeve For iPhone 5. Paid US$29.90 (S$36.67) for the utility pouch and an additional US$6 (S$7.35) for shipping via SingPost Registered Mail (within Singapore) for both items. Bought it on the 24th September 2012, shipped on the 26th September 2012 and I received the items on 28th September 2012.

Since my order is above US$50 (US$29.90 + US$21.90), I am entitled to the coupon FABRIX5OFF50, which gives me US$5 off and in total. Ended up, I paid US$51.80 + US$6 = US$57.80 (S$70.89) in total for both the Fabrix Sleeve For iPhone 5 & Fabrix Utility Pouch.

Fabrix Sleeve For iPhone 5

Ordered the Neutral Pack Grey Sleeve for my iPhone 5 from Fabrix Cases. Paid US$21.90 (S$26.85) for it.

It fits the iPhone 5 precisely to the point that it is a little too tight and hence removing the phone from the pouch is difficult. I hope after some season usage, it will be improve.

Western Digital My Passport Carrying Case

Bought the Western Digital My Passport Carrying Case from Changi City Point’s Challenger for S$9.90 (member’s price is S$8.90).

I am using the My Passport Essential (2011) and Li Xiang is using the My Passport Essential (2012) and the carrying case fits the harddrive just fine along with the USB cable.

Infinite Loop Tablet And Smartphone Stand

Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand was my 3rd project backed on Kickstarter and I think so far this is the only project that I am pretty disappointed with. The build and quality of it are just horrible.

For the unaware, Infinite Loop Tablet and Smartphone Stand as the name suggests is a coil-like stand that you can twist and turn to your liking and it will hold up your mobile devices using a suction cup (Infinite Loop Smartphone Stand). The Infinite Loop Tablet Stand on the other hand allows you to rest your tablet on its pre-molded u-shaped base (instead of suction cup).

Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25

When I first got my Cocoon Grid-It last July, it was from Amazon. That was before ESA Distribution Pte Ltd brought it to Singapore. Now you can find it in Singapore pretty easily. I saw it selling at Kinokuniya, NBC Stationary, Takashimaya (level 3), Cumulus, etc.

This time round, I got the Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25 from Takashimaya for S$19.95. I compared the price in Singapore and it is about the same as Amazon when you factor in the shipping cost. For the Cocoon Grid-It – 7.25 x 9.25, Amazon is selling it for US$14.29 and the shipping to Singapore alone cost more than the item (US$14.86).

Chef Sleeve For iPad

I was sent the Chef Sleeve (for iPad) for review all the way from the US. The Chef Sleeve is essentially a transparent plastic bag that you can place your iPad in when you are using it in the kitchen when cooking or baking.

This ensure that your iPad will not be dirtied by the grease on your finger or flour on the table when you need to use it in the kitchen (for checking recipes online or even watching YouTube for cooking/baking tutorial).

Crumpler Sleeve – The Fug (13 Inch MacBook Air)

Brought Crumpler’s The Fug (Black) which is a very slim neoprene sleeve for my 13″ MacBook Air from Paragon‘s Crumpler store, it cost S$55, but if you are a CitiBank credit card holder, you enjoy a 10% discount. I ended up paying S$49.50 for it.

I was contemplating between this and the SwitchEasy’s Thins, but ended up I went for this instead because:

Fabrix Case For Google Nexus

Ordered the Black Suite Fabrix Case for my Google Nexus from Fabrix Cases. It is a custom size since they do not have it readily available and hence I paid US$26.90 for it and an additional US$3 registered mail shipping within Singapore.

I was very impressed by how well it fits my naked iPhone 4S when I ordered the Fabrix Fifth October iPhone Case and hence I decided to get one as well for my Google Nexus.
