Today went to the only official Timbuk2 Retail Store in San Francisco located at 506 Hayes Street! The staff there are very friendly and service rendered is excellent. Got myself 4 bags!
Gotten another Crumpler pouch for my US trip next Sunday, this time is the Crumpler Pouch – Haven (M). This is the limited edition print and is retailing for S$79. As it is limited edition, no 10% discount is applicable.
I bought this pouch to place my Canon 50D (with 18-200mm lens) in it so that the camera can be place in my backpack and still being protected.
Saw the Crumpler Dry Red No. 2 a couple of months back, but it was out of stock island-wide. So when the stock came back in last week, I immediately went down and bought it. I went to VivoCity but they did not have a new piece, so they reserved a new piece for me at their Raffles City branch.
Crumpler Singapore is very active on their Facebook Page, it is so easy to check on stocks and prices, just post on their wall, and they will get back to you within 48 hours! Thumbs up for their customer engagement!
Bluelounge Milo is a mobile phone stand but with a twist! It has a micro suction area that allows you to place your mobile phone in any desired angle! For my case, if I am resting my iPhone on it vertically, it just leans against the back. However, I also can place it horizontally because the micro suction will hold on my iPhone without the need for it to rest of any base.
The Bluelounge Milo cost US$14.95 (S$18.90).
Fabrix launches Fifth October iPhone case as a tribute to Steve Jobs who passed away on the 5th October 2011. The case cost US$10 (S$12.70). Shipping within Singapore via Registered Mail cost an additional US$3 (S$3.80). I ordered on the 18th October 2011 and I received it on 24th October 2011. But now due to overwhelming orders, the waiting time is at least 3 to 4 days before your order is processed.
Description Of The Fabrix Fifth October iPhone Case
Bought the Case-Mate Waddler Penguin Case (Black) For iPhone 4/4S (Amazon link) from Amazon for Li Xiang as her birthday present! She likes penguin and I can’t find any penguin iPhone cases beside this one from Case-Mate.
It cost US$24.99 (S$31.63) and shipping to Singapore is an additional US$7 (S$8.85), and hence I paid a total of US$31.99 (S$40.49) for it. I ordered on 5th October 2011 but due to it being out of stock after I placed my order, I only received it on 24th October 2011.
3 months ago, PayPal Singapore did an very interesting video for me regarding my SwitchEasy CoverBuddy for iPad 2 purchase. It was a massive effort by the team and the costs involved must be huge as each blogger’s video is different and there are 20 bloggers! Kudos to you guys!
Just in case you miss it, here is the video again:
The shipping cost is about US$4.15 (~S$5) via USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). This shipping method is the cheapest but it is delivered via normal mail when it reaches Singapore as it does not come with a tracking number. Also my box is a little bit damage, but at just S$5 for shipping, I can’t really complain much. My item was shipped on 20th August 2011 and I received it on 8th September 2011 (about 20 days).
Got the Bluelounge SpaceStation from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$127.35. I have not seen the SpaceStation sold elsewhere yet, if I do come across, I will update this post accordingly.
This SpaceStation should complete my Bluelounge collection for the time being. I ordered Bluelounge MiniDock and Bluelounge Extra Connectors online and still waiting for it to arrive sometime in mid September. I have yet to order Bluelounge Kicks as I want to wait for my previous shipment to come first before deciding to order again.
Bought the Bluelounge The Sanctuary from EpiCentre at Ion Orchard for S$189 and after a 10% member’s discount it cost S$170.10. The first time I saw the The Sanctuary was back in December 2009 when I was in Hong Kong at city’super. It was the Dark Wood variant.
So far I have only saw The Sanctuary selling at EpiCentre at Ion Orchard, I have not seen other shops carrying it yet. I think there is at least 5 of them there when I got it last week. They only carry the Black variant.
