Bought the Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown) from the Apple’s Fifth Avenue store because I have to get something from that iconic flagship store! It is just slightly cheaper than Singapore if you pay by cash. Over there, it is retailing for US$39 + US$3.46 (NYC 8.875% tax) = US$42.46 (S$54), whereas in Singapore it is retailing for S$58.
I got the brown to match my Apple iPad Air Smart Case (Brown)!
The Apple iPad Air Smart Case retails in Singapore for S$118 and there are 6 colors to choose from (Brown, Beige, Black, Yellow, Blue & Red). It is made up of aniline-dyed leather. Since I am using the silver iPad Air, I chose the color Brown! I think Brown or Red will go well with the Silver iPad Air.
The smart case is very well build since it comes from Apple and hence all the holes are aligned perfectly well with the iPad Air. It does add a little bit of bulk and weight to the iPad Air but is still acceptable for me.
The Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag is available in 2 sizes, the medium and the large. For the medium, there are 5 designs and for the large, there are 3 designs.
The build of this case is solid because the backplate is made up of aluminium and the case itself is made up of polycarbonate.
Bought the Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack together with the Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag from Timbuk2 Singapore Store because I have a one-time media discount of 30%. The Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack is retailing for S$169 and after the 30% discount, I paid S$118.30.
The Phoenix Cycling Backpack is just available in 1 size which is medium and there are 3 designs you can choose from, nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon, nylon gunmetal / revlon red / revlon red or nylon black.
Since I already have a Custom Laptop Messenger Bag (Small) and I am not a fan of big bags, I chose the Custom Classic Messenger Bag (Extra Small) which fits an iPad.
Ozaki O!coat 0.3+Pocket is an extremely thin (0.3mm) and lightweight (9g) case that is made using polypropylene.
The back of the case is leather textured and it has a card holder slot that holds one credit card (at most two). If you don’t like putting your credit card there, you can use it to hold reminders written on small pieces of paper (which is what my mom is doing) and I find that is a great idea! If not you can use it to hold up name cards or your EZ-Link/Octopus/Oyster card.
Timbuk2 opens its first in-store customisation outside of the United States right here in Singapore. The Timbuk2 Singapore store officially opens yesterday, 31st October 2013 and is located at #03-26A Bugis Junction (200 Victoria Street, Singapore 188021). The opening hours are from 10.30am to 10pm daily.
The Singapore retail store measures 280 sq ft and will showcase 75% of its product line of more than 100 styles of bags and accessories from the United States. There is an interactive custom station where you can design your custom bags or accessories made to order in the Timbuk2 San Francisco factory. It takes about 2 weeks from the moment you order till you get your bag.
This is my first time using the Power Support – Air Jacket Set (Clear) for iPhone 5/5s. I got it when I was in Thailand from Siam Paragon for TH฿990 (S$40). It is selling for S$59.90 in Singapore, and in case you are wondering, the one I got in Thailand is definitely original.
Despite this being a set which comes with one Power Support anti-glare screen film and one crystal film, I am not using it on my phone. Instead I am using the Spigen Screen Protector GLAS.t NANO SLIM for iPhone 5/5c/5s (next blog post).
