When I first got my iPhone 3G back in 2008, I searched high and low for the dock adapter for my universal dock. I could not find it on Apple Singapore Online Store or in any authorized Apple Reseller Shops.

I only got it a year after (in 2009) when I went to Taiwan for my graduate trip and I saw it selling in an authorized Apple Reseller Shop.

When I first saw the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (S$38) available from Apple Singapore online store, the shipping estimate was 2-3 weeks. But regardless, I still went ahead and bought it together with my brother’s Apple iPad Case (S$58).

I went ahead and place my order on 27th July 2010, to my surprise the next day I received an email saying both items have been shipped and I received it today via DHL.

I want an Apple 16GB iPad WiFi + 3G version, tried ordering from comGateway, but my order got rejected the next day because of overwhelming response. I briefly mention about it to my colleague, Alon, and he said I could just order it online from Apple Store and ship it to his house and he will bring it to Singapore the next time he comes.

So I did just that! Ordered on 22nd April 2010, status change to “Prepared to Ship” on 1st May 2010 and was shipped on the 7th May 2010.

I love my Dell 2408WFP Monitor because it has not 1 but 2 DVI ports! This allows me to connect to my Windows desktop as well as to my MacBook Pro without physically switching the DVI cables from my monitor.

As I have been using Mac a lot during office hours, I wanted the same setup I have in my office at home which is 1 external monitor and dual screen it with my MacBook Pro. In order not to clutter my desk with too many items, I bought the Apple Wireless Keyboard for S$98 and together with my Apple Magic Mouse paired using bluetooth to my MacBook Pro, I am able to have both Mac and Windows environment with just a single monitor but having 2 separate sets of keyboard and mouse.

Ordered a 21.5″ iMac (3.06GHz) for my dad to replace his old computer (which is also my previous desktop computer). Actually suppose to order 2 sets. One for my Dad to put it at home and the other for my mom to replace her old Fujitsu laptop in the office. However, my mom got some doubts about the Mac OS X and software compatibility issues and hence ended up getting 1 set for my dad first. In the mean time she can play around with it at home before making a final decision.

Since I am still technically a student, I made use of the Education Store and hence it is cheaper by S$100. The iMac cost S$1,688. I also topped up another S$218 for Apple Care so that the warranty will get extended by another 2 years.

Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard is now available. You can get it at the Apple Singapore Store for S$48. Pre-ordered mine on the 26th August 2009 and received it yesterday, 28th August 2009, at about 10am, couriered by DHL.

One advantage living close to DHL’s Keppel’s Distribution Center is that my house will always be the first stop which means I always get it at 10am. Tested and proven by me many times. I even asked the courier guy from DHL and he says that my house will always be the first stop when they plan the route.
