Bought the Etekcity Digital Kitchen Timer from Amazon when they are having a discount for Black Friday. It comes in a pack of two and it costs US$10.79 (S$16) when I bought it. It now retails for US$12.99 (S$19).

It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so I shipped it to HopShopGo together with my other purchases and got them to ship to Singapore for me.

Li Xiang has been drawing a lot on the free FiftyThree’s Paper iOS app lately. That is because she is designing for our new house which is going to start renovation after Lunar New Year (8th February 2016).

I knew about the FiftyThree Pencil when it was launched back in November 2013. I figured that Pencil should work very well with Paper, much better than a normal stylus.

I got my hands on the Freefly VR thanks to my friend, Stephen. Freefly VR is a mobile VR headset that uses your mobile phone for the VR experience. The screen as the VR screen and your phone’s speaker for the audio.

This differs from normal VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and Razer OSVR because both of them have an in-built screen and audio system but relies on your computer for the VR experience.

Bought the Xiaomi LED Light for S$6.99 during the Mi Fan Festival 2015. There are two colors available, blue and white. I got both since the price is pretty reasonable.

The Xiaomi LED Light is a good alternative to your phone’s flashlight. Just plug it into a power bank and it can double up as a torchlight. The Xiaomi LED Light is diffused so they are easy on your eyes as well.
