I bought the Nubee Temperature Gun from Amazon for US$13.59 (S$20) together with the Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure. It also doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The Nubee temperature gun is a non-contact digital laser infrared thermometer that lets you obtain a temperature reading of a surface such as stoves, ovens, food and fish tanks.

I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.

Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.

SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets

Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of it’s tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.

There are two variants for the SoundTeoh Tower Socket. One is this and the other is the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 8 Outlets And 2 USB Ports and it costs S$89.90. A good thing about the included USB ports is the combined output of 4.2A which makes it capable of outputting 2.1A per port. Personally, I find it is not worth an additional S$20 if you have a couple of multiple USB port chargers lying around like the Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger or the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger.

Tool Pen is a smart & versatile multi-tool, like holding a sleek pen. It features an unique Pop-A-Point design for bits replacement.

I backed Tool Pen on Kickstarter on the 9th July 2014 and it was funded successfully on 14th August 2014 after raising US$274,794 out of their initial goal of just US$7,000. That is 40 times the goal.

My current doorbell at home has lasted me for 28 years (since 1985) and hence I got a new SoundTeoh No. 77 Wireless Doorbell from Funan’s Challenger for S$28.60 (member’s price: S$25.74).

28 years later, it seems technology also changes doorbell. There are so many types right now: wireless, wired, AC powered, battery powered, mp3 (using SD card) and 20 built-in tones.

The Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp (AR3200) is retailing for S$318 at Challenger (Funan) as well as some other stationary shops. I recommend getting it from Challenger (Funan) as they offer a 10% member’s discount and after the discount is cost S$286.20. Do note that it is only available at Challenger (Funan) and not at other Challenger branches.

In Singapore, it is being distributed by Bridgemen, of course you can get it online directly from them and they deliver to you for free.
