Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac was launched two weeks back on 16th August 2019 in Singapore. It brings support for macOS Catalina (10.15) and provides supports DirectX 11, 10 and 9 on Apple Metal API for improved graphics.
There are four main focus areas with Parallels Desktop 15:
I always wanted to get the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones also known as Bose QC15 in short because it is one of the best noise cancelling headphones in the market. It is good specially when you travel a lot! Be it via plane or by bus, the QC15 will be able to cancel out some noises produce from the vehicle’s engines. I also heard from my colleagues that it is a life saver in the plane when you have a crying child on board.
I did not get the Bose QC15 in Singapore because it is way overpriced. The official retail price is S$479.
I passed my MacBook Pro 15″ to my brother and will be using my work MacBook Pro 15″ as my “official” laptop and hence I will need to bring it around from my work place back to home and vice versa and needed a bag to hold it.
I am using Fabrix Case‘s MacBook Pro sleeve previously but that sleeves requires one of my hand to hold on to it and since the MacBook Pro is so heavy, I can’t use the hand to hold other stuff while securing my MacBook Pro tight. So I decided to go for a proper working bag which can fit my MacBook Pro as well as some accessories.
Received my Apple MacBook Pro 2.53GHz yesterday from TNT after ordering it from Apple Store on the 16th October 2008. Apparently TNT only has 2 time slot for me to choose for the delivery which is during office hours (9am till 6pm) or night delivery (7pm to 10pm).

As the title of this post says, I have updated this site to WordPress 1.5. It is the smoothest upgrade I have ever been through. No errors or major mishaps at all, just some very minor cosmetic bugs. If you found any errors, please drop me an email or post it in the forum. I have made a habit of reading my forums once every 2 days =)
WordPress 1.5 had been released a few days back, it is quite a major release comparing it with 1.0->1.2. This site runs on WordPress 1.2 and I will definitely upgrade it to 1.5 if I have the time to hack all my plugins to 1.5 compatible and the problem is that there are quite alot of them.
