Acronis True Image Unlimited Review

About Acronis
Do you know that Acronis is founded in Singapore in 2002 and they moved their HQ back to Singapore just last year?

Acronis was founded by Serguei Beloussov, Ilya Zubarev, and Max Tsyplyaev as a separate business unit within SWsoft and in 2003, Acronis was spun off as a separate company. Just a FYI, SWsoft is the parent company of Parallels, Inc (source: Wikipedia).

Looking Back 2014

In Looking Back 2013, I wanted to travel to Japan, but that didn’t happen. However, I am still on Holidays in Hong Kong for 13 days (22nd December 2014 – 3rd January 2015)!

For my 2014 resolution/wish, I think is time to save some money because of all the travelling! And to contradict my previous statement, maybe for the 2014 year end holidays, I hope to maybe travel to Tokyo, Japan.

Ikea 2015 Catalogue

Thanks to Ikea Singapore for sending me the awesomely designed limited edition XXL Ikea 2015 Catalogue.

When I first received it, I thought it was a MacBook since the design of the box is almost the same. Even when you unbox the catalogue, you can’t help but think of the similarity between this and the MacBook. I don’t think copy is a right word to use here, I would instead say Ikea spoof the packaging of a MacBook.
