Bought a pack of 2 Taiyo 3-Pin Plug Adapters from Challenger at Funan for S$14.90 (after 10% member’s discount is S$13.41). I like it because it has individual switch to control power to each of the 3 3-pin sockets.
I find it weird that some countries do not have the concept of switching off an individual switch on a power strip but rather leaving all the switches always on, if you look at Belkin Surge Protectors, there is no on/off switch available.
Bought 2 Bluelounge CableBoxes when I was in Hong Kong and did not have the chance to fully utilize it. For the past few days, I have been packing my room and tidying my cables and I just realized I need another 2 more CableBoxes, so I got 2 more from Challenger at Funan for S$49 (after member discount is S$44.10) each. I chose the black color this time round.
As you know by now, I am a huge fan of Bluelounge products, my latest purchase from them this time round is the CableClip. I got all 3 sizes (Small, Medium & Large) from Challenger at Funan. Each cost S$16.90 and after 10% member’s discount, it cost S$15.21. I have to say these clips are pretty expensive, but I think of it as supporting a company that makes great products!
The Bluelounge CableBox is the first Bluelounge product that I bought. I bought it when I was in Hong Kong back in April 2011 for HK$288 (~S$45.67) at city’super. Too bad they only have white color over there.
Got the Bluelounge Nest for S$19.90 (Member’s Price: S$17.91) from Challenger. I think Challenger or the agent in Singapore only brought in the Black and White variant as I can’t seem to find the rest of the colors (Blue / Green / Orange / Pink) at Challenger but I saw it at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard.
Windows 7 has officially been launch in Singapore at midnight on 22nd October 2009. The launch was collaborated between Microsoft Singapore and Challenger Funan. The first person in the queue started queuing at 3.30pm and only at 7pm they started giving out the queue number. At about 10.30pm, there was about 140+ people in the queue, but I think it eventually went up to 200 before midnight.
The first 177 customers gets to buy Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Edition at S$77 (RRP: S$219). After that, a limited number of customers can purchase it at S$147 during the launch event.
