Ulanzi U-PAD III Metal iPad Tripod Mount

Bought the Ulanzi U-PAD III Metal iPad Tripod Mount from Lazada for S$41.67 during 12/12. The recommended retail price is S$49.90.

The Ulanzi U-PAD III Metal iPad Tripod Mount is an all-metal aluminum alloy body tripod mount. It is very well-built and feels premium and solid.

Rode PSA1+

Rode PSA1+ is a microphone/boom arm from Rode. I got it from Red Dot Photo on Lazada during 12/12 for S$141.32. The usual selling price should be about S$169.

I was using a cheap China OEM microphone arm that I bought it together with my Rode NT-USB Mini, and it is pretty bad. You can only rotate the arm if you do not tighten the clamp; even so, the rotation is not smooth. The screws protruding near the clamp area will scratch your table, which was my deal breaker. Given the price, I would say it is ok. But in my case, I would rather pay more to get a quality microphone arm instead. So that is why I went ahead and got the Rode PSA1+.

Rode NT-USB Mini

I always wanted to get a microphone for the cool of it since I don’t do podcasts or streaming. The primary use case for me is just for Zoom/Slack calls.

Since I wanted to buy “something” for Black Friday, I decided to get the Rode NT-USB Mini instead of Blue Yeti because the later is outdated and still using mini-USB as the port.

Logitech MX Master 3S Wireless Mouse

It so happens that the scroll wheel of my five years old Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse spoiled just a few days before one of the greatest sale day, the Singles Day (11/11).

Technically, it is not spoiled, but the scroll wheel is forever in free-spinning mode, aka the clicky/ratcheting is not working when the SmartShift button is being pressed. There is an article on how to fix it, but it seems the fix is not permanent. It will come back within a month, probably due to the spring being loose due to its age. You will need to tear the mouse’s feet to access the screws every time you fix it.

Omron Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor (JPN500)

Signs you are getting older is when you need to get a blood pressure monitor after your annual health checkup. I went for my annual health checkup on 8th July 2022, and the doctor mentioned that my blood pressure was slightly above the normal range.

Based on HealthHub.sg, I fall under the High-Normal BP range and doctor ask me to watch my salt intake.
