I was waiting for the rumored Apple AirPods Studio to be announced as I intended to get it. But after Apple announces the AirPods Max, I went ahead and bought the
Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones instead.
At S$849, AirPods Max is not targeted at regular consumers. I am not an audiophile by any extent, so I would not spend that much money on headphones.

My first 11/11 purchase for 2019,
Sony PS4 Pro God of War / The Last of Us Remastered Bundle.
The official retail price is S$619 on
Lazada, but on 11/11, it drops further to S$559. On top of that, Sony Store on Lazada is throwing in an S$50 voucher for a minimum spend of S$500. To make the deal even sweeter, I have an S$10 Lazada voucher, and I paid using UOB, which gives me an additional S$10 discount. Sony PS4 Pro God of War / The Last of Us Remastered Bundle – Box Front

I always wanted to get the
Sony E 30mm F3.5 Macro Lens (SEL30M35) ever since I bought the Sony NEX-3N from Amazon last year to do some closed-up product shots.
The SEL30M35 is retailing for
S$399 in Singapore but I learned that it is much cheaper in Japan. Sony E 30mm F3.5 Macro Lens – Box

I always wanted a
GoPro camera, but I can’t justify spending so much money on a extreme-action video camera because I might not use it often.
I saw the
Sony HDRAS20 Action Video Camera and Sony 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC R40 Memory Card being sold as a bundle on Amazon for US$97 (S$128). It is not Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day but rather sort of a pre-black Friday deal. I bought it because it was a very good deal despite it does not ship to Singapore directly.
