Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop

Bought the Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop strap for S$218 from Apple Online Store (Singapore) because the 42mm Milanese Loop is sold out at all authorised Apple Resellers.

Placed my order last Thursday, 2nd July 2015 and I received it this Tuesday, 7th July 2015, despite it saying it ships within 5-7 business days.

· · · Apple, Cable

Bought the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable when I was in UK for holiday. It cost £25 (S$53) excluding tax refund. I can’t really remember how much the tax refund was, but it is probably the same price in Singapore after deducting the tax refund.

Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Link Bracelet

Buying The Apple Watch
I was supposed to go to the media launch of the Apple Watch at nubox (Raffles City) if they can reserve a set for me. Because if I went for the event, I would not be able to queue if the queue is short. Unfortunately, they didn’t get back to me till I was in the queue, so I ended up forgoing the media event and joined the queue because it was rather short (I was 36th in line at 8.15am; launch is at 9am). I was intending to buy it online anyway if the queue is long.

The queue was deceiving, it takes about 90 minutes after the official launch timing (9am) to clear 36 people in the queue (I went in about 10.30am). The queue was moving way too slow because they only allowed 2 people into the store at a time (maybe because of Apple’s policy?).

New LEGO Ninjago Products and LEGO Ninjago Airjitzu Flyer (Summer 2015)

· · · Toy

Personally, I am not really familiar with the LEGO Ninjago series, but just to give a brief background, the LEGO Ninjago series was introduced in 2011 around four Ninjas: Kai, Cole, Jay and Zane. They have been trained by their master Sensei Wu to fight forces of evil to protect the land of Ninjago.

This summer, LEGO released 9 new LEGO Ninjago sets and a new LEGO Ninjago product called the LEGO Ninjago Airjitzu Flyer.
