Xiaomi’s Mi Pad Available In Singapore Tomorrow

· · · Tablet

Xiaomi’s Mi Pad will be available in Singapore tomorrow, 10th February 2015 at 12pm for S$299. This time round, Xiaomi did not state the quantity of Mi Pad available so I am guessing they are not expecting the demand to be high.

Only the 16GB white will be available whereas in China, you will get a choice of 16GB or 64GB with six colors: white, red, black, blue, green and yellow.

Herschel Supply Settlement Backpack (Navy/Mandarin)

I always wanted to get a Herschel Supply‘s backpack but just lack the impulse to do so because I already have lots of bags.

The impulse came when I was shopping around Orchard Road with my secondary school friend who is back in Singapore for a week.

I saw the Herschel Supply Settlement Backpack (Navy/Mandarin) being sold at Bratpack in Bugis Junction last year but I can’t seem to find it anymore at all the shops selling Herschel Supply’s bags in Orchard.

So when I came back home and did more Googling, I realised that the bag was released in Q4 2013.

The bag is also available on Amazon for US$54.99 (S$74) and shipping is an additional US$20.97 (S$28). This brings the total price to US$75.96 (S$102). In Singapore, the price of Herschel Supply’s bag is pretty much controlled, so for the Herschel Supply Settlement Backpack in other colors, the recommended retail price (RRP) is S$109.

With even more Googling, I found the bag being sold at Flight001 Asia online store for S$109. I recognised the brand Flight001, because I remember seeing the store at Mandarin Gallery in Singapore.

Because it is S$109, I hesitated a little and when I visited the page again a few hours later (past midnight), I saw the price dropped to S$54.50. I then realised that they are having a flash sale on 25th January 2015. It also so happen that only that particular bag is discounted for the flash sale for that day.

It was like I am fated to buy the bag because the timing is so coincidence and of course I bought it immediately. Delivery (Ta-Q-Bin) is free because my purchase is above S$40. Bought it on a Sunday, 25th January 2015 and it was delivered it me on Tuesday, 27th January 2015.

There is also an inverse color of my bag called the Herschel Supply Heritage Backpack (Carrot/Navy/Khaki Rubber) which is also retailing for S$109. I saw it being sold at Bratpack in Cineleisure.

Features

  • Fully lined with our signature coated cotton-poly fabric
  • 15″ laptop sleeve pocket

  • 8pt plastic zippers
  • Single front pocket with key clip
  • Internal media pocket
  • Dimensions (H x W x D): 47 x 30.5 x 14.6 (cm)

By now you all should know that my favourite colors are orange and blue!

GoPro 3-Way

· · · Camera

The GoPro 3-Way is retailing for S$100 in Singapore.

Similar to the GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) and GoPro The Handler (Floating Hand Grip), I got the GoPro 3-Way from Amazon for US$69.99 (S$94). For the GoPro 3-Way, it is only slightly cheaper which is about S$5 but it still qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver free shipping.

The GoPro 3-Way is my favourite mount for the GoPro because it can be used in three main ways (camera grip, extension arm or tripod). It’s removable mini tripod is cleverly hidden at the handle of the GoPro 3-Way. The handle can be detached from the arm and used as a camera grip. The folding arm makes it easy to capture selfies without the mount appearing in the shot.

It measures 7.5″ (19cm) and when it is fully extended, it is 20″ (50.8cm). It is waterproof and hence it can be used in and out of the water.

I know it is pretty expensive for a tripod, but I think it is well worth the money.

GoPro The Handler (Floating Hand Grip)

· · · Camera

The GoPro The Handler (Floating Hand Grip) is retailing for S$50 in Singapore.

Similar to the GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp), I got the GoPro The Handler (Floating Hand Grip) from Amazon for US$25.49 (S$34) instead because it is about S$15 cheaper and it also qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver free shipping.

The content packaging comes with The Handler (Floating Hand Grip), Thumb Screw, Wrist Strap and The Tool (Thumb Screw Wrench + Bottle Opener). Interestedly, The Tool itself is retailing for S$11 in Singapore.

GoPro The Handler is a floating hand grip that keeps your GoPro afloat so you can shoot in and around the water. It can float your GoPro camera plus an LCD Touch BacPac or Battery BacPac. It is waterproof up to 33″ (10m) which makes it perfect for surfing, kayaking, wakeboarding and other water sports.

GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp)

· · · Camera

The GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) is retailing for S$75 in Singapore and it contains both the Jaws: Flex Clamp and Adjustable Neck (Gooseneck). The Adjustable Neck (Gooseneck) alone is retailing for S$35 in Singapore.

I got the GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) from Amazon for US$39.99 (S$54) instead because it is about S$20 cheaper and it qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver free shipping.

The GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) allows you to clamp your GoPro to objects ranging in size from 0.25″ to 2″ (0.6cm to 5cm) in diameter. The GoPro can also be attached directly to the clamp for low-profile mounting.

The included adjustable neck also known as the Gooseneck allows you to adjust to a variety of shooting angles as well.
