Samsung Series 5 55″ SUHD Smart LED TV (UA55JS7200)

Bought the Samsung Series 5 55″ SUHD Smart LED TV (UA55JS7200) from Best Denki at VivoCity on 20th February 2016. Best Denki is having their Fortune Sale for Chinese New Year. This television is for my new house that will be ready in end April 2016.

When the television was launched in April 2015, the price was S$3,699 but now it dropped to S$2,949. For the fortune sale, there is a 8% discount (capped at S$200) and hence the final price of the television is S$2,749. It comes with a free Samsung 320W 2.1 Ch Soundbar (J551) worth S$549 and I paid extra S$50 for the wall mount.

FiftyThree Pencil Stylus

· · · Gadget

Li Xiang has been drawing a lot on the free FiftyThree’s Paper iOS app lately. That is because she is designing for our new house which is going to start renovation after Lunar New Year (8th February 2016).

I knew about the FiftyThree Pencil when it was launched back in November 2013. I figured that Pencil should work very well with Paper, much better than a normal stylus.
