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.

NudeAudio Move M

My good friend, Benjamin Eng, backed the NudeAudio Super M on Kickstarter. As part of NudeAudio’s way to thank the backers, they offered the backers a free NudeAudio Move S when you purchased the NudeAudio Move M from their website.

Benjamin pinged me about the offer last October and I thought it was a pretty good deal. So I ended by asking him to get it for me. I bought the NudeAudio Move M for US$69.99 (S$94) and I got the NudeAudio Move S worth US$49.99 (S$67) for free.
