In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I travel to Singapore to interview Lester “GaMerZ” Chan. Chan has 23 different plugins in the plugin directory, amassing an incredible total download count of 12,241,325! This accounts for approximately 1.6% of all plugin downloads from the directory.

I joined Tech in Asia as The Tech Guy on 1st September 2014. It has been a busy September for us. There are two developers (Li Soon and I) in Tech in Asia and we have another team in Vietnam that is doing Techlist.
Our priority for September is basically to scale Tech in Asia.
Thanks to SingTel for giving me 2 years free subscription to try out their Fibre Internet so that I can compare it with my existing 300Mbps StarHub MaxInfinity Fibre Internet.
They gave me the 300Mbps Fibre Home Bundle which cost S$59.90. It includes the free Aztech FG7003GRV(AC) – Dual Band Wireless-AC Gigabit VOIP Residential Gateway and Home Digital Line with free unlimited local calls.
Asked my mom to get me the Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from iStudio in Changi Airport because she is travelling to Hong Kong with my dad. The retail price is S$108 but if you get it from the Airport, you don’t have to pay tax for it. So it is cheaper by about 7%, so it cost about S$100.93.
The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is meant for MacBook Pro Retina 13″. As long as your MacBook uses 60W or less, you can use this particular adapter. Case in point, you can use this power adapter with MacBook Air 11″ or MacBook Air 13″.
Before the official launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there are already quite a few cases out there in the market for the phones. I think some manufacturers bet on the leak schematics rather than waiting for Apple’s official schematics.
For iPhone 6 Plus, I found three clear cases in the market from Spigen and one from Tunewear. For Tunewear, there is only the Tunewear eggshell for iPhone 6 Plus (S$32).
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case is retailing for S$68 and my brother ordered it together with the iPhone 6 Plus. But unfortunately, the case got shipped first and we received it yesterday while the iPhone 6 Plus is still stuck in the status, Processing Items.
There are five colors available for Apple iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case: Black, (PRODUCT) Red, Midnight Blue, Olive Brown and Soft Pink.
For SingTel iPhone 6s/6s Plus prices, check out this post, https://lesterchan.net/blog/2015/09/18/singtel-iphone-6s6s-plus-price-plans/.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be launching on Friday, 19th September 2014 at 8am at Marina Bay Sands, Exhibition Hall A, level 1.
During the pre-order of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the Apple Singapore Store at about 3.30pm, I am one of the many users who ran into problems buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because clicking on the Select button as shown in the red box below does nothing. It should redirect you to another page so that you can add that into the cart. But unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.
Thanks to my colleague, Li Soon, who spotted the link and sent it to me. So for the next wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just use the direct links below and click “Add to Cart” button on the right.
What caught my eye was a shop named Anime Trend and they are located on the first floor of the shopping mall. The shop sells lots of figurines related to anime and I spotted them selling the Dragon Ball Z LEGO Compatible Minifigures! Of course they are not the official items since there are no official LEGO Dragon Ball Minifigs.
