Apple Watch Series 3 (42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case With Space Black Milanese Loop) is approaching its end of life soon as it passes the four-year mark. I expected Apple to discontinue the Apple Watch Series 3 this year (2021), but it lives to die another year.
If you are on the non-cellular Apple Watch Series 3, you will run into problems upgrading WatchOS because there is only 4GB of storage. Luckily, I am on cellular, and it comes with 8GB of storage, so I do not have this problem.

This is the second Ugreen 100W charger after the
Ugreen 4-Port PD 100W Charger.
It retails for
S$71.99 on Lazada and Shopee. But you probably can get it cheaper during Lazada’s monthly double-digit sale day. Ugreen 4-Port 100W Wall Charger – Box Front

Ugreen Magnetic Wireless Charger is Ugreen’s take on creating a MagSafe compatible wireless charger.
They are selling it for
S$33.59 on Lazada or Shopee, and of course, it will be cheaper during Lazada’s monthly double-digit sale day. In comparison, Apple’s MagSafe charger retails for S$58, making it almost twice as expensive. Ugreen Magnetic Wireless Charger – Box Front

Snactiv on Kickstarter in April 2020. It was successfully funded in the same month where it raised a total of US$41,700 from 911 backers.
My pledge level was the Super Early Bird. So I paid US$18 (S$25), and shipping to Singapore is an additional US$5 (S$7).

Akko Cherry Profile Carbon Retro Keycap Set from Shopee for S$58. It is probably the cheapest Akko Keycap set I could find.
These are double-shot PBT cherry profile keycaps. On the other hand, the Keychron Q1 comes with double-shot ABS OEM profile keycaps.

After getting my
Keychron K7, it got me interested in the world of Keyboard modding. So happen that my brother also got interested and he bought for himself and me the Keychron Q1 (USD$169 / S$229) together with the Keychron Keyboard Wooden Palm Rest (USD$25 / S$34).
I chose the Fully Assembled Carbon Black Base with Gateron Phantom Blue switches. Fully assembled because it is just US$20 difference, and I don’t have any existing switches that I can use.

Keychron K7‘s battery life is bad. Using it for about 8 hours a day, it could not even last through a 5-day work week on a single charge.
I disabled the auto-sleep mode because, for some reason, when the keyboard wakes up from sleep, it refuses to connect back to my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth.
