The much anticipated OnePlus 2 which was announced last Tuesday, 28th July 2015, will be coming to Singapore in Q4 2015 and the local retail price is S$538 for the 64GB variant.
I played with the OnePlus 2 last Friday, 31st July 2015, at the OnePlus 2 media event in Singapore. I love the build of the OnePlus 2, it feels solid and have a premium touch to it. The phone comes with the Sandstone Black back cover which I totally love. If you don’t like it, you can swap it with four other back covers: Bamboo, Rosewood, Black Apricot, Kevlar, which are sold separately.
Accompanying the #LEGORebuildSG campaign is the launch of 4 LEGO SG50 Limited Edition Singapore Icons Mini Builds. The 4 Mini Builds include quintessential Singaporean icons of the past such as The Cable Car, Ice Cream Bike, HDB Flats and the Dragon Playground. The Mini Builds are redeemable at selected stores with a minimum purchase of S$50 of LEGO products in a single receipt. Note that the Mini Builds have already been fully redeemed.
The easiest Mini Build to build is the Cable Car which only has 1 page of instructions, requiring 56 pieces of LEGO bricks to build. Next is the Ice Cream Bike with 2 pages of instructions, requiring 35 pieces of LEGO bricks to build.
Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of its tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.
Amazon was having a 30% discount on the Nexus Player two weeks ago. I contemplated for a few days because I am not sure if I need it but in the end I still decided to get it because I am a sucker for new gadgets.
I got it on Amazon for US$67.68 (S$93) back on 29th June 2015. Since it does not ship to Singapore directly, I shipped it to my favourite freight forwarder, HopShopGo, and got them to ship to me once they received the parcel. I paid US$19.64 (S$27) for the shipping from HopSHopGo to Singapore via DHL Express.
Previously, I was using StrongVPN on their StrongVPN Special PPTP which I paid US$55/year (S$75/year).
After my one year contract with them ended, I didn’t renew it because I felt that their server switch quota is kinda limiting though I have never hit the limit before. Server switch basically allows you to switch to different VPN servers.
