After getting my bonus, I went ahead and bought the Apple HomePod Mini from Shopee.
Synology started out having its own brand of RAM for as long as I can remember. I covered them back in 2017. After that they went on to have its own brand of M.2 NVMe SSD (SNV3000), SATA SSD (SAT5200), and SATA HDD (HAT5300).
One of the reasons Synology introduces their own lineup of SSD and HDD is for compatibility. The SSD and HDD are optimized for use with their own Synology NAS with customized firmware. Also, when things go wrong, the users don’t need to contact different vendors. They can bring it all back to Synology.
JAAN by Kirk Westaway
Since my brother’s birthday is only four days after mine, we usually celebrate our birthday together. This year, we celebrated our birthday dinner together with our family at JAAN by Kirk Westaway. JAAN by Kirk Westaway is a 1 Michelin Star restaurant since 2016.
JAAN by Kirk Westaway is an internationally celebrated restaurant on the highest floor of the iconic Swissôtel The Stamford in Singapore. Helmed by Executive Chef Kirk Westaway, the establishment is committed to putting a definitive mark on modern British cuisine – promising an elevated reinterpretation of British gastronomy through a modern and innovative culinary lens.
I posted about Synology DDR4 RAM last June, and at that time, there were only five types of Synology DDR4 RAM available, out of which only there is only one ECC SO-DIMM which is the D4ECSO-2666-16G.
With the launch of the Synology 21 series, Synology added two more ECC SO-DIMM to their range of Synology DDR4 RAM. There are the D4ES01-4G and D4ES01-8G.
Once I have the internal hard drives, I can use them with my Vantec NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter to get better transfer speeds.
Back in 2017, DS918+ was the flagship Synology 4-bay NAS and that was replaced with DS920+ in 2020. Also in 2020, the 5-bay DS1520+ got updated.
I was looking for a carrying case for my AirPods Max because the Smart Case that comes with it offers close to no protection on the headphones.
I went with the most ratings and cheapest OEM Apple AirPods Max Case that I can find on Shopee and found this: [SHIWAKI1] Protective Hard Shell EVA Grey Storage Travel Case Bag Cover for AirPods Max.
One might think that based on the model numbers MX4200 and MX5300, the Velop MX4200 might be a more inferior model. But it is actually not true, and in the real world, you might not notice the difference.
My birthday present came early. My brother got me a very generous birthday present, the Apple AirPods Max. It retails for S$849 and is available in five colors, Space Grey, Silver, Green, Blue, and Pink.
My brother got me the Blue flagship color. He ordered on 19th February 2021, and the delivery estimate was 6 to 7 weeks, which makes it around 7th to 13th April 2021. He didn’t expect the shipment to be just one week as I received it on 26th February 2021. Maybe someone canceled their order, and they have stock.
I bought the ORIA Digital Hygrometer Thermometer Display from Lazada when they are having a flash sale.
I got it for S$9.20 with free shipping to Singapore. The usual price is S$11.15.
