Bose MIE2i Mobile Headset from Apple’s West 14th Street Store in Manhattan for US$116.96 and after 8.875% tax, it comes out to US$127.34 (S$161.50). The usual price is US$129.95 but Bose in USA is giving a 10% discount during the holiday period. With the 10% discount, it is about S$37 cheaper when you compared it to the official retail price of S$199 in Singapore.
I am pretty impressed with the Bose MIE2i, it sounded better than
Klipsch Image S4i II with regards to clarity and bass and from a non-audiophile point of view, the sound quality is on-par with the Klipsch Image X10. Bose MIE2i – Box Front

I bought the
Victorinox Swiss Army Slim 2.0 USB Flash Drive (32GB) when I visited the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets because I got nothing else to buy from there because I am not that into branded stuff.
It costs US$19.99 and after a 8.25% tax, it cost
US$22 (S$28) which is pretty cheap, considering Amazon is selling for US$38.99. Victorinox Swiss Army Flash Drive – Packaging Front

Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown) from the Apple’s Fifth Avenue store because I have to get something from that iconic flagship store! It is just slightly cheaper than Singapore if you pay by cash. Over there, it is retailing for US$39 + US$3.46 (NYC 8.875% tax) = US$42.46 (S$54), whereas in Singapore it is retailing for S$58.
I got the brown to match my

In Singapore, the Fitbit Aria is retailing for S$169 on

Looking Back 2012, I wanted to travel to several countries which I sort of did!
For my 2013 resolution/wish, I want to travel more. Maybe to Australia, Japan, Korea, London or even New York if possible.
