The Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag is available in 2 sizes, the medium and the large. For the medium, there are 5 designs and for the large, there are 3 designs.
The build of this case is solid because the backplate is made up of aluminium and the case itself is made up of polycarbonate.
Bought the Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack together with the Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag from Timbuk2 Singapore Store because I have a one-time media discount of 30%. The Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack is retailing for S$169 and after the 30% discount, I paid S$118.30.
The Phoenix Cycling Backpack is just available in 1 size which is medium and there are 3 designs you can choose from, nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon, nylon gunmetal / revlon red / revlon red or nylon black.
The Canon PowerShot N was launched earlier this year (April 2013) for S$399 and is available only in one color, white.

The Moshi Cardette 3 is in its third generation and hence the number 3. It also coincides with USB 3.0, I wonder did they refresh the product each time there is a major release to the USB specifications?
For the unaware, the Moshi Cardette 3 is a USB 3.0 Card Reader that has a built-in 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub. It is lightweight (weighing at 88g) which makes it suitable for carrying around together with your laptop (which is what I am doing). It is retailing for S$69.90.
Since I already have a Custom Laptop Messenger Bag (Small) and I am not a fan of big bags, I chose the Custom Classic Messenger Bag (Extra Small) which fits an iPad.
Ozaki O!coat 0.3+Pocket is an extremely thin (0.3mm) and lightweight (9g) case that is made using polypropylene.
The back of the case is leather textured and it has a card holder slot that holds one credit card (at most two). If you don’t like putting your credit card there, you can use it to hold reminders written on small pieces of paper (which is what my mom is doing) and I find that is a great idea! If not you can use it to hold up name cards or your EZ-Link/Octopus/Oyster card.
The Anker Astro E4 is my third Anker Product and I must say, I am really love this up and coming brand. It seems very popular in the US. The Anker Astro E4 tops the Gizmodo’s Five Best External Battery Packs.
Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter is retailing for S$20.90 and has a feature that most audio splitter doesn’t have (even the overpriced Belkin Audio Splitter), which is the ability for one of the two connected earphones to support microphone.
An audio jack splitter allows two person to share music from just one device each using their own earphones. Moshi did a very good implementation by allowing one of the earphones to be the master (the one with the microphone icon) and hence the ability to use the microphone (if your earphones comes with it) to answer any incoming voice/Skype calls. Of course, if the other party’s earphones are still plugged in, he or she will be able to listen to your conversation.
Bought the McKAL Airplane Audio Adapter from the newly opened Challenger at Bugis Junction for S$6.90 (Member’s Price: S$5.90). Now I can finally use my own earphones/headphones for the airplane’s in-flight entertainment!
I can also watch my movies for about 10-15 minutes longer while the air stewardess goes around collecting the loaned headphones from the passengers!
