Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro Review

Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro

Xiaomi never ceases to impress me with their really good, value for money, products. It started with their Android smartphones. Then came battery power banks, fitness trackers, and other gadgetries. Today, I’m writing about their Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro, which comes across highly recommended by many others. It costs only S$27.99, so it couldn’t hurt to try. Getting hold of…

Dinosaur Museum

For $6.90, you get a food item and a fresh brewed coffee of the day. This year, Starbucks has rolled out some updates to their breakfast menu. Some…

OP/TECH Utility Strap Strap

Along with the OP/TECH Wrist Strap which I recently reviewed, I also have the OP/TECH Utility Strap – Sling. This strap, or sling, whichever you prefer to call it, is quite versatile in how you can use it. My intent was to use this strap-sling slung across my shoulder, just as how OP/TECH had depicted, with camera hanging on one side.

HillV2 One Year Later


HillV2, the suburban shopping mall at HillView, opened its doors in September of 2014. It was much welcomed by residents around the area, evidenced by the crowds in the evenings and weekends. They even had to organise free valet services to resolve issues with limited parking. It seems business should be good here. How are things one year later? It seems some…
