First post for 2017

Yikes, it’s already October.
2 more months to end of 2017… ><

My apology to all whom I have owe a post or two and friends who had been checking / reading previously. I have been… swarmed with quite a number of personal stuff.

E.g. work, moving + getting used to the new office and style of working, new house + renovation and having our little clone 😛

*****

Yup, you read that right the first time.
We now have our little clone, our little chubby boy in our new home 😀

Here’s a photo of Baby C:

It has been almost 2 weeks since his arrival and has been a steep learning curve, to learn his habits and little actions… thankfully, we have a capable confinement lady, introduced by Baby’s Whisperer agency, taking care of Baby C and letting us catch up on rest and teaching us the what-to-do and what-not.

Not forgetting my in-laws and parents who have helped with the renovation + clean up + food marketing + many other stuff, to ease our headaches. And friends, whom offered to help out with renovation stuff…

Thank you all… xoxoxo!

Gotta end the post here, need to spend time with my little chubby.
I’ll try to post a little more and share on the pregnancy if possible, within these few months of maternity leave.

Ciaoz~

News: Logitech / UE – #PartyUpwithUE

Ultimate Ears recently released its new app feature, the PartyUp, that allows users to wirelessly connect up to more than 50 Ultimate Ears speakers, bringing any party to a new level of epic!

From your backyard to the beach, Ultimate Ears’ waterproof (IPX7) and durable wireless Bluetooth® speakers have always given you the ability to take the party anywhere. Now, with the addition of PartyUp, you can wirelessly connect a mix of UE BOOM, UE BOOM 2 and UE MEGABOOM speakers together, allowing you to crank up the music in places where no other sound system can go, sharing music and moments in ways that weren’t previously possible.
The app links can be found here – www.ultimateears.com/en-sg/apps.

If you are unsure if it works as it should, a few of us have tried and seen it in action.
And yes, it worked as advertised 🙂
Here are a few photos from last weekend’s Ultimate Ears roadshow at Bugis Junction, where we synced up multiple UE BOOM 2 and UE MEGABOOM at the fountain (thanks Hisham for the music and placing the speakers) and performing with the surround sound from all the paired speakers:

For performance video, it’s on my instagram page – www.instagram.com/xysg/.

News: Expedia – Singapore vacationers are the second biggest international beachgoers

Expedia.com.sg recently released the results of the 2016 Expedia® Flip Flop Report, an annual study of the behavior and preferences among beachgoers around the world and found Singapore vacationers prefer to travel internationally when it comes to getting their dose of the sun, sand and sea.

I’m not into sharing full statistic or detailed write up but here’s an infographic provided by Expedia on their recent findings:

As a frequent traveler, whenever I get a chance to pick a holiday spot, my top choices will always be somewhere with a view or near coast. It’s just something from mundane daily routine and being stuck in a building or room.

My apologies for the lack of posts.
Still in the busy as hell period, which seemingly will get worse soon.

But I’ll add in some events or press release soon, when I find time.
