Skullcandy PLYR 2 Review

Some of us might wonder as to why Apple bought Beats Audio, and I think the answer is quite simple, as with their other products – wireless audio. That thought of mine didn’t come to me until I bought the Skullcandy PLYR 2 off (with free shipping to Singapore!) when my old SteelSeries 5H V2 broke, and I was surfing around for a wireless headset with good audio quality, and has an audio jack for connecting to my existing Sound Blaster X-Fi.

MiPow 5200M Power Cube Review

MiPow Power Cube 5200M

UPDATE 24th June 2014: Yet another power bank fails and vents.

UPDATE 30th April 2014: A photo of the said product can be seen on DK’s blog post about it. and it seems that there might be a stricter control on importing batteries in the future, given the recent spate of battery explosions, due to the proliferation of power banks.

UPDATE 29th April 2014:  Valore is issuing a recall of two models of their own power banks, as seen in today’s Straits Times’ “Home” section.

One thing that bothers me recently is the mass proliferation of Valore stores in shopping malls here (most likely with the financial and logistical clout of Challenger), and I’m amazed at what people accept as “good” in their books with regard to design and use of a power bank (I’m not even sure where this term comes from, when I vaguely remember it was called a portable battery in the distant past). So in order to put a dent in everyone’s (and especially Valore’s) universe, here’s my review of my MiPow 5200 Power Cube.

Kyoukai no Kanata Review


After a very long hiatus from watching anime, I finally decided to pick out something off YouTube while randomly browsing J-Pop/anime/VOCALOID songs. This got me hooked, and as a result I watched the entire series.

As expected, Kyoukai no Kanata is a series with good quality animation and storyline. What I didn’t know was that it was animated by Kyoto Animation, which I was (and still am) a sucker for – Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid and The Melachony of Suzumiya Haruhi are some of my favourite anime to date.
