    I realised that I didn’t blog about my new Beoplay H3 ANC. Well, I got it from TANGS and got 6% cash rebate and S$25 gift card since I used my StanChart credit card to pay for it. It costs S$339 after discount but after all the rebates and gift card that I got, it became less than S$300. Well, that means I am less guilty of my purchase? Hahaha.

    Anyway, it is an awesome looking earphones with a balanced sound. ANC sucks though but I’m not going to complain much with its superb sound quality. Okay, fine. Actually I am a bit regretting because of the poor ANC. But the next option is Bose QC20 and I am not really keen to get that because I already owned a QC25. Oh well… I am using it as frequently as I can now to make full use of my expensive purchase. Hopefully this is going to be the last expensive purchase that I am going to make in the next few months. I seriously need to save money… Bleh…

    So now I am a proud owner of both Beoplay A2 and H3 ANC. I really love the sound quality of my Beoplay A2. It makes me want to stay in my bedroom all day long because of its hifi-like sound quality!

    I am tempted to get a new earphones since I lost my old Audio Technica earphones… I went to Stereo shop to try Audio Technica ATH-ANC33i, ATH-ANC40BT, Beoplay H5 and H3 ANC. Audio Technica ATH-ANC40BT is good for its ANC abilities. I was impressed by its ANC quality. However, the sound quality seems a bit lacking. I prefer a natural treble sounding earpiece… Then the salesperson recommended me Beoplay H3 ANC and whoa! It is good! ANC is so-so. I find my Bose QC25 have better ANC abilities though. But Beoplay H3 ANC has a more balanced sound. I would prefer my Bose QC25 though but it is too bulky for me to bring around…

    So now I am more inclined towards Beoplay H3 ANC. The only thing that is stopping me is the price tag. :sad: It costs S$379 which is quite expensive for someone who don’t really wear earphones…

    Yay! I got my MacBook Pro! After such a long wait and dilemma, I finally decided to get the 15″ model. :smile: Whee! Now I am a proud owner of MacBook Pro.

    Unfortunately, I am pretty poor after the purchase. Oh well. I tried my best to keep the cost within budget and get the best MacBook Pro version. I even signed up for a credit card with the most cash back for online purchases and use it to get the MacBook Pro. Haha, that’s how far I would try to save. Haha.

    Anyway, signing off now to continue to play with my MacBook Pro. :grin:

    I am thinking of getting MacBook Pro during the PC Show. But next week is Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference and they might announced a new MacBook Pro. Then again there are some rumours saying that it will only be released in late 2016 and I want to get it before school starts.

    Actually I wanted a MacBook pro for music production and I can use it for school work sometimes. My main school laptop will probably be my ASUS laptop but it doesn’t hurt to have another one which I can bring to school easily?

    Unfortunately, it is going to be close to S$3000 after getting the laptop, AppleCare and the software for music production. Sigh. It is so expensive… :sad:

    Somehow this weekend passes by pretty fast. I didn’t study for my Grade 8 Music Theory exam though. It’s just 2 weeks till my exam and I am getting worried.

    My knee is hurting again. :sad: I wanted to go back to my violin lessons and my wrist injury is back again. Gah. Why am I so injury-prone? Sigh, so now I don’t dare to go back to violin lessons until my wrist is completely recovered. Bleh. I forgot to tell my hand specialist when I went back for my appointment. Oh well… Now I am thinking if I should go to GP instead. I already went to TCM for my wrist injury but… Bleh. Dilemma oh dilemma…

    Anyway, I should be going home early from now onwards to study for my music theory exam. Bleh, I also want to shop for a camera bag.
