    I got myself a iPad Pro 11inch in 64GB yesterday. Well, I needed to recontract my phone plan at Singtel and I want to downgrade it. I can either go for a SIM-only plan or one of their new data intensive plans – XO series. I went for XO48 plan in the end and paid S$632 (including discounts) for the iPad Pro. I wanted to get the 256GB version in Space Grey but the last unit is reserved so I can’t get it. I have to go other stores in order to try to get it. I went to the third store (Singtel Bugis Junction) and the sales guy is much better than the first sales guy (at Singtel Comcentre). He actually helped me check if there are stocks for 256GB version in Singapore and apparently there aren’t any stocks for 256GB and 512GB in the whole of Singapore. Luckily there are still 64GB version at the store so I got that instead. The first guy lied to me and said it is no stocks even for 64GB for the entire Singapore. :glare: What a liar. He just want to do quick business and wants me to get something else instead. Boooo.

    I’m happy that I managed to get it in the end even though it is not the preferred storage option or the colour that I wanted (I got it in Silver).

    I’m even happier that my iPhone 8 Plus lasted for close to 2 years now and I don’t have to get another phone when I recontract.

    Also, cheaper mobile plans for the win!

    I’m thankful and lucky to have Chin Hau as my boyfriend. :happy: He encouraged me to go Bugis outlet to ask. We basically go from Singtel Comcentre at Somerset MRT to ION Orchard at Orchard MRT then to Bugis Junction at Bugis MRT. All for that iPad Pro. :oops:

    Our original plan of studying got foiled because of iPad Pro shopping. I didn’t expect Comcentre not to have any stocks and being so unhelpful.

    He is so patient with me and didn’t complained about not able to study. Lots of other things happened on the same day too – like not getting cash when I withdraw cash from ATM machine.

    I’m having a chill Saturday today after going for a couple of appointments that I planned for in the morning. I even get to practise my violin before my dinner which is a really rare opportunity for a busy bee like me.

    Unfortunately, my Sunday is not going to be so chill. Somehow I got both badminton and violin class on the same day. I don’t have a car so I will be carrying both violin and racket, along with my change of clothes as well. A bit sad but oh well.

    I’m getting close to weekly badminton sessions since my boyfriend loves badminton and we both got new badminton rackets. Hehe, hopefully my skills will slowly improve under my boyfriend’s guidance (actually not much guidance…)

    The haze season is back in Singapore – thanks to Indonesia burning their trees to clear land, again. I bought the Sharp air purifier back in 2015 and the filter don’t really last for very long before producing the dusty smell. But after switching it on for a while, the dusty smell will go away. But still, not very good. In addition, the coverage area for the air purifier is insufficient to cover my living room so I decided to get another air purifier.

    I was thinking of getting Philips AC2882 but it went out of stock while I was still thinking if I want to get the model.

    Then I switched to Philips AC2887 but it went out of stock after I ordered. There were still 8 pieces left when I ordered and I got a shipping number when the seller shipped the product after 2 working days. I even confirmed with the seller. However, I still didn’t receive it by the 4th or 5th working day so I decided to contact the seller again. Then the seller said that they got 1 staff trying to contact me as the air purifier that I ordered was out of stock. :glare: They wanted to switch my order to another “high end air purifier and dehumdifier” as a replacement which I declined. So I opt for refund and now Shopee (the platform which I ordered it from) is processing the refund.

    I went shopping yesterday and tried Dyson air purifiers. I was thinking of getting Dyson Pure Cool Me which is around the same price as Philips AC2887 on discount (S$499) at Shopee. I can’t find any discount on the same Philips model and it was out of stock almost everywhere. So I was thinking of getting Dyson Pure Cool Me instead.

    Turns out that there was some discount at Harvey Norman for Dyson air purifiers so I was thinking of getting Dyson Pure Cool DP04 (the one for table tops). I love the strong airflow and it was not as expensive as its tower standing peer (Dyson Pure Cool TP04).

    Luckily for me, there were discount for Dyson Pure Cool TP04 when I went to Harvey Norman store at Millenia Walk. I got it at S$674 and I haven’t decide if I want to top up S$142 to get 3 additional years of warranty coverage.

    Dyson TP04 works well for me so far. It definitely works well in my bedroom and not too bad in the living room so far.

    So yeah, I got myself another Dyson product. My first product is the legendary hair dryer which I forgot when I got it. But I don’t use it everyday even though I should be doing that.

    Kudos to my boyfriend, Chin Hau, who helped me carry it back to my home. :love: And fortunately that our grab car is big enough to squeeze it in. :happy:

    Chin Hau bought me to Dancing Crab on our 4th monthsary yesterday. Actually he wanted to go there earlier but we didn’t have the time to go. So we went on our 4th monthsary.

    Wow I naively thought it only cost S$9.80 for the lobster they labelled it as S$9.80/100g. The lobster weight 850g so it basically costs S$83.30. :shocked: We ordered 1 steamed and 1 grilled corn along with spicy fries.

    We ordered 1 crab and 1 lobster originally which is too much. Luckily we managed to cancel the order for the crab and just have the lobster. Chin Hau treated me which makes me feel blessed. Hehe, he don’t treat me all the time so I feel blessed when he treated me and it was such an expensive meal. :smile:

    I went to the Changi Wizarding World at Changi Airport with Chin Hau yesterday. Basically it is a set of Harry Potter theme exhibits which look quite disappointing. In order to promote their event, they want to see at least 3 posts for 3 different exhibits before you can play the games. Some of the exhibits are quite disappointing. Anyway, I will leave you with the photos for you to judge. Nothing interesting, to be honest.

    Nevertheless, it was quite a fun date activity and I love to continue to disturb Chin Hau sometimes. :lovestruck: We had dinner at Paradise Dynasty which is kind of expensive and we were so full. Okay, I was very full while it was just ok for Chin Hau. He got a big appetite after all… :smile:
