It's been a couple of weeks since I started using Samsung's latest flagship foldable phone, now in its fourth iteration, the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The overall experience has been overwhelmingly positive so far. When I first made the decision to purchase the phone with a specific usage in mind, which is a device to... Continue Reading →

Bally Brogann, a highly versatile clutch bag/sling bag
A couple of months ago, as I was walking around Marina Bay Sands doing some window shopping, I came across a rather intriguing clutch bag. This clutch bag is highly versatile, with the ability to convert to a handy sling bag just by adding or removing its signature burgundy red shoulder strap. It's a smallish... Continue Reading →
Bought my second mechanical watch.
Over the last couple of weeks, I spent a lot of time scouring the web learning about the watch that recently caught my attention. At the same time, I tried many times to justify my eventual purchase since I already own a Tissot Visodate automatic. I love that watch. I bought it 6 years ago... Continue Reading →
On the hunt for the next mechanical watch
In 2016, I bought my first ever mechanical watch. The Tissot Visodate for around $800. At that time it was fairly expensive for me, but I still remember the moment I bought it at a Tissot store. I have been working on my first full-time job after graduation for a year now and having received... Continue Reading →

The National Gallery: Last photos taken from my Olympus OMD EM-5 MarkII camera
These sets of photos are long overdue to be showcased here. I almost forgot that in November 2019, I paid a visit to the newly revamped National Gallery and took photos using my trusty Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II camera. Looking back, these are the last photos taken using that camera before switching to Fujifilm... Continue Reading →
Re-evaluating my photography style
The past week I have re-kindled my love for photography a little bit. Ever since I started dusting off my X-Pro 3 from the dry box and giving it a spin to see if it still works, it reminded me of why I like taking photos. It also cemented the fact that my love for... Continue Reading →
Cycling with former colleagues
In my previous blog entry, I mentioned my Fujifilm X-Pro 3 and how I brought it out for a test run after a long hiatus. I was digging through some of my older photos that I took and realised a set of photos that I didn't get to showcase. It was during a cycling outing... Continue Reading →
Taking my X-Pro 3 for a test run after a long hiatus.
One of the most under-utilised devices I have laying around in my room at this moment is the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 camera. I bought the beautiful, titanium encased camera back in 2019 when it was just launched. I was immediately attracted to the design and build quality of the camera that I was willing to...

Let’s talk about Arcane League of Legends
Mind blown. That was my first reaction after binge-watching the entire season 1 of Arcane League of Legends. The last time I had such a feeling was when I was playing Death Stranding and came away incredibly impressed with the game after playing with ZERO expectations and prior knowledge about the content that I was...

Alder Lake Refresh!
For quite a while, I have been having issues with one of my SSDs on my current gaming rig. Sometimes, it will just not be detected by the computer and the entire drive will just disappear.

My second virtual run medal. This is getting addictive.
Recently, I posted about receiving my first virtual run medal from Conqueror challenges. I was impressed with the quality of the medals that I received and soon signed up for more challenges.

My first virtual run medal
So I mentioned several times that I have been taking up running again after a long hiatus. I have been using the treadmill at the gym and I have enjoyed the experience tremendously.
