Perfumes from Calvin Klein

Was shopping around in Duty Free in the airport when I came across a selection that is irresistible. CK sells lots of good perfumes, so this multi fragrance travel pack shouts out to the curious me.
The bottles are beautifully crafted too. So I whipped out the camera, add a dash of good lighting and present:

A shot of the 5 bottles, my favorite scent being the CK 1.

This here is my personal favorite.

Over here we have the box itself. Quite well done I might add.

Another shot.

Opening up this box set, one soon realizes that it also makes a great gift.

Well I can’t wait to try them all out. Until next time…


Arrival of my iPad – the new iPad

After my overseas trip, I find my new iPad sitting in my room! Yes cannot imagine my anxiety to get back to SG to Unbox and use it. I still have no idea what is the name of this, iPad 3? The new iPad? Or just iPad?

All I know is this latest iteration of the iPad series is what I have been waiting for. Having gotten the first generation iPad.

I really enjoy this device from Apple tremendously, especially for quick reading, viewing videos and generally it has replaced my laptop. It really is a good brain stimulant if not any other.

With its new Retina display, this third gen iPad is really something. Trust me, you need to go down and view the screen for yourself to be convinced.

Some photos from the unboxing:

My delivery came directly from Shenzhen, China.

A little teasing before pulling the baby out of the carton.

Here you go, it looks exactly like the iPad 2.

Maybe we can call this iteration iPad 2s hur?

Don’t you just love the look of this? 🙂

Plugging into my iTunes.

I have previously backed up the entirety of my first gen iPad, and iTunes did a seamless job of restoring the apps, photos, docs, what-you-have into the new iPad.

In all, after 40 mins, I am up and running with the new iPad.
