VisonData Singapore

Hello there everyone. I'm back from my 8 days 7 nights Taiwan trip with my friends and I can't wait to share my travelogue with you guys! But before that, let me share with you guys something else.

If you've followed me on my Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. You would have seen all the pictures I've posted from my Taiwan trip.

We all live in the digital age where we NEED to stay connected everywhere we go. So many thanks to VisonDataSG. They have kindly loan me their pocket wifi to try and review their services.

Diyana from VisonDataSG is super nice! She contacted me regarding the pocket wifi and it was couriered to me 1-2 days before my trip. If you'd like, you can also op to pick up your pocket wifi device from the office itself.

A bit information about VisonDataSG.

VisondataSG (VDS) is a company that provides low cost pocket Wifi rental services that covers more than 70 countries. With the Pocket Wifi, it will be so much easier to google and search for information when you're at overseas.

Each pocket wifi comes with a 

  • Pouch
  • User Manual 
  • Cable
  • Adapter plug
The power bank is available for rental at only $2/Day. Furthermore, it has a capacity of 8400 mAh with two outputs (1.5A/1A) which allows me to charge both the pocket wifi and my phone at the same time

Most of the time I did not use the cable and the adapter plug cause I have my own and I pretty much just bring along the power bank and the pocket wifi everywhere I go.

Each device can support up to 4-6 users. So imagine all of you sharing the costs together, its so much cheaper and cost saving as compared to your data roaming.

My Experience With VisonData Pocket Wifi

Well, this review is solely based on my usage on the pocket wifi itself. Its pretty easy to use, all you have to do is just connect it manually.

Step 1: Turn on your phone's wifi (let it search for the SSID which is shown at the back of the pocket wifi)
Step 2: Key in the password which is also shown just right below the SSID

AND VOILA! You're connected. A good tip for you guys would be to connect the device beforehand so that when you reach your travel destination all you have to do is just turn on the pocket wifi and you're already connected to the internet.

Overall, I didn't have trouble staying connected only when I was on my way from 九份 to 十分 in the tunnel. But not to worry, cause the rest of my friends also had no service at that point of time. Other than that, the pocket wifi works pretty well even when i'm on the MTR underground and also up on 清境 mountain.

BuildSG2065

We all know that our sunny island Singapore have been through tremendous transformations. 50 years ago, to be exact. 9th August 1965 is the day where Singapore becomes independent after separating from Malaysia.

50 years later. 2015. The greenery, the clean river that we see now. The non air conditioned buses to air conditioned. The shop houses to all the tall HDB flats you see today.  Singapore has been through a lot changes for the past 50 years. BUT! Can you imagine what Singapore would be in another 50 years of time? What do you think our tiny little red dot would turn into in the year 2065?

Now let me share with you my ideas of how I think Singapore should/would be in 2065.

GO GREEN - Imagine in the year 2065, our energy would be generated via the nature of the wind. This, we won't have to worry about bursting our electricity bills.

SMART SPACES - We all wished there were more spaces in Singapore right? So in 2065, I hope that everywhere in Singapore will be connected via slides and we can just take the slide down to our destinations. Imagine living in Jurong and having to book in to Pulau Tekong. All we (boys) have to do is just take a slide and VOILA! We've reached our destinations. Say no more to long waiting public transport!!! ♥

For more information you can take a look at this video to get some inspirations.

Dolce Tokyo

I'm a crazy fan of poached eggs/eggs benedict. So a few weeks ago, I wanted to go Symmetry Cafe to try put their poached eggs. But sadly, their brunch hour was over. So.... To seek for next best alternative, my friends and headed over to Dolce Tokyo located at level 3 of Bugis Junction.

Group Therapy Coffee

Hello there everyone. I'm finally back here to this space writing. Hahah! I've been busy with work recently, and that explains the lack of updates at my blog. If you'd like, you can follow me on my twitter and/or instagram @donxkoh for more updates about my life? Hahaha

So anyways. Last week was my off day, so I went for some cafe hopping. Had brunch date at Group Therapy because my friend recommended that cafe as I was told that their portion serving was huge. :D

We were lucky enough that when we reached the place there's seats available for us. I think prolly because its a weekend, that explains why the place is filled with people. Furthermore, I feel that the cafe is relatively small. :/

A P4030758_副本

I ordered their BLT Croissant Plate and request to change to scrambled eggs instead of their usual sunnyside up.

P/S: I forgot what my friend ordered already. LOL!

As for drinks, I ordered their Mint Mocha and my friend ordered the Matcha Latte. The cafe is located on the 2nd level of a shop house. Nearest MRT station is at Outram Park or Tanjong Pagar. Both are walkable distance.

Overall, the serving was huge, but it isn't that fantastic. The scrambled egg was pretty dry, and their bacon was quite hard to be honest. But if you're not very particular and anal about how your food tastes, you can give this cafe a visit. :)
