I bought a new gaming console, Sony PS4 Pro God of War / The Last of Us Remastered Bundle during 11/11 Singles Day Sales so that I can play Final Fantasy VII Remake on 3rd March 2020.
Finally, active noise cancellation came to earbuds, and I got the Sony WF-1000XM3.
Upgrade from iPhone XS Max to iPhone 11 Pro Max and bought an Apple AirPods (2019) With Wireless Charging Case. I should have waited for the AirPods Pro.
After four years and nine months, it is time for me to move on. I left my role as Head of Engineering in Tech in Asia in May 2019.
I converted to a full-time employee as a Senior Software Engineer, Full Stack, in November 2019.
I think I travel the most in 2019. Been twice to Japan, twice to Shanghai, three times to Bangkok, the first time to Penang, and the first time to Melbourne.
Looking forward to the successor of the iPhone XS Max since most likely it will have a new design, though not radical.
iPhone 11 Pro Max doesn’t have a new design, but the camera, battery life, and screen make it a good upgrade. Also, there is a new color, Midnight Green.
Apple Homepod will be two years old in 2019. Hopefully, the second generation is around the corner, and it will be available in Singapore.
Still no Apple Homepod in Singapore
In 2019, I am looking forward to the trend of hole-punch screens instead of notch screens.
Somewhat true, I think the same trend will still be in 2020.
I think I am going to have a very busy 2020 since I just changed my job, and the new job requires all of us to ramp up in 2020.
My first trip in 2020 will be to Nagano, Japan, where I will be trying skiing for the first time.
As of now, I don’t have many gadgets that I am trying to buy. I might want to get an Apple HomePod if it is available in Singapore and Apple AirPods Pro if there is a discount on Apple’s Employee Purchase Plan (EPP).
I would like to wish all my readers, visitors, and supporters a Happy New Year 2020!
Looking Back 2019
