Syncros HP Micro Pump Review

Background Back in the days when I was cycling regularly, I was always trying to reduce items and go light every time I go for a ride. One of the items was a bicycle hand pump. I feel that it should be small and light enough so that it can fit into my cycling jersey's back pockets, and my tool storage bottle, if I am bringing only one water bottle along.  One day I was walking around bicycle shops and found the Syncros HP Micro Pump. It was by far the smallest I have found. I decided to do some research online before buying it to see if there are any smaller pumps out there. I wasn't able to find others at that point in time and as such, I went back to the shop and purchase the pump. The Stuff The Syncros HP Micro Pump can only be used for Presta valves. It measures 13.3cm in length. It has a level to lock and unlock the valve when attaching it. Here are some of the pictures that I've taken to show how the pump looks like: The Syncros HP Micro Pump The pump fully extended w

Adidas Packable Backpack Review

Background Back in September and October 2019, I was looking for a packable backpack that I can use as a daily backpack during my travels. I looked online and found the Adidas packable backpack. I love the black and simple look of it and decided to purchase it at ASOS. The Stuff The Adidas Packable Backpack came in a very simple packaging - just the packable backpack in its packed form itself.

Background Back in 2014, I saw an interesting tool called the Wallet Ninja online. It is a card-size multi-tool that has many functions.

Background I bought the Mi 10 Pro Global edition phone in Mid May 2020. When it arrived, the contents of the phone came with a casing. I tried the casing onto the phone but I feel that it needed a bit more protection, as I tend to be clumsy and my phone tends to get knocked or dropped. As such, I went online to search for one and decided to get the Spigen Rugged Armor case from Qoo10. I had use Spigen's rugged case before, on my OnePlus 3 and Huawei P10 Plus. It is the same design hence I have faith in this case :) The Stuff The Spigen Rugged Armor Case came just 2 days after I ordered, as there is a Spigen official store from Qoo10 in Singapore. The standard rugged armor case comes in black and the Spigen Singapore website describes the following features: Signature carbon fiber look w

As usual, I did my search online and it led me to one design which I eventually bought a couple of them from Aliexpress.
