I remember being amazed at the comfortable fit and the active noise cancellation when I first laid my hands on the headphones. It got me wondering: how much could Sony…

Review: The Toyota C-HR is a Japanese SUV That’s Built Like a Continental

In the world of automobiles, Toyota is a brand that’s known for reliable engines and gearboxes that hardly ever break down.

Call me old-fashioned, but the quintessential Toyota car is the 1995 Toyota Crown Comfort. Apart from its fame of being the olfactory model for taxis in Singapore from the late 90’s for over 20 years, the Toyota Crown Comfort is a…

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom vs. Megaboom: Does Size Matter?

Ultimate Ears is known for standing alongside the likes of JBL and Bose when it comes to producing good quality portable speakers, and these speakers can often be seen being used by dancers and performers all around Singapore, whether it is for producing good music for dance practice or rehearsals in open spaces. Or, simply used as a subtle way to holler at passersby that dancers are in ‘da house. As a dancer myself, I have known that a significant number of people from my social circle – friends and mentors alike – are advocates of UE speakers, and they…
Vivo V7 Plus (V7+): Another Premium Phone For An Affordable Price

Vivo V7 Plus (V7+): Another Premium Phone For An Affordable Price

At first glance, the Vivo V7 Plus resembles an OPPO. That’s because both Vivo and OPPO are made by the third largest smartphone manufacturer (just behind Apple and Samsung) that you have probably not heard of: BKK Electronics. The Vivo V7 Plus feels exceedingly premium with the matte black aluminium finish and the antenna bands that are both functional and adds to the aesthetics of the phone. The V7 Plus’s minimal front bezel creates an illusion of a larger display despite measuring at a whopping 155.9 x 75.8 x 7.7 mm – next to the iPhone X, the V7 Plus…
