Beat the IT Show 2015 Queue with UnexpecTech Deals by Singtel

IT Show in Singapore is one of the most crowded event one gets to experience. With that much crowd and squeezing, we often miss the best deals at the show; it is simply mission impossible to check out all the booths and compare prices. This year, Singtel is giving you the chance to enjoy the same (and maybe even better) deals in the most unexpected way. They have wittily named it UnexpecTech Deals.

Take advantage of Singtel’s best tech show deals way before the deals are out on the local forums or Bootstrike for IT Fairs in Singapore, and beat the crowd at the upcoming IT Show 2015.

DBS one.tap – New way to shop

Sooo the Tap and Win by DBS was a prelude to what they are offering and just what I am looking for! Think credit card in your mobile phone! No more bulky wallet! If it was introduced some 10 years ago, I would have gone clubbing with just a phone, no need for $3 baggage lockers. *coughs*

This DBS TVC should be familiar to you all of you by now. I’m guessing one of the Future of Banking they are referring to is One.Tap.

DBS one.tap is empowered by Near Field Communications (NFC) technology which transmits data between a mobile device and a reader. According to DBS website, we can now tap and pay for purchases at retail outlets and for taxi fares with our mobile phone, at over 30,000 merchant acceptance points in Singapore. Some of these popular merchants include, Watsons, PastaMania, Shaw Theatres, G2000, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Comfort & CityCab and more.

Here’s the video on one.tap.

Looks like DBS is getting all pumped up for a whole new banking experience! As a customer for more than 2 decades, I’m excited to enjoy all these cool new experiences and features by DBS.

This post is sponsored by DBS, but all thoughts and comments are of my own. And I joke not for being a loyal customer of DBS.

“I want a GTI!”

Who doesn’t? If money can drop from the sky I’ll buy the new Polo GTI and will never have to change the bus to the train then to the bus again just to get to office.

Heard the shoutout over 987fm the other night and the sound of the new Polo GTI kinda puzzled me. How can an engine sound so funky? Or you mean speed’s got a new beat? Then I realised its actually beat-boxer Dharni behind it. Impressive beat-boxing can? He’s also the beats behind the game at http://PoloGTI.sg. I tried it and boy its impossible to score in the game! My fingers were all entangled by end of my first try.

Video above was captured while playing my 13th game and still I suck at it! But it was quite a challenge. Kris and Derek were caught trying it out too when I told them about it at the office.

Would love to give the new Polo GTI a try at Volkswagen Centre Singapore! You can book a test drive too through http://PoloGTI.sg. If you think the short drive isn’t going to satisfy you, then go try beat the high score at the game and you’ll get to zoom in the new Polo GTI over a weekend! How cool!

Now, I’m going back to trying out the game… my current score at highest is 70,000 beats, got to beat the 500k++ beats wor! Got till 8 May to do it! Wish me luck!

“P…O… L… O… G… T… I…” :P
