The Tech Show Season is coming really soon and many Tech Geeks [like us] are pretty excited to check out the latest tech deals in town and pounce on the many bargains that are available.
However, with a multitude of people flooding the annual IT Show [as always], it can be very difficult to get to the deal that we want and it can be especially frustrating if time is a constraint.
However, Singtel has hidden ALL [yes every one of them] of their deals [from extra mobile data to great discounts on phones] in one place [the web browser] and you could access them only if you are quick and smart enough to search for some clues!
Well, we happened to find one clue that was left by Singtel and we found out that Singtel has put clues all over the place to help people search for the deals.
Apart from the Tech Show Deals by Singtel, there are also opportunities available to win some great prizes. However, be quick and snap them up because some of the really cool ones are for a limited-time only!
Yesterday, we were at The Walking Dead Zombie Pop Up Cafe that was specially constructed for the Race The DeadRunning Event, Singapore’s first ever 5K Zombie Run, at Sentosa Siloso Beach and it was quite an intriguing experience.
If you’re wondering what’s on the menu, here it is! All the food and beverage items were specially prepared by the awesome crew from Kerbside Gourmet.
Of all the items that we have tried on the menu, we like Victim 13 Cupcake the best and apart from food, blood beverage was also served to over 5,000 survivors of the Race The Dead event.
Runners had a taste of what it felt like to be inside The Walking Dead, the hit-TV show that kicked off the zombie fever around the world.
Participants also flocked to take photos with zombies from The Walking Dead Zombie Pop Up Café, and capped off an exhausting day with an exclusive outdoor screening of the latest episodes from The Walking Dead Season 4, organised by SingTel mio TV and FOX Movies Premium.
As of the time of posting this blog entry, The Walking Dead Zombie Pop Up Café and the outdoor screening of The Walking Dead Season 4 are open to the public and if you are making your way down to Sentosa Island now, don’t forget to check them out at the Quarantine Carnival, Sentosa Siloso Beach!

We have been using SingTel’s 4G network for awhile now and the experience is truly enjoyable! Make no mistakes about it; though we know that many people may be skeptical about SingTel’s 4G network, our experience with it has proven that SingTel’s 4G network is undeniably the best in Singapore. 4G mobile network is essentially known as fourth generation mobile network and it is technically termed as Long Term Evolution [LTE]. With 4G network, the speeds at which data is being transferred are typically faster than using 3G network.
In case you’re wondering, SingTel’s 4G network expansion does not affect the quality of SingTel’s 3G network services in any way because both SingTel’s 3G and 4G services operate on separate networks. As a matter of fact, with more mobile users adopting 4G services, the quality of 3G services are expected to improve over time.
Just to let you know, we were issued with a review kit that consisted of a Huawei E392 USB Dongle and a SIM Card that hooks up to SingTel’s 4G network. Though the Huawei E392 USB Dongle wasn’t as compact as we hope for it to be, it was nevertheless still portable to carry around.

Over the last 1 month, we were using SingTel’s 4G Network for all of our blogging needs and that includes uploading of photos, downloading of documents, surfing the Internet for information and streaming Youtube videos. Since we’re always out and about, we have tried using SingTel’s 4G Network at various locations and we must say, the speed is amazingly fast!
This is the sort of speed that we usually get when using SingTel’s 4G Network.
However, in case you’re wondering, we don’t achieve such fantastic results when we’re underground in the MRT Tunnels and at times, we might even get a 3G network instead of a 4G network. Even then, we still get a typical download speed range of 1.7 Mbps to 4.8 Mbps.
The speed range may vary between users and it is subjected to the device used, hardware and software limitation, 4G network coverage/traffic, distance between user and base station, nature of built-up area, source of website and other external factors.
SingTel is deploying cutting edge Multiple Input Multiple Output [MIMO] technology for 4G subscribers to enjoy download speeds of up to 150Mbps! That is double the 75Mbps speeds of conventional 4G networks and it has already been deployed in shopping malls like Serangoon Nex and Tampines Mall.
