Domestic Trip by RoadBike

After pandemic, Work from home culture has been becoming standard for work style in IT industry. My company is also strictly adopting this style to daily life. As result, my daily steps which is counting by iPhone/Apple Watch, has been dropped to half of past averages.

I wanted to ride bicycle in my daily life, but not so motivated because here Singapore is always hot and humid, I thought it’s very tough condition for bike beginner. But now realised that it’s wrong, since temperature here is stable and no need to care about season changing. So it’s good to run before sunrise and sunset.

And I luckily got used roadbike from my colleagues. So started my roadbike life after backed to Singapore and ended SHN(Stay home Notice 14days in home). Singapore is very compact country, it’s available to everywhere by bike. Now I’m enjoying domestic travel by bike with taking photo as below.








Work From Home

My work from home has been started from mid of Feb 2020. Because in Singapore, there were some infected person by covid-19 who came back from china. It seemed earlier than another countries. After beginning of March, another countries in the world wide had faced covid-19 difficulty.

And due to private matter, I temporarily backed to japan from mid of March, have been staying in tokyo for 1.5 months under this situation. It means mostly over 2 months, i work from home. 

So how i can make comfortable work place in my home is getting important to stay long time. I tried to enrich some equipment in my room.  Let me briefly explain what i brought in recently.

First one is PC stand for MacBook Air. Angle for Laptop display is always lower than natural eyes position, it means neck got unnecessary load and makes stiff upper back. To adjust angle, stand for laptop is needed. I found best designed stand for MacBook Air, it’s completely thinner when folded and no issue to store it on case without removing.


A bit expensive but it’s worth to buy.


Another one is sub display to extend MacBook Air’s workspace. There are many type of monitor recently, but to care about future’s flexibility, I selected mobile monitor which is enable to be attached with monitor arms, also can power by only Type C without AC adopter. Upon on the condition, Below one was bast and price when i bought was around 30,000 JPY, but no ups to 40,000 JPY because it may be by many work from home. 

It’s not big size among no mobile display with same price zone. But it’s ok as second display and 4K is well matching with MacBook Air’s Retina quality.

Actually I bought more product to make comfortable home desk space. So sometime i may write this kind of article in future.


I had been using Apple Watch 2 to receive any type of message on the phone. Because of that, i was recognised that person seriously care time management. but it’s totally different what i did. Since i just checked messages in business hours. But someone felt I carefully checked time because it’s watch.

In this December, as reward to me, i finally brought Apple Watch 5 Hermes Version. Official name is “40mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case with Noir Swift Leather Double Tour” on Marina Bay Sands Hermes shop. Actually it’s first time buy product in offical Hermes shop. I’m still far from those famous brand shop…. But that watch has been sold out in Apple store in Japan and Singapore, also online. I luckily found it. So no time to wonder to buy….. Staff in the shop said that “Some men look for Double Tour band, but only men who has slender arms can wear it. Mostly it’s for women.”

Simply say, it’s expensive as digital watch… And my functional expectation is same as Apple Watch 2 had. But I’m feeling well fit with my hands. I believe i can use this longer term. 

Rambling with GR3

I used GRD4, GR2 and GR3. It’s naturally getting advanced as functionality. With that, the agility to take snapshots has been most improved point.

Singapore F1 GP

It has passed over three years after moved to here from Japan. Actually i brought F1 ticket 3 years ago when i moved to Singapore. But that time, I couldn’t watch in place since I caught a cold that time. This was first time to watch F1 Main racing in Singapore. 

As it’s well known, there were many time to face car incident and ran safety car during racing, because Singapore F1 GP course is very difficult one by  many sharp curve.
