Many of you might not know GoPro Company is going down the hill. Their recent Hero 6 has not got many reviews. So is GoPro Hero 5 Session worth getting it?

Samsung Screwed Up My Phone


I have never been a Samsung fan, Sony have always been my choice for last 15 years. Back in Singapore 2016 my son had a Samsung S7 and he had made me change my mine. Back then Sony did not have the phone of choice so I have decided to purchased a Samsung S7. 

The S7 was my adventure tough phone, made videos, Navigate, edited videos for Youtube, entertainment  etc. Recently due to poor anger management I have damage the screen.

So the phone was sent for replacement screen and when it came back the led and sensor was not working. Back it when for service and when it returned I asked if the phone is still waterproof and I did not get an answer. I decided to put it to the test and it failed!!

The service center called and told me the phone could not be repaired and they can't do anything about it!!!

Moral of the story if you send your phone for repair it is best you check with them. I made this video so everyone around the world can take note about this problem. As for me now if I do not get an answer I will bring this to Consumer Association. 



Titanium Canteen Set


Note: Below is a video I have made, this is the first time using and setup.

Before I start the post, first of all I like to thanks Campers' Corner Singapore for sponsoring this Titanium Canteen Set. It has been a great addition to our outdoor kit. 

Titanium Canteen Set do not come cheap, I wanted this for quite sometime and was fortunate enough Campers' Corner gave this set to me. 

Why this is not cheap is simply because the Canteen alone makes up of 3 three pieces to make one, the bottom, top half is welded together than follow by the screw thread. That is the reason you find the canteen has a middle line and that is the joining area. 

I am glad it fitted firmly in my Eagle Creek Backpack as the pic show above. This backpack have traveled around World the for 15 years.

Usually I will carry a cookset and Nalgene bottle with Snow Peak Mug which nested firmly for both me and partner used. 

With this new setup, I will save space in the backpack and carry less weight. The canteen itself has 1200ml and mug 600ml capacity. That is more than enough for our traveling needs.

Now it will also be a great addition to my solo outdoor needs.  My outdoor set will be used with water filter to fill the mug, boil it and pour into the canteen. As it is made of Titanium, it will cool very fast. I will still carry a 450ml Titanium Snow Peak Mug for drinks mix. Inside the mug will store Alcohol Stove.  



AMG Titanium Large Cook Pot





This is a short review on AMG Titanium Cook Pot. The last review I did on a Medium Pot Set was a while back. This review is just to show how the medium and large Pot set can nested perfectly.

Till today, we have use the medium pot set extensively at home and it served us well. Quality built still remain the same.

Cheap Survival Water proof Wind proof Lighter

 

I have bought a few of such high end lighter in my life just as Bruton lighter. Today I found out it was a waste of $$. In this video, I will show how a cheap lighter can compare to those high priced lighter for outdoor that is waterproof and windproof for a fraction of a price.

Campers' Corner Singapore


It has has been a while since I have posted. Was back in Singapore recently and decided to make a video on my favorite outdoor shop in Singapore. Watch it how this camping store is so different from others.

Calvin has been a great host and one thing I got from him is a Titanium Canteen which I have been thinking for a while to buy one. Now he had sponsor me on and the video will be coming up soon how this setup saves me weight and space.  


GOPRO Hero 5 Session Action Camera


This topic will not be discussing the specification on the above subject, this you can find on the internet but more on my motivation on getting it which I have been scouting for months from Singapore, Taiwan and around the World. 

I do own a GoPro Hero 3 Silver, since then Gopro has been launching new models almost every year. One of the model that caught my eyes was the Hero 4 Session. Having use the previous Hero 3 Silver, the Hero 4 Session was a new kid at the block with build in waterproof housing and small form factor.
