5 Things You Should Know This Week: 12 November 2018

These are some of the news you should know this week:

1. LG XBOOM Go Portable Speakers are now in Singapore

The launch of XBOOM Go (models PK7/PK5/PK3) allows even more music lovers to enjoy the benefits of LG's audi expertise. XBOOM Go embraces the brand's heritage of powerful sound and party fun and is designed to captivate listeners with both quality and user convenience. With Meridian’s advanced audio technology, XBOOM Go speakers deliver clear treble and strong bass as well as exceptionally powerful, accurate sound despite their compact sizes. The outstanding sound quality of the portable speakers is enhanced by their dual passive radiators.

The XBOOM Go series features the first wireless speakers to support aptX™ HD from Qualcomm for superb lossless 24bit/576kbps hi-res streaming audio. Also, these Bluetooth streaming methods allow better audio transmission with less noise in the signal. LG has in corporated the aptX™ into the PK3 and aptX™ HD into the PK5 and PK7.




The XBOOM Go speakers feature a microphone that functions as a speakerphone. Not only that, users can activate Google Assistant or Siri directly from the speaker using voice command. The PK5 and PK7 both have built-in lighting that can pulse in multiple colours to the beat, and hence turn any space into a dance floor. The Blue tooth Application allows users to set the lights any way they want.

An ideal choice for pool parties, the XBOOM Go speakers are splash proof. The X-Grip design in the PK5 and PK7 makes them easy to carry, and is built for long-usage purposes for those all-night celebrations. The design also angles the front-facing speakers towards a listener’s ears, resulting in a more heightened and impactful audio experience.

3. BloomBack’s exclusive Christmas collection of preserved flowers

Still contemplating on what to give as presents this festive season? What about preserved flowers?

Preserved flowers are the perfect gifts to capture the Christmas spirit so you and your loved ones can experience the love and magic of the holidays all year round. Encased within pretty glass domes, they make beautiful long-lasting centrepieces for your holiday party. BloomBack customers enjoy $10 off for a minimum spend of $120 on any preserved flowers, with free shipping for a minimum spend of $150.

To preserve a real flower, all the water content out is drawn out along with proteins, sugar, and pigments, carefully using special non-toxic and non-corrosive chemicals. The result is really delicate translucent petals. The flower is then “fed” with another eco-certified chemical solution that gives it its shape. Chemists are then able to add a whole variety of smells and vibrant colours too by introducing different pigments and essential oils. Thanks to this advanced technology, preserved blooms can last for at least a year and up to 10 years. Preserved flowers require little maintenance.

Bliss, $79

Season's Greetings, $159

Perfect Match, $179

BloomBack offers an extensive range of designs to choose from, including glass domes, terrariums, bouquets, and more. Cute accessories like fairy lights can be added to jazz the designs up; and selected pieces even come with Bluetooth speakers. All designs can be customised to suit your budget and theme.
