GSC UOB Smart$ Point Redemption Ended

When I tried to redeem my UOB Smart$ points today, I was told that GSC has stopped doing that from midnight on Jun 19, 2018. They will continue to let us earn UOB Smart$ points until Jun 30, 2018.

I guess the number of Merchants supporting UOB Smart$ points is shrinking. The first was BHPetrol on Jun 25, 2017. Looks like UOB card is getting less attractive now.

To Delay My Phone Purchase

I was tempted to buy a new phone with One Plus 5 was announced. A few things had driven my initial decision to select One Plus:
There was the Screen Overlay Issue, which I finally resolved.Then there was the ability to create multiple user, but the reason disappeared after I learned about work profile (also known as Android for Work). Another driving factor was the thought of better camera (previously affected by the Screen Overlay Issue). However, One Plus One still provide great photos. Low light photos are still a problem but that is still true with One Plus Five. The other factor I look for in Android phones are the upgrades provided but it seems the maximum number of years for most phones are still two years - One Plus One appears to be among one of the exceptions.

So for now, I will continue to stay with One Plus One for at least another year. The following are some of the photos I took with my phone.
