I guess I will be joining the queue again this year. But thinking of this makes me feel tired already. Each step is quite tiring and nail biting one

  • Got to keep checking Maxis website of when the register of interest page will be available
  • Deciding which slot to go
  • Worrying whether register of interest request actually got through to Maxis
  • Waiting for the confirmation email that I have been registered for the slot I’m choosing
  • Get in the queue 5 hours early to get the front spot, or else the queue will be very long

But before any other thing, lets clear the very fundamental decision first. Which color will I want to get? Black or White?

I’ve been reading my friend’s twitter about the same question, and it seems that most of the people are going for black. But I just don’t know. I still feel like getting the white one. And I am 95% confirmed that I will be going for white.
