I was looking for an adapter that allows me to output to two external displays using just a single port and I realized that USB-C is not the way to go. USB-C specifications only allow one external display per USB-C port.
So the next logical thing to search is for Thunderbolt 3 adapters and I found the
Cable Matters Thunderbolt 3 to Dual 4K or Single 5K DisplayPort Adapter from Amazon retailing for US$79.99 (S$112). Cable Matters Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter – Box Front

Anker PowerPort 6 5V/12A 6-Port Wall Charger on Amazon for US$20.49 (S$29).
Its usual retail price is US$26.99 (S$38) but because of an
ongoing promotion, you can use the promo code, GEYC7LFE, and it will give you a discount of US$6.50. Anker PowerPort 6 5V/12A 6-Port Wall Charger – Box Front

I guess most people have not heard of the brand Freecam before. If you tried Googling for the word “freecam”, you would chance upon a lot of NSFW links. I wished they have a better name.

There are tons and tons of Fidget Spinners in the market. I am sure the source is all the same in some factory in China. The companies just order in bulk and just add their brand logo to it.
I have been reading through the subreddit,
/r/FidgetSpinners, on fidget spinners and there are a couple of sites they recommend, Fast Tech, Fidget HQ and Fidget LA. Fidget Tri-Spinner – Container

Last November, when I was traveling to Munich, Germany, for the launch of the Huawei Mate 9, I met
Kien Lee, who is the founder of Senatus.
He recommended me the Pacsafe Venturesafe 325 GII Anti-Theft Cross Body Pack. At that time, I wasn’t looking for a new travel bag as I was using the
Crumpler Bag Dry Red No. 2 Sling Bag for most of my travelings. Pacsafe Venturesafe 325 GII – With Tag
