Four and a half years after the introduction of
FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping, it seems this program is coming to an end.
Those items that qualified for FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping that I bought during Black Friday 2017 are no longer qualified.

SmartThings V2 Hub (UK) is retailing for £99.99 (S$176) on Amazon UK.
Because I am shipping to Singapore, I get VAT exemption of 20% and hence the price before VAT is £83.33 (S$147).

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

Amazon Prime Now is now available in Singapore. Amazon Prime Now offers household items and essentials you need every day plus some of the best selling items on Amazon.
Usually Amazon Prime Now requires a membership subscription. But for the launch of Amazon Prime Now in Singapore, you can give it a go without membership for a limited period of time.

I got my

I was looking for a USB-C Ethernet adapter and came across the
Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter which retails for S$49 in Apple Stores and Anker USB-C Aluminum Portable Gigabit Ethernet Port Network Adapter which retails for US$22.99 (S$32) on Amazon.
I find that the Belkin Ethernet adapter is overpriced and if you want to get the Anker Ethernet adapter, you might as well top up a little more to get the

If you are looking to use a USB-C to USB-Cable to charge your USB-C MacBook Pro, your USB-C power adapter and USB-C cable need to support

It is tough to find a USB-C to DisplayPort Cable or USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter. I have not found any physical stores in Singapore selling it yet. Instead, you have to get it from online stores like
Lazada or Amazon.
For USB-C to DisplayPort cable, I bought mine from Amazon as there are more choices to choose from.
