Amazon Echo Spot was on discount during Valentine’s Day week. The usual retail price is US$129.99 (S$173), and during the promotion, the price went down to US$114.99 (S$153).
As usual, all Amazon Echo products don’t ship to Singapore directly. So you have to use a freight forwarder like
HopShopGo. Amazon Echo Spot – Box Front

eero Beacon usual price is US$149 (S$199). But on 27th December 2017, they had a sale where it was discounted to US$99 (S$132) with the discount code BEACON99.
Shipping within the US is free, and hence I sent it to my favorite fright forwarder,

Finally jumped onto the
Google Home bandwagon.
Last year, I decided not to buy it despite it being priced at US$99 (S$136) because the ecosystem was not very mature yet. Fast forward six months later, it has improved quite a bit.

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
