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

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.
