Play-Asia Deal of the Week

Every week, Play-Asia does some kinda inventory purge and puts out a single non-bargain bin game at bargain bin prices.

This week, it’s Timeshift for the Xbox 360 at approximately SGD$25 (inclusive of shipping).

It scored a rather respectable 70% average on Metacritic. Seeing as it’s a pretty slow quarter for games, I thought I might put this out there. Here’s my affiliate link to the store: Buy Timeshift at

Offer ends next Tuesday, the 24th of February.

Where I used to live

Central Singapore Panorama

This is the view I grew up with for about nine years until we moved. The sun rose in the East to the left and set over behind those trees on the right. In the middle between some buildings you can just make out some of Orchard Road, Far East Plaza and the Tangs pagoda, in particular. Every year during the National Day Parade, we’d stand out on the balcony here and try to see the fireworks to the East. As Singapore developed, taller buildings rose and blocked off all but the highest-rising rockets.

This was taken with an iPhone 3G and stitched together (3 photos) with the Pano app. Some exposure enhancement was later applied in Photoshop and Lightroom.
