In case you didn’t hear about it, the Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 was selling like hotcakes during the recent IT Show. Going at a promo price of $199, the Sound Blaster Roar was sold out everyday by mid afternoon. Creative said that 1 Sound Blaster Roar was sold every minute.
I managed to try out the Sound Blaster Roar at the crowded Creative IT Show booth last weekend and I’m impressed by the sound quality. Don’t take my words for it. Go to the stores and try it yourself. This might be Creative’s comeback.
The original retail price for the Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 is S$338. Creative is selling it at a special promo price of S$199 during the IT Show and will be extending this pricing till 10 March 2014 on their online store.

Singapore is currently in the midst of its longest-ever dry spell, where rain has not fallen for 27 days between Jan 13 and Feb 8. According to NEA, the dry weather will probably persist into the first half of next month.
But luckily for Singapore, we still have a healthy level of water in the reservoirs. This is because PUB has increased the amount of NEWater it injects into the reservoirs and the desalination plants are working at near full capacity. These two sources were aable to provide 55 per cent of the water demands. Imported water from Malaysia make up the remaining water demand.
As a results, there is no need for Singapore to implement water rationing. The last time Singapore had water rationing was back in the 1960s.
According to PUB, water consumption has increased slightly last week. The agency will send advisories on water conservation methods. Companies are being encouraged to switch off their water features while Town Council may reduce the frequency of their cleaning using water.
I think we should give credits where credit is due. PUD did a great job by making sure Singapore have enough water supply during this long dry spell. All thanks to the forward planning with NEWater and desalination plants. Good job guys!
