SGShop Review: First Time Shipping from China by Sea

God created the world, everything else is made in China. Buying things from China is a lot cheaper and recently the quality is decent too especially considering the price. Value for money is what you will get from most of your purchases from China. Most of you should be familiar with the online retailer Amazon. In China, they have TaoBao.

LeeQixian.com My Personal Portfolio Website

I’ve decided to put up a personal portfolio website on LeeQixian.com to document and showcase some of the works I’ve done so far. It will be the place where I’ll keep track of current, past and future projects that I am a part of.

This site, SwiftWorld.net, will continue to be the place where I document my thoughts, publish guides, videos and everything else that interests me (as it has always been).

Value Korean 40” 4K Monitors – Information and Comparison of the Different Brands and Models
