Now that I settled into a new home, it is time to carve out a nook for my stuff. I have been having this old Lego set, with me which I was yet to open. This is my first ever lego set, the #75015 Star War Corporate Alliance Tank Droid.  It is a 2013 model, now retired. It […]


On their 2nd anniversary, Xiaomi restocked their sold out products and I bought couple of their power banks for friends staying abroad.

When I first saw this, I thought this is an another internet fake. But turns it is not. The video has got over 11 million views and got 1 million in crowd-funding indiegogo page.
