Reflection

It’s really a pleasure to have a personal backstage view of my favorite gadgets, many of which lay beside me as I sleep through my studying years. It’s also really surprising to see what’s beautiful outside can also be so beautiful inside. I hope you enjoyed indulging in your own gadget’s "inner beauty" too.
