    What to look out before installing Solar Panel?

    If you are reading this, congratulation. You are taking the first step to pay tribute to the earth and soon will have a taste of abundance. Yes, abundance! I recently installed a 6.48 KWH solar panel (270 W x 24 panels). Right now, I got to enjoy the followings: I mentioned abundance earlier.

As it allows multiple connections, I was able to connect my iphone, surface pro, wife’s ipad, and her…

    Should I Read ‘Alibaba – The House that Jack Ma Built’ by Duncan Clark?

    I just recently finished Alibaba – The House that Jack Ma Built book by Duncan Clark. Before reading it, I read mixed review about the book. I went ahead buying and reading it anyway. If you are  in the same position as I was, here is the stage of knowledge I was before reading it. A fan of Jack Ma.
