What Have You Bought on 11.11

My hands are not fast enough for the Razer and Marshall Surprise Boxes. The boxes were out of stock within 10 seconds when I tried to complete my transaction. However, I managed to grab myself a HP surprise box from Lazada instead. According to blog reviews I read, the item in the surprise box is worth more than S$100 but you only pay S$29 for it.
