Getting my adapters ready for my trip overseas. I have a pretty good collection, but always like to look up what I need. The only electrical device I bring is my Mac laptop and the charger for my camera battery, and since both can handle 220v, all I need are the adapters. From right to left is one I might need in Japan if I have only a 2 prong outlet (they have the same plus as US), then for Singapore, and on the right, the 3 prong for Hong Kong.

Complacency is the time when we stop challenging ourselves. It is when we have been in a state of homeostasis for too long and are teetering on the brink of decline in growth.
