5 THINGS ON MY DESK

They say that one's personality shows through one's possessions. Here, five Swiberites shared a peek into theirs

Chee Hung's desk is so "legally organized" and his list of top 5 things showed his no nonsense and polite nature

Michael probably spends more time on other people's desks helping them with their computer problems but "other people's" things still followed him on his own desk as it's literally cluttered with stuff by and for...other people of course!
