Nice collection bro. Like your table design.
I wish my pitis collection will be improving in the near future.

Thank you. It seems that Blogspot does not provide any Table options to use it in our entries. I had to relook at the HTML language again. Still finding ways on how to add borders to my table. Haha so troublesome.
