I was able to resist you twice, but you were always there all the time. You didn’t leave me alone for over two years, you were like a nightmare that kept showing up at the back of my head almost every night and day.
This time, I can longer resist you. Yeah I finally gave in, you’re such a temptation! Knowing me, I can’t promise you that I will keep you for years. But for now, I will enjoy your company and I will keep you close to me… Mr. new iPad
Gadgets are cool stuff, it’s just that I’m not a gadget enthusiast. I’m happy having just the basic ones; laptop, netbook, iPod Touch and of course a mobile phone.
I’m always hesitant when it comes to buying a latest piece of gadget. I don’t know why, maybe because I got used to having them as presents. Last month was my birthday month, and I was thinking of getting myself a nice birthday present; and after a few days I finally decided to purchase a new mobile phone. Well, I still got two mobile phones and they are both in good working condition but I just couldn’t resist the urge to buy one. So, I got myself the new Nokia N8. I love its features especially the 12MP camera and I enjoy the three customizable home pages; ideal for customizing and grouping application shortcuts. I was originally thinking of going away, maybe a short trip within the region, but I ended up getting a new mobile phone which I really don’t need, but at least I’m happy with my purchase. I will just post the two old phones on eBay, it’s better to get a few dollars from them rather than turning them into paper weights 🙂
The new item inside my handbag
I love the widgets feature of this phone as I don’t need to be in front of the t.v. to watch the latest news or go online to access my Facebook accounts.
Waking up as early as 11am on a Sunday is very rare. I normally get up after 1pm or whenever I’m feeling hungry already. Let’s just say that I’m just taking advantage of the weekend. This Sunday is very unusual as I got up at 11am, I was forcing myself to go back to sleep but I was feeling kind of hungry already so I got up and made myself a cup of coffee and toasts. I was still feeling too lazy to go back to decluttering my place (which I started last night) so I thought maybe I should go online a bit to check my inbox then a quick peek on wordpress.
As I was browsing on several sites, I came across an article about iPad. Then suddenly I thought of getting myself one. I must admit I’m not that much into gadgets, I’m already happy with the basics. I love having a few essentials, it’s just that I’m not the kind of person who buys a new mobile phone or a new iPod after a few months or whenever there’s a new model. I was staring at the pictures of iPad on my screen and trying to figure out if I really need it. I was trying to convince myself that I need one. If I have it, I can go online anywhere anytime and it’s much lighter and smaller than my netbook so I can carry them around in my handbag and the best thing is there’s Wordpress for iOS. Then suddenly it hit me that I have an iPod touch which I can use if I just want to have a quick read while sitting and having cappuccino at the coffee shop. But God knows where the iTouch is now, I haven’t used it for quite a long time now. I also got reminded of my old PDA that I found in one of the boxes last month while cleaning. It has been there for years now and it’s totally broken now; it was still working when I stopped using it though.
This iPad looks interesting, but do I really need it? Maybe I’m just being impulsive again, and I might also forget all about it after a few months. I guess I need to wait for a couple of months before I finally decide if I’m getting myself one. Besides I can already go somewhere with its price. Obviously I still prefer traveling and exploring other places over buying gadgets 🙂
It’s been over a week now since my last proper “net time”. Got really busy with work before and after the 2-day break. Taking at least 2 days off is kind of tricky these days as there’s so much to do with so little time. Well, at least I had a really great time with Richard even if it was for just a few days…. few really busy days.. but I got a nice present again, a cute little pink gadget. He never fails to surprise me, and I got really touched by his effort of finding this little pink thing, he knows that i love pinks.
This time we were not able to go away on holiday as there was a more important thing to sort out, I hope that we’ll be able to go away next time, perhaps Nepal. But I’m not ready to go trekking yet. I guess I better start with the preparations soon, but God knows what I’m like when it comes to trekking 🙂 I really wish I would be able to do a proper trek soon. I know Richard would be very happy if I could go (proper) trekking with him.
I still got loads of pending posts but I cant seem to have time to edit the photos these days. Hopefully I can do at least one post every night.
