It took many turns of coincidence events that happened to fall on the weekend and I decided to travel more than 300 kilometers down to Tokyo, even though I just returned from Malaysia less than a week before that. I will be blogging about those events and trips on different entries later on.
Tokyo Tower.I just got myself two new gadgets during my Tokyo trip. I am not trying to give a wrong impression or meaning, but I think I can declare that this is my "Gadget Year". Only five months ago I got myself a new laptop and iPod. Now, I got another two new stuff. Guess what are those.
I did not buy them just for the sake of buying because the old ones have decided it is time for them to rest for once and for all. My mobile phone has been giving me problems since like forever. The battery was weak, I had to charge it almost everyday. Then recently, just before I went back to Malaysia, another problem cropped out. The speaker was spoilt and I couldn't hear the voice of the person I am talking to when I am talking on the phone. Sending it to the shop for repair wasn't an option because the I was too "smart" to cancel the warranty a few months back, thinking that nothing would go wrong.
The twenty-four month contract of the phone is over, so I decided to get a new phone instead. Remember I dropped a hint before that I went to as many as five shops to look for something? Yes, I was looking whether they still have the black colour set of the phone model I wanted. All shops told me they were out of stock, hence I decided to get my phone in Akihabara, Tokyo (equivalent to Low Yatt Plaza, but it is very much bigger) instead.
Just if you are wondering why I am not getting an iPhone, well I am just not a fan of it. Too many applications on one single gadget will make me have headache haha.
I finally went for Softbank 830CA.
That is the story about my new phone. Now, it is time for my digital camera.
I dropped my digital camera a few months back, on the tar road and the camera became dented; in fact, it was so bad that I could see the interior of the camera. Miraculously, it was still useable and I continued using it for a good several months, until one evening, the lens couldn't focus properly and it began to make some sound.
I know it was just a matter of time before I need to get one. People who knows me well enough will surely know that camera plays such an important role in my life. In other words, I cannot live without camera haha.
A day before I leave Tokyo, I was telling my friend, "Ei, I am thinking about getting a new camera-lah". Anyway, earlier that day, we were window shopping at Ginza and out of a sudden, he decided to get a MacBook Pro when we were inside the Apple Store. But his case wasn't as random and spontaneous as me because he has been targeting to get that laptop for some time already. As for me, I don't even know what model of camera to take.
As spontaneous as it might sound, I got my new camera in less than an hour after that.Say hello to my new Canon IXY DIGITAL 930 IS.
I wanted to continue to remain loyal by getting a Sony model, but somehow I saw a model by Canon which attracted me straight away. I am not a fan of touchscreen, no matter it is a camera, mobile phone or anything. Although this model has touchscreen function, the other specifications was just too hard for me to resist. I will not go too deep into the technical stuff because I believe not many people would understand them anyway, which includes me too haha.
Ohh yea, the old Sony DSC-T100 is no longer usable anymore. Bye bye camera and thank you for everything.
