Latest Addition!

17 Sep

And introducing the latest addition to our family…….. Tada!!

iPhone 4

iPhone 4

Woah-hooo… Didn’t expect to get it so soon… I thought we’ll have to wait for another 2-3 weeks. We were so excited yesterday when the Singtel person said that it’s gonna be delivered to us on the same day!

And.. can you believe it… For the first time ever, we’re actually following the trend?? Hahahaa.. Somehow normally we’re 1 trend too late.. But now we got something that’s still on trend 😀

The first impression… oh it looks so sleek and nice to use!! Very user friendly, and (quite paiseh to say this) I actually just knew that it can connect to wi-fi!!! Ahem ok don’t laugh at me.. I’m not really following trend on technology.. So I think it’s very cool that it can connect to wi-fi (and so, we can download the apps for free, without data charge whatsoever).

So last night, I’ve downloaded few apps, all for Vio actually. All are free mini games for toddlers, and I think they’re really not bad! This morning Vio was playing with one of them, and he really laughed it out. Apparently he was playing Talking Tom Cat.

Talking Tom Cat

I think this app is reaaalll cute! The cat can response to ur touches (purr happily, or angry if u punch him). And the best part is, he can imitate whatever u say, but in cute voice. And this what makes Vio laughed to his heart content. Vio said many things and the cat said the same thing back, and “HAHAHAA” he’ll then start laughing (and the cat can laugh back too).

I’m sure there are many other great apps out there! Can’t wait to discover more apps. Guess we’ll have more time to play with it during the weekend 😉

Our New “Toys”

24 Feb

From a long long long time ago, pi had wanted to have a game console, but then it was always a “wish” until recently. When we went to Iyok’s place for a gathering, we played with his Nintendo Wii and it was quite fun actually, especially for gatherings.

After that, the thought of having a game console was much stronger. And it was only between Nintendo Wii and PS3. Since PS3 price was much more expensive, and there were only little games launched for PS3 so far, we decided to go for Nintendo Wii. And….. at the same time, a friend of mine happen to think of selling her Wii!

So in the end we bought the Nintendo Wii over from my friend, and ever since then, pi was playing it everyday. OK, we got it only 5 days ago, so it’s not that bad. Haahahaa…

We tried the Wii Sports (pi’s mum also playing the Bowling game, btw. And she defeated pi & me!). I love the bowling and tennis game. After that, pi started playing Wolverine. I’ve asked my brother in law to help us get some pirated games at Jakarta, and he did! At Rp 10.000,- per piece only. Wowwww… less than $2!! Jakarta is really the best place for getting pirated things.. Hahaa!

A new…

… handphone!! Yup yup.. I got a new handphone last night! Kekekeke.. seems like I got lots of new gadget this week hor?

To tell you the truth.. I don’t really know much about this handphone.. I just like how it looks like.. heheheee… and I haven’t played much with it, so no review to be given (yet).

Last night pi and I went to JP to recontract our MIO plan. Yeah as you might have known, we need it rather urgently.. as there’s no internet connection at home now! And internet is just a basic necessity nowadays.. lol.. The queue was quite loooong.. but luckily we’re given an “X” queue.. which I supposed means express.. so the wait was not too long.. And the Singtel guy was saying that the earliest apptment to install the new modem would be.. 24 Sept! Woah that’s still rather long.. 1 more week without internet! So we protested and say that we don’t have a modem at home (because our current one spoiled, and Singtel was saying not replacing it unless we recontract), and now we need to wait (and pay) for 1 more week without using the service at all! Lucky the guy was quite nice.. He finally gave a free 1 month waiver for the mio plan! heheeee.. so in the end pi & i was quite happy and don’t mind waiting for 1 week. lol.. but 1 thing that upset us.. the queue for paying was so LONG.. walao.. wanna pay also need to queue for that long -_-

Ahh… and today lunch time I went to Robinsons to play Spin the Wheel for cardmember’s birthday month. Same as last year, I’m aiming for the Shop for Free.. But last year I got $10 John Little voucher with $60 min purchase, which is useless as it can’t be used with any other discounts. And this year I got.. a spa voucher.. haiz… so disappointed.. Esp coz I just got another spa voucher from comex and that one is much more interesting compared to this one….

Many spoilt things = many NEW things!

14 Sep

It’s just amazing how can so many things spoilt at the same time! Somewhere early last week, suddenly my 2 year old Akira TV refused to wake up from its long sleep. It’s not really surprising actually, considering the TV was bought at a warehouse sale in Jakarta. Yes yes.. it’s Jakarta! Not SG! We brought it all the way during one of our flight back to SG. Who knows how bad treatment it gets during the flight! In fact, we were quite surprised that it can last quite long 😀

Apart from the TV, my newest and latest fan, was also misteriously dead! Don’t ever buy Taiyo fan! It’s only a few months old! I think it can’t take the “work load” at my place, where it’s always on.. kekekekek..

And.. (that’s not all)… my beloved Internet (and home phone) is also misteriously not working! Arrrrrrgggggghhhhh… and btw, I’ve just confirmed with Singtel, since it’s few days after the 2 years contract end, they’re not going to replace it unless we sign a new contract! What the…. -_- such a lousy service!

So anyway… pi and I anyway were taking leave to go to Comex on 11 Sept 2009. So… we begun the day with.. cake cutting and photo taking! hehehee.. yeah haven’t got the chance to cut the cake the day before as pi got class until very late..

After that we went to collect pi’s GCIP cert somewhere near Amoy, and went to a complimentary 30 mins back massage from TrueSpa @ Taka. It was quite nice and relaxing! And surprisingly, not so hardselling.. Afterwards we went to have Ayam Penyet for lunch (yummy!) and finally heading off to Suntec to go to the Comex..

Canon Digital IXUS 100IS

Canon Digital IXUS 100IS

Introducing.. my new digital camera! A bday gift from pi.. hehehehee.. I love it very much! We got it at Comex at quite a steal, as got lots of freebies: SD 16GB (I don’t think I’ll ever make it full!), extra battery, casing, SD card reader, and also LCD protector (that.. uhm.. I stupidly took out the wrong side……. so in the end.. it can’t be used… haiz…) Aiyo, I should’ve asked for a tripod too as a freebie!

Samsung LE26B350

And just look at how pretty our new TV is! Uhm apparently it’s quite difficult to find a TV smaller than 32″! We finally bought a 26″ Samsung HD TV from Series 3. I don’t really know what Series 3 means, but anyway the pic was great! Vio was very attracted to the new TV, and he loves to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He can even smile to the TV! Maybe the old TV was too small or the color not attractive enough.. Uh-oh.. is that a bad sign?? Shouldn’t let him watch too much TV.. Oh yeah, we also got a new DVD player as a freebies from this TV.. not bad.. considering our DVD player is already half-way spoilt (sudden stops midway the movies, and continue after 1-2 secs..)

Other than that.. pi also bought a new LCD monitor! oooohh.. finally we have a LCD monitor! And finally the bulky old monitor will go from our house.. kekekekek… apparently all the LCD monitor nowadays are also HD ready. wow.. the pic was gooood, and pi was happy playing Marvel games with veeeeery nice graphic!

That’s about all of our purchase from Comex.. spent >1k! Aiyo.. broke broke.. and.. we got 2 spa vouchers from Atos Wellness! kekekeke.. just nice hor.. can use together at the same time 😀

During the weekend.. took a lot of photos and videos (HD one!) using my new camera.. kekekekek.. so far I quite like the photos.. much easier to take photos of vio, compared to using the old olympus camera.. and the videos have a very LOUD voice, with clear picture! happy happy..

We also went to Leo & Mereel’s Wedding at Raffles Hotel. It’s the first time we bring Vio to a wedding! It’s a garden wedding, so can’t dress him too “thick”.

Savio.. Can I have your teether too?

Vio was also having fun time playing with the leaves! Oops.. Vio is not environment-friendly.. as he’s ‘killing’ few leaves.. haha.. but he’s having fun and laughing..

We also just found out that Vio can understand simple instructions.. He can clap his hands when we ask him too! Amazing right? 😉

Vio also loves to play with daddy. He laughed his heart out last night, when pi pretending to cough and cough and cough. He laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed.. arrgghh.. so cuuteeeeeee…
