Of life and...still life

It's been a while since I last wrote a seemingly well-structured post here. Aside from attending my ex-neighbour Yolande's convo on last Monday and some catastrophes here and there, nothing much happened till then. Speaking of the catastrophes, well, I'd better make it short.

Basically here's what had happened over the past 2 weeks:
  1. My father's motorcycle got stolen. It's an old motorcycle but still, there's somebody practically "blind" out there! Never mind, now I can get a ride on a brand new Honda Wave then. :P
  2. The moment before it got stolen, one of my small little car's tires died. I'd had to seek help from the passer-by because I had "suddenly" forgotten how to change a spare tire. Oh well. Bad short-term memory. >.<
  3. After 2 days, the small little car finally got into "hospital". It's not my fault. My dad kept pressing the accelerator when he supposedly should be pressing on break. Anyway, he's all good now. But the small little car doesn't. Hopefully it will be alright by next week.
Oh. And here's one of the pic we took during Yolande's convo. :)

On an unrelated side note, I had received my birthday present from my buddy, Billy, few days back. You couldn't imagine my shocking response of receiving my present practically one month in advance! *shocks*

Anyway it's a pretty good book which might be more than useful to me - The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. Thanks Billy. It's my coolest present ever! =)

Well, of course I have a list of my choices of the coolest birthday presents in the world:
  • A digital SLR camera. Probably a Nikon D80 would make me die of happiness. Oh well, since I won't be died of happiness, so it's not going to be happened anyway. Duh.
  • A stack of cash. Perhaps 1K will do me good. I will spend it wisely on buying myself some new clothes and jeans and shoes and make up stuff. [It's impossible to be happened, too. First, I have no jobs. Second, I wouldn't ask that much of money of my parents.] =.=
  • A Deuter Aircontact 45+10 *dreams*
and the list goes on and on...

So, instead of hoping for some unrealistic presents, I decided to hope for something else which is more down-to-earth.

I hope my whole family will be living happily ever after. :)


Current listening: Guns N' Roses - Estranged, November Rain, Knockin' on Heaven's Door.

I've been eyeing a DSLR camera for a very long time but alas, I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon. It's too pokkailiciously expensive. Even though I have a steady income, spending so much on one camera requires a lot of thorough consideration.

Btw isn't that MMU, aha :).

Emily Lin said...

Cotton candy: Yea.. we do. :P Well, about the series of the unfortunate events - I did lost my temper, nuff' said. ;))

Narrowband: DSLR is definitely worth the price - I know it's darn expensive, but you really should get one. But I think it's not necessary for you now - you've got a Panasonic with a pretty good spec, right? :P

And yea, It's MMU. ;))

Emma said...

Oh, you are so lucky to have a gorgeous new digital camera. I only WISH I did.

inspired said...

new camera ? ;o]

Peter said...

I also wondered what you intended to do with this backpack, but you somehow gave the answer... But still I wonder. It looks BIG! To carry all your birthday presents?

Emily Lin said...

Emma & Inspired: No.. I didn't get a new camera. It's actually in my Wish List. Hmm..It's my fault of not writing it out clearly. =)

Peter: Well, I would be glad IF I had so many presents which taken up all the space of the backpack. ;P
