Ga-ga Over Sony

Lately, I'm into the habit of spoiling myself silly. I am not really a shopaholic or a big spender but I just feel like giving myself some well-deserved treat from time to time. I mean what's the use of working my ass off when I can't even splurge a little on me?

It all started when I accompanied some friends into the Sony store in KLCC one fine night. It was there that I first laid eyes on the sexy Sony Cybershot DSC-T7. To say it was love at first sight would be an understatement. I made numerous trips back to the shop and also other camera shops to set loving gazes at my baby. I even considered T9 as it was the latest addition to the family. Choices, choices, choices. I hate choices sometimes.

I finally settled for the T5 which has the exact same features as the T7. Actually, I find that the T5 is even better than the T7 as it has internal memory which the gorgeous and more expensive T7 doesn't. The T5 is just a teeny-weeny itsy-bitsy bulkier than the T7 but I can look past that. The still slim and slender T5 still slips into my Levi's pockets just fine. No hassles when traveling at all. Love it to death!

I've been trigger-happy with the T5 ever since I got it and now I can't wait to court yet another one of my latest crush. It's the Sony Ericcson P990i smart phone. It's not even February 14 yet and love is already in the air. I hope my T5 won't be jealous of the P990i when it comes as I know I will be spending a lot, and I do mean a LOT of time with the P990i for a while.

Everything I've read about the P990i so far only makes me fall harder for it. It has touch screen, QWERTY keyboard, polyphonic ringtones, MP3, FM radio, Instant Messaging, Bluetooth, 3G, Infrared, USB port, WiFi, WAP, Opera browser, Word and Excel editor, PDF viewer, 2.0 Megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom and a host of other mind boggling features. Phew, I'm out of breath just typing them. How's a girl to resist?

Man, I feel like a bloke to go crazy over all these gadgets. Sony is just killing me with all these techno-babes! Pleaaasseeee stop!

Clubbing anyone?

Whoa, it has been a few slamming, wicked weeks into the New Year and I hadn't found time to blog at all. Seems like inspirations come to me easier when people were pissing me off right, left and center. However, idiots seemed to have steered clear off my path for the past few weeks now. Please turn around and walk the other way from now on too. Thank you.

Thai Club & Bistro, KL

I'm just kicking my heels back now and trying to enjoy life to the fullest while it's still moron-free. Seems like my luck has turned around from last year. Been back into the clubbing scene since Christmas and I must say I am really amused with some of the going-ons in our local clubs. Thai Club now plays funny Ah Beng type of songs which totally sucks and Liquid is like a ghost town on a Friday night. What gives?

Zouk, yea the building that kinda resembles a giant molar, was packed last weekend for the Guiness Black Party and the people turn out in droves. 99.9% were dressed in black too! The conformity impressed me. It was like the gathering of some covert black-skimpy-outfit cult. Guiness must be really pleased.

The dance floor didn't get crowded in the Main Room till almost 11pm and I had to keep avoiding this girl who was flinging her arms around wildly like a possessed demon. Maybe it is a cult after all and this is their ritual dance to summon the rain or something.

The only 2 people I saw who stood out like sore thumbs in the crowd were these 2 girls who were dressed not in black but in bright-colored T-shirts, Bermuda shorts and slippers! I thought they were lost!! Without any make-up on too!!! Brave souls they are. Too bad I forgot to bring my Sony T5 to record down this historic moment.

Alas, I got bored with the Main Room, Velvet Underground AND The Loft. Guess I'm getting too sober for clubbing.
