New Gadgets!

WOOOOOOOOO!!! I has new gadgets!

After much contemplation (since Monday only. lol), I decided to go impulse buying through our loan association privilege. I have always wanted to buy a new camera to upgrade my current digicam which I got for free 4 years ago. hehe.

my 4-year old polaroid digicam

I won that camera, a pink 9 MP Polaroid, on a raffle draw during the awarding ceremony of our company’s sportfest event. It was a lucky draw to think that there were thousands of entries. I was not really expecting it and I was very surprised when I heard my name over the megaphone. I even saw my boss stand-up and was trying to find me in the crowd. LOL. I guess God answered my prayers that day because I really wanted to buy a camera for myself – a DSLR actually. He may not have given me exactly what I had wished for but it did serve its purpose for the past 4 years its been with me. And up to now, it’s still in good working condition despite its battered look.

I had been meaning to upgrade my camera into something high-tech. I was eyeing the Nikon D5000 and I told myself I’ll buy one after my other catalogue loans are done. Apparently, I got tempted. Ha ha.

Since summer is nearing and the chance of going out of town to beaches and/or go swimming is high, I thought of getting a waterproof camera. I realized this when I went to Hundred Islands and I kinda felt sad that I didn’t get a lot of pictures during the trip.

And so I bought the Olympus Stylus TG-630 in red (it’s my favorite color ♥).

“A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures up to 5m underwater. A durable body with innovative shock-absorbing technology protects it from drops of up to 1.5m. Perfect for skiing, snowboarding, sledding and other winter fun, this camera is winterized to perform at below-freezing temperatures. And it is even dustproof, meaning you can spend worry-free days taking pictures at the beach with it, for instance.”

I was surprised also because it came with a free android tablet as a promo. How awesome is that? =(~.^)=

freebie! android tablet.

So i think I got a great deal – I now have a better camera that is waterproof, meaning, I can bring it to our upcoming swimming parteh, + an adroid tablet I can bring anywhere, much more convenient than bringing my laptop and lastly it’s 1-year to pay, auto salary deduction. hehehe. Thank You S.M.! Thank You SLA!

As for my old digicam, It’s time to award it to someone else. I’ll give it to my brother so they can use it – to at least, be able to take snapshots for memories. =^.^=

Of course, I tested my new cam at the office as soon as I got it. hihi.
