My Faithful Pal, DELL

GIFTING MYSELF... with a new toy, a toy which I spend most of my time playing with it.

I bought myself a new laptop, my first one after living on this earth for so many years.  LOL... When I first started blogging, I used desktop and it was not cheap those days.  I remember getting a desktop in the 1990s, the first one was around RM5K or around that price.  Big monitor and bulky motherboard.  Then my second desktop, I applied for a government loan.  I cannot remember how many desktops I have gotten after that... 

Fast forward to the early 2000s... when my kids went to college, I got them laptops.  At present I am still using my son's laptop which I bought for him when he turned 21.  And till today, 10 years later, the laptop is still usable.  I heard that laptops normally last around 5-6 years and I am grateful that this Dell is still going strong... except for the starting up, it began to make "heartbeat" sounds.  Once the screen is on, the heartbeat sound vanishes.  I guess it is telling me that its time is near..... 

So... I got myself a new one, just in case, the heartbeats become louder and louder.... 

Yes, I am still into DELL.... faithful for its durability.... 

It came yesterday after two weeks of purchase.... 
My new daily toy... fully utilized most of the day... 
Bigger by an inch compared to the old laptop..
Slimmer and lighter overall.... 
Comes with a laptop bag.... 
And for this toy, I am poorer by RM1,800+
Oh, I am still using my current old faithful laptop...
Seniors like me takes time to get used to new gadgets, right?
So how about you?  What type of toy do you use?

  1. Nice gift to yourself. That price is a good price. Now I use a hp worth about rm600 only to do everything including taking photos and putting them up. Couldn't bring myself to buy any hp above rm600, hahahaha. Lolx!

  2. I am still using my son's old desktop which is still going strong and reliable after so many years. Will continue to use this old faithful as long as it can be used. Enjoy your new toy.

  3. DELL is a good brand. It can type and send whatever that MAC does too. Better save the money and go for travels when the borders re-open lah.

    I have over 7-8 lap tops to use now in my wife's centre.

  10. I use Dell laptop too....for many years, but it is my working laptop from the company, meaning it is not mine. My toy would be Samsung S series which I use to take quality pictures and post to Instagram ;-)

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
