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.

  5. My desktop died on me in year 2019 after using it for 5 years. Currently I am using a Samsung Tablet. But somehow I prefer to use a Desktop.

  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 ;-)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
