The Old And The New....

Aaron left his laptop behind for yours truly here to utilize, since the day he did his internship in July. Well, I am of course, ecstatic about it, at least no more "fighting" and hassling with my Girlie over the computer. So now each of us have a laptop and a desktop to use whenever we want, no more negotiating over time factor too!

So normally I like to sit back in my own room, the laptop on my bed and a chair to sit on beside it. But lately I have been suffering backpain.... was it due to this chair??? LOL... It looks disastrous, right? Hey, don't ask me to throw it away, this one sentimental value chor.... it has been with me since I was born leh... and how many years was that... secret, secret... :)


an antique already..
all I did was to put some cushions on and behind it..
sayang to throw it away
Hospital fees will cost RM30...
But I will do it one day...


hey, see what I bought 2 days ago...
cute or not?
Now my bumps will be more comfortable
While the old one goes to "hospital",
this new one will do for now...
Cost me RM47!!
