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 ;-)

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
