Another New Toy :p

For the past few days, I have been er, sort of buried "Six Feet Under" (Season 3). Plus the fact that I have got a new toy!

It's a Nintendo DS !!!!!!! Yayaya I know, it's not really new NEW but I could not afford it before this. Come to think of it, I don't think I can afford it now. But Andrew gave me some money for my birthday and told me to get myself something with it. All I had to do was to top it up.

Alison came along with me to 'check out the prices'. Well, I had to say, check out the price, right? Don't want to outright say, I AM GOING TO BUY A DS. It sounds so, er, impulsive. So there we are, at the shop, looking at all the different DS in so many different colours. There was even one with a sickly pinky pink Barbie doll colour. Then there was another in a milky white, which I very nearly bought because it looked so cool but not practical because before too long, it's just going to look scruffy. But the very 1st I asked to see was the red unit. Boy! The red on the box looked pretty good but when I actually saw the console, I have to say I have never seen such a 'jang' red colour. Alison, "Mummy, your eyes are going to hurt when you play on this".

I totally agreed with her. Ali tried to stop me from buying a DS that day. "Mummy, don't waste your money. Wait till Christmas. Price may go down some more. Or Papa might give you more Christmas money to top it up"...........blah blah blah. (At that point, the mother/daughter roles were reversed)

So, I intelligently asked her to go to the bookshop to browse. "Nope, If I leave you, you'll end up buying it." My daughter policing me.........mmmmmmmmmm.

" I am going to get it anyway, so go ahead to Popular Book Shop and I'll catch up with you" With a huff and a sigh, she went off and I purchased the graphite colour unit. (Graphite meaning, dark grey lah, or if you prefer, light black. As if black can be light??)

I fiddled around with it for a bit the over the past few days but mostly, I am trying to finish a game I spent weeks on the SP, Harvest Moon. Something went seriously wrong and all data got deleted. It took me ages to get to the 'nearly finish' stage. I am dying to see what happens. So, hence, I have been busy trying to work it up to that level again *sigh* I wonder if other gamers have such mishaps. I'll bet my gamer hero, Ju, don't.

So once I get off the computer, I am going back to Mineral Town, try to get the doctor to marry me this time. The other fella has some serious emotional problems. Get my farm to flourish. Have a baby. Get a vacation house. I know, I know. I am so sad..................should get out more.

Oh yeah, I HAVE to mention about my birthday right? The previous posting was just 2 hours into it. What about the rest of the day? Well, it was just like any other Thursday. Routine; Ani, my cleaning lady came, did the house. The break of the routine would probably be the trip downtown to get the DS and also a barrage of birthday messages and  phone calls. Thanks guys. And Ching Li came by about noon to give me a hugest bunch of flowers from April and her. So beautiful. Thanks too. I have observed that I get flowers more often from females and males.Mmmmmmmmmm

But most of the time I was buried deep under (6 feet actually) and, sorry I was not home I was in Nintendo land.
