September Baby

Before I continue on my US posts, allow me to place my birthday entry first.

5th September arrived and I am another year older. I don’t think the thought of adding another candle to the cake matters as much as the nagging consternation that I have nothing to show for the years I have lived. But since the anniversary of my birth is a cause for celebrating my existence, I shall not dwell on such unpleasantries for more than 5 minutes.

Took a day off, compliments of the company and slept like a log till 11am. It’s been so long since I last slept in and my, what an absolute luxury. I totally missed my spa appointment and had to call them up to reschedule. Thankfully, they were able to acquiesce to my request. Took a cab down to the city, indulged in a massage and a milk hydrobath (not tainted milk I hope…) and headed to Funan IT Mall to buy a birthday present on behalf of my fiancé.

Does the previous statement sound strange? Haha. Yes indeed. The man himself was unable to return to Singapore to spend the special occasion with me. However, he sends his love, well wishes and a ‘no budget, buy whatever you fancy’ decree. Believe me, I was extremely tempted to stroll into a Chanel boutique to procure that long coveted 2.55. Alas, my conscience got the better of me and I decided the bag must be a gift bought willingly and personally by my beloved .

So, we agree that I should finally take the initiative to buy an MP3 player. It is an item that's perpetually on my ‘To Buy List’ but it's something I am not motivated to take the trouble to acquire. On this opportune day, I headed to Funan with my heart set on buying Creative’s Zen X-Fi (32G).

It is a micro power gadget complete with an FM Radio. What’s not to like about it? Alas, only the headquarters in Jurong East carries the 32G version. I walked around aimlessly and entered an authorized iPod seller shop. My allegiance to Creative was gone with the wind the moment I set my fingers on the iPod Touch and the rest they say, was history.
So this is the story of my quest for an MP3 player. I am officially a victim of subliminal marketing messages from Evil Apple.


P/S: Thanks bunny for your generosity. You're the best!

Hey girl!! Congrats on getting your new ipod! i don't own anything from the apple brand as yet... maybe when iTunes does launch locally, i will! :D

btw, i find it realllllly hard to decide what to get when the hubs go, "hey, pick anything you like, i'll pay!" feel bad burning a hole in his wallet (like how i burn mine, lol!), so usually i'll settle for just a meal or something :S

and soooo sorry!! i still haven't send your birthday package out! i found the post office already, it's about half an hour's walk away from my place so yay for that! :D the only thing's holding me back is the fact that i can't find a friggin BIRTHDAY CARD here! no kidding, not even one crappy one!! i'm beyond frustrated!!! gah! i can't wait to go home :(

btw, when are you getting hitched? :D

That 2.55 would have looked so good on you. ;) You totally can pull off Chanel! Your fiance is sooo sweet.
