Want to take it easy today. Posting something light. Here goes....
Lost in the world for half a day yesterday. Battery of my phone kong-out as I left my charger in the office. Like most people, I'm a slave of my phone. Without it, I'm lost. All sorts of things could happened - missed appointments, lost clients, angry people who tried to contact me, etc.
Pre-handphone life back then was more simple. And I miss it.
Can't remember exactly the last time, I used a public phone. It was probably in London several years ago when I just want to try using the one in that traditional red box for fun.
My first handphone was a second hand Ericsson. I was the last among my friends who don't have a handphone. Someone actually bought it for me because of Anwar Ibrahim. It was at the height of Reformasi. Exciting time and I needed to be connected. I used to carry a spare battery as I was always on the road and the phone battery didn't last too long. The phone lasted for about two years.
Second handphone was a Nokia. The first model without an antenna. It was the only time I actually bought a phone due to its changgih technology. Top of the line at that time. Can go silent mode, vibrate and change the ring tone some more. My most expensive phone at over RM1k.
Next was a Nokia butterfly. My favorite phone ever. Bought it when it was already outdated. Still, I love it very much for a reason I rather keep to myself...it was a happy time. I use it for a very long time until one fine day I got so angry with the person at the other end of the line that I smashed it to the wall beyond repair.
Now, I'm using a Blackberry. Curve - the cheapest one bought with the data package. It's actually more for show than anything else. The internet connection is very slow, that maybe one day I will lose my patient and smash it to the wall too. Well, everyone else have a smartphone these days, at least I have one too. That's what I thought when I bought it. It's perhaps the phone I bought for the most stupid reason of all.
Eh, it's already azan subuh...I better do the necessary and get ready for the day. Crazy me, writing about handphones pagi pagi buta. Never mind lah...I will put some pictures later to make it nicer to read. This old netbook can't do that.
Ok, have a good Friday :-)
Blackberry is hopeless when it comes to browsing the internet. I'm keeping it because most of my friends are still on Blackberry messenger. Other than that, it is as useless as other phones. I must have thrown this goddamn thing so many times, but it still works after piecing them back together.ReplyDelete
Yup, keeping my berry for the same reason. Once I am done with this one, I think I will get a normal phone again.Delete
you should have used Nokia 3310. baling banyak kali pun okay je hahahaha. the robust one ever.ReplyDelete
That one too old and too ugly la zak zak. The older batu asah Nokia which was my first Nokia was better.Delete
