Goodbye And Hello

Wuan was here for the weekend and we went shopping for a new camera. I traded-in the Canon EOS 500 with had an oily shutter together with the EF35-80mm and EF80-200mm zoom lenses which had uninvited colonies of fungus residing in them.

Wuan kept asking me if I would be shedding tears as I parted with them. At that moment, I was too ecstatic with the Nikon Coolpix 3100 that was beckoning me. As I am blogging this, I am feeling pangs of sentimentality. I have had the camera since October 1995. It is a pity that cameras do not keep well in tropical climates unless they are properly stored. I am still learning the functions of the Coolpix 3100 and will post my comments as soon I figure out how it works.

After 10 years listening to sounds from a pair of first generation Creative speakers that came with the Sound Blaster 16, I have finally upgraded to an Altec Lansing ATP 3 2.1 speakers. Never mind I am still using the Sound Blaster 16; this nifty little package pumps out sound with fidelity much better than my Pioneer hi-fi. Wuan bought it in Kuala Lumpur and lugged it all the way to Penang. What a gal!

Now, please excuse me while I go play with my new toys, and scrimp for the rest of the year for these moments of silly indulgence.
