lost fone..

Thursday, April 30, 2009

I lost my beloved fone right before holy week. For some unknown reason, it just left my back. I am not quite certain if I really lost it or someone snatched it in the pocket of my bag. I have learned to love that fone of mine. It is a Toshiba white 803T, its the same one that dao ming su had in Hana Yori Dango, mine was just white. My aunt from Japan gave it to me 2 years ago. It was not the best fone, but I liked it coz it was all that I needed, a nice 2MP camera, Mp3 player with expandable 512MB miniSD card plus I could call and text with it. I really missed that fone, it somehow has a sentimental value for me, because it was the first fone that I had as a gift and it was brand new. throughout the years, my fone has always been the second hand kind because my parents could not affod the fone I wanted, thus bought me the cheaper one second hand. I am not complaining about it, and it was just fine. Gosh, now that I have part time work, maybe I could reward myself with a kick ass fone, not necessarily the latest model, but the nicest perhaps.

Gosh, I've been eyeing to have an Iphone. The first news that it was available here, my boyfriend couldn't get enough of it and wanted it so badly, but it costs like 30k. It was not that cheap.
I, being the practical kind, kind of told my boyfriend that it will be a waste of money to buy an Iphone when there are also nicer fones with much lower price. But when we went to Digital Walker in Greenhills, I get to touch a real working Iphone (because it was on display). I really fell in love with it. It has a sleek design with the nicest features i have seen. (Since I got used to using my boyfriend's macbook) Other latest and newest fone brands like Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and others pale in comparison. But then even though I wanted an Iphone also, I believe I couldn't afford one for now. Maybe I'll let the price go down to like 20k then maybe i'll decide to buy one.

For now, I've been using an old phone that I found at home. It is a basic fone used for calls and texting only.
