Techie gifts from Singapore
Just an excuse to post a picture I took using the new Canon EOS 1000D Eddie brought back from Singapore yesterday. I'm still trying to figure out this camera, my brain just can't absorb techie stuff. It'll really have to be all trial and error.
I wasn't the only one to get a techie gift from Singapore. The Nokia phone up there is Brian's first mobile phone. It's a basic cheapy model, about $90 or something. It's for him to be contactable after school; there's no fancy functions in there.
Back in Singapore, just 1 week into Primary 1, Brian came back one day asking, "Mummy, when I get to Secondary 1, will you buy me a handphone?"
I was shocked, cos he's not the type of kid (back then) to ask for stuff, and what did he know about Secondary 1? When I asked him where the heck he got that idea, he said his classmate told him that his father promised him a mobile phone when he got to secondary school.
Just a story to show the power of peer influence at such a young age.
