The End Of My Lumix… Or Maybe Not

17 days shy of 3 years… my Lumix digital camera FX-9 would have been 3 years old.

I’ve carelessly dropped my Panasonic Lumix once on the street. I’ve also dropped it during my Mount Kinabalu climb. But the most unforgiving drop happened yesterday… just a small drop from my dining table to the floor… and everything went kaput! The retractable lens barrel only close half-way as the inside filament is teared (I don’t know what it’s called. But it’s that paper thin thing that protects the lens).

I still can repair this camera. But is it worth it?

My Miracle Handphone Story

I was at home whole day on Wesak Day. Funny thing is my handphone is in my pocket the whole time. Reminded myself a couple of times to remove it but lupa. Then bathing time comes… I only realize N6060 babe is still in my pocket while undoing my pants. Carefully I place her on the rail amongst my clothes.

I refuse to ask someone to come and get my handphone knowing I will get a ‘Why you bring your handphone to the bathroom?’ lecture.

Swish swash swooch… goes my shower. Of course I still remember my handphone after the holy wash. ‘CAREFUL’ is in my head all the time. Unfortunately I lose to CAREFUL. The moment I remove my pants from the railing, I can hear ‘PLOOOP’ and a loud shriek “ARGGGGHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOoooo!” and one second later a large hurricane of panic voices outside my bathroom door. “What happen?”… “Why are you shouting?

My New Handphone

Continuation from yesterday’s post on Handphones Down Memory Lane. A reminiscence of my ALL 6 previous handphones.

Next, I decided to fork out some $$ to get another handphone so I bought a new handphone (7th handphone since… umphhh 2000) last weekend. No no nothing to cheer about. It is just a low end model with no camera, no bluetooth, no 3G, no USB… no whatsoever ‘changgih’ techno. I figured I wanted a simple handphone because all I ever use for is calling and receiving calls and messages plus I already have a digi cam ma. But for my next handphone I plan to own a 3.5G or 4G handphone with those state of the art technology. Which means it will take quite a while la since 3.5G and above are not available here yet.

Handphones Down Memory Lane

I’m listing down the 6 handphones that I have used so far and the tragedy that struck them that bring them to their demised. Ouchh!

My first handphone was NOKIA 3210. This model was announced in 1999. I bought mine in 2000 with a RM1k price tag. It comes with a nice design but it was damn heavy. This handphone went down the toilet hole during one of my shopping trip visit to the loo. I used a plastic bag to fish out the handphone. Ewwwww… can’t power up the handphone after that even after I dried it. With all those acid/alkali stuff in that hole, I doubt it can be operative again. My fault for wearing a large pocket trousers. From then on, my dad keep reminding (babbling) me to always put my handphone in a save place before I do my business.
