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 HANDPHONE DROP INTO THE WATER TUB lo!!!”
I’ve already rescue N6060 babe while doing all the yelling and talking. The light (display screen) has gone from her but she’s still breathing (the clam is still glowing red; see picture below). Quickly I power off N6060 babe. In the background sis is yelling “Turn off your handphone quickly and shake off the water.”
I expect a heavy lecture from my dad and mom. But all they say is “So not careful wan. Cham la. Now must buy a new one.” Aikk! Funny wor. Why they behave like that? I guess they know me well. Me very careless especially with handphone.
Honestly speaking, I love N6060 babe tremendously. I professed my love to her 2 years ago. Strangely I didn’t feel bad at all this time after a history of wrecking a total of 6 handphones! I only think about getting a new handphone when I’m tuck in my bed that night. But I say to myself we’ll see how tomorrow.
Next day… I’m ready to mourn the passing of N6060 babe. My N3210 (first handphone) that had fallen into a toilet hole didn’t survive at all. So I don’t expect N6060 babe will either.
Resting on a tissue paper is N6060 babe bare naked resulting from the autopsy I performed the day before. SIM card, battery and battery cover were removed from her body. Let’s hope the shaking action I carried out will help to ease her revival.
Carefully I reattach back all her body parts and press the ‘power on’ button. I expect silence yet N6060 babe churn back to life with the famous Nokia start-up tune. “Wuahahahahaha ohmygod it’s incredible!!! She’s alive!” 💃💃💃 “Look ma, look pa… whoohoooooo”
1. My handphone can hold breath underwater… 💃 hahaha AND
2. Nokia rocks! Particularly this model Nokia 6060
And so this ends my miracle handphone story.
p/s: Everything (yes I mean everything) works perfectly. Not even a tiny scar or ‘vomit water out’ scenario.
