Yet again...

..the diamond kitty has been dug into and emptied. Yet again!

Yet again it has been wiped off completely clean to buy those electronics that I just cannot desist. Did you notice the 's' at the end of electronic in the previous sentence? Yup, its not one but 2 things that has been bought. But yay!! I'm so happy and excited about it!! I just can't wait to hold it in my hands and just feel it. Ok..ok..you can stop those dirty thoughts right there!!

A cousin of mine is coming in early May from the U S of A and I asked him to carry this lovely camera as well as an excellent wireless router for me. Thanks a ton Pankaj!! I'm counting days to his arrival so eagerly that I can't just describe! Yeah I'm being a meanie sister and waiting more for my camera than for him. But at least I'm truthful about it so do give me those brownie points!

I was swaying between this Canon SX100 model and Canon SD1100IS model. They both looked pretty good to me. But each had few pluses and few minuses. SX100 was a bigger, heavier camera whereas the SD1100 was much smaller and compact. But then liked the 10x optical zoom in SX100 as compared to the 3x in SD1100. I liked the fact that there are manual controls in SX100 which I can play around but I liked the pre-loaded settings in SD1100. But in the end I gave away to this black beauty i.e SX100. Isn't it so sexy?

While he was at it, I asked him order a nice wireless router for me. Since he is pro at networking and et al, I left him to choose the model. And from what he says, its one awesome model. So no more tripping over netwrk cable, no more entangling of wires and I can just sit about anywhere and work on my lappy!

By the way, did I tell you I got a lappy in Jan this year? I did not?? How did I miss this big news?? Anyhow, its a Gateway model. Don't remember the model number but it has super duper specs. It came loaded with Vista. And I just love it. It was a gift from Hubby! So he kind of made up for all these years when he didn't get me anything for birthday or anniversary. Thanks chhona!

  8. I just bumped into your blog (you don't know me and vice versa) and noticed 'Chhona'. That's my name too at home and from what I remember there was a poem that I read when I was very small, in which there was a line which went like "khel rahe the chhone" with chhona referring to little dear(the animal). It's just that I was very small then and I only have a vague memory of this poem. So I was just wondering if you came across it in a poem too? :) (Ah, and why do you think it means a loved one?)

  9. @lifetotaller: Thanks for dropping by at my blog.

    I don't remember reading this word in print any time. I've heard this word being used by our Ma for us umpteen umber of times when we were kids and I really liked it. Its a word which oozes with love and affection and that's why I sue it. Its actually a derivation from the word "sona' which is again used to call a loved one.
