Another new old phone; “Klang Blogger’s Gathering”; Back in China

My phone is a cute little 6510 from the turn of the century. It was graciously given by May. Last week, Jean gave me her 6510 as well, and I managed to pinch the champagne-coloured cover from Joo Lee (whose 6510 is no longer functional).

So now I have two Nokia 6510s. One for my China sim card, and the other can run my Malaysian sim card. Not bad wat, you can send texts to me at local rates and I’ll respond to you without needing to roaming rates.

I still hold on to my record of never having purchased a phone off the shelf; the first was May’s old phone, the second came with my phone line package, my third and fourth are these 6510s. Nothing to be proud of, some insist.

The little gathering that later became known as the Klang Blogger’s Gathering was a blast. We met up on Saturday night for ‘supper’ at TGIF Subang Parade, and proceeded to become the noisiest group and the last to leave.

It was nothing short of fantastic.

I’m now in China; the trip was unpleasant.

Monday 9.30 pm: Leave the house for KLIA
Tuesday 12.30 am: Flight scheduled to depart
1.00 am: Flight delayed to 1.00 am
7.30 am: Arrived at Beijing Airport
10.00 am: Depart for Tianjin via Beijing Airport-Tianjin shuttle bus
12.30pm: Arrived in Tianjin bus terminal. Took a taxi to TEDA Economic and Technological Development Area.
1.30pm: Arrived home half dead from lack of sleep, minor claustrophobia (China Air provides no leg room), nausea, bad airline food and dehydration.

see, I knew I couldn't be the only one!
Till a couple of months back, I too held a record of never purchasing a phone, new or otherwise.
Sadly I lost my mom's hand-me-down in Lumut and had to get one (I'm so anti-technology that I insisted on a second-hand one) for myself since it wasn't a season that people were feeling generous.
