Frankly speaking, I hate changing mobile phone too often as my current one was merely bought in December 2009. However, this Sony Ericsson G900 gave me a lot of problems as its touch screen was faulty so I had no other choice other than buying a new mobile phone as repairing it would mean I had to fork out RM180 from my pocket!
So, on Friday night, 26 February 2010, I asked my nephew to accompany me to KB Mall together with my two elder daughters. We left for KB at 8 pm and the trip took about one hour as the road was fairly congested due to night shopping and dining out. At first, I went to First Touch Telecommunication to ask the shopkeeper if he could repair my phone. Much to my dismay, the warranty card did not cover the touch screen. I was mad at the shop assistant but I finally gave up as I did not want another chaos take place in the shopping mall.
Then, I went to another phone kiosk to look for a new mobile phone. This time I would not buy a SE unit anymore but instead I planned to get a Nokia model. Enough is enough! I spotted a thin Nokia phone and asked the salesgirl to take it out so I could have a look. It was really love at first sight! My eyes were glued to Nokia E52 and I asked the salesgirl about its price. It’s RM814 including a memory card. To get a GPS software named Garmin installed in my new hand phone, I had to add additional RM50. On top of that, this model also has other special features such as wifi, e-mail application, 3.5G and camera. Well, money can be earned, right? But how about satisfaction? So I grabbed the phone and paid by cash.
On the way back to Machang, I stopped by McDonald outlet in Wakaf Che Yeh. It’s my first being there only to be greeted by my three former students! Yes, a popular teacher like me has ex students wherever I go. After having our supper, we went home and arrived at 11.45 pm. What a long journey! But I was so glad that I only dozed off at 2 am.
