Christmas has been fairly busy due to my sister's plans of spending it together at
Run up to xday: My brother had the idea of giving our dear mother a second hand laptop for xmas and asked me to scour around for one that would only cost 10k. Aidz previously mentioned to me the price of the eeepc thru tipidpc. So I thought... I can just split the cost and get our mom a kickass gift. So I called up Sir Kojak to confirm if they had stock and told him that I'll pass by to get one that same day.
Star Mall Mandaluyong: PC Home was the shop he told me to get it from so I went there. Unfortunately, someone swooped down a bit earlier and bought 2 units to give as a gift too. Had to wait a bit but the staff updated me often as they brought it from Megamall to the branch I was in. So a few days from xday, I was in possession of a kickass Mom Laptop. I got to play with it a bit, but had a bit of trouble because the eeepc seemed to hate my cheap surecom broadband router. Looks like its time to upgrade to a Linksys wireless router :P (Update: Installing Windows XP kinda solved the router issue)
The food was ok, I especially liked the dimsum and siomai. So come 12mn, we presented our gift. She liked it, was able to check her email, because the place had wifi. Like our dad, we love making our Mom the coolest one around :D Pics HereAfter Noche Buena, we went back to the condo and drank vodka-sprite to chase awfully bitter red wine. Christmas day itself was slow, sleepy and ho-hum. Merry Christmas everyone.
