The day we're about to leave for PI, I decided I'd buy Nikon J1 for Anna. Huge mistake. Of course, we wanted the white version. Which apparently and oddly sold out in Best Buys and Targets in our area.


With a $600++ price tag, you'd think most people would rather go for an SLR since it is one of those hybrids that Sony came out with the NEX. I did try one on display stand, and I wasn't impressed since I'm already all too familiar with it's bigger half brother SLR, it did not appeal to me.

So I told Anna that her only hope would be to find one at our stop over in Incheon. I made it clear that if the SRP goes above $50, I wont buy her one.


We then arrived at Incheon 5AM and naturally most of the major shops don't open till 7AM. Our stop was only three hours which translates to an hour window to shop. Soon as the stores opened, we threaded the airport-mall-in-one from gate to gate. Luckily, we found a way better deal not offered anywhere in US -- read freebies: tripod, strap, nikon hot-stamped leather case, and extra wide lens! And yes, they have white in stock! Needless to say, i made the wife happy with her new toy.

We're goin home

All packed and ready to go.

Or make that "Semi-packed" and "ready to-go" with a question mark.

Still out shopping and haven't packed a single thing!  Wish me luck

We're still out buying last minute stuff up to the wee hours. And we still had to go out and buy more stuff on our way to the airport.

Party 2011 - ICU style

Sharp ICU's Annual Christmas Party was again, a success. I was the "official" photographer and the moment we stepped in the venue, we were surprised by the sheer number of people present.


There maybe about 70% of the regular staff that were there and the rest are our co-workers in the hospital.

Everyone had a great time, especially the kids. Food was overflowing and the music was great.

RIP Pootee

And Pootee has her days numbered.

Anna's phone is showing signs of old age. Considering its just two years old. Technology may be advanced but quality sometimes can't keep up from all the stuff that's coming out of the market.


Or maybe it's just a scheme to let us buy new gadgets, as Anna would put it. Only thing here in the US is soon as you step out the door after buying, it's worth half of the original value.

You may put it up for sale either on EBay or Craigslist. But don't expect it to rake more dough than it's original worth of course, not even close.

Nevertheless, we'd still end up buying that new Iphone. So Apple, when will you stop thinking of these great things to rest our wallets?
