Oh Joy Oh Joy!

Sorry! That was just me clicking away amateurishly at my camera *embedded* in my new Nokia N73 while we were at the Botanical Gardens last Saturday morning. Truth be known, my fingers did a whole lot more exercising than my entire body did, that’s for sure! No complaints about the camera, err…oops, the phone except that in the one week that I have had it, I encountered error messages on several occasions telling me that my 1GB memory card was not detectable. To resolve this, I have had to either restart the phone or reinsert the memory card. So later that Saturday afternoon, we scooted over to Gurney’s to report this to the guy who sold us the phone. Actually, my hubby also wanted to go and get his phone loaded with games, as he discovered that his new phone was game-less…tee-hee! Anyways, the guy kinda reconfigured my memory card and told me that it should be working all right now; so far, so good, no problems..I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

Oh yeah, we stopped by The Body Shop too, as it was the second day of their annual sale. A couple of days before the sale started, I had received an SMS and 2 voice mails informing me of the sale. And it looked like everyone in the whole of Penang got it too, because the whole shop was jam-packed so bad, it was so hard to move. It figured because The Body Shop members also get an additional 10% off during the first three days of the sale. And being a member, I could NOT resist checking out what I could grab. And look what temptation did to me…

So all in all, a weekend well-spent. We managed to contact the air-cond man to come and fix the air-conditioner in our room too. So it’s no longer leaking now. Yippee!! What a splendid 2-days I had. And what a contrast it is to today. SIGH… Again, I’m so sad it has to be Monday today. Boo hoo….

  1. Nice piccies from a camera phone 🙂 I haven’t figured out how to upload images from my phone to my computer yet heh… And it looks like everyone is doing damage at The Body Shop sale except me! I still have stuff from their last sale unopened LOL

    The Giddy Tiger says: If there is no USB cable, and you wann load to your lappie, I think you can use the infra red no? Stuff from Body Shop? Wanna pass them over to me to open? *wink*

    NIce photos of the flowers. Sadly I can’t find a way to upload photos from my phone to my computer, it just doesn’t work with mac!

    I try to avoid going to sales, past experiences tell me I will always end up with things I don’t need. Nowadays if I go, I’ll zoom right to the item I want, zoom to the cashier, and zoom out of there asap. Haha.

    The Giddy Tiger says: Hmmm… my friend has some complaints about Mac limitations too, despite its gorgeous exterior! I think you have a good habit of dealing with sales and shopping in general – if only I can have the strength to do the same! 😛

    Soon your phone will be able to dance and cook at the same time too! Nifty! I used to be a Bodyshop junkie…

    MOndays are really bad, but this Monday can’t be all that bad as it means HEROES albeit the last episode in the current series. Next Monday’s gonna be bad!!!

    The Giddy Tiger says: OOoh, a dancing and cooking phone would be so cool. Last episode of HEROES? So fast? Aiyoooo…

    The Giddy Tiger says: Yup, I’m a hopeless romantic, oh yes I am.

  8. jazzmint says:

  9. may says:

    I go crazy at Body Shop sales too. love what I could get for a wee bit of fee.

    The Giddy Tiger says: I’ll be GLAD when weekend comes 🙂 One down and 4 to go now… Good to know I have blogger friends who are Body Shop crazy too!

  10. shooi says:

    Ooo lala….Sensual Ylang Ylang *wink*wink*

    The Giddy Tiger says: Everyone is extra observant when they see the word “sensual” huh? 😛

  11. Who is the amateur? Those photos are lovely. You followed one of the main rules of photography. You filled the frame. And the light painted all the blooms quite nicely. *high 5*

    Sounds like a great weekend. Why do so many weekends have to end with a Monday?

    The Giddy Tiger says: Gee thanks SA. I had no idea I was unconsciously applying the photography rules. Hah! Hope you had a good weekend too!

  12. Angeleyes says:

    Wow! Did not know that Botanical garden has those pretty blooms!

    Body Shop have sale ah??? I think I’m the only one who did not receive the SMS…. 😆

    The Giddy Tiger says: Yeah they do. It’s really an eye-opener when you have a camera to capture photos you would have otherwise dismissed.

    hi! i saw that u bought Body Shop’s Shampoo, is it good? i’ve never tried it, but just wondering if i should give it a try !!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Hi Min! Yeah, I’ve already tried a few types of TBS shampoo, but the one I got most recently is the Olive Oil one (for extra shine) – I love the smell it exudes and it really makes my hair soft and silky. So yes, go give it a try. You’ll like it, I’m sure!
