Introducing Lord Fontaine d'Allen

05 February 2010

I guess when you really want something, you will do what it takes to get it.

So, even when temptations (to go shopping for other stuff instead) surrounded me, I am happy to say that I resisted them and finally got myself a new digital camera! That's one item crossed off my wish list!

Casio Exilim EX-Z29

my stuffed animals Kriket and Archuleta look on at the contents of the package :D

Dane, Watcher and Mich accompanied me to SM Fairview to get this new baby. We went straight to the mall after work and went home after dark. Fun! :)

Believe me, saving up for a big ticket item is very, very difficult for me as I am the type of person who spends endlessly as long as there is cash to burn. Yes, I know that's bad, but I cannot seem to help myself. The only way I can buy something that needs saving up for is if I receive a windfall. Technically, I did not save up for my new gadget; he is a product of all those double pays during the Holidays. :) But kudos to me for not spending them on other stuff I wanted to get like a new pair of shoes, dresses and an eyeshadow palette. :)

I really wanted to watch Kris Allen's concert with Jabbawockeez and Boyce Avenue tomorrow but no one is available to go with me and the venue is too far. Dane will not be able to accompany me because he will have an admission exam for his MBA the next day. So yeah, the money that I was supposed to use for the concert went to my camera funds.

Because of that, I (with my compulsion to name everything in sight) am naming my new baby after Kris Allen :D

Meet Lord Fontaine d'Allen
I love how Archuleta the octopus looks so smug and cute in the background :D

Yes, I wanted to follow the pattern of my netbook Lady Fabrize, thus the name. I really wanted one in white or pink, but the only choices are black and silver. I preferred the black one over the silver model since it looks more sleek and "formal". :)

I like!

And today I went to SM North EDSA to get a pouch for him.

black, white and gray geometric patterns

I only paid P99.75 for this because I got P100.00 rebate :D

I am happy I finally got a new camera. I am expecting my blog will have better photos; no more squinting at images by my 2mp phone Alister! :D

I hope you're all having a great weekend! I will be on VL on Sunday so I will be off to my hometown tomorrow to see my friends! :)

  3. believe me i'm worse than you when it comes to saving for bigger purchases. I suck at that cuz i'm probably the most impulsive buyer you'll ever known. Yay for the new camera... U'll take lots of photos, yes?

  4. Yay! I'm so happy for you. I have a crappy cam, haha.. So I don't post a lot of my own pics. :)

  5. Aww yay! Congrats on the purchase! I saved up and bought my digital camera (a Nikon) about two years ago and I'm still so proud of myself that I managed to do it. Can't wait to see all the great pictures you'll snap with it!

    Hope you have an amazing weekend (even though I know your days off are later hehe)!

  6. love your new gadget! Hehe I really like Kris Allen's "Live like we're dying" it's soooo catchy!

  7. That is a great discount on the purchase! That must have made it even more fun to buy the camera.

    I forgot to mention I really like the new profile picture--very pretty!

  8. @ Thiamere: Thanks Thiamere! Saving up is REALLY hard, but it is surely worth it! :)
