Evolution of MY communication tools
i belong to the time of pagers... had my very 1st pager in JC year 1 and it was a purely numeric pager...we would have a code to represent ourselves... my code was 19 and lene's was 95...
since 'messages' could only be numeric, everyone was communicating in number codes;
these were the few common ones;
07734 = hello
11771554 = i miss u
5012124 = sorry
then it was the alpha-numeric pagers
besides the motorola jazz pager, this mtv pager was one of the coolest stuff that most of us had back in JC... i remembered i had mini colourful bells attached to the springy chain and had 2 puffy stickers behind it.
messages were created using the number keys.....
416363316243414281 = goodnight
the challenge of this was that i couldnt 'see' what i had typed... so it was really a case of practice made perfect
then 蔡 mummy ordered 蔡 pappy to get me a phone when i entered uni cos i was always not returning call with the excuse that i was on the bus/train and hence had no access to public phone.... was so upset lo..... i really didnt want to be that contactable cos it would mean that i have no more excuses to go home late... =S
realised i was showered with at least one phone a year while surfing GSMArena to recall what were the phones i had held before... and all sponsored by 蔡 pappy
|sony ericsson W850|
|This was the last phone from 蔡 pappy.... came with a pink pouch....attached with a beaded candy which chunyang made for me.... was super duper upset when the screen went blank one day|
I started buying my own phone and the first one was
|LG 800 (chocolate)|
lasted less than 3 months.... couldn't take the super sensitivity buttons at the front....
the willingness to pay for phone drops drastically when i became the sole sponsor of all phones at home.... 蔡 mummy's, alfred's, angela's and alvin's.... =S.... having 5 phone bills and 5 phone requests on my pocket can be very very siong so new rule was that all new phones (including my own) are to be of $0 or as near to $0 as possible and have to be used for more than 21 months
|used this for 22 months and was only willing to change it because it kept restarting on its own|
bought this last sept cos it was the only $0 phone on the list.... all my friends couldnt believe that i did not get a data plan and a smarter phone then....
Then, i had to misplace my phone on the first day of term 4 and Mr Ang decided to pamper me with a samsung SIII.... and even when my phone surfaced on the 3rd day (yes, i survived more than 45 hours without my phone)... Mr Ang still insisted on getting me a new phone... but after much consideration, i opted for a SII instead... it's a total waste of money to buy a SIII for me.... and even for a S2, Mr Ang had to pay $348 for it due to the type of plan i hold.....
been holding on to the phone for a week liao.... and this is how it looks like now...
casing from Mr Ang too.... =)
My top 8 functions
my games and apps
very pathetic right???? really is a waste to get me a smart phone lo.... been really busy (& super stress) with my current art course hence no time no mood no energy to explore the new phone...
but i really really appreciate the fact that i can now just google anything anytime i like... i used to always take note of key words during courses and only google them when i reached home....now i can do it on the spot.... =)
and i found this video on youtube.... and so far learnt the first 2 'tricks' liao.... cant be bothered with the rest.... but gonna have the video here so that just in case, i m in the mood again...i can learn the next 2 and so on.... these might not be 'wow tricks' for most of u....but they are definitely 'tricks' to ME.... =P
really hope this phone is sturdy enough too.... on an average, my phone will freefall to kiss the ground at least once a week.... =(
