hmmm....just cuz I wanna save up and have nothing to buy (less motivation, less effective saving) ...and after much temptation from various factors, I've decided to make a big leap in my 'Wishlist' ... [previous accomplished entries: Altec VS4121, 200GB HDD, Wacom Graphire3, NVidia 6600GT] ....

....something 4-figure.... *shudders* ....

Canon Digital IXUS 60 X3 X3 X3

......last I checked, the price in was RM1150 (crapppp)...90bucks difference between IXUS 60 and 65.....gehh...

..yeah..crazy idea I know. And I think mum would kill me if she ever found out. Even if it was just a 'wishlist' ... ...sis would too ...she only got hers when she worked...

A digital SLR would be tooooo sweeeetttt....just dat I doubt I have time to learn up the techniques...and of course...5k is the cheapest model I could get for think for now, I'll have to be satisfied with a 'point-and-shoot' ...hell..I'll be happy enought I wun be sleeping for a week!

So I guess I should stop asking my parents and family to give me presents for XMas and birthdays and just ask for cash for the 'IXUS Fund' ...kekkekek....the ebilness....

The following is the spec sheet for IXUS 60....bla bla bla la....skip it if u dun wanna fall asleep XD

Dunno if I can manage to get this thing b4 I stuffs dat i REALLY REALLY wanna take and keep in memory... X3

...XD ..this is nutz...ahh watever... :P

p/s: ...dear...Missing you like crazy la?? >.<
