PIKOM PC Fair 2005 (III)

Again, I went to this PC Fair twice. I went on Friday for a preview session and again on Sunday to spend some money. The arrangement of the fair is exactly the same like last time with 5 halls, one exhibition hall on the higher floor and 4 other halls joint together to become a large computer hardware bazaar.

This time, I've got something in mind before I go. I've bought a piece of DDR RAM which is not for me. My colleague requested me to buy for him. It costs him only RM75. Then, I bought a LG DVD writer for only RM160. Also, it's not for me. It's for my brother in Sabah.

After rounding the place for hours, I finally found something for myself. I subscribed to PC Magazine for only RM 45. My friend, William paid the other half to get the free gift, a Logitech webcam. I don’t need the webcam. I've got my A4Tech webcam.

During the fair, I found myself wondering around, not knowing what to buy for myself. Maybe I really have everything I ever needed. The one last time I'm going to get should be a PDA. I saw a very good offer there. They are selling the HP 6365 (with free gifts worth RM1000) for only RM1888! However, I'm still undecided. I still can't make up my mind, whether to get a single machine for phone + PDA or I should separate them. I'll see what they have next time.

Though everytime I know I have nothing to buy, I still find myself wandering around in every PC fair. I just don't understand myself!

eBay Explained! 2005

It was actually last 2 week (2005.11.19) when we (Seng Yaw and I) went to eBay Explained! 2005. I've been waiting for so long till I received this photo today from Eric Tan, an acquaintance we met at the event. Thanks, Tan. It was taken during the eBay 1st Anniversary Party.

If you would like to know more about the event, I've written a full report on it - eBay Explained! 2005: The Event.
