New phone + G-market

0

It's been a month since I have last blogged, so here I am now. To be honest, I don't really have much to blog about but I do want to record down my first time doing online shopping and me finally getting myself a new phone.

The very classy black box. It looks a lot like a jewellery box.


The Samsung Galaxy S2 has caught my eye ever since it debuted. In fact, I am really a sucker for Samsung products, to the point that I have been using Sammy phones ever since my brain permits me to remember (I've only used a Nokia and a Motorola and have been stuck with Sammy since then).

So here I am now, typing this blog post with my phone. It has really been such a joy to use. In fact, I think I'm just meant to be with the S2. I remembered asking my mum whether I could get it, but her answer was in the negative because it was really expensive. She remained firm on her stance even though she liked it and finally, she relented a few weeks back. When we were at the handphone shop, she asked me if I wanted to get the Galaxy Note LOL! I was shocked beyond words because the Note was about $150 more expensive (with the $39 plan) and it was because of the price that my mum didn't allow me to get the S2 in the first place.

Just as I was wondering whether I should get the Note instead, we were told that it was out of stock. The choice now was whether to get the coral pink or white S2. As it turned out, the coral pink S2 was also out of stock, so I settled for the white one instead, which really saved me a lot of trouble. ;P

I'm really loving my phone so much now, and how Android allows one to customise one's phone to his own whims and fancy. I can't wait for Sammy to release the S3! In fact, with the exception of the Note, I find all phones very tiny now LOL. This is especially so when I compare the screen size of my old phone to my S2. Huge difference ok! The size of my whole old phone is only about 2/3 the size of the screen of my S2, and that being said, my old phone's screen was rather big during its time haha. And heehee, thanks to the big screen that I am used to now, I won't be taking any other phones with screens smaller than my S2, so I'm really hoping that S3 would be one big glorious beauty. ;D

My products from G-market. They cost about $44 altogether.


A friend told me that G-market sold cheap handphone covers, so I decided to take a look to find covers for my S2. This is my first time shopping online, which I didn't do so the past years because I don't think I had my own bank account LOL (or rather, I didn't know the existence of it haha). I ended up buying many other things as well, like skincare products from South Korea, which are really much cheaper than what you find in the Korean cosmetic stores here.

Initially, I was really worried that my goods wouldn't be sent to me because it was taking such a long time, especially for my phone covers. Thank goodness all the things that I ordered arrived right at my doorstep in one go today. I'm also not sure why since I ordered them at different dates, but thanks to Zoey for reassuring me during the weekend that my goods will arive soon though she's like 6316 km away, 2 hours ahead of me. ;)

Anyway, my exams are coming up real soon, so I guess I won't be blogging much or shopping online as much now heehee. I have lectures from 8.30 am to 6.30 pm straight tomorrow, so I'll go to sleep now. ;)
