day 1426 – forest blue xz

had been very good with my spendings lately so thought the timing was right to splurge and give myself a late birthday present by adding an xz to my sony collection. wanted to buy this many months ago, stayed patient for my phone case to arrive and the price to drop a bit. then waited some more for the one plus five release, but still set on my forest blue xz. setting up the phone just the way i like it will take some time.

day 698 – z3 upgrade

image

i finally got the phone i have been dreaming and drooling about for the past year. feels like just yesterday i thought i convinced myself to settle with the z3 and today it’s another upgrade to the all new z3+ cause i know i couldn’t settle for anything less. don’t underestimate the slightest addition of the plus because it makes the difference in the world and worth the nine hundred dollars i invested. super stoked to finally get my hands on sony’s flagship phone of the year, i am sure my eyes glow when staring at the phone

looking further ahead and thinking for long term is the smart thing to do now. its never a bad thing to start early and create a good habit to control monetary usage and handle cash flow with care. at a point where i should start thinking about investments, assets and things that would affect the markets. the last thing i need is to see my bank account balances dip slowly because of poor monetary management and unnecessary expenses. that means, controlling the frequency of eating out, holding back often temptations for online shopping and differentiating between wants and needs. its no secret i put much emphasis in my technology, my car, and my taekwondo gear. i like shopping and i love new things, who doesn’t? online shopping has made it so easy for me to make purchases, i could be spending way more than i would want to without realizing until i receive my credit card bill in the mail. for example, it doesn’t help that i have not used any phone model for more than two years, in fact, record shows i have had four phones in the past four years and three laptops within the past six years. recent investment in yet another uniform to add to my ever growing collection of taekwondo gear, but i swear this time is for a good cause

day 405 – techy

announcement of new iphones made me think of my phone collection. love every single one of them and keep them all in mint condition. it’s crazy how reliant i have become on technology especially noticeable with the recent crash of my laptop hard drive that gave me plenty of extra stress. over a week since i lost all my data and i am still trying to recover the great deal of lost vital data and documents

day 160 – guess what

it’s arrived and finally unlocked!! the first gadget that i buy for myself in the new year is an expensive one indeed. it’s a dream come true, the purple exterior makes the model that much sleeker than black or any other colour. too scared to use it while still waiting upon the arrival of my phone case and screen protectors
