Nostalgia

Oyasumi minna-san!

Recently, MK was in her parents’ room when she stumbled upon a very farmiliar-looking CD. I recognized it as an old dance CD my sister always used to blast really loudly in the house when my parents weren’t home. I think I was about 6 years old around that time. Since it’s that old, it was really badly scratched and I was pretty sure it wouldn’t work. Still, I popped it into my CD drive (since normally computers do much better with scratched CD than CD players).

It actually seemed to be working, so I quickly zipped through the songs for anything that sounded farmiliar. In particular, I was actually looking for this one song that I used to really like. I couldn’t remember much about the song other than that it was a techno-ish song with a female singer. In the end I ended up finding three songs that I remember.  I ripped them to my PC. Two of them, I don’t think, are very popular, but the third one is a very well-known song: It’s called September ’99 by Earth, Wind and Fire.

Oh! Also, MK found a really cool charm for her Palm Centro today! [^_^] It actually came attached to this bottle of perfume that I got from my dad. The funny thing is, I hate getting perfume, and this one costed my dad like $60, but instead of being all excited about the perfume itself, MK was very happy with her little charm which fit perfectly on her phone. [¯v¯] Here’s MK’s new charm:↓

Anyway, it’s now time for MK to head to bed… Plus my mom’s begging me to use my laptop for something [u__u].

Oh! Gomenassai (Sorry) for taking so long to update my blog. This week has been a real blur. Not sure where all my time went. [>_<]{Sorry)

Sayou!

MK’s long-awaited PALM CENTRO Review!!!

*SUPER EXCITED!*

*SUPER EXCITED!*

KONBANWA MINNA-SAN!!! [^-^]/

Is minna-san having a lovely day today? Well, MK has wonderful news…

My Palm Centro (dream keitai) has arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

\[*Δ*]/{YAYAAYAYAYAYAAAAAY!!!!)

Wow! MK is still in awe that her phone which she worked so long and hard for, has finally arrived in her hands! [•◊•]{?!)

I actually got it on Friday, so MK will share with minna-san a quick story of when she recieved her phone:

It was Friday, I had just gotten home from my unexpected trip to the hospital (I was having issues with my heart – gonna have to give blood tomorrow [0.0] for them to figure out what’s up). I decided, since I was going out of the house to go to work, I might as well pass by the Post Office on my way there. I really didn’t expect for anything to be there because they said they’d call me when it arrived. But I went anyway, and to my surprise, the guy working there called me over and said that MY PACKAGE HAD ARRIVED!!! MK stayed very calm as the package was handed over to her (didn’t want to act crazy in front of all those people). After recieving two packages (one with new keitai and one for grandpa), I walked quickly to the phone company placey where I bought a SIM card for my new phone! I wasn’t fully sure whether I should go to work with my package and open it there (I had about 25 min before I had to be at work), or if I should run home and quickly unbox the phone and carry it to the shop. I decided to do the last option, that’s why the pictures for the review will seem a bit rushed…

Alright, time for the pictures of the…

UNBOXING

Note: Many of these pictures are pretty much pointless, but at the time MK felt as though she had to record every step of the unboxing.

OK, so MK quickly opened her box and saw purple bubble-wrap. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen purple bubble-wrap before in my life…

Purple Bubblewrap - fun to play with!

So, after taking out the pretty purple bubble-wrap, MK discovered, to her fascination…. [0.0]

The box of her PALM CENTRO!!!!

I then took the box out of the shipping box, with much caution – didn’t want anything to go wrong…

Inside of the box I found…

– A “Read this First” Booklet…

Of course, I did not read it first - Who has time for that?

So… That was the unboxing of MK’s new Palm Centro!

Something that MK noted as she was unboxing:

  • The size of the phone. Trust me when I say this. The Palm Centro is a very decieving little guy. When you see him in pictures, he looks so big and fat and heavy. But when you see him in person… it’s quite a shock. At least it was for me.

The tiny size of the phone is one of my favorite things about this phone. I’ve never been a fan of big chunky phones that look like a PSP, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see just how small it is.

One thing that many people seem to complain about with this phone, concerning it’s size, is the keyboard. Honestly, it is quite small. And I can understand why most people would have a problem with that. It’s not such a big deal for me because my hands aren’t that big. But I wouldn’t advise my dad or any man above the age of 11 to get this phone because I really don’t know how someone with hands as big as my dad’s (or bigger) could manage with such a tiny phone.

So, the keyboard can easily become unbearable if you don’t have small hands. That’s why I think that in general, you should only buy this phone if you’re a teenage girl or a woman with really small hands. Advice to anyone who’s planning on buying a Palm Cento: Try it out, if you can.

OK, on to…

The CAMERA:

The Palm Centro has a 1.3 megapixel camera. Nothing special…. It can take pictures (2x zoom) and record videos (no zoom).

MK took two pictures with her Centro:

No zoom

No zoom - LOL Hello Kitty!

Sorry about the lame topics of my pics. I really didn’t have anything interesting to take pics of [-_-].

Now for the video…. OK, I did this video myself. Very embarrassing, but again, I had nothing better to tape…

[…]

Uh oh! The type of file that the Centro’s videos are cannot be uploaded… [-__-] I’m gonna have to look for a converter if I want to be able to use those vids for anything. Accept my apologies [u_u]…

Hmmm, what else is there to say?

Don’t have much else to say. One bad thing is that the USB cable is kinda hard to disconnect from the phone and I’m always afraid that I might break something while pulling it so hard to get it out…

About how MK’s enjoying having this new phone:

I really love it. Of course I don’t get tons of calls, and I have a prepaid cellphone account, so I always have to watch how much I’m calling or texting. But I do really like being able to always contact whoever I need to contact. Also, I’ve set up twitter on my phone, so I can send tweets through text messages, which is very cool…

Alright, MK is getting tired. This has been a very long post and I’m now ready to retire to my quarters to enjoy my phone some more! [^-^]v

Sayou!
