New Cellphone, Check!

One of the items on my Christmas Wishlist is a new cellphone but I was hesitant to buy a new one since I still have the company phone issued to me two years ago and it works very fine. Just thinking “practicality”.

Until last month, Mommy already convinced me to buy a new. She told me that I need a smartphone, kahit pinakasimple lang, since I need to check on my e-mails regularly which my old cellphone could not provide. At isa pa, it has been almost 8 years the last time I bought a new phone.

While waiting for the salesman to bring my new phone for testing, Mommy is searching for a possible unit to buy on December. I told her, “Kung gusto mo, kumuha ka na din ng bago mong cellphone.”

Unfortunately, the upon testing the unit she picked is not functioning and no other stocks in the store available that time. So I told her, why not to get the same unit I got. Konti na lang naman na ang idadagdag sa price.

And here’s what we got:
