My Cellphone Chronicles

Yes I do have a cellphone. I currently use a BlackBerry Bold 9780 as I have a hard on for BlackBerry. Here is my history of using cellphone and I’m gonna try and do this chronologically and as accurate as possible:

November 2002 : Almost bought a Nokia 3310 but changed my mind at the last moment as I didn’t have the money

July 2003 : bought my first cellphone, a Motorola T190. Very solid but not user friendly at all. Black and grey screen.

March 2004 : Bought a Samsung R220. Nice phone.

September 2004 : Sold the Samsung and bought a Nokia 1100 (the made for India phone)

October 2005 : Bought my first colour screen cellphone – a Sony Eriksson K500i. Colour display, camera, GPRS & MMS. Had solid sound playback but very limited storage space.

June 2006 : I wanted a flip phone so badly and got the Motorola Razor V3i. Loved it so much.

April 2007 : No idea why but I sold the Razor and got a Samsung SGH E250. It was an ok, slider phone but I have no idea why I sold the Motorola.

November 2008 : The Samsung SGH got damaged after I tripped and fell on the railway tracks and I got a Nokia 2600. I hated this phone but it was cheap and I didn’t want to spend much on a phone at the time. I also went through a ‘don’t care about phone stage for a while”. During this time I also used an iphone for 2 months that was in my possession at work. Wasn’t impressed.

Jan 2010 : Got my first BlackBerry, the Curve 8320 and I love it still. It’s a bit damaged but it still works and I have it in a drawer stored as a possible backup.

April 2012 : Bought my current phone, the Bold 9780. I had to return the first one they sent me, which was a white one, due to a software issue and then got the black one. Love it a lot!

Saturday Afternoon Out With My Cousin

I hadn’t met my cousin Sujith since the first week of August. When we usually meet it’s to discuss Science Fiction movies & tv series, maybe some music and stuff. And ofcourse to eat some good food and have a few drinks. Today we spoke in the morning and decided to meet up in the early afternoon. Today’s destination is our favourite place – Golden Dragon (the original branch in Ravipuram) at around 12:30pm.

I met him at the assigned time and we went in after a brief stop at the ATM on the main road. We wanted the above dish which was Szechwan fried prawns. Delicious but I remember them being much bigger than this. We also ordered some vodka and Sprite.

We also had some dragon chicken and then spilt some fried rice & noodles with garlic prawns and Hong Kong chicken. Alhough the food was good the waiters messed up our orders and came back twice saying that a dish we had ordered was not available. Plus they also got our bill wrong at the end, charging us for something we didn’t get and not charging us for a dish we ordered. I dunno what has happened to these guys. This has never happened there before!

Anyway we had a wonderful time drinking our vodkas and eating good food and chatting for almost 3 hours and 45 minutes. This is one reason we love this place; great authentic Chinese food and they serve alcohol and you can chillax for hours. Post that we decided to get some sundaes and went to Cocoa Tree and ordered their Rocky Road sundaes which are just awesome. This place also has a lot of chicks any time of the day. That done by 5:15pm we left our separate ways.
