Kat US ni banyak gak la gadgets yang best and up-to-date. Harga pulak kira reasonable and even cheaper kalau nak compare dengan the one that we have in Malaysia. Its kinda cheap actually, but the thoughts of spending the allowances for those gadgets, not really a good move. Better spend the money elsewhere.
Some of the gadgets ni sebelum beli rasa macam best je kalau dapat, tapi bila dah ada, takut tak fully utilize. For instance, game console mcm Nintendo Wii or PS3, takut before beli berangan je nak main. Bila dah beli nanti, tak de time nak main, or even worse, asyik main sampai tak buat keja lain. Either options are bad, I know.
This dilemma reminds me the Psychology 101 class during Undergrad years, the dilemma is actually a conflict to fulfill your needs and wants. Even though, I never enjoyed the class due to the lecturer, but it suddenly does make some sensed. Needs are the those requirements to fulfill the basic necessity of life; clothes, shelter and foods. In contrast to the wants, its for of fulfillment of the desire. What ever it is, its all falls back to the basic. Bak kata pepatah Melayu, "Ukurlah baju di badan sendiri". Its almost true in respect to the peribahasa, lagipun buat apa ukur baju untuk orang lain pakai.
Among my wishlist are as follows:
1. Nintendo Wii or PS3 - both at the range of $300
3. HDTV - around $500
4. iPhone - 2 options ($399 - 8Gb or $499 16Gb)
5. Taylormade R7 golf set - around $399
6. Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet Tennis Racquect - $99
Side notes: Selection handphones kat US sangat la tak best. Not like the wide range of selections macam yang kita ada kat Malaysia. Sini handphones semua basic, kalau nak extra features pun cuma ada Blackberry and iPhone je la.
I'm sure the other half of together-gather pun ada her own wishlist...
