5pm today was supposed to have been quite a scorcher, but the haze reduced the baking sun to a glaring orange glow in the sky. To haze or not to haze?
Quite a good mood today, as I wandered around Tampines Mall, waiting for my mother. Of course, as usual it turned out that she went home straight and claimed that she did not see my two missed calls.
Strolling around the third level, I spotted Cards 'n' Such and decided to go in to have a look for a handphone holder, which I've been wanting for a long time. Turns out they did have them, and even with holes to pull your charging wire through. Just what I wanted.
It suddenly occurred to me then to take a stroll around the floor to see if there was anything else to spend on. If I really thought I wanted the handphone holder, my decision would not suffer the test of time. There popped in two other contenders along the way. First was an NIV Bible. To my pleasant surprise there was a cheap (no-frills, naturally) pew version of the Bible for just $15.90 (expensive? Bibles average at $35). I wanted an NIV version for reference because the translations are so different, that especially when I'm talking to Ryan, and he's holding an NIV (New Intl Version) and I'm holding an NLT (New Living Translation), we are saying two different things. The meaning is there, but the differing choice of words can seriously be confusing.
The Zildjian Trilok Gurtu Signature drumsticks were the other contender.
I was very impressed by it when I tried it out on the digital drum set the other day. Light, thin, good grip, and I, an non-drummer, could do pretty impressive things with it.
The thing is, my brother has an NIV Bible that he hardly touches. And the drumsticks - I don't play drums, so of what freaking use would a pair of drumsticks be to me?
So I got the handphone holder. A black porcelain cat kinda smiling like ^^. Lovely indeed.
