the laptop's here. it's a sony vaio. an old model but who's complaining? not i, lord.

it's a hand-me-down from my younger sister girlie. she's got loads of money and buys only branded. so, lucky me.

my tech guru of a friend sherwin columbres installed adobe indesign, photoshop, and illustrator, as well as adobe premiere and audition. Yey! for some weird reason, my sister used microsoft works, so i had microsoft office installed.

little sister also had about a dozen photo editing/managing programs installed. i wonder what that was all about. needless to say, i zapped 95% of them this morning.

my problem is that i need to get a pc card to get wireless internet connection. sherwin says that'll cost me 900 to 1,000 pesos. he said i should go to pctopia on nuñez (at the back of ateneo) instead of octagon or elsewhere because its cheaper there.

i'm lucky to have a sister who gives me her old computers. maybe a couple years -- hopefully less -- down the line, i'll upgrade to what she is mangling now, an imac. i know, i'm pathetic.

and lucky also to have someone patient and smart like sherwin to help me sort out this new old junk. if, one of these days, sherwin finally yells at me after i ask him one of my stupid questions, i would laugh and ask him what took him so long.


  1. wow! a new toy. congrats maam yen. I am praying for a laptop too. sana may magbigay din sa akin. :)

  2. I'm looking for a new one too...I'm currently happy with my macbook...thinking of getting a toshiba instead..ugh
    btw, I heard ateneo has an art gallery na, will it be open when I get to zambo on the 19th of december? I wanna check it out

  3. buddha b, the gallery keeps the same office hours as the rest of the university. its worth a visit, promise. i think floreta's exhibit will still be on by then.

  4. oh cool...Dodi was my art mentor way back 1993
