Here comes the rat

Everyone here is looking forward to the Chinese new year holidays starting middle of next week. As for us, we're taking our holidays earlier as in we're heading back home few hours from now. Baggages are ready and Jade's now sleeping with her travelling clothes on such that we'll just put on her thick jacket and carry her to the cab where she can continue to sleep. I'll be offline for few weeks so I thought of posting yet another holiday greeting in celebration of the lunar new year. According to Chinese astrology, 2008 is the year of the rat. But saying happy year of the rat seems so unlikely so to all, Happy Lunar New Year!

We had our year end company party last week and look what I got...

A TS1GPF710 Transcend 710 Digital Photo Frame. I gave it a first hand try on my desk when I got it on Wednesday. It's cute! It's still boxed until now and we'll explore it when we get back from vacation. Product features and specifications are as follows:

Never thought that a photo frame can be that sophisticated :-)

OT: Welcome back! How's the vacation?

Can't find one of those photoframe here. Yan ba yung you put amemory card and the pictures will all show on it. Saw that in one of the photoshops here but they're not yet selling.

Thanks to you all.
Lovelyn, vacation was great, somehow tiring though. Stories to follow soon :)

Re:digital photoframe - I almost forgot I have it kept in the cabinet, reminds me I have to explore and start using it. It has an internal 1Gb memory and you can also connect an external one for more capacity.Options of how to manage/show the pictures are available.It's a hot item here now.I bet at the end of this year, prices will go down as what happened to USB memory sticks where they can now be bought and given as Christmas gifts without much pain in the pocket :)
