Of 20 bucks down the drain

Went to a handphone fair at Jaya 1 recently cause a colleague of mine was looking to buy a new smartphone.

As it turned out, most of the phones on sale there were either fake models (Iphone -> “Phone”, without the “I”), older models (black and white punya generation) or just plain kooky (Hello Kitty phone zomg).

But all was not wasted, cause I ended up buying a thumbdrive and laptop sticker at a bargain – albeit unbeknownst to the seller.

The displayed price of the thumbdrive was RM28 and the sticker cost RM25.

Me: Oh, both for RM50 can?
Seller: CANNOT LAH! So cheap already where can discount samo.
Me: Haiyo can lar, cheaper a bit only ma.
Seller: *Ponders. OK lah the thumbdrive cannot give cheaper, but the sticker I give you for RM20.

Uh.
That’s like RM48 only dude, you just threw away 2 bucks lol.

Somebody need to go for maths classes edi.

Anyway, the gang was supposed to gather on the night of the Mooncake Festival so I brought along my laptop and the sticker, in search of free labourers to help me stick it on.

And it turned out to be a total disaster.

The guys actually spent one whole hour laughing and telling me how ugly it looks argh!

Uh. I think Soon Seng didn’t notice he was holding it upside down.

According to the instructions, I was supposed to cut the sticker according to the size of the laptop, and we all know that’s just a recipe for disaster.

The first thing I did was to cut out the silicone keyboard protector. But it turned out looking like shit cause it doesn’t really stick to the keys or anything. It’s just lying there like that damn ugly ok!!!

Apparently it only sticks to the keys which I use very often, i.e. has a lot of oil on it boo.

And then I failed to notice that the bottom 3 keys on the right were popping out so I had to “extend” the thing so now it looks double ugly.

In desperation, I threw the whole thing to the 3 engineers to settle. They seemed pretty keen at first, discussing and planning in advance – something I totally failed to do. At one point they even took out a piece of paper to sketch the blueprints of the laptop lol.

HOI! I thought kuli weren’t allowed to quit! Ish.

So I came home and tried doing it myself.

And yeah, it looks like triple shits now.
