Retail therapy

Today I spent ten thousand pesos in a single shopping trip in Trinoma. Now, as extravagant as it sounds, it’s only because of a major purchase: a new cellphone.
I bought a Samsung Corby Pro B3410. It’s a full touchscreen phone with a sliding QWERTY keypad. It has excellent sound quality and great photo resolution. This baby cost me PHP7500.
Since this is the first time I bought a cellphone with my own money (even though I didn’t save up for it, it’s still my money because my mom gave it to me as a birthday present), I’m thinking I should give it a name, kinda like how some people name their laptops or DSLRs. What do you guys think I should name it? Comment, please!

The remaining PHP2500 of my money, however, I spent in Powerbooks.
After years of lusting after it, I finally bought the Griffin and Sabine trilogy. Yay! Each book cost PHP899 each. I also bought Pugad Baboy and Kikomachine Komix.
Yes, I am a dork.
We had lunch at Five Cows, a restaurant/ice cream house where my aunt works. Let me tell you something: the pasta in Five Cows is incredibly delicious, and the ice cream is orgasmic. Seriously. The first time we ate there, I could not get enough of their Ferrero Crunch Supreme.
Today I opted for Balls of Fire, an ice cream baked (?) in a dark chocolate dome. It was set on fire in front of us, which is the main reason why I ordered it. It was okay – bitter, yet satisfying.
When the four of us (me, Mama, Tita Ninang, and my cousin Dylan) finished, we could barely breathe; we were so full.
For dinner, we ate at Oki Oki, a Japanese restaurant. Dylan and I were the only ones who ate sashimi (raw fish were unappealing to our squeamish moms).
It was such a fun day! To a materialistic girl such as myself (I admit it), shopping is one the the best ways to spend a weekend.
