C5 in action..

Oh man..I have been a very bad wife. :(  For 2 reasons :

1. I forgot my hubby’s birthday (ooooooooppsss!!) – that was on 25th Sept ago. But I reconciled the next day. With hugs & kisses .. XOX..
2. I didn’t buy him anything for his birthday after I forgot about it(bad bad bad!)

But but but.. I have never been that bad before ..it’s just this one time. I took oath that I would never never forget his birthday again. Guess what? I got him a brand new Nokia C5 (2 days later). In exchange of his Sony Cybershot C902 – the one in red. He sold it off to a friend upon getting his new C5. :D I know it is not an Iphone (but he never wanter an Iphone anyway). But he is happy with it. Yippie yippie!!

So, what’s good about this C5? I found it quite competitive with some other smartphones in the market. And it’s cheap – just merely RM570! Let’s see what C5 can offer you..
