Camera-dearie

Bhai's whereabouts: Bhai's left Mumbai after chomping on gazillions of pani puris and is now on a road trip somewhere in New Zealand.

I've been wanting to upgrade my digital camera for quite some time. And finally I did it. Errrmm... not in the way I intended to, but I did it nevertheless.

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting Smart Sayesha's 7-step camera upgrade plan:

Step 1: Plan trip to Puri beach with family and friends.
Step 2: Place digital camera in purse.
Step 3: Smartly place bottle of sunscreen too into aforementioned purse.
Step 4: In car on the way back, ensure sunscreen bottle magically opens/cracks and sunscreen spills out such that every nook and corner of digital camera, including battery compartment and USB port, is filled with a gooey white liquid. If necessary, sit on purse to carry this out effectively.
Step 5: Examine camera to check that it is indeed permanently damaged. Express shock. Attempt to hold back tears.
Step 6: Between tears, show camera to Viv and let him examine it. When he shakes his head and hands the camera back, yell "What kind of an engineer are you??? You can't even repair a digicam???" Remember to conveniently forget that you are an engineer too. Electronics at that. Wince as he takes revenge by gleefully relating to her friends the story of "How Sayesha ruined her digicam".
Step 7: Bid tearful goodbye to old cam and buy new cam for NZ trip.

Shabash Sayesha, kya dimaag dikhaya! Sheesh! :/

On the brighter side, with 2 GBs of memory in the new camera, Hopscotch's gonna be hopping real high when I return to Singapore in end Feb! :)

TMaYaD said...

Hopscotch, haan? Still waiting for you wedding pics. :P

BTW, which model is your new cam?

TMaYaD said...

And IMHO, what hurts more than a destroyed cam is the destroyed moments that I wanted to remember.

jane said...

you already know the upside to this one: 2 GB :-)

hope you transferred pics during india trip that might have been on the cam before it decided it needed sunblock :P

NZ would look amazing captured in photo posterity, so that's something to look forward to :)

neihal said...

all's well that ends with a new better camera ;)
Enjoy! :)

Sakshi said...

Hehe. I did that to my old Kamputar. So that it could be trashed and my Dad forced to buy me a new one.

Hope you have lotsa fun in Kiwi land :)

ROFL

Iday said...

Apart from the 2GB, the new cam must be faster, snazzier, probably smaller and probably cuter compared to the older one :)

Since it was a much needed upgrade anyway, enjoy the new cam. And a huge yaaaaay for the promise abt Hopscotch :)

Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
Our country is in debt until forever, we don't have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!

jane said...

lol @ anon...wrong propaganda at the wrong address!! :D what's that got to do with a camera that likes sunscreen lotion pal? :P

soleil said...

Oh no! At times like that, there's really nothing much you can do except think, "How could I do something so stupid?!?!" Nevermind, a new camera is always good considering how fast technology advances and thus how quickly your old camera becomes branded "outdated" ;) I know the two of you are having a blast in NZ! :D

Sanyukta said...
