My new toy

I had a long day out today.

First thing, we went shopping for my new toy and Rick's too. He got himself a new Canon lens, and mine? THIS!!!!!!!

Canon IXUS 80 IS

I've been eyeing for this long time. Yeah, the sleek fashionable design and of course the colours caught my attention to this little thing. After a brief read of the reviews, my desire of owning one of these was set on stone. I WANT IT! So, today is the day!

Brown! It is love at first sight! I also bought a Canon IXUS white leather pouch to dress my baby up!

And this is my ancient Canon Powershot A80 which has served me for more than 5 years. I still like it very much but it is really too bulky and heavy for me to carry everyday. It will be semi retired.

To conclude the day, we had some Indian curries for dinner, at Roti Chenai.....

Fish Korma

Chicken Masala

Me, very happy! \(^O^)/

hey cool new camera! I've been wanting to get a new one to replace my old Nikon but ahhhh, haven't really found one I really like yet. besides the only thing wrong with my old cam is that the battery flap can't close and I have a rubberband around it... lol!

Doreen said...

Yeah, after a long wait, finally! Hehehehe.

You think so too? *high 5*

Doreen said...
Hi there! Sure sure (^_^)

Thanks thanks! Hehehehe

LOL, that's a very practical solution. I take you would be more likely to go for Nikon since you're already a Nikon user? I started with Canon, and once a Canon, always a Canon user. Too lazy to switch. LOL

I want I want! I desperately need a new camera! Please do a review if you can (no pressure though, hun). I've been told to look into the Sony Cybershot series?

Doreen said...

Oh, this Canon IXUS is a babe I tell you. It gives me all I wanted. I've never done a review on gadget before and that will be a real challenge.

Not sure about Sony Cybershot since I have never used Sony before, but my friend said it is quite good too. I'm biased if you ask me, I only want Canon! LOL.

MisSmall said...

Sorry dear. Don't worry about the review. Don't know where that came out. I, for the life of me, wouldn't know how to do a review on gadget except to say "um, this is quite good....I think?". LOL

I guess I'm just really sick of my current camera and REALLY want a good point-and-shoot camera. That's all I can handle, being my technology-incompatible self. None of those fancy SLR for me. :P

awww... nice!! nice brown..nice white dress as well.. congrats! I am so happy for you... my hubby use A80 all this time..:-)

Doreen said...

It's alright dear. My previous comment would be how I review a gadget. LOL.

Oh your hubby also an A80 owner? A80 is quite good, isn't it?

Wow, lovely new toy.
Sleek and sexy :)

Btw, which lens did Rick get for himself? :)

Doreen said...

He bought the Canon 70-300 mm IS lens.
