Missing you Dell

I missed using my Dell lappy. It was a gift from my brother Bong two years ago.

To Saudi with Love

While working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as a Nurse, my brother Bong gave me his Dell Laptop all the way from Fremont, California via US Post to Saudi Post.

I was overjoyed upon receiving this Dell Laptop. He told me he used this slightly because he bought a more popular brand.

Oh Em Gee

A month ago, something happened to this lappy. I accidentally swipe the cord of the charger with my hand while standing up and kaboom … it dropped on the floor. Oh my gooshness, can’t believed it happened. I immediately picked it up to check if the screen was broken. I turned it on, but it didn’t start. What seems to be the problem?

The next morning, I asked our neighbor technician to fix it and he told me the charger was not functioning and cannot be used again. Better buy a new one. If I’ll buy a new one, the original dell charger would cost me almost a 80-100dollars here. I can’t afford it at this time. If I’ll choose to buy the brandless charger, its roughly 30 dollars. I told myself in time, if I have the money.

Making use of what is available

At present, I’m using my 5 year old desktop. Well, I recently reformatted it and it’s working well. I just hope it will keep on working until I have money to buy a new one.

Wish me luck folks :-)

My laptop charger quit altogether. Had to get a new one. Aren't computers wonderful? They stop you in your tracks when they're not working.
