Back to Black

I’ve been feeling sick since Monday (headache + a bit of sore throat + coughs + body ache). I seriously don’t know what’s up considering I’ve been getting the right amount of sleep, I bring home less work and I have been more + the past few weeks. Really not sure what’s up. Usually, what does the trick is for me to get something I really want. It can be a simple tweet, a message, or it can be something I’ve been craving for.

Examples: Getting the Pokémon Ruby cartridge years ago because I had fever and my mom just so happened to remember I love Pokémon…after beating the 3rd Gym Leader I started feeling better. When my mom bought me The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer when I was also sick, I felt better when I was halfway through the book. In college, usually just getting pats on the back had some healing properties of sorts.

I saw a laptop sleeve last Sunday from this digital accessories and whatnot store named PISMO. It’s a very bright store as in it’s mega bright. They sell a lot of things from cute USBs to hipster-like Pentax cameras, bags, mobile phone cases and anything for techies and people who aspire to be hip techie people!

Earlier this evening, despite my headache and sickly self, I went to Shang East Wing and went straight to PISMO. As I was trying to check if the case was perfect, I saw another one which looked really cool (and I slightly fell in love with it) but it looked so…common. So I went with the case I fell in love with last Sunday and happily bought it. Even cool because they had a discount..not sure why but they gave me a discount. Something with green products? Not sure.

The paper bag is really simple and cute. As in, very cute!

DSC_0052IMG_0530Sorry Martin but I am too lazy to crop you out! PS our overdue catch up!!

DSC_0016 copyNo, I don’t own a 15-inch MacBook Pro but the thing is, my laptop, with its Speck case, wouldn’t fit in the 13-inch case. Hassle to remove it from its golden yellow case!

Also awesome that I unconsciously bought something that is eco-friendly! Amazing! I had the option of choosing the Rust colored one which looks like some sort of orange, but knowing myself very well, I’d go for the black just because I like black and it’s very classic.

I’m just so happy I was able to find a sleeve that actually looks nice and it is very me. I guess unconsciously, I’m having some consistency with my own personal brand. Haha!

So did my purchase make me feel much better? In a way it did! I still feel pretty sick though! 😦 Really hoping when I wake up tomorrow I’d feel a lot better!

For now, if you want to check out PISMO and their cute stuff, you can check their Facebook Page and do swing by Shang East Wing!! 🙂
