Pikom PC Fair II at KLCC

Had to rise early to have breakfast with my dad and my sis who is waiting for us in the lobby. The buffet breakfast was on the 5th floor when I was introduced to my Dad’s colleague, Mr. Ma. He is from Shanghai and has reasonable proficiency in English. He told us that he is trying to learn and is using every opportunity to speak as he did not get a chance to practice back in school.

The breakfast was decent and I soon realize how my appetite has decrease over the years. I would usually try to stuff myself at such opportunities but I somehow could not do so. It might be because I usually feel guilty afterwards if I feel that I over ate.

I further spend time with my Dad until noon before sending him off at KL Sentral to board KLIA Express. I was to head to KLCC afterwards but was shocked to look at the queue to get tickets on to the Putra LRT from KL Sentral. Luckily I had my Touch n Go which I had in mind to get rid off which allow me to jump the crowd.

Once in KLCC, I was waiting for my childhood friend of almost 16 years to accompany him at the PC Fair at KL Convention Center. He was planning to get a laptop.

We started our entry to the fair close to 2.00 p.m. and the place was huge and packed. Once again, I was wondering how they would be able to do an emergency evacuation. I sure hope they have something planned.

The fair was stretched among 5 halls with the first stretch on the 2nd floor. We were practically driven by the flow of people across the whole fair. I usually never like crowds but compromise this time because of the presence of the gadgets.

Although there were loads of bargains, I had to control myself from spending. I always buy on impulse and there were just too many deals to resist. My will power was strong this time around and I came back empty handed but with a list of items that I might buy next time around.

My friend settles for DELL after hours of research. It was the most value for money option after comparison with other major brands. We left at about 7.00 p.m.

I had dinner at Sri Petaling before heading home where I tried to catch up with my friend by showing him pictures that are in my computer.

That’s all for now. Till next time, take care.
