Need A New Phone?

Are you looking for a new phone? A spare phone? Or a phone not so expensive to give as a gift? I am selling my brand new Nokia C1-01 phone.

This Nokia C1-01 is perfect as a spare phone or as a gift to your teenage son or daughter as their first cellphone.

Here are the specs:

- 2G Network
- Weight: 78.8 g
- Camera: 600x480 pixels
- Bluetooth
- Radio
- Video

You can also check the complete specs on GSMARENA.

I checked some sellers on eBay and they're selling it for P2,500+.
I'm selling mine for P2,300, inclusive of everything. It's Globe-locked, color Grey, opened but NEVER been used, and has a 12-month Nokia warranty. I only opened the box to check if it's complete (battery, charger, manual, headset).

If you're interested, please leave a comment here with your contact number. I won't publish it, don't worry. I hate spammers too. :) Also, I would only be available for meetups. Hopefully, I'll get to sell this within next week.

I know I should be posting this on eBay but I don't have an account there and I think it would be useless for me to create one since I'm not really a seller per se. I just want to rid of things that I don't actually use and need and besides, I would probably get more traffic here on my blog than auction sites.

Thanks guys!

Music Monday: Coldplay - Paradise

From Coldplay's latest album, Mylo Xyloto, this song has this relaxing and soothing vibe to it which aside from the artist makes me love this song even more.

It makes me imagine myself in a more less-stressful place. :)

I love Coldplay. I love their music. I love their songs. And now, I love Paradise even more because it was played during the Championship ceremony at the recently concluded ATP World Tour Finals™ when the 6 time ATP champion, Roger Federer, was being awarded his championship trophy. <3

"This could be para-para-paradise
This could be para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh"

Now, every time I hear Paradise, I see Roger lifting his huge trophy up.

Tonight Is Sports Night

For someone who is not as athletic as myself, I'm surprised why I even follow sporting events especially tennis and football. Seriously. I don't even have a sport that I play except for the occasional Wii Sports and the old-school Dance Dance Revolution which I doubt are considered as the real sporty thing.

Anyhow, tonight is a jam-packed night of sporting events: LA Galaxy vs. PH Azkals; Arsenal vs. Wigan; and Nalbandian/Schwank vs. Verdasco/Lopez, and I made sure that I finish work before football and tennis begin. I almost did it but not quite, I had to finish an article all throughout the LA Galaxy vs. PH Azkals match. Still glad it didn't take me until the Davis Cup to finish or else my concentration would be everywhere.

It blows though that Arsenal vs. Wigan and the Davis Cup Doubles are on at the same time, 11PM Manila Time. On the upside, Arsenal is shown at Star Sports (miraculously!), so I can still get to stream Davis Cup. Yey!

Ooooh, by the way, here's a sweet photo of David Beckham handing Manny Pacquiao his jersey at the match earlier:

Needless to say, LA Galaxy won over the PH Azkals with 6 goals to 1. It was a good first half though for the Philippines.

So okay, I have one eye on the TV for the Arsenal vs. Wigan and one eye on my laptop for the Davis Cup.

Who says non-sporty girls can't watch and enjoy sports? :)

Moonlit Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent

You know it's Christmas season when bazaars start to show up in every corner and malls and you get invites on Facebook from different online shops who are participating in that particular bazaar.

If you are one of those who enjoys "window online shopping", now may be your chance to get your hands on that pretty little dress, cute pair of shoes, and cool accessories without the hassle of going to the bank to deposit your payment and still wait 2-3 days for your items to be delivered to your doorstep, or the worry that you might be a victim of bogus sellers, who after you deposit your payment won't reply to you ever again.

Visit the Rockwell Tent
