Looking Forward To More Travels This New Year

Happy New Year! Have you been enjoying your holidays so far? Did you come to visit the places you wanted to see before the year ends? Where did you travel? I bet you had a wonderful time.

As for me, my family went on a mini-vacation last year. Not so grand but we sure had a wonderful time together. That was when we went to see a concert in Austin, Texas in November 2013. And while we were there, we too the opportunity to explore the Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown, Texas which is about 25 minutes drive from Austin. We had so much fun. My darling daughter really enjoyed the new things she saw and experienced.

Of course, wherever we go, I don’t forget to take photos for souvenir. Capturing the happy moments during our travels mean so much to me because I keep them as remembrance that I can look at every time. So I a digital camera is very handy. My mobile phone is great too, but I want a higher resolution on captured images so I use my digi cam.  And guess what?  I received a new camera for Christmas!  Thanks to the dear Santa of my life. 🙂  And then, it comes with a new laptop too.  Ain’t that amazing?  New camera and computer is great to start my year especially in blogging and traveling.

New lappy and cam. :)
May new lappy and cam. 🙂

I am looking forward to more travels this new year.  No matter how big or small getaways I’ll get.  What matters is the memories and happy experiences.  😉

 

Shopping Tonight

I drove to the grocery store to buy some items for the week.  I need to cook food for my daughter and I bought some vegetables, fruits, and meat.  It took me a while to check out because I shopped around at the electronics and kids toys area.

I was looking at digital camera that the store has for clearance sale.  The brand is nice but when I checked on the battery, it requires two AA’s which is not ideal for traveling.  Though the camera’s price is very inexpensive, still I did not buy it for battery concerns.  I like taking pictures while traveling and a long-lasting battery is a must for my camera.

Then I passed the frozen snacks section and I grabbed a package of frozen chocolate ice cream.  Boy, I was so anxious to open the package and eat one chocolate ice cream bar.  But I waited when I got home because I wanted to enjoy eating while on the couch watching the Survivor One World.

I Want A New Digital Camera

One of my electronic gadget needs an ‘upgrade’.  Yes.  I need to get a new digital camera.  Well, my husband bought a Canon Powershot digital cam for my birthday two years ago.  I loved it.  It’s just that, I want a new one.  🙂  A woman is never happy.  Haha!

I am fond of cameras.  Although they don’t like me.  I am not photogenic.  But I do like taking pictures especially when I am traveling.  Photography is one of my frustrations but it makes me happy when I take good pictures of people, places, animals, and plants.  I am more interested in taking photos of plants particularly flowers.  A picture speaks a thousand words.  And pictures are memorable things to keep.  That is why whenever we go travel or just a short visit with family and friends, I always like picture-taking.  I am among you who love capturing the beauty of a vacation spot-the beach, island, resort, and even theme parks.

In addition to the skills, a very nice and high quality digital camera can capture photos more beautifully.  I am wishing to have a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera in the near future.  Who knows, I will become a good photographer someday.  With the help of fast growing technology and high quality camera, I can work on this as a side.  Then I can take pictures beautiful pictures of my family and everything around me.
