My little red rice ....

Lately there was this Xiaomi craze on the internet where the China phone maker would sell their phones online on a Tuesday afternoon weekly. And, most of time, the phones were snapped up within minutes! (Some said it's 10 seconds....!!) Well, definitely it's due to the affordability of the phones as well as the great features, which is a really good buy ! I was lucky, where I got one myself last Tuesday where my colleagues were still pressing the order button for many times. To me, it was so smooth where I only need to press once and that leads me to the checkout page. Anyway, I only got the cheapest and lowest specs in Redmi 1s, to replace my iphone 3s, which I used it in Malaysia. My old phone finally called it a day despite I replaced the battery not too long ago.


It took one week to receive the goods it came with the phone and charger, in a recyclable type of box.  

Charging my phone ... overall, good enough for me to use in JB for my Malaysian line. I still love my Samsung Note 3, anyway.
Had a bento after a great workout tonight. It's really been awhile since I had a bento, probably, 5 days ago. I really miss it!!

yums...here's my bento ....
Have a good weekend!! :)

  2. You call 5 days "a while"? hee..hee...I can see that you love your Bento. It's good anyway. A bit of this and a bit of that and it is very filling. My partner bought this phone too for me but I prefer to stick to my auntie Nokia phone. So he is using of for himself. My Nokia has to die first before I switch because I dread having to learn how to use the new phone.
