I was so determined not to have a repeat episode of the other week that I sent reminder SMSes to my ex-collegemates on Friday night asking if the lunch today was on. Minutes ticked by as I waited for their reply. Ooo. 10 minutes, no reply. 15 minutes, no reply. 30 minutes, no reply. Finally... 40 minutes later - Yes, see you tomorrow. Another one responded an hour plus later. The third one, till Saturday afternoon at 12.30, still no reply. Hmm.

Anyway, I prepped myself like any serious blogger armed with not 1, not 2, but 3 cameras. Haiyoh, 2 of those cameras are in my phone leh. Made sure the batteries were fully charged and safely stowed in my bag. Somehow, I still like taking pictures with my digital camera better than my mobile phone. The feel of holding a camera is waaaaay better and the picture quality is better, no matter what. Which leads me to my new wishlist item! The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3! 7.2 megapixels and 10x optical zoom. Hehehe. I love the optical zoom feature in my camera. No digital zoom please!

It was a good lunch after all. We ended up in Marche and enjoyed a good round of natter and gossip as only girls (and old friends!) can. Hard to believe that I've known them for 4 years now. Was it really 4 years ago that I was studying for my diploma? Ooo... time flies.

narrowband: Ah, I'm not the only one then who finds the phone cameras laggy? But yours got 5 megapixel camera worrrr... mine only 3.2 megapixel.

Yes, Lumix rules!

alvin: Yep, it sure is convenient, but somehow I can't live with the picture quality. Hehe.

I also feel it is a tad expensive, but once in a while ok-lah. *grin*
