Online shopping gets me excited!

Thursday, December 25, 2008


The Internet has revolutionized everything - information, entertainment, social networking, communication, and of course shopping.

Since I started exploring the cyber world in 1998, I have already had my hands full on searching information in Google, reading news articles from websites, streaming videos and music files, uploaded pictures on popular photo and video hosting services, connected with friends through various social networking sites, sent personal messages, email and voice chat to my relatives and friends here and abroad, tried out some gaming consoles but I've never done shopping online yet.

Recently, I have received my VISA card and although I have not added it yet to PAYPAL because of the long holidays I am so excited about my first online shopping experience.

I hope I can afford the IPhone but even if I do, I think it's being too lavish. Anyway, I can still use my old phone, have a separate video/camera (my mom's), and have a broadband Internet connection at home. I don't like playing games anyway because I could spend that time doing other productive things. My MP4 (my sister's gift) has been busted almost a year ago and I am hoping/wishing somebody will give me IPOD 16GB Touch. You can imagine how frugal I am (*giggles*). I just want to put much value on money since we know that many people are living beyond poverty line while few others expend on luxurious items that they don't even need.

But you know sometimes when we really like something we tend to justify. For instance I am comvincing myself that owning an IPhone or even IPOD is very phenomenal - I can browse the Internet, watch movies which I love doing and most especially listen to more than 2000 songs anywhere I go.

Actually I am torn on whether I will buy or not. Do you think an IPOD is a luxury or a necessity?

Necessity is a thing that you can't live without, therefore ipod is a luxury because you can live without it..
