Pictures to ease the loneliness of being apart

Friday, January 30, 2009

Last year, I shared to you that my boyfriend had been planning to work abroad for our future.
Many of you shared your thoughts when I brought up the dilemma on whether I too, should marry him earlier than planned and go with him in a foreign land to work.

Well, my boyfriend left last Wednesday while I stayed behind. I could not go with him because he chose a job in KSA where there are very few job opportunities for women. For the four to five years that we've been together, this is the first time we are apart.

We took as many photographs together before he left. We captured those wacky moments full of laughter, our long walks at the shoreline, trips to the mall, his visits at my home. We also had a picture-taking session at a local studio. The problem is they're too numerous to print! Surely there is a better way.

Soon enough, I found Ceiva digital photo frames. Basically, it is an 8-inch high definition LCD screen (with a frame of course) that will display a slideshow of your photos direct from your phone. You just need to connect your phone to it using a data cable and it will work even without computer or internet connection. The best thing is that they have a running promo and it's only $29.99 with free ground shipping until February 13th.

Gotta hurry before the promo ends. I wonder, is shipping really free even in the Middle East?

Hi Pchi!

Wow! Umalis na siya. Good to know that he's planning for your future - and with a good job.

I hope makuha ka rin niya sa middle east. I met lots of online friends, blogger and non-bloggers who had taken their families to live in the middle east.
