my self-declared V-day gift!



I have been considering getting myself a photo printer for the longest time now, as I've been fed up with the quality of prints I've been getting from both my HP printers. Naturally, I gravitated towards an Epson brand this around all thanks to the positive feedback i've been getting, but I have obviously not been too keen enough, until now! ;) OK, Cabbie's post just pushed me over the edge! I decided it's finally time to get it. All of last week, I went and scoured all the shops at Town and at the Southmall, but I simply could not find the printer in stock! Dang, dang, dang! I kept getting the same answer: they'd have to special order it for me and it would take anywhere from 3 - 7 days to get it, that is if their supplier had it in stock! But..... I wanted that printer now!!!

Earlier this evening, I finally asked Cabbie where her DH was able to score one. Ding, ding, ding!!! Octagon in Megamall, hmm? Since Tubbyboy was somewhere in the vicinity of Makati, I had the crazy idea of actually asking him to go and get me one. OK maybe that was not such a hot idea. I don't think he'd relish driving through traffic just to get me a printer he doesn't want me to be buying anyways. So, my next plan was to call the store and ask if they would so kindly ship the printer to their branch in Southmall. My patience was so sorely tested just trying to get a number for Octagon. In the end, I succeeded! So I dial the correct number only to be crest-fallen as they didn't have it in stock anymore! Boohoo! I call the MOA branch, no luck! My last resort was to call their branch in Festival. Oh, I got lucky!!! They had it! I had it reserved but was told that I had to get it tonight! Time check: 8PM! Cool! Plenty of time to change and get there! And now.... it's finally sitting pretty in my room. I just did a test print and guess who's smiling like a cheshire cat now? ;D
