If you haven’t found out why I started this challenge, it’s to help train my brain to be more positive- you can do it too! Check out the previous post to start off!
Grateful Day 20 – Morning + Afternoon + Night
I am grateful for the sun! It’s always sunny in Singapore that I actually grew up wishing at times for the sun to just disappear lol! Needless to say, at the time, I’ve never understood why people from Europe and other continents would say that they really love it here in Singapore until I experienced my first winter years ago in my visit to the Netherlands. Oh boy, it sure was eye opening. Talk about “Winter is coming” 😛
I am also grateful for the Game of Thrones! WOW I tell ya, I have never ever imagined myself being sucked into the world of fantasy like this one. My journey with the series was kinda special because I initially couldn’t get into it. In fact, I tried to avoid it because of the sex stuff and boy am I glad to give it a chance after playing the TellTale Game of it.
The story is just MIND BLOWING! The houses’ words too like “Winter is coming”?
It’s more than just what it seems. I think I’ll write a post about this in future, for now let’s move on!
Finally, I am also grateful for a computer dealer that I just finished talking to. Why? Well here’s a little story.
So as you probably know by now, I’m a streamer and I use a MacBook Pro for it (Who does that? XD) so I have some viewer requests to play games which is only available on Windows OS- which is something I can’t do without sacrificing memory space for bootcamp etc.
That said, I decided to buy another computer while selling my MBP. That’s when I found this guy’s offer on an online listing. He is selling an Asus RoG G750JX for about SGD 990.
He said in his listing that if you want to upgrade the RAM from 8gb to 16 gb, you gotta pay an additional SGD 100. So I started talking to him a bit and asked if I could get it for SGD 1050. His respond?
“You seem like a sincere guy, tell you what, I’ll let you have it with the upgrade for SGD 1000”.
That made my day lol! Then, I noticed that he also offers MS Office 2016 for an additional 50 bucks and I thought since he is so nice, perhaps I could just pay for his service to support him since I’m gonna be getting it in future anyway.
I told him I’d like to get the MS Office pack and pay him $50 more. He told me in return-
“Don’t worry, I will include that inside the $1k package”.
LOL certainly wasn’t expecting that! Told him I’d buy him coffee if I see him tomorrow hahaha but he apparently has a meeting so he got his friend to meet with me instead at his shop.
The guy’s rep on the listing site is really good so I believe there’s nothing shady in this deal. So yeah, tomorrow I’ll be home with a new system and I will look to selling my MBP away. Let’s hope we get a smooth transaction with it all 😀
