Xpax BBM

If you have a BB, then you would already be addicted to the wonders of BBM.

If you don't, let me tell you about it. :D

BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM) is an instant messaging app used on BlackBerry® smartphones. It has a chat style layout and unlimited characters making BBM easy to share with all your friends and family.

         {Some of the features of BBM}

        •Safe & sound 
             Enjoy chatting in a totally safe & secure environment.
        •Share it all
             Share photos, videos and more between families & friends.
        •Show off your music
             Let everyone see what music you’re playing on your Blackberry.
        •Know it’s delivered
             Get real-time notifications for your delivered & read messages.
             Chat and get instant replies with its speediness.
        •Scan me, PIN me!
             Scan barcodes & share PINs to easily add contacts.
        •Be the ultimate chatter
             Chat with up to 300 of your friends & family at once.
        •Express yourself
             Update your status and choose your BBM display photo.

Allow me to illustrate, this is what it would be like if I had BBM and could talk to my other half who is halfway across the world:
I can be as random as I want to be. :D :D :D

However, this is my reality:
Super kiamsiap, must squeeze everything into one sms because one international sms costs me RM0.50. MMS lagi die, RM1.50 per MMS. LDR is expensive stuff. :C

For that price (RM0.50) I can talk to Em and other friends on BBM for the WHOLE DAY. And send files and photos etc etc! What am I rambling about? Xpax BBM!

 Xpax BBM allows you to BBM for only 50sen (RM0.50) a day. Chat to your friends and family, share files and photos and keep in touch with your friends and family. See what I mean? Same price as ONE international sms. T_T

BB Curve 9300


When I first heard about Blackberry it was THE mobile device for executives/working ppl/OL/you get the drill. But in recent years it's become the IN thing with the youth/yuppies/social media junkies.

Not wanting to be left behind... I considered getting myself one especially since most of my friends have one. The power of peer pressure. Egads. (I blame Shalom, Euveng, Sel, Laura, Kaelynn, Renee, Sandra...just to name a few. haha.) What to do, you'll feel left out too when you go for yum cha sessions and everyone is BBM-ing. And I have ppl like Euveng who complain about how slow I reply emails...I dun have push email k? T_T

So first on my list was the BB Bold 9700.
Cos it looks sexy and comes in white. Yes I'm shallow that way. But the price tag was a total turn off, I'm a poor student on a JPA scholarship...all I can afford is economy rice once every few days (stop calling my bluff!).

On a serious note *cough*, it's true that the almost RM2k price tag, or RM1.5k-ish price with contract just couldn't fit into my budget. And my parents would give me hell for spending my savings on something like this. Trust me, telling them this will help me facebook/tweet/instant message/email friends better is NOT a good argument.

So, next cheaper alternative would be the BB Curve 8520.

Cute and budget-wise not so heart-attack inducing. Yay! But 3G?!?!? Even my current LG Lollipop has 3G! So yeah, plans to get one was placed on the back burner. sigh.

And then! Lo and behold, Celcom introduces the *Brand spanking NEW* BB Curve 9300!
*Be still my trembling heart*

What's so special about it? 3G yo! The BlackBerry® Curve™ 3G 9300 is the first 3G Curve handset and is a straight upgrade to the BlackBerry Curve 8520. Nuff' said! :D

Too bad I spend a chunk of my savings on an overseas trip later this year. Have to attend a conference so there goes my savings. :C Time to save up again if I wanna get this BB. *sob sob*

Now the ultimate question...does it come in white?
