Wah lau eh*

There is nothing more aggravating than getting all psyched up to make the big iBook/iPod/iWork purchase, getting the relevant info from Adri (who was kind enough to help even though she wasn't working today), getting myself over to Apple Centre at Wheelock Place --- only to find out that they're all out of 12" iBooks and I have to wait at least a week for one.


I hope they get stock before the entire Chinese New Year weekend's over, or it's going to be very distracting to resume work and orientate myself Macwards and try to fill a 20GB iPod all at the same time.

* A polite version of wah lan eh, which literally translates from Hokkien as "Oh, penis", but is "used much the same way as "oh my goodness", "wow", or "damn!" (definition from the Coxford Singlish Dictionary).

Go to Macshop at Funan. They've got better service (don't know about the stock though...)

Order it online? It's cheaper with the educators' discount.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I already put down a deposit at Apple Centre and managed to snag the educational discount too. Now I just sit and wait for the magic phone call ...
