Cavalock and The Mac Factor

Made the first big purchase of the year with the 21.5 inch iMac. I seem to be making a habit outta lugging big, heavy gadgets on the train again. And now for better or worse, the apartment is entirely PC-free. A little extra space on the study table now that the big desktop CPU is gone.

Being in the creative/media industry, I been using Macs since day one. Now that doesn't me a Mac expert or anything close but I definitely do see the advantages of using one compared to a PC. But remember, I'm still a gamer so I would love to have a PC for gaming online with the guys. But again, these days I don't have much time for gaming and THE game that most of us are waiting for, Diablo 3, is going to be out on Mac as well. At this point, I just realized most normal people won't know what the hell I'm talking about....<^;^>

As you can see, I haven't forgotten bout my trusty MacBook. It's now my new placemat!

Just kidding! I still use it when I'm on the move or when I'm watching TV in the living room. You know, after all these years, I never knew the British Royal Family had anything to do with Japanese Royal Milk Tea until I saw that packaging. :P

While picking my iMac, I also had dinner at Tompopo. Decided to try the shabu shabu set this time instead of ramen or any fried stuff.

The strips of pork were really juicy and tender. Only prob was the pork came really frozen as in they were pretty much 'glued' or stuck together and tighter than a monkey's nuts. Maybe they should have given them more time to defrost. Ripping them apart kinda ruined the look if you know what I mean.

I'm a total Mac noob.

Aside from an Apple II clone way back in the 80s, I've never used a Mac of any sort.

Still can't get used to non-CRT displays. Hoping my 21 inch will last me a while longer.

Hey Cavalock! Thanks for the shout-out =)

The iMac certainly is pretty...

And maybe you should try doing shabu shabu at home on your own (if you haven't already)! Just need to buy the meat from the supermarket (you get a lot more for the same price as you would pay in a restaurant), a bottle of good sesame sauce, a big bowl, and boiling water... In fact you can get the meat real cheap at QB foods in Chin Bee Crescent... They supply a lot of the big supermarkets.
