I am currently in Gadget heaven. Prior to my trip to Hong Kong, I wrote about my Gadget wish list. All the wishes have been granted. Thanks to the Wan Chai electronic center which was a walking distance from our company’s Hong Kong office and the Hotel I stayed at.
To refresh everyone’s memories, these are the gadgets that I drooled over.
The HuaWei E8530 Portable Wifi, The Plantronics/Altec Lansing Backbeat 903, and the iPad.
I got all of these gadgets from one store. Apart from these gadgets, I also got a Zoom lens attachment for my Sony NEX 5. All in all, I spent a fortune on that shop. While I was buying these gadgets, the salesman noticed my bag. A D&G messenger type bag that I bought from Adora prior to the trip to Hong Kong. He admired the bag and asked me if it’s fake. I was surprised – at the question and I jokingly said, “I just spent a fortune on your store and you ask me if the bag is fake?” He realized that it was indeed an uncalled for question and profusely apologized. Note – I did not feel insulted because I know that it’s easy to assume fake goods in Hong Kong because they do get a lot from mainland China. I am however happy to report that the goods I bought from the store were all original.
