Over the weekend, the same day we celebrated Sarah's birthday, there were thunderstorms in Coventry. Mid-afternoon, there was a particularly loud crack of thunder and it sounded really near. Needless to say, Sarah and Amar were pale and scared!
Unfortunately, the lightning destroyed two of our precious electronics: the DVD player I bought "for Puan Mama Sarah" and also my surround sound hi-fi system. One of Sarah's favourite DVDs (Disney's "The Wild") was trapped in the DVD player which prompted this infiltrate, destroy and rescue operation.
The famous song goes, "Patah tumbuh, hilang berganti" ...
- Time to invest on those Belkin Surge Protectors.
- Only joking about the Dolby Digital HD Plus system - I don't think I'll go for another surround sound system for a while.
- I'm currently using the old Playstation2 as our primary DVD player.
- A new DVD player would cost around £22.
- Probably time to get those Upscaling DVD player eh?
- That was also just a joke.
- I'm starting to get used to some of the nuances of the 400D, and I'm also starting to love the new camera.
- No one was hurt during the dissection of the DVD player (thank god!)
