embark backpack - this will be my constant companion. my nephew originally got one two months ago and i told him i will get one. it has so many compartments that i don't think i'll use most of it. as long as i have my laptop for work and a few change clothes, i should be fine.
nikon coolpix camera - i prefer the smaller version but for the price i paid for this one, i don't mind. it's very light-weight and did i say it's very cheap.
i should be set..........for now.
on a different note, i got in the mail yesterday the official overseas ballot - yes, i am dual citizen. i applied for it two years ago. in any case, i'm not sure if i really want to even submit this. i know it's my duty to vote but it would be unfair to the general population of the country i don't reside. out of the 33 names listed, only 4-5 names ring a bell. even those names, i don't even know their track record as a politician.
