Shopping Weekend

The weekend is finally here and since we had nothing major planned or any errands to run, B and I decided to go shopping. We only had two very important things in mind, which we've been meaning to buy for quite some time, but only got around to doing so today.

The first thing on our list is a nice new lamp to brighten up our balcony in time for the Raya (Eid Mubarak) celebration that's coming up soon. I had checked out Farrey's the previous night and this site gave me some pretty good lamp ideas. Offering an endless array of lighting fixtures, lights, lamps and outdoor lighting in many different styles at the lowest prices,
Farrey's left me spoiled for choice. I found some really neat designs here but since I'm not that high-maintenance of a gal, I don't want anything too fancy like the quoizel lighting. Something simple like this sweet Capistrano lamp from the fine art lamps collection is perfect in my eyes!

Ever since the Dead Body Outside My Window incident, I've not gone out to the balcony. Each time I venture near, I find myself picturing what I witnessed that fateful night. I figured new lighting will help make my balcony more cheery and help me forget all the unfortunate incidents that had befallen us these last few months. Furthermore, with Raya coming up, it's also a good time for me to decorate our home, starting with a new lamp for our balcony! ;)

The next thing on our list was a PC game for B! He's been wanting to buy the new Command & Conquer 3, so after shopping for lighting, that was the main agenda on our list. We went to two different shopping centres before we finally located his game at One Utama.



When we got home, B was so excited to try out his new toy. It was nice to see him excited about something else besides football! He immediately installed the game, all geared to play the whole night long. Unfortunately, his excitement was short-lived, for even after following the installation instructions carefully, he could only play for about 5 minutes, before this error message below appeared. He reinstalled the game more than 10 times, but the same thing happened each time! :(



I wrote to the support site, asking for assistance but we've yet to hear from them. In the meantime, our friend G who dropped by after we got home, tried to figure out this error as well but to no avail. G even called up some of his gamer buddies to see if they know anything about this error, but nobody seems to know. So now, both B and I are very upset with his gaming predicament. We've already spent more than 2 hours researching the internet for some information and apparently, this is a normal error that seems to affect many people, who encountered the same error after installing this game. In terms of specifications, B's PC and video card meet the requirements for this game and yet this irritating error keeps on showing up! Any gamers out there that could shed some light on our little predicament? It's a pity we spent RM130 for this new game, only to have it sitting there unplayed so any helpful tip is much appreciated. Thanks peeps and I hope you're enjoying your weekend! :)
