Should I take a Dopod 838 or Sony Dream System or Ipod & Bose Sound Dock?

Filed under: Cool, Daren, DEETEE, MandarinOriental — delephant @ 8:24 am

Its the best time of the year at Mandarin Oriental.

Since I’ve joined the hotel, its always amazing how the hotel rewards the department heads at the end of the year with a Year End Gift.

Its always a gadget of some kind, and this year its just the same. Previously, we never got a choice, each person just receives a present and YAY .. its always a good pressie for the year end.

But starting two years ago, the management gave an option for us to choose.

So now i am stuck in a dilemma, cos i have three fantastic gifts to choose from. HELP ME!

What do you think i should go for?

1. Dopod 838pro

2. Ipod 80Gb + Bose Sound Dock

3. Sony DVD Dream System (DAV FX900W) Home Theatre System

What do you guys think? Help give some suggestions. I was asking Maju Family – Daniel the Gadgetier, and he’s proposing No.2. Any of u have any of the above and can give some pros & cons.

1. Dopod 838 Pro

2. Ipod 80GB and BOSE Sound Dock

3. Sony DVD Dream System (DAV FX900W)

  1. wah, so lucky la you..i still remember last year you got a new phone and was asking who wanted to buy from you right !!..

    i dont own any of those 3 stuffs u mentioned, and im not a gadget person, but my opinion is, get the one which you will always use…

    just for illustration..i would rather go for a beemer which i can drive to anywhere i like daily instead of getting a ‘ felali’ (ferrari) which probably can only sit nicely in the porch..(too sayang to drive a ferrari around)

  4. i’d check how much each of the option cost and resell value.

    then sell it and get something i really wanted ;p

    i’d personally go for Dopod 838 Pro :p

  5. Hey Pretenders…

    The Dopod was something i always wanted. And this is the Pro version. its so so so cool!

    Was talking with Alex earlier, and i guess its quite true to say that the Dopod would be more selfish, cos its a gift for me. Whereas the Ipod and Home Theatre would benefit the family.

    Then also was speaking with Cason, and he was commenting that if i take the Dopod, yes its canggih, yes its cool, but its a temporary canggihness only. Cos handphones go out of style so soon.

    BIG SIGH!!! Pray for me .. i need Wisdom!! Arrghh!

  7. Guess what?
    Just found out that my GM reads my blog! Oh WOW!!

    Anyway .. he reminded me that i didnt tell you guys what we finally chose.

    Yups… it was a decision for the family.

    What we DID NOT choose.
    1. DOPOD 838 Pro. Really wanted this. Its a really cool phone. And i love cool gadgets! But knowing the lifespan of phones, in 6 months this will be an antique.

    2. IPOD and Bose SoundDock. Would have loved to take this too. I always wanted a medium to store all our worship songs. So as a worship leader to carry and listen to any song and type of worship genre. And the best part to have a Sound Dock to plug it in.. would be fantastic.

    We chose the Sony Home Theatre System. For the simple reason that we do not have one at home. And that this would benefit the family, the lifespan of this item will be longer … perhaps a few years …… or forever! 🙂 hehe

    So for all u rich people out there reading my blog. If you feel kind and generous, you can always gimme a Christmas present … a Dopod 838 or an IPOD! 🙂 hehe
