I thought I could move back to wordpress for a couple of reasons, but, meh.. moving back to tumblr. See ya there! 😉

Berjauhan begini, whenever I miss her, I’ll just slather on some tiger balm and the smell will remind me of her. Dia sukaaaa minyak rimaaauu!! ^_^
“I’m trying really, really hard to be authentic. Sometimes I’m successful, but other times I overthink it and a lot of bullshit comes out.”
I love the hair color!
Okay so the kindle reached upon 5 days of DHL express service from Oregon. Surprisingly I can comprehend more of the books than the usual paperbacks. Should’ve gotten this earlier to complete my Goodreads challenge. This is good since it’ll mean that I’ll read more, that also means I get to escape once in a while out of this bored weeknights of mine.
So about the package. It came in in a top-slanted box that slides to reveal the kindle. In there sits the paperwhite, a little card of introduction, and a charger cable. The cable is as similar as any of the entry level android phones, so I saved this one and shared my Lenovo’s cable. This kindle charges over the laptop too, so there is no need to buy a separate power adapter. I use my iPhone’s adapter.
Luckily I unboxed this in a separate room, away from prying eyes. Silly me, when I got the kindle, it has the instruction on the screen on how to power it on. I thought that screen was a stick on, and I tried to peel it out just like the stick that you probably have when you buy that little picture frame. Right. Double slap on my forehead. That’s the result of being too much on other gadgets with no e-ink that can really fool you.
Talking about e-ink display, yes it does resemble paperback, just that there’s a slight (could be dismissed) reflection under fluorescent lamps. Minor thing. I do love this device.
The kindle has a rubbery feel on the back case, this is good since you don’t want to accidentally drop this device on your face when you’re getting sleepier while reading in bed. But I think I need a case with an auto wake feature to avoid overusing the on/off button. I heard OMOTON paperwhite case is the best and won’t add bulk to your paperwhite. Gonna try it out if I can find the stock here.
Reading experience-wise, love every bit, but I’m still in the stage of being very careful of holding and putting the kindle nicely fret that it’ll gather dusts or leave marks and what not. Typical first time reaction. I’m sure I’ll be just throwing it in and out of my handbag in no time. ^_^
Btw, I’m glad that I’ve waited for the 2nd generation to come, since there’s an obvious difference in terms of the darkness of the fonts. The rest of the package is more or less similar, with a couple of aesthetics upgrades, which is very well welcomed.
