It was my sister's birthday.
But lo and behold, one thing leads to another, and she ended up giving me a gift. (The next day I proceded to encase it lovingly in the red leather case!)
Oh, thank you, sister! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It's not only beautiful, but useful.
Turns out iTunes is also very easy to use. I have the feeling that the rest of the world are iTuned already except me up to a few days ago. Hahah. Better late than never.
I can listen to them whenever I'm cooking and cleaning, on the road, etc.
