a poor man's chair

It was a very hot day today, the temperature reached 42C in Penrith. Lucky it was not that hot here, but still a very hot day, even at late evening after window shopping.

In the afternoon, I could smell strong petrichor (yes, Rev. Dr. Wu Yi loves this word) on the way walking to Fantastic Furniture picking up the GiGi Chair which was initially scheduled to be ready by Monday, but they told me the GiGi Chair was double sold.

Here it is:

Sorry for the quick photo.

Laurent and I carried it home this afternoon under high temperature. (The petrichor was gone by the time we took the GiGi Chair out of the shop.) (to Don: remember? We don't have a car now! We are poor.)

This chair was under a huge discount, and the main reason I bought it was that I could sit on properly when facing guests as well as closer to the TV when I play my PlayStation 3 or Wii. Although the Bravia TV was just 52-inches, and 3.8 metres seem to be a nice distance for watching TV/movies. The distance seems to cause slight discomfort when there are quite a few small on-screen texts during game playing. (to Don: unlike you, I don't have perfect eye sight.)

Well, I couldn't afford a gaming chairs (which seem to be quite popular in the States). And I think a normal chair suits the room better. (to Don: Antony is poor.)

Hey Ant, nice looking chair and great value for the price. All you have to do now is tidy up the room for the new piece to have any effect!

Thank you Rev. Dr. Wu Yi. I believe the room is reasonably tidy.
The coffee table is the next item to be replaced. One of the legs is not steady.

With how much you tell me to clean my stuff, I am very surprised that your rooms aren't spotless.

When Rev. Dr. Wu Yi visited here, it was not in the best state. However, I do spray the tables and other surfaces on weekly basis.
