One good thing about my purchase is that it came with a FREE Compact Canon PIXMA photo printer with FINE print head technology and auto fix function for improved image quality. Another printer to print our photos. It's a good thing that I won $100 from Juliana's contest so I just added it with my earnings from blogging. I feel good because I have 2 brand new computers that I bought from my earnings in blogging. The laptop and desktop are the fruits of my labor. Since blogging is my business, I need to have a good and faster computer, right? So blogging goes on... Below are some photos of my new PC.
And here is the photo of the Free printer that came with my PC. It's still in the box .

The hotel where we stayed had a free high speed internet service but I'm glad I didn't have to blog and all we did when we were back at the hotel after a long day was to rest, watch tv and eat. Oh, what a life! I was free from all the house chores for three days and I love it. Who wouldn't want to just relax, go sight-seeing and just eat and sleep afterwards? I just wish my hubby and I will go on vacation again so we'll have a good time. Oklahoma City is a beautiful place to visit with all their tourist attractions worth visiting. Let me post some pics taken at the hotel where we stayed.

My hubby enjoyed looking at the cowboy stuffs and guns and the statue of his favorite actor John Wayne which was made of copper. We both enjoyed touring the Prosperity Junction which brings back to life the circa 1900 Western cattle town at dusk where full size structures, including a bank, restaurant, stable, carriage, jail and church bring the experience to life. I used to see those places in the old western movies and while we were walking in that junction, it's like I experienced how it is to live in the past.
They have also the Children's Cowboy Corral and the kids who were there really had a good time. The place caters for the adults and the kids.
Being a gardening fanatic, I enjoyed the outdoor gardens with the nice landscape and fountains. The place was awesome. I could sit outside and relax by the water features and listen to the birds while being surrounded by such glorious colorful flowering plants. It was a gardener's dream!

Oh my, it was so beautiful inside the Crystal Bridge! Different varieties of tropical plants were there with all those beautiful and colorful flowers. The landscape was so beautiful too. I could stay there for long and just stare at the beauty of the surroundings. We climbed the top and walked across the bridge and went to to the other side. Though I was scared of heights, it didn't stop me and I just walked slowly while looking down at the view from the top. My hubby was busy taking video while walking and I was also busy clicking my digicam. Then when we were done feasting our eyes with the view, we went out and explore Myriad Botanical garden. The surroundings were beautiful, lawns and trees were green and neatly trimmed. Flowers and fountains were so captivating. What a view! I just love this place. Here are some photos taken there.

The Memorial and Museum are dedicated to educating visitors about the impact of violence, informing about events surrounding the bombing, and inspiring hope and healing through lessons learned by those affected. The museum occupied three floors and we went to see all those exhibits in all those floors. A lot of visitors were there too and there were some journalists from Florida. I've seen the photos and videos of the bombing and also the photos of those people who lost their lives. It was so tragic and I even felt chills while seeing those memorabilia of the said incident. This world is really full of chaos and bad people. I've seen the photo of the bomber and he was only 29 years old when he did that terrorism. What a waste of life and soul! He must be in hell paying now and will suffer torture there forever.

Well, our visit to Bricktown Canal is not complete if we won't ride the Water Taxi so hubby purchased tickets for both of us. It was a bit pricey for a short ride, $7.50 each but we were on vacation so we might as well enjoy and splurge. The tour guide took us around Bricktown Canal and gave us some bird's eye view of the things and places we passed by. I kept clicking my digicam and also I took some videos. Take a look.
I posted more pics and video in my other blog. Just click HERE to view more.
