external hard disk uncle 27th birthday Special because: carry data always with me high capacity shock-proof
Transcript for the answer:
Well, I have been given many gifts through my life, but one of the most precious and practical gifts I have ever received has been my portable hard disk. I received it from my uncle, I mean my mom’s brother, on my twenty‐seventh birthday which was about 3 months ago. I was kind of surprised to see what was inside the wrapping because I had actually thought he was going to give me a new t‐shirt or hat. You know, he had gone on a trip to Thailand a month before and I was expecting him to have bought something Asian for me. Anyway, this gift was very special for me and has been very helpful since then. I use it a lot to carry my data, such as films, music, text and other files from home to work and vice versa, and also on trips. Before that I had to burn my files to DVDs and you know, they’re really delicate and fragile when it comes to portability. Also, because of its super high capacity of about 500 gigabytes, I never run out of space! And there’s one more thing that makes it very precious for me and it’s that the device is completely shock proof! It has a plastic cover which protects it against damages in case I accidentally drop it. All in all, it’s been the best of my possessions after my laptop computer for the past 2‐3 months.
