Disconnected...

I have always heard how people are so connected to their handphone as well as email and the Internet. I don't think i was one of those folks, afterall i have often forgetfully left my handphone at home and the day still passes as usual...

I guess i was wrong. On the first day of reaching US, i realise i have missed out the electrical converter plug while packing. My laptop power is low and my handphone is out of battery. I have my chargers but without the plug i was totally disconnected! This means no email access no handphone access for the rest of my stay! I might be able to live without it but i just feel so insecure and detached...

The next morning i was up early and out at the streets trying to get one. It is harder than imagine. The Radioshack near the hotel do not carry it and that was a bad sign. I was basically combing the streets for the next 2 hours before i manage to get it at a small electronic shop around 3km away from my hotel. I was so relieve when i manage to get my hands on it and was like holding it tight in my hands for fear of losing it. I never imagine an electrical adaptor can bring me so much relieve!

So for you reader out there, how connected are you to your handphone, email and the Internet?

By the way, today is Thursday so Pitstop Cafe will be having its ice cream buffet. If you are "connected", do jio your friends and drop by Pitstop Cafe for a ice-creamly good time!

Ohhh... how I wish one fine day my phone just drop into the MRT track and got crushed totally by the train, and the telco needs 30 working days to get my SIM card back. Then I will have a lot of peace because my boss and colleagues will be "disconnected" from me. Friends can always contact me by emails.

Well, I better wake up, anyway it's friday, and I should feel fortunate as I don't need to travel 3 km just to get connected. 8-P
