East And West

Went out with an old friend Li, known each other for about 10 years already. The oldest friend I have.

Went to Bishan Junction 8, as I walked around the train station waiting for Li, I witnessed a couple quarelling. There was an aluminium(?) wall covering the part of the station undergoing renovation, which the couple were leaning against and the guy banged his head twice. If he wanted to show his "macho-ness", all he achieved was making me chuckle. Yes, he looked very stupid.

We had dinner at Food Junction. Ordered 2 bentou set from the Japanese stall, teriyaki chicken with soft shell crab, miso soup and a cup of ice green tea. Knowing we had slightly more storage space in our tummies, I had Li order another plate of spaghetti with fish fillet to be shared between the both of us while I waited at the Japanese stall for our order.

One of the many benefits one enjoys for having a job, you can eat all you like without worrying about money.

I applied 5 days of leave from work. Starting on 7th all the way to the 11th November. The majority of the time will be spent on FFXI, haha, can’t help it. But I also have other plans like having my Singnet and M1 account to be transferred to my name now that I have Singapore PR (Permanent Resident) status. Before I had PR, my mum’s friend who is a Singaporean, helped sign up for my internet and mobile phone account for me under her name but billed to my home address.

It’s been 2 years, using Nokia 6610 (I’m using the white cover). I still love this phone but I’ve been wanting to give clamshell phones a try after watching Cloud use his Panasonic P900iV in FF7:AC [:D]. I actually tried to find out if I could import the actual phone used in that movie but it seems that the phone is no longer available and may have problems using it on local networks. ( ´Д`)

So yea, I’m looking at Nokia 6170 now. I think it’s around S$450. I’ll pass on those Sony-Ericsson phones I just can’t get used to the navigation. Or maybe I’m just too lazy to re-adapt. [XD]

A few months ago Singtel Mobile launched 3G service. But I haven’t seen anything 3G-related stuff happening on the streets yet. Maybe it was a failure… Yea… Singapore just begun 3G service many years after Japan did and "in" thing in Japan is now i-mode? And not forgetting the fat ugly 3G-capable phones they tried to sell. orz

Speaking of i-mode, Starhub has begun testing this service. I signed up to be a tester and got the offer. But I think I’ll not proceed with the testing because not one of the i-mode capable phones are Nokia, only 1 Samsung model has stock left and it just happens to be the suckiest of the 3 offered, I’m required to pay for the phone (at highly discounted prices) and subscribe a new line.

Haha, I can’t wait to knock off and go on my 1-week holiday.
