A newly constructed walk is recently been opened along Sentosa link. Rajeevs’ and my family went to spend our evening over there. Sunset view was stunning… but some how my photographs did not came as I was expecting.
My first interaction with mobile phone was in 2002, when I first moved to Delhi. Connecting with home was needed and so I bought my first phone Motorola Talkabout (used). Outgoing was Rs. 6 per minute (SGD 0.15 approx) and incoming was Rs. 4. I used the same SIM for 4 years with different handsets, mostly Nokia.
Time has changed and now various service providers offering free outgoing in same network. Not sure how many folds the user-base has increased, guessing it will be more than 1 set per person now. At that time it was a gadget of show-off for many and necessity for few. Now its a part of daily life – social networking, music, games, photography, you just need a good handphone and entire world is in your hands… 🙂
