This is the little one which works like magic! This is essential for Wifi starved Singaporeans who can’t live without Wifi / 3G / LTE. Essential for individuals who subconsciously click on the email, Whatsapp, Safari, and Google Map icons when in overseas! I am guilty of that! It is worst if you are stuck in a land where buying a data SIM card is impossible and renting a mobile phone is exorbitantly priced. Using data roaming is way out of question. It will be a total nightmare if you realized that your hotel do not provide free internet or worst still, provides free internet but via Lan cable! You will be staring at the Lan cable hoping that somehow you can plug it into yourself and cross your fingers and use your body to transmit Wifi. Haha. Ok this is a lame joke and not too funny. This is what age does to you. You become lame. Gosh.
Found it in Challenger and it is not really that expensive.
Moving on, this little one will save your day and let you indulge a little whenever you are in your hotel room! This little one is powered via a power point and does not require any battery. It is simply a matter of plugging the Lan cable into this like you would into your computer. Do note that at times, even though you are “connected” into the Wifi, you need to go to your Internet Explorer and sign into the hotel webpage or connect via the hotel webpage.
Japanese Strawberry is the best in the world. Much better than Korean Strawberry and surely beat those sourish ones from US and Australia. It is the best! Even though strawberries are available almost all year round in Japan, it is in abundance and the nicest in Spring. If you do not know, there are also various brands of Japanese strawberry and the best and the most famous Japanese strawberries are the Amao (pronounce as Ah-ma-O). They are almost like the Champagne of all sparkling wine and look for this packaging or this words if you are grabbing some strawberries in Japan! Yums.
Let me continue with the post of Shimokitazawa, Tokyo with some pictures of the Vintage / Zakka shops I saw! Oh, I miss that place already!

Spotted a leather shop with the master at work on a small shop at the second level! So look up at the stores on level two too! You never know what you can find!

In a few weeks time, Lunar New Year will be here! Together with a few of my colleagues we head over to The Verge (formally Tekka Mall) to pick up some affordable plastic flowers and Lunar New Year decor for The Frontline. It is also a good place to buy plastic flowers for weddings and other decorative use! There are also shops which sell party needs. We had fun picking some flowers and carting home random decorative items.
He is flying off to France tonight for a week! I’ll have a lot of free time to do what I do best! Laze around, blog, hook on cable TV, read magazines and books, and do housework when I like it. Haha
