Life without the internet is not like the end of the world.
We can call our friend and head out together, just like in the past.
Being back to dino world is not a bad thing at all. It only teaches us one thing to remember, be glad what you have.
Last week, Singapore had experienced a terrible internet shut down by the biggest Telco. Alright, it is mainly the internet that is affected, so on the good side, we still can communicate and check out information via 3G and 4G.
I saw a lot of people complaining on the Facebook as if their life is ruin!
I shall be fair.
I pity those who need the internet for business, but not those who need it for social media feed, gaming and surfing.
Why not everyone just leaves their computer aside and head down to town or park to meet up with friends? How long have that been?
For those who do not know and never had this feeling before, this is a good experience.
We, the generation of the 80s – 90s do not have the damn unlimited internet data you are using now.
There is a cap of data we can use per month and the charges are not cheap!
When the data max out, we chose to shut down the computer and contact each other via SMS or phone call.
For those who are richer, they have the luxury of owning the unlimited data per month.
Will no internet kill you?
No! Of course not!
Didn’t we sleep, eat or exercising without the usage of internet? Get used to it and stop been a walking head down walkers.
We can compensate the loss of usage today.
We must live the day happily and stop being a whiner who kept on complaining. It will not help and it will never solve the damn problem because there is nothing you can do to help revive the connection.
However, it is a good lesson for all.
Time to learn the life without the internet.
Get buddies around for a meetup, doing exercising and explore around. Do not just sit in front of the computer for gaming and social media feed. For those in business, it is tough. But life goes on, wait for connection and apologize, or seek help with temporary internet solution (Hi Card).
Maybe competitors should start thinking of this solution if either one faced the same situation again.
It is lucky that only one telco is affected and not the entire island.
