Survived A Day Without Both Handphones

12 hours to be exact, not 24.

My block's electricity supply was cut off at 8.45am this morning due to some wiring and installation of cables. I could not stand the heat and quickly zipped off to work.

In my hurry, I left both handphones at home.

I'm glad that for an sms-freak like me, I managed quite well without my phones initially. By afternoon, all I could think about was whether Cynthia had sms-ed me updates about Charmaine... and then when night fell, I could not wait any longer but to pack up and leave.

I'm not that much of a techie-survivor after all.

BTW my mainline is spoilt AGAIN!

It's the same old problem of people not being able to hear me when I could actually hear the caller very clearly. It's a recurring problem that would fix by itself miraculously. Hence during this period of time, I would not be picking up most calls. If I do pick up and you hear nothing on my side, it probably means that the hp hasn't fixed by itself yet or that I've thrown my hp away.

So for now, please sms me. Thanx!


Charmaine is in NUH for her 3rd chemo now.

Let's pray that everything would go smoothly for her.

Feisty Char needs bullets to fight!


  1. Dear Jolene,
    It has been such a long time since I read your blog. I broke down into tears reading about your goddaughter's situation. She is full of life and positivity!
    I have put the banner on my blog to raise funds for her.
    In addition, I have some toys and old puzzles which I hope you can pass to her and her brother. Let me know what I can do to help your friend.

  2. Raine,

    It's been a really long time since I last saw you! How have you been??? From your recent posts, it seems like you are back in SG? I haven't really had the chance to read everything. You staying for good or stopping over?

    I went to visit Charmaine just now. She was really hyper! She could walk around with all her drips hanging on the "bar with wheels" while the chemo drugs were dripping into her. Always very happy to see her being so feisty.

    Thanx for your kind offer. =)

    Actually the kids have quite a lot of toys from many generous gifters. The help that Cynthia needs is more of like having more time or more of herself to cope with everything. Hence it's quite tricky for me to answer what kinda help we need too. Nevertheless thank you for your concern.

    Hope to see you around more often!
