Monday Montage: Seeking Good Wifi Signals

Have you heard the math problem about the family of three that went to visit Singapore and had just one computer, two iPhones, and 2 bars on their wifi signal half of the time? It’s a tough one I know, but the answer is one blog writer banging her head against the wall 25 times as she tried to write said blog on her iPhone yet again.
As you can tell, I am no mathematician, but I am getting better at writing my posts using my (outdated but much loved) iPhone 4. So, hooray for staying in a place that has little, to no internet connectivity and coming out from the experience having furthered my tech skills.
Singapore is quite interesting and has many things to do, which we have been doing and which I plan to write about for the next couple of weeks. So stay with me at least until I get back to the internet age and can fill your inbox, reader, or whatever with all my stories of Singapore… Please?!
Until then, here are my Monday Montage of pictures from this past week…

Look Mom! Swenson’s in Singapore has food as well as deserts! My mom and I had to change our girls day out a bit when we realized that we couldn’t eat lunch at Swenson’s in my post, Β A Grand Girls Day Out in Hua Hin.

I decided that I wanted to show what the mailboxes look like in each country we visit, these are what they look like in Singapore. Not too exciting are they?

I just thought that this was humorous. We were getting some food at the Chinatown Complex and this lady was standing in line having a rather loud conversation using her iPad as a phone. I know some people who use their iPad to make calls, but I have never seen anyone actually holding it up to their ear. It looked pretty uncomfortable.

20140217-142825.jpgThis is definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Singapore, I got to meet a fellow blogger and friend in person! Bronwyn (of Journeys of the Fabulist) as well as her two adorable children, met us for tea and delicious french toast. She and I had a chance to chat while Chad took the kids to ride on some rides in the mall. It was my first time ever meeting up with someone who I met through blogging, and it was wonderful. Chad, Z, and I all had a great time and Β B gave us some great recommendations for where to eat our lunch that day (more on that in a following post). Thanks Bronwyn, P, and T!

On that note, I have to say that is one of the reasons that I love blogging so much, there is a real possibility of getting to know people and forming friendships all over the world.

Until we meet again (and I have better WiFi), thanks again for reading and following!

  1. Oh my goodness, you have no idea how long it took me to find a post box the first time I looked for one in Singapore. I was told there was one around but kept walking right past it. That’s actually one of the fancy ones – some are just this dull sort of beige colour and really look for all the world like utility boxes. Happily, I’ve sorted that one out since πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the meet up, it was great!

  2. Thanks for sending photos and news despite technical problems.
    It is very appreciated. Loved the mailboxes. I am always curious how things are in different countries.

    • It’s funny because I find myself always looking for what is the same as back home (maybe it’s a comfort type thing), but sometimes I forget to look for the differences until they smack me in the face. πŸ™‚

  3. How great that you an Bronwyn got to spend time together! You both have great blogs. As far as the head banging in search I Wifi…I have permanent head dents from my quests while traveling. πŸ™‚

  4. Wifi can definitely be the bane of our travel as well. We both do online freelance work, so no wifi means no money for travel. We have had to cut out early from several places so far because the internet went down for extended periods of time. At least these last minute changes of plan keep us on our toes πŸ˜‰

  5. The iPad ‘calling’ is so silly, I have seen a few here too and just think to myself ‘why?’. So cool you met up with Bronwyn, that is awesome…got to love the bloggersphere good luck with wifi, how frustrating.
