I won't deny it - I am nervous. I'm really excited yet nervous at the same time; I dont know what to expect when I'm over there. It might just be something beyond my wildest dreams - the poorest of the poor, the dirtiest of the dirty, the most beautiful of scenery, the coldest of cold.
All the extremes, basically. Yet it's so hard to imagine what to expect. But then again, it's not me vs the wild, or me vs India. Its me vs myself. All the fears of being alone; of being cold; of submitting to whats ahead.
But it will be a great experience. Am looking forward, definitely. India, here I come!!!

This is SO cool!
I have found my heaven. It's actually a cafe featured in 财金追击 tonight; I happened to watch it cos it was on tv.
Basically, it has wireless broadband internet throughout the cafe. Then theres this metal strip that runs throughout the cafe on the floor and all you have to do is plug your charger into the metal strip and voila! your laptop is being charged!! damn cooooool!!
and if you never bring charger, can get from the cafe! they hold stocks for various models and they serve great coffee!!
Its my heaven really. :) Must bring haughty pooh there one day, grab a designer cappucino and sit and surf the WHOLE day :P
The cafe? Geek Terminal @ Raffles Place!
