Couldn’t log on to the internet at my Oasis.

Since I’m still a paying customer of their outdoor wireless surf, I decided to call the Singnet helpdesk to get them to fix the problem.

After telling the tech support that I couldn’t log into their outdoor wireless surf, he asked me to check some setting on my laptop. I asked if he need to know my location first, he say no need. So ok, I followed the instructions, he couldn’t find anything wrong.

On the line for 15 minutes and he still couldn’t find anything wrong with my setting. Then the tech support guy asked me to reset my laptop. That is when I decided that I had enough. I asked if he ever considered that it could be their network problem, but he insist there wasn’t any report of network failure.

Then I told him it also couldn’t be my laptop because I log in to another network to get the telephone number to the helpdesk. That is when he decided he need my location.

Told him my location and he did a check and said that his system shows that the network is working.

Seeing this is going nowhere, I told him that his tracking system have error and hang up the phone. Useless anyway. There is nothing that guy can do.

I’ll just stick to the slower, unstable but free network. Perhaps I should consider canceling my outdoor wireless surf with Singnet. After all, the wireless@sg is coming soon right?

(Wireless@sg suppose to start from 1st Dec. But I’ve been roaming all over the place and still can’t find it. Maybe still have some problem.)

Singapore is playing host to IMF meeting this year. Quite a big hoo-ah event. The govt really going all out to impress the delegates from around the world. OK, there are a bit of inconvenience. Esp the road closure. Its going to be a big pain in the ass for those who drive to Suntec area.

But the IMF meeting does have a lot of advantages to Singaporeans. It creates jobs. It attracts 16000 delegates from around the world to Singapore to eat, drink and shop.

And because of the IMF meeting, some roads have been smoothen. Esp the expressway between Changi Airport to Suntec. Its the road that all the delegates need to use. And extra effort has been made for the past few months to ensure the roads in tip top condition. Try driving along ECP this few days if you are free. I did that yesterday and was surprised that the whole road look so new. As if it is a new expressway. They also repainted the flyovers and CTE tunnel. The whole place look so new now.

And if you are around suntec area, remember to go to the overhead bridge between Suntec and Citylink. They planted a lot of flowers there. Never in my life have I seen so much flowers along the roads of Singapore. Never. Its nice to have those flowers around. The place look alot nicer. There are sunflowers too. Wanted to take a picture, but I’m afraid the police patrolling nearby might question me.

Oh, I’m now at Millenia Walk using the free WIFI. Yeap. Its call Wireless@SG. This WIFI network will be free for all to use for the month of sept. Cool huh? Without the IMF meeting, we won’t have this at all.

I guess we are already seeing the benifits of the IMF meeting even before the meeting start. Thanks to the wayang-ness of our govt.

Hello, IMF and World Bank Delegates. Welcome to Singapore. Please come more often. Maybe every year.
Oh ya, I don’t mind smiling for free WIFI. 😀
