No Internet Or Netbook???

OH dear... something happened...

No Internet connection for the next 7 days?? Are you joking?? That was the first question I asked my heroes when they went to TM Net today to change to a new Streamyx package.

I wonder how many of you know about this student offer? TM Net is offering a free netbook to all students (university or college level) if subscribed under their name and the rates are cheaper than what I was subscribing before...

This afternoon both the "heroes" went to TM to submit the application, never realizing that there would be no connection for the next SEVEN days!

But many many thanks to Elin for her BIG sacrifice for allowing me to use her Broadband for the next 7 nights till our streamyx is back functioning....

No Internet means no oxygen... no oxygen means a Nightmare! :p

  19. Yeap, TM boleh! The last time we moved to where we are now, it took more than 7 working days to get the connection back.

    My response was exactly like you and what made me boiling mad was they told me to apply for a new subscription should I want to have my line back in 3 days or was it 2 days but that must be under different name. I was like... What???? Grrrrrrr...

  21. hmmmmm your office workplace has internet right? so technically you are online for 8-9 hours already. Then why at night need more internet? When I was renovating my house, I had no internet for 1 month plus. I guess different priorities lo. btw, dont make it like an Idol..otherwise your jealous God will be very jealous.
