When I was in Malacca,I brought my laptop with me.So I could check emails and update Facebook on time.However,the hotel I stayed is without free usage of WIFI.I had to use my Google Nexus One as a modem connecting to my laptop to surf internet through DiGi’s network.
DiGi has a wide coverage of EDGE,the 2.75G network which is able to provide the downlink speed up to 144Kbps in my experience.However,it could not be suitable to load most websites fast because nowadays those fancy pages always embed with flash and pictures where the size is easily over 1MBytes,meaning that I have to wait at least 10 seconds for each page.I can’t imagine how I could watch a YouTube video or play some Facebook games by using such a wireless service.
I hope when I visit Malacca next time,I could enjoy 3G connection there.Do you hear me,DiGi?
I joined the company trip of my wife to Malacca for the past weekend.That’s the first time to be there and I found that Malacca is really a city where all have ancient feelings.
My wife and I like to visit Jonker Walk(Jalan Hang Jebat,see the map below).In fact,we went there 3 times in 2 days.I would say that the view there day and night is totally different.At the daytime,the street is quiet,but there are still some souvenir shops and restaurants opening,including the very famous ‘chicken rice ball’;at night,all street stalls start the business along the street and the linked area.Locals and foreigners can always get their fun somewhere.
