We knew roaming charges could get really steep but we weren’t ready when it comes to a country not so commonly visited, unless work related. Uncommon definitely means extra money. Yes, we were aware of the charges by the local provider, but the charges by the visited country is the vague one.
A 3 minute call costs more than RM100 and a 13 minutes call is more than RM400. Madness! I could very much use the money for at least 2 pairs of shoes!
But because of my condition at that time, Mr. Hubs had no choice but to call several times to check. Until I am a bit stabilized, we resorted to skype calls to his hotel room (since his hotel room had no free internet access), and kept to only text messages during the day when he’s working.
Come to think of it, I’d rather pay a little bit of a bomb, with known fact one is within reach at anytime. At least until a certain limit I can afford lah, of course. Also, I’d rather not mention the total damage done. Not just 2, I could actually get __ pairs!! (feel free to fill in the blank)
Bunyi macam nak sedapkan hati sendiri tak? *sigh*
