Monday morning, and DiGiRman went MIA

Category : travel

DiGiRman went MIA on Monday. We were to buy a server but only got to Sim Lim Square in the afternoon.

I had left my handphone in KOY' car the previous day. I reached Crown Hotel @ Orchard (former Crown Prince) handphone-less, and called his room. No joy. Hmmm... hotel staff were uninterested and amazingly, were unable to let me use a phone to check my voicemail - I figured he might have tried calling me and left a message.

So I crossed the street to Paragon, failing to see any public phones, went to Delifrance and logged in to singnet. Signal was surprisingly weak for a paid network and GMail struggled to show.

Fired up Skype, saw Lekowala online, got him to call KOY, who dug up Aaron's US handphone number which was stored in my recent calls list. I skyped him but no joy. Lekowala confirmed likewise. Still through skype, CSCL and Ladybug called the hotel room at different times in an hour, but still no answer.

KOY drove by to drop my phone off. But I had run out of options, so left SMS and GMail messages that I was returning to campus.

Was DiGiRman in a melatonin-drugged sleep? Was he wandering Sim Lim Square in a hardware buying frenzy already? After all, wikipedia provided him location and photos!

Turned out the reason was simply this. All that technology, but... So interesting. But we did lose valuable time.

Monday morning, he must have thought, and Otterman went MIA!
