Short haul train no wifi.

I bought the SIM card from a Sg shop @ Clementi Mall (opp the POSB ATM), on the 3rd floor. 12GB plus 3000min talk time n 3000 SMS (I think, can verify on qoo10.sg), paid S$33/-

Arrived at Heathrow Airport n checked out those sold via the vending machine. Same specs 30pounds.
Didn't know can get SIM Card for European countries. Cld hv done tt if we knew before our last trip. Thanks for sharing. Will check it out as planning a trip to Denmark & Switzerland. Hope kids can come along.

Qoo10.sg has other Sg shops selling overseas SIM card. Elder boy has bought for his Korea n Germany trips in the past. I was also clueless until he told me about these options as hubby has always been buying SIM cards on his travels in the destination country. I thought can only buy in the destination country.

You will never stop worrying about your kids, no matter how old they are. How involved you are in their lives depends very much on yourself, them, and their willingness to let you "interfere". Some parents wean themselves off earlier than A levels, and some still try to handhold when their kids are in university or beyond. Some kids will allow it, and some will refuse. I have a girl in university here who is still quite dependent and needs guidance, even though I'd love to be totally hands-off. And I have a younger one who's now beyond my reach, and we are both revelling in it!

I believe the greatest gift we can give our child is space to make decisions, to bear the consequence of lousy decision and to make better decision thereafter. The giving of this gift is an ongoing process, depending on the recipient’s readiness.
