Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Dialing International Hello! iTalkWhoa

5.21.2010

real life mini love story

If there's a will, there's a way, so we are told. Indeed, we are blessed to have such encouraging words especially when we feel frustrated because we cannot find a way to solve a problem. Now, I am writing this piece of article on behalf of TM iTalk Whoa! from a true experience as told by my mum.

My mum flew in from Melbourne more than a month ago. The very next day, she went to the nearby shops trying to buy an international calling card so she can let her American boyfriend (yes, her boyfriend!) knows that she has arrived safely in Malaysia. But alas, none of the shop has the international card. Either they were sold out or they don't know what she was talking about. She was so frustrated! However, instead they said they have iTalk card. Now, what in the world was that?? Does the 'I' stand for international? Well, she was not going to risk her RM30 on one just incase. Instead, she called me up and I happened to be at One Utama Shopping Complex. She asked me to get her an international calling card and to text her the pin number as well as the centre call number. Not a problem. Unfortunately, all the shops I went to were saying the same thing as the above. Only iTalk card. Oh well, iTalk is better than getting a lecture from my mum. I then text her the necessary details.



"long distance relationship"




My mum was excited. At last, she could call her boyfriend. Well, the excitement didn't last long because she had trouble getting the number through. Good thing she is quite smart. She called up the TM operator and got them to solve her problem. Well, the rest is history and I didn't hear from her for a week.

One day, she called me up and said, “Tammy, there must be an even cheaper method of calling overseas such as a VOIP" – voice over the internet protocol – which she was using in Australia. She was in luck for right about this time, I was given the task of introducing to readers the wonderful world of TM iTalk Whoa. So, I told her about the iTalk Whoa which I briefly read up. She didn't waste time but immediately went to the cyber cafe to google up TM iTalk Whoa. Next thing, she called me up to buy for her a wireless modem so she can have access to WiFi in the comfort and privacy of her own bedroom.

She went to the website and created an account, bought some credits to use and ever since then she had been daily keeping in touch with her friends in United States and Australia. Not only that, she even get the rest of her children to chip in to buy her a lap top for mother's day present (now, this was in March, mother's day was still more than a month away!) because she said that way she can call up anyone anywhere anytime from where ever she is. Now, this is my mum. For her, she sure applies the famous quote “If there's a will, there's ...”.
