【HongKong|香港】Prepaid SIM Card|本地储值卡

September 13, 2013, Friday
Back to my HK travelogue, don't know why...but just feel like want to continue writing this, I always tell myself not to write same kind of topic stuffs in a week!! 
********************************************************************************
我的香港游记回来了,其实想要慢慢写。。。其实我都尽量在一个星期内不要写同样一个话题,这样比较不会那么闷!!


Ever since my experience in the year before, when I went with my third older sister, her husband and her husband's younger sister!! He already knows we've to get this while we're there in HK!! Since I used this before and I'm very happy with its data internet speed, so I tended to get a prepaid sim card first before I start my journey!!!
********************************************************************************
回顾我前一年的时候,三姐夫一到港的时候就说要去7仔买电话卡,那时候我也是有买,它的网速很快,不会很贵,去旅行最重要的就是要打卡(自认为),所以我是很希望去到哪里哪里都一定要打卡一下!!

Settle down my language beside my bed, I went down to the lobby to ask the workers there about where's the nearest 7-eleven around for me to get the prepaid sim card!! He's not just telling me, he even gimme their name which has a map at the back to show me where's the nearest 7-eleven!!

And here I am at the 7-eleven, I asked the counter staff what's the different between this blue and the red one, he said nothing much different...Umm, so like nothing much different, better get the cheapest one, right???

While traveling, the first thing I've to do is to get a sim card asap, is not just about check-in places and call back home, sometimes it became very helpful when you need some instant internet to browse some info while you're outside!! And of course last but not least is to use it as GPS, even our phone has the GPS function, but it still need data to get the directions!! Nonetheless, don't forget to keep tracking on the battery, as you don't wish to have a phone and have the data but without the battery, right?! =]
********************************************************************************
所以放好行李,就到柜台问最近的7仔在哪里。。。我前年买的是蓝色的(那时候我们也不知道怎么分,而那时候那里只有蓝色的卖所以我们就各自买了蓝色的$60)这次我自己一个人,我问店员两个有什么分别,他说没有什么分别。。。假如没有什么,我就买$48那个好了!

其实一到步要得到电话卡除了方便可以打卡及报平安之外,还可以上网查资料还有就是利用GPS找路,虽然说手机有自己的GPS定位系统,即使没有开data都可以知道自己在那里,但说怎样至少要有一样东西可以带你走的还要好吧???   以前旅行带地图,现在带手机,方便至于也不会因为地图每次开折开折的关系,用了一两天就变成破破烂烂!   但重点虽然如此,用手机的时候也要无时无刻注意电池有没有耗尽,不然即使有手机有data也无用最后还是回归去看地图哦!=]

  1. yeah, when I was in HK I also get myself a prepaid SIM card (the "space" card they call it).. actually not expensive at all, but really convenient to have one especially when need to use Internet.. nowadays voice or SMS is not primary but the data, because once you have data then can also make calls and message, agree?
