Many people today have more than 1 cellphone for their everyday use. For instance, me. I have a PDA and a normal phone….a HP iPaq and also a Samsung basic phone will cameraphone, video recorder and other basic stuff-lah.
In case you think I am lan-si and want to show off, it cannot be further from the truth! Many people have double-cell phones these days including my sister, father, a good friend….even band members have two phones and two numbers.
The reason why I have 2 handphones is because I want to keep my office life far away from me when I am not working. Working from home is tough because there’s no line between work and personal life; therefore, if I use the same phone number, my life is all muddled up. Not as if it’s not with Internet and all…but still, at least I have drawn a line between the two (and more) lives that I live.
More importantly, both my handphones are completely different. One is a PDA where I record all the schedules, to-dos, kids’ tuition, shopping time, piano time, work time, cleaning time…etc. I am quite religious with that. Otherwise, there’s no time to do anything. I cannot go to sleep without reviewing what’s on the PDA. If not, I would be thinking and worrying about work and I would linger around on my computer, checking emails, logging in and out of Instant Messengers all night through. As it is, I sleep at ungodly hours…
What about you? How many handphones do you have? If you have more than one handphone, why?
