The Curious Days Before Mobile Phones
- Jude Lim

There was a time not too long ago where telephones were all wired to the wall. No text messages, no internet, no social media and no smartphones for instant information and entertainment, and the only way people were connected to the outside world were through traditional mediums such as watching the news, reading the papers, and talking to people. Yes, making eye contact, smiling, and talking to people for the fun of it. Oh how the world has changed and how we have all changed in the process. Posing a simple question, “Has technology made us forget how to stop and smell the roses?”, Jude shares what it was like growing up in a world without mobile phones where even the simplest task of meeting a friend for coffee in a crowded public place took extensive planning and commitment where your word was your bond.
