It's a common knowledge among Malaysians that life in Ipoh is quite slow paced as compared to bigger cities like Kuala Lumpur and Penang. I blame the internet speed.
It's been more than a week since I last came back to my hometown and to be honest, life here has been far from productive. You don't really have a choice though, because when your email inbox takes more than one minute to load, it kinda kills your motivation to do stuff. I can't apply for internships, look for jobs and even blog without spewing vulgarities every five seconds, which totally horrified my mum and that's part of the reason I gave up on trying.
In a world where speed is everything, having a WiFi connection that stops working when there's more than two computers accessing it is not very advantageous to you. But I can't complain though, because that's the way things are in Ipoh, where everything moves slowly, even the internet speed. I just hope my life isn't turned upside down when I go back to Singapore. I feel so handicapped right now.
