Skype video call is one of the best way to communicate with my wife and girl. Technology really helps a lot in getting in touch with love ones. I just can't stand the thought of the old days when Internet is unavailable and people get to leave their family to work. I already find it damn hard to cope (even with phone calls and skype video conference). I really feel lucky and actually much contended that I was born in this era. Kudos to our forefathers who left China (and their family) and came to Singapore to work and settle. My current situation is nothing compared to their hardship they faced and their longing of returning to their home town.
