I know who you are when I hear my ringtone


Technology has in many ways made out lives more fun. Since I’m one of those people who don’t really care much for new gadgets; iPhone, Blackberry and what not, I usually settle for a really simple phone with as few functions as possible.

However, I’m intrigued with what mobile phones can do with personalized ringtones, especially those which are customized for individual caller identification. I find them practical and some can be hilarious.

Here are some great ringtones which I thought might go very well with the particular caller. Feel free to add on to them.

  1. Ka Ea, great piece, here's my suggestions Doctor - Doctor2 by Thompson Twins, stalking victim - Stick with U by Pussycat Dolls, someone who lives on Warwick Ave - Warwick Ave by Duffy, alcoholic reprobate friend - Rehab by Amy Winehouse, poker-playing friends - Poker Face by Lady Gaga


  2. Funny, you should compile and let us upload from your blog.

  3. Thanks, Anonymous for your suggestions.

    Doctor Doctor is a good one! Haven't heard of Warwich Avenue yet.

    Amy Winehouse's name itself should tell you something about who's calling. :D

  4. Ms. Kong Piang,

    I wish I can download all the songs here but with the internet connection here, it's not possible. Plus, I'm a bit concerned with copyright issues. Too bad...otherwise, I bet you just for this, it'll increase my traffic!
