well, it's been a while.
got so busy,
no time to update this blog.
(used the free time to watch kdramas, of course)
i suddenly feel like sharing an experience.
i mean, there's a lot of these kind of stories
idk abt that b4 it happens to me
but my story is a bit different,
though the process is kind of the same.
well, it started in december 2013,
don't remember the exact date la..
i was on my way to meet my parents in port dickson.
stopped by times square,
hang out with my friends.
then, i took the monorail to kl sentral,
before continuing my journey to seremban by ktm.
it was obviously not a good day, i suppose?
a lot of things happen on that day..
i was taking the usual route from monorail to kl sentral.
suddenly, a guy approached me and offered a free sim card.
i will be referring the telecom company to 'A'
"adik, sekarang ni syarikat A tengah buat promosi.
kita bagi simkad free.. simkad ni macam cubaan la..
lepas ni kita nak buat produk baru. "
i was like, ok..so??
"dalam dia ada rm200 free..boleh guna selama seminggu.
tp adik yg kena pakai, xboleh bagi orang lain.."
so i thought, it was free.. there's no harm in that.
and usually, if u buy a new simcard,
it's obvious that they will be asking fr ur IC.
to register, i think?
so without any suspicion,
i just gave my IC when he asked me to.
and then, he went to photostat at one corner.
a lady then came to me.
asking for my information.
but not everything.
only my mother's name, my current phone number
and my signature. that's it, really!
suddenly, she said that I need to pay,
so i was like,
the guy said different things before..
why do i need to pay?
he said that it's free.
i also did ask a few times to him,
"betul ke free ni??"
well, i'm a stingy person when it comes to money.
unless it's food...
i'm not boasting here,
but if i go around and people ask for money,
i'd rather give the food in my bag than money.
it happens a lot everytime i hang out in kl.
i know life is tough, and though i can't help them with money,
at least they're not starving..hmmm..
back to the story,
since she insisted me to pay,
so i just said,
"xpelah kak.. saya xnak la..tadi kata xpayah bayar.
lagipun saya nak ke pd ni..takut x cukup duit.."
it's a white lie, but i need a reason not to pay..
she said, i already gave the IC,
and my signature.
so i can't back out like that.
she keep stopping me from walking away.
i was thinking to just run,
but since i already gave my IC,
let's just go for it.
i said to her,
"saya bagi rm10 je boleh? saya betul2 xde duit ni:"
guess i can be a good actress... haha!!
i was really convincing.
besides, it was a sunny day,
and they are working.. i feel pity for them,
so i paid.
i didn't use the simcard,
and it is still intact.
my note 2 need micro simcard,
can't even try to use it,
the size is different.
didn't have time to cut it, either.
about 2 weeks ago,
i got a message from B (current telecom company)
why would I change my telecom provider?
B is a good company..
and it's been years since I've been using the number.
so my dad called B customer service.
they said that my number is still in B.
the next day,
another message came,
and with that message,
i wasn't able to use my number.
no call in/out, texting is also impossible.
the phone just go, "emergency calls only"
i can only contact people by using free aps
that require internet,
wechat, whatsapp and viber.
so i went to B centre.
tried to change back my number from A to B.
after a week, my phone still go,
and then i just called B customer service.
but B said the problem lies with company A.
so I called A customer service,
he said that i must go to A centre,
and bring my a copy of my IC.
so I go there,
the lady said that I have debt with A,
so the request cannot be approved.
i did think of this possibility,
but didn't think that it would really happen to me.
i needed to pay about rm122,
if i want to keep the number.
and if i terminated the number,
maybe i'll pay less than that amount.
i left her and meet my abah..
he can solve this, i thought?
i mean, terminate??
whoa.. i've been using that number since long ago.
don't even remember since when,
and before i used the number,
my dad has been using it,
it's really an old number..
u said to terminate?
well, i cried of course.
sitting at the bench of the shopping mall.
people passing me would have thought,
"this girl must have broken up with her bf"
i mean, something like that la kowt?
i'm a crybaby so i would cry over these trivial things.
i really love that number, u know.
so my dad paid for me la..
and i got happy, lalala~
but before that, my dad asked her,
my daughter never use the simcard,
how come she has to pay for the bill?
she just said,
"oh, adik, u ada sign itu borang kan? itu borang
maknanya adik sudah setuju masuk postpaid"
something like that la..
and she said that i didn't ask enough questions
to the promoter who gave me the simcard.
i mean, they said that it's a NEW simcard,
with NEW number, and FREE...
what do i ask more?
i was supposed to share the story only.
but the emotion got involved.
making this post really long..haih.
these are the links of some people who got
found these recently..
