Don't test my patience

I was at Maybank the other night, trying to bank in some money to a friend.

As usual, Maybank ATMs and Cash Deposit machines are always full with long queues (not sure about other places, but Taiping ones always pack with people). I personally do not have a MBB account so I cannot do any transactions online.

The man in front of me was already there when I arrived. I took a peep, he was going to bank in quite alot of RM 50 notes. Some notes couldn't go through and he kept on trying and trying. I stood behind him long enough but he just din't give up. Duh... uncle, din't you notice a queue behind? If the same notes couldn't go through means couldn't go through no matter how many times you try! Please be more considerate la!

The other Indian guy behind me also shaked head and switched lines. Finally, perhaps that man sensed my impatience and finished his business.

I know sometimes those machines are sensitive, I know the money is important to that someone, but please be considerate. Unless there's no one else behind you, otherwise, you might just need to think of other solutions. Hello, you do not own that machine alone!

*Sorry la, pregnant lady very impatient one!*

Have you encounter such situations?


  1. its ok, dont said preggy mama impatient lah, even normal people will also like that, worst is when u queue for so long, then finally ur turn, the fellow in front u already jammed up the machine and its out of service!!

    i nvr experienced like u lah, coz im their 'priority customer'(hahahaha), i can bank in thru the counter, no need to queue at all..and im their internet banking user too...

  2. Some people are like that... no sense of urgency at all and don't care about the queue behind them. Err, I've never deposited cash at the atm before and didn't know that the notes have to be put in 1 by 1... I thought u can just slot the whole stack in :p

  3. sometimes cannot blame also lah, the machines always want to reject some of the notes no matter how, very perpetual!! and sometimes you also get frustrated and cannot accept the fact that your notes is rejected right??

  4. Truly agree maybank deposit machine is really sucks....
    I also encounter tat d money cannot acceptable....
    As a very considerate person ahem ahem I bring more notes..must in case it doesn't go through.....
    Here in kl also d same.... Long queue.....

  5. I am quite impatient myself, so I guess I understand ur feelings. But sometimes I felt it's the machine's fault... maybe he should jus bank in later after the queue is over.

  6. Hayley,

    Ha ha, now you got an excuse to be impatient or even angry for every single thing, because you are pregnant.
    I know what it is like, some people are just inconsiderate and they think they owns the machine. Have you come across those who makes withdrawal for the whole family or office? You are behind him and you thought oh only one guy, but then he started taking one atm card after another and makes numerous withdrawal.. ahhhhggrh.. feel like telling to "Q' up again if he is making more than one transaction. but Im not pregnant so cannot lo. ha ha

  7. Oh dear, I hope the 'uncle' that you encountered was not my hubb :p .... He went to maybank earlier, tried to deposit some Rm40k into the machine. I think it took him 30 mins to complete the transaction, and I was at home (cursing and) waiting for dinner.

    Frankly, he was complaining that his customer handed him such large sum last minute. The bank was closed and he didn't want to carry huge cash overnight.

  8. Wyson, 'the fellow in front u already jammed up the machine and its out of service', I can understand how frust it is! (Luckily I never encounter such situation yet)

    ChloeRuoyi, yep bank in whole stack but certain notes will be rejected.

    SK, yes surely I'll get frustrated if my notes cannot be accepted, so I will walk away after a 1-2 tries and give way to other people.

    Simple Person, I'll do that too, bring more notes just in case.

    YT, yes totally agree! 看情况而办事!

    Johnnie, haha I encountered that before! Several ATM cards in one transactions...

    Yvonne, LOL luckily it wasn't your hubby I met :P
    RM 40K is a huge amount of money...

  9. Haha - now you're in that shoes of encounter with inconsiderate people but you also try to think in his "shoes" too...I think its good he got the "hint" without the need for u to say anything

    Dun mess with pregnant lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  10. Oh yes, I meet tons of inconsiderate people everyday. I hate queing up to do anything. People jump que, some stand so close to you that you can smell them breathing down your neck etc. etc. If I can avoid it, I do all my banking on line. When I never bank in cash in an ATM machine, I don't trust it. Those machine are not well maintained and if something goes wrong, the hassle of contending with making things write with the bank is frustrating. I know, I know, I feel you, pregnant ladies impatient so is this old grumpy Quay Po! hehe

  11. err..sometimes the bank machine is at fault for not accepting the notes. otherwise it would be a breeze to bank in cash. my hubby has encountered what the uncle experienced but still no choice but to stand and bank in because the bank is closed :(

  12. Robinson, LOL, like the last sentence :P

    Quay Po Cooks, ya I understand. But I'm just not interested in getting a MBB account, LOL.

    Barb, I can understand too. But I still think that he needs to think of other solutions if the queue is long....

  13. I think MBB is pack everywhere as JB here also same ==' tat's y I apply internet banking, go bank deposit once a month to cut down frustrated.

  14. Evelyn, well MBB sure has many supporters...

  15. Hi Hayley,

    I think that uncle is frustrated too when his money was rejected. Also maybe he need to send the right amount to another person. It could be his loan where, he needs to pay the exact amount.

    Be patient yeah?

  16. Willie, I thought of what you thought too.. But, pregnant lady is just impatient...

  17. Last time my incident was a lady holding 10 cheque and 1 cheque redeem 1 resit. Basically people deposit 5 cheque for 1 resit and she wanted to do it 1 cheque for 1 resit.

    Headache right? lol

    no worries, pregnant lady or non pregnant lady always dai sai 1. I got patience :P

  18. Hi Hayley, ya, he should have glanced back, and seeing a young lady in a family way, go to the cashier instead.
    Oh well.....
    You stay easy, have a nice day.

  19. 孕妇就是比较容易emo的,哈哈!但是你是对的,我也觉得这样的人应该考虑后面排队的人,respect其他人咯,如果钞票进不到,请试一次, 再多几次就先让别人吧。 我也遇过,没有怀孕时我都 pik ceh了啦!

  20. Kian Fai, LOL.. yaya, headache la this case..

    Lee, but it was night time and the bank is closed. But he should have glanced back at least.... ;)

    珊姑娘,就是咯。。每个人都在排队,每个人都需要bank in钱给对方嘛~

  21. I encountered it all the times because I go to bank almost every day. I never tried the same machine more than 3 times and if long queue, I would be even faster. Never like people to wait for me and I am in the waiting. Lol!

  22. I agree pregnant woman has mood swing easily. The uncle should let pregnant woman do the transaction first. Now, he kena scolded by pregnant woman in her blog already. hahahahah!

  23. Rose, same here. Never like people to wait too long for me either.

    Yan, haha! But I din't even remember that uncle's face already, LOL.

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
