In the past year, I’ve been losing my memory! Or rather been a bit too careless. There have been many instances where I left my wallet at home, resulting me driving around illegally without license, in addition to not having cash at all! This is really bad – serious.
Yesterday – I went out for brunch/lunch together with the rest of my family – thank god for the not so clear photo taken by the waiter. Hehe. I usually don’t like to have my photo taken in public, but I guess it is what it is:)
After reaching Empire Shopping Gallery, I realised that my wallet was not with me. Unlike previous incidences, I am pretty sure that I didn’t carry it. It’s probably is still in my motorcycle jacket (and it was). I guess no money. I keep on telling my sister that I have no money to pay for lunch, and one of them will need to pay for it 🙂
Anyway – to cut things short, whilst waiting for them to come (yes I was on time which is 11.30am), I decided to flip around and remembered my ex-colleague (Amran) told me about the cardless withdrawal with Maybank. So i decided to trigger this thru my Maybank2u app on my phone and transfer the monies. Maximum of 300 bucks, which is more than enough. Immediately, I receive SMS from them – it’s way faster than TAC!
The first SMS above I received, is a notification to yourself. Where I am supposed to pass the 6 digit code to your friend (which is in this case is myself!). The second SMS is a 16/17 digit code that the recipient receives 🙂
After getting the SMS-es, I headed over to ATM and withdraw the cash!
First is to put in the mobile number, followed up by the 16/17 digits D
Next, I put in the 6 digit code… wooo whoo.
The money magically appeared!
At the same time, I also received a notification of the cash has been withdrawn. Pretty good.
Seriously – I think as we move on, this is the way to go. In fact, why do I need an ATM card, why can’t I just use my phone to withdraw cash ALL THE TIME. It’s so easy – seriously 🙂
