Thank you HSBC! Thank you Osim!

A week after my birthday, I received a birthday card from HSBC Bank – Credit Card Centre . Along with the birthday card, they included a Osim gift voucher for redemption at any Osim Centre for a battery operated toothbrush.

(Manglish post coming up. Soliiiiiiiiiiiiiii.)

Usually, I will ignore their marketing gimmicks. You know la, they say it’s your birthday, no need to purchase anything to get free thing. But hor, where got such a big frog jumping on the street wan. Sekali you go, they will try to sell you this and that. Sai hei. Then one day, I read Sengkor magic post and thought, maybe I should give myself a chance. Anyway, this is electric toothbrush wor. Dem expensive 99. The most I kena lecture few minutes or few hours la.

Then hor…. the usual lazy busy me. Proscrascinate till last minute cos the voucher only valid for one month from the date of my birthday. So, yesterday I went and redeemed my gift. Ear plug all get ready liao.

Once I reach there, I pass them the voucher. That sales girl took them from me and ask for my HSBC credit card and I/C. Then hor, then hor, she ask me to take a seat. In my mind I know what she is up to. Trying to sell me something la. Expected ade. I smile at her and pretending to attend to my 2 monsters. She ask me to sit again saying the procedure will take sometimes cos they need to key in some data. Aiyah, then I ma sit down on their red red dei comfy sofa.

“Oh, this one is the new uPapa”.

Upon hearing that, she quickly walk over to me and ask,

“Miss, wan to try or not.”

Ma try la. Wah lao eh, the uPapa is like a Chinese Drum. Instead of massaging my back, I can imagine someone using a drumstick drumming on my back. Dizzy la wei, lidat. After pretending to be less interested in their product, I ask to try on their uZap. This one very good product but me, boh lui la.

Plus hor, Baby was a bit terrified to see my body shaking. Actually I also beh tahan. Dah lah my tummy so flabby, that uZap can shake it to the max! After a while listening to yeh sou story, I saw my gift ready on the counter liao. So I quickly walk over to claim it. The sales girl again ask,

“Miss, since this is your birthday, we are giving you 5% off the uZap. Very good price liao.”

*smiling and shaking my head* Quickly cabut without checking on the product.

Once I reached home, dem excited liao. First thing I do is try on the toothbrush. Fuyoh, syok 99. like a virgin first time popping the cherry. Somemore hor, the electric toothbrush cleans better than my convention toothbrush. Now my teeth is smooth and sparkle!

Thought want to take pic on the toothbrush but last night too late and lazy liao. Want to sleep ma. So this morning, I google the pic for you all la.

Exactly the same model and colour, minus the toothbrush holder, butterfly and cup.

So I google further. Wah got orange colour also wor. Nice! Thought of buying that for my daughter. Then google again. Aiks! The model name is Osim uKids Sparkle.

For kids wan ah? Dem potong stim liao this time. 666

Still better than nothing hor. A zillion thank you to HSBC Credit Card and Osim. ailubyu 99!

p/s: This HSBC hor, for 3 years liao I’ve been trying to cancel my card but they won’t let me. And for that 3 years I never use my card. Only once when I do “balance transfer”. So you say paiseh or not lidat? They lub me, I lub them too!

p/p/s: Must stop reading Sengkor blog now. His manglish bugs get me this time. No eye see.
