Went out to Gomobile09 exhibition at KLCC last Sunday. For me its nothing much to see since my intention was not to shop for new phones but just to see whats new.
Well, the excitement was not as I expected and there were not many visitors. Maybe because this is just after Raya Aidil Fitri and the next pay day is third week of November after the last one on 12 October.
What I have in mind is to see the Blackberry which is becoming the trend of mobile working today.
I just walk around and feels just like walking into a shopping mall with mobile phone sellers. The only different is the addition of the GPS booth and some government agencies promoting their services, mostly from the MCMC.
I answered some surveys, get goodies and thats quite some of what happens. I even subscribed to KL247 a website about informations for Kuala Lumpur.
At one of the booth a lady promoter came into our path and handed two small box to my son. It was a toy mini minor and another one is a mug. I refused at first but she seems to be very desperate to get new subscribers for credit card and at first just beg me to give just my name and house address number. Well, I succumbed to her plea and in actual fact gave more that what she requested at first. Yea, I applied for a new credit card.
In my little heart, I smiled at myself because I am dead sure my application will not be approved because of I think you all know what. I am at the moment settling all my cards and terminating the service to switch to debit cards which can teach me more prudent spending. What more from next year one have to waste RM50.00 paying the government just for nothing to own a credit card which is equivalent to pay for going into debt.
So, I get a mini minor and a mug after all.
