Below contents were published on April Fools’ Day based on my sick imagination, and since 1st April 2015 has passed, you are hereby warned not to proceed reading the contents below unless you are freaking free and got nothing better to do like me or simply a “penyibuk” (busybody). But if you are new to credit cards, you may learn a thing or two and taught why you should never sign up for a personal loan.
BREAKING NEWS!!! (Posted via iPad Mini at Starbucks) – Previously, in my article The Top 10 Best Credit Cards in Malaysia, I attached a sample email to Maybank CEO for those of you who have applied for a Maybank Credit Card after reading my article(s) and requesting them to pay me RM11.18 (pack of fags) as kick back. Well, I also wrote to harimau bank demanding that they pay me RM11.18 for being biased when reviewing their credit cards. Instead, they offered me a job and I need your opinion (you guys, my iFriends).

And click click here to read my article where I explained why my blog is called GenX GenY GenZ, thanking you guys for your support and I how I came about concluding that many of you are my iFriends.
Two days ago, I received a call from a lady who claims she is harimau bank CEO’s Personal Assistant. She informed me that her CEO has learned about my articles and has pressing matters to discuss with me. I asked her what is the matter of concern, but she refused to disclose any further information except that it is in my best interest to go to their HQ Level 28 the day after at 8.30a.m and ask for her, Pn. Noraniza.
So, today I had to wake up freaking early at 6.30am and left my home at 7am. I thought 1 hour should give me ample time to reach their HQ (and maybe have a ”teh tarik” too at one of the “Mamak” stalls nearby). Boy, I tell you the rush hour traffic jam is really freaking ridiculous. There are just too many freaking MYVIs and Alphards on the road! My blood pressure was shooting up like hell until I heard Fly FM’s Crappy Call, hahaha. I tell you, the government should raise car prices and impose 100% tax instead of reducing the tax from 10% to the 6% GST, thus making cars technically cheaper.
Anyway, I reached Level 28 only about 9.10am. It could have been earlier but the security at the lobby refused to grant me an access card for the lift as I did not know Pn. Noraniza’s full name. They only granted me the card/visitor pass when Pn. Noraniza called me and asked where I was; and, I then passed the phone to the security guard and all was sorted out.
Upon exiting the lift at Level 28, I was blown away…… I tell you the furnishing and fixtures are fit for an Emperor. Pn. Noraniza said that Datuk (referring to the CEO) is running late as he is caught in the normal rush hour. And I was thinking in my head – typical Malaysian, don’t know how to leave earlier in order to arrive promptly and have tons of excuses for being late.
Well, after waiting for an hour, the Datuk CEO arrived at about 10am and I was lead to his office through a grand double leaf door that is more than 16 ft in height and 8ft in width. Upon entering his office, once again I was blown away. Normally, most CEO’s tables are 8ft in length. But this CEO’s table is 18ft long and has 4 mean looking golden (not sure coloured gold, gold plated or solid gold) tiger statues at the 4 corners holding up a freaking well polished mahogany table top (which reflected the sun’s rays directly into my eyes). Then another 2 people walked in and the CEO introduced them as Datuk CC Director of Credit Cards and Datuk HR Director of Human Resources (I was thinking … if they have a Board Meeting, the word most said would be Datuk, hahaha).
Here is the minutes of the meeting:
CEO: Mr. GenX, can I call you GenX?
ME: Sure Bro, sorry, I mean Datuk.
CEO: Firstly, I am a big fan of your blog. Your FREE articles, especially your freaking long articles on matters relating to LIFE, as they provide me hours of FREE entertainment. The main reason why I requested for this meeting is that I want to see the face of the person that is responsible for increasing my credit card base by two fold. My credit card department informed me that most of our card holders applied for our credit cards based on your recommendation.

Me: Thank you Datuk for the kind words. (Thinking in my head – good start, he’s a follower of mine).
CEO: I would like to personally thank you for recommending our credit cards. When I recommend my bank’s cards to my friends, they think I only want their business. So, I refer many of my friends and customers to your blog and now many of them are your followers too. This is because they are able to make their wife happy as they get to fly Business Class (for FREE redeemed with Enrich Miles converted from their Credit Card’s Rewards Points).
Me: Thank you Datuk. Thinking in my head – this meeting is getting better by the minute.
CEO: However, as you are aware and you even published an article on it, we are inflating our Credit Cards’ Reward Points Program.

Datuk CC: And the revision is all due to your fault!
Me (in shock, “buta buta kena taruh”): Excuse me Datuk, why am I to be blamed?
