The bag is mine with Maybank2u!

Maybank2u is the first and THE ONLY online banking that I am using. It is easy, convenience and a saviour.

As an avid user of Maybank2u and a compulsive buyer plus A SELF PROCLAIMED fashionista, I am blessed to own a Maybank2u account and a fashion sense plus monies to spend.

Hot Fashion items are like a biscuits, now you see now you don’t but limited edition bag is like an urban legend. As a bags collector, I try to find a state of the art designer bag that is so visible that Anna Wintour can recognize from her Chanel shades. I saw a photo showing model flaunting a very interesting bag that later become my object of obsession. You know when you love and want something so bad, all the energy will pop up and your mind easily calculating the amount of work that you need to do to fund the purchase of the bag. But the bag only available the next season and I must wait.  I keep on waiting and anticipating.


But until the next season, I keep calling the store in KL but they said the bag is not available on our shore. It is one of the hottest items and probably won’t make it here. I love my country but why oh why they won’t ship the bag here. Great.. they can export Gangnam Style but not the bag? It is ridiculous.


I browse through the entire internet shopping that you can imagine but I can’t find the bag. I almost give up. But I keep a positive mind and using the law of attraction. I put the image of the bag as my screen saver!


In less than one week, while me waiting for my friend for a quick green tea latte session, I’m on facebook and one of my FB friends (note: I have like thousands of fans and followers on FB, so they are not really friend as a normal friend that I personally know)  put on facebook the photo of the bag . yes.. THE BAG!


He writes “ Want to sell the bag, with dust bag and authentication card. Transfer money to Maybank2u. First pay gets the bag!”.


Arggh… First pay gets the bag? For authentification, I msg the guy through facebook and after a few chats, I know it is original and he told me that 3 others are chatting with him at the same time and really love the bag.


So, to make sure I get the bag, I must transfer  fund to his account.


So, in a few minutes I log on to my maybank2u account and pay him.


The rest is history.

Did I tell you I cancel my green tea latte date with my friend so I can drive around an hour to collect the bag from him!
