Extremely bad start with UOB One

With the influx of posts on social media re UOB One (psst on grabpay) and the receipt of my house keys, I decided it was the time to sign up for a UOB One account plus credit card.

It was gonna be the best tool for household joint expenses and joint savings.

However, I've faced multiple hiccups that made me VERY frustrated....WHY ME?!
1. Delayed approving process led to losing out of sign up bonus
First, I signed up for the UOB One card and Account in early Oct through Singsaver's promotion. The promotion said that I'd get to enjoy cash incentive for registration + UOB's promotion of $80 cash credit with min $1k spent within 30 days of card approval. Mind you, these terms were stated to end on 31 Oct, extracted below:

S$80 Cash Credit for UOB One Account: Limited to the first 500 new to UOB Deposits customers who either (i) deposit and maintain $5,000 or (ii) credit their salary, into their new UOB account for 6 consecutive months. Terms and conditions of the UOB Online …

The $10 bet - Part 2

It's amusing to re-read my blogpost more than a year ago. Back then, I submitted my 3rd $10 bet.

I akin it to TOTO because it's like striking lottery.

If you're lucky, you'll get the place you desire (for some, it's literally worth a million-dollar).

If not, you'll just keep betting till you...someday, one day, hopefully, gets it.

And I, one year down the road, am still betting on my chance. How interesting.

I haven't realise how desperate I must have felt each time I got a rejection. One year down and I've already made 3 additional bets, all of which I didn't even get a number! I felt like a jilted lover every time I receive that heartless email from HDB which says
Unfortunately, as your balloted queue position has far exceeded the flat supply, we regret to inform that your application has not been successful.
I should have been luckier. After all, I applied numerous times under MCPS. Why didn't I get a number? Why didn't I get a chance? I had double chances! Why am I so suay? I did so much homework, researching on the flats, the layouts, the prices and affordability......all as if I could get that chance.

I sometimes console myself that God has better plans for me. My friends in turn console me, but ask me to seek MPs help instead (like whut....seriously?).

I'm no longer bothered to research on the flats, layouts and prices. I guess this is how one feels when you go through the same process numerous times. Get it then say la!

So today, I submit my 6th $10 bet. Again, under MCPS. And I hope I'll never have to pay the 7th $10 to HDB ever again.
