I went to Tabung Haji at Damansara Uptown on Monday since I was still on leave. Husband was persuading me to go to Kelana Jaya Tabung Haji instead since it is bigger and have more counters but of course I kept insisting to go to the Damansara Uptown's branch since I was planning to go to One Utama afterwards. We went there around 3 in the afternoon and what a crowd it was inside Tabung Haji! It seemed that everybody want to go to Tabung Haji to open account for the child after getting all those duit raya judging from the kids inside and the amount of the Tabungs that have been distributed (if your kids open an account there, they will give you this Tabung Haji-shaped tabung you see). So what am I doing here you ask? I, of course want to deposit Husayn's duit raya into his Tabung Haji account and update my own nifty little account.
Before this I usually deposited my Tabung Haji and Husayn's through Maybank2u. They will of course charge you for every transaction and I think if the amount is to be totalled, it is better for me to do potongan gaji instead since the latter choice won't need me to pay any extra charges.
Anyway there was this one lady with her four kids, and she was holding her youngest son because he kept crying, while her husband was filling up the forms to open accounts for their kids. She was struggling to comfort her child while lullabying him to sleep, but to no avail. And her husband did not do anything to help! Judging by her face I thought she must be really pissed, and if it was me I will insist Husband to send me back to the car. Her turn is like 10 persons away and luckily this good Samaritans who happen to be the Tabung Haji counter staff invited them to the counter first. I thought that was good of that Tabung Haji guy, but somehow with 2 counters opened, the numbers are not moving and it was already 4.30pm, and suddenly what I have been dreaded became a reality:
HARAP MAAF. KOMPUTER TERGENDALA
So there, all plan fails and we were off to One Utama while Husband kept saying "tu la..tak nak dengar kata.." referring to his insisting to Kelana Jaya Tabung Haji earlier.
Anyway I ended up going to the same Tabung Haji again on Tuesday morning before going off to work, and all is fine now.
The moral of the story is, sometimes it is better to listen to your Husband. Haha..yes, you read that right- sometimes.
