06.03.2013 | 一馬書券

[Volume 8 Issue 3, #1681]
今年政府繼續大肆鋪張「糖果政策」, 本來仲以為自己唔會再拎到呢啲買書禮券, 點知學院電郵通知去領取, 幾唔方便都要抽時間去啦梗係!! 同舊年一樣, 每人可得價值RM250嘅書券, 舊年就真係得書券喇, 今年就升呢到有埋張卡片同信封添!! 其實我話, 嘥乜鬼錢另外印張卡片同信封吖, 拎到之後都係嚟手劈㗎啦, 你方會有人留返做紀念咩?? 哈哈.. 查實舊年我因為冇留意到個有效期, 白白浪費咗大喇喇RM250(@#$%^&*!), 所以今年肯定係唔容許自己重蹈覆轍㗎喇!! 我要買book, 荷包漲book-book呀, 好意頭!! :D
the government continues with the "candy strategy" this year, i thought i would not be eligible for these book vouchers anymore, but the college emailed me to collect them, of course i am not going to miss it anyhow!! similar to last year, each student gets RM250 worth of book vouchers, but this year instead of just the vouchers, we were also given a set of printed card and envelope.. frankly, i find those a waste of money, for sure most will just throw them away, who on earth would ever want to keep them as souvenirs?? haha.. actually i did not realize the expiry of the vouchers given last year, and therefore i have wasted that good RM250 just like that (@#$%^&*!), hence i shall never let myself repeat the same mistake again this year!! i want to buy books, so that my wallet is "cheung book book" (means bloated in cantonese), oh so auspicious!! :D

    5. KNS, Silly SK for wasting the voucher last year.

      I just join to the crowd to scold only.

    6. Wah lauu-eh! (with a Teochew accent) - to also add insult to injury. haha..

      But what STP said is true - if it's not yours, it's not yours so no point crying over spilt milk. Just remember to make it yours the second time around. Happy shopping! Does it include stationery at the bookstore?

      Delete
    7. yeah, how careless i was for slipping the expiry date away!! wasted RM250 just like that.. this time i shall remember the expiry date and never let the vouchers void~~

      Delete
    8. Don't just remember, set a reminder in your phone so that you will not miss it again~ :)

  4. Good morning all :-D

    Really cheong bok bok lo. I see many bookstore advertising that they accept the voucher.

    The other day I went to bbw..they even have contest. Those who use the vouchers to buy books will get chance to win a car ipone ipad yhis and that.this contest still goes on in bookxcess.

    I wonder why bookstore are hard sell promote the use of this voucher. Is it purely to get more sales or does government give special incentives to bookstore that accept it? Tax incentive ir what ....alamak...next month have to submit tax form again

    Oo these vouchers hv expiry dates? One year ah? Rugi lo if tarak redeem

    1. yeah i do think so, sure they will get some incentive from the government if they receive the BB1M book vouchers, else why do they want to highlight that they welcome the vouchers to be used?? somemore the Popular bookshop gives freebies if we use RM150 vouchers and above in their shop.. sure ada "jack-so" else who wants to advertise for free??

      you wish lah one year.. only like three months validity!! why give you one year validity?? that's very stupid, haha~~

      Delete
    2. three months only ah...time flies leh ...very fast it will slip away...faster use lor

      Delete
    3. Faster use the voucher, don't keep. Because I tend to forget after keeping it :p

    2. hahaha the "book voucher" ..i wonder whether applicable for "Notebook/netbook" or not...after all it's still have the word "book" there :P

      Delete
    3. Hahahaha, maybe it's applicable. I think they have some voucher/discount for certain people to buy smartphone, right?

      I wonder why there are so many kind of vouchers nowadays.

    1. Don't be surprised you will get another voucher soon!

      Delete
    2. You are correct that they wasted a lot to print nonsense lately! Even the water crisis issue was crazy! They printed a newsletter format to explain in lengthy details.

      They really try so hard by creating the One Malaysia concept on everything for their image branding. Now Thambee take the voucher means must give back something?????? Ahah!

      Delete
    3. I never get any voucher or any money for myself, except the RM100 for each of my girls.

      They should also think of something to give me. Then, I will consider to give back something to them.

      Delete
    4. nah, i don't think they will be giving another round of vouchers or cash in near future.. probably their "deadline" has come and this so called BR1M and BB1M will become history already, a very sarcastic history indeed..

      errr, is there an agreement that those who took the vouchers must give something in return?? none of my knowledge tells me that.. well, i sure will "give something" during the GE13~~ :D

      Delete
    5. I didn't get the RM100 yet!! My girl's school "telan" it already!

      Give something to me and return a favor to them? Em, see first la.

    1. Ya lo! Does this voucher apply to only certain category of books? Such as reference books or academy related books.

      Can this voucher be used for children story books, work books or recipe books too?

      Delete
    2. RM250 can buy one year's supply of books?? what book first?? unless one book is less than RM1 lah, haha!! nowadays books also very expensive lah..
