12.04.2013 | 證件相片

[Volume 8 Issue 4, #1704]
前日經過大使路政府部門大廈嘅時候, 朋友突如其來話「我哋去換新嘅身份證囉!!」, 就咁好即興地掟個彎駛咗入去.. 弊傢伙, 我完全冇準備, 頭髮又冇梳好嚟, 跟住又係是但著咗件衫咁!! 結果盲頭烏蠅喺廿分鐘內登記完, 俾埋錢, 影埋相, 等第二朝再去領取.. 其實點解我會咁在意呢?? 大家有冇發覺到證件上嗰張相, 往往就係你一生人當中最薯最難睇嘅一張相, 連自己都要好耐先可以接受到?? 偏偏仲要係你嘅身份象征!! 我依家知點解喇, 因為影證件相時, 大家都係最拘緊最唔自然嘅, 就算有笑容都係硬棒棒, 咁樣點會好睇呢?? 加上我當時咁即興, 毫無準備之下去影, 你睇下, 家陣搞到張相咁鬼肉酸!! 死啦, 可能仲要跟住我個十年八年㗎.. 唉, 其實我有衝動再做過張新證件, 至少可以影過張靚仔啲嘅相呵?? 不過點影結果都一樣啦, 係個樣嘅問題, 唔係張相嘅問題囉~~:D
passed by the government agency complex at Jalan Duta the other day, my friend suddenly said "let's go change for our new identity cards!!", and so we spontaneously made a turn into the building.. OMG, i wasn't prepared at all, didn't get my hair styled up nicely and was wearing a fugly tee!! so within 20 minutes i blurringly registered, paid, took photo and wait to collect the new identity card the next morning.. why do i care so much really?? have you ever noticed that photo on your ID is probably the most nerdy and most ugly photo of your lifetime, and it took you so long to accept it?? moreover, it represents your identity!! now i know why, all the time when we take ID photos, we are kind of stressed and overly serious, even when we put on a smile it may just be a hard one, tell me how can we look good like that?? furthermore i went there totally unprepared, now look at how frustratingly fugly it is!! die lor, this photo will follow me for at least another ten years.. haiz, i actually have an impulse to redo a new identity card, at least i can take a nicer photo huh?? but then it will still be the same, the problem lies in how i look and not the photo itself~~ :D

    1. 新IC有更多security features, 見唔見中間多咗張細相?? 係其中一個features囉.. 依家尚未規定每個人都一定要換, 所以趁啲人仲未一窩蜂去換嘅時候, 咋咋臨咁解囉~~

    2. 好,七月返屋企去換。

  2. Good morning SK and everybody!
    Happy Flyday!
    Eh why you wanna change new ID? Usually people change new ID if it's lost or involved the change of address...
    And how much is it?

    1. And since you so care about the look of the photo, you shouldn't go with your friend that time, haha xD Should have gone for a nice hair wash and go home change clothes first ma~

      Really spontaneous la you two! ^^

      Delete
    2. But then, it's not often we will show our ID to people la, only in certain occasion.
      So to me, how we look in that photo doesn't really matter. (But I do agree, the ID photo is the ugliest photo we can take, haha xD)

      Delete
    3. Actually I think your new ID photo is ok already, no need redo another one.
      See the old one, your face is so 'white'! It's the flash effect right? Haih, my ID photo also like that, the face so white, so ugly and scary! LOL!

      Delete
    4. there are more security features on the new IC, you noticed that extra small photo in the center?? that's one of those.. now still not mandatory for everyone to change, so i just change first before the crowd lor.. got it done within 20 minutes and only paid RM10 lah, so quite okay lah..

      hahaha, never mind lah, be spontaneous mah, afterall i also seldom look at my IC~~ :D

      Delete
    5. oooo ok ignore my question ....it's rm10 still ah...

      me wanna change IC too but maybe next year la. Then can update new address. Malas to go so many round ...lol...

      means this year I can still vote under seputeh area MUHAHAHAHAHA....my area here no need to wait result also know which party will win la

      Delete
    6. aiyah, now change also can because the use the 2012Q4 voters registration mah.. now not yet in-force the change so not many people yet, better go change earlier possible lah.. don't wait till last minute, then sure gotta wait for hours!!

      aiyah, your Seputeh area sure de facto is HERS one lah, no doubt one.. :D

      Delete
    7. Eh? Need to pay RM10? Gomen implemented new security features and asked the Rakyat to fork out for the changes-that-we-never-asked?

      RM10 per person, there are 27 (?) millions of Rakyat... wow, that huge $$$ earned.

      By the way, what is so special about the new features?

      Delete
    8. true also what Ah Hua said huh?? now i actually think the government should have bear that cost right?? we paid tax and this added security should be one of the benefits for us lah~~

      Delete
  3. LOL!
    True what you said about our ID photo. I sometimes have the feeling that the camera is skewed to make us look our worst. Oops!

    Is that two images of the cardholder on the new IC?

    Good morning! Great sunny day today..

    Replies
    1. hahaha, you also think so?? that's always the most stoned and nerdy and ugliest photo ever, haha!! oh yeah, there will be one extra photo in the new IC, one of the extra security feature.. so now, worse still, you have TWO ugly photos~~ :D

      Delete
  4. Hello Bloggers! Adoi. This SK was so damn free and just joined the crowd to change IC. Now I think your face looks thinner and better with the new IC lah. Happy??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. eih, there is no crowd at all lah, i got it done within 20 minutes only.. if you don't change now, later when the government announce this is a must, even more people and you have to wait for hours~~ that's what the officer on duty told us..

      Delete
    2. I might want to do it too since my address has been changed and my face also changed! Ha ha ha..

      Delete
    3. if you still want to vote in your current area then you don't have to change your address.. but i think Anay grows more handsome now so must have a nicer photo on his IC~~ :D

  5. These days the ICs are issued so fast unlike 20 years ago when it took months!!!! Those days the registration department hired snails to work.

    1. those days need to wait one whole day just to take number ...then unlucky have to go back again the next day to queue again.....need to take leave...so troubesome

    2. yalor, it was so troublesome last time!! i wonder why it needs to take so long huh?? BTW do you still keep your old IC?? i mean the very first generation, a piece of paper laminated and lembik-lembik one~~ haha!!

      Delete
    3. They didn't take back your 1st generation's IC? I thought when you collected your new IC, you have to give back the old one. It's illegal to own more than one same identity document/

      I am the first generation to get the new IC. I don't have the 7-digit old IC number :D

      Delete
    4. oh is it?? they took back that laminated lembik old IC?? i can't remember already, i just know i have no idea where it has been now, haha!! eih, they gave me back my old IC lah, as you can see in the photo, they punch two holes on the old IC and return that back to you.. well understood that this is not valid already lah..

      Delete
  6. I am impressed with the new security features having a smaller photo. Don't tell me our earlier batch of ICs had forgeries again?

    4. yalah, now with extra one small photo (means we now have TWO ugly ID photo) and the chip is with bigger capacity.. like Mama Meow said, that one company sure will have more to untung lah.. anyway, the rakyat still pays RM10 lah..

      Delete
    5. Wah! If I didn't read this post, I also didn't know that new IC has 2 pictures now. Silly Yannie.

      Delete
    6. But I still don't get it. Why 2 photos?

      As if one photo is not enough to show our fugliness, must put TWO to emphasis it >.<

      Frankly, I hardly use the chip. Except when I want to check my EPF summary account via the EPF booth. Oh ya, and not forgetting in the bank - which I patronize once a year (or maybe none!).

      Delete
    7. yalah, now that we have TWO ugly photos on our IC.. i also do not understand how much added security that will give??

      Delete
    8. Yalor why need two photos on NRIC? hmmmmm?????

    9. the so-called added security feature for our new IC mah~~ :p

  7. I always praise the existing passports with the chips inside that enables us to walk through the immigration check point fast & easy much to the surprise of other foreign visitors inside the airports. Are we still the only country in the world with this special passports??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no, we are not the only country with such scan-through passport now, but i believe we were the very first one.. if not mistaken, SG and HK are implementing it already.. all the Asian countries, haha~~ i remember last time Mahathir has to write to every country to explain that Malaysians won't have departure stamps on their passport anymore..

      Delete
    2. The last time I travel oversea was 7 years ago and the expired passport doesn't have any chip. Needed to stamp here and there whenever I went through the immigration check point, and boy, I hate the queuing!

      Delete
    3. huh?? 7 years ago already comes with the new passport with chip i guess.. that time i've already been using the autogate already.. if not mistaken during Mahathir's time already implemented lah..

      Delete
    4. Passport with chip is really convenient. I like that feature too whenever I passed through airport custom.

      Delete
    5. actually i do go to the counter sometimes if i have to queue at the autogate.. but i also prefer to have immigration stamps on my passport, they look nice don't you think??

      malas wanna go 3rd time....

    2. Meow,
      Better go change la and check again.

      Later suddenly your religion change to Islam habis you....

      Your family cannot claim your body. How?

      Don't play play.

    3. Wah! This Mak rempit cleber to scare me!!!!



      This pussy cat was Hindu and married Kaldip later. Correct what.. No?

    4. the new directive is not in force yet, but it's good to change earlier to beat the last minute crowd lah.. still RM10 for the new IC..

      huh?? how to check the info from the chip?? i tarak itu IC reader lah.. hey, this Ah Na very clever, now only she explains why our agama cannot be Islam~~ scary lah!! @_@"

      Delete
    5. Annay, Ah Na is not scaring you. It's true, if your religion is wrong in your IC, e.g Islam, you'll go to Islam burial ritual when you leave the world.

      I better go check my IC now. I never bother to check. Where to check, meow? I don't have a chip scanner at home, how ar?

      Delete
    6. yalah, anyone can enlighten us here where to check that info ah?? cos i turned to the back of the IC and saw the IC number is being padded with two more numbers 03 and 01.. is one of those religion code??

      Delete
    7. It's not only your burial that will get affected if you are wrongly stated as "Islam" in your religion. Your non-muslim family will not get your estate. Harta goes to Baitulmal unless there is a will.

      Such a headache when someone converts quietly into Islam and not inform their family. Poor family will have so much headache afterwards.

      Islam does not teach its followers to be inconsiderate. :(

      Delete
    8. oh that is scary lah, thanks for sharing this piece of very important information Ah Na~~

  18. I think it is ok, if IC and passport's photo look not nice. As long as they can see our face clearly and stamp "Approved" than you're a very happy person. We dun want to hear " Encik, gambar ini tak serupa! "

    1. eih, i went to renew my passport during november 2010, i brought my NEW photos and the officer rejected because she said i used back the same old photo..

  19. Your post today reminded me to take out my IC and stared at my fugly face. Even myself in my driving license looks 100% better. Of course I took my driving license photo in the studio, with makeup and hair styled, kakakaka. Vain pot!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I never liked taking out my IC and show to strangers in the gomen office or bank. My IC has been kept deep inside the pocket of my wallet for ages and I tried not to remember its existence. All because of the fugly, pale-looking, fat face of mine.

      Delete
    2. yes, only the IC photo is taken on the spot by the officers!! somemore there is no mirror and comb, gel etc for you to get your hair tidied up like in the studio.. and they never tell you to how to look good, furthermore once taken cannot preview.. die lah, sure UGLY like that..

      but recently okay for me but i remember last time, whenever people saw my IC and they always ask "ini you ke??"..
