I pulled you closer to my chest

I think that you should get some rest

I knew I loved you then

I’m gonna love you till

My lungs give out
直至我的心肺衰竭
I promise till death we part like in our vows
如我们的结婚誓言,
直至死亡将我们分开
So I wrote this song for you, now everybody knows
因此我为你写了这首歌,
我要让全世界知道
‘Cause now it’s just you and me till we’re grey and old
此刻的我和你将白头偕老

Just say you won’t let go
说你不会放手
Just say you won’t let go

Is his embrace really better than mine?

哥练的胸肌
如果你还想靠
If you would still like to lie on my chiseled chest
好胆你就麦造
I dare you to stay

soCash (Review)

[Updated: Oct 2019]

There’s a(n) new app in the App Store – soCash.

Here’s a rough summary of a user experience.

[Before]

1. Upon downloading the app, you can choose to link it to your Facebook(/Google) account or simply provide your email address to sign up.

2. Upon signing up, you can choose either of the funds transfer options:
(a) DBS PayLah!
(b) DBS/POSB iBanking
(c) ICBC

Pretty much whatever you need to do before making your very first cash withdrawal.

[During]

1. Open the app and choose the amount you wish to withdraw. (Minimum $10 and maximum $500 $200)

2. Ensure your current location is accurate to find the nearest cashpoints. (Cashpoints listing would differ based on the amount of money you choose to withdraw. Some cashpoints require you to make a purchase* before you can withdraw money.)

3. Select cashpoint.

4. Confirm cashpoint (and make your way there).

5. Scan QR code on the soCash device (based on your number code) at the cashpoint.

5. Log in to DBS/POSB iBanking portal with your username and pin.

7. Receive the following SMS:
“Your FAST payment via iBanking for S$(amount you chose) to A/C No: XXXXXX1234 on 03/05/2018 is being processed. 12:39:39”

6. A code will appear and you just have to match it with the code that appeared on the little machine in the shop. E.g. 042

7. Once everything is processed and payment is successful, the soCash device will announce for the cashier to pass you your cash the cashier will pass you your cash.

Done.

[After]

(Disadvantages)
1. The process of logging into the bank portal took too long, the cashier managed to clear two customers while I was waiting for my payment to be processed which may result in a certain extent of awkwardness for soCash users.
(Suggestion: to enable user to do a one-time log-in to bank portal and activate fingerprint to approve transaction thereafter.)
–> Users are allowed to log in their bank accounts before reaching the shop. At least, we can save the embarrassment of standing in front of the cashier.

2. The announcement of successful payment by the soCash device is a little too loud (and a little embarrassing) for both cashpoint assistant and soCash users.
(Suggestion: A simple loud “beep” may be sufficient.)
–> The device has finally kept quiet 🙂

3. The email to collect user experience upon using the app can be sent after they made their first transaction. (My first transaction was about 5 days after signing up as the nearest cashpoint was 1km away from me then.)

4. Perhaps my phone is getting old, the app hanged after cash withdrawal.
–> The app has become more user-friendly 🙂

(Advantages)
1. Finally get to know the names of the shops I frequently walked past. (A by-product of using the app)

2. Having users to visiting the cashpoints may also help these shops to increase sales. This is how soCash attracts retailers to sign up as cashpoints.
–> And now that some shops require you to make a purchase in order to withdraw money, it’s definitely a boon than a bane to link up with soCash.

3. Great that I do not have to queue at the ATM. However, assuming that there are long queues at the ATMs only during peak hours, would these shops which serve as cashpoints have a much smaller crowd during peak hours? Would the crowd and long processing time discourage users from using the app to withdraw and just return to queuing in front of the ATMs? Guess as long as there are more cashpoints and a reduction in processing time, this app will still remain convenient and great.

4. Especially convenient and a life-saver if one cannot find an ATM nearby (provided that the nearest cashpoint is nearer than the nearest ATM).

5. They have recently (Oct 2019) brought new deals to users! Before withdrawing your cash, you can pick a deal among the many they have listed. Some examples are:
a) $15 off Agoda booking
b) 10% off Sephora if you are a new customer
c) $5 off GrabFood with $30 spent
d) and many more…(please read the T&Cs of each promotion carefully)
Personally think that this is a real good way of attracting new users and bringing back old customers 🙂

我们不过是刚好的结束
(We broke up just right)
你的眼神别像怜悯动物
(Stop giving me the expression of a pitiful animal)
不任谁摆布 Yeah
(I will not be manipulated by anyone 耶)

你送的礼物 没带走的书
(The presents that you gave,
The books that you didn’t take)
手机对话纪录
(Chat history in my mobile)
清 清空你的纪录
(Clear, clear off all your data)
Cus I Know You Baby
(亲爱的 因为我了解你)

感情怎会易碎得如此无助
(Fragile to this extent,
How could a relationship be so helpless)
像是电脑疯狂地显示错误
(Like a computer,
Popping up error messages insanely)
说的谎 像回音 Get Out Of My Head
(Those lies are like echoes,
快滚离我的大脑)

每动一次清记忆的手术
(Whenever I undergo the surgery to remove my memory)
把心切除感情就不被束缚
(I will get my heart removed so that I will no longer be under anyone’s control)
背叛我们的人 Get Out Of My Head
(Those who betrayed us,
快滚离我的大脑)

So Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude The way I treated you
(所以你为何如此无礼,
我对你那么用情)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)
Say Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude When All I Do Is For You
(请告诉我原因,
为何你如此无礼,
我所做的一切都是为了你)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)

我们不过是三角的函数
(We are just trigonometric functions)
连科学家也算不出变数
(Even mathematicians couldn’t figure out our variables)
难怪错得离谱
(No wonder everything was utterly wrong)

爱是种艺术 不需要战术
(Love is an art,
It doesn’t require tactics)
让我展现风度
(It’s for me to display my demeanour)
清 清空你的篇幅
(Clear, clear off all your space)
Cus I Know You Baby
