Digi Yellow Men: Follow Me Lar...






I have got a bone to pick…A big bone…



You know those Digi Yellow Men? Those Yellow men who go around following people, who parachuted from the rocket, and who went for Army Training to become bigger, better, whatever?



Those yellow men who tinkle “I Will Follow You” and followed people to Japan, France, Africa, the cinema, some Gunung somewhere, and here, there and everywhere?

Well, I got one thing to say: Pah!




Cos you know why? Those yellow men, didn’t follow me to Inti…Well, they did, but they keep going for lunch break, tea break, MC, AWOL, CNY-break, Raya-break, X-Mas-break, ponteng, paid-leave, late-Malaysian-style etc etc etc…

So, it’s like they didn’t follow me at all…




I live on top of Bukit Jambul, and it is a place which has plenty of trees…

My wireless is bad, and so is my handphone line…




I am surprised…If the yellow men can go to the gunung (and hey, last I heard, they could even follow the rocket for some time before parachuting off!), how come they can’t come to the bukit?!?




Do you know, if I want to make a phone call, to receive a phone call, or to send an sms (receive also, most of the time), I need to leave my room, and get to the road outside my hostel?

How ridiculous is that?




And while I am outside on the phone, those mozzies (mosquito) decided they loved me so much,
they made me queen…So yeah, to be in touch with the rest of the world, I have to stand outside, and let the mozzies make a meal out of me…

It is so dumb…




Which is why if I happen to be asleep, I am very lazy to pick up the phone when some call comes in, and I am also very malas to answer sms’s…Cos to hear the other person (and them me), and for the message to go out, I need to leave my room…



It is all the worse if I happen to be in my jammies…Not exactly very decent material to be out on the road…




So yeah, you Digi Yellow Men, could you please, please, please, come to Inti before you go anywhere else in the world? Could you please, please, please, send three of those men and put one outside my door, and two outside my window?



Oh, by the way, it would be great if you could send women instead…The girls’ hostel is out of bound for men ; )…




PS: I stubbornly refuse to change my number because


1) I like my very nice number, and

2) I like the rates (sometimes, anyway) and I get birthday bonuses…



Looks like I will one of those people who will be waiting for the new service in which you can change your provider and still keep your number...

Dear Daphne:

The yellow men the green men the blue dove...all are conning us with their super-good advertisement.

I was a celcom subsciber for almost 10 years and a few years back celcom decide to ?upgrade their system, resulting in late delivery of their bills. Came 3 monthly . Just imagine for 3 months it was btwn 500-700 ringgit. Sometimes the bill will arrive in the 4th months. Finally because of late payment( hey they don't care if their bills came late..you are considered late payee and disrupt your line. Finally I got fed up and went to Melaka celcom centre. Paid all my bills and terminated their service. The officer pleaded but I was upset and said NO. Now I'm using Maxis. They are okay. They'll sms you for payments. But of late I'm getting unsolicited messages from maxis to download this and that, for this and that contest.

But with poor coverage of Yellowmen in this remote area...have to stick with Maxis.

Hey Daph!
You are sooo funny girl! Those Digi man scary lar. They look like condoms! Scary scary people.

nstman said...

Go for Celcom, Miss Ling. You can even sms in a cubicle. Jungle, no problem. The Celcom idiots are now more professional unlike a few years ago when they thought they were god's gift to handphones. They have been mauled by Digi and Maxis, but i believe they have learnt a lesson about humility. Long live Celcom.

J.T. said...

Pity you are not in the States. You can keep your number and change the provider. Hopefully, someday, some phone company will introduce that convenience in Malaysia.

In the meantime, as much as you love your number, do consider Maxis or Celcom. Go ahead and have two numbers.. oh wait.. then you will need two phones. Care to carry two? :D

P.S. Don't invite those yellow men to your place. First they will be outside your room. Next thing, they will be hiding behind some plant in your bedroom. ;)

Daph,
I wouldn't want to have those yellow men stalking me wherever I go. Just the thought of it gives me the creeps... ;)

gymbunni said...

Gosh that was funny, what a refreshing post on the Yellow Man. I thought we got rid of him when we sent him up to space...drats

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Jimi,

Haha...Ya tak ya juga...

I pun feel nak hantar ni tu the syarikat...Tengok apa alasan mereka dong...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Kak Farina, Aunty Rita,

Haha! Knew sure got people who ask me to change!

But right now, I'm keeping this number...After all, I've got about a year more only, and it's cheap for me to yak with my parents as my bro and me are under the family plan thingy...=)

I just think Digi should not advertise something which they cannot fulfill...

Like some scam! *Growl*

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Azian Hasan,

Welcome to me bloggie!

Yeah, they memang geli pun...I meant figuratively lar, asking them to ikut me =) Kekeke...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Doc,

Wahlau...Your handphone bills tinggi giler! But then again, your work needs it, huh?

Haih...Looks like the Yellowmen are bad everywhere huh? Then they shouldn't advertise like they're the best...

I was actually taruh-ing them in this post...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Jo-D,

You know, I thought they were condoms too ;)! When I first saw them, thought they were some promotional thingy of Durex or something, and was busy marvelling that the Malaysian gomen allowed such a commercial!

Haha...Oh well...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi NSTman,

Long time no see, sir!

As for Celcom, I'm contemplating getting Celcom Broadband...I hear you need an account there, so we'll see how this goes...=)

But thanks for the info!

Daphne Ling said...

Hi JT,

The Malaysian Gomen said we will be having this service soon...The one where we can keep our numbers and change providers...Looking forward to it!

As for the DigiMen, they can stay outside the window with the curtains drawn ;) And no, won't carry two phones lar...One also I can't keep track adi! Keke...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Kak Pi,

I know what you mean! Weird costumes those people have...Nevermind, we have our pepper sprays! *Grrrr*

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Gymbunni,

Wah...Another bunny? Haha...

Anyway, Thanks for dropping by...

I thought we got rid of them Yellow People when they were sent to space too!

But I think the first thing I did was snort...

They can't come to the Bukit, they wanna go to space?

Yeah, right!
