The Great Credit Card Seduction

Credit Cards, either you love it or hate it or maybe a love and hate affair. There are pros and cons of using credit cards but ultimately it depends on the users themselves how their credit cards are utilized.

Anyway, I reckon guys would have more credit cards compared to girls not because guys earns more but because guys are easily seduced or coaxed in applying for credit cards regardless they will use the cards or not.

I believe most of you have already experienced being approached by the credit card sales team and basically knows how they sell the cards or influence you into applying for one. Nowadays, it is more to seduction or pity tactic to coax you into applying for the cards.

When they cannot influence you into believing that the cards will be of tremendous benefits to you, they will resolve to pity tactic as in asking for help to fulfill their quota in a pitiful manner. And most of the time they know how to choose their victims.

Like I said, guys are more easily influenced. Girls would go for guys and being guys, they will most likely give in when girls show their sad face or even show their sexy smile. Ahem.

Yours Truly also applied for some credit cards. Not that my earnings or spending power is high, in fact my earnings can only sustain one credit card. But noooooo~~, I have to go and get myself 6 of em credit cards. The gullible and naive me kena tricked into applying for more.

6 credit cards


So the story goes on like this, after I am influenced into applying for 4 credit cards using the common tactics the immunity practically sets in already and I am determined that I will not apply for any credit cards anymore regardless the seduction, temptation or tactics.

Manage to fend off a few that uses the same tactics until recently there is this girl who succeed in breaking through my defense armour that is infused with heavenly stone which makes it +100 DEF rare artifact.

Anyway, at the end I applied for another two credit cards that I know I won't be using. Oh the gullible and naive me kena cheated again.

How you ask?

The girl resort to kneeling down and uses persuasion skill level 100 and in no time at all, I find myself signing the application form.

I mean, like come on. Kneeling down boh. Being the gentleman I am, of course i need to help the poor helpless soul. Ahem.

Girl kneeling down boh. Suddenly feel like emperor like that. Probably that is why I am tricked again. Oh, the young, naive and gullible me. Ahem.

I am sure 10 out of 10 guys, 9 would have signed or applied on the spot. The other one who doesn't is a gay. So there.

Almost like the following picture boh. So can't blame me also lah since I am a perfectly healthy alpha male. Ahem.

Boh Pien. No Choice.

Like I said, us guys are easily influenced.

Make that distracted.

Ahem.

Sea Fishing

 ***Before continuing with the post. Just wanted to say that I am back and hopefully will be able to post more consistently and more often from now onwards. I know you all missed me. Don't be shy now. You know you do. Ahem***



Yours Truly went fishing at the sea a while back. It is a 2 days 1 night fishing trip on a fishing boat that can accommodate around 10 people.

The battle equipments

So, to Telaga Air yours truly went. That is where the fishing boat will take us out to the sea. Seems like Telaga Air is under somesort of construction to build a waterfront of somesort. The view from the Telaga Air jetty is quite beautiful. There are a lot of local visitors around with a couple of makeshift stalls selling drinks and food.

After waiting for quite a while, the fishing boat came and we load all our belongings and battle gears onto the fishing boat. Went around the fishing boat and saw that there is a room with air conditioning and also a small toilet. For a moment there I thought we would have to relief ourselves the "natural" way if there is no toilet. Exposed to the nature elements in our fullest naked glory. Ahem.

After loading all our battle gears onto the boat, we set off to our battlefield. Along the way, the sceneries are breathtakingly beautiful. There is this unexplained awe looking at the sea and its surroundings.

Along the way, we spotted another fishing boat going out. Aha, competitor for the best fishing spot. May the best fisherman get the best catch. Ahem. Anyway, while waiting to arrive at the destination, we prepare our battle equipments with the fishing lines, hooks and all. Best to be prepared early.

Yours Truly gets some shuteye since the journey is quite long and wakes up to the smell of tea being served. Somehow, having tea and biscuits in the wide open sea is quite enjoyable. We also pack some instant noodle so that we can fill our stomach fast. One can't go on a battle with empty stomach mmmmmkay.

Before I go on further, I feel the need to clarify further that I am a beginner to sea fishing. The only fishing I ever do is at the longkang or river back in Sibu with a wooden/bamboo stick, fishing line, and a few worms wringling around. Yes, the kampung way. I am afterall considered a kampung boy coming from a small town.

Thus, normally I will just use the fishing equipment prepared by others instead of preparing it myself. Hence, I find it quite interesting the way some of the bait is prepared. We use bait from the small fish we caught, some squids, and prawns. 

There is one interesting method of preparing a bait that preserve the whole fish in a sense. Somesort of like camouflage the hooks or something.

(Disclaimer: If you look at the fish's eye long enough, you might have nightmare of some demon fish staring at you. So, BenardCometh Revelations will not be responsible for any nightmares you might experience for your foolish attempt to stare at the fish's eye for extended period of time. Beware. =p)

3 in one attempt
When we arrived at our fishing spot, everyone are all geared up for battle and busy fishing. Yours Truly on the other hand, takes his time and enjoy the sea experience. Watermelon tasted extra tasty at the sea, heck all food tasted extra delicious at the sea. Don't know why but somehow it just tasted good even the simple dinner we had on board tasted extra delicious. Maybe it is the salty sea wind. Perhaps.

Time seems to pass faster when you are having fun. Soon, the sun begins to set. Another picture taking opportunity and being the tigger happy I am, I snapped away taking pictures of all sorts.

Sunset - Another View

Sunset- Yet another view

Sunset - Magnificent


And soon, the sun disappears as if it drops into the sea extinguished by the salty sea water. The moon replace the sun and shine brightly in the night. Brightly as in the moon shine kind of bright.

Yours Truly manning his battle station ever so alert 


This fishing trip, yours truly did not really catch a lot of fish. The most interesting catch is a snail like creature caught hanging on my fishing hook among other catches by the others. People catch fish, I catch snail. Ahem.

Snail of some sort

There,

Just a little bit sticky all over because of the sea wind. Probably.
