My experience in past 2 days where one of the day i forgot to bring my wallet out.

 

Day 1 - with wallet but never get to use cash 

 

- Went to the physio at NUH, after the session i went to make payment, counter nurse told me 'cashless please'.

 

- Going to watch movie with wife, so i make booking via phone apps and pay through Masterpass.

 

- Took a grab to orchard.

 

- Still have an hour to kill while waiting for wife, went to a cafe for coffee, place order and took out cash, the staff point to the signboard 'cashless payment ONLY'.

 

Day 2 - without wallet (i left it in my wife's bag when we were watching movie)

 

- Didn't notice i dun have my wallet until i reach office bus stop, my ezlink card was behind my phone try to act like i have a NFC sim card [laugh] .

 

- Panic for 2min thinking how to survive for the day, walk into Starbucks which i have the Starbucks app in my phone, breakfast settled.

 

- Come lunch time, dun want to eat Starbucks again, heng i stored a credit card in Samsung Pay. walk to Hans and pay through Samsung Pay.

 

- Dinner time met up with wife, went into a Korean cafe and they told us to scan the QR code on the table where you place order to making payment all via the phone!!??  i input my card number detail (i actually have those info in my phone but each info was hide in different apps).

 

 

 

 

So i manage to survive 2 days without cash (wallet) for medical, transport, meals, movie, and shopping and thank god my phone battery can last whole day  [laugh]  [laugh]

Day 1 is surprising.

 

NUH doesn't accept cash?

 

And which cafe doesn't accept cash?


That is all.

NUH sport centre, there was a list of cashless payment available (anything you can think of from alipay, pay lah, samsung pay, apple pay, android pay.....). I didn't make noise or create a scene lah.

Actually now most of the time i use my apple pay, favepay and hardly use cash. But need to track spending and make sure the statement is right
Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

When I was at SGH ARC Clinic making payment thru Samsung Pay, the cashier stared at me like I was speaking a different language. She said must use card one, hp cannot insert into the machine. I told her same as pay wave. She stare back at me again. Then I just tell her to activate the terminal. I put my hp on it and the machine accepted and printed out my receipt. Cashier was totally amazed. [laugh]

I would say we are far behind China in term of cashless society. From road toll, super mart purchase, wet market, book store, and even street food, people just scan the QR code and payment will be via Wechat or Alipay. [thumbsup] One example below:

BTW, their wechat pay is equivalent to our PayNow, and they have using that for the past 5 years at least...

I try to use Apple Pay or credit card whenever possible.

Or pay via the merchant apps like Ya Kun, Toast Box, Kopitiam card etc.

Earn all the points and cash rebates 😬
