Free Meal

I remember the first time when I got my first handphone. It was given by my dad a few days before I started university. Just before my parents were about to leave me, far far away from home (I studied in Melaka), dad handed me a box.

“Here, you’ll need this”.

It was a Nokia 3310 (no smartphone at that time ok).

Boy, was I happy. I felt like a grown up. I had my own handphone!

I spent the next few days playing around with my new baby. Dad got me a postpaid plan so I did not have to worry about credits and stuff. I sms-ed my friends, downloaded ringtones and picture messages every single day. So cool to have your own phone!

And then the bill came – to my dad, of course. 5 pages long! I was shocked (and scared, haha). I didn’t know ringtones would cost that much! I only downloaded like 20, I think. Pffft.

Let’s just say, my dad wasn’t happy at all and he decided to teach me a lesson by switching my postpaid plan to prepaid. He only provided RM50 top-up a month; pandai-pandai la kau berjimat guna. It could be worse – he could have taken away my handphone! But he did not.

But still, it was hard at first. I was always worried about how much credit I had left. Sometimes I even had to cut down my meal expenses and eat express noodles instead, just so I can buy extra top-up credit.

uMobile came up with something that I think students especially, would appreciate.




They’re having a promotion where you can redeem free Mamee Express Cup (curry flavour) and Revive Isotonic drink when you purchase RM50 top-up. Why didn’t they have this kind of promo when I was a student?! Sheeesh.



Redeeming it is easy too. Just go to any 7-Eleven outlet and present your uMobile top-up card at the cashier.




IMG_7936Make sure you have topped up your prepaird first before redeeming it.

You can also redeem a bottle of Revive Isotonic when you purchase RM30 top-up credit.

This promotion is valid until 31st August 2014. For more info, you may log on to their website at
