Tokyo (Day 8 to 13) : Sugeeeehhh…


(The missing corner credit card)


I used my credit card a couple of times when I travelled to Japan but this ordinary credit card returned back to me with unexpected yet an interesting feedback. This is what happened. 

After some long thoughts, I have decided to purchase the Nikon DSLR at one of the biggest electronic store, Sofmap. When I showed my credit card, they were so astounded and surprised that they never seen a curved cornered credit card, let it be a young or an old sales person that attended me. Twice I used it, twice I heard “sugeeehh” which roughly translated as awesome. They held up the card, stared for a moment and showed it to his colleague before finally he realised the customer (me!) was still standing right in front of him, waiting for the bugger to complete the transaction. After the processing, they took a final look before handing the famous credit card back to me.

I wonder what happens if I use the National Bank Mini Visa card the next time I travel there again.
