This post is up after Mitsuki requested it…

It happened during the trip to Malacca…

It was during the 2nd day of the trip…

CharYong and me were waiting for Mitsuki to come out of her work place and while she was walking towards us

This monk approached her…

Even have the photo some more…

~The case of the cheater and the cheated…~

According to Mitsuki… The monk approached her… Pass a prayer tag to her and something else which is holy to her… And said that those were gifts for her…

And then he asked for Mitsuki to write down her name on a book he was carrying.. Mitsuki being quite a religious girl did just that… And then the monk bring out his intention… He wants Mitsuki to donate money to the building of a Guan Yin statue at Tapah or somewhere… He showed Mitsuki the contents of the book where others had donated RM50 or even RM 100 to the cause… So Mitsuki brought out her purse and proceed to take out an RM10 to give the monk… The monk took the money and then tried to influence Mitsuki to donate more cause its supposed to be for a noble cause… And when Mitsuki refused he somewhat snatched the more valuable gift he gave Mitsuki and move off…

And that when Mitsuki noticed that she may have been cheated…

Seemed to have ruined her mood a bit… She kept on complaining throughout lunch to CharYong and me…

And so that’s the end of Part 1 of the cheater and the cheated…

Now for Part 2

After lunch and after Mitsuki went back to her work place… Me and CharYong was burning our time away after shopping at the food court… When we noticed that Monk-Cheater around asking for donations again…

CharYong straight away ask me whether we should cheat him back or not…

And out of the blue (And I know this ain’t the correct thing to do), I agreed.

So when the monk came to our table.. He did the same as what he did to Mitsuki… He handed out two of those prayer tags to me and CharYong.

And I ask what was it for… And he said those are gifts… And I made note that he mentioned it was gifts…

And then after we accepted those tags… He bring out his book and ask me to put down my name and say that this is a donation campaign for a Guan Yin statue in Penang (Note the change in place where he said the statue was at) And we chit-chatted a bit with him telling him that we didn’t heard of any statue in Penang being built… And he kept insisting there was…

And ultimately… I drop the bottom line and said, I am not interested in donating… And automatically his hand reached out for the prayer tags which he gave us… And that’s when we stopped him and said… These were gifts remember???! And he started grumbling a bit… But we didn’t let go of those tags… And after a bit of grumbling he moved off…

So after that, I’m quite sure we quite ruined a bit of his day… And perhaps saved a few more innocent people from taking those ‘tags’…

Gave the tags to Mitsuki when we met her since I don’t need it… And it cheered her up a bit…

So here’s a lesson to all those potential cheaters out there…

‘If you don’t like the taste of your own medicine, then don’t cheat other people’

 

And that concludes the story of the cheater and the cheated…

-The End-
