They called back. Morning dress for the Polish ambassador. I did not tell them this would be my first.

I put my phone on silent for a while, and when I switched it back found that the Polish embassy had called. Probably business-related. I called back but got to an automated answering system in Polish. Basically, you don't call them. They call you.

I just had a brilliant idea.

One of the biggest problems in tailoring is the change of weight of the customer. The process of having a suit made takes several months --- about a year in the case of travelling tailors --- and the customer's body can undergo significant changes in this period.

I'm gonna put a weight scale in the shop. Weigh the bugger every fitting.

Why was the forum down for more than two weeks?

Basically, CIMB would not pay Invision Power Services, the host of this forum. It didn't matter if I tried to pay Invision directly with my card, or if I paid by way of PayPal. I also could not use my more than RM1k of paypal balance to pay Invision because paypal has a policy of not allowing you to use your balance. Paypal uses your balance to invest in assets which yields it a profit.

CIMB doesn't itself know that it keeps rejecting payment to Invision, even though CIMB keeps sending me the 6-digit OTP each time I tried. As far as CIMB is concerned, no payment request was ever made.

I tried solving the problem by opening an account with Public Bank. But apart from my IC, they wanted proof that I really lived where I said I live. I thought it was stupid---what does it matter? I also had no"proof" nor was I interested in showing them any. So I left and went to AmBank. I could open an account there with an IC and RM100.

I paid Invision through my brand new AmBank card.
