Bank In Investment AS1M

I was trying to open a new account for the Amanah Saham 1Malaysia. I understand the availability is based on the race quotation. So I am not sure if there still units available for me to buy. I asked few times but it seem that the only way to know is to try my luck since the system are not able to display the remaining units available until you actually buying it.

Since I am planning to invest my money on something, I just trying my luck on any available until they might have. I was hoping they do have it. Few of the bankers did asked why I don't want to put it in the Amanah Saham Bumiputra. My only answer I could give to them - I reached the limit allowed.

With my ancient saving book (I have it since 2001), I approached the banker with all the forms needed to be filled in. I emptied out the units needed since I am not really sure the availability of it. Being me, I admit that I do have an ugly handwriting if I am lazy. So when she take a look at the withdrawal slip, she assume I wanted to invest with just RM130. So she cut the amount and wrote with a nicer penmanship. I pointed out that it was not the correct amount because she missed out few zeros and she repeatedly apologies after realising it. Her face was priceless. I guess I do still look like a kid since she didn't believe the amount I am putting in.

I was lucky as I managed to buy all the units I wanted. Phew!

Now let just wait and keep the money rolling.
