Today's post is gonna be about this photo:
So on the 2nd of February 2015, I made my way to the JPJ branch over at Taman Jaya since it was a public holiday in KL.
When it was my turn, I went to the counter, gave the guy a passport photo of myself, my P licence, and MYR 150 since I wanted to renew the licence for 5 years.
This is the passport photo I submitted:
So the guy issued me my receipt, and after checking the passport photo and P licence to make sure they're mine, he told me to head over to a small counter where they process/print the new licences. And so I did.
Then when my name got called, I received this:
THAT'S MY LICENCE (MY NAME, MY ADDRESS, MY IC NUMBER, ETC), BUT NOT MY PICTURE.
In my original post, I did hashtag #mynamebutnotmypic.

However, there are some out there accusing me of being racist/ignorant, saying that the post was inconsiderate due to my lack of awareness that the guy in the picture might have been adopted or is a Chindian.
I'd like to clear the air:
Also, just as an FYI, Hui Min is generally a female's name. I have yet to meet a guy called Hui Min.
Now, to those who think I Photoshopped the licence...
Here's a screenshot my friend took on Snapchat (Thanks ah Sarah, now I scared to send you snaps liao coz you will screenshot one).
Notice the Snapchat timer and text banner? The crowd in JPJ's office in the background? I highly doubt anyone would bother Photoshopping all of that. It's just not worth the time and effort.
Anyway, I did request for a new licence, and JPJ was super efficient and nice about it. The guy at the counter admitted that it was a mistake and issued me a new one (this time with my photo!).
