I’ve seen this machine near the Hong Dae AREX Exit 3 & 4 gantry for a year or more by now. I was contemplating if I should make a personalised T-Money card for fun but I already have a T-Money card and I didn’t want to hold on to another one. Sure I go to Seoul frequently, but still, it doesn’t justify me owning 2 T-Money cards just because.
As fate would have it, I finally lost my T-money card on this recent trip to Seoul. I had just added ₩50,000 (~SGD61) to the card and at the point when I lost it, it had about ₩40,000 (~SGD49) in there. 😭
Thankfully, I found out about it way before I was due to head over to the Olympics Gymnasium for the Psy “All Night Stand” concert. I usually cut my time quite close so if I had found out how I lost my T-Money card when I was headed towards the concert, I would surely have been late for the concert.
Initially, I thought it was a film/sticker thing that they would paste over an existing T-Money card but no, they actually print your photo onto the card itself! No worries about it peeling off then; BUT for sure, over time, there is a chance of it fading out like the regular cards.
Here’s my new personalised T-Money card with my cute but annoying dog’s face:
You can actually add some text on the bottom left hand corner of the card but I decided to leave it blank because it felt a bit much to put my name on the card.
Anyway, shortly after I made this new personalised T-Money card, I found another T-Money card on the floor. LOL. So yes, I have 2 T-Money cards now. LOL. When I didn’t want to hold 2 cards but life insists that I need to have 2 of them. Oh well.
