I wasn't upset that I had just topped up the value of the card the day before, but more so that the card had the most adorable Stitch card sticker I got from Taipei 5 years ago. I couldn't find any of the same one on my subsequent trips.
Five long years....
The new card was fine.
Only that it had an orange side I really, really do not like.
People around me felt that the loss of the card was a sign for me to grow up.
I felt so too.
I'm, perhaps, a little too old to be carrying a Stitch EZLink card around. Even if I was so darn proud of it.
One day after mourning the loss of my Stitch, I remembered that I do have a lot of tapes.
I picked a few of my favourite washi tapes (I might have used the Cath Kidston one a little too much... It's on my gym lock, my HDD....) and started sticking over the orange side
The Cath Kidston always goes with the floral paper lace tapes from Daiso.
Oh.... I love washi tape.
In less than five minutes, my card is pretty again. :)
