Most people might be able to relate to this scenario: you’ve just had a fun night out with your friends and have finally reached home, ready to wash up and hit the sack.

Suddenly, your phone beeps and you glance wearily at the screen, almost too tired to reply to the text.

“Hey guys, don’t forget to transfer me money for the food and drinks just now! The total cost is S$XX each.”

At this point, your response would probably go two ways. Either you:

  1. Switch apps from Telegram to PayLah! to transfer the money you owe to your friend, albeit with groggy eyes and a slight groan
  2. Completely disregard the message, telling yourself that you’ll transfer the money tomorrow or another day
