Types of Stamps in Malaysia

In Malaysia, there are 3 types of stamps:
(1) Commemorative stamps
(2) Definitive stamps
(3) Special stamps

Malaysia’s Commorative stamp commorating the SEA Games.
Commemorative stamps are stamps designed to commemorate a particular event

Malaysia’s latest definite stamp.
Definitive stamps are stamps mainly for the everyday payment of postage. They often have less appealing designs than commemoratives. These are your usual Malaysian palm oil stamps. I usually throw them into the rubbish bins. And those plans to buy stamps for me, please, please, don’t buy me definitive stamps. They belong to the rubbish bin (although some experts may differ).

Special stamps in Malaysia are stamps issued to represent uniqueness of a the country.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commision has set up a guideline for the issuance of stamps in Malaysia. The said guideline can be downloaded here (In Malay language only)
It’s quite an interesting piece to read. It is noted that for Special Stamps, any prominent figures (except for the Sultan and Agong) therein must be, among others, Malaysian and is dead. If I’m not mistaken, USA has the same rule as well.

Recently, Malaysia issued stamps commemorating the Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

Malaysian women and food. YUMMY!!
During the launch of the stamps, 2 of my colleagues followed me to the launch. They were pretty amazed with the design. One of them said,
“Wow, I didn’t know Malaysia has such nice stamps!”.
Me: 😀
Then she added,
“You damn weird la, collect stamps. I’m going to tell my boss”

Office Romance / Management Lesson

Frank_omatic wanted to have sex with a girl in his office, but she belonged to someone else…
One day, Frank_omatic got so frustrated that he went up to her and said, “I’ll give you a $100 if you let me screw you. But
the girl said NO.
Frank_omatic said, “I’ll be fast. I’ll throw the money on the floor, you bend down, and I’ll be finished by the time you
pick it up.”
She thought for a moment and said that she would have to consult her boyfriend… So she called her
boyfriend and told him the story.
Her boyfriend says, “Ask him for $200, pick up the money very fast, he won’t even be able to get his pants down.”
So she agrees and accepts the proposal.
Half an hour goes by, and the boyfriend is waiting for his girlfriend to call.
Finally, after 45 minutes, the boyfriend calls and asks what happened.
She responded, “The bastard used coins!”
Management lesson: Always consider a business proposal in its entirety before agreeing to it and getting
p.s. so clever one, Frank_omatic!

Missing Dogs

[Since the theme this week is DOGS, not CATS. ;D]
This is Bonny.

This is Daxxx.

Last month, a friend and her family were car-jacked on the highway to Penang from KL. Their car, belongings and money were taken. They asked to keep the dogs but the hijackers were adamant about taking the dogs as well.
However, they are wondering if the dogs may have been released by the bastards or sold somewhere.
Details are vague, though they do hope they can recover the dogs.
Any ideas? Do contact us. It’s a long shot, but it doesn’t mean we’re not here to try and help. 😉

Purina One

‘Elaine’s’ company just organised some sort of promotion for Purina One (New premium dog food from Nestle). The said dog food has just been launced recently.
In this promotion, there is one 30 day-challenge contest. You can find out more about Purina One from the website @
Also, tune in to Mix FM or MY FM in the morning breakfast timebelt starting 9th April 2007.
No, I’m not getting paid for this promotion, just helping ‘Elaine’ out. Some prominent bloggers are involved in promoting this product. I heard that one blogger actually said,
“Yes, I have 2 dogs. But I don’t give a damn about them”. LOL
Many years ago, I had a dog. She was with us for few years until one day, she disappeared. 🙁

Years later, I was told that she was killed in a car accident and my parents kept her death a secret to me >.< At the moment, I do not have a dog. But I have a cat 😀
Few months ago, my colleagues and I were having dinner after a heavy drinking session.
Female Colleague (“FM”): So where are you going after this?
Me: I think I’m going to go home to feed my cat.
FM: CL, do you know that sounds DAMN TURN OFF???
Me: ….
Owning a dog is sexier, I guess.

Wrong Number

The other day i sent a sms to my friend to wish him happy birthday:
From me:
Happy Birthday! Many many happy returns and hope you haven’t been drunk celebrating! Bimbobum.
His reply (a few minutes later):
Where are you working now?
My reply:
At XYZ company still! But am on leave today, so I just woke up.
His reply:
Wow, so nice, just woke up huh! you must be excited…
My reply:
Wow back! you reply very fast! excited about what??
His reply:
Fast? Maybe because i use both hands to type… so what are you doing today?
My reply:
Dunno. Chill a bit, i guess. did the gang celebrate your birthday last night? a lot of parties?
His reply:
Haha. That’s for me to know and for you to find out.
Wah, at that instant, I felt that he was being obnoxious! I was just being polite asking about birthday celebrations, why was he being so defensive, seeing how we were OK sort of close! So I stopped sending him messages and went on with my day.

Speedzone @ KL Tower – 7.4.2007

The last time I went to a rave was probably on New Years Eve. It’s been a while. I must thank MyPartners Communications (especially Xaviera & Kimberly) for providing us with the free tickets, if it’s not for them, this awesome night wouldn’t happen for me.

There were probably more than 7000 people who attended this event as pre sale tickets amounting to 4000 were sold out few days before the event. Those who didn’t managed to secure pre sale tickets had to come early to line up. And those who came late without tickets were barred from entering the KL Tower compound. Just at the entrance, lies one huge banner saying. “Tickets sold out!”

He’s Not the One

I was eagerly gushing about the boyfriend to my mother, sister and brother the other day, excited that he was going to whisk me away for a romantic holiday. While my mother and sister put on their make up at the dressing table, I continued to gush on about him being sweet and extremely attentive, and most of all, I felt like he was THE ONE.
My mother, sister and brother were rather quiet and not very responsive. Occasional grunts and ‘mmhmm’s’ were the only signs that they were barely paying attention to me.
After gushing on for about half hour to a passive audience, I finally blew my top and screamed at them.
“What is wrong with you people?! Here I am, so happy about being back together with him, and you guys cannot even be happy for me?!”
It was then my mother decided to tell me the reason behind their passiveness. Upon visiting a fortune teller, it was told that getting back together with this ex-boyfriend was a mistake. He was just using me for evil purposes and should we actually get married, we would not last long. It would be a cold marriage where he’d have a mistress and I would be left alone at home, clueless.
“You have to break off the relationship NOW. Don’t go on that holiday with him, or you will never escape.” my mother advised me.
It felt like the beginning of a horror story.

Wait a minute.
Why this ex-boyfriend? What fortune teller?
F*cking hell. It was just a bloody nightmare I had last night! Of all people, I dreamt of my ex??
FYI, I still adore my crush like mad, despite the distance. ;P
And why are you still reading this post? Aren’t you supposed to be at William’s tonight for the gathering?! GO!!! 😉

Road Rage

What is ‘road rage‘? There is no fixed definition, but the mere acknowledgement of the phrase brings to mind what YOUperceive to be road rage.
It usually involves aggressive behaviour on the road and an act of violence, but does the intention to cause hurt become an important element to be considered?
Rude gestures, insistent honking, tailgating, and running other drivers off the road are a few examples. Should you be in the position of the victim, you’d be pissed mad, right? But what gives YOU the right to be the bully, then?
AAM merely explains road rage as “an incident whereby a motorist makes another motorist angry. An angry driver, when provoked resorts to violence.”
It could be classfied as a mental disorder in the United States, they’re still deliberating on that.
Sometimes I think it boils down to stupidity and the low IQ the driver has. Sure we get angry whenever some idiotic driver before us drives at 10 km/h when we’re in a rush, or cuts into our lane and almost driving us off the road in the process.
