New Year, New Job, New Note

Not me on the new job, as I am still working in this Organisation. ;)

I'd like to wish my bro Yeech all the best in his new job. After serving 7 years as a GUMY bear, he decided to up a notch & become a Care(ing) bear effective 2008. Don't worry, bro. Since the outlet where you are Care bear is closer to my home than when you were a GUMY bear, I can visit you more often for samples & freebies. :D

Also, I've received my copy of the special pack to commemorate the launch of the new RM50 currency banknote. The special pack was sold to the public from Boxing Day last year for RM60 at the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM)'s headquarters & its branches throughout the country. In it, you'll get an RM50 note that is mounted in a booklet with some info on the new currency note. 20 000 of the special packs were produced & from the information I heard, the stock at BNM HQ was exhausted by 3pm on Boxing Day itself. BNM branches may still carry some stock of the special pack though. Collectors & members of the public alike gave good response as besides the special pack being a limited edition keepsake, the 1st 50 million copies of the banknote features Malaysia's first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj at the historic declaration of Malaya’s independence and the logo of the 50th Anniversary of Independence on the reverse side.

I am sure this coming Chinese New Year, many will rush to get the new RM50 banknotes & likewise, many will be hoping to receive RM50 in their angpows. Hmm, now I gotta look for recently married Chinese friends & relatives & be extra nice to them. Too bad Yeech let the previous one go, else I can pow him for an angpow next month. Hrhrhr. :)

Till later, live long & prosper.


  1. Bro, 7 years laa.. Not 6... hehehe... Ehhem... this one, no freebies and samples. hehehhee...
    Thanks a lot for annoucing I'm still Single And Desperate. hahha... :p hmm... maybe it's time to find one... hehehe...

  2. Noted. I already corrected the blog posting.

    Since you are still single & desperate, I extend a prayer for you that being a Care(ing) bear now will yield better chances of getting a girl for yourself. ;)

  3. Not sure about the chances. hehehe... But, I certainly do hope so. hahaa.. :p
