Some Things I Should Be Able to Buy Online in Malaysia

Online auction site aren’t very big in Malaysia. As far as I know, other than and eBay Malaysia, the others have died a slow death. But I suppose there aren’t many interesting stuff to be found on sale there, other than the usual second hand electronic items.

But, hey, here are some items I’d LOVE to see put up on sale online here in Malaysia!

A piece of roti canai miraculously bearing the image of Ayah Pin (Sky Kingdom) or Ustaz Ashaari Muhammad (of Al-Arqam fame). (Starting bid – RM 4.99)

Complete collection of vintage multi-coloured Toong Foong bus tickets from 1985-1988 era (from 40sen to RM1.20) in pristine condition, each with 2 puncher holes. (Starting bid RM 488.88)

Blurry 4-minute long video camera recording of alleged aliens landing in the backyard of Kampung Pandan house. Green, 3-foot tall aliens are seen to be stealing rambutans from tree in backyard and abducting house-owner’s pet dog into spaceship. Video verification still under investigation by MUFON. (Starting bid RM 574,0552)

Handwriting on Mahmood’s Nasi Kandar restaurant napkin, saying “Eh, Lim, can pay this time round, aa? Forgot to bring wallet” (the rest is illegible) allegedly written by Kxxxxx Sxxxx, opposition MP for xxxxxxxx (according to seller of item, who wishes to remain anonymous). (Starting bid RM 1000)

Undated photo of last minibus No.12 entering depot at Old Town, before official phasing out by government. Photo is unclear, but driver in picture said to be Maniam ‘Schumacher’ Pillai, the legendary bus minibus driver, 24 years on the job (said to be never once late). (Starting bid RM1.00)

Two-headed cicak (common house lizard) preserved in jar of formaldehyde. Caught by Tompok, the owner’s cat in Felda Sg. Rimbunan, Pahang. (Starting bid RM 254.56)

Hello Kitty’ alarm clock, runs on one AA battery, (bought from SS2 pasar malam) which chimes 13 times every hour. No scientific explanation available. Said to be possessed by a Malaysian poltergeist. Strangely, chiming stops after battery is removed. Owner claims the eyes on Hello Kitty moves at midnight, but observations proved inconclusive. (Starting bid RM 9.50)

Alleged picture of XXXXXXX (famous Malaysian dangdut singer), without make-up, entering Michael & Guys Hair Styling Saloon, Jalan Imbi taken on camera phone. Singer’s publicist has refused to comment (Starting bid RM 100)

  • I have a collection of VERY old coins which my mom and my grandma kept. If I'm not mistaken, I can earn AT LEAST RM60 from one coin. Kaching! Now I know what to do if I go bankrupt one day (but of course, must make sure no one knows bout my old antic coins) =P
