Caveat Emptor!

Malaysians beware! There are more than one things to remember when you come back from overseas.

1. Bring your MyKad with you everywhere! A fine not exceeding 20,000 bucks apply if you're ever caught without it.

2. Distinguish between Sales and Marketing. If your prospective job description sales includes 'must have own transport', that means they want you to flog their products face-to-face.

3. Goods sold here are NEVER refundable. Never. So make sure when you buy something it's really what you want. You may exchange defective products but that's pretty much it.

4. EFTPOS (Electronic Funds Transfer at Point Of Sale) is available here in the form of Bankcard. But very few shops accept this as yet, so bring cash. Related to this, Public Bank now charges an annual fee of 8 bucks for your ATM card. Maybank restricts your transaction limit. Read the fine print! M'sian banks don't have Cirrus or Maestro enabled on their ATM cards, so if you want those facilities, keep your foreign bank account.

Did I say being your MyKad everywhere with you?
