Do you have a stash of coins accumulated from god knows when? We had a bagful of coins but didn’t know what to do with it.  Apparently banks will charge a fee if you wanted to exchange it for notes or deposit into your account.

We then read online that AEON had what was called a My Syiling Machine at its Maluri, Cheras Selatan and One Utama branches. Being the nearest to us, we headed to AEON Maluri this morning armed with our bagful of coins.

Exchange for cash vouchers here
The coins came up to RM100 which we could exchange for cash vouchers at the customer service counter. Best of all, these vouchers have no expiry date!

This and CK Kopitiam Corner were our favorite haunt back in the day, and nothing much has changed (on the surface, at least). Cat tried the Loh Shee Fun; Brendan had the pan mee (as usual) while I sampled the curry mee.

It’s been a while since we’ve been here but the standards have dropped quite a bit. Apart from the curry mee (which gravy was thick and flavorful) Cat and Brendan did not enjoy their meals. Come to think of it, we used to come here for the chicken rice. Aiyah, how forgetful L
