Sometimes, I suspect that I have the same problem as that tv character – Monk. I think I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OSD) to some extent.

For instance, before I retired, I would always make sure that everything on my table in the staff room was arranged neatly – so much so that some of my colleagues would sarcastically ask whether I had used a ruler and a protractor to arrange the piles of exercise books to make sure that they were 100% straight…and when somebody stood too near my table and disturb the order of things, I would be furious, to say the least.

I like to keep everything neat – even those bills that I would go to pay every month. I just cannot stand it when I ask somebody to pay and the bills come back crumpled and torn…like they had survived the two world wars or something. Likewise, when I take my worksheets for photocopying for my students to use in class, I would not want to fold them or anything. At such times, I find these hotel folders very handy.

One would be able to get these at most hotels where they keep the complimentary stationery for guests. I like this one from the Rajah Court Hotel in Kuching

Hotel folder 1

The hotel has changed hands, if I’m not mistaken, and has a different name now.

Of course, I have a lot from West Malaysian hotels, KL in particular…like this one from the Federal

Hotel folder 2

…or Bintang Warisan across the road…

Hotel folder 3

…where I had this nasi lemak double for breakfast…

So what do you all think? Do I have a problem or what? LOL!!!
