Rejang Park in Sibu is one of the earliest housing estates in town. There is a commercial centre in this residential area where one can find a market, a number of shops, a traffic garden and there used to be a cinema but it had since closed down. There are a lot of eating places among the shops like the Million Cafe or this one where Philip enjoyed the claypot prawn noodles so very much…

…and there is even a little post office with only four counters – one for stamps, mails and such and the other three for payment of bills and other businesses.

I would drop by this post office quite regularly to pay my bills…and I had a post on it sometime ago. It was not air-conditioned then but it is now…and there are rows of chairs so people can sit and wait quite comfortably. I like going there during lunch hour as there will not be a lot of people and that was exactly what I did last Monday.

Well, something happened…and when I came home, I sent this email to Pos Malaysia about it:

Re. staff at Rejang Park Post Office, Sibu


I dropped by the aforesaid post office to pay my bills around noon today, 21st February, 2011.

The total amount was over RM500 and I passed the bills and the money to this Malay lady on duty over lunch hour at the counter. She promptly counted the money that I had placed in an envelope and when she discovered an excess of RM100, she immediately drew my attention to it and returned one RM100 note to me.

I must say that I am indeed extremely impressed by her honesty and integrity that certainly deserves praise and due recognition.

Thank you.

I received a very prompt reply from them in response to the above:

I certainly hope that they would do something in acknowledgement. She most certainly deserves a pat on the back for what she did.
