My brother came home with a new MYR50 note today. He was all excited that my father got curious.
"Is that made of plastic?" the old man asked.
We weren't sure, we said.
Then started to laugh and told us his "adventure" of trying to dry a wet MYR5 note. It is normal practice for us to use a hot clothes iron to dry a wet paper note.
One not-so-fine day, the cash in his pocket got wet from the rain. The usual paper notes would get all easily torn up if we didn't dry it quick. Totally oblivious to the fact that the MYR5 was made of plastic, my father took to ironing it and this is what happened.........
Even the face of the Sultan didn't look happy.... x-))
