Gold Note Of Hope

TWO DAYS AFTER VALENTINE... we were window shopping at AEON Falim when we saw a crowd in one of the goldsmith shops in the mall.  No, there was no robbery, we were surprised that the shop was filled with people inside on this special evening.  On normal days, it is a common sight that the staff are looking out for customers or ushering them to come into their shop, but on this particular evening, all the staff were busy and had their hands full with the customers instead.  Out of curiosity, we approached the shop too... wondering if there were some free gift or what.... LOL...

We walked one round in the shop, no one was free to entertain us.. LOL.. "Ok, we come back later, I told my friends" and went for our groceries.  An hour later, we passed by the shop again, Poh Kong is the name and this time there was one lady staff who was finally available.  She told us that it is a normal sight during Chinese New Year that the chinese like to purchase gold, it signifies "prosperity" and that means "Ong" in cantonese.  No wonder... and another reason is that there is this Golden Note which is made of 0.1gm of pure gold, limited edition of our present reigning Prime Minister with his signature on it.  This Gold Note Of Hope is a token of appreciation to our PM's battle for reigniting Malaysia's hope, so it says in their website. 

The Golden Note of Hope cost RM160, out of which part of the proceeds will go to the Tabung Harapan .
At Poh Kong while stocks last... 
There is also a certificate for each Golden Note... 

It comes with a nice red box.... 
A perfect gift to give... 
And a nice souvenir to keep for life...

  1. Hmmm...the way things are going, yet to see any light at the end of tunnel. But RM160 only is cheap, not solid gold, I guess. Gold is so so expensive these days. Can't even afford a simple ring.

  2. That would be a good keepsake to invest. Someday it becomes a collector's item with appreciated value.

  3. Did you buy one? I bought one to give to a friend's niece who is a fan of the PM now as her birthday present.

  4. Youngsters nowadays prefer silver than gold, but gold is more valuable.
