Citizenship was given to some 20,000 foreigners a year in the past two years, half the number of babies born here.

Malaysia Pen Shop Guide 2010

During my recently travelled (August 2010) to Malaysia capital Kuala Lumpur, I visited two popular pen shops among our fellow Singaporean and a few boutiques. The sales executive is not knowledgable as compare to those we have it here, and the services are not as friendly as I would like it to be.

Here are the shops details with no pictures which I visited. Hope this will help fellows pen users. If you come across any pen shop in Malaysia, do share the information with us to help us keep the list updated.

As we also belive it supporting the local retailors, the Malaysia pen shop is below expectation. Overall, I would give it a 4 out of 10 rating. The services at the boutique are much better.
