How to Clear Customs in Malaysia

Following my first overseas purchase that was being detained by custom in Malaysia, I decided to write this post to share my experiences on how to deal with them.

Note: This is a personal sharing of mine on how to deal with Malaysia Royal Custom for your detained or held items from overseas purchases. Hopefully this will be helpful to assist you to clear your items :) 

Signs to Look for - Your Items *MIGHT* be detained by customs

If you saw the following description on PosLaju tracking website such as 'Custom Inspection. High - value goods', there is a high chance that your item might be detained by the custom for import tax and sales tax. In that case, you would normally received a letter of detainment from them and is delivered by your trusty PosLaju mailman on the next day. In my case, I got the said letter on the next day from the website.

My Purchasing/Buying Experience from AmiAmi (Japanese Character & Hobby Online Store) for Pokemon TCGs and Items from Malaysia Using PayPal

Thought that I would like to share my first oversea purchase from the nation of the rising sun, Nihon or Japan!

I had to admit, being a young adult, having a hobby like CCG (collectables card games) is usually frown upon by parents. And that is so true in my case. Regardless, I earned my own money and my wallet answers to no one but myself, or at least that is the case for now.

Anyways, I might be the latecomers when I say that I am purchasing some Pokemon TCG Gaia Volcano/Tidal Storm (or also known as Primal Clash in English) Booster Boxes since it was released roughly one or two months back.

How to Link Maybank Debit Card (Visa/Mastercard) with PayPal for International/Overseas Purchase (Amazon, eBay...)

After successfully activated my Maybank debit card (MASTERCARD logo with Cherry image), or more commonly identified as Cherry card for PayPal I decided to write this up to assist anyone else that have the same desire as I did. 

Maybank Debit Card with Cherry logo. Mine was a MasterCard. I prefer Visa though but they ran out of it while I'm trying to upgrade from my previous ATM or Maybankard.

Note that this is a sum up writings of my experience trying to link my Debit card with PayPal. You may directly skip to the end of this article for the tldr (too long don't read) version :-P
