An elderly uncle in Kluang, Johor found the most convenient way to register at any location without the need of a smartphone

With standard operating procedures (SOP) still in place under the Movement Control Order (MCO), everyone has to register themselves before entering a premise.

It is easy for people with smartphones to use MySejahtera, while those with no smartphones will have to handwrite their information in logbooks provided.

However, according to China Press Johor, 80-year-old Gan Hwee Loon, hailing form Kampung Sungai Sayong, found a quick and convenient way around both of that.

He has simply been checking in to places with a stamp that has his name and phone number on it.

Gan told the Chinese daily that he made a stamp mostly because of his poor eyesight

He said that firstly he owns a simple handphone so he is not able to scan the codes to check in.

Furthermore, his aging eyes made it very difficult for him to write every time he visits a place. And he did not want to bother people for help every time he went out.

So, he spent the best RM20 ever and ordered a stamp

"I bring it around with me all the time now, doesn't matter if it is to go eat, drink tea, or even shopping. I just need to press the chop gently on the logbook and carefully close it again," he said.

 "It is very convenient and time-saving."
