The story of 555 notebook

This simple, unassuming 555 notebook is certainly an integral part of our childhood growing up in Malaysia.

Before computers came into existence, many of us used these notebooks to record transactions, tontine money (which is illegal), appointments, phone numbers, birthdays, and other essential reminders. One notable significance is when moneylenders come hounding while waiving it at the business owners to pay off their debts.

This 555 notebook is truly a Malaysian thing. It means different things to different people. It is interesting to see how this simple notebook resides in many pockets many years ago, and it has faithfully contained our dreams, hopes, and struggles to make a living.
