Remember to drop by your local post office for the joint issue on Local Food on 17 October 2014.
Interestingly the Malaysian issue has the word Kuala Lumpur (location of the Philatelic Bureau) on the cancellation whereas in Hong Kong, the cancellation does not have the “location”.
Stamps: RM 1.40 X 4
Miniature Sheet: RM 5.60

Here is the Kajang post office:
Here are the covers:

Due to many questions on the status of MS on FDC, SODA account holders will only receive the stamp on FDC. There will not be an MS on FDC. I have some at very low prices if you want to complete your collection on Pos Malaysia official envelope (Kuala Lumpur cancellation only): http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/MS-FDC-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-First-Day-Cover-2014-MNH-Mint-/261633564712?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item3cea936028
