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
Updated 17 October 2014:
The crowd was light today. The Miniature Sheet was too big but I can fit is horizontally. I was off to Kajang to get the cancellation. Kajan is the “Satay Town” of Malaysia.
Traffice was light heading to Kajang, however it was madness on the way back to KL.
Here is the Kajang post office:
Here are the covers:

I have a few sets listed: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Pair-Kajang-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-FDC-First-Day-Cover-2014-/361083886826? <Sold Out>
I have one where the Kajang name is in the dark area on the MS (reduced price): http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Pair-Kajang-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-FDC-First-Day-Cover-2014-1-/361084868381?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item541255d71d
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
For those who missed out the MS, here is the rock bottom price: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Miniature-Sheet-MS-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-2014-MNH-Mint-/261633561427?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item3cea935353

Kajang famous with Satay, how about nasi lemak?
Nasi Lemak is too generic and is spread out across Malaysia. I have not found “THE” place for nasi lemak.
May go to Kampung Baru, famous with Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa.
Thanks for the idea.
Malaysia First Day Chop on HK fdc – No Kuala Lumpur Words ?
Apparently from photos I have seen, there is no Kuala Lumpur on the HK joint FDC!
Ok. That means got different chop btw Hk and Malaysia – Local post office.
Thanks for the information.
There’s no this issue at Sandakan ;c Have anyone bought it?
I hope it arrives soon. I think there will be plenty of stocks. Not a hot item.
Is it just here the stamps haven’t arrive? Many people were waiting at the post office and came early. I really want this issue. Does that means it will be sell on Monday?
I think it will come. If not I will try and get a normal set for you.
The giant miniature sheet was sold out early in Seri Kembangan and UPM post offices. Funny thing about the Seri Kembangan post office is that they asked me to get the cancellation done in Kajang. Also found out that they don’t deliver much sets for small post offices, only 5 sets in UPM post office.
