Purchase postage label at Malaysia

Purchased at Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

I've heard about postage label of Malaysia from another philatelic forum.
Try to find the machine this weekend, and I got it.

There is a PAM at Johor Bahru General Post Office.
PAM means "POS Automated Machine"
This machine like general ATM, but it accepts coins and banknotes only.

PAM allows you deposit SODA account or buy postage label.
(Or pay other bills)

There are five default face value labels.
0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 and RM1

No matter which value you choose, you have to buy 10 labels.
You cannot mix other value of labels.
(Minimum cost is RM3)

PAM only accept the previous series of banknotes. (Right)
If you insert the new plastic note, it does not work.
And please insert exact amounts, no change will be given.

The design of PAM is poor.
Postage labels will be cut and "fly" to the ground.
You'd better put your hand on the label output gate.

Receipt and postage labels.
The quality of printing is very poor.
Text strings aren't clear.

Affixed to an envelope, for international air mail.
0.3 * 4 = RM1.2
You can see the four labels occupied many areas of the cover.

I will try another PAM, hope I can get a better/clear one.
This is Johor Bahru General Post Office.
