Umm, excuse me. They sure *do* exist in Malaysia... I learned about money
orders in high school!! We usually use money orders when transferring
large amounts of money physically, as cash is too cumbersome to keep track
of and too attractive for thieves (money orders are easier to keep out of
sight and out of mind since you don't have to keep big piles of paper
money and coins for the exact amount).
