Unusual small business idea: tiny mobile post office

What can be better then having a business that brings joy to yourself and make your clients happy? The small business idea that I describe below is just perfect: catchy idea, low budget, interesting and unusual business!

wsps

The World’s Smallest Postal Service (WSPS) is a company founded by Lea Redmont.

She sets her tiny mobile post office in different cafes, restaurants and shops where clients and passers-by can write a small letter to their friends and relatives.

But this won’t be a simple note, Lea turns it into “world’s smallest letter”: it is transcribed on a miniature desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s initial pressed into it, packaged up with a magnifying glass in a glassine envelope, and finished off with a large wax seal.

I’m sure recipients are always delighted to receive such a chef d’oeuvre!

The Swimming Oranges and the Floating Bananas

The last day of Chinese New Year (its called Chap Goh Meh in Hokkien – a Chinese dialect) is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. For most Malaysian Chinese, they knew well of this certain ritual that happens every year on this day. Originated from Penang, Malaysia, this interesting ritual involves tossing tangerine/mandarin oranges or bananas by the singles into the pond or sea or river or any place with water in hope that their future partner will pick up their fruits.

And this year in Malaysia, it was the most happening event for the single men and women in more than 3 places in the state of Selangor itself.
Yes, they literally throw the tangerines and bananas into the pond. Like this:

How does it work, you may wonder. nst-2

Well, its pretty simple actually, single women writes their names, phone numbers and some messages on tangerine oranges while the men does the same on bananas. Some women will write names and phone numbers while the more expressive ones will write messages, draw cute smileys or perhaps even their star sign.Men are probably more straight-to-the-point, minus the mushy messages.“See you”? Maybe on the other side is “I hope you will find me”.

So after the writing and tossing, the fruit fishing starts! And boy, they are so well prepared! Some brought long poles with net to fish out the fruits! Some of them brought a small note book or phones so they could fish out a few oranges or bananas and jot down the necessary details on it. Then they toss the fruits back to the pond! How clever.

Longest Ear Hair Record Holder

Photobucket

A man in northern India has been recognized by Guinness World Records as having the world’s longest ear hair.

The tufts coming out of the man’s ears measured more than 5 inches when he set the record in 2003. The hair has now grown to nearly 10 inches. In fact, the hair is so long he has to shampoo and comb it. He was granted a certificate from Guinness to certify him as the record-holder.

However, he complained that too many people consider his feat foolish and said the Indian government isn’t treating him with the respect he deserves as a world record-holder.

So on the next Sunday morning few minutes before 11 a.m. all doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off evil……..Just when the! clock struck 11…

The part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system & plugged in the vacuum cleaner!!!!!!!!!!
