It's Never Too Late To Get A Stressed-Out Dad a Present

Reporter Desireee Tresa Gasper writes on the Malaysian Star website, "The common Father's Day gift is a shirt, tie, perfume, pen and souvenirs. But the trend has changed. Children are now encouraging their fathers to take up the traditional stamp collecting hobby in order to help these stressed-out men keep their worries away. To give them a head start the children have bought their fathers stamp collection kits which comprised stamps, an album, and tweezers, among others."

C.B. Cheah, owner of DS Philatelic, a stamp retail shop, says children buy the kits as gifts for their fathers. He's quoted as saying, "“After being introduced to stamp collecting, many of them are now addicted to it and find that it does help them to release stress."
