The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II stamp series.
This morning, I went to the General Post Office at Dayabumi Complex, Kuala Lumpur for the launch of a very beautiful new stamp series, The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
We queued for almost 4 hours!
The queue was so long that people had to queue in the sun outside of the building.
I reached there at about 8:30 am but the queue was already very long. I had to queue for about 4 hours to buy the stamps! Thankfully we arrived quite early because people who arrived 10 minutes after us had to queue in the sun. While waiting, I saw my big sister Kafah weeping and when I asked her why, she said that she felt dizzy. My mother took her away to find a seat and she fainted. But after a short while, she was okay. After that she waited for us in the office.
Below is the front side of the folder.
Stamps to mark the royal visit of Prince William and his wife to Malaysia.
Both stamps are RM 1.50 while the miniature sheet is RM 5.00. One of the of the stamps from The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is a replica of the 10 cents red coloured 1953 Malaya Selangor Queen Elizabeth II Coronation stamp. The other is of Prince William and his wife to mark their royal visit to Malaysia from September 13 to 15, 2012.
Fortunately at about 1:30 pm the post office received a new stock of the stamp sheets and we managed to buy some. Both stamp sheets are beautiful but I prefer the replica of the 10 cents red coloured 1953 Malaya Selangor Queen Elizabeth II Coronation stamp. The whole series of The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is very beautiful and I am so happy to be able to buy them. It is worth the very long queue.
