Explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused more serious disaster to Japan after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

At least 10,000 people were killed in the earthquake and tsunami disasters.

This is the world’s most serious nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986.

Nuclear power plant is a place where people produce electricity.

But nuclear radiation is very, very dangerous.

It can kill human, animals and plants and it can also caused cancer.

It could cause a big disaster and the effect will last for a long, long time.

This is the worst nuclear disaster in Japan after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945.

Stamp Fair In PJ

15 03 2011

A 5 cent stamp from 1965 Malaysian Orchids Definitive Series.

There was a stamp fair in Petaling Jaya, Selangor on March 12 and 13, 2010.

The fair was held at the Perpustakaan Komuniti Petaling Jaya or Petaling Jaya Community Library.

I went there on March 12 and went there again on March 13.

There were a lot of stamp dealers at the stamp fair.

I was looking at the beautiful stamps.

I bought beautiful stamps from Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah.

Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah is a stamp dealer from Penang (Pulau Pinang).

Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah was explaining some interesting facts about stamps.

There was a stamp display by the Philatelic Society Of Malaysia.

On the first day of the stamp fair, I won a lucky draw.

The prize was two first day covers from Pos Malaysia (Malaysia Postal Service).

When it’s time to go home, Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah gave me a set stamps of Lady Diana.

The stamps shows photos of Lady Diana’s visits to different countries.
