Once upon a time, in the 1490s there was a man named Hanianon.
He was a knight and lived in Calovinia.
He liked adventures.
The Jupron was the enemy of Calovinia.
King Antire the 20th of Jupron ordered his knights to destroy the castle of Calovinia.
And so King Sakiorone of Calovinia ordered some of his armies to defend the castle with their best skills while the others were sent to attack the Jupron’s castle.
Sir Hanianon led 20 heavy cannon, 500 cavalry archers and 49 other skirmishers to attack Jupron.
So, off they went to the castle of Jupron to attack their enemy.
But they were defeated and they had to retreat.
They were left with only 5 skirmishers, 1 heavy cannon and 30 cavalry archers.
As soon as they reached Calovinia, they fought to defend their castle together with the other troop.
The battle was over and the Calovinian managed to defeat their enemy.
Jupron went to Zolaphat to ask for help.
Meanwhile, Sir Hanianon went to Torkiy for help.
Torkiy send the powerful Janissary while and Zolaphat send Fusiliers.
The Calovinian defeated the Jupron’s armies and destroyed their castle but the King Antire the 20th of Jupron managed to run away to Cinra.
On March 21, 2012, Pos Malaysia issued a new set of special issue stamp series named Underwater Life.
I went to the General Post Office at Dayabumi Complex, Kuala Lumpur that morning to buy the stamps and the miniature sheets.
The stamps are so beautiful.
The stamp artist used water colour to paint the pictures.
And I also got the artist’s signature 🙂

Atuk Professor Hashim told me that Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin is a real stamp designer!
Among the stamps that he designed are the ‘Silver Jubilee Of The Reign Of His Royal Highness Paduka Seri Sultan Azlan Muhibbiddin Shah Sultan Preak Darul Ridwan‘, ‘Garden Flowers National and State Definitive Series’, ‘Royal Institution Special Issue’, ‘Agong‘, ‘Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah‘, ‘State Emblems‘ and ‘Royal Headgear‘.
Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin is a great photographer.
For the ‘Garden Flowers National Definitive Series’, he used the flowers that he had in his garden except the water lilies.
The stamps that he designed are very beautiful and colourful.
I wish that one day I can design stamps too.
I really enjoy meeting Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin.
I am a stamp collector and I am very lucky to be able to meet a great stamp designer!
