Inaugural Stamps and Philately Exhibition At Muzium Negara

On 10 Feb, 2011 I went to a stamp exhibition.

The exhibition was held at the Muzium Negara (National Museum), Kuala Lumpur.

My sister Kafah and I on the way to the exhibition hall.

There were lots of stamps at the exhibition.

Over there, I saw the Penny Black and other stamps with picture of Penny Black.

Penny Black was the world’s first adhesive postage stamp.

Since the theme of the exhibition was ‘World of Flora and Fauna’ there were mostly flowers, plants and animals stamps at the exhibition.

The stamps were beautiful and colourful.

I love Penny Black the most because Penny Black was the first stamp in the world.

There were lots of stamps and and things that are related to the postal service at the exhibition.

There were also very old mailbox, old weighing scales, an old postman bicycle, old postmark machine and other things related to the postal service in the past.

And I also saw the longest stamp in Malaysia.

We spent almost 3 hours at the exhibition.

I enjoyed myself at the exhibition because I could see lots and lots of beautiful, old and new stamps from all over the world.

Stamp Collecting

A nice stamp collection. I wish I can collect all of them one day.

I’m starting a new hobby – stamp collecting.

I want to collect stamps because stamps are very colourful and beautiful.

These train stamps are beautiful.

We can learn about history, geography, animals, plants and all kinds of other things from stamps.

Flowers stamps.

But first I would need a stamp album and a stamp tong.

Then I’ll need the stamps.

I can buy the stamps or ask for some stamps from my parents, my sisters and my friends.

I hope I can get a stamp album and a few stamps to collect as my birthday present 🙂

Penny Black is the world's first stamp.
