Stamp Fair In PJ

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.

Inaugural Stamps and Philately Exhibition At Muzium Negara

On 10 Feb, 2011 I went to a stamp 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.
