Pos Malaysia’s Underwater Life
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 🙂
On March 8, 2012 Pos Malaysia launched the Malaysian Antarctic Research Programme/ Program Penyelidikan Antartika Malaysia special issue stamp series.
A Visit To Pos Malaysia at Dayabumi
On March 8th, 2012, we went to General Post Office at Dayabumi Complex, Kuala Lumpur.
That day the Malaysian Antarctic Research Programme/ Program Penyelidikan Antartika Malaysia special issue stamp series was launched.
The stamps are very beautiful.
We bought a few sets of stamp sheets from the series and a lot of the other miniature stamps and stamp sheets from other issues.
I love to walk around the Stamp Gallery and look at the colourful stamps and paintings.
Meeting A Wonderful Stamp Designer
Last two days I met Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin Raja Yaacob at UNISEL.
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‘.
(Please click here to for my post on Pos Malaysia New Issue: Institusi Diraja/Royal Institution).
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!
Pos Malaysia New Issue: Institusi Diraja/Royal Institution
On December 12, 2011 Pos Malaysia issued a new set of special issue stamps – Institusi Diraja or Royal Institution.
I went to the Daya Bumi Post Office in Kuala Lumpur to buy the new stamps.
They are very beautiful.
The 60 sen, 80 sen and 90 sen each has photo of different Royal Regalia of Malaysia.
Here are the stamps:
The 60 sen Gandik Diraja or the Royal Tiara stamp shows the tiara of the Her Majesty Raja Permaisuri Agong of Malaysia.
The 80 cents Pending Diraja or the Royal Waist Buckle stamp shows the royal belt of His Majesty Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia.
The 90 cents singgahsana or the throne stamp shows the royal throne used for special official royal ceremonies.
Stamp Fair In PJ
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 bought beautiful stamps from Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah.
Uncle Haji Mohamed Abdullah is a stamp dealer from Penang (Pulau Pinang).
