Very Old Malaya Stamps

The beautiful old Malaya stamps. Among them them are the King George V series, King George VI Straits Settlement- BMA series, the tiger head series, the mosque series and others.

On the day that I went to the Amcorp Mall Flea Market, we bought some stamp album sheets from Uncle Abdullah and he invited us to see his wonderful old Malaya stamps.

Uncle Abdullah has a large collection of old rare Malaya stamps.

He even has the Sungei Ujong Queen Victoria stamps.

The stamps were so beautiful and very, very expensive.

That was the first time I have seen most of the stamps.

It is very hard to get those stamps now.

Uncle Abdullah bought some of his very old Malaya stamps from England.

But I prefer my Olympics stamps because I am more interested in sports than history 🙂

And moreover, my Olympics stamps are more colourful with lots of flags on them.

Of all the stamps that I saw on that day, the one that I like the most is the orange 50 cents Juditial stamp (in the last picture below).

I collect stamps and I wish I could have the stamps one day 😐

The old Malaya stamps from the tiger series. The $2.00, $5.00 and S10.00 must be very expensive.
Another set of old Malaya stamps; I call these stamps the mosque series.
These Queen Victoria Malaya stamps are also very, very old and older than the tiger and the mosque series. This is the first time I saw the Sungei Ujong stamps(1881 to 1890).
More beautiful stamps from the Queen Victoria series(188i-1891).
The beautiful Judicial stamps that I love the most. They must be very old because they have Queen Victoria printed on them.

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.

An old postman bicycle.

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.
