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!

On Tuesday we went to Shah Alam to meet Atuk Professor Hashim Hassan at the university where he teaches.
The name of the university is Universiti Industri Selangor or UNISEL.
Atuk Professor Hashim is a lecturer, an artist and a stamp collector.
Over there I also met Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin Raja Yaacob, the Dean of the Faculty of Industrial Art and Design, UNISEL.
Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin is also a stamp designer!
They took us to a computer room where I also saw lots of Apple computers.
There we met Uncle Ibrahim Bujal who showed us cool stuffs that can be done on the computer.
I already knew how to do some of the things that Uncle Ibrahim showed me but there are some that I don’t know.
I now know that we can make our own website easier by using Adobe Flash Professional.
I have lots of fun and Atuk Professor Hassan gave me the books that he wrote, ‘Ideas For Logo Design’, part 1 and part 2.
That is great because the books give me ideas of how to make my companies’ logos.
Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin invited us for lunch at the Bouquet Garni and the food was really good.
I want to thank Atuk Professor Hassan, Uncle Professor Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin and Uncle Ibrahim for the presents, the tasty lunch and the wonderful time.
My 9th Birthday
February 13, 2012 was my 9th birthday.
Anyway on February 11, my father made a surprise and gave me the first birthday present – a gamepad!
We celebrated my birthday on February 12 because my father was going outstation on February 13.
On February 13, I celebrated my birthday again with my mother and my big sisters 🙂 🙂 😉
I got lots of presents from my family 🙂
I received a very old Great Britain Seahorse Stamp and a Penny Red from my mother, a very big stamp album from my father with some sports stamps and another album from my mother.
My big sister Kaman gave me a Chuggington Wilson and a green whiteboard marker while my big sister Kashah gave me a storybook, a folder with some stamps and a Japanese Dictionary.
I also received a fancy scissors set (those that can cut in zig-zags and other fancy designs), some stamps and a notebook from my big sister Kafah.
My mother also gave me a bottle of cologne, a Chuggington Brewster, 2 new Malaysian 20 sens coins, a file and lots and lots of stamps including some real 3D stamps.
I also received a badminton racket, shoes and sandals.
And yesterday, the new Indiana Jones, Mr. Rupert Mann gave me an Indiana Jones hat and his friend Thomas gave me some mint Australian stamps!
I think this is my best birthday ever because I received so many cool presents since February 11 until February 15, 2012 and there were so many wonderful surprises too!
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.
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 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.
My 8th Birthday
Today is my birthday.
I am very happy to be 8!
Aunty Selina sent me a cute E-Card from Maryland, USA and I also get E-Cards from Kaman and Kashah.
I also received 5 birthday cards.
I get Abang Muhammad’s card and birthday present from Chicago this morning because Kafah forgot to collect the mail yesterday 🙂
All together I get about 35 birthday presents and 249 pieces of stamps.
I am very happy because I get a stamp album and 132 beautiful stamps to start my stamp collection from my mother.
Abang Muhammad sent me 34 USA mint stamps, 15 other stamps were from Pak Cik Amin, about 6 stamps from Kaman and a stamp from Kashah.
Kaman also gave me a Malaysian mint stamp.
I also get a ‘Maisto’ Assembly Line Enzo Ferrari from my father!
I can assemble the beautiful yellow Ferrari myself because it is mine 🙂
I also get 2 ‘Hotwheels’ cars and a DIY metal plane from my sisters.
Other presents are 3 sheets of colourful stickers, lots of nice books, a set of colouful pens and lots of other wonderful things.
And I also started my silat class today 🙂
We had a tasty Domino’s pizza birthday dinner and my mother promised me a belated birthday cake.
I hope to get more stamps for my collection
I’m starting a new hobby – stamp collecting.
I want to collect stamps because stamps are very colourful and beautiful.
We can learn about history, geography, animals, plants and all kinds of other things from 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 🙂
