The Panda-monium Day
February 25, 2015 was truly a Panda-monium Day, as philately and panda enthusiast rushed to General Post Office around Malaysia for the International Cooperative Project On Giant Panda special issue. This will be the last special issue for the month of February 2015, the next issue will be out on April 2015.
While Kuala Lumpur GPO was very lively, things are pretty laid back here in Kota Kinabalu GPO. Too bad I didn’t take some pics at that time, I arrived a bit late and the line was pretty long already. This time thanks to my angpow money, I managed to get a good amount of stamps, miniature sheet as well as the first day cover.
The featured pandas, Xing Xing and Liand Liang, note that the stamp sheets still bear the old Pos Malaysia logo.
I truly didn’t expect the miniature sheet to have this special texture on it, it was worth my RM8! This is a gem for Pos Malaysia philately collectors, I wonder if the next issue can beat this cool design. 😀
The First Day Cover (FDC) are nicely designed, they have the new Pos Malaysia logo printed on the cover. Why the irregularities eh Pos Malaysia?
I bet nothing can beat this cute postmark ever this year, let see how it goes. 🙂
The info sheet that comes with the FDC. Anyway, have you got yourself a few copies of this collection?
Now is the time to send the postcards!
