I received a postcard from Australia. Sender is unknown.
Thank you for the postcard! I’ve no idea where you got my address from but I guess you bought shuffling CDs from me. However, it’s a little bit worrying to know that some readers here have my address.
Anyway, thank you for your support! Really appreciate it!
I saw this advertisement from Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore’s Stamp Catalogue.
This is the first time I see people putting photos of themselves on an unrelated advertisement.
So anyway,I paid them a visit today.
It was held at the 2nd Floor of Heritage Hotel, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. One should pay a visit there as its interior is of Victorian/Edwardian design.
Their elevator kicks asses as well. You have to open the door yourself and close it yourself! It’s like living in the early 1900s 😀
The fair was held in a medium sized room with stamps, coins and notes sprawled all over the place. The price is reasonable as well. Further, their service was excellent!
As for the variety of stamps, they have stamps all over the world and era. I even saw a Penny Red selling for RM12!
They also have an excellent collection of Japanese Occupation of Malaysia Stamps!
RM5600!!!! I gotta sell my ass for this!!
Japanese Occupation stamps. It’s written ‘Savings, the Japanese Government Malai (Malaysia)’
Coins & Notes. They even have Saddam Hussein’s notes.
The fair is held every month first Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 6pm daily. To all stamp lovers, pls pay a visit tomorrow!
Dad got these stamps for me from Thailand. What made it special is that it’s printed on velvet-like paper. Further, it smells of roses!!!!
I wish the internet has the technology to produce smell through some sort of codes. It does smell like roses!
2004 Christmas Edition United Kingdom.
The Royal Mail has unveiled two stamps showing Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles to mark their wedding.
The stamps will go on sale April 8, the date scheduled for their wedding in Windsor.
A first-class 30-pence stamp shows an informal close-up picture of the pair laughing.
They pose more formally in a 68-pence stamp, which is the most popular price for posting a letter overseas from Britain.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
To all lovely couples out there, enjoy being slaughted by opportunist. However, a homecook meal or homemade gift would definately make V day even more special.
To all single people out there, don’t feel bad if you dont have a date. Your time will come. Think of all those poor guys who have to pay few hundred dollars for a crummy meal.
V day must also be celebrated with music. Music will light up the atmosphere and make you remember the V day you had when that particular music is played again.
To those suffering from a heartbreak, listen to 4PM – Sukiyaki, it would make you feel like jumping off a building.
The song Sukiyaki was originally sang by a Japanese singer by the name Kyu Sakamoto.
He was born in Kawasaki, Kanagawa prefecture. His most popular song, “Ue o muite aruko” (I Look Up When I Walk; Sukiyaki in the West)was a hit in Japan and topped the Billboard pop charts in the United States in 1963 where it was called “Sukiyaki.” Western DJs needed a song title that was at once easily pronounceable and associated with Japan. So, “Sukiyaki” was it, even though the word is not mentioned in the song.
In 1985, Sakamoto was killed in the crash of Japan Airlines flight 123.
In 16 March 1999, Japan Post issued a stamp commemorating the song ‘Ue o muite arukou’.
