Updated 19 February 2014: Brinchang of Rose Valley

The next issue is…. Roses! Series 2 that is and on Valentine’s Day! Coincidence?

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with our true love of philately! 🙂

This time the issue will comprise of set of stamps 60 sen, 70 sen and RM 1.20 and a miniature sheet with a heart  shaped stamp (with fragrance!) at a price of RM 5.00.

2014 Roses Series 2 1

2014 Roses Series 2 2

So gentleman, as our daily cost of living is going up this year, perhaps it is better to give fragrant MS roses than the actual ones! This MS rose appreciates in value too!

Oh, yes the concordant cover collectors…I think Brinchang Post Office will be nice. The area is where we grow most of our roses! Anyone heading there? I want to hitch a postal ride.
