I hope that next year, Pos Malaysia will have less changes to the schedule. It is very difficult to follow and disruptive. What do you think? Any suggestions on how to improve the process?

Johor sell on 17.10.2014 Friday?? Rest day for all post office, how to sell???
Hong Kong joint issue will be released within less than 24 hour from the time of this comment written, yet Pos Malaysia didn’t announce anything till now.
We philatelist don’t even know how much money and time we need to prepare for first day issue products….And even if we had, it is all about whether we can make it or not grabbing those.
Actually release in Hong Kong on 09 October 20140 but not Malaysia. Malaysia is going to be sold on 17 October 2014.
Yeah, I just being told by those officers at Dayabumi just this afternoon that October 17 is a certain, final date. Plus they said that the promotional equipments (posters, banners etc.) hasn’t been prepared/printed yet so they’re not authorized to publish it for now until it’s done (but the stamps are printed already).
They’re also hinted a stamp sheet of 20 with a divider in the middle, just like KLIA2 but vertical. Setenant or not, I’m not sure yet (hopefully yes, RM1.40 per piece feels like expensive somehow).
Thanks for the updates. This is really helpful. I do wish that there is no more postponement.
