  1. 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.

      1. 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).
