Updated 21 October 2014: Malaysia – Hong Kong Joint Issue (Local Food)

Remember to drop by your local post office for the joint issue on Local Food on 17 October 2014.

FDC Stamp Local Food

Interestingly the Malaysian issue has the word Kuala Lumpur (location of the Philatelic Bureau) on the cancellation whereas in Hong Kong, the cancellation does not have the “location”.

Stamps: RM 1.40 X 4

Sheetlet Stamps Local Food

Miniature Sheet: RM 5.60

MS Local Food

Updated 17 October 2014:

The crowd was light today. The Miniature Sheet was too big but I can fit is horizontally. I was off to Kajang to get the cancellation. Kajan is the “Satay Town” of Malaysia.

Traffice was light heading to Kajang, however it was madness on the way back to KL.

Here is the Kajang post office:

Updated 21 October 2014:

I have a few sets listed: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Pair-Kajang-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-FDC-First-Day-Cover-2014-/361083886826? <Sold Out>

I have one where the Kajang name is in the dark area on the MS (reduced price): http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Pair-Kajang-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-FDC-First-Day-Cover-2014-1-/361084868381?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item541255d71d

Due to many questions on the status of MS on FDC, SODA account holders will only receive the stamp on FDC. There will not be an MS on FDC. I have some at very low prices if you want to complete your collection on Pos Malaysia official envelope (Kuala Lumpur cancellation only): http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/MS-FDC-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-First-Day-Cover-2014-MNH-Mint-/261633564712?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item3cea936028

For those who missed out the MS, here is the rock bottom price: http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/Miniature-Sheet-MS-Local-Food-Malaysia-Hong-Kong-Joint-Issue-2014-MNH-Mint-/261633561427?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_207&hash=item3cea935353

Time to go for my Nasi Lemak and Satay….

      1. Is it just here the stamps haven’t arrive? Many people were waiting at the post office and came early. I really want this issue. Does that means it will be sell on Monday?

  1. The giant miniature sheet was sold out early in Seri Kembangan and UPM post offices. Funny thing about the Seri Kembangan post office is that they asked me to get the cancellation done in Kajang. Also found out that they don’t deliver much sets for small post offices, only 5 sets in UPM post office.
