The Grand Finale: 06 December 2014 (Day 6)


Just announced: Exhibition closes at 06:00 pm.

BEWARE: Another post with quintessential Malaysian English 🙂

Warning! There is a thief prowling around stealing covers and passports while you are chopping!

Day breaks over KL. Looks downcast and will probably be wet the whole day. This does not stop die hard philatelists or stamp collectors. They would have applied for leave from their spouses or dragged their family along.

At this moment, many are making their way to Mamaks and Kopitiams or just pack something to fill their stomach before heading over to KLCC. Some are heading to the airport or driving from outstation. Even big brother China is reading the postings! Since western hosted blogs are blocked by big brother, that must be a government linked agency. Hopefully big brother will join the fun the next time we have an exhibition.

Passion drives us.

23 years is a long time if any of you still remember the last great bash we had in KL ’92! We had smaller ones but hopefully this is a re-start. Look at Bangkok and Singapore who had good international exhibitions held at closer intervals.

Today is the last day and it will be packed as everyone tries to make all the 6 days’ FDCs in a day.

Travel safe my friends. There is enough time. The event closes at 10:00 pm.

    My entry was on PORTUGUESE INDIA

    1. The best is to contact the organiser directly. This is a private website dedicated to Malaysian First Day Covers. Good luck! I hope you win.

  3. It was fun and money well spent! Took my 14 year old niece to teach her about stamps! She went hunting to fill up her passport…very disappointed couldn’t find one for Korea! She must have thought one of the k-pop stars would be at the booth! Yikes! I have enjoyed reading your postings! Thanks so much!!!!

  4. Dear friends,
    Croatia prepared one official special stationery postcard and one special postmark at Zagreb Post Office on December 1, 2014 tribute to MALAYSIA 2014. It is different of the official exhibition cancellation used during the exhibition at PSM booth. If you like I can send you photo of postcard and of postmark.
    Once more I must tell you that Exhibition MALAYSIA 2014 has excellent organisation.
    Kind regards from Croatia,
    Ivan Libric
