The turnout was quite decent this morning in the KL GPO. Little would we guess that the crowd will grow larger and was quite consistent through the day. It seems that many are buying for their friends from mainly Johor! Many smaller post offices either did not receive any stock or just plain sold out!
In addition, the LIME 2015 Pre-Stamped Envelopes were also on sale. It received lukewarm reception.
By about 10:00 am, Prof. Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin Raja Yaacob made a cameo appearance to get a set! He was very obliging to sign covers for the lucky collectors. In fact he stayed on until after 12:00 noon sigining steadily and posing with the collectors. Here he is in action:
I managed to make a set of FDC cancelled in Medan Tuanku.
If you are keen, I hope to receive the Medan Tuanku and Johor Bahru FDCs by next week and I will be back on 07 April 2015. I will send a post on the availability then. Keep the date!

Okay, I am a few days early. Here are the nice covers with both Medan Tuanku and Johor Bahru cancellations plus signed by the designer!
I have 3 variants that I can spare for bidding only. It is hard to make and harder to also have the designer’s signature.
