myfdc is 4 Years Young

Today it is 4 years since myfdc was set up.

This site started out back in 2012 on this very day. It was a struggle just to find a format, then organise the photos and write up the various sections. In the early days, the readership was only around 38,000 views per year. Today it tops at 100,000 views in a year. Today, there is a mirror site on Facebook with links to items published here and also occasional short updates. I have also started on specialised areas of interest with separate articles giving insights into different topics.

Here are some interesting insights:

  1. No, I do not work with Pos Malaysia.
  2. No, I do not have a contact in Pos Malaysia.
  3. No, I do not get advance information: just hard work to find out more information.
  4. No, I do not have a shop.
  5. No, I am not a dealer.
  6. No, I do not really collect stamps.
  7. No, I do not like postcards.
  8. No, I do not swap. Stop asking this question.
  9. No, I do not like posted covers. Stop asking this question too.
  10. No, I do not sell the covers shown on this site.


  1. Yes, I buy old covers at or above catalogue prices which is much higher than dealer offers.
  2. Yes, the photos here are part of my collection.
  3. Yes, I drive around to make covers, feel free to join me.
  4. Yes, most of those following this site are dealers/resellers!
  5. Yes, I am looking for contacts around Malaysia.
  6. Yes, I collect Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
  7. Yes, I collect joint issues with Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
  8. Yes, you can contact me with any question but I do not know all the answers.
  9. Yes, I do not email you with trash if you follow this site.
  10. Yes, I am looking for advertising to reduce the maintenance cost of this site.

Hopefully myfdc has made concordancy more interesting and philately more accessible with a free flow of information. If you have any ideas or suggestions for concordant covers or related areas, just drop me a note.

Similarly, if you want to sell your collection, just drop me a note. I am always on the look out for Malaysia / Malaya / Japanese Occupation / Pre-1971 Singapore / Pre-Australian Cocos Island / Pre-Australian Christmas Island / Labuan / North Borneo / Sarawak / Straits Settlements First Day Cover / Last Day Cover / Flight Cover / Exhibition Cover (no stamps please).

Look out for more interesting topics as I write in between my free time.
