The Penang Philatelic Society made major inroad to secure the agreement of Pos Malaysia to allow the use of the Chung Ling Centenary stamp issue pictorial postmark on 13 and 14 February 2017. I guess this is the best Valentine gift for FDC collectors.
Now is the chance to make a basic concordant FDC with Pulau Pinang cancellation on 85 sen and 95 sen stamps and Butterworth on the RM 1.05 sen stamp!
Here is the announcement reproduced in full from Penang Philatelic Society Facebook posting: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1411026618931524&id=199425816758283
Dear members and stamp lovers,
Pos Malaysia has agreed with our suggestions to extend the duration for the public to do the stamps cancellation for the CHUNG LING CENTENARY first day covers. The details are as follows:
Date: 13 & 14 February (Mon & Tue)
Time: 8.30am to 5.30pm
Post Offices: PENANG GPO, DATUK KERAMAT, BUTTERWORTH, CHAI LENG PARK and BUKIT MERTAJAM.
This is the last chance for those who missed the opportunity. And we appreciate you would help us to spread the news. Thank you!

This is indeed a win-win situation for everyone and a wonderful work by the Society.
