This does throw a conundrum into the Federal Territory Garden Flowers Definitive with Micro text printing…. how long will the Garden Flowers survive? When will the state Wild Orchids grow in the local post offices?
Will we even get 14 state cancellations in the Philatelic Bureaus or will it be SODA Order Form again?
You better bookmark this article as the above gets answered… sooner or later…
Meanwhile, let me do some digging for the new plants.
Oh yes, the Wild Orchids were grown by Reign Associates (Mr KY Lim).
Pos Malaysia has clarified that:
- SODA regular order and Philatelic Bureau HQ (04 December 2018) will only get Kuala Lumpur cancellation.
- http://www.eziemall.com and SODA Mail Order will receive 14 states cancellations.
This has also been collaborated by a reader (Pei Yong): refer to comments below. Many thanks for sharing.
