Well, finally, this is what you have been waiting for, the updated stamp programme:
With that is the confirmation that the Places of Worship Series 2 will be on sale on Monday, 13 May 2019. Stay tuned for more information nearer the date of issue.
The schedule now shows the 150 Years of Sarawak Stamps. It should be an interesting issue. It seems that Combating Wildlife Cybercrime has changed to Conservation of Wildlife.
Noticeable not in the schedule are the Seashell, Wild Flowers, Dying Trade, Folk Tales and Parrot! However an interesting Joint Issue with Romania is in the cards! We have not had a joint issue in quite a while.
Meanwhile it is time to update your own calendar. Remember the operative word is: Tentative!
What do you think of the new schedule?

Pos Malaysia should ensure at least one third ( 33 % ) of all new stamp issues for each year be devoted to Flora and Fauna themes — I don’t recall Malaysia issuing any stamps devoted to Bats. The Flora and Fauna themes are popular with stamp collectors. Back in the 1990’s and 2000’s there were quite a number of new issues in a year devoted to Flora and Fauna themes ( if I recall correctly ).
