Crossed 700,000 views and a giveaway!

Oh, dear, I overlooked the view count. I know myfdc was reaching 700,000 views and today when I checked it has crossed 702,000 views!

When myfdc first started out it was just to catalogue down the concordant FDCs of Malaysia. I have slowly added sections on Exhibition Covers, Commemoratives, Flight Covers and so on. There is also a section or specialised Articles on topics that appeal to certain specialised collectors. There is even a section on “Errors” though I have not had time to update it for quite some time.

I have put tags for the following thematic collectors: Birds, Unusual, Insects, Pitcher Plant, Trains, Animals, World Post Day, Joint Issue and so on. I have noticed the bird and pitcher plant collectors are much more active.

I have added an option to help non-Malaysian collectors buy the new issues (or back issue) via

If you have any further ideas for improvement, just drop me a note. I do look into them and all it takes is a bit of time, patience and will to start.

What is coming up? I am building a Malaysia First Day Cover Market Guidance. I went out to check out the pricing at the last PSM Stamp Fair and it came quite close. It will take time to build this section and I hope this will help the FDC collectors.

Back to our little fun. It is always fun to have a small celebration and giveaway. Since it has been a very busy month on philately, I will keep it simple. I do not have time to put up a really nice quiz.

Here is what I will do: I will mail out a MS FDC of the 150 Years Sarawak Stamps on 18 July 2019. If I happen to be busy on that day ad could not go to the GPO, I will send the next issue’s FDC.

Anyway, here is how I will select the lucky person. I sort of noticed a Facebook stamp group that gives away random stuff using a random number generator. So here is how it goes:

  1. This is open for anyone anywhere in the world.
  2. Put a number in sequence in the Comment below.
  3. First person, put 1, followed by the second person 2, and third person 3… and so on.
  4. One person can put one number.
  5. Multiple entry by the same person will be disqualified.
  6. In case there is a person who cannot count and put the same numbers (perhaps both were typing at the same time…. unlikely on a blog), the first person who put the number will be valid.
  7. If a number is skipped by a mathematically challenged person, just continue with the next number our champion number counter put.
  8. Continue the number sequence.
  9. On 17 July 2019 night, when I am free, I will run a random number generator and pick a lucky number.
  10. I will contact the lucky pick to get your address. Please do not put your address in your comment. Just a number.
  11. If you do not respond, I will contact the second person and so on.

No need to chase me, it is a giveaway, so chill out.

Simple right?

Oooo, yes, where to post your number? Below this posting and NOT on myfdc Malaysia FB nor anywhere else.

Many thanks for reading myfdc!

Good luck!
