Palindrome Stamp Fair 81218

Palindrome Stamp Fair 81218

Folks, if you are free for further philatelic adventure, why not drop by the local post office on the way to the PSM Stamp Fair this Saturday (08 December 2018). Incidentally it is a minor palindrome date (08.12.18). Usually it is just called a radar number, but let’s be professional, it is palindrome number. Reading the palindrome number from left to right and right to left will be the same i.e. 81218!

The previous minor palindrome was in November 2018. This is different compared to a major palindrome which is the same from left to right or right to left on a full date: 8102018 which occurred in October 2018. Minor palindromes will cease from 2020 until… you figure it out and tell me.

Meanwhile, the 5th PSM Stamp Fair will be held from 08 – 09 December 2018 in the regular Petaling Jaya Community Library. The published time is from 09:30 am to 05:30 pm.

Pos Malaysia usually brings out really good old stuff.

I think many are waiting for the recent Thailand 2018 ETS Overprint MS FDC by PSM. Hopefully it will be on sale…. well, we will know on Saturday.

Towards 600,000 views

Towards 600,000 views

myfdc will be hitting the 600k viewers milestone! The unexpected interest in Mickey Mouse and Orchids accelerated the views. By the end of today, it should be 598,000 and it is expected to cross the 600,000 by the end of this week!

myfdc is a self funded website that focus on Malaysia First Day Covers and of course stamps and Miniature Sheets (MS). myfdc consists of various kind sharing contributors (it is not possible for me to be everywhere) to ensure the news can be obtained in an orderly manner. In order to ensure accuracy, the facts are checked first. This may cause a delay in the news BUT you will not get “fake news” 🙂

myfdc has been updated to have a quick link to the Facebook edition (for quick news). You can access via this link: https://www.facebook.com/MYFDCMalaysia/

The FB site has over 1,10 Followers compared to the website with slightly over 411 Followers. Most of them are dealers and resellers who want to get ahead of the collectors.

Many thanks for your continued readership. Okay, I have been running this everytime myfdc is reaching a milestone. The lucky one who hits the 600,000 view mark.

Now:

  1. Do not ask me how the numbers come out in the display. Ask WordPress. I have no clue and no time to track the number of view change.
  2. It is very luck based, so if someone logs in and clicks through and the system does not refresh, then nothing much I can do as I am not running the counter.

This is how it works in case this is the first time you are participating.

1. Scroll  and LOOK at the right side bar to check which viewer you are.

2. If you are the 600,000th viewer, take a screenshot (*just like the sample image without the red box and red arrow) and email to me at sky52200myfdc@gmail.com

3. If you are viewer 599,995 to 599,999 or 600,001 to 600,005, take a screenshot. You will also be given a prize.

You will not regret it.

Simple…. I hope…..

By the way, I will be running sales on FB and eBay as well as a few other activities as soon as I can figure out what to do. A quiz will be coming up as well. Meanwhile, feel free to send me ideas 🙂

Here is how you can also be contributing, send your suggestions for news, make concordant covers, send news and events in your area (only for non-commercial activities of stamp associations, school stamp clubs, etc.), provide updates in your area during issue day, etc.

Thank you very much for your support, comments and ideas!

Hope to see you at a million views!

Into the 7th Year and another (Malaysia Day Setenant) RM 1 Below Face Value Offer with Free Postage!

Into the 7th Year and another (Malaysia Day Setenant) RM 1 Below Face Value Offer with Free Postage!

myfdc has been renewed for the 7th year. When it first started, the readership per day is hardly 10. It grew steadily especially after the Royal Visit in 2012. It is self funded and I rely on your support through FDC purchases to continue the site.

myfdc was initially set up to create awareness on concordant First Day Covers. It has moved to provide timely and important information to support concordancy. The fringe benefit is that the information is also useful to the general collecting public of Malaysian Philately. myfdc relies on information shared by Pos Malaysia and the kinder sharing readers. Information which is timely is useful. Information which is old is just coffeeshop talk and of no value. I think you know how it is. myfdc will also only publish once the facts have been reasonably confirmed. Though there are last minute changes (which you can get a faster input at myfdc Malaysia Facebook page); by and large myfdc has been able to provide the information on time.

By the end of today, myfdc will hit 590,000 views. I will run specials leading to 600,000 views expected sometime in January 2019!

myfdc has been sending freebies on a flash basis, competitions, quiz, philatelic trips (for those who took up the offer) and various really great offers for high market price items at affordable (collectors’) prices. I hope to be able to continue this with your support.

Meanwhile to kick-start the 7th year; here is another RM 1 below face value plus FREE normal mail: https://www.ebay.com.my/itm/283277592552

It is this year’s super HOT Malaysia Day setenant strip sheet. ONLY 1 sheet will be available for this deal via my eBay link. It is very hard to get the setenant during the Stamp Week queue and I am saving it for this promotion. Miss this and you can get it from dealers at RM 200 :-), you choice.

Happy bidding and many thanks for reading myfdc!
