11 October 2017: Updated Malaysia Stamp Schedule

11 October 2017: Updated Malaysia Stamp Schedule

Here is another update. Looks like the 150th Anniversary Sarawak State Legislative Assembly has moved a bit later.

Those who are aiming for the Royal Visit of HRH The Price of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall – 60 Years Anniversary of Diplomatic Ties Malaysia – United Kingdom can update their Standing Order Deposit Account (SODA) instructions. It is expected to receive the same level of interest as the previous “William and Kate” stamp issue. However, since there is better preparation, everyone should be able to get this issue. You have been informed. Action? Top up and update your SODA. No SODA? Might as well open one 🙂

Palindrome Date is back! 07.10.17

Palindrome Date is back! 07.10.17

Finally this year’s palindrome date is back! This time it is on Saturday 07.10.17 (or 07.10.2017). A Palindrome date is a date which read the same from the front and from the back. Try reading 71017 and 7102017! It occurs once a year.

There are also Minor Palindrome dates on 07.1.17 (7117), 07.11.17 (71117) and 07.12.17 (71217). They are known as “Minor” as the actual date is 07.01.2017, 07.11.2017 and 07.12.2017 thus it is just a coincidental match if the postmark is the short version.

Some collect postmarks of special dates (e.g. 8.8.88). Thus this will be of interest to postmark collectors. Any letter with a stamp and a postmark is good enough for a collection.

Good luck!

Come to Kota Samarahan for an A to Z in Amphibian Philately and a Guinness World Record in the Making

Come to Kota Samarahan for an A to Z in Amphibian Philately and a Guinness World Record in the Making

Amphibians, Biodiversity, Campus, DeTAR, Exhibits, Free Entry and Guinness World Records: That sums it up for what will be an exciting evening in Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) on 04 October 2017.

04 October 2017 is the World Animal Day. In conjunction with this day, the Institute of Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation (IBEC), UNIMAS, is organising the Sarawak Biodiversity Evening of events for public awareness in the fields of environment, ecotourism, nature conservation and biodiversity studies. The evening will showcase exhibitions, workshops, rapid talks, food trucks and philately!

The event will run from 2:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Delima Hall, DeTar Putra Building, UNIMAS. It is open to all and entrance is free. Registration for workshops starts at 01:30 pm.

The philatelic highlight will be an attempt to be included in the Guinness World Records as the largest collection of amphibian stamps! Here is the extract: “Under the auspices of Guinness World Records, the organising committee has registered for an official exhibition of the world’s largest collection of stamps on the theme of amphibians (official entry 161123094024tlco).

The exhibition will show nearly 1,500 stamps of frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and caecilians, issued by scores of countries around the world, as well as postal stationery and other philatelic materials.” Keen to witness history in the making? Why not drop by for over 450 frames of amphibian postage stamps and postal stationery (including aerogrammes, first day covers, booklets, maximum cards, pictorial cancellations, essays, proofs, unissued items, etc)!

myfdc would like to thank Dr Indraneil Das and the Institute of Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation for the insights to the Sarawak Biodiversity Evening and amphibian exhibition. Wishing the event a great success and hope to read about the successful entry into the Guinness World Records!
