07 May 2019 Latest updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

Here is the latest Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule dated 07 May 2019. Do remember to update your calendar. Information is always confirmed nearer the date of issue.

Relax and just open a SODA account. Most collectors are non-concordanist, thus there is very little planning required other than to know when to show up if you prefer to do your own, OR open a Standing Order Deposit Account (SODA) which is an easier way not to miss a single issue.

24 April 2019: Updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

24 April 2019: Updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

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?

Here is the second release of the stamp programme with a much extended list of issues.

Expected between now and 19 February 2019 is the installation of the Sultan of Pahang stamps. Will we see another Pahang State Wild Orchids definitive? Will there be another special Yamg Dipertuan Agong sheetlet? So many questions!

As usual, keep a look out for the updates.

What do you think of this year’s programme?

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 🙂

09 October 2017: World Post Day : Pos-Silang

09 October 2017: World Post Day : Pos-Silang

Today’s response was decent. Here is the response when the Philatelic Bureau opened its doors.

The stamps in the main General Post Office counter was sold out quite early. The queue at the Philatelic Bureau was initially slow but started to move towards 10:00 am. Most buyers were aiming for the Postbox Postcard design.

At the General Post Office, there was an simple observance of the World Post Day. 16 early birds were given goody slingbags with free Presentation Packs and souvenir fridge magnets.

Meanwhile, the 5th Malaysia Postcrossing Meetup preparations were underway directly upstairs on Level 3 where Dewan Sri Pos is located. Recognise anyone inside the photo?

This time the Postcrossers were seated in a square. The Postcrossers then put their postcards into a plastic bag with their name marked. The plastic bag is then passed in turn around the square arrangement in order that all those seated can sign in turn. This is a very neat way compared to the criss-crossing arrangement in the last meetup on a round table. After the initial autographing (is there any other name for this signing process?) of postcards, everyone joined in the opening ceremony.

At the end of the ceremony, the Prostcrossers returned to the square and completed the autographs and applied cachets of the 5th Postcrossing Meetup on the postcards.

The designer for this issue is Mr Gan Soon Bing from World Communications Network Resources.

Here is my simple FDC with the Meetup cachets and designer’s autograph.

This time I managed to send out postcards.

The Kota Kinabalu Postcrossing Meetup was held in Sea Monster Restaurant, Segama.

Meanwhile in Johor, Majidee Post Office and Pasir Gudang Post Office provided a special World Post Day cachets on postcards.

How was the response and celebration at your location?
