Due to exhaustion, I was asleep too early yesterday evening and did not manage to update the Stamp Week posting. So here it is for the weekend summary. Many thanks to those who contributed to the news, updates and support! https://myfdc.me/2018/10/31/next-issue-12-november-2018-malaysian-lifestyles-series-2-stamp-week-2018/
Thank you for reading! Catch you all again!
Today’s Malaysia Day Setenant Strip Setenant was limited to 3 sheets per person.
The 7th Malaysia Postcrossing Meet-up will be held in the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office Headquarters from 12:00 noon onwards at Level 3, Dewan Sri Pos.
Here is the postcard design:
The postcard can be ordered from Matthew Lai KH (Facebook). The postcard was designed by @mei_amyng
Many thanks to Malaysia Postcrossing for the information.

Here are the remainder of the Setenant Strip Sheets to be released between 15 – 18 November 2018 in the Kuala Lumpur Philatelic Bureau from 09:30 am.
This gives us a chance to make Setenant Stamp Week Cover on Sunday!
The Mickey Mouse (and Minnie Mouse of course) Pre-Stamped Postal Card / Postcard set of 2 is sold out at the counters. It is also sold out on eziemall.
The final option is for SODA members to order via SODA order forms:
Ooops, just got news SODA is finished too.
Updated 15 November 2018:
A surprising information, when I asked Philatelic Bureau today, the counter is accepting the SODA order forms including the Pre-Stamped Postal Card set! I guess it is who you ask. Anyway, no harm in sending the order if you missed out.
Shah Alam General Post Office still have the Pre-Stamped Postal Card set. Go quick or the dealers will grab the stocks! Many thanks to Jacqueline (myfdc reader) for sharing this vital information.
The third issue during the Stamp Week 2018 is the Malaysia Achievement in 18th Asian Games Commemorative Cover with a Gold Hot Foil stamping pretty much like the #KitaJuara SEA Games 2017 Commemorative Cover issue.
It is going to be a very busy Stamp Week 2018!
