Registered cover posted from Model Town, Delhi on 23 Sept 05.
A nice FDC sent from Viet Nam on 18 Sep 08. I find it curious that instead of applying the special cancel bearing the date of issue, they instead postmarked it at Hue (the place where the festival featured is held) with a regular postmark but still bearing the date of issue of 03 June.... Why is that? Also, the odd franking in red that reads in both Vietnamese and French, roughly translated in English as: "Found with lumps." I wonder what that means. At first I took it to mean that the envelope had some bulky enclosures, but all that was inside was a small piece of paper. Odd.....
FDC sent from Kuala Lumpur on 23 Sep 08. Notice the postmark celebrating Eid Al-Fit'r. Serves as a reminder of Malaysia's predominantly Muslim population.
Here's another Scouting FDC; remember the last one was scratched with a pen and not postmarked? Thankfully, my friend was kind enough to send another one over.
Here's a cover I've been wanting to have for quite some time now, but unfortunately, it didn't arrive in very good condition. As you can see, the souvenir sheet is crumpled (perhaps it was too wet when applied or maybe it got damp in transit?). Also the cover is a little bent since no carboard or sheet of paper was inserted and this is a rather large cover so there is a tendency for it to be bent. But, nevertheless, it is still a very nice cover and souvenir sheet.
Nice cover with special postmark sent from Pori on 26 Sept. Although I do not usually collect flora and fauna stamps, I found this set to be quite interesting. Perhaps it is the layout of the envelope and the neat cancellation. I guess presentation value really does matter!
And here, to wrap up my post before I leave is a cover sent from Jakarta on 22 Sep 08. Notice the pro-environment campaign stamp to the left. I find the slogan rather cheesy, though, but hey, maybe that's just me! Thanks to Nadia W. for this nice cover!
