Oh, come on... Deathly Hallows??? Surely you can come up with a better one than that...
Well, I got the first day cover that commemorates the 35th anniversary of the establishment diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. Except that it's not a first day cover, it's a commemorative cover, which is a slightly different beast. I guess I should read the news article properly next time! The difference between the two is that first day covers are specially-designed envelopes stuck on with specially-designed stamps, and marked with a specially-designed postmark. A commemorative cover is a specially-designed envelope... and that's it. All in all, it's an unremarkable affair, especially if you're used to well-designed first day covers (not that Malaysian first day covers are well-designed... but I digress). Oh sure, a commemorative cover has a stamp printed right on to it but that's just like an overglorified aerogramme. Lame. On the whole, what a disappointment. I haven't been collecting first day cover
Oh no! Oh no! I'm dreading the ending. I hereby would like to appeal to JK Rowling's better nature to not cause an exodus of suicide attempts due to the ending of the last book of the Harry Potter's series.ReplyDelete
Haha! I'm sure this time there's a happier ending than usual...ReplyDelete
