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
Too bad, I have to go to Kuantan this weekend. I want to read at Kata Suara next month can a? :DReplyDelete
BTW, I already have Sayap Adinila stocks.
Can, can! Katasuara was made for the likes of you! :D I'll be in touch. (Also, that gives me an idea... maybe I can wrangle vovin to read his Opera Angkasa as well...)ReplyDelete
Save one copy of Sayap for me ya.
Heh, Vovin is rather shy to read in public I think. He didn't even bring Opera Angkasa during the recent MASKARA.ReplyDelete
Ha, maybe I can pair up with him and act out the banters in our novels. That will be something. :D
KURUS is showing tonight!ReplyDelete
