Pos Malaysia Berhad will issue a special collection of stamps and first-day covers featuring traditional houses in Malaysia tomorrow (09-07-2009). The collection of 16 stamps will feature Malaysia’s valuable architectural heritage of the 13 states and be in 50 sen denomination.The first-day covers are available at 30 sen each while folders are RM5.50 each.

It was a seriously shocking news to all Malaysian Philatelist when Pos Malaysia decided to issue 16v x 50sen. Normally, a complete set will include 3-5 nos. Anyway, IMHO the full sheet looks great.

From theSTAR Malaysia

Pos Malaysia stamp and philately unit head Yasmin Ramli showing off the new stamps during a media preview Tuesday. KUDOS to Pos Malaysia for the efforts of promoting philately in the news and papers. Im sure all these efforts will catch the attention of younger generations in Malaysia.
