I also created hybrid covers to include similar tourist destinations of Kedah, Kelantan, Perak, Pahang, Terengganu and Sabah.

Malaysia Stamp - Malaysian Festivals Series 3 - January 15, 2019 Issue

The first stamp issue of Pos Malaysia in 2019 highlighting festivals of 5 major ethnic groups in Malaysia - Chinese, Malay, Indian, Iban and ethnic groups in Sarawak and Kadazandusun and ethnic groups of Sabah. ALthough 2019 is the Chinese Lunar Year of Pig, there is no sign of a pig except for the character of pig "hai" on the flag in the Chinese Festival stamp. Wishing every a great year in 2019. Enjoy viewing my collection here including hybrid covers with other Malaysian stamps and a Thailand 2019 Year of Pig stamp as well as on international aerogramme.
