Postage stamp collector is a hobby we hardly sees this day. 20 years back where postage system is at the peak era, many of the school children have their own stamp album at home. Because of the hobby, they will hunt for used envelope and next thing you know was you’ll get envelope with no stamp. In those day, many shop also sells used postage stamp including from other countries. Well that was those days. Now I hardly found kids with stamp album but I do found many kids with Sony PSP.
So if there are any stamp collectors still exist in the State, you are welcome to Dataran Pahlawan Megamall, West Concourse Area. Pos Malaysia is having Stamp Week 2009 from 7 to 13 of December 2009. Time is from 10am to 10pm. Activities include:
