Malaysian First Day Cover - Malaysian Festival Siri II

The post office issued a First Day Cover on 27 September 2012.  The theme is "Malaysian Festivals Siri II".  There are a series of 5 stamps with a denominations of 0.60 cents each.  

This issue is not as popular as the one issued on 13 September 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee for Queen's Elizabeth II and the Royal visit of Prince William and his wife, Catherine to Malaysia.  For this issue, I still managed to buy the stamps, the inserts and envelopes today, one day after it was issued, unlike the earlier, I still have not got the First Day Cover envelopes for the stamps and a stamp chop on them.

The stamps for the "Malaysian Festival Siri II" are pretty cute.  Malaysia is a country rich with a mix of races, religion  and culture, therefore, there are festivals celebrated by each races.  The festivals on the stamps are Hari Raya Aidiladha, Moon Cake Festival, Thaipusam, Pesta Kaul, Regatta Lepa.  

I bought 3 sets, 1 for my colleague whom also a collector of First Day Covers.  She managed to get 2 more sets later in the afternoon too..

getting ready to stick and paste the stamps on the envelopes.  At the same time trying to figure out how is the best way to arrange the stamps so that they look nice..*;*
I got the rubber stamp now and ready to stamp chop on the stamps to make them into the official First Day Covers :)
done with the rubber stamping 

I particularly like the Christmas Tree on the envelope, it further enhances the meaning of this issue of First Day Covers "Perayaan Di Malaysia Siri II".  It is a beautiful piece of First Day Cover with the colourful Christmas tree image.

A closer look

On my way out, I noticed this bunting.  A special series of setemku collection  on the adventure of Upin Ipin has been released on 15 September 2012.  If you are a fan of the Malaysian most popular animated children series, visit Pos Malaysia to collect the limited edition of Kembara of Upin & Ipin Setemku Collection.    

Next to it is the Perayaan Di Malaysian Siri II bunting.
