#45 Postcard from China

Postcard from China received through postcrossing, and it shows a picture of a giant panda!!

I think any country that possesses specific or unique animals that do not exist in other countries must be very lucky. What more if that animal is cute like a giant panda!

It was sent from Shanghai to Ottawa on August 3rd, 2011. If you also think giant panda is cute, watch the following video:

Thank you Liz!

#44 Cover and stamps from Malaysia

Another cover from Malaysia! It’s from Ian Choong.

On the cover, Ian affixed two stamps; one from 2010 and the other from 2011. Both stamps are related to the east Malaysia state of Sabah.

Inside the cover, Ian sent two souvenir sheets of stamps:

The first sheet contains four stamps of semi-aquatic animals.

The second sheet is about unique birds of Malaysia.

Thank you very much Ian!
