#203 Postcard from Taiwan

Today I received a postcard from Taiwan, sent by postcrosser Nicole.

It shows the fan-shaped train head hotel. I’ve seen one in Toronto near the CN Tower! This one is in Changhua, Taiwan and it’s really cool!

Thanks a lot Nicole!

#201 Postcard from Penang, Malaysia

Today I received a postcard from Malaysia! It was sent by SL Liew from Penang, Malaysia.

The postcard shows Penang Botanic Gardens, a historical garden established by the British when Penang was a British Colony. Known as Kebun Bunga in Malay, I still remember during my childhood days, my family used to visit this place during weekends. My grandma would prepare nice food and we shall sit by the river and enjoy our picnic. Well, those days are gone already, and I myself couldn’t remember when was my last time there. Things must have changed a lot.

On the back, Liew affixed one 60 cent fish stamp. The postmark date is 18 April 2012, and it was posted from GPO Penang. Thanks a lot Liew for this postcard! It truly brings some old memories to my mind, especially my childhood days with my late grandma!! Hopefully one day I’ll be able to visit this place again with Maryam (and my family)!

#200 Cover and FDCs from Algeria

Today I received a cover from Algeria, sent by Atchi To Otmane Mohamed.

On the cover, Otmane affixed three stamps that commemorate 50th anniversary of Algerian Independence or Victory Day. The postmark date is 15 April 2012.

Inside are two FDCs and three used stamps:

This one shows the ships of Algeria in 17-18th centuries, issued in 1981.

The second FDC was issued in 1988 to combat racial discrimination.

Thank you very much Otmane!
