Lovely letters & postcards for Maryam

All the lovely letters and postcards from all around the world sent to Maryam

#301 FDC from Malaysia

Yesterday I received an FDC from Malaysia, sent by Khor Kok Keong from Perak.

The FDC is about aromatic plants issued on 24 May 2012. Khor sent the FDC from Ipoh, Perak.

This is the back of the FDC.

Inside is a pamphet about the issue.

Altogether there are four plants that are featured in this issue: kesum, pudina, daun limau purut and bunga kantan. Here in Ottawa the first three plants are available in Chinatown: kesum – laksa leaves or vietnamese mint, pudina – peppermint, and limau purut – kaffir lime leaves. Bunga kantan – ginger torch flowers are really hard to get. Since I was here in 2006 until now, I haven’t found bunga kantan yet.

Thank you Khor!
