#427 Registered FDC from Taiwan

A registered FDC from Taiwan!

Its the Teas of Taiwan Souvenir Sheet FDC. This is my second copy of this FDC (check my entry #425), except that this one is registered.

This is the back of the FDC. Unfortunately, there is no information about the sender. This is the third time that I received a beautiful cover from Taiwan from an unknown sender (check my previous entries #340 and #392). I know that this registered FDC and the registered FDC in entry #392 are from the same person. Any guess? Thank you very much to the sender…

#423 Postcard from Hong Kong Disneyland

This is the last postcard that I sent from Hong Kong to my address in Canada. On 4 September 2012, my family and I visited Hong Kong Disneyland. We spent the whole day having lots of fun! As it was a weekday, there were not many people and we did not have to wait at all for most of the rides and shows.

I wrote this postcard for myself and sent it from Town Hall in Disneyland Hong Kong.

This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 5 September 2012. We left Hong Kong for Toronto in the morning of 5 September 2012.

#422 Cover and Postcard from Hong Kong

On 4 September 2012, we left Hong Kong and Kowloon for Disneyland Hong Kong!! We stayed in Hollywood Hotel as it was cheaper compared to Disneyland Hotel. I decided to send a postcard and a cover from the hotel to my address in Canada.

This is the postcard.

This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 6 September 2012.

This is the cover from the hotel. The postmark date is also 6 September 2012 but I used two HKD 2.40 stamps – it just happened that I had one extra HKD 2.40 stamp.
