Lovely letters & postcards for Maryam

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

#388 Cover from Kedah, Malaysia

During my long summer vacation in Malaysia, I visited Padang Besar, the border town between Perlis, the northenmost (and smallest) state in West Malaysia; and Thailand. I stopped at the Post Office there and asked for Perlis state definitive stamps. The post clerk told me that they don’t have any state definitive stamps there. I should go and check their post office in the state capital, Kangar for those stamps. Again, I had no choice but to buy Malaysia definitive stamps and use them on the cover I am sending back to my address in Canada. So here is the cover:

The postmark date is 19 July 2012 but the location is not Perlis but Alor Setar, the state capital of Kedah!! Perhaps since Perlis is such a small state, all letters mailed from there are collected and cancelled in Alor Setar in Kedah instead of Kangar in Perlis.

  1. Basically, nowaday, you would not get any state definitive stamp from the counter. Those definitive stamp is treated as “special issue”.
