Three old stamps are printed on the FDC that shows the latest three rulers of Kedah, and the current reigning ruler of Kedah, Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah was elected as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malayisa (or equaivalently the King of Malaysia, as Malaysia is a federal constitutional elective monarchy) for the second time in 2011.

#681 FDC from Malaysia

Malaysia          Kedah          Perak

On 20 December 2012, Pos Malaysia issued commemorative stamps and two FDCs to mark the 125th anniversary of Postal History of Kedah, a state in northwest Malaysia. I was in Malaysia for winter holidays, so I had the time to send the FDCs to my address in Canada. At the same time, Khor Kok Keong also sent the FDCs to me! So now I have four FDCs from this issue. Here is the first FDC from Khor Kok Keong.

2013-03-25 Malaysia (1)

This is the first version of the FDC, where the old General Post Office in Alor Setar, the state capital of Kedah. On this FDC Khor affixed one souvenir sheet that features an old postcard posted from Kedah to Penang. The postmark date on the postcard is 27 October 1887, and during that time Kedah was a province under the Kingdom of Thailand so that explains why the postcard and the stamp were of Siam. I think the stamp on the postcard shows a portrait of King Chulalongkorn, the 5th monarch from the Royal House of Chakri. Khor’s FDC was cancelled in Ipoh, Perak.
