#682 FDC from Malaysia

Malaysia          Kedah          Pulau Pinang

This is the first FDC of Postal History of Kedah that I sent to my own address in Canada.

The only different with Khor’s FDC (entry #681) is that my FDC is cancelled in Pulau Pinang, plus I didn’t affixed the air mail sticker! Please refer to entry #681 for more information about this issue.

#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.
