Hong Kong - Lighthouses

A miniature of lighthouses today from Hong Kong. Even though I did make a trip down to Hong kong last month, this sheet was picked up in Sing post as part of the foreign postal series.

Its always fun to pick up stamps of light houses and the fact that the positions are plotted could even help some loser go on google earth and actually plot these lighthouses.

Anyway, it is sort of cool to imagine the sight from these lighthouses. Check out the tug dragging around a sand barge if front of the first light house.

Singapore - Monuments

Just a quick one today. For some reason, I'm not connecting with the stamps in Singapore. The stamps are a bit expensive and they cost too much. And on top of it some of them are pricey too.

But some of these are pretty. I like this stamp because of the Sepia and mossy look to it, which is rather apt for a stamp based on monuments.

Australia - Year of the Rabbit

Here's another set released by Australia. I love it because it adds to my Chinese years collection & also because it is so beautiful. Would I actually preferred it to be a miniature sheet, but since they only released the stamp set, got an FDC for it.

Don't you think the Tiger in the sheet is cool? :)

Down under - Kate - William Wedding

Went to Australia for three days to attend a vessel. Sadly though the trip happened over the long weekend and though down under they decided to have a winter in June, I report with regret that postal employees in the southern hemisphere also take holidays on the weekend.

As such managed to only get my hands on a few stamps. One of which is the above sheet of the recent royal wedding. Such fun.
