Giant Pandas - Singapore

The Singapore Philatelic department has released stamps to celebrate the coming to Singapore of a set of Giant Pandas (on loan) from China for the next ten years.

The stamps released include the pictured one for 50 cents and also a much bigger stamp with two pandas on it, which is sold as a miniature sheet for 12 dollars.

I got myself a sheet of the 50 cent pandas as my daughter will love them and also because they are exactly what I need to paste on postcards to other countries.

The pandas are housed in a special section of the zoo and I do plan to take my daughter to see them in the coming weeks once they come out of their one month quarentine.

For more details of the Pandas arrival in Singapore do check out this link. If you scroll down to the bottom, you can also see the different stamps and coins released to mark the occasion.
