1315. 🇸🇬🇱🇰🇲🇲 Nursery Rhymes And Historic Post Offices.

  🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a set of 8 gummed stamps, 1 miniature sheet and 4 self-adhesive stamps from sheetlets of 10 on 17 October 2018 on the subject of Nursery rhymes. The colourful issue was designed by Andy Koh and lithographed by Southern Colour Print and perforated 13.5. Rating:- ***.

  News of some excellent stamps which depict historic post offices:-

  🇱🇰 Sri Lanka Post issued an interesting single stamp on 9 October 2018 to commemorate World Post Day. The stamp was designed by Pulasthi Ediriweera and depicts Kandy Post Office which was built in 1897. Rating:- *****.

  🇲🇲 New issues from Myanma Post And Telecommunications are infrequent. A single stamp was issued on 20 September 2018 to commemorate the 110th anniversary of Yangon's fine Edwardian era General Post Office building.  The first day cover produced by the Myanmar Philatelic Society also features an excellent illustration of the building. Rating:- *****.

  🇭🇰 In Blog 1314 I mentioned the stamps issued by Hong Kong Post on the subject of Cantonese Opera and noted that a Prestige booklet containing 3 panes and costing $53 would accompany the issue. The booklet's cover is depicted below:-


  1. Looks like Myanmar doesn't care about UPU regulations. There is no country name on the stamp. Not even in Burmese.

  2. Thanks stewie1911 for that interesting observation.
