Cover from Malaysia no. 3
Still riding the latest UNESCO wave, I'd like to show here this beautiful cover from Malaysia, sent on 9 April 2009 (oh, I notice there are so many lovely covers which I haven't covered yet after so many months:o) The two se-tenant stamps show the major sights of Malacca and Georgetown (Penang), Historic Cities of the Straits of Malacca (inscribed in the UNESCO list in 2008), places mingling the Malaysian heritage with the Dutch, Portuguese and British influences. The stamps were issued in April 2009 and are complemented by two other se-tenants, showing the Mulu National Park and Kinabalu Park. Thank you, Kow Siew Lan!
