Postcard from Malaysia no. 3
After Argentina this is another faraway place:) This great postcard arrived in September 2010 from the town of Tenom in Sabah, Malaysia, and shows the remains of an ancient volcano (hills of Bodgaya and Bohey Dulang islands) in Tun Sakaran Marine Park, one of the six national parks in the state of Sabah (Borneo).
The 30 sen square stamp has sweet potatoes (Ubi Keledek, Ipomoea batatas), from a series called "Tuber Plants" of four stamps (and a souvenir sheet), issued on 23 July 2009. The the other 30 sen stamps features Pteroptyx valida, one of the fireflies presented in a set of four stamps and a souvenir sheet issued on 10 May 2010.
Thank you so much Caroline.
