A great postcard sent on 9 December 2010 from Taiwan, showing a night view of Taipei, with its impressive Taipei 101 skyscraper, constructed in 1999-2004.

And six stamps!! The yellow greeting stamps was issued on 1 December 2010 to welcome the Year of the Rabbit, there is also its 12 Taiwan Dollar cousin. The 1 TWD Dicturus aeneus was issued in 2008 in the Birds of Taiwan II series, the 0.50 TWD Bauhinia variegata (pink flower at the top) is part of Flowers IV definitive series (2010), the 2.50 TWD Rosalia formosa conviva is one of four long-horned beetles from a 2010 series dedicated to them, the 1 TWD Calliandra emarginata is a pretty pink flower from the Flowers II series, and the 3.50 TWD Lantana camara is part of the Flowers I series of definitives.
