Cover from Singapore no. 5

A lovely, yummy cover received from Singapore with two fantastic stamps issued on 17 July 2009 showing Singaporean desserts. They are ondeh-ondeh (green glutinous rice balls sprinkled with grated coconut that is seasoned with fine salt on the outside and gula melaka inside as a fill) and ice kacang (sweetened dried beans, small dried fruits, strips of jelly and little droplets of starch in bright colors, preserved sugar palm fruit and seeds, chunks or long slivers of grass jelly are mixed with shaved ice and sugar syrup).

Just great, stamps showing the colours of this world:) Thank you, Daphne!
