【 12年前羊年大马独有的另类新年生肖邮票极限片】

Malaysia does NOT issue Chinese New Year Shengxiao stamps, however, during the past years, Pos Malaysia Bhd would try to issue an animal series resembling to the CNY animal zodiacs to usher the new year. 12 years ago during the year of the goat in 2003, A set of Goat Stamps was issued prior to the Chinese New Year, that was regarded as a Shengxiao Series although NOT officially mentioned. I realised the stamps as maximum cards, and share here an MC to wish ALL a Prosperous Year of the Goat to come.

马来西亚邮政不曾发行生肖邮票,虽然如此,邮政时而也会应景,在农历新年之前发行一些有关该年相关的生肖动物邮票,增添农历新年气氛。12年前的羊年,大马邮政一贯发行了一套以羊主题的邮票。我也以邮票制作了无数的羊年极限片。就在此贴一枚大马羊年极限片给大家拜个早年。

【The dark background of this Penang 2nd Bridge Postcard imposes difficulty in placing a perfect cancellation for realisation of a maximum card】
【这一枚黑色背景的槟城2桥明信片让我在制作极限片销戳时伤透脑筋】

This postcard gives an ideal close-up of the Penang 2nd bridge. When comes to the realisation of a maximum card, it really gives much difficulty in finding a good position for the cancellation of a First Day Cachet . After several moves and shifts of the stamp,  I made it.

这一枚在近距离取角拍摄的槟城2桥明信片,非常美丽。当要把它制作一枚极限片的当儿,深色的背景的确让我伤透了脑筋,担心销戳不清。几番的移动邮票探寻最佳位置,最终成功销戳,心中满意。

【You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you】 【今天你或许权势在握,然而时间将会比你更为强势】

"You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you"
"今天你或许权势在握,然而时间将会比你更为强势"
Quote : “When a bird is alive, it eats ants. When the bird had died, ants eat it.
One tree can be made into a million matchsticks, but only one matchstick is needed to burn a million trees.”
Circumstances can change at anytime. Don't devalue or hurt anyone in this life.
You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you.
摘录 :“当一只鸟儿还活着的时候,它食蚂蚁,当鸟儿死了,蚂蚁却可吞噬了它。一棵树可以制造出百万根火柴,然而只须一根火柴就足以焚烧百万棵树。”
环境会改变,切勿低估或伤害他人。今天你或许权势在握,然而时间将会比你更为强势。

It could have been a perfect Maxicard ! 错失了一枚"完美"极限片!

I Received this Christmas Greeting postcard from the Philatelic Museum of Singapore years ago. A very creative postcard reproduced from a 1900 vintage card showing the former old building of the museum which was the Anglo Chinese School. Artist had wisely inserted Santa Claus and his reindeer Sledge on the card creating an atmosphere of  the Christmas season approaching in Singapore.  I treasure the card and thank SPM (Singapore philatelic museum) for the Christmas greeting. However, I feel pity that the greeting stamp selected for the card was a "deepavali" stamp instead of a "Santa Claus" stamp, which would have been otherwise an ideal maximum card.  Did you receive a similar card with a "santa Claus" stamp ?

Merry Christmas to ALL.


那一年收到一张新加坡邮政博物馆寄来的别致圣诞节贺卡.
一枚翻印自1900 年代的博物馆前身的明信片,片上加插了圣诞老人与雪橇,予人浓浓的圣诞佳节气氛。
邮政博物馆寄出这枚创意片, 还把邮票给贴在明信片的图画片, 盖上了一个博物馆特制的相关圣诞节邮戳,模仿了制作一枚极限片......
可惜的是, 邮政博物馆却在一套新国庆祝佳节的邮票里,捡了一枚"印度新年"的邮票贴上,却没用上圣诞节邮票诚然可惜错过了一枚好片!

就以这一枚片祝贺大家圣诞节快乐。

【 以乐高呈现主耶稣降生的一景】

Jesus was born on the Christmas Day。 I have this maximum card depicting the scene of the Mother Mary, Magi and the son of God in a manger. By now, the Malaysia LEGOLAND must have been decorated in a Christmas mood with LEGOs, perhaps, the scene of the Birth of Christ is ideal for this Christmas.

Share a Maximum Card I created from a Singapore Stamp on Festival - Christmas. Yet to see one stamp from Malaysia on Christmas.

Once again, Merry Christmas to ALL.

主耶稣在圣诞节降生。我制作了一枚圣诞极限片采用了一张以乐高砌成主耶稣诞生马槽的场景。马来西亚有一座乐高城,在圣诞节来临时,想必城内都开始布置迎接圣诞节,或许以乐高呈现耶稣诞生的情景是个不错的构思。

贴一枚新加坡邮政发行的圣诞节邮票制作的圣诞节极限片。共赏。不知那年马来西亚邮政考虑发行一枚圣诞节邮票?

再祝大家圣诞节平安。

【Away in a Manger, no crib for a bed - Where Jesus was born 】
【马槽的圣婴 - 耶稣基督的诞生】

There was this rhyme or hymn which carols the Birth of the King Jesus. I will like to write it down on this auspice month of Christmas Day. Rhyme with it and be blessed on this Christmas Day.
Share here a Mother Mary and Son maximum card realised by a good friend whilst studying in the UK, I really like this maximum card.
Merry Chritmas to All .

【Away in a Manger】
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay,
The little lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes.
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky.
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Sweet bells they ring, they ring out the news today,
That Christ was born, was born on Christmas day,
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me for ever and love me, I pray.

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there.
Sweet bells they ring they ring out the news
That Christ was born, was born on Christmas Day,
That Christ was born, was born on Christmas day.


有这么一首诗歌,描述主耶稣诞生的马槽环境,尊贵的主耶稣在圣诞夜降生在一个卑微的马槽里,来到人世间,拯救了我们。耶稣诞生时是个平安祥和的夜晚,让我们以祥和心境来在圣诞日纪念主的降生。

【圣婴的马槽】
1、远远在马槽里,无枕也无床,小小的主耶稣,睡觉很安康。众明星都望着,主睡的地方!小小的主耶稣,睡在干草上。
2、众牲畜呜呜叫,圣婴忽惊醒,小小的主耶稣,却无啼哭声。我真爱主耶稣,敬求近我身,靠近我小床边,守我到天明。
3、恭敬求主耶稣,靠近我身旁,爱护我接受我,做主的小羊。也保护众孩童,一齐都安康,教我们都能够跟主到天堂。

贴一枚圣母玛利亚与圣婴的极限片,此片是一位在英国求学的朋友代为制作。珍藏多年,我非常喜欢。也在此祝 大家有个平安喜乐的圣诞夜。 Merry Christmas.
