I have this FDC of the Malaysia-China 600 years of relationship, I noted the date on the pictorial cancel is 7.7.2005, I read the date of issue on the enclosed leaflet within the FDC, the date says 21.7.2005. Which is the correct date, Can someone clarify ?

收藏中有一枚马中友谊 600 周年纪念首日封,发现到封上的日期与说明册子的日期有出入,戳的日期是 7.7.2005, 册子注明的是 21.7.2005,那一个对呢?

Maximum Cards of the Malayan Period are Scarce 稀有的马来亚时期极限片

【 Maximum Cards of the Malayan Period are Scarce - 1953 QE II Maximum Card 】
【 稀有的马来亚时期极限片 - 1953年英女皇极限片 】

Maximum Cards of the Early periods of Malaysia are scarce, as virtually no local collectors then knew about the hobby, however, some early Malayan MCs do exist, perhaps, they were created by tourists, or foreign residents staying in the country.   A typical example of the early Malayan Maximum Card is as follows :

Stamp issued : Coronation of the QE II, 1953
Postmark Cancel : IPOH ordinary date stamp, 1953


马来西亚早期极限片数目非常有限,不易找,当时的集邮人都不晓得极限片是何物?然而一些早期 的马来亚极限片仍然浮现,这一些极限片数目不多,或许是当时的游客,外国居留者的代表作。以下是一枚极佳的马来亚早期极限片。

【Satay Maximum Card realised with a "Reggie Lee" postcard】 【“Reggie Lee"明信片制作的沙爹极限片】

【Satay Maximum Card realised with a "Reggie Lee" postcard】
【“Reggie Lee"明信片制作的沙爹极限片】

In the 80s, Reggie Lee Designer's Postcards marketed through memory lane were common on the postcard racks throughout Malaysia. Many popular themes were produced and they are absolutely good materials for realising Maximum cards. Reggie Lee Designer had stopped producing new postcards, old stocks are getting scarce and it is hard to hunt for them nowadays. I used to buy up some of these cards whenever I see them,although, they are no longer as fresh as mint,very often covered with dirt.

I had used this cartoon satay man postcard to realise Maximum cards for several new stamp issues in the past.  I am using it again this time for the Hong Kong - Malaysia Joint Issue.

Stamp issued on : 9.10.2014 ( Date of sale :17.10.14)
Postmark : First Day of issue Pictorial Cancel

80年代时期,Reggie Lee Designer 明信片在市场推出一系列的主题明信片。这一些由 memory lane 出版的明信片很适合制作极限片。出版社已经停止印制明信片,存货已经越来越稀有。一般我看到有关系列的明信片,虽然品相不佳,稀薄灰尘沾满面,我依然会购买一些来备用。

我曾用这一枚 reggie lee designer 沙爹人漫画明信片制作了无数新马新邮极限片。这一回还是重用它来制作 香港-大马联发的地道美食极限片,胜任有余!共赏!

【2014 Hong Kong-Malaysia Joint Issue - Local Food : Satay 】 【2014 香港-马来西亚联发-地道食物 : 沙爹】

【2014 Hong Kong-Malaysia Joint Issue - Local Food : Satay 】
【2014 香港-马来西亚联发-地道食物 : 沙爹】

I have this "Satay Man postcard" by SW Singapore printer of the 1960s, to a pure deltiologist ,he prefers to keep the postcard in its vintage condition, however, I prefer to give this postcard a new life by turning it into a maximum card as I am a pure maximaphilist. Nobody is right or wrong.
Mobile satay man selling across the streets and alleys had been a common scene in the past. Equipped with tools, a satay man can prepare satay freely at any place. Just as the picture of the postcard shows, I enjoyed the moments of eating satay in an open air environment.

Well, life has gone through tremendous changes, selling satay on the streets is disappearing from our sight.Production of satay is highly commercialised, and of course the original flavour of the satay is Gone. I can now find the fragrance of satay flavour in my Maximum Card. Enjoy!

Stamp issued : 9.10.2014 ( Sale on 17.10.2014)
Joint issue with Hong Kong .
Postmark : First Day Pictorial

这一枚“沙爹人”明信片是新加坡著名明信片印制商于60年代所发行。对于一个纯明信片收集者而言,他会选择保存原片而收存。然而我却选择赋予这一枚老片一个新生命,把它制成一枚极限片,因为我是一个极限人。大家都是在收集,没有所谓的对与错。
流动“沙爹人”骑着铁马到处叫卖沙爹在早年时代极为普遍。一个“沙爹人”载着简单的烧制沙爹工具,就可随处叫卖沙爹。 正如明信片上的“沙爹人”现场烧制情景,叫我缅怀那一年在露天即兴享受吃沙爹的乐趣。

时代变迁,“沙爹人”随街叫卖的情景已不复在。如今沙爹的制作已经机械化,少了传统烧制的美味。我也只能回到我制作的极限片上一享沙爹风味的乐趣。共赏!

【Gone were the days 乐趣不复在】

【Gone were the days 乐趣不复在】

I began with collecting FDCs,and particularly fond to have the FDCs REGISTERED going through the mail. Others got their FDCs on the spot, I had to wait a couple of days to have the REGISTERED FDCs delivered to my address.A Registered FDC has a numbered Registered label and bears a traditional metal date stamp of the day. Registered FDC is therefore truly a First Day Cover, the metal date stamping on the cover endorses the true date of the issue of the stamps. Since the introduction of barcode registered labels in lieu of the stamps for Registered mail, I found no fun in sending FDCs by Registered mail anymore, since I have to fork out additional cost to buy the barcode Registered label to have the FDC Registered, the stamps affixed on the FDC can no longer be treated as registration postage. The days are Gone ... it is getting even more absurd when new stamps were put on sale on a later date than the date of issue. It wipes out the realisation of a Registered FDC completely. The coming joint issue with Hong Kong Post has a lapse of 8 days between the First Day of issue and First day of Sale. The term FDC might have to be rewritten, they are no longer "real", perhaps, you may think of a proper term to describe such a cover.
I fancy the days though had to line up in a long queque to buy new stamps and prepare for Registered FDCs,the joy is to receive the Real FDCs delivered at my doorstep. Will like to share a 2001 Registered FDC with a Pos Daftar label of fancy number "7777", not very often I got such a fancy number,however, this adds spice to my collection. 

年少时我就知道邮局发行新邮都会严谨的遵守首日发行的日期,从来不轻易的更改。近年来马来西亚邮政开始变色,许多的新邮不再遵守首日发行,多次的延后发行 屡次发生,叫集邮人无从适从。香港联发新邮铁定 2014年10月9日两地同时发行,又起变卦,香港邮政如期单独发行,大马邮政竟延至 10月17日才出售,出现首日发行与首日发售相差8日的笑话。

以往我喜欢投寄挂号首日封,钟情首日封上有个图案戳再加上一个传统的日期戳和一个挂号标签。挂号首日封有个铁日期,真实赖不了,给首日封添上一小亮点。让 邮局额外上挂号也无需多花费,何乐而不为呢?自从邮局不接受首日封无需多花费挂号寄出,也取消了挂号标签,我也不再收集首日封了。。。想起当年的收集首日 封乐趣,心里感觉嘘唏!

贴一枚2001年自寄的挂号首日封,有首日图案戳,邮局的挂号标签,邮局的普通日戳,很有传统味道的一枚挂号首日封。如今再也没有这么样的制作乐趣了。。感叹!

【A Chinese Style Malaysian Stamp Maximum Card :Chinese Seal】 【 浓浓中国风味的一枚马来西亚邮票极限片:印章】

【A Chinese Style Malaysian Stamp Maximum Card :Chinese Seal】
【 浓浓中国风味的一枚马来西亚邮票极限片:印章】

Pos Malaysia issued a set of stamp to commemorate " 600th Anniversary of the first sail of the Admiral Zheng He", one of the stamp depicts a typical RED Chinese Seal of the Ming Emperor. I was unable to find a postcard of the Ming Emperor's seal, however, I do pocess a set of postcards with all types of Chinese Seals . It was quite pleasant to have this particular Chinese Seal stamp affixed admist the series of Seals, as though the stamp is part of the post card. Can you spot the stamp on the card ? It is a 30 sen stamp, affixed at the bottom left corner of the card, duly cancelled with a First Day of Issue pictorial postmark @ Jalan Laksamana Post Office, where Admiral Zheng He first landed in Melaka. 

马来西亚邮政在2005年发行一套纪念“郑和下西洋600周年”邮票,其中一枚的图画是一个明朝皇帝的玉玺(中国朱砂印章)。当时很想制作一枚浓浓中国味 的极限片,找不到一枚配对的皇帝玉玺,却找得一本中国印章的明信片本。我尝试把30sen邮票贴上去明信片,看到邮票的朱砂印并排在一系列的中国印当中, 效果还真不赖!很高兴制作了一枚浓浓中国风的马来西亚极限片。30sen邮票的所在位置,你们看得到它贴在那里呢?是的,邮票就贴在片的左下角。我以马六 甲红屋邮政局的首日图案戳盖了邮票,因为这一个地点是郑和船队登陆马来西亚的地点。共赏!

【Orang Asli maximum card 马来西亚原住民极限片】



Orang Asli maximum card 马来西亚原住民极限片】

I came to know about the NGO organisations of COAC (Centre for Orang Asli Concerns) and POASM (Persatuan Orang Asli Semanjung Malaysia) when I was searching for the relevant postcards to realise the maximum cards for an ORANG ASLI stamp issue in the year 2010. I noted there is an Orang Asli museum in Gombak, Kuala Lumpur , I made a special trip to the museum to learn more about the Orang Asli Communities and at the same time to look for Orang Asli Postcards. I was introduced by the museum official about Dr. Colin Nicholas, a dedicated anthropologist dedicated to the research and preservation of the identity, culture and future of Orang Asli - the oldest inhabitants in Malaysia. Got hold of a telephone contact, I met Dr. Nicholas Colin personally, was amazed by his dedicated works and enthusiasm on Orang Asli matters, his home is decorated with orang asli original decorative features, and the study room is packed with volumes and volumes of  published books and researched articles on Malaysia Orang Asli matters. Many stories were told on how he assisted in protecting the orang asli settlements from destruction and intrusion of lands by project developments. This was a fruitful trip indeed, I got hold of what I wanted – the sets of precious original postcards printed by the organisation. I realised the postcards into maximum cards, with a pictorial postmark @ Jerantut, Pahang. Sharing with all a maximum card of the traditional hunting weapon of the Orang Asli – Blowpipe.

第一次接触到两个非政府组织 COAC (马来西亚原住民关怀中心)和 POASM (马来西亚半岛原住民协会)是因为我当时正在寻找适合的明信片配合2010年邮政即将发行的原住民邮票,制作极限片。我得知吉隆坡鹅唛有个原住民博物馆,特地驱车去参观,寻找一些有关原住民的资料,也想在馆里买到有关原住民的明信片。 博物馆负责人介绍了我一位博学,钻研马来西亚原住民事物的尼各劳斯先生。我有幸与尼各劳斯博士会面,在其原住民饰物装潢的住家里,我们闲聊。对于博士如此醉心原住民事物工作,感觉赞叹!其办公室布满多册有关原住民的书籍,许多的都出自其手笔,真是不简单!博士道出心声,许多原住民的家在发展的洪流下而被逼搬迁,他在这一方面都在努力协助避免原住民的家园被破坏。这是一次难忘的会面,我也从博士那儿得到我所要的战利品 原汁原味的原住民明信片。我把明信片制成了极限片,盖销的邮戳是彭亨州的而连突。其中一枚极限片是原住民的捕猎器具 吹筒。共赏。

【Pre-Malaysia Maximum Card 马来西亚老极限片】

【Pre-Malaysia Maximum Card 马来西亚老极限片】

Early Malaysian maximum cards are scarce since the collectors then focused on stamp collecting and virtually no one knew about Maximaphily. However, there do exist some early Malaysian maximum cards believed to have been created by tourists or foreign residents in this country. I found this maximum card of the Pre-Malaysia period which was created in the year 1963 when North Borneo (presently Sabah) was NOT even part of the country. The postmark cancellation was done @ Jesselton (former name of Kota Kinabalu), the capital of North Borneo. This is a nice piece of maximum card depicting a clouded leopard which is fully concordant of the image on the card with that of the subject on stamp. A maximum card of age records a little on history makes the collectible interesting. I like it !

马来西亚老极限片稀少,在早年的时代,集邮人多着重于收集邮票,或许那个时候本土还不曾有人知道极限片是什么个东东。然而,老极限片还是存在。一般相信这 一些老极限片多是过境游客或是一些旅居本地的外国人所制。多年前我找到一枚马来西亚成立前的极限片,1963年还没加入马来西亚的北婆罗洲(现称沙巴)云 豹极限片。盖的邮戳是杰西顿 (亚庇旧称)。一枚极限片上的邮戳记录了历史。我喜欢!

【Leather Maximum Card - Rabbit 皮革极限片:兔子】

【Leather Maximum Card - Rabbit 皮革极限片:兔子】

There are leather made, flimsy , they are NOT in the form of a Card, however, they are named postcards instead of post-leathers. Leather postcards were commonly found in the States in the early years where leather was easily and cheaply available. It is no longer practical and cheap to have postcards produced in the form of leather. I have this RABBIT leather postcard in my collection for years. I thought it was a great idea to have it turned into a Maximum Card instead, and here it is the RABBIT maximum card (leather) realised in the year 2011.

皮革明信片,柔软,不是纸皮所制却也冠于明信片之称,怎不叫明信皮革呢? 皮革明信片在早期的美国随处可见,当时的皮革取之容易,价钱也廉宜。到了今天,动物的皮革逐渐稀少,制造皮革明信片实也不符经济效益咯!我的这一枚 “兔子”皮革明信片收藏多年,终于让我在 2011 年邮政发行“兔子”邮票时,制作了一枚皮革极限片了。共赏!

【A wooden Maximum Card - KL international Airport 木质极限片-吉隆坡机场】

【A wooden Maximum Card - Engineering Excellence Project : KLIA 木质极限片-吉隆坡机场】

Numeral years ago, I bought this wooden postcard from a Pet shop in Mid-Valley. I could NOT understand why a Pet shop selling solely pet animals had these unique wooden postcards for Sale ? A 5mm thick wooden piece postcard weighs 100 gm, I wonder whether anybody had ever tried to send such a postcard by mail ? What would be the postage for such a postcard ?

Anyway, I like the KLIA Airport picture on the wooden postcard,i Kept the postcard till the day I realised it as a maximum card when the Engineering Excellence   Stamp issue was officially launched on 24.01.2005. I made a trip to the KLIA post office to have the official cancellation of the "KL International Airport" pictorial postmark.

多年前,我在吉隆坡商场的一间宠物店买下这一枚木质明信片。我在想一间专门售卖小动物的专卖店为何会这么样的明信片出售呢?一枚 5 公分厚度,重约 100 克的明信片,是否有人尝试把它投入邮筒寄出去呢?那邮资又会是多少钱呢?

我喜欢这一枚木质明信片上的吉隆坡机场图画,买了下来珍藏了多年。一直到 2015.1.24 邮政发行吉隆坡机场纪念邮票时,我才把它制作了一枚极限片。我专程驱车到机场邮政局盖了“吉隆坡国际机场”的首日专印。

“A helping Hand” silhouette maximum card “给他人一个援手” 剪影极限片

剪影是攝影技巧的一种,即利用逆光造成的亮度及黑暗之间強烈对比,让主体呈現出黑暗的轮廓,以有別於一般让主体清晰可見的照片。依据极限片准则,剪 影构不成一枚和谐的极限片,黑黑一团轮廓,与邮票主题鲜艳夺目色彩,差距甚大。剪影是一门艺术,让人很容易从其轮廓而分辨出来它是什么?因此若隐若现的剪 影也叫人特别喜欢。我特喜欢剪影,玩玩剪影极限,别有一番情趣!欣赏剪影极限,只能把极限规则搁一旁。

A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. Strictly speaking silhouette subjects could NOT be regarded as concordance, since the subjects can ONLY be recognized from their outlines. Silhouette is a kind of professional art, simply by its outline, one can easily tell what the subject is. I particularly like silhouette subjects, therefore, I am creating maximum cards in silhouette. Whilst realizing these silhouette maximum cards, I will have to leave the Maximaphily Rules aside.

I created the following Maximum card on " A helping Hand " in silhouette.

【A Replica Card of the Merdeka Stamp 2014 国庆纪念邮票原图卡】

Pos Malaysia issued a replica card along with the Merdeka Stamp issued on 31st, August, 2014.  The picture card is a larger blown up image of the stamp. Although the card does NOT qualify to be a maximum card, however, for record purpose, I proceeded to fix a stamp on the picture face of the card and cancelled with the Pictorial cachet available on the Date of Issue.

Wishing All Malaysians a Happy Malaysia Day which falls on the 16th September, 2014.

I like this postage stamp issued by the United States Postal Services in the year 1969 for the APOLLO 8 Mission. The stamp depicts a close impression of the EARTH as seen from the MOON. In a little corner of the stamp, an inscription as taken from the first chapter of the HOLY BIBLE Genesis 1:1 "In the Beginning, God created the heaven and the Earth."

In 2012 Pos Malaysia Bhd issued a set of stamps " Malaysian Festivals " (Perayaan di Malaysia) and one of the Chinese Festivals featured on one of the stamps is related to "Mid Autumn Festival". It is the first time Mid Autumn Festival is depicted on a Malaysian stamp. However, I do NOT quite like the translation in Bahasa for the Festival as " Perayaan Kuih Bulan " which does NOT reflect the festival in the actual sense.

【57th Anniversary of Merdeka 国庆57周年纪念】
Pos Malaysia issued a stamp to commemorate the 57th Anniversary of Merdeka today. ( Although the postmark is 31.8.2014, the stamp is ONLY sold on 2.9.2014)
I found this postcard depicting a hand rendering an assistance to a little hand which is similar to the main theme of the stamp, I realised (in Maximaphily, the word "realise" is used to mean "create") a maximum card.
I am particularly fond of the wise words printed on the card :
ALWAYS LOOK OUT FOR OPPORTUNITIES
TO GIVE SOMEONE A HELPING HAND,
YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU WILL NEED ONE !

今天邮政发行一枚独立57周年纪念邮票。 (虽然邮戳刻的是 31.8.2014,邮局迟至 2.9.2014 才售卖新邮。)
我找到这枚一只手牵引另一只小手的明信片,觉得极其吻合邮票的主题,因此我制作了一枚极限片收藏。
我特喜欢片上书写的智慧语句:
时刻给予他人一个援手,
你不晓得何时你也须要这么一个援手。

【马航机组人员二度受创,寄予深切的慰问】

【马航机组人员二度受创,寄予深切的慰问】

飞行员曾是我年少的一个梦想,自由翱翔天空,周游各国。马航更是我梦想踏入的一个大家庭。没想到马航在2014年在前后相隔130个日子,两艘波音777客机发生大事故,MH370至今音讯全无,MH17被击落坠毁。折损乘客约 5百人,机组人员约 30人,这或许是民航历史上在同一个年份折损率最高的航空公司。马航全体同仁在两次的空难事件上,蒙受心灵上的创伤。在此寄予马航机组同仁最深切的慰问。

在马航1997年庆祝50周年纪念时,也没忘记把马航机组人员的风采给记录在我制作的极限片上。我采用了一枚马航 30sen 邮票,贴在一枚马航明信片,盖销了一个马航50周年纪念的邮戳。共赏。

【坚决终止种族政治】- 黛安娜

【坚决终止种族政治】- 黛安娜

黛安娜败选安顺,却留下一句话【坚决终止种族政治】,很是中听!

国家走过近60年的历史,经历了13届大选,政治框架总离不开种族。政坛吵吵闹闹,政客借种族课题炒作,国家的政治在原地踏步,丝毫没有突破,各族之间的和谐是越来越脆弱。
马来西亚曾是一个国际的典范,各种族和谐共处之道是许多国家学习的榜样。曾经有人建议人民以马来西亚族自居,淡化种族之分,然而却有人紧抱种族主义不放,担心因此而失去了种族的特权,马来西亚族只能沦为空谈。近些年来,更有人高谈“入侵论”“感恩论”,不惜摧毁长期以来建立的种族和谐。

【坚决终止种族政治】是一句不容易从一个拥有国家特权的人口中冒出来的话,那是需要很大的勇气!当权者没胆量说出此豪语,也不愿意这么说!当初提倡1马,让人感觉有点相似【坚决终止种族政治】,来到马年,那口号是越喊越没力气了!至今没人知道1马是什么?

我特喜欢这一枚2002年发行的“马来西亚族”邮票,长长的一个横幅图画里有马来西亚各民族,一片和谐的景象。我也找到相关的明信片“united colors of Malaysia”,感觉很配邮票。我把邮票贴在明信片,盖销了一个邮戳,制成了一枚和谐的马来西亚族极限片。希望你们会喜欢。

“朱”古力有难了

“朱”古力有难了

Chocolate 好吃,中文音译名称有“朱”古力,巧克力。我国最近验出某品牌“朱”古力含猪脱氧核糖核酸成分,被令从市场上下架回收,这一突发事故,对于“朱”古力公司影响深远。“朱”古力近“朱”不赤则黑,还真黑!事件扩大了,还恐“株”连九族,“朱”古力前景堪忧!处世为人就得有巧思,我想,chocolate 宜撇清近“朱”,巧克力这名字灵巧可取!

日前到五金店购买油漆扫,老板问“清真认证的吗?”老板有如此一问还真叫我哗然!前阵子某超级市场把购物手推车划分“清真”与“非清真”引起掀然大波。刚刚才从新闻里听到,某人称谓吃下朱古力,体内的血再也不洁净了!国家开始步向一个荒诞时期,我在怀疑我们到底生活在那一个时代呢?人民若是再进一步的给划分下去,更精更细,什么都讲“清真”,那我可站的地方就所剩无几了!不要觉得惊讶,有一天,弥漫在空中让我们自由呼进吐出的空气也要谈“清真”,只有戴上一个“清真”口罩才得呼吸一口清新的空气!我在想,人怎么就不嫌“不清真”的花花绿绿钞票腥味重呢?在我说,在这一片土地,首要任务要做的就是“清真”钞票,毕竟钞票的流通层面大。每个人都在频密地接触钞票,怎就不觉得“girly”?

邮票与钞票一样,还没到区分“清真”“不清真”的地步,很难想象有那一日的到来!遭罪呀!贴一枚出自欧洲的巧克力极限片,荷兰巧克力,不保证“清真”,悉赏尊便!
