This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

Unusual Stamp from Hongkong on Cover
Recently received this FDC from Hong Kong. A beautiful addition to my collection of unusual and odd-shaped stamps on cover. The FDC and stamp are part of the Special stamp issue - "Hong Kong Buses" released on 24th September 2013.
The $20 Stamp is printed in lithography and has a lenticular effect. Three Euro V buses are set against a backdrop of the magnificent views of Victoria Harbour in the daytime, at twilight and at night to signify the round-the-clock bus services in Hong Kong. Here is a closer look at the stamp.
