Hari Raya Stamps

We will be celebrating the end of the fasting month soon. In Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore, the festival would be known as Hari Raya Eid Fitri. Most other countries would just say celebrating the Eid Fitr. Surprisingly, I don't ever remember seeing any stamps produced specifically for the celebrations by any of the Muslim countries. So, I was pleasantly surprised to receive these two sets of stamps from my good friend, Kai in Australia. He sent me these stamps which came from his own personal collection and hoped that these would come at the right time. Yes indeed Kai! The stamps came in time for the Hari Raya celebrations.


The first set is from Christmas Islands. I checked and found out that these stamps were issued in 1989.


The second set is from Keeling or Cocos Islands and these were issued in 1991.

Thank you Kai! And Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri to you...

Take a pleasurable stroll down to the extraordinary Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple. Acclaimed for it's remarkable visits and notable character, one of the finest spots in the city is Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple. Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple is certainly a spot you certainly ought to undergo while in Singapore.
