The morning rays in a rubber estate (maxi card) 橡胶园里的晨曦 (极限片)

During the childhood days in the kampong (village), everywhere is nature, you can embrace the nature, experience the sun rises and sun sets. In the rubber plantations, you can see the morning rays shine across the neatly planted rows of rubber trees, what a splendid picture of the nature. Those were the days to remember. The above maximum card captures the old memories of the days in the rubber plantation.
儿时接触的到处都是自然, 你能环抱自然, 观看日出与日落, 看那晨曦穿过整齐排列的橡胶树, 真是别有一翻景象. 橡胶园极限片不难叫我回顾童年的快乐.

Rubber plantations (Maximum Card) 橡胶园 (极限片)

Rubber is a primary product of Malaysia. Malaysia is one of the biggest exporters of rubber.
A postcard of an artwork depicting an early morning scene of a rubber plantation is used to realise a Maximum Card. The picture recalls my childhood memories of the life in the rubber plantations, full of freedom and fresh air everywhere. Really enjoy the days where we used to catch fish in the streams in the rubber plantations.

Wau Bulan is simply beautiful! (Maximum Card) 美丽的大马传统风筝(极限片)

Wau Bulan (the Moon Kite ) is simply graceful and beautiful when it flies in the sky. It is equally beautiful when captured on the maximum card. The most appropriate place for the cancellation of a postmark of concordance will be a post office in the State of Kelantan, since, Wau Bulan is a traditional kite commonly made and played by the locals of the State. A pictorial First Day of Issue postmark was selected to make the cancellation on the maximum card since it has a concordant pictorial Wau which ties nicely with the stamp and card.
