I made my first trip to Fraser Hill in my life on 9.10.2010 for the creation of a Maximum Card on the local Post Office

I have NOT been to Fraser Hill before, although since my younger days, I had heard of the hill resort many a times. It was the urge to create a maximum card of the Bukit Fraser Post Office , I made a trip to this little hill resort town on 09.10.2010 . It was NOT an easy driving route with narrow and winding paths, the worst of it was the uphill and downhill traffics were controlled by the odd and even hours of the day. I missed by 5 minutes of the odd hours, and I had to wait for more than an hour to have the downhill traffic cleared before I could proceed my route up the hill. It took minutes to complete the cancellation of the maximum cards and some First Day covers, however, I had to travell few hundred Kilometers and many hours of time wasting to get the mission done. Anyway, it was an "enjoyable" trip , in the sense that I had my valuable maximum card done.

You are a very passionate maximaphilist, going extra miles,and out of your way.
Great MC, even if it doesn't look to me that the building on the stamp is exactly like in the postcard. Am I wrong? :)

Then the postcard shows a newer (older?) image, with covered entrance and fence posts. :)
