Anniversary of DAD leaving us peacefully 10 years ago 爸,怀念你在这一天,你的离开,转眼已是一个10年

Dad left us peacefully 10 years ago ( Lunar Calendar 13th day of the 8th Month ). Time flies ,it is the 10th anniversary of the death of DAD. Dad was a quiet person, it was hard to read the sorrows and worries on the face of DAD, he would keep everything in his heart, perhaps, the ONLY person he spoke his heart out was with MUM.  There were much hardship DAD had gone through in his life and all these stories were told through MUM. I will like to seek for DAD's pardon for whatever I had DONE mistake in life. Mistakes made are irreversible, they are there in my life to repent. Dad, you are in my memory on this 10th Anniversary and a word of thanks for pulling me through the hardship.

Relising MCs at Philanippon 2011,Yokohama, Japan 日本横滨世界邮展尝试制作极限片

It is NOT cheap to realise a Maximum Card in JAPAN as compared to the scenario in Malaysia. Firstly, the cost of an ordinary postcard is selling at 157yen ( i.e ~ RM 6.20 ), about 6 times the cost of a card in Malaysia. Secondly, the value of the postage stamp,  a stamp of normal face value cost 80yen (~ RM 3.20) . Hence, an ordinary stamp + an ordinary card cost approx. 237yen or RM 9.50, many times the cost of producing a maximum card in Malaysia. However, since I was at Yokohama for Philanippon 2011 World Philatelic Exhibition, I would NOT miss the opportunity to realise some MCs for keeping.  Having made the decision to realise MCs, following I began to worry whether the Japan Postal Staffs are capable of making good postmark cancellation on a slippery surfaced postcard. If the postal staff failed me, I would waste the monies in buying the stamps and postcards. Was glad that the experienced postal staff of the Japan Post did perfect job on the cancellation on all of my maximum cards. Many thanks to the Japan Post.  The excellent cancellation work performed by the postal staff is an asset to the maximum card collectors, I was thinking, if I am living in Japan, I would make use of this asset to produce many maximum cards. However, in a strong traditional based philatelic environment in Japan, there is hardly anyone realising Maximum cards @ Philanippon 2011 .....
