Welcome to PSMonline Forum.
You can buy new stamps at GPO and some other bigger post offices around.
Kindly follow "Malaysia new stamp issue" thread to have the first hand information on Malaysia new issues.

Happy collecting.

The main one is at Dayabumi General Post Office which has a Philatelic Bureau.
There is also a post office at Sentul , but no philatelic counter here.
There is also a post office on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, on the opposite side of Maju Junction.
Perhaps if you ask your working colleagues, they may be able to show you some of the other post offices.

Just a note of reminder that GPO only sells FDC on the first day itself, past issues are not being sold there :geek: :geek:

You can find it in the post office located in Bandar Sri Damansara (near Kepong or Sungai Buloh).

Dear Ronny,

I am not sure about pictorial cancellations. But this post-office do sell the new issue on the day of issue.

I just checked with the postal staff there last Saturday, who told me that there is always one person (not sure whether guy or girl?) who will be the first in queue and will buy the first day issue. The staff also informed that the recent Railways new issue was "sapu" by this person and only THREE people (including this person) had managed to buy complete set!

I am not too sure about FDC as I never managed to buy any FDC or done any cancellation there! Maybe you want to try....!
