I am SL Liew : Postcards and stamps

Hi,
I am a Penangite and collect stamps since childhood. I can never throw away an envelope that has a stamp. I have to save that stamp :lol:

I am now actively collecting a postcard that is stamped, written to my address and sent without envelope from every country and territory. I am also collecting 10 postcards from every country as one postcard cannot adequately represent a country.

At the moment, I have 223 countries but the remaining missing 28 countries like Chad, Tokelau, Diego Garcia (BIOT), etc are most challenging.

Also I have started to collect 10 written stamped postcards mailed individually from each country from different senders is a mega project.

For Asean countries, I only got 10 or more postcards from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia... and still wanting from countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Brunei, Laos, Timor Leste and Myanmar.

So I need plenty of patient, help and luck. I also collect from every state in Malaysia and it is not easy to find a postcard from Negri Sembilan. :shock:

Do visit my blog and enjoy my postcard and stamp scans and help me if you can. You may have a contact from different places through your philatelic exchanges. Thanks. ;)

Smspenang,

You might be able to create more interest in this area among members if you can shares some scans of these postcards that you collect. Perhaps others may get in touch with you to exchange them or post to you in exchange for those that you post to them. In this way, you might very easily be able to get someone in Negri Sembilan to post some postcards to you.

Cheers

Andrew

Thanks for showing the reverse. Nice stamps too.
You might want to blank out your address if you want to keep it private.
