Earlier this morning, my family and I left our house to go to the launching of the latest stamps issued, The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II at Kuala Lumpur main post office in Dayabumi Complex. Please click here for more information about the stamps.
We arrived around 8:30am and were surprised to see an extremely long queue of people waiting to buy The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. My little sister, Anisah fainted while waiting and so she took a seat in the Stamp Gallery. While waiting for our turn, we made friends with three friendly people who shared lots of interesting facts on stamps.
They opened a special counter for senior citizens so that the old people won’t have to line up in the extremely long queue.
After almost 4 long hours queuing, it is finally our turn to buy the stamps. Unfortunately, the stamp sheets were sold out and only loose ones were available.
Just around five minutes after we bought our stamps, the POS Malaysia staffs put up a few posters notifying that the folder were sold out. We were lucky that we had already bought ours.
They also have a special counter where we can buy the First Day Covers. After buying the first day covers, we pasted the stamps onto them.
Then we had to queue in another line to get our first day covers and folders stamped.
At about 1:10 pm, new stock of stamp sheets arrived.
My heels and ankles are aching now after the 4 long hours of standing 😉
