The Stamp and Philately Unit, Pos Malaysia Berhad is organising a stamp week starting from the 19th of November until the 25th of November 2012 at AEON AU2 Shopping Centre, Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur. This year, the stamp launched in conjunction of the stamp week is the ‘Children’s Hobbies‘ series.

I was very disappointed to know that the stamps launched in conjunction of the stamp week featured the ‘BoBoiBoy’ cartoon series. Not to say that I do not support Malaysian productions but the story does not promotes much good values. I would say that it is just another cartoon series that is a waste of time for kids to watch. In fact, during the stamp week and they should launch some other themes which is more related to philately. Last year’s stamps which were launched in conjunction with the stamp week were far exciting and the stamps were lovely and unique.
I think they should not have used the BoBoiBoy characters for the stamps for the cartoon series promotes a lot of bad values like their horrible manners and the characters do not speak in proper Bahasa Malaysia (Malay language).
Though for stamp lovers, please make a trip to the AEON AU2 Shopping Centre for the Stamp Week before the Stamp Week ends.
