Introduction


Thank you for visiting my blog, what you are about to see are most of the 
postmarks that I designed for the Singapore Philatelic Museum since 2004

I am not a museum curator, only a volunteer philatelist. 
My main interest are collecting thematic stamps.  
All these postmarks were designed for yearly 
special events such as New Year, 
National Day and Festive Celebrations.
