Unesco day! I had a big surprise on my mailbox today: 2 covers with the Malaysian Unesco stamps and the pre-paid card.

They are very beautiful stamps. 2 of them are bigger than the other 4.

How to kill an awesome cover... stealing a fox!

Yesterday I received an (another) example of how mean people can be. The damage on the envelope is acceptable, it was fully packed but stealing one stamp, damaging the whole set?

I can't stop looking at the missing fox... :/
