Sunday Stamps 017 and 018: Two entries, one post


To make up for my absence last week, I'm posting two entries today. Here are my stamps for last week's theme, mainland Asia:

The stampset above were issued in 1990 by the Vietnamese Ministry of Posts consisting of six values issued together in se-tenant block of six stamps. All the six stamps in this set form a composite illustration depicting one of the popular Vietnamese folktale, Thạch Sanh.  

For this week's theme, Oceania and Island-nations, here I present the stamps from Indonesia, the world's most largest archipelago (with more than 13,000 islands, much more than the Philippines 7,000 odd-islands) and the most populous country in the world after China, India, and the United States.

These are two definitives issued in 2001 by the Indonesia Postal Office under the theme “Ucapan Selamat” or Greeting Stamps.

I thought about posting stamps from Indonesia but mine were boring - just past presidents. It's becoming apparent to me each week that my stamps are generally older than those of other participants.

I do like folk tales on stamps, these are so pretty. I wonder if that is a dragon or snake. Although I do remember a saying that was Chinese rather than Vietnamese of "do not despise the snake for one day he may be dragon"

I particularly love the Vietnamese stamps but the ones from Indonesia are very pretty.

I really like the Vietnamese se-tenant stamps. I like seeing the stamps all together.
