#215 Malaysia 09/10/09

This beautiful FDC was sent to me by Terence from Johor Bahru, thank you very much!

The stamp set and FDC were issued on October 9, 2009. They commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

This legally binding treaty calls on all citizens of the world, from its leaders to each one of us; women, men, girls and boys, to live up to our duties to ensure every child survives and thrives, free of hunger, want, neglect and abuse.

The CRC demands from every one of us, as part of a caring society, to place children at the heart of human development. Not only because this offers a strong return on our investment; nor because the vulnerability of childhood calls upon our compassion; but rather because that is every child’s right.

malaysia-081111FDC from Malaysia, posted on November 11, 2008.

This FDC consists of a cover showing an image of the seashell Strombus canarium and the inscription “Cengkerang Laut, Seashells of Malaysia”. There is a part of the “seashells” mini-sheet attached. From left to right the stamps show the shells Triton’s trumpet (Charonia tritonis), frog shell (Tutufa rubeta), horned helmet (Cassis cornuta), and burnt murex (Chicoreus brunneus).

Seashells are the hard, protective layer of a marine animal, typically that of marine invertebrates. Seashells are commonly attributed to marine molluscs which has various sub-categories such as gastropods (e. g. snails), bivalves (e. g. clams), and chitons.

Seashells are commonly found deposited along the sea shore by waves and tides. Only the shells are washed up unto the beach empty and clean, the animal already having died and rotted away or have been eaten by predators or scavengers. Seashells come in a variety of shape, sizes and colours depending on the species. The presence of a particular species in the area is usually indicative of the water quality and hydrology.

There is nothing to add to this image description on the back …

The two postage stamps have a face value of 20 and 30 sen. The left stamp is an issue of the state of Selangor; it depicts the flower Hippeastrum reticulatum. The right stamp depicts the toad Pedostibes hosii (Kodok Pokok).
