Terence sent me this beautiful FDC from Singapore, thank you very much! It was issued on January 8, 2010, and commemorates the Chinese Year of the Tiger. There is an additional cancellation of the Zodiac Fair from January 6 to 10.

On the back Jan Ang attached an additional stamp of 50 cent: the Christmas stamp of 2006.
