Many thanks to Wong Hiu Fan for this nice FDC ! She sent this cover on 1.Oct.2009 from Hong Kong. And the stamp affixed on the cover is 2.40 HK Dollar, which is just the airmail postage from Hong Kong to Mainland China for 20g letter.
Many thanks to Mr. Huang Zhenbang for this nice FDC from New York! I collect real postal FDC's of next year (Year of the Tiger), and if you're from Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Macau or Ireland, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Wat Pho (วัดโพธิ์), or Wat Phra Chetuphon (วัดพระเชตุพน) as it is generally known to the Thais, is mainly famous for the huge Reclining Buddha statue it houses. At 20 acres large, it is the largest Wat in Bangkok, and is technically the oldest too, as it was built around 200 years before Bangkok became Thailand's capital. However, today the Wat today bears virtually no resemblance to that originally constructed, as it was almost entirely rebuilt by Rama I when the capital was moved to Bangkok. It holds the dual honors of having both Thailand's largest reclining Buddha image and the most number of Buddha images in Thailand.
Work for a Swiss company in Shanghai, East of Shanghai. Great passion for stamp, card and FDC collecting. Visited the Faroe Islands as lucky winner invited by Posta stamps. Do not hesitate to contact me if you'd like to swap with me.
