Dragon Boat Race 2008


The Miniature Sheet affixed on the top right corner was issued on 1st August 2008 to commemorate the International Dragon Boat Federation Club Crew World Championship 2008 held in Penang, Malaysia.

For this stamp issue, there are 3 designs of stamps and a miniature sheet which portray the dragon boat race as a sport that promotes positive values including teamwork and friendship. Members from each team can be seen to be full of concentration at the respective roles; paddlers rowing hard to a synchronized drumbeat by a drummer and the steerer at the rear of the boat controlling the direction of the boat. Dragon Boat racing is an ancient traditional sport which is now shared and enjoyed by people all around the world.


What caught my attention was that this is actually an imperforate Miniature Sheet!

I did some research and found that the imperforate MS is a limited edition and only sold at the philately counter of the Pos Malaysia headquarter in Kuala Lumpur. So I guess i must be a lucky guy to own one!
