A postcard received long time ago from Greece...

It shows some of the buildings in Xanthi, in the eastern Greece. The landmark building, a clock tower in the centre square of the city is on the left. Also showing here are the street scene and its building in the old city. Thanks Olya.

This postcard was sent from Volos on 16.1.2006 (I think so). The stamp used for sending this postcard is the basketball team (€0.65).

My third trip to to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, on the Borneo Island. Another business trip...

Found a postcard on Kinabalu Park at shopping complex. The postcard shows the Mt. Kinabalu in the background during sunrise. Only the peak is partially seen. Mt. Kinabalu is the geographical landmark of Kinabalu Park, the first UNESCO heritage site in Malaysia. This mountain is situated in the Crocker Range on the eastern coast of Sabah and also the highest mountain (4,095m) in Southeast Asia, geographically.

Using a self-prepared stamp that shows the Mt. Kinabalu's Low's Peak (30 sen) and posted the postcard at GPO Kota Kinabalu on 18.2.2009. It ends up with dissapointment as the meter cancellation only shows the date (19.2.2009) and the place that do stamping is not there!
