Thanks Nasia for the second cover from Cyprus ;-) It reaches me after 7 days.Three stamps franked on the cover were from the issue of "Farm Animals", issued on 17 March 2010. Another stamp is the Refugee stamp reprinted in 2009.
This ticket (with serial number 7221) may look old-fashioned but i like it very much. I understood from the train staff that this kind of ticket will be issued only when their computer system is down. The destination is stated as "Singapura" which is actually refered to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, the terminal station in Singapore. I should also purchase one for Woodlands although it sounds ridiculous based on the short distant, as i understand that the destination will be stated as "Woodlands" for Woodlands Railway Station. I paid three Ringgit for the train ticket from Johor Bahru to Singapura.
Merci Khemissi pour ce courrier de Algérie :-))) The 19th FIFA World Cup cover was sent from Setif, Algeria on 29 May. This cover took 17 days to reach Singapore. The stamps ("Coupe du Monde de Football Afrique du Sud 2010") had the preview sale on 8 and 9 May.Algeria managed to qualify to two consecutive World Cups in 1982 and 1986. Algeria also won the Africa Cup of Nations once in 1990 when they hosted the tournament. In November 2009, Algeria beat Egypt in a World Cup qualification to secure a place at the 2010 World Cup.
Geronimo Stilton is a best-selling children's book series published by Edizioni Piemme of Milan, Italy, since 2000. In the series, the title character is a talking mouse who lives in New Mouse City on Mouse Island. A best-selling author, Geronimo Stilton works as a journalist for the fictional newspaper The Rodent's Gazette. He has a younger sister (Thea Stilton), a cousin (Trap Stilton) and a favourite little nephew (Benjamin Stilton). Geronimo is a nervous, mild-mannered mouse who would like nothing better than to live a quiet life, but he keeps getting involved in far-away adventures with Thea, Trap, and Benjamin. The books are written as though they are autobiographical adventure stories. The book was originated in Italy but had been translated into 35 languages.
