This is an old picture of the Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu temple of Singapore. For all you crazy letter enthusiasts, this is the Tamil spelling: ஸ்ரீ மாரியம்மன் கோவில்.

These stamps commemorates 49 years of independence. Singapore gained independence from the UK in 1965 after a referendum, just like Scotland did 50 years later.

Information regarding the location of the photographer are welcome.

Cool your beers and get exited for the 2016 UEFA European Championship - provided that you like football, otherwise there's still blowing soap bubbles or drinking tea for you. And why does the UK get to send three teams?

This amazing place is Hạ Long Bay in North Vietnam. If you intend to propose to your girl, take her there to make it a surefire thing. Make sure not to bring other people there, as you'll get married either way.

On February 8th, 2016, the Year of the Monkey began, thus the stamp. There appears to be a pink one as well, if you happen to have it, send it to me on a postcard please.
