STAMP 1

Special Stamp Issue - '12 Western Zodiac Signs' issued on 1 November 2012 (Thursday).

Gemini : The twins Castor and Pollux were known for their brotherly love for each other. Pollux sought Zeus' approval for giving his own life to Castor who lost his life on the battlefield. Deeply moved, Zeus took both of them to the sky. The twins then became the constellation Gemini. Mercury is the planetary ruler of Gemini. A Gemini is quick-witted, good at communication and eager to learn with a thirst for new knowledge.


Thank you Una.
STAMP 2

Special Stamp Issue - 'Chinese and Western Wedding Customs' issued on 23 July 2013 (Tuesday).

$2.40 – 'Gift Presentation' in traditional Chinese wedding etiquette is very much like a betrothal ceremony. On the day of 'Gift Presentation', the groom’s family will pay a visit to the bride’s family, bringing gift money, bridal cakes, coconuts, tea leaves, etc. to make a formal marital pledge.

In this stamp issue, red and gold, popular colours for Chinese celebrations, are used in three of the stamps to emphasise the cheerful bustle of Chinese weddings.
