Malaysia: Malaysian Primates (Year of the Monkey)

Some days ago I received this nice envelope from Malaysia. On the envelope I received the set of Malaysian Primates to celebrate The Years of the Monkey. The collection features illustrations of four primate species which could be found in the Malaysian forest, namely the Silvered Leaf Monkey, Macaque, White-handed Gibbon, and Agile Gibbon.

Malaysian Primates (Year of the Monkey) - Issued: 26-01-2016

With this nice envelope I received several other things. First of all is this nice card from Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur is the national capital and most populous global city in Malaysia. The city covers an area of 243 km2 (94 sq mi) and has an estimated population of 1.6 million as of 2010. Greater Kuala Lumpur, covering similar area as the Klang Valley, is an urban agglomeration of 7.5 million people as of 2012. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in South-East Asia, in terms of population and economy. In the left background you can see the famous Petronas Twintowers of Kuala Lumpur.


I also received with this envelope the full mint set of Hong Kong's Year of the Monkey Issue:



And last but not least, also the full mint set of Singapore's Year of the Monkey Issue in a nice presentation pack:



Many Thanks for this great stuff to GK!
