On the first day of Chinese New Year, 23rd January, the Singapore Philatelic Museum opened the doors to this year’s Dragon exhibition, which is a great success!

They’ve received more than 100 postcards, that have been placed in a special album on the Dragon’s Lair. Mishelle Lim, who works at the museum (and has been busy replying to all received postcards!), tells us that both adults and children like to peruse the album and read the messages on them!

Once again, thank you to everyone who participated, and if you’re ever in Singapore, do visit the Philatelic Musem! :)

dragons

The Singapore Philatelic Museum is once again preparing their annual exhibition dedicated to the Chinese Zodiac, this time featuring… dragons! These magical creatures have inspired legends and stories all around the world – from Saint George and the dragon, to Watatsumi, Tianlong or even… Dragon Ball!

No matter the dragon you know best, the Singapore Philatelic Museum would like you to share it with their visitors! So please send your dragon postcards to:

Singapore Philatelic Museum
23B Coleman Street
Singapore 179807

Mishelle Lim, who works at the museum, tells us that many visitors, young and old stop to admire and read the postcards sent by the postcrossers.
The exhibitions are usually very interactive, and especially attractive to the younger visitors of the museum – so please send a message to the little ones! You can tell them about your favourite dragon, or just say hi! Bonus points if you can find stamps with dragons as well!

As usual, all cards received before the end of the year will receive a reply from the museum – so don’t forget to include your address.

PS – Curious about what these exhibitions look like? Take a look at the previous editions!

By now, many Postcrossing users are familiar with the Singapore Philatelic Museum and its very impressive Chinese New Year exhibitions.

Previous editions such as A rat’s tale, A Cow and Bull Story and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Danger were a big success, and included the participation of your themed postcards.

Next week starts the Year of the Rabbit, and once again, the Singapore Philatelic Museum invites you to take part in this year’s exhibition by sending in your bunny postcards (extra points for bunny stamps!) to:

Mishelle Lim
(Year of the Rabbit exhibition)
Singapore Philatelic Museum
23B Coleman Street

Singapore

Apart from being featured in the museum walls, all postcards received until the 15th 22nd of February will receive a thank you card from Mishelle, so don’t forget to include your address!

What are you waiting for? Hop hop! :)

Every year, Postcrossing collaborates with the Singapore Philatelic Museum with one very special exhibition. But it’s not just every year, it’s every Chinese new year! The exhibit celebrates the Chinese Zodiac animals: Year of the Rat, Year of the Ox and, the current one, the Year of the Tiger.

A few month ago, we have requested Postcrossers from all over the world to send them postcards with tigers that they used to display in their exhibition: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Danger. And, as always, Postcrossers have excelled in their contribution and offered a shower of postcards.

Mishelle at the Musueum shared some photos that we now share with you all:

Happy 2010!

While half of the world has already put away their celebratory hats and champagne cups, some are still stocking on fireworks for another big celebration… the Chinese New Year! On February 14th begins the Year of the Tiger… which means… it’s time for another exhibition at the Singapore Philatelic Museum!

On previous years, these collaborations resulted in amazing exhibitions (Year of the Rat, Year of the Ox) and so, once again, the museum is asking the Postcrossing community for submissions. This time the theme is, of course, tigers! You can mail your postcards and/or stamps featuring these big felines to:

Mishelle Lim
(Year of the Tiger exhibition)
Singapore Philatelic Museum
23B Coleman Street,
Singapore 179807
Singapore

Mishelle at the Philatelic Museum promises to reply to all the cards received till February 10th, so what are you waiting for?

Happy Year of the Tiger! Xin nian kuai le!
