Malaysia II

Postcard showing Orang Asli people of Peninsular Malaysia preparing a meal by baking rice and tapioca in bamboo tubes. Orang Asli is a collective term used to refer to the various tribes of people who are indigenous to Malaysia, and who, unfortunately, often face similar treatment to indigenous peoples else where in the world with high rates of poverty and lower life expectancies.

Stamp depicts the bigleaf hydrangea, a common garden plant whose flower colour varies between pink and purple, depending on the soil pH.
