Malaysia VI

Final Malaysia card features a sunrise view from the roof of Penang's Eastern and Oriental Hotel, a famous hotel from the colonial era opened in 1885. It was built by a group of Armenian brothers, the Sarkies, who would later go on to open some of Southeast Asia's most iconic hotels, including Raffles in Singapore and The Strand in Rangoon. The hotel is part of the "Melaka and George Town, Historic Cities of the Straits of Malacca" World Heritage site.

Previously featured hydrangea stamp, with a nice hand cancellation this time.
