Give stamp collecting a chance

The New Straits Times in Maylasia ran an article recently promoting stamp collecting and asking its readers to give the hobby a chance.

Writer Su Aziz pens, "Now, before you think it is the silliest thing to do in this almost paperless world, give postage stamp collecting a chance. Or at least this article about stamp collecting."

He goes on to say, "About 30 years ago, Mum would think up activities to keep me occupied, especially during school holidays. There were plenty of activities she thought up but few remained as a hobby with me — reading and postage stamp collecting are the only two."

After giving readers tips on how to get their children started collecting stamps, he concludes with, "Once they are into the stamp-in-the-water bit, they will miraculously sit quietly and wait for the drying out too. That will give you a few hours of peace."
