2 Awesome Malaysian Covers!

Two awesome covers to kick start this new week. Many thanks to Khor Kok Keong!
The 5 se-tenant stamps franked on both covers belong to the "Freshwater Fish & Aquatic Plant" series. They were issued in 1999.
While the lovely flower stamp belongs to the "Garden Flowers of Malaysia" state definitive series, issued on 31 Dec 2007. In total, Malaysia Post issued 84 stamps! 6 values for each of the 13 states of the federation and 6 for Malaysia. Each stamp features the portrait of the sultan and the coat of arms of each state, except stamps of the states of Malacca, Penang, Sabah and Sarawak, headed by governors, on which we can only find the coat of arms.

The flowers depicted on these stamps represents six flowers commonly found in gardens such as bougainvillea, sacred lotus, morning glory and hibiscus.
