A lovely FDC from Malaysia!

Once again, I would like to thanks Khor Kok Keong for sending this lovely FDC from Ipoh, Malaysia.

On 3rd September 2009, Malaysia welcomed the arrival of her first of two Scorpene submarines for the Royal Malaysian Navy. Named 'Kapal Diraja Tunku Abdul Rahman', after the first prime minister, the submarine left Toulon, France on 11 July on its 54-day journey with stopovers in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Djibouti and Cochin (India), finally arriving in Malaysia on 3 September.

To commemorate the special occasion, Pos Malaysia Bhd in collaboration with the RMN issued this set of 3 lovely stamps.
