ATM cover from Taiwan!

Gong Xi Fa Chai everyone! May everyone be blessed abundantly ya!

For today, I would like to share with you guys a cover from a country which I will be visiting this coming March, Republic of China, Taiwan! Many thanks to fellow blogger, George Wu for this lovely cover!
The 2 beautiful stamps franked on this cover are actually ATMs (Automatenmarken) from the "Flower of Tung Oil Tree" series. They were issued in April 2008 (red) and October 2009 (green) respectively.

Tung Tree (油桐) is a species of Vernicia in the spurge family, native to southern China, Burma, and northern Vietnam. The flowers are 2.5–3.5 cm diameter, with five pale pink to purple petals with streaks of darker red or purple in the throat.

That's all folks! See you again soon. ROARRR!
