Latest Youth Olympic Games Stamps!

The first-ever Youth Olympic Games will be held in Singapore which starts from 14 to 26 August 2010 (Beginning tomorrow!). Young athletics aged between 14 and 18 years, will complete in 26 sports and take part in a culture and education programme.

To celebrate this special event, Singpost is releasing another set of four beautiful stamps (This is the third stamp issue timed to commemorate the start of the inaugural YOG!).

The stamps come in a set of four designs featuring Singapore YOG mascots, Lyo and Merly
.

The first two designs highlight the World Culture Village and Island Adventure formats of CEP. Athletes will learn diverse cultures, teamwork and leadership through these two activities. The other two designs show Lyo and Merly engaging in the sports of swimming and basketball. Lovely!

The stamps are valued at 1st local (S$0.26), S$0.65, S$1.10 and S$2.00 respectively. (1 Singapore dollar equals about US$0.73)

I will be using these stamps on my next covers to my friends. Hopes they will help to spread the Olympic spirit in a fun way!

Talk to you guys again soon. Bye!
