Beserah, Pahang, Malaysia

This very cute card is from the 'UK & Ireland to the rest of the world' RR that I sometimes join. Probably won't be joining any new groups for a while, though, at least not until the one I've already joined will be complete and I actually receive some cards from it :p Anyway. The theme for the group this card is from is 'cottages and country houses'. I love it how this is so different from what I would've expected!

The card shows a village house in Beserah, Pahang (Pahang is the third largest state in Malaysia, after Sarawak and Sabah). Nurulhuda, who sent me this card, tells me that often houses in villages around Malaysia look like this. They are made out of wood and are built on stilts (to avoid floods).

The stamp on the left is from a set of 8 stamps issued in 2005, depicting Birds of Malaysia. This one here is the Spotted Dove. The other stamp is from a set of 6 stamps issued in 2009, with the theme "One Malaysia".
