Johor Straits Lighthouse, Singapore

I think this is my first lighthouse postcard from Singapore. It's so pretty, too, I really like the colours here.

Johor Strait Lighthouse is situated in the west of Singapore, facing the straits of Johor and opposite the Johor state of Malaysia. There's a wee bit of info here towards the end of the page, if I got it right it seems like this lighthouse is still active and in use.

I wish I received more postcards from Singapore, their stamps are so pretty! The ones on this card are no exception. The one on the left is from a set of 2 flower definitives issued in 2009, and the stamp on the right is from a set of 4 butterfly stamps issued in 2010, the one here showing the Common Birdwing.

I didnt see any postcards NEAR this beautiful for sale when I was there last so that makes this card extra special!

And it took me a full week to even find a postbox, I never saw an actual post office lol (bought my stamps at the mall).

That's weird! I've seen so many beautiful postcards from Singapore. Maybe Singaporeans don't send many postcards?? :/
