flower paintings on stamps
It was August 3, 2014 when we went to the Phlpost and saw some employees from the Philatelic section doing last minute preparations . We thought that there will be some sort of stamp exhibit about the former President Corazon Aquino – There were several stamps , fist day covers from 1992 to the definitive issues of 1999 , Cory memorial stamps in 2009 and the latest scented stamp issues .
stamps and paintings ( replica ) on display
We thought the exhibit will show all of the stamps issued during President Corazon Aquino term of office  but we got dismayed on how the presentation of the  framed stamps were exhibited. We thought  that it was because of the security inside the mall that the real paintings which were featured on the stamps was not exhibited . All of the stamps are in private collections.
