With “Shopping and Dining” as its theme, the four-day exhibition organised by the Hong Kong Philatelic Society with Hongkong Post as the main sponsor is a grand success.
Hongkong Post issued special stamp sheetlets on the theme of “Shopping and Dining” to highlight the quintessential charm of Hong Kong as a shopping paradise and a culinary capital.
The first stamp sheetlet was issued on 18 September 2014 and the second stamp sheetlet was issued on the opening day, 20 November 2015.
The Sheetlet adopts a stamp mounting card as its central feature with the addition of perforations on four sides, giving the stamp sheetlet the appearance of an oversize stamp.
Silhouettes of gourmet food and consumer goods are used to create the patterns of a cook cap and a shopping bag respectively at the centre, echoing the “Shopping and Dining” theme of HONG KONG 2015.
