Traditional Festive Food

Malaysia is a unique country with various races and a myriad ethnic groups from Sabah and Sarawak that is rich in religions as well as different cultures and customs. This can be seen by the wide variety of food dishes that are served during festive occasions, by the different race and ethnic groups. The dishes vary widely in cooking styles, taste and decoration. The dishes shown on the First Day Cover are from Left to Right, Malay, Chinese, Indian, and then from Sabah and finally from Sarawak. I would like to mention here, that the 5 stamps on the FDC are only half the set. The other half of the set are another set of 5 stamps featuring the other half of the dish shown on the FDC. They were issued on the 10th of August, 2010 and all have a face value of 80sen. Thank you Budin for a very tasty ;-)) FDC.
