Stamp "denda"

I once encounter a question, what's a stamp "denda" anyway?, from my colleague during the "blow water" session about hobbies. Well, I love collecting stamp, and I do have this stamp "denda".

Stamp "denda" is known as stamp postage due, is used for mail sent with insufficient postage. This stamp was introduced due to the customer who make their own decisions about the amount to pay without the assistant of the postal clerk.

The postage due stamps usually have a simple design which only consist large numeral with the word "postage due" to oversea country and "denda" to our country, Malaysia.

That's all for the short summary about postage due to Mr.One Line Eyes.

Do you still collect stamps nowadays?

I have some really nice stamps from Australia, on some postcards my friend sent to me. :)

I didn't know that there's such thing as "stamp denda", but I know we have to top-up for the insufficient postage.

This is the first time I saw a "stamp denda". Hehe. Thanks for sharing! :)
