You have landed on the philatelic hobby website of Masya S. Ong in Singapore.
Shosai is the name of my study/studio from where I roam the world through my stamp collection.
My collection covers most politically, culturally or economically significant countries around the world, but with a strong focus on Asia and Western Europe. These collections vary in their completeness, and I am now rounding them out focussing either on a time frame or on a theme. A brief listing can be found under the Collections tab. Highlights showcases selected collections in more detail, and - over time - Timeline will show them in chronological order.
I am selectively adding to my collections, either to develop a theme, or to round out an existing album. My wish lists are posted here for the purposes of swapping.
- Malaysia - Postmarks and regional definitives
- Singapore - Economic history
- Indonesia - Economic activity around Sumatra's Eastern Seaboard
- Australia - Birth and development of a Nation - part I
- Straits Settlements - Forwarding agents and their business
- Japan - People of Culture
