|The Cebu Stamp Club cover with the authentic signature of President Cory Aquino for Richard Allan Uy
FAREWELL CORY AQUINO
Among my favorite president is Corazon Cojuangco Aquino. Popularly called Cory, she was a symbol of democracy here
in the Philippines. Her bout with colon cancer eventually led to her demise today,
August 1, 2009. She is one person that the world will surely
I will never forget the day I approached her in one of her campaign visits here in Cebu sometime
in April 1998 while she was campaigning for Alfredo Lim who was running for President. I was very privileged to have her sign
a Cebu Stamp Club cover which bears her different stamps. I will always treasure that uncancelled cover with her signature.
Madame President! Our prayers will always be with you... (by Richard Allan

Hi guys and gals of Cebu Stamp Club!
I was a member of this one of a kind organization here in Cebu when I was still in
College (that was not too long ago) and I enjoyed and learn a lot about techniques and art in stamp collecting. I got started
in this hobby when a friend left for another country and he left me all his stamp collection. From then, I want to continue
his passion and I started adding and adding his collection.
I am very pleased that
you continue working on the organization because I truly believe in its vision. Pls. update me of what's going on and I'll
try to be active when I have a spare time.
kumusta ang club? Dinhi South Africa, dili kayo sikat ang atong nasod, maala-an man ko Chinese
dinhi hehehe… hopefully the FILSAFS (Filipino-South African Friendship Society) will make the right move to promote
Cebu Stamp Club is a well organized club in Cebu, it's one of a rare kind so to say. CSCI is not just all about stamps but here you
will learn friendship and leadership. We believe through the world of stamps we express our nation, club and our personality.
Mabuhay Cebu Stamp Club, to our chairman Richard Allan Uy and to all the members.
