The Cebu Stamp Club cover with the authentic signature of President Cory Aquino for Richard Allan Uy

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 miss..


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.    


Farewell Madame President! Our prayers will always be with you... (by Richard Allan Uy)

The Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) issued on November 27, 2008 two stamps commemorating 25 years of the martyrdom of Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino.


The stamps valued at P26.00 and P7.00 is part of the iamninoy campaign to promote Ninoy's legacy and enforce in the youth his beliefs and values towards a country all Filipinos truly deserve. It also aims to encourage a sense of heroism among ordinary people from all walks of life.


Postmaster General Hector Villanueva believes that the stamps will serve as a reminder for future generations of the ideals Ninoy fought for. "His sacrifices to restore out rights and freedom through non-violence will forever live in the hearts and minds of our countrymen.." (by R. A. Uy for CSCI)

Manny Pacquiao Stamps

The Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) has released on May 30, 2008 the much awaited Manny Pacquiao stamps as a tribute for his exemplary achievement in the boxing ring which has brought pride, honor and glory for the country.

The stamps are valued at P7.00 in four different designs. A special issue for collectors is also available. Grab your copies now at the Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) philatelic section counters. (article by Richard Allan Uy, CSCI Newsletter June 2008 Issue).

From Niecyl:

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.


From Rizza:
