The lick of love

PHUKET: To commemorate Valentine’s Day on February 14, the Communication Authority of Thailand (CAT) will be selling one million rose-scented postage stamps. Suwanna Suwanpetch, CAT public relations officer for Region 8, told the Gazette, “Thailand is the first country in the world to produce a scented stamp. Measuring one-inch across, the stamp will also be Thailand’s first square stamp.” The special-release stamps will be available from post offices across the country from February 1. However, at four baht each, buying stamps smelling of Red Antonia Ridge roses will cost twice the normal price. For sweethearts in Bangkok, the post offices in the popular marriage districts of Bangrak and Bangsue will be postmarking mail with heart-shaped date stamps.
