This joint issue set of stamps features the local food fare of both Singapore and Macao respectively. It was launched in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival (annual event) organised by the Singapore Tourism Board.

For Macao, the food fare shows the claypot rice, grilled cod fish lices, yangzhou fried rice, crispy fried chicken and Carne de Porco a Alentejana (traditional Portuguese cuisine)

For Singapore, the food shown are the Chilli Crab, Roti Prata, Satay, Hainanese Chicken Rice and Laksa.

The designers for these stamps are Thomas Au Man Hou and Carlos Goncalves. The photographer for Singapore Food is Aun Koh.

I believe Aun Koh is the website owner of a food blog called chubby hubby.

An interesting point to note is that both Singapore and Macao have a very high population density. I once read that based on Singapore's population density, we could squeeze the entire world's population into South Africa! But guess what, Macao has an even higher population density than Singapore
