The Grey Reef Shark is bronze to grey in colour on top and a paler shade on its under-side, with a black outline on its tail fin. The species looks similar to the Galapagos Shark, save for the colouration of the tail.

Sunday Stamps - (D) Dinner with a Singaporean Family

For the letter D - Dinner with family
2018 - Singapore - Singpost's Evenings in Singapore

The stamp was one of the six designs released early last month, 2 August 2018. The six designs were about familiar evening scenes in Singapore. This particular stamp shows a family sharing a home-cooked dinner.

Somehow, this stamp makes me emotional as I don't have any of my family here in Singapore. However, from time to time, I get to enjoy a home-cooked dinner together with my two flatmates.
