a mall show

Last year, from June 19 to 21, a philatelic exhibit showcased the collection of Renilo Abella of Cagayan de Oro City.

Shown at SM Cagayan de Oro were hundreds of topical stamps and covers.

It also featured a photo booth where the mall shoppers could have their souvenir pictures taken -- this was a large panel of tarpaulin full of colorful Philippine stamp images, with an opening for the people to look through and be photographed.
