A Visit to a Fellow Stamp Collector

It is a rare occasion to get invited to a house of a stamp collector and see all his beautiful collections. Yesterday was one of those times.

Together with Edmund Gruenbaum, Cebu Stamp Club's official representative to Germany and Europe, we went to Cebu Stamp Club Board of Trustee Eyan Yu's house in Talamban, Cebu City to see his treasures.

Eyan Yu gave us an extra-ordinary treat to view his various collections of stamps, coins, die cast cars, model airplanes and choppers.

It was a very interactive morning as he talked about his collections, how he acquired them and what his expensive collections are.

A few hours after the interesting conversations on stamps and coins, it was time for us to leave. Of course, we didn't go home empty handed. Eyan gave me some U.S. stamps to add to my American Presidents on stamps collection. He also gave both of us a copy of the Kenmore Collectors Catalog 2009 Edition.
