Banjo on Hong Kong Postcard

Kun mailed me this lovely postcard from the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.  It portrays a lady dressed in traditional Chinese costume, playing what looks like a banjo, with a traditional garden in the background.  Thanks a lot Kun! =)

Kun used the $2.40 stamp from the 'Centenary of the Xinhai Revolution' series, with a newspaper-like layout and released on October 10, 2011.  The 1911 nationwide Xinhai Revolution overthrew China's last  imperial dynasty, the Qing Dynasty, bringing an end to thousands of years of dynastic rule in China.  The Republic of China was thus established.

Kun also affixed two stamps from the 2006 Birds definitive set: 10¢ White-bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) and 50¢ Scarlet Minivet (Pericrocotus flammeus).
