A water buffalo is depicted on one of two stamps in Thailand's June 14, 2019, release marking the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations with the Philippines.

In the Philippines, this animal is known as a carabao which is the namesake of Thailand's most popular rock band (the members formed the group while attending university in the Philippines).

In Thailand, the water buffalo is known as kwai. This is used as a derogatory term meaning "slow" or "stupid" as buffaloes are not well-regarded in this country. But everyone rocks out at concerts by the band Carabao so go figure...

On January 10, 1997 Singapore issued a set of 2 stamps (S.G. #s 861-2) for the Chinese New Year (Year of the Ox). During 1997, three "Year of the Ox" miniature sheets were issued for 3 international stamp shows: February 12, Hong Kong '97 (S.G. #MS863), May 29, Pacific '97 San Francisco (S.G. #MS895), and November 19, Shanghai '97 (S.G. #MS913). The Shanghai '97 souvenir sheet is shown here.

The regular sheet stamps were produced as single-value panes of 50. The 2 stamps were also sold in smaller, se-tenant sheets of 18, arranged so that se-tenant pairs could be collected vertically or horizontally.

The low value sheet stamps are inscribed "for local addresses only", while the low values on the miniature sheets are inscribed "22c".

Through the International Fund for Agricultural Development's Mount Kenya Project, the United Nations is helping to reduce poverty by improving farming methods and implementing more effective uses of natural resources. The buyer of this stamp contributed 45c to the Mount Kenya Project.

A female farmer/farmer's wife and her cattle are shown on the stamp. The inscription on the medallion says "farm animals for Kenya."
