$1.40 - Forehead Headdress
The forehead headdress, adorned with pheasant tail feathers and elaborate fringes, is an accessory mainly for female martial roles in Cantonese opera. This forehead headdress was worn by Ms Ng Kwan Lai during her performance in the opera The Sounds of Battle in the 1970s.

Macau Post recently extend its Posta Restante service to Almirante Lacerda Post Office. I sent this FDC to Macau to try the new Posta Restante service. Surprisingly, when I got this FDC from the post office, I found an extra "Return to Sender" chop on the FDC.
