In my five-parter blog series on STAMP, I am featuring this yellow postbox with the fourth design that I’m voting for. This postbox has a cultural feel to it and has been painted to resemble a giant antique tiffin carrier (food container).

Antique Food Container Postbox

Back in the olden years, people used this multi-tier container like a lunch box. What made it efficient was that different types of dishes such as rice, vegetables and meat could be carried around, each one compartmentalised into a separate tier.

Floral designs on Antique Food Container Postbox

The artists have painted on pretty floral patterns that make the postbox look really quaint. Spot it at keong saik road in Chinatown. I can’t think of a location that is more apt for this particular postbox!
