If there was ever any doubt pop stars like Anita Mui Yim-fong and Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing had left their mark on Hong Kong, it has been swept away by the postmaster-general issuing commemorative stamps to honour some late, great Canto-pop idols. The stamps, entitled 'Hong Kong Pop Singers', will be issued on November 8, the first time Hongkong Post has released stamps featuring popular singers. Pride of place on the most expensive stamp in the set, the $5 stamp, goes to actress and singer Mui. Her death in December 2003, following a battle with cervical cancer, plunged Hong Kong fans into mourning. Her death came just months after another Hong Kong favourite, 46-year-old Cheung leapt to his death from the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Central. His image appears on a $3 stamp. Roman Tam Pak-sin, the 'Emperor of the Stage' who died of liver cancer in October 2002 aged 57, will be featured on the $2.40 stamp. Danny Chan Pak-keung, 35, who is on the $1.80 stamp, died in October 1993 after falling into a coma 17 months earlier. Wong Ka-kui, lead singer with the Hong Kong band Beyond, was just 31 when he died from head injuries sustained after falling from a two-metre-high stage in a Tokyo television studio. He will appear on the $1.40 stamp. Postmaster-General Allan Chiang Yam-wang said: 'These stamps have been issued to commemorate the great achievements of some of Hong Kong's greatest entertainers. Both individually and collectively, they made a profound impact on Hong Kong people. 'They were all much loved and respected for their talent and for the joy they brought to the local music scene.' A special postmark, consisting of a musical note made of stars, and the words 'Hong Kong Pop Singer, 8-11-2005' in English and Chinese will also be issued. The stamps were designed by Hong Kong designer Michael Fung and printed in lithography by Dutch company Joh Enschede. The new issue will be displayed at the General Post Office in Tsim Sha Tsui and Tsuen Wan and the Sha Tin post office from today. Official first day covers at $1 also will go on sale today. Advance orders for souvenir covers will be accepted at 39 philatelic offices until October 24.
