KOTA BHARU: Despite the advent of social media and electronic messaging, greeting cards sent by post are still fashionable. The Kelantan branch of Pos Malaysia alone has handled over 4,000 Hari Raya greeting cards since the start of Ramadan.

Its general manager Osman Shah Mastor said that although the tradition of sending Hari Raya greeting cards began to decline with the advent of technology, Pos Malaysia would continue to serve as a “community liaison”, especially during the festive season.

He said a total of 38 Kelantan Pos Malaysia operations division staff have been assigned to process Hari Raya greeting cards from all over the country, while operations staff at the mail processing centre work from 8.30am to 6.30pm to ensure all the cards are processed and sent to recipients.

“We found that the number of greeting cards processed, especially during the festive season now, has decreased compared to previous years.

“As of May 4, our operations division had processed more than 4,000 Hari Raya greeting cards,” he said.

Osman said the highest number of Hari Raya greeting cards he had ever processed was 59,000 in 2015.

“Every letter including greeting cards received at the processing centre must go through certain processes before being sent to the recipient. Most of the mail comes from other states as well as around Kota Bharu.

“Once the letters arrive here, the operations team will start processing them and arranging them for stamping,” he said.

The letters are then sorted according to postcode and delivery area before being collected to be sent out to the delivery branches.

Osman also said Pos Malaysia has launched its Hari Raya greeting cards that are now available at 13 general post offices nationwide and can be purchased online at pos.com.my/shop. - FMT
