First Underwater Royal Post Box
Pos Malaysia Bhd received new Malaysian Book of Records recognition for its efforts in installing the first underwater Royal post box in the country. Royal post was installed in Pulau Mensirip, about 45-minute boat ride from the Mersing jetty. On August 22, 2016, Malaysia Book of records representative presented the certificates to the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar who later, handed it to Pos Malaysia Group Chief Executive Officer Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, during the final day of 'Kembara Jelajah Pulau Mersing 2016'. Earlier, Sultan Ibrahim had also dived nine metres deep in Pulau Mensirip to place the Sultan of Johor logo on top of the post box and inserted a special waterproof postcard as a gimmick for its launching. Mohd Shukrie meanwhile said the installation of the new underwater post box was done through cooperation between Pos Malaysia, Communications and Multimedia Commission and Johor state government in promoting postal tourism in the country.
