KUALA LUMPUR, Saturday - Fans of Ombak Rindu, one of Malaysia’s most romantic and sensational film to date, can now have the memories of the film immortalised in a limited edition SetemKu Album and Folder Set with the collaboration between Pos Malaysia and its film producer, Tarantella Pictures Sdn. Bhd. / Astro Shaw. Adapted from a popular novel by renowned novelist, Fauziah Ashaari, Ombak Rindu has made tidal waves in the local cinema since it was first shown on 1 December 2011, capturing the hearts of Malaysians with a sweeping romantic tale befitting the Shakespearean adage, "the course of true love never did run smooth".

The success of the film has inspired Pos Malaysia to form the collaboration and produce the SetemKu Album and Folder Set, the first of its kind produced based on a Malaysian film. The collection depicts scenes from Ombak Rindu on the personalised stamps which will certainly enhance the nostalgia of the film in the hearts and minds of its fans.

"Ombak Rindu SetemKu Album and Folder Set can be added to the fan’s collection, and relive the memories of the film which has touched the hearts of many. Apart from the annual issuance of our various thematic and commemorative stamps, we also offer other innovative stamps and philatelic products such as SetemKu, which allows our individual and corporate customers to print their own photos on the stamps. The versatility of SetemKu makes it possible for us to capture the beautiful scenes and iconic characters from Ombak Rindu and preserve them in the special album. In future, we look forward to collaborate with other players in the Malaysian film industry to produce other SetemKu products," said YBhg Dato’ Khalid Abdol Rahman, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pos Malaysia.

"We are proud to collaborate with Pos Malaysia to produce this one-of-a-kind SetemKu album which is a novel way to promote and market products including Malaysian films. Ombak Rindu is the first Malaysian film featured on a SetemKu Album," said Mr. Sharad Sharan, Producer for Ombak Rindu.

The limited edition Ombak Rindu SetemKu Album which contains 6 sheets of the personalised stamps (48 pieces of stamps) as well as 24 colourful pages featuring the different scenes from the movie that is also captured on the personalised stamps would surely delight the fans of the film. In addition to the personalised stamps, 11 Ombak Rindu postcards (ready to be posted with prepaid postage) are also included in the album as well as the DVD for Ombak Rindu and photographs from behind the scenes.

Apart from the album, Pos Malaysia also produced a special set of Ombak Rindu SetemKu Folder which contains the 2 sheets of the personalised stamps (16 pieces of stamps), 1 specially designed envelope and 7 Ombak Rindu postcards with pre-printed stamps. The SetemKu Folder is an affordable option to those who would also like to own the Ombak Rindu SetemKu collection.

The designs for the Ombak Rindu SetemKu sheets are different for the album and folder set, therefore, purchase of both products will complete the entire Ombak Rindu SetemKu collection.
